The HTC Butterfly is the first commercially available smartphone to feature a full HD 1080p screen.
The phone has a large 5-inch screen, but HTC doesn't like to call it a phablet.
The Butterfly features a Super LCD 3 display with Corning Gorilla Glass 2 and has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels.
There's a greyish brown metal strip right above the earpiece, which gives a phone a premium feel. The earpiece grille sports red colour.
The back of the phone has a soft rubberised matte finish.
The 8-Megapixel camera lens is located towards the top, and the lens unit doesn't protrude out and is flush with the body of the phone.
The phone also features a notification LED just adjacent to the camera lens at the back.
The Beats audio branding and the speaker outlet is located towards the bottom of the phone.
The bottom panel features a microphone and a rubber insert which hides the Micro-USB port.
The power/screen lock button sits on top, in the middle, along with a secondary microphone and an insert that hides a slot for the SIM card and the microSD slot.
The right side features the volume rocker, which is also red in colour, just like the pseudo-side grille.
The front also features three capacitive touch buttons and their markings,used for navigating the phone.
The SIM card slot is really cumbersome and it took us a while to figure out the mechanism for placing our SIM card inside the phone.
There are no controls on the left side.
The 2.1 Megapixel front shooter is located at the left side, below the earpiece.
