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.
Pros: Fast, Good Display, Call quality & Reception, Music
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.
Pros: Size, hand feel, Great battery, Auto on feature with mfr car dock, Gorilla glass, Rugged design
Cons: Camera, No media dock yet, Not avail through any US carrier yet, Rugged design requires covers on jacks
Summary: I personally think this is a great phone. Seems to me that it has more or less all the features of an up to the minute phone but at a third of the price. Maps, good camera, satnav, good touch screen - not sure what else you would want... It is also waterproof to a degree and has a toughened screen - there are very few phones with these features.
Reception, reception this what this phone is about, awesome

Summary: This phone is all about reception,it's fantastic. i live in the bush east of Grafton,nothing gets reception iphone4 if one climbs on rooftop one bar, this phone on the ground 4 bars and inside the house near a window 2 bars. camera is so so but it is a phone if i want to take pics i have Nikon. Want a phone that connects nearly anywhere this is it forget the rest as i have tried them all.
Summary: The Defy+ is great. Not the latest version of Android but it works fine, including my hosted Exchange service (Corporate Sync). The protection against water and dust is VERY useful for me. I have had an earlier model of Defy for several years and it was great. This newer model is noticeably faster and the battery life is longer (different battery type). I'm very happy with it.
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
10 June 2013
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. :-).
