It looks like I'm very unlucky with my Defy+. I'm using it for over 2 months now and i have very little positive to report on this phone.
I'll just make a quick summary of the issues i'm experiencing (I'm running Android v2.3.6):
- My Defy+ is not recognized by Vista of XP when plugged in the computer. I can't transfer any files or music to the SD card.
- Some files on the SD are just not recognized by the phone. Some music albums seem to vanish when I search for them (on the phone).
- Music player often crashes (presumably because of these SD card issues)
- Spontaneous reboots (no falls or shocks or anything prior to these events)
- System crashes A LOT. Only removing battery will help in this case
- Gallery doens't work. Most of the time, you can take pictures but these aren't saved. More often than not, the gallery doesn't show anything. When you CAN save your pictures, they often dissapear after a while.
- Quickoffice (build-in app for office files) crashes everytime I open a Word or Excel file. Have not tried other types of files yet.
- This phone is definitely not shock proof. A fall from less than 2 feet often results in reboot or crash. (I hope it never falls in a puddle of water or something, i'm having serious doubts about water resistance)
- Back-up alarm (loud beep when it's going off for 5 minutes) doesn't work
In short: don't buy this phone.
I have this phone for a while (~6 months) and I love it! Best choice for this kind of phones. (I mean ... if you want a phone dust and water resitant)

AW, 08 May 2012Hi guys!! I am looking for 15K android phone… Is defy plus the right choice? I would say that is you need to buy 15,000 phones that you don't need to be very picky :)
Anonymous, 11 May 2012no1 should buy defy plus..it wont get update to ice cream sandwichSilly statement when manufacturers are recommending not upgrading (even when it is possible) for lower powered devices like the Neo V.
ICS will not run as fast. ICS has heavy RAM, CPU and GPU requirements and does not offer that much additional functionality.
Your poorly researched statement adds little/no value.

You can have problems with any phone-but one common cause is putting an SD card in your phone that has not been formatted. If your SD card was used in a previous phone and still contains some data codes related to that phone, then you likely will experience a variety of breakdowns with your phone. Before putting in your old Sd card, be sure to erase all old data files (other than videos or music or photos) and then try it. I've seen several phones crash right in front of me because store clerks just quickly put my old card in before I could stop them. Now, I take it out before I trade phones.
