Defy in india dont have MotoBlur which i feel is the sole reason for the awesome battery life . it last 2-3 days easily with moderate use .
Camera is a big let down , one of the worst i'd say . it takes blurry pictures . it cane be irritating at times . one paid close to 20k for the phone but still you get a below average cam :|
Also where Moto is behind other brands is their atfer sale support which aint good . Its not long when defy was launched , when their were phones with 2.3 gingerbread but god knows why Motorola launched their so called high end phone with old 2.1 eclairs OS and update to froyo is still not out in most of the country .
how about the display in outdoor?
in the middle of daylight, is the display become bad to see/read??
Gadget-Handicapped, 18 Apr 2011This phone looks like a girlyes
defy has realy nice design
why is tht the updates are specificto region..if the hardware is teh same..cant the phone be updated once a software is released ??? jsu a doubt..i am new to this
@Anonymous: Cheers :)
@Rishirich: Dunno about rooting Defy (I opted to keep my warranty for the time being), but it's obviously doable as not only there is 2.3.3 unofficial ROM now - there is latest CyanogenMod 7 port for Motorola Defy on xda-developers forum: http://forum.xda-developers.co...hp?t=1033654 And official 2.3 upgrade not being confirmed yet doesn't mean it's not gonna happen.
@mobile_lover: as for latin america 2.2 is released in time and is "Upgrade to Android 2.2 now rolling out in phases." so it's probably local operators that slow that process and not Motorola. As for Asia-Pacific, Europe etc. there are no signs of any possible delay :) and if you want to check for yourself: http://goo.gl/oNe3
I bought my Defy in Singapore. My phone did not come with a process to register with Motorblur. I also do not have voice text input in my keyboard. How do I get these features?

Can we root/ install custom ROM's? I have read that they have locked bootloaders and rooting it will brick the phone.
It's important cause the phone won't receive 2.3 update.

hmmm... touch lag... well, if you buy Defy with motoblur it is very likely that you'll sometimes experience slight lag (fractions of a second) when sliding between home-screens or navigating main menu - however, it's confirmed to be 100% motoblur launcher related so ANY popular alternative free launcher from android market will work as smooth as silk (at least it worked for me) - but I returned to motoblur's launcher as I don't find it to be that disturbing (I was Nokia user so take this with a grain of salt:)... finally, froyo upgrade is just around the corner and it's extremely likely that this minor issue will be completely solved with it.
I hope this will be helpful to you :)
Bluetooth problem solved!
The issue is after initiating file transfer, the dialog is not shown and found under home screen menu key press notifications, there you need to open it and 'Accept'.

If you're looking for a rugged android smartphone than you have absolutely no choice as Defy is the only one on the market. If you don't care much for quality materials or ruggedness you could go for Samsung Galaxy S i9000 (upgradeable to android 2.3 but very glossy, easily scratched and cheep plastic casing) which is a bit more expensive or you could go for SE Xperia X10 (will get android 2.3 but X10 has less RAM than Defy and may not be sufficient even if you're not a power user). If dimensions are a factor - Defy again wins hands down as it's extremely compact considering 3.7'' screen. It all depends on what you're looking for...
