Undoubtedly the best I've had in the Android era. I had it until recently in my "personal museum". It's still in service after 7 years, since I recently donated it to someone who needed it.

marko, 11 Oct 2015Can it run skype facebook and instagram?nowadays facebook messenger and skype doesn´t work after the upgrade version.
after 1 year and 3 months my battery drain even in off condition (short circuit even never use in water). it was good phone: never restart, in a place where the gsm signal is bad: none of my friends got signal (same carrier as mine), defy still manage have 4 bar of edge. btw I recommend slimkat 4.4 to anyone still used this art of engineering
I bought my Defy Plus in 2011 and its still working BUT...
1. Replaced the screen after a year and a half because of pixel burn-in.
2. Larger pixel burn-in on the second screen in less than a year.
3. Rubber gasket covers for micro USB port loosened after 1.5 years.
4. Still experiencing reboots since day one.
Worst Android phone I ever bought.
motorola defy plus, 17 Aug 2015me too ...!!! hate this reboot problem. I fixed it changing the cellphone data mode.
U have to restart the phone and press "Vol -" when the LED light.
Then u have to search for something that say "on demand" (My Defy+ is rooted, I dont remember what is write on original boot menu. For me it is "Scaling"). U just have to change this parameter. Im using "conservative" mode, for example. And dont worry about this changing. If u still having problems, just go back to old configuration.
With the glowing reviews, it appears I drew the short straw and ended up with one of these Defy+'s from a series of faulty batches and was experiencing constant and relentless reboots, (even while freshly factory reset and a brand new replacement sim) with rather hell raising mid call reboots. Subsequent warranty replacements also eventually failed, but in completely different ways. I have to admit, I'm very glad to have gotten rid of mine 2 years ago, where in confession, I reached the end of my tether, folded it up (it folds quite easily) and literally threw it in the bin. The Sony Xperia line so far (Acro S and the Z2) in comparison have been a lot more stable for me.
Bought in 2011. Still very happy with its functioning. looks like it ll b god to use for another 4 years..
Good phone with the drawbacks of 512 MB RAM and Android 2.3.6 that Motorola is not willing to upgrade.
However, you can install CyanogenMod 9 (Android 4.0.4) very easily and it works even better, with a lot more setup opportunities (e.g. vibrate when your call is answered, vibrate in 45th seconds of call etc.).
(Maybe even newer versions of CM, even v11 that equals Android 4.4 but I use this one in the moment - however, these ugrades should be done by the manufacturer not by zealous fans.)
So in my opinion it is a very good phone with some handicaps coming from its age.
