Motorola DEFY + vs Ericsson Active
I've been using this device for weeks now. My review in one word, its brilliant. Handy to use, good sensitive screen and specifications that match the rugged usage.
For all the blabbering about Defy+ not getting the official ICS, I remember 1.5 years back I bought the first android from AT&T, Motorola Backflip. It ran 1.5 and Moto later released update to 2.1 (for U.S. customer's only). I own the phone even today, and it runs Gingerbread (2.3.7 precisely), far beyond what Moto assumed. So no worries for the update, I love the phone right now.
PS: At least it makes me stand apart from every other guy carrying either a Samsung or a Sony Ericsson in the name of Android.

vygokhale, 12 Mar 2012is Motorola DEFY+ is ICS 4.0 upgradable?Motorola do not plan to offer ICS for the Defy+.
There will eventually be ICS custom ROMs available but apparently the GPU is a bit border line.
IMO it would be good for Google to stop making successful Android versions heavier and heavier.
this mobile has good options , but its too small to handle.....i request you people dont get impression of this mobile by looking it online images ....Coz it is zoomed and shown to you ....i request everyone to visit store and feel by holding it....if you are satisfied with the Size of phone you can purchase it......

I like the Defy+ much. But with 7K more i can get an Atrix 2. can anyone tell me if Atrix 2 is better for the money?
I dont need the dual core, but i definitely need the larger screen.

If so,can u please post the download link???.....and, Is it true that we can unroot the phone after rooting it so that we can get back the warranty???
maestrocerebro, 11 Mar 2012Are there any customs ROMs for DEFY+ (not defy)????....defy has got a lot of support but i can... moreThere are some about. CyanogenMod has a Defy+ version but like may Defy+ custom ROMs it assumes that the battery is the same size as the Defy and so your battery never fully recharges.
That may be fixed in a nightly CyanogenMod ROM now though.
MS2Ginger 2.1 apparently does not have the battery problem.
Prabhath, 09 Mar 2012i do agree with you...But the cons are BLURring out the pros (no pun intended)..camera is an i... moreThe importance of the camera and the camera quality is down to the individual buyer's requirements.
If a good camera was important for me then I would not have purchased this phone.
I think the best camera for a 3.7 Android phone was on the 8mpix Xperia Neo (not the Neo V). I don't think anyone sells them anymore but you may find one.
Here is a photo comparison from this site's comparison tool:
Change the drop down to scale all the shots to 8mpix and the difference is huge of course.
