I'm seriously considering this and the Nokia N8 as a replacement for my Nokia E72.
N8 pros: multimedia capabilities (camera, TV connectivity), built-in memory, AMOLED screen;
Defy pros: ruggedness, Android OS; Android market; faster processor
Does anybody have any hands-on experience with these 2, enough to make respectable comments on their performances?
Also, this will be my first foray into a full-touchscreen phone, as I've always preferred full, hardware QWERTY keyboards. My primary use for the phone is SMS, so I need a good keyboard. Are the touchscreen keyboards OK?
Can somebody help me decide between Defy & Ace? I've googled & found things about both bu still confused specially regarding the processors. can someone throw light on it??
The Motorola Defy is NOT waterproof, it is water resistant, while it might be good enough to drop into a small pool of water for a breif amount of time (as seen on some Youtube videos, this phone is not Waterproof and will fail if you use it under water.
as the manual states, it is water and dust resistant (a key reason I bought this over the Iphone 4, when I replaced my Iphone 3)
it is a fantastic little smartphone and a very good Iphone alternative, it does has some user issues in my case, with my non-delecate fingers I find the touch screen keyboard harder to use than the one on the Iphone 3 despite better resolution and more screen space on the Motorola Defy.
other than that, I think it should come with a 4gb memory card instead of the 2gb, but that's just me being picky.

If u are in india than never ever think to buy this mobile. Its better for u to go toward LG,Samsung,Sony etc. As I bought 3 month ago and it is my second mobile, first mobile screen stop functioning in the third day and second mobile(replaced) running quit fine. I think so the there is lot of differences between indian mobile and other countries mobile of same brand and lot of features example MOTOBLUR is not there in indian mobile .Before buying MOTO DEFY u should keep in mind Overheat, no sign of froyo updating for indian mobile, Gingerbread no chance etc.
