My only and biggest hope is that battery of this one will last longer, the old one is hardly staying awake about 7 hours if I don't use it too much! :(

samsung xcover is in pre-production mode when gsma test it so it too soon to judge it.
i dont want to comment for active cause i'm very disapointed with my last SE android phone, SE have same problem with moto, locked bootloader.
it is really funny watching how samsung and HTC grow their famous on android land with unlocked bootloader while the strict manufactures like moto and SE still suffered financial lost.
so when SE learn this with their new bootloader policy, moto still close their eyes and ignore their customers.
locked bootloader = no buy
I dont understand,since that phone is made for hard and tough occasion and in sametime they need to difference from other 'ordinary' phone devices,
why fogod's sake not insert in this model built-in antenna???
Azzh0l3, 04 Sep 2011@zakster - don't fool yourselfwhat am i fooling myself about bro?
nowadays, video chat is a basic spec for smartphone.but i am very much disappointed to see this good phone without front facing camera.
i read that defy+ is getting 720p recording..so i believe moto did the right job by getting this.. its affordable.. life proof. and also.. why the heck do we need a dual core when a single core can take care of everything.. if you are a dual core enthusiast.. try the atrix.. its bloody cool!! i believe this is a good move cause the old defy cant record 720p videos nor watch them even after overclocking!! so whats the use.. also that red lens and green lens issue!!!... this is a more aggressive defy..a defy ready to kick anyone in its way..i like the defy more than the active(which by the way isnt worth looking into unless you are a sony fan) and the samsung xcover( which is seriously sad.. considering it failed the test which gsmarena had conducted.. sad) ultimately its defy who is now the king of the life proof phones:) and i like it!!!
AnonD-18384, 18 Aug 2011you can patch a rom to convert it's VGA base to 720p base...if interested then reply me...yeah man. . how do we do that?
I think it is a halfhearted upgrade from Motorola..
DEFY need better screen quality, i mean like IPS LCD on LG's phone or Retina display on iPhone 4..
dual-core processor like Galaxy S II..
and please fix the camera quality..the result is too noisy
no specs regarding SAR. as for Defy, the SAR was relatively high ( 1.5). also, i wanna ask if i can edit documents by that phone ? and concerning a very heavy duty usage, what is the best handset: Defy+ , Samsung Xover , sonyerecson Xperia Activ.
please i need these answers...
i need help, i look up for mobile with long life battery, and to view/edit files, with a very heavy duty features. is it the proper one to buy.. ? and please if anybody from Egypt, purchased it, tell me about it's selling points and customer services ?
I think it is a good phone, and if they don't charge it at a price much higher than the old Defy, I will certainly buy it.
