    Why isn’t Indonesia included? It is the biggest country in South East Asia and it won’t be available there?? BIG mistake

    I’m a big fan of HTC since the first time using my HTC Wildfire S few years ago. I’d love to see this HTC Butterfly 2 in Malaysia but I hope the price will not blow a hole in my pocket. HTC is famous here for selling mobile phones with it’s quite high-end price.

    These type of devices should be global. I really like the blue one.

    Why didn’t the HTC one m 8 come with the 13 mp more advanced camera? Kinda disappointed when I got it on release and it’s the same camera as last year’s model…
