SwiftKey X is the otherness that I am trying at the moment.. I downloaded the free trial version for one month.. So far, and it's keeping up with my typing.
It just seems the the defy plus has quite a few minor bugs that although annoying, and are solved by a few Android Market alps.

I checked the task manager and typically, it seems that when the android cpu reaches around 30+ % usage, then the keyboard starts to slow a little so I close some apps that eat alot of ram (even the ones that arent running at the time, and once I get the system cpu down to around the 19% mark, the keyboard starts playing nice again. will keep an eye to see if there is a specific app eating a lot of ram.

very good phone with a shameful battery back up.
I bought just a week back and its getting drained to 10% within 24hrs and without any use at all and in 2g network. In 3G and with moderate use only 12-14hrs.
I heard of poor battery of general MOTO phones and its seems very true.

try this keyboard , search it on Android Market, its free and "GO" Software is 100% legit, very professional team, so search on Google Market for " GO Keyboard ". Has many themes and customizations.

Keyboad lag is beyond a joke so I have had to turn off the vibration for the keyboard when typing. Not so bad then because it is less distracting when the letters take a second or so to catch up if you type fast.
Anyone experience the keyboard lag when typing fast and have you found a work around for it?

Please note that the Motorila Defy is not listed as shock proof. Only listed as water resistant and dust proof so do not assume that you can go swimming with it or think you can drop it as many times as you like without damaging it.
If it survives a drop or two then count yourself lucky that the thing has not broken yet.
The JCB edition does come with a protective case, abit like one of those silicone ones although this one is made from a special material that hardens up on impact which will make this thing shock proof when it's on.
I have briefly tested this thing under a running tap for about 10 seconds and it still works with no issues, so at least the claim that it is water risistant seems to hold true.
There are still a few annoying issues like flash player skipping on a few sites like iplayer (which did'nt happen with some of my other phones).
The backlight won't dim down when the phone goes into darkeness again. This is not a hardware issue but a software one as Lux Autobrightness from tge marketplace cured this problem.
The issue of flashplayer still being 10.2 even after my update still remains, so I have to manualy update after each time the phone reboots.
Keyboard lags at intevals when typing on the web but is fine durring texts, etc.
Ok, so I checked Motorola's website and contrary to the person at Motorola telling me that 2.3.4 was the latest update, I have updated to 2.3.5 via Motorola's website.
(as I had no luck with the OTA).
So it would seem that 2.3.6. is not available in the UK...yet.
I have phoned Motorola in the UK and they told me that my 2.3.4. update is the latest one yet some of you have posted that you have 2.3.6.
Is anyone living in the UK got this update?

of course there is a delete button when entering phone numbers in the dialer.
On a side note I find that although there are a few annoying bugs (most of which have workarounds). the louspeaker is excellent, loud and very crisp. Calling on this mobile is a real pleasure.
Hi! I'm 13 and i have this phone. i love it! processing speed is great and its truly rugged... i dropped it in water, sand... and of course on concrete multiple times :D. if you want to buy it, buy it, because it is great
Zh, 10 Jan 2012Hey... how did you manage to get the OTA firmware upgrade... i tried 3 times before i gave up.... moreOTA upgrade services have been discontinued from Motorola in India. So, you need to visit nearest Motorola Authorized Service Centre to get the same upgraded from Android OS 2.3.4 to 2.3.6 version.
You may find the complete list of service centers by clicking http://www.motorola.com/staticfiles/Support/IN-EN/Static_Files/Indian-Service-Centers.pdf

How is it possible that people have the 2.3.6 update? I have been trying to update via OTA from 2.3.4 and the phone is telling me that it already has the latest software update? !
Also a word of advice, for those of you with the JCB EDITION, *DO NOT* factory reset without backing up the JCB app as a factory reset will wipe it from the phone.
There is a really usefull file manager app called andro zip on the market place which will let you back up apps.
