Its best phone in the price range of 15-20K. I challenge.
Screen(size & resolution) is very very impressive.
Touch response is awsome. It has unbeatable gerilla glass. No scratches at all.
Best for rough use. Nothing happens if it falls down. And ofcourse water resistant.
Battery is good if you do not keep office mails active.
soft buttons (4 buttons down the screen) are very useful compared to other phones.
Fonts are so cute, decent. (Samsung smart phone fonts are not good).
Reason for non-popularity of this phone is : no advertising. Thats it.
Few people are saying its sluggish. Thats not correct. If you keep other programs open and make many features active, defnitely, any phone of the same configuration would be sluggish.
Similarly battery backup. If you keep features (like wifi, bluetooth) active, it will eat away the battery charge. Its applicable to any mobile.

ppero196 , 08 Jul 2012Root it, install CM9 (ICS) and you have fastest phone everPlease help me out that how to install CM9 in defy and from which foroum you have downloaded the ROM ?
I have owned the Defy for 1.5 years and it is a great phone. I get slightly better reception than most of my friends. Battery life is average with other phones. I talk for about 60 mins a day(not a big talker) and playing games/surfing the web for a few hours and it will last about 2 days with that type usage. It has been fast enough to run most apps and games without issue(OEM Android) I installed Cyanogen Mod on it after two months and that makes the phone feel like new. CM7 gives me about 10% more battery even whth it overclocked to 1Ghz.
I taken this mobile just 1week back. It's good looking & more built in apps. But the smart phone is too slow. even you can't respond the incoming call while listening songs or checking mails. It's too slow even after installing android booster app. And headphones also not good at all. Better don't go for this.
Its a good phone as per the hardware specification and looks.
Sound quality is good.
Browser supports flash page also.
For camera quality i give 3/5.
Over phone i give 4.5/5 in the range of 15k...
Have a nice day.:)

I have had my Motorola Defy for the past 8 months. I have found the phone to be easy to use, fast to send text messages,as it has a on-screen QWERTY keyboard. It does go very slow occasionally, but if it slows down too much, I just shut it down and reboot it, just like a computer. I have found, as of yesterday however, then when you stupidly leave it sitting on a car boot, and the car takes off, the phone bounces rather well. So well, in fact, that it has been impossible to find it ever since. It must have broken, though, as it rings a couple of times, and then beeps. Oh well, no better excuse than this to buy another Motorola Defy. This time it is the updated "mini" version. Apparently all the functions are the same. The screen is just a tad smaller.
