HTC Butterfly, also known as J Butterfly in Japan and Droid DNA internationally, was the first 5-inch full HD phablet with a beautiful 1080p display and high-end specification. HTC Butterfly is a very powerful handset, an experience price tag is the unfortunate tradeoff. If pricing is a matter for you, take a look at this Chinese handset called “Jia Jia Tong X920e”. Its facade design is basically identical to the genuine, featuring a curved 5-inch IPS display. Unfortunately, it’s only a 720p display. It includes a 1.2GHz quad-core MT6589 processor and 1GB of RAM that ensures Android 4.2.1 to run smooth and snappy at a reasonable price. Despite that, the clone is actually not as fast as the Butterfly even both machines are also powered quad-core processor.
