I just bought this phone. In the main screen where memory card sign is shown nearby the battery sign, the exclamatory mark appears. I doubt that it has some defect in memory card slot. Do I need to worry? What does it mean?
Manish J, 27 Jan 2012halo guys,
i want to buy defy + but i wanted to ask you about its main drawbacks?please tell ... moreGo back a couple of pages to see a review I did.
I really love the phone but as my review says by particular handset had some build issues that were a bit annoying.
Software wise Motoblur is not for everyone but I just decided never to use it :)
Motoblur contacts are really badly structured and I will probably need to re-enter about half the contacts I converted so that they are logically usable. There are a bunch of illogical poorly designed interface features but all of them seem replaceable with 3rd party solutions (which also look much better than the Motorola stuff).
I don't regret buying my Defy+ but it is not without issues. I would say it is the best 3.7" device on the market atm.

KayG, 26 Jan 2012I've just bought one but I'm struggling with getting the MMS and internet settings, how do I g... moreInternet settings should be automatically found durring settup. I have a vodafone sim and also a 3 sim which the phone had no problem getting.
You need to make sure the settinfs are enabled. (settings-wireless& networks-mobile networks-access point names) make sure the relevent one is ticked.
Good solid phone. It's loud, it has great reception and it survives. I had it and fell in love with it, until I sold it to my cousin who is in extreme sports and bought the GN.
For its price it's fantastic!

I voted 10 for Design, Features, Performance
Amazon mp3 player from the android market is also a good alternative to the standard music player. Think of it as Android's poor man's version of itunes.
Default browser is Ok. Slower at loading pages than Dolphin browser. The fastest seems to be Opera. However, when scrolling through text boxes, the default browser seems to be the only one that can perform this task. Otherwise overall, the Opera browser for this phone seems to be the most reliable.
So in overview, apps that I recommend you install for this phone would be:
1) Lux Auto Brightness for the auto brightness fix.
2) Swiftkey X if you like vibration while typing (stock keyboard vibration lags alittle when using desktop settings when browsing).
3) Anyone with the flashplayer 10.2 issue. Manually search flashplayer in. the android market then update. Back the update using Androzip from the market then just reupdate everytime you reboot the phone.

I use the Swype keyboard with no haptic feedback. Haptic feedback is a newbee thing ... moreThe problem is not so much the stock keyboard keeping up with my typing, it's more the vibration that cant keep up at times. Like, you I found that keeping the vibration off was better for me because it would mess with my rythem when typing. It was more the vibration lagging than the typing itself.
Swiftkey x doesn't have that problem and the vibration can be adjusted in a way that is subtle enough to notice key presses but not over powerfull. Swype is good but I have not perfected it yet.

I use the Swype keyboard with no haptic feedback. Haptic feedback is a newbee thing and isn't useful for Swype anyway.
I find the Swype keyboard provided many times faster than previous keyboards I have used.

I have not found the phone heating up on calls. I have found that if you leave the screen, GPS and WiFi on while charging then it gets warm. Not many people would leave the screen on though :)

Anonymous, 19 Jan 2012Hi. download Go Keyboard from Market , its free and got many themes. But for me even the defau... moreI did download the GO Keyboard, and although it's good like you say I found that it does not have the QWERTY setup. I Instead it has the QWERTZ instead.
SwiftKey X is the otherness that I am trying at the moment.. I downloaded the free trial version for one month.. So far, and it's keeping up with my typing.
It just seems the the defy plus has quite a few minor bugs that although annoying, and are solved by a few Android Market alps.
