LG Optimus G vs Sony Xperia Z vs HTC Butterfly – Specifications and Price Comparison



We’ll pay another visit to the Indian market, where last year, three smartphones were making waves – LG’s Optimus G, Sony’s Xperia Z and the HTC Butterfly. They come with the same hardware performance, so we’ll focus on other details such as screen resolution, cameras and batteries.
Displays and sizes
The Optimus G is smaller than its opponents and sits at the bottom of the ranking, featuring a True HD-IPS + LCD display of 4.7inches, whose resolution is 768×1280 pixels, being capable to offer a pixel resolution of 318ppi. The best thing about its screen is the Corning Gorilla Glass 2 protection, which saves you from the displeasure of touching a scratched display. The Xperia Z and the Butterfly models have 5inchers displays, TFT and Super LCD3 respectively, with an identical resolution of 1080×1920 pixels and pixel density of 441ppi. While the HTC device is using Corning Gorilla Glass 2, the Xperia Z comes with shatter proof glass on both panels and it’s water and dust resistant.
The thicknesses of these devices are 7.9mm (Xperia Z), 8.5mm (Optimus G) and 9.1mm (Butterfly), but the weights order is reversed, which means that the HTC device is the lightest and the Sony phone is the heaviest.
Hardware and OS
There’s no difference if we take a peek at their internal hardware components, as all three devices are powered by the same quad core 1.5 GHz Krait processor, based on a Qualcomm APQ8064 Snapdragon chipset (LG and Sony are also using the MDM9215M series). They use Adreno 320 graphics and have 2GB of RAM, while in terms of internal memories, only the Optimus G comes with 32GB of storage, unexpandable. The other devices have 16GB of storage and allow you to increase their capacities up to 32GB (HTC) or 64GB (LG).
The Optimus G and the Xperia Z came loaded with Android v4.1.2 (Jelly Bean), but the first device runs now on v4.4.2 (KitKat), the other was upgraded to v4.4.4 (KitKat) and it will receive v5.0 (Lollipop) anytime soon. At first, the Butterfly ran on v4.1.1 (Jelly Bean), then it was took a small step and received the v4.2.2 (Jelly Bean), but the rumors say that it will be upgraded to v4.4.2 (KitKat) someday.
Cameras
The Xperia Z provides a 13.1MP back camera and a 2.2MP front shooter, the Optimus G has a 13MP main camera and a 1.3MP secondary one, while the Butterfly has a weaker back camera of 8MP and the front camera is 2.1MP. However, all three devices share similar features such as LED flash, autofocus, geo tagging etc., but the Butterfly lacks HDR.
Batteries
The battery department has a winner, and that’s the Xperia Z with a 2330 mAh battery unit, being followed by the Optimus G with a 2100 mAh battery, and lastly, the Butterfly houses a built in battery of 2020 mAh battery.
Prices
LG Optimus G – 460 dollars
Sony Xperia Z – 405 dollars
HTC Butterfly – 476 dollars
