Summary: I fell on my previous Defy phone and wanted to replace it with a phone that had the same form factor. That is getting hard these days. All phones are getting bigger, and I'm not a fan of big phones. This phone works fine, but it doesn't get the 3G connection from T-Mobile, just the "edge" connection for data. That is slower than 3G and that is a disappointment that I'm learning to live with.
Summary: I bought this retarded phone when it was $205. I didnt like it. It is like I got a used one after a couple of months. I read only positive reviews in making the decision and I thought it was a nice phone for two months. It then started declining in function. The gps, android etc is a joke. One thing I learnt is, when you read reviews, start with the negatives and long ones. Some people really add their expertise on their reviews, which I like. Now, almost non-functional.
Summary: This phone is a good entry level android phone. It doesn't come with the bells and whistles of some of the others but it definitely gets the job done. The good...it is water resistant so getting wet in the rain is no problem. The bad...well 4 aspects of the phone annoyed me, however they aren't complete deal breakers. 1) You have to create individual folders on the phone to allow unique ringtones, alarms and notifications.
Pros: - Gorilla glass and water/dust proof cover take a beating - Strong and fast wi-fi connection - Takes sharp pictures in daylight, or with bright lights - Small size fits everywhere - Very touch sensitive, quick response for texting or web browsing
Cons: - Camera is slow, slow, slow & takes bad pictures at night or low light - Freezes up often and/or crashes - Have to have a motoblur account. - Bloatware (T-mobile)
