I try so many androids phones already. I know the differences of the diff. brands, now the generations Android Phones is really famous. I encourage you guys to go for Motorola Defy bec. if you are talking regarding the quality of the phone this have it all!!!

rigelstuff, 16 May 2011I'm seriously considering this and the Nokia N8 as a replacement for my Nokia E72.
N8 pros:... moreReally depends what you need...
the Android OS is on the rise where everybody talks about it with plenty of resources and new apps around to serve your needs. Meanwhile Symbian is dying as committed by the company.
A friend of mine owns an N8, and I've the Defy. The response / internet browsing speed of my Defy is about 3~5 times faster than that of N8, plus in case I run out of battery, I can replace it with another unit. (a non-original spare battery comes with the phone where I live, an extra one with the charging cradle costs around US$5)
Internal memory is fine with over 1.2G to store apps, as many so called "new" Android phones offer around 300mb. Buying external storage is quite cheap nowadays, as I can get a 16GB card for about US$25.
Rodger P, 14 May 2011The Motorola Defy is NOT waterproof, it is water resistant, while it might be good enough to d... moreThe company I work for has 40 field technicians and we decided to get these phones for them as they go to remote places. (repairs and servicing to cell phone towers) One techie lost his in a sugar cane field for 8 days. When he found it, it was caked with mud (rainy season) after washing all the mud off and charging it it was fine. He is still using it. I was impressed.
I'm seriously considering this and the Nokia N8 as a replacement for my Nokia E72.
N8 pros: multimedia capabilities (camera, TV connectivity), built-in memory, AMOLED screen;
Defy pros: ruggedness, Android OS; Android market; faster processor
Does anybody have any hands-on experience with these 2, enough to make respectable comments on their performances?
Also, this will be my first foray into a full-touchscreen phone, as I've always preferred full, hardware QWERTY keyboards. My primary use for the phone is SMS, so I need a good keyboard. Are the touchscreen keyboards OK?
