The thing that frustrates me about the phone the most is I travel a mountain to work each day. My 39.99 previous phone did NOT lose service on the mountain but this phone does. So if my car would break down or God forbid get into an accident I would be stuck. I called and told them my concern and the response was it's the technology in the phone and nothing they could do. :(

I have an defy xt 556 phone on one occasion the phone heated up so much that you could hardly hold it in your hands. Took it back to supplier who sent it away for repair and checking. On returned it last about 1.5 hrs and it did the same thing again returned it to supplier and asked for new phone but no they are sending it back for repairs. To me this is totally unsatisfactory as I have lost faith in the phone what would happen if it heated up while sitting on paper and I was away.Ask yourself.

i have had the phone since the end of summer 2012, over all i like the phone but there is a few things i dont like about it, the main screen that first comes up to unlock the phone has the volume in the upper right corner, if you dont pay attention you can mute the ringer, i do this often and get many missed calls " this gets my boss alittle upset" . another thind is the internal memory isnt alot, although you can save apps to an micro sd card not all apps can be saved to the card, internal memory fills up quick, over all im happy with the phone but than again this is my first ever smart phone so im still learning

I havent gotten more than 2 bars since i got it. Straight talk customer support is worse than any thing i have seen. i clocked in 49 minutes between waiting and not getting my answer answered:( ***buyer's beware! Stay away from straight talk **** ×_×

I really love my defy. I had a iphone 3gs and this phone really outshines it. Seems to run smoother and faster than the 3gs did. Really loving the phone

Hello Everyone, here's a quick review.
a lot of people have said a lot of things about this phone.some of them are true but most of them are not.

The battery life, the most important thing, is very decent.I was able to get more than a day and a half after listening to music for about 3 hrs, playing games for about an hour, using network data and also connecting to wifi for quite a long time.

its water resistant but after you drop it in water, you will have to take the back cover off and wipe off any drops of water (if u find any).the speaker will sound bad after you drop it into water but it will be okay soon.

Screen has very good resolution, you will notice that when you are playing games.I have used a razr XT910 earlier but even then, I do not have anything to complain about Defy's display.

The hardware; it has got something close to 400 mb that's user available.that's not very good but it is very sufficient if you don't install a lot of games.also, Installing app2sd will help you save memory.
the processor, 1gHz is very good.a lot of people have complained that it lags but I've been using this one since 4 months and I didn't face any problems.I even have some good games which I can play without any problems.

The camera is not very good compared it its rivals but then, its Good enough for day time usage and the front camera is good as well.there is not physical camera button so you may not find it very convenient.

Overall, A good phone and if you think you are getting a good bargain, Do not hesitate.

Hope I was helpful.
Thanks

I was very excited to see a new Defy on the market..THIS PHONE IS HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.. the camera is worthless, memory is weak.. i understand that its a cheap phone, but it at least should be an improvement to the 2011/12 model
