Had a Defy for a week, having swapped from an iPhone4 due to it being ruggedised. Amazed to have chosen a Motorola but very impressed on the whole although have not tried the camera yet, just internet and social networking and I must say that with heavy internet use it needs recharging after about 5-6 hours!
My question is..... I am new to smartphones and to the Android OS (2.1). I need help in getting used to its features. Without a detailed guide I think I will struggle to benefit from this phone's rich feature list and I really want to as I am starting to feel left behind by technology. Can anyone offer suggestions please?
PS: also, I did try an HTC HD running Android which also allowed text input via the virtual number keypad with predictive text, like on old-fashioned phones. Can I do this with the Defy and how? If not, is there an Android App that does this?

After the 2.2 upgrade, apps can be stored on SD card.

i have been using a htc desire for sometimes. i have had a look at the defy and like it very much considering that i have a 19 months son who finds his way around my phone every now and then. i am considering to change to this phone. one question that i would like to get clarified is, what is the exact memory available for downloading apps, as on my desire i keep running out of memory and having to uinstall apps. i know it says 2gb internal which seems very good to me but then in gsm arena review one of the negative points is "limited apps storage". can somebody using the phone please clarify what the exact space available is??

[deleted post]In HK the phone is selling for around US$420 without contract and unlock. First pre-order customers will also get the H690 Bluetooth handset for free, and one large electronic PHONE chain store replaces the 2GB (which comes with the phone) with an 8GB card.

I really hope that the Defy 2 will have an 8 GB of internal storage, like my Omnia HD. :D

Highly Recommended phone!
Bought this phone around a week ago, and not found one dislike about it yet.
Screen is responsive and accurate, with menus and animations fast and also responsive. Not seen one crash or glitch with many applications open. The phone feels like it can do so much more!
Android runs perfectly, with a seamless integration with Facebook.
Highly customizable screens, icon formations etc.
With high internet use, general SMS and calls, recharging every 2 days.
SWYPE is fantastic, highly accurate even when texting after many pints of high abv ale!
I can't believe the makers of this phone were the same ones responsible for the V3!
Mobilemaster, 02 Dec 2010Hi guys!
I have a question. The Samsung Omnia HD has a free GPS navigation or not? I posted t... moreHi Mobile master,
i doubt ur mobile has free navigation, at present free navigation is only for those who has nokia, cos nokia provides their own ovi maps navigation for free. urs being a samsung HD, it has symbian, and all u can have is google maps for some easy navigation but with data usage frm ur network, and unfortunately samsung has withdrawn any kind of support for your mobile, i think its time for a change, sell ur mobile and go for a new one,
Got one today, AMAZING PHONE, LOVED IT. The best phone i already had ever. Two years ago, if someone told me to buy a Motorola phone, i would say this person is completelly crazy. Now Motorola is almost better than samsung. Droped my I5801 for this Defy, and i really think Defy is better than galaxy S, despite the Amoled screen (but, come on, Galaxy S so expensive and not even a flash for camera, come on ?????).
Well, all that i can say is, BUY IT NOW !!! GREAT !!! THE BEST PHONE !!! Forget about Iphone, N8, Galaxy S... And for bonus, Dust, water and crash proof. Do I need to say anything else ? Idon´t think so... And for the record, i´m in Brazil !!! Claro Operator. Motorola RULEZZZZ !!! Keep doing the great job and PLEASE, UPDATE IT TO Android Ginger Bread 2.3 !!!
