Hi guys, ok so now i have both phones, and i have provided some pictures bellow. I will soon take the butterfly apart and reveal the inside and answer some long awaited questions, but based off initial views i can almost promise none of us would be able to add SD card support from the j butterfly to the DNA. The reason i say this is because the J butterfly is about a mm or so longer in length than the DNA is, (i guess to support the infrared and sd card reader) but ya installing the sd card reader from the butterfly to dna would prove undoable since the back cover from J butterfly would not fit on the DNA.

Note: Verizon did a much better job detail wise on the DNA than the HTC J Butterfly is done but AU. The grill where ear speaker is, is not red like the DNA its just black and plain, the back HTC logo is not embossed and is only just printed small, gloss feel on the J butterfly is not bad, but i prefer the DNA's soft touch feel, and although the DNA looks thinner, it sits a little more raised on its back than the butterfly is. Ok here are some pics. I will do a video on it later.

Lol ya, a lot of people would say the dna was a downgraded j butterfly, but aside from the sd card, i honestly think the dna is a more well built, better feeling, more sturdy phone. The j butterfly feels too plasticy and doesnt have the small details like the red grill for the earpiece or the bolder htc logo to make the phone stand out more.

The Butterfly's noticably thicker. It'll be interesting to see what the diffrences are between the internals.

The differences look to be pretty slender. Here is a comparison of all 4 variants of the Butterfly: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2081771

You might want to think twice depending on where you live and where you're going to use it. It's not a global phone. It supports quad-band GSM for voice but only 850/2100 MHz for HSPA which makes it incompatible in some regions.

Gotta say the front looks a lot cleaner without that Verizon logo though!
