Don't update system apps like facebook, maps and twitter first.... from manage apps setting, clean all the cache files more than 1mb and select uinstall updates for all the system apps excluding play store app and google voice app... Now restart your mobile, I have gained few mb during restarts after major install or uninstall.

Now install android assistant or app2sd from play store... it allows to install apps on the sdcard or we can move some apps after installing them, but not all apps are movable to sdcard.

But majority of best apps like opera and dolphin browsers, temple run, angry birds, raging thunder (all these when moved to sdcard use only less than 1mb of internal memory, otherwise which would cost nearly 30mb each) and many more apps are movable to the sdcard. Install all the 3rd party apps from play store and move them to sdcard. Restart the mobile.

Now once you have installed all your favourite 3rd party apps from play store, you would still have 30~40 mb, you can now update the google maps first, but clean all the cache files associated with the maps from manage apps setting after updating it. Don't save offline maps it uses alot of internal memory. Let's hope next maps update allows us to save offline maps in sdcard. My maps cost me around 11mb and it's version 6.11.1.

Now 25mb or less will be just enough for the facebook update. Restart & you would still have 5-10mb after this.

I don't use either the twitter or facebook apps, both consume a lot of internal memory and are not movable to the sdcard. Rather I bookmark them in my opera mobile browser and access facebook, google reader, outlook and plenary of other websites from the opera browser.


The flash support is splendid in the mobile. I use ebuddy for the chats. So my twitter and facebook apps cost around 6mb for me. I still have 25mb of free storage by denying updates for facebook & twitter and not using similar system apps. So now I have 25 mb for offline maps or others.

:D :p

> In reply to Venkat Mc @ 2012-09-10 22:50 from 2SMC - click to readFront speaker is not resistant on water flow (like water from pipe), but when you toss it in a non-salt water, pick it out, you can freely answer the call and hear another person as well as before "taking a bath".

You asked for the update, as far as I know, XT320/XT321 has a locked 7 firmware which doesn't allow any software updates and even downgrades. It would be great if that change, especcialy CPU clock (which is decreased from 800MHz stock value to 600MHz because Motorola engineers are stupid)....


Question: How did you put so many apps on your Motorola? With only 165MB internal app memory, I can install only few apps (stock FB app takes unbelievable 25MB!). I have CPU Notify (22.83kB), BatteryLife (78.64kB), WidgetRAM (61.39kB), Download All Files (437.75kB), Holo Launcher (992.66kB), Advanced Task Killer (97.44kB) and Equalizer (16.39kB). With all that dowloaded apps (and gigantic updates for FB and GoogleMaps) I have around 33MB free memory for additional apps. How stupid is that!

Used Call forwarding for all my 3 sim cards... Works fine even when other sim card is switched off...

Used app backup feature and recursively moved 700mb of rich android app setup files to my MicroSD card...

My apps:

Android Assistant (Aaron)
TaskXP (Loong)
Advanced Task manager (Infolite LLC)
CURVEFISH's Widgets
Go power master
Ice Galaxy (Maxelus.net)
Network Monitor Mini (KF S/w house)
Startup Manager (Imoblife)
Battery Info (Mathias Mewes)
Traffic logger (ixQsware)

MX Player
Zoner Antivirus And AVG Antivirus
Dialer One(Yermek Zhumagulov)
Opera Mobile
Ebuddy
Cricket T20 Fever 3D (INDIAGAMES)

* Battery lasts for a day after 5-6hrs of data traffic over 2G, 1-2 hrs of gaming and 1 hr of SMS and others.
(Without Live wallpapers and Killing Background apps frequently )

The speaker adjacent to the front facing camera is not resistant to water... also the rear speaker volume gets lowered after 10sec water wash...Anyhow The volume restores to normal after 1-2 hrs of Switch OFF mode.

Will there be any update for Defy MINI from Motorola (like improving the battery performance, UI) ?

> In reply to [deleted post]Sooooooooooooo NOT TRUE. My friend had Xperia Active and one day he accidently droped his phone into non-salt lake, phone sunk on depth of few centimeters. Screen broken, MBO fried because of water breach, in other word TOTALED! He repaired it but the phone is chrashing and restarting for no reason even today.

Now he has XT320, just like me and he thrown it in water on purpose (the phone flied few meters and fall in much deeper water). He dived it out, cleaned it, no problem.

> In reply to sree @ 2012-09-03 17:34 from 7j$q - click to readFirst things first, your operator must support video-call feature. Call direction is set by default on Voice calls only, you can also set "Ask for each call" and every time when you'll want to make a call, phone will ask you the type of call, internet call (video), or phone call (voice). You can set this in Menu > Settings > Call Settings > Call feature settings > Use Internet calling > (set "Ask for each call").

Hi All,

I have bought this phone 1 month back and I am just loving its features. Guys go for it...You won't get a phone better than this in this price segment. Some best features I like is :

i) Dual SIM (of course)
ii) Faster Speed than other phones in this segment
iii) Wifi Hotspot feature
iv) Can run Temple Run :)
v) 3G
vi) Dual Camera (Video calling works just fine). You won't get a branded dual sim phone below 18k INR except this.


Some Negatives :
i) Call log History was slow. But I installed exDialer and it is too fast now
ii) Camera is not that good. But you can go for it if you have a good digital aur SLR camera as that will do the work for you


Some Apps I installed to make it look and work cool :
i) GO Launcher EX
ii) exDialer
iii) GO Keyboard
iv) MX Player
v) Opera Mini
vi) Skype
vii) Temple Run
