miffedbydefy, 12 Jun 2012I have this phone for nearly 8 months now and it has been a nightmarish experience. Clearly my... moreI had the exact same problems you mentioned, Defy sucks in its stock form. So just root your phone install CM7 or CM9 roms from XDA forums and change your Vsel settings. The phone will become ultra slick and you will never regret buying it.
The worst ever customer service by any company i have ever experienced or heard of... Motorola India.
I got a brand new Motorola defy plus on 25th April. After 10 days, i started getting hell lot of issues. Then on 19th may i gave it at the service center. And today, its 16th June, i am yet to receive my handset. I escalated this case to Motorola Customer care on 4th June. And since past 2 weeks, all they are telling me is We haven't got any updates from our service team. We will get back to you as soon as we get updates from them. So, please wait for 1 more week. I am not even sure if i will get my handset back.
At first place they should replace the handset as i got all these issues within 10 days. and i submitted the phone to them after 3 weeks time. But, they are saying it's not in our policy. And they are not even repairing it.
Now, i am extremely frustrated. I invested 15000 on a wrong brand. I feel cheated. If any concerned authority from Motorla sees this please help me out.
My complaint number is: 120604005591.
IMEI No: 358960040052576.
The Defy is a terrible phone out of the box. The hardware is great, but is has been poorly programed by Motorola (lagging, crashing, unresponsive, etc.). Root it, put custom ROM CyanogenMod7 on it and it's a great phone....
Freddy, 24 May 2012I have Defy, and i upgraded to 2.3.7 Very good :D I love this phonehy guys how to update 3.2.7 plz help me
I have this phone for nearly 8 months now and it has been a nightmarish experience. Clearly my first android experience has been extremely bad, all because I chose this. Basic things like picking up a call, reading messages are so painful at times that it feels like hell. the touch screen behaves as it has its own mind at times.. applications get clicked automatically, sometimes even calls also. after suffering for initial few months, I overclocked it thinking it may improve the basic performance but no help.
Lastly to end my rant- I think they made it scratch proof, shock proof et al as it is bound to get thrown, drowned and kicked a lot :). I give it to them- it is indeed shock proof.
May be I got a lemon or do any of the other owners have experienced similar things? Just felt like I needed to let out the steam.
thanks for your feedback,thinking to purchase motorola defy, know i am drop
I tried to use this phone but it´s really slow, get extremly hot sometimes and it blocks.
Grade: Not good.
I´m going back to Nokia and experience the Lumia series.
