Yep, in China it retails for 4,799RMB (which is about $770 USD). In the US we can get good deals on phones because the carriers subsidize them. In China and other parts of the world no subsidies exist (at least not in the same fashion they do in the US).

I still managed to get DNA more than $200 less than that without any subsidy
Ebay FTW.

I'll be joining you guys today. I just ordered a Butterfly, I presume its a grey import (I'm living in the UAE). I'm a bit worried about battery life as I travel allot on business... How have you found the battery life?

Am I right to think that the Butterfly doesn't have the wireless charging of the DNA?

Actually, no too bad. I've heard someone saying it's possible to watch full hd movies for more than 4 hours.

Just a quick query... I have the phone set up now and its all good so far. However, is there supposed to be an NFC app on the phone? I guess not as it is possibly something that is controlled by the tags...

I ask, because there is nothing on the box saying NFC and there is nothing to indicate its on the phone. I suppose I'll just have to get some tags to test it.

On the x920e there is a NFC app but it seems to be some type of chinese crapware that I just haven't frozen yet. In settings, go to More - there should be a NFC option. If I tick the box next to it the letter "N" appear in the status bar next to the wifi icon.

I don't think the 920d have nfc. I don't see it in settings/more
Nope it doesn't....
