    Welcome to the forums.

    = (and) despite that

    He's overweight and bald, [and] yet somehow, he's incredibly attractive

    But = #1 used to introduce an added statement, usually containing something that is different from what you have just said.

    The Harry Potter books are enormously successful, but I prefer Philip Pullman's books.

    = #2 "except for the fact"

    I would have walked into the tree but your shout prevented me.
