whats the actual thickness of the two phones. The J Butterfly may LOOK thicker, but it may just be how the top of the phone is shapped due to whatever the hell that slot is for(SD/Sim idk). As you can tell on your DNA, the edges are quite round as it gets to the edge of the phone to make it appear its more slim than it actually is. Besides, were talking about like .5mm, which is rather insignificant.

It's actually interesting. The DNA's the "thickest" of the three. All the stats are from HTC websites.

DNA: 141 x 70.5 x 9.73 mm, 140g
J-Butterfly: 143 x 71 x 9.2 mm, 140g
Butterfly: 143 x 70.5 x 9.08 mm, 140g

figures, that curved edge is all just a trick to make the phone appear more thin, but I think it may also help with holding the phone too.

yup dna is actually thicker, when u put them side by side, the dna sits higher thus the center of the phone is thicker.

There is a 4th variant (Chinese version of Butterfly, x920e) although it has the same dimensions as the Taiwan version just a little lighter due to lack of micro sd.

X920e: 143 x 70.5 x 9.08 mm, 138g

So there is basically 3 versions of the same phone? I think the Butterfly is coming to AU - so any android development for the DNA is usable on the Butterfly?
