Smartphones are becoming an individual’s fashion statement and the trend is reinforced further by the recently launched HTC Butterfly S, HTC’s 5-inch-display device that now comes in attractive glossy colors of red, white, grey, and black.

With a suggested retail price of P37,590, the HTC Butterfly S is a powerful smartphone-slash-tablet, having some of the features of HTC’s flagship handset the HTC One.

Powered by a quad core Snapdragon 600 CPU (1.9 Ghz), it boasts of a Super LCD 3 display, UltraPixel camera, HTC BoomSound. The device’s 3200 mAh battery provides 659 hours of standby time.

HTC has positioned its top-of-the-line phones as professional-grade “camera phones” and the HTC Butterfly S is no exception.

The phone’s UltraPixel Camera can capture up to 300% more light than most 13 megapixel cameras in the market today. It also features a 28mm wide angle lens with an F/2.0 aperture.

The phone’s HTC Zoe feature shoots high-res photos in three-second snippets. It also enables advance editing such as sequence action shots and object removal to ensure that shots are “photo-bomb” free.

You can also make a 30-second mini movies through Video Highlights function. And the one-press sharing allows users to send the video with a simple screen tap.

The HTC BoomSound dual front-facing speakers feature built-in amplifiers. It’s also powered by Beats Audio, so you’d expect the sound coming out of it very loud but still rich and sharp.
