The Defy+ is still a top phone for someone who wants a great web browsing experience on a small device.
- the low pixels of pentile Samsung devices are out.
- HTC One V is slow on ICS with a choppy web browser.
- Sony Sola has floating touch which slows down the browser but seems to be ok with the feature disabled. The small battery is then the issue.
- The SE Neo V is good device. The SE Neo was better but they ran out of 8mpix cameras. Does not have the rugged features of the Defy+ and face is a bit bigger. has the hug advantage of no Motoblur.
- HTC Desire S and Rhyme are quite large devices for a 3.7" screen. They also run a heavy sense overlay which is not efficient for performance a small device.
All in all the new devices are disappointing. Samsung will never produce a top web browsing experience with a small pentile AMOLED device. HTC continue with running heavy overlays and putting the heavy ICS (what were Google thinking) on a small device. Sony should have left out floating touch and provided a larger battery.
There are no new devices of similar size that are worth upgrading to.
does this phone play 720p youtube videos in stock player?

gopala, 16 May 2012i am planing to buy defy plus kindly tell the dis advantages of defy plusOnly two things:
1 Motoblur interface, apps and conditions are not that good but all can be replaced except you can't get upgrades without a Motoblur account and they take a copy of yourpersonal information and messages
2 many people have received phones with build/assembly issues
It is a great phone imo
The price is misleading, it's actually around US $300. It's too good to be true if i can get this for €170.
