daniel baires, 03 Mar 2011Nice device, but is there any way to turn off the radio other than taking out the headphones?You can also press "menu" and then "exit".
hello all, is there now a solution to the earpiece failure problem of certain Defy's? thanks
dont buy from http://mobileshop.co.in/
the prices are fake and the site is fake too.
daniel baires, 03 Mar 2011Nice device, but is there any way to turn off the radio other than taking out the headphones?yes, just tap on headphone icon present in between '-' and '+' icon at the bottom in radio screen.
Yes, to switch off the radio just tap on headphone icon placed in between '-' and '+' sign, present at the bottom of the radio screen.
For all u candy @s*s who hav galaxy s n r talkin trash bout defy go do sum research cuz defy is "BAAP" of sgs in every aspect apart 4m screen.Defy processor is same of milestone2 bt undrclokd dnt kno y bt Ive read it on some site dat moto has some strategy behind this. And dis is nt enough defy processor cn b overclokd to 1.3 ghz and have TIOMAP 3630 chipset insted of 3610 and PowerVr SGX530 gpu(confirmed myself on 3 diff sites). And defy is extremely moddable phone n der r numerous roms for defy changing its appearence from custom froyo to wp7! And those who r talkin dat defy cant play or record 720p WIDEN UR EYES N OPEN UR MOUTH coz defy can do dat too. its via hack bt still it can do dat. N now for flash10.1 defy will have it when updated or if u have little patience like me den install a mod rom froyo. Now if im nt wrong den i hav proven dat defy is nt underdog to sgs. with all dat power under its hood n lifeproof(nt completely bt somewhat satisfying)+led flash+tough rugged look+few hundred buck lesser n can do almost anything den who wud buy sgs for merely .3" large super duper amoled screen n those who buy sgs wud b super duper dumb or super duper rich, after all its ur money use it wisely or throw in garbage who gives a DAMN!!
HBI, 04 Mar 2011Ok then you tell me what is the advantage of defy compare to galaxy s except defy is water res... moreand again you reply... take a dictionary and look for a definition of the word "defy"... this is not some shiny slick ultra super fast smartphone. This is THE ONLY heavy duty rugged android smartphone on the market. It can withstand heavy misuse and still work flawlessly, so it's exceptionally well built + it has by far THE BEST CELL reception of all smartphones available in the world + it's extremely compact + it can flawlessly do AT LEAST 90% of all the things Galaxy SL can. To put it simple to you: Samsung SL is something like a very fast slick new sports car (lets say Hyundai) and Motorola Defy is the best Range Rover with all extra equipment. YOU CANNOT TELL ANYONE THAT HAVING (LETS SAY) 10% WORSE ACCELERATION MAKES RANGE ROVER WORSE CAR THAN SOME SPORT HYUNDAI. I bought my Defy and I'm delighted with it. You should obviously buy Galaxy SL - so go buy it and share your experiences with Galaxy SL's users. Don't go on, let's say, Range Rovers web site and tell people thay should have bought a sports car 'cause it goes 20mph faster than Range rover - that's lame and stupid... that's trolling...
nnc, 04 Mar 2011that's trolling you're doing... you're pathetic... not only some of your "advantages"... moreOk then you tell me what is the advantage of defy compare to galaxy s except defy is water resistance and dust resistance
HBI, 04 Mar 2011You are wrong I will clear your doubt Galaxy sl has 4 gb internal memory and expandable upto ... morethat's trolling you're doing... you're pathetic... not only some of your "advantages" are plain wrong and/or flawed, but you fail to mention any of Defy's advantages... this is where Motorola Defy's users and potential customers share info... as for you being typical Samsung FANBOY - no comment... go on some Samsung's page and help people interested to buy Samsung products instead of trolling around.
Does someone else has issues with connecting to a WPA2-AES encrypted entwork with the SSID broadcast disabled? The phone that I tested was connecting okay for the first time, but after it comes back from sleep is not connecting anymore?!? Other then that, the phone is very ... fluid.
Anshul, 03 Mar 2011Indian galaxy sl,(which you are referring to) has just 4GB memory not 16 GB. AS for battery It... moreYou are wrong I will clear your doubt
Galaxy sl has 4 gb internal memory and expandable upto 32 gb but defy has 2 gb internal memory expandable upto 16 gb only.it support full 10.1 flash but defy not galaxy sl has 1 ghz a8 processer but.defy has only 800mhz processer. Galaxy sl has super cleare lcd display but defy has only normal tft screen,galaxy sl has dedicated graphical,processer but in defy not officialy mentioned,galaxy sl capable to play all format as galaxy s play at 720p and also 720p video recording but defy does not play or recored 720p and does not offer rich formate support as galaxy sl and galaxy s.supprt,galaxy sl also have secondary camera and android 2.2 upgradable to 2.3 but defy has 2.1 upgrading in 2nd quater of the year and not upgrading to 2.3, galaxy sl has 5.1surrounding sound,pinch in zoom dedicated video and audio player and touch wizard 3.0 (touchwiz3.0 is year ago with motoblur and best customizable home replacement stand no. one with htc sence)also motoblur not come with defy in india,galaxy sl support hug audio format sa galaxy s or galaxy 3 support but defy supported only few and galaxy sl has samsung app store actually galaxy sl 9003 is a galaxy s with 4gb internal memory,superclear lcd instead of super amoled as we add external memory card upto 32 gb in sl so lower intenal memory in sl with respect to galaxy s not matter and super lcd is best class in lcd and it has brighter than super amoled but deep black level of super lcd slighty lower than su-amoled so both factor compensate each other.third factor of su-amoled to consumed less power than super clear lcd is compensate by fact that galaxy sl has 1650mAh battery than galaxy s 1500mAh battery so we can assumed galxy sl as galaxy s if above fact consider and you know galaxy s vs defy which is better and hence galaxy sl is better in every aspect as it has same specification as galaxy s. only in some area galaxy sl differ with galaxy s explained above not a big thing and essential for price cut down in india galaxy sl available for Rs.19000 and in http://mobileshop.co.in/cart.php?addid=1670 price is Rs.15000 (includingVAT,other taxesand shipping charge) cheaper than defy if buy from online above website or cost Rs.500-1000 if buy from local.
Tui, 02 Mar 2011Does it have front camera? no it does not have a front facing camera
Nice device, but is there any way to turn off the radio other than taking out the headphones?
Nice spec, for mid-end usage....i hope consumer know what are they buying before they buy....for me this is good enough, no need hi-end phone...

Don't / can't understand why people keep complaining about the headphone jack. I have been using mine since late Dec and not a single issue at all.

IbanezRG, 02 Mar 2011Galaxy SL has:
- a better screen @ SuperClear LCD.. it is comparable to S-AMOLED (vs old TFT ... moreyes, Galaxy SL has (shortly):
- better and larger screen,
- more RAM,
- better video recording resolution,
- newer Android out of the box (but Defy will also get 2.2 soon),
- much better talk time ('cause it has slightly larger battery + much weaker reception than Defy),
- more on-device storage,
- front facing camera,
- flash (defy will get it with 2.2 software update soon).
but Defy has (shortly):
- exclusivity of being a smartphone with best reception EVER (and at least several times better than Galaxy SL)- that is why Defy has less talk and standby time,
- better durability (but, Defy's headphone jack can cause earpeace failing for european and asian users- not problem for me as I NEVER use headphones with my phone- only dedicated mp3 player),
- much more compact dimensions etc.
Everybody should choose according to their requirements.

- a better screen @ SuperClear LCD.. it is comparable to S-AMOLED (vs old TFT on DEFY)
- a larger screen @4" (vs 3.7" in Defy)
- more usable RAM @ 478MB (vs only 350mb in DEFY)
- HD Video Recording at 720p (vs only VGA in DEFY)
- Android 2.2 Froyo OS right out of box (vs 2.1 in DEFY)
- 1Ghz A8 Cortex Processor (vs 800Mhz in DEFY)
- PowerVR SGX530 GPU, TI OMAP 3630 chipset (vs older and slower GPU and 3610 chipset on DEFY)
- TouchWiz 3.0 UI (vs no MOTOBLUR in Indian DEFYs)
- 15 hours talktime battery (vs 6 hour talk time on DEFY)
- Front facing camera (vs no front camera on DEFY)
- 16GB internal storage (vs 2GB on DEFY)
- Browser w/ Flash Support (no flash support on DEFY)
Does there need to be more proof? The Galaxy SL is clearly a much better phone than DEFY! Who cares if it is waterproof? Why do you want to expose your phone to water and use it underwater anyway?
