Excerpt: Its a Nice phone, satisfied with all aspect except the memory management. I dont have any issue using the phone in day to day use. But I am really disappointed on the memory management of the phone. When I use Internet, the memory occupies to 100% sometime. So i need to kill some application in the middle of the work to free some memory to proceed with the rest of the work. This is really irritating.
Excerpt: I've been thrilled with this gem. I've been using an unlocked German build (running in english) on T-mobile's USA network using wireless mode, as I don't have nor want a costly data plan. I'm petite, so the size is excellent (my boyfriend's Samsung Galaxy S is cumbersome and has leaped from his back pocket almost into oblivion). I'm new to Android phones, having been using a Windows Mobile 6 phone for the last 5 years, and am delighted to be current once again.
Summary: I bought this phone from this company, here on amazon. It was NOT a JCB special edition. They are still statIng in the advert that it is JCB but it is not BUYER BEWARE. CHANGE YOUR ADVERT TO REFLECT THE REAL PRODUCT...........
Summary: This is an excellent phone especially for the price I paid. (Thanks Amazon!) It does what I need it to do, and certainly quickly enough for me, the camera & display are good enough so I no longer need a separate compact camera. Battery life is really good for my v. light usage. I get just over a week with maybe a text & call per day, less if using the features of course. Well built too, for the outdoor type.
Summary: Does your Defy+ switch itself on and off randomly??? If so, here's the solution :) When i first used it, the Defy+ would randomly turn itself off and on again throughout the day. Esp when driving around or walking. This drove me mad until I did some research and discovered other users found the 3G HSDPA signal was causing the reboots. Crazy but true. IF THIS HAPPENS TO YOU - GO INTO SETTINGS / WIRELESS & NETWORKS / MOBILE NETWORKS / SELECT NETWORK. SWITCH TO 2G ONLY.
With a custom ROM it's just a great phone to use and almost indestructible

Summary: I've used this phone for over 2 years. During that time I've dropped it on tiles or concrete at least fifty times, it has been surfing in my back pocket once, it has gone through the wash twice. It still works like a new phone. The original Telstra supplied bloatware is atrocious, sucking the performance out of it, then Motorola put out an upgrade last year that made many of them unable to receive or make phone calls. :-).
Summary: I have always stuck with Nokia phones in the past, and it took a real leap of faith to plump for a Motorola. Not greatly promoted in the UK, the Defy+ is a great little phone! It may not be the newest smartphone around, but it works for me. I can get my e-mail, facebook, texts etc etc, and it even makes phonecalls too!!
Summary: This is the first smart phone I have owned, steering clear before, as I work outside in conditions that phones really don't like,dust, wet, constantly being banged or dropped. As the choice of non smartphones has become very limited the time had come to find something that was suitable for my line of work. Many of the phones on offer are far too big and after trying my wife's samsung to sensitive and fiddly.
