whats happening to these big phone companies...
motorola made a low spec'd 4 inch phone in 2012 and a low spec'd defy (the xperia active is better than this because it has 5MP cam, 1GHz chip, and future ICS)
also samsung with their galaxy m, single core in 2012? no other designs? always the same looks as the other galaxies except the nexus

When I got my GS2 I didn't get it because it looked nice (tbh its not the nicest phone on the market to look at), I got it because it was quicker and better than all the other phones on the market at that time. These two Moto phones both can be beaten by phones for functionality with the phones being about 1/2 years old like the xperia phones. These phones should have came with high res screen, high tech cam and bigger processors to compete in this market. To look at, this phone probably is nicer than the xperia active but whats the point in having a phone that looks good but can't do half the stuff that a 1/2 year old phone could? If your an apple fan this doesn't apply to you because none of you guys see past the logo anyway.

I have the defy+ and it not exactly a huge phone even for my small hands. I guess the defy mini will be an affordable rugged phone for kids and teens.

I think if Motorola don't offer upgrades for DEFY to Gingerbread and ICS and/or unlock the bootloader, will not see many of us again. HTC and Sansung are expecting us.

1650mAh battery for 3.2 inch screen phone.

It was phone for entry level as far as I can see. I see no reason why people would compare it to a top tier device like RAZR. If it priced correctly, it will be a good deal for sure.

Well hopefully they'll have decent cameras - the 5MP on the Defy+ was an absolute disaster and not worthy of being called a camera.

Who cares! I just need a phone that can call and recieve calls. 800 Mhz is ok for a everyday phone usage.

2012 model with 800 Mhz? If more than 200 euro i bet there's hardly a market.
