Question Case for HTC Butterfly X920D

Hello guys!
I bought the new HTC Butterfly X920D (Taiwan version). And now i need choose any case for this device.
I know that there are many cases for american Droid DNA version, but they are both have different sizes. Taiwan version is little higher then american one. Difference between X920D and DNA is only 2 mm. So if i'll buy any case from Droid DNA will be there any problems?
Nexus 5 awaiting...

I would be amazed if they were actually different sizes. I doubt HTC would not use as many interchangeable parts as possible.

I have a x920D as well and bought a Nilkin Droid DNA X920e case which doesn't quite fit properly. It is, like you say, a little higher so I had to modify it a bit but even then does not fit snugly.
Guess we have to wait a little more for proper cases for the x920d to be made.

Hi, i have bought HTC Butterfly X920D from Singapore and i bought the casings (Poetic Atmosphere, Diztronic).

i can confirm that both casings designed for DNA will not fit HTC butterfly

Default x920d vs x920e

x920d is the Taiwanese International variant of the Butterfly. x920e is Verizon (and possibly Mainland China's) variant of the Butterfly.

There is a subtle difference in dimension as mentioned earlier in this post where the x920e variant is SHORTER than the x920d.

So far, you can't get any cases for "x920d" anywhere other than Taiwanese retail and HTC stores.

Most if not all of the hard cases that are on the internet (e.g eBay), are all designed for x920e model, and they WON'T fit the Butterflies bought from Taiwan.

If you desperately need a case right now, I suggest purchasing the silicone/TPU gel cases as they can stretch to fit the x920d variant, although you might find the sound, and some microphone cuttings won't perfectly align. However, it'll perfectly protect your case. Better than nothing, right?

Hope this helps.

For me, it's better to get a case to protect our phones. my friend got her HTC case at Minisuit. You may want to try it too

I just bought an x920d and the store gave me a case for free, but it's for the x920e!! If I cut off the top bit (the bit that goes over the power button area) will it fit?
