It features the new Krait 300 quad-core processor with the clock set at 1700MHz, 2GB of RAM and graphics are taken care of the Adreno 320 GPU.

GLBenchmark 2.5 3D graphics performance

HTC One
46 fps
Butterfly
36.6 fps
We expected the HTC Butterfly to rip the competition apart and perform among the lines of the Xperia Z. And the results did not disappoint for the most part, save for the unfortunate lack of GLBenchmark and Quadrant scores.

GLBenchmark 2.5 battery Battery life for 3D graphics apps

HTC One
155 min
Butterfly
120 min
To be specific, heavy usage that consists of web surfing, texting, sending emails, and occasional phone calls permits almost 24 hours of battery life – a pretty good tally for a 4G LTE packing smartphone.
