Default HTC J Butterfly

Well looks like HTC has announced a version of this phone, specs should be similar to what the Verizon version is going to be.

It looks really nice, only thing that worries me is battery life.

HTC Announces the J Butterfly for Japan 5″ 1080p Display, Quad-core Processor, and Fingers Crossed for Verizon Droid Life

Nice. It comes with microSD slot. Hopefully the battery is removable. 2020 mah battery seems not enough for a quad core LTE with 5" display.

So close yet so far. This phone looks amazing except for that one thing. I've always been an HTC fan but they just don't get it with the batteries.

Battery is a bummer, but did anyone else also notice how it has off screen soft keys? What's with the recent apps button? How are you supposed to get the menu button on this phone? Some apps have it on the top right, but most don't. My galaxy nexus puts the menu button on the right of the on screen buttons before I customized it. I guess you can probably shut the off screen buttons off and just get on screen ones with a custom rom, but it feels like those buttons are why this phone is unbelievably tall.

Yeah sometimes they have the menu button in the top or other times it is at the bottom.

I like on screen keys better, but at the same time I like bigger screens. The galaxy nexus is 4.65 but with the on screen keys it is really like 4.3, while it does go away for videos and some apps. I like a bigger screen for web browsing.

This phone looks killer though, hopefully the 2500 mah battery for Verizon is true.

I am going to purchase a razr hd maxx when I get up, but this phone is making me think twice. If I wouldn't have broke my phone and needed to get another one this would be the phone I got.

Luckily for me I usually get a new one when I really want it.
