HTC One X+ vs HTC J Butterfly (HTC DLX)
4.2By Athanasios Zarkadas October 23, 2012 08:34 AM
There are two smartphones that are on everyone's mind and they are not from Apple or Samsung. These smartphones are known to us as the HTC One X+ and the HTC J Butterfly (Japan). The HTC J Butterfly will be coming to the rest of the world as the HTC DLX (as in deluxe). The specs are rumored to be a bit different but I will come back to that. For now, let us see how these next smartphone leaders match up.
First lets talk about display. The HTC One X already has the best display in smartphones at 4.7inches and 312ppi. It is the same display going in the HTC One X+. It is the S-LCD2 display that even looks amazing in sunlight. Now the HTC J Butterfly will have a 5inch S-LCD3 display at 440ppi. Without a doubt the HTC J Butterfly wins by knockout.
Moving on to design style, the new HTC One X + will have the same look and feel of the original HTC One X. If you have ever held the HTC One X you will agree that it is simply comfortable. No sharp edges or corners and designed with total comfort in mind. The HTC J Butterfly may be on the large side for some people. Not everyone can palm a basketball and there will be a lot of people turned off by the size. On the other hand we will have even small hand people that love the increased display and resolution. It will all come down to personal preference on this one.
As for the camera, we are looking at the same 8MP that is in the original HTC One X for both of these smartphones. After all, the original HTC One X camera is pretty much professional quality, so there is no need to mess with greatness. That is, till I heard what was coming in the HTC DLX (HTC J Butterfly for the rest of the world). Rumors are circulating stating that the new HTC DLX will have a 12MP camera. If that is true, then move over HTC One X+.
The processors for both smartphones are very different and will be interesting to see in a speed comparison. The HTC One X+ will be coming with the Tegra3 1.7GHz quad core LTE processor, 1GB of RAM with up to 64GB of internal memory. The HTC J Butterfly will have the Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.5GHz quad core, 2GB of RAM and only 16GB of internal memory. The one thing that gives the HTC J Butterfly a boost is that there will be a microSD slot. The speed test will have to be done to pick the winner here. One thing to mention is the fact that Tegra Gaming will be available for the HTC One X+.
The last thing that I will compare here is the battery. This is where we see the HTC One X+ score big points. With a smaller screen size, the HTC One X+ is packing 2100mAh to run on. The HTC J Butterfly is only coming with a 2020mAh battery. That just does not seem right to have a 5inch display with anything less than 2500mAh. The HTC DLX is rumored to be bringing a 2500mAh battery to the rest of the world. Till then the HTC One X+ wins.
Both of these smartphones are incredible and will be hard to beat. Other manufacturers have their work cut out for them if they want to compete against these super phones.

I'm really excited about both of these devices--it might be time to buy a couple of imports!

wow, was the first one to have a go with the one x+, so lucky! it is bloody amazing, you can really feel the difference, did some benchmarks tests between the x and x+, the x+ unsurprisingly won in every single catagory. It look gorgeous compared to the already amazing one x, and i really can't wait to get this, definitely worth the extra money, a real improvement! It will take a hell of a lot to beat this phone
