Dear Defy users,
Does Defy has 'Speech to Text' feature? Does any one use it while typing the SMS?
In youtube it does show that there is a 'speaker' icon on keyboard while typing SMS but i do not find it in Display models of Defy in Mumbai.
Even the User Manual available on Motorola/in website shows Speech to Text facility.
Can any Defy user share his/her experience?

Old Nokia phones had amazing reception and I still use E50 as my 2 phone on another operator - just because of that quality reception. But those phones are ancient history and long discontinued now. Too bad new Nokia phones aren't even half as good when it comes to that. Still n95 shouldn't have better signal than Defy - I had n95 for a long time and Defy seems to hold signal a lot better for me - maybe it has something to do with towers, my network configuration or who knows what... For example in my basement my old n95 used have 2-3 stripes remaining and Defy on the same network looses only one!!! Neither ever doped a call thou :D:D:D

Motorola DEFY is an awesome phone, my step-dad is absolutely stoked about his, and he's had no dramas with it. I own a desire HD, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a phone that'll do just about anything you want. I rooted mine (now I have root access to the phone's file system) and put an awesome version of Android on it called "Leedroid 2.2.1" That overclocks the cpu a little (correct me if I'm wrong) to 1086mhz and somehow improves the battery by %20 and does a heap of other things. Google leedroid to find out.. anyway, its awesome as. Only big downside I have is that mine doesn't operate on Telstra's next g network...

And i am not attackig motorola,i really dont care of companies, i just know that i love my little android phone!!! that look's like a samsung(shinny.. ok not so much...) and unlocks like an iphone ;)

Desire HD also has much worse battery duration, it's definitely not as compact as Defy and has pretty bad signal reception.
Nexus S is currently technologically speaking the most advanced Android smartphone available and also you can buy about 2 Defy's for 1 Nexus S. It will also be better supported and receive more software upgrades than any other Android smartphone (and faster than any other 'cause it's Google's official phone) Thou if you're looking for ruggedness you still should seriously consider buying Defy (Defy's signal reception is better than Nexus S's).
i am using it and dude it rocks trust me i bought it 4 days ago and love it .through sip droid i can make sip calls works awesome.software market is also awesome no hang ups.
2.2 froyo will be coming mid july for this handsetand ppl nothings perfect.
