So let's look at what we have now.
Droid DNA without microSD but has wireless charging.
J Butterfly with microSD but no wireless charging for Japan
Butterfly without microSD and no wireless charging for China (X920e)

and now we have another butterfly which has a microSD slot but no wireless charging and this one is most likely the international version. (X920d)

I never thought of all the differences between the different variants of the Butterfly. I just thought the only difference between them was the microSD slot.

Japaneese version is the best

Wireless charging isnt good thing at all.

Japanese version = water resistance, microSD, soft-touch plastic rear panel.
Euro version = no water res., microsd, no soft-touch plastic rear panel.
DNA = crap...LTE is plus...but too tiny.... better use 3G and have water res and microsd (16+64gb microSD)

ok
the diffences are more subtile than that.
the DNA and the X920e (not actually referred to as the butterfly) are 1:1 analogs
the wireless charging is in the backplate, and can be enabled. other than the backplate and Chinese software, it is 100% the DNA.

the j butterfly is also the same phone, but with 2 differences (back plate, and SIM board) the sim board is the external interface board, has the camera, sim card, ant, and others. their backplate is larger at the top to accommodate the sdcard mounting location, (and moreso the access door)

I have not seen the butterfly (non J) but it seems to be the J butterfly with english software (multi ling)

most of this info is from teardowns....
and yes it the parts are sourced, it seems we can get a SDCARD on our phones.

they all are water res, they are all glued and sealed togeather, the wireless charging is within the standard, and "easily" increased by 25% (or more, haven't done the #'s for more than ~25%)
the soft touch doesn't matter if you use a case. - but i agree, I would have liked more options.
LTE is awesome, don't hate a phone because it has it and you cannot get the service.

they are all "waterproof" better term is "splash-proof"
by what i see, it is NOT Qi compatible with stock cover.
64 may work fine...
did you know, the DNA is global? but the butterfly doesn't have LTE.
so really, IMO a modded DNA is the best of both worlds.

3G can't compare to LTE, here its 1mbps down vs 20+

I'm so confused, people are saying different things. I know the J butterfly is for Japan only but I've read in many threads that the butterfly is only for China and there were no plans yet to bring it to Europe. Is that accurate?
