I want to buy defy +,its my 1st android device,may i buy it,after reading reviews of all users that it rebooted many times in a day why???, iam confused to buy it, plzzzzz. help, or it is a good phone to buy
Now Google acquired Motorola mobile, In Android OS 4, Ice Cream Sandwich, front camera is necessary but in this Phone no front facing camera is there, This phone is very good and with loads of features but main disadvantage is No Front-facing camera. Company should launch new phone with all this rough-tough features with front facing camera, dual core, good battery power, and 1 GB RAM. This model will be the hit mobile in the market with good features and with rough-tough feature.

it's fine, awesome and not slowly....!!
updates for 2.4.6 are already available in the Philippines. Anyone got problems with the update? tnx.
I have had this phone for about 6 months now.
I would sum it up like this:
- size of phone and general hardware design great
- performance and battery great
- build quality a bit suspect (my mini usb plug point is off centre causing cable connection issues and back cover has opened itself a couple of times)
- software poor imo and I have removed anything to do with Motoblur. Motorola denying updates unless you have a Motoblur account is really really poor.
My phone has rebooted itself about 5 times in 6 months that I have noticed. It is when I have had many applications open then slept it and later woken it up. I assumed it was clearing applications and ram and an ok thing. I think that the reboot issue reported by other here must by different to that.
It is really hard to find a 3.7" device that still looks and feels so small as the Defy+. It being waterproof and rugged is also a bonus.
In regards to ICS, the Defy+ and the Neo V. The Defy+ is not good enough for ICS because the GPU is slightly under what is required. The GPU on the Neo V just meets the requirement but Sony are still recommending that Neo V users stay on Gingerbread as ICS will not perform well on the Neo V which only meets minimum ram, processor and GPU requirements (and ram will be an issue). I don't see the Neo V ICS upgrade as a huge advantage.
IMO the advantage that the Neo V has over the Defy+ is the software and build quality. If Sony built the Defy+ we would have a better quality Defy+ and a slightly higher price .... and I would have been happier :)
Defy+ sucks, 02 Apr 2012Go for Neo V, cheaper and perfectly stable! It will have an official ICS upgrade this month, t... moreyes, such a great job that the update won't actually be coming out this month.
What is with all the fanboys on here. Some facts, truth and perspective please.
PRIDE, 01 Apr 2012If you want ics, and less buggy software, then get the Neo, Defy Plus will not be getting an o... moreBefore you give that sort of advice about ICS on the Neo you should read Sony's own public statements discouraging people from upgrading to ICS on the Neo as it won't run as well as Gingerbread.
I got my Defy+ on the first week of March in Bangalore. Faced reboot issues. Got the handset replaced, not before a hard fight. Motorola policy says replacement is done only if reported within a week! So all you new buyers, don't wait if you have a problem. Now the replaced phone - This one has proximity sensor issues. It just won't work. Am out of patience now. Will just dump it in the garbage bin. I would suggest all you prospective buyers to think again with Motorola. There are better phone makers in market right now, why buy a problematic device. And their customer service is as good as non existent. Their people out there are simply clueless about anything!
ajay, 05 Apr 2012is this phone still having auto reboot problems in new models???Yes it does. I got mine replaced last week!
I have just lost my Defy Plus, its stolen; and when I called the Motorola helpline in India to help me detect as specified on their pack, they plainly refused to offer any help, despite the fact that I had bought it with a Bill; its a hopeless service and phone was damn slow... Pls avoid putting ur money into it; also I had a scratch on the screen despite the claim of it being scratch resistant...AVOI AVOID AVOID!!!
Jagan, 02 Apr 2012Defy+ spec suits best for me, but the rebooting issue annoys me. Is it advisable to buy Defy+?... moreit reboots like no tommorrow rebooted since i bought it thought i had solved it bye turning it to 2g was going ok for a bit has now gone crazy again so so dissapointed going back to my trustly old nokia 5230 again nokia might not be huge anymore but bye god they can put a phone together properly
defy+ sucks, 03 Apr 2012You are giving a false statement and you really don't know what you are talking about. Maybe y... moreHold a neo v play games, stream vids just for abt 30 mins and U will need an air conditioner thats y neo v sucks at least defy+ is better it wudnt heat anyway.
