It is not uncommon for one phone manufacturer to create more than one type of phone. Usually, this is done to appeal to more than one market. Believe it or not, one size does not fit all--meaning that one phone design is not enough to please everybody. This article does compare the two, but be aware that one is cheaper than the other and so is going to have lower specs, plus things such as being waterproof or having a better camera may factor more highly in some people’s minds than the processor speed and resolution do.
► Internal storage and Supported cards
The internal storage capacity of the HTC One is either 32GB or 64GB. This is a massive amount, but you should also consider the fact that you cannot expand the memory on your HTC one with a card. With the HTC Butterfly you may expand the memory with a MicroSD card, which is why it only has 16GB of internal hard drive memory. Still, both are able to use cloud storage if you need extra memory.
► Their different sensors and the speaker volume
Both of them have GLONASS, a gyroscope, A-GPS, a compass, a proximity sensor and an accelerometer. The HTC One also has a light sensor too. They both have a speaker volume that is 6dB; however, the HTC One does push slightly ahead with a 0.3 extra difference.
► The battery in each of them
They both have a Lithium-Ion Polymer battery, which is unsurprising as they both probably come from the same factory. The Butterfly has a 2,020 mAh battery, whereas the HTC One has a 2,300 mAh battery. The HTC One battery has a very large battery for this type of mobile device. The batteries are non-removable. With the Butterfly you get over 500 minutes of talk time, and with the HTC One you get over 800 minutes of talk time.
► The video capacity of both phones
Both of the phones have video resolutions of 1920 x 1080 @ 30 fps. The HTC one has a video file format of MP4 DivX and the Butterfly uses MP4 H.264/MPEG-4 AVC. The maximum bitrate is 20 Mobile phones. The HTC One has a video light, whereas the butterfly does not.
► The camera on each phone
The HTC One has an f/2.0, 3.8 mm (28.7 mm equiv.) lens. The HTC Butterfly is slightly better at f/2.0, 4 mm (30 mm equiv.). The camera resolutions run at 4.1 MP (2688 x 1520) for the HTC One, but a massive 8 MP (3264 x 2448) for the HTC Butterfly. They both have the 1/3" (4.8 mm × 3.6 mm) sensor and an LED flash. They both have Panorama and Auto-focus, but the HTC One also has optical image stabilization and continuous shooting. They both have a secondary camera at the front of the phone and they run at 2.1 mega pixels.
► The display you have to play with
The HTC One has the smaller screen at 4.7 inches. The Butterfly has a five inch screen, and both of them have a 1920 x 1080 (468 ppi) resolution. Both phones have a Super LCD3 (RGB) screen. The HTC One screen is slightly brighter than the Butterfly which is 647 cd/m² against 501 cd/m². The HTC One also has better contrast in sunlight being 2.504 against 1.873. The surface of each device is Gorilla Glass version 2 and both have a video out feed of 1080p with a Micro USB port. The HTC Butterfly may also use a MHL.
► The processors
Judging the quality of the processors is more something that technical experts should do, as they both appear pretty good to this reviewer. The HTC One uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 (8064T) and the HTC Butterfly uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro (APQ8064) processor. The HTC One processor runs at 1.7 GHz, with the ARM Krait 300 and the Butterfly runs at 1.5 GHz, with the ARM Krait Architecture. They both have four processors,
They both have the GPU Qualcomm Adreno 320 that runs at 400 MHz. This again is unsurprising, as they are both probably made in the same factory. Both have GPUs that are also quad core, and each has 2GB of RAM.
It is easier to see that if both had come out at the same time, which the HTC One would have been the most expensive as it is more sophisticated. But, let us not forget that the HTC One has a smaller screen and its camera only has half the megapixel that the Butterfly has. So, the choice is yours as to which you buy, but both are fine phones.

If you are ready to take your business to the next level, you should consider getting some promotional items that you can give away at large social events, industry conferences, etc. These promotional items come in all shapes and sizes, from t-shirts to coffee mugs, magnets, and even USB drives. But the key is getting these items personalized with your business's name and logo on them. In this way, they will advertise your business wherever the owners of the items go.
You may be stumped, though, with regards to which promotional items are really worth purchasing and which ones are going to be discarded right away. Continue reading to learn three tips that you can implement on social media to get the answers you need.
Run a Contest on Social Media
One clever way to get some answers from your followers on your favorite social media pages, such as Facebook and Twitter, without flat-out asking them what their favorite promotional items are, is by running a contest. This contest can be anything that you want it to be, so work with your staff members to come up with a really creative idea that will get as many of your followers interested as possible. Let them know that the reward for the contest will be, for example, a promotional code and a free gift from the company. Allow the winners to decide between your staff's three favorite promotional items. This will help you determine which of the three items are actually the most popular amongst the public.
Ask Your Followers on Your Social Media Pages
Because there are so many different promotional items available, you can simply ask your followers what promotional items they prefer to get from companies and which ones they have honestly thrown out or disregarded completely. You may be surprised by how honest and open people will be with you, especially if you already have a social media community that is fully engaged in what you have to say and what you offer them on your pages already. The key, though, is keeping track of the answers that you receive and then using that data to determine what promotional items you will invest your hard-earned profits in.
Get to Know Your Followers
If you can find the time, access the public profiles of some of your followers on social media. Get an idea of what their occupations are. If you do not want to spend the time doing this type of research, you can conduct polls and surveys to get the same information. Get an idea of what your audience loves to do in terms of work and recreation. Then use this information to pick the promotional items that they will absolutely love and never think to throw away.
You can use social media for variety of purposes when it comes to promoting your business. Even when searching out the best promotional items, you can engage your audience and get the answers you need so that you make the wisest investments only.

The recent spurt in the demand for budget-friendly smartphones has brought about a rise in the number of new budgeted entrants in the smartphone arena. Tech giants, who dominated the smartphone market years ago, are now struggling to maintain that same position in the market. Apple, Samsung, Sony, and HTC now face severe competition in the smartphone market, with the introduction of new smartphone manufacturers. With so many options, consumers are left spoilt for choice.
The new smartphone entrants offer smartphones that are not only loaded with the latest features, but are quite economical as well. This helps them woo the public into choosing their smartphones over other popular phone choices.
Micromax – An Emerging Tech Giant
In recent times, Micromax has proved to be quite a threat for the established smartphone manufacturers such as Apple and Samsung. This emerging giant has been launching new smartphones throughout the year, steadily gaining the trust of its customers.
Besides the several popular smartphone brands that Micromax has launched in the market, the company has gained tremendous popularity owing to the success of its flagship brand, Micromax Canvas.
From the Canvas Fun to the Canvas Doodle and the more recent Canvas Turbo, this flagship brand has managed to help the company gain a foothold in the flourishing smartphone market.
Micromax Canvas – The Brand Is Creating A Rage
One of the pivotal reasons for the success of Micromax’s Canvas range of smartphones is the reasonable price, which lies well within the reach of the common man. Feature-hungry consumers, especially youngsters, prefer to opt for phones that belong to this brand, as they get hold of the best and latest features at prices much lower than that offered by Smartphone Kings like Samsung, Apple and Sony.
Micromax has launched many impressive smartphones in the Canvas range, such as HD A116, 2 Plus A110Q, 3D A115, Music A88, Doodle A111, Viva A72, and Canvas 2 A110. The company has recently launched a new smartphone in the Canvas range, named the Micromax Canvas Turbo A250. This smartphone has been launched with the intention of helping the company retain its popularity among the budgeted sections of society.
Let’s take a look at the rise of Micromax Canvas as a brand through its many smartphone models.
The Rise Of Micromax – Its Many Devices
The Micromax Canvas HD A116
With a 5-inch capacitive touchscreen, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera, the dual-SIM Canvas HD has won the hearts of many, ushering in the success of the brand Canvas.
Currently priced at around INR 13,990, this device has been able to give the youngsters just what they need – tons of latest features at an affordable price.
The Micromax A115 Canvas 3D
In June this year, Micromax added a new member to the Canvas family, named the Micromax A115 Canvas 3D. This smartphone has a 5-inch display, a 5-megapixel camera at its rear end and a VGA camera that is quite convenient for video chats.
The phone also has a few drawbacks, one of them being that it is rather bulky in size. Despite that, the phone has been quite a success, as it offers its users a 1 GHz dual-core processor and a 512 MB RAM. Priced well below the ten-thousand mark, this smartphone is one of Micromax’s key devices in the budgeted smartphone segment.
The Micromax Canvas 4 (A210)
The Canvas 4 promises to surprise many with the introduction of new features. It allows its users to unlock the phone by simply blowing against the screen or by shaking the device. This 5-inch HD IPS touchscreen smartphone is powered by Android’s version 4.2.1, called Jelly Bean. Boasting of a powerful 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapxel front camera, this phone is quite an improvement on its predecessors.
Like the Canvas HD, this device is driven by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, and has a 1 GB RAM. Once again, the company manages to keep its phones quite within the reach of the masses.
The Canvas 4 has been priced at about INR 17,990. Keeping in mind the features that this smartphone has to offer, the price seems quite humble.
The latest addition to the Canvas family is the Micromax Canvas Turbo A250, which comes with many improvisations. The Micromax Canvas Turbo A250 price is currently INR 19,990. This smartphone makes every attempt to strengthen the grip that this flagship brand has on the masses.
One of the most commendable aspects of this smartphone is its aluminium body, which makes it sleek and durable. Its 13-megapixel rear camera and 5-megapixel front camera helps you indulge in decent photography.
Keeping in mind the Micromax Canvas Turbo A250 price, multiple top-notch features have been packed into the device, including a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 2 GB RAM, the latest version of Android (4.2.1 – Jelly Bean) and a 2000 mAh battery.
The Future Of Brand Micromax Canvas
Looking at the variety of smartphones that this brand has come up with, it appears that the brand is here to stay. The success of the Canvas HD and the Canvas 4 has paved the way for the Canvas Turbo, which has just been launched into the smartphone market. The Micromax Canvas Turbo A250 price is affordable enough for customers who desire the latest features on their phones.
This flagship brand has helped the company make its way into the mainstream market, rivaling the likes of Apple, Samsung, and Sony, whose smartphones are priced much higher than the Micromax, even though the features on offer are almost the same.
Even in the months and possibly years to come, this flagship brand is bound to continue its winning spree with the introduction of many more smartphones that target the masses of society.
