I bought this phone in Jan 2011 till now using this phone.

Last year met with an accident and phone became curved, battery was curved, screen broken. I adjusted everything properly. Changed touch screen and using it till date.

I think this is the best phone of its time.

People commenting tht its not good, they need to check the manufacturing date of the phone. During the time when it was launched it was the best deal. I did a lot of under water shoot in my swimming pool with this phone.

Good phone with the exception of only 512MB RAM and obsolete Gingerbread (2.3). Good solution is upgrade to Jelly Bean (XDA Developers). ROM is VERY stable, no bugs at all, excellent performance and UP TO 250 FREE RAM

Using a recent 4.4 (Quarx) on mine, you have to be real careful with the free ram otherwise it'll reboot and there's this annoying black screen bug when i'm calling or receiving calls. But anyway i like my rugged little phone regardless.

Bad Phone - wireless signal sucks. a smartphone without a good wireless connection it's useless - IT HAS ONLY 3G NETWORK. if u switch it on 2g u won't be able to receive any calls. and if u switch it on automatic, your phone battery will last .

Bad Phone

- wireless signal sucks. a smartphone without a good wireless connection it's useless
- IT HAS ONLY 3G NETWORK. if u switch it on 2g u won't be able to receive any calls. and if u switch it on automatic, your phone battery will last only few hours, the continuous search of the signal will drain the battery extremely fast. Recharging it 4-5 times on a day it'll make u hate this phone. So.... only 3g network it's the only option. Still, the battery won't last at least 24h. I've tried not to use it for apps, just for short calls, to see the maximum duration, and it was 20-23 hours the best.
- also problems with the gsm signal.
- the touchsreen not so resistant, my cat walked on it when it was recharging, on the bed, and now it has a lot of dead pixels. Resistant phone? On water I guess. Who need that anyway? I don't swim with my phone.
- not enough RAM, the phone is getting slower fast, u often need to kill apps with task manager. Maybe too often. To install a new app u must delete another.

In conclusion, it was the worse phone I ever had. It made so frustrated that I bought next a Samsung and I've remained a Samsung fan ever since.

It has some downs but not hell as you say. Only problem i had with the speaker. It's rooted, moded with at least 4 custom roms and still works. Sure it has some quirks because of the mods and the device it's not a state of the art by default but anyways....not hell.

this phone is perfectly matching with who don't care of his phone and servivers. i got lots of experience(installing custom rom,stock rom,rooting,unrooting,bootlooder unlocking). i recomend cm9 ics.
do not use this following roms. 10 jb 11 kk
this roms are too lagging,freezing.wasting time to responding. google play is not working.yo can install back your stock rom using RSDlite.
exchange your phone to them- nokia x family phones(x,xl,x2,x+)
or motorola moto G

I have a DEFY+ and it is the worst phone I have ever had. It keeps switching itself off and on at the most inappropriate times. If I am using an app when someone phones me I can't answer it. The screen keeps jumping about if I try to text or use the internet in bad weather. It keeps freezing so I end up having to remove the battery and switch it back on. Definitely the last time I get a motorola. Other family members have Samsung phone. I am definitely switching to them when this contract runs out.
