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.

Owned Defy and Defy+. Had other phones, and frankly the little motorola is an awesomely well balanced design. It is a little thick, but if that is the trade you have to make for a small bezel on small screen that fits easily in any pocket, i'll take it. Physically, my favourite phone ever. Decent loudspeaker, decent with headphones, was my companion at work, headphones in working through the rain in a mining job with great reception. Touchscreen sensative and accurate even with rubberized gloves on.

If only the processor and software were less buggy and laggy. It is truly the only letdown, with the camera being more subpar than a letdown. If Motorola released a V2.0 with a Tegra 3 and 1gb ram onboard with an Exmor R, 4.0" screen with even the same res but less bezel i'd buy it in a heartbeat. That truly would be the perfect handset for me as a working guy who needs an all conditions phone.

I've tried other handsets that are "IP67" and the Defy just seems to be better physically. It's compact nature makes it better while in your pocket and that actually counts when at work.

Synopsis: Great workmate.

This was truly an awesome phone by Motorola. I am running Kitkat 4.4.2 (CM11) on my defy+. The RAM being 512MB; it can't handle too much of multitasking, lags when doing so. Completed almost 2 years now. I have can have this device for a few more months. Probably my new phone will also be a Motorola.

I m using this since 2 years, and i m pleased to have Motorola experience. The phone has low RAM 512, which can't b load more apps, but having excellent safety features. No service center in India is a big issue.

Regarding upgrading. To you who want to upgrade to Kit Kat 4.4: You have to read several places to fully undertand how to do this, I did. I lernt that doing it in Windows is guaranteed to give you loads of unwanted viruses or Trojans! I did it in Windows, using USB cable and loading files to SD card of the phone. Good place to start is: And as always: Google! :-) The difficult part is rooting the phone. And be awake! Do it wrong, and you might have to buy new phone... Today I have Android 4.4.2 (XDE) w/latest Google keyboard that has swype and Emoji. It is maybe faster than before. Love my "new" Defy+!
