Unfortunately Motorola has crippled the Defy + by not updating it to Jelly Bean. However, if you care to take time and work on it, it's possible to flash it to Jelly Bean. And the Defy + becomes a pleasure to use with none of that Motorblur bloatware. Enjoy!
Ramesh, 28 Sep 2013Can some one please post the battery model number for Motorola defy + The battery is a HXF5, model:L-L-L DC110920
Odd Model number I know...
I love this phone, it is thousand times better than the samsung galaxy fame !!!!!! But i see that lots of people don't know how to use it :-(
This device looks old and locked with its android 2.3.6 and motoblur (lots of apps and games don't work on it), but i assure you, if you know how to root it and to install a custom recovery on it (ex : CWM), you will be able to flash it with one of the latest custom firmwares to unlock everything on this phone, and even boosting its capacities:
Better cpu work, good ram managing, extra battery life and better photos quality.
For those who understood me, try the "Xperia D 4.2" custom rom after rooting it and you will see what i am talking about ;-)
The best and most enjoyable low-cost smartphone I have ever had ^_^
gorilla glass was worst it cant survive a 3 foot fall on my defy plus and camara is blurry
How do I root my phone,,,,,, it's unlocked whenever I root it would it affect the unlock,, and can I go back to gingerbread 2.3.6 if I don't like it,,, why can't I get fm radio to play threw the speakers

That means that you can provide WI-FI conection to your laptop, tablet or smartphone, with a data plan off course.
I'm looking to purchase this phone does it tethered to a laptop cause I would want wifi tethered to my laptop from phone using my data plan .and is there a new software to update the OS
im using motorola mb526 still last 6months bt im having a problem with 2g signal so give me info plz
Now I have been using this phone for 8 months. If u have any problem with camera and u think the captured photos are blurry, try using "Cymera" instead of original software.
ammy, 15 Jul 2013is there any other way to update to ics/jb without freezing. I'm stuck to 2.3.4 Pls...go to xda-developers.com
it's my first phone and has no posibility to install apps via pc into it...strange fact!!!
My review about this phone :
1. Defy+ has very attractive look , feels very stronger. its design and body is just awesome. gorilla glass provides all protection from scratch and fall down. it also easily fits into the pockets. very nice handset.
2. from hardware perspective it has 512 MB ram which is enough to perform different tasks. Camera is worst but the flash light is so strong that you have absolutely no need of buying torch !
3. the default OS is good but if you want the best from this phone then root it and get custom rom. I am using Mokee OS custom rom which is faster and provides best ui and has lots of advantages over normal OS , your phone becomes fully customizable , screenshot, status bar toggles.
4.the thing that I didn't like about the phone is if we install number of apps and if they are running simultaneously then the phone starts lagging so I suggest install the apps which are really require.
Suggestions : those who r using defy , just don't think and root it and start using custom rom , it has lots of advantage over motoblur.
