It is what the HTC One should\\\\\\\'ve been, but with a very big body and the same problematic 4MP image sensor it will be hard to compete against the best of Sony, LG, Nokia and Samsung (and Google and Xiaomi and Oppo and Huawei and Alcatel and ZTE).

I love the battery size, the SD600 I do not understand though, this is not February anymore.

wow that\'s rather low. i expected it to score more than the xperia z, at least. the battery is a huge factor it deserves a better score.

The camera killed it, it would\'ve been perfect if it had a decent or above average 8/13 mpx camera.

The UltraPixel camera is very underrated in reviews because it\'s actually one of the best if not the best camera out there!

.... I haven\'t played with it, so I can\'t say much, but from what people are saying, it does great at night shots but other than that, not so. And to be honest, 4mpx is not enough for some or most people, if they can come up with an 8mpx Ultra Pixel then it\'d be great.

But I like the video recording, I saw the sample and it was really good.

HTC should stop all this 4mp ultrapixel nonsense.
Make it 8mp ultrapixel, then we can talk.

Don\'t know how the device got an 8... it should get at least 9. Its a beautiful device with a beautiful screen. Def looks better than any galaxy device.

I bet it is because it lacks the apple logo...

note: I am not an apple fan at all, but since this site is so bias to apple product.... ;)

The Flash Player support feature alone should bring the score up to 9.5/10 already...

I didn't actually know that until I saw your comment, I completely agree with you and I'm beginning to really consider this phone, unfortunately it will be difficult to get my hands on.

If the HTC One and this Butterfly S phone released at the same time, the latter would deserve a higher score. It's better in every conceivable way almost. It's just not metal and the screen's a bit dimmer. Also, I love the stupid "Con" they threw there about it being large, thick and "unwieldy" - it's mindsets like this that's making battery life suffer, due to each trend to make the most anorexic phone.
