Rupesh, 20 Feb 2011I bought the DEFY 2 weeks ago. After one week the phone started hanging very often. Even dur... moreI had the exact same experience. The battery life on DEFY is very poor. If you heavily use the phone, it will drain within 4 to 5 hours!! Even the screen is too dull, i think becoz it is only 256k color, and not 16M. The call quality is also very poor. Indian DEFYs have no MOTOBLUR which makes a big difference later when you get more and more contacts on your phone. Compared to my father's Samsung Galaxy 3 this phone is a big waste. I am really upset I bought this phone, I should have gone for Samsung instead. Also, please be advised it is almost impossible to find spare parts for Motorola phones in India. They are either too expensive, or not in stock always.

I bought the DEFY 2 weeks ago. After one week the phone started hanging very often. Even during the 1 week I was not impressed with the phone, especially since the phone lacks MOTOBLUR in India. The battery life was very low, I got only 8-10 hours with one charge and medium usage. Many games lagged, and some would not even install due to some conflict. Camera quality was worse than my old 2MP Nokia phone camera. The only thing nice about this phone is that it is water-proof, and the screen is nice (only indoors.. u cannot see anything if there is sunlight).
I SOLD my DEFY yesterday on eBay and bought a Samsung Galaxy Ace today.
hey... can someone know what app can I download to have Yahoo messenger on my DEFY?

100 Moto, 17 Feb 2011Motorola makes low quality phone? If so, name me just one phone from Samsung which offers the... moreGMSarena's own tests show that Samsung call quality is far superior to Motorola. While Samsung has been known through history to produce good quality and reasonable priced phones, Motorola has always had the image of low quality.
this is an excellent phone, however, it is kind of not that good looking, but really love the water proof and stuff like that, but i didnt like the storage inside, came with a 2gb microsd, that was bad, should have been a 8gb, and also, the facebook integration isnt bad, but its very limited, and still though by including the status folder on home screen, it takes a small space and you can see the recent status update of your friends!,
[deleted post]Motorola makes low quality phone? If so, name me just one phone from Samsung which offers the best noise reduction / cancellation quality like Crystal Talk for Motorola? A phone is NOT a phone if it can't even deliver clear conversation.
Now the almighty brand is pretty much gone but I can't believe the used to be harmony Korean brand start to have fans attacking other brands, just like what the almighty brand did.
I don't understand why some of you complain about the phone's stability and speed. My phone has an uptime of over 230 hours, and I never encountered a crash of an app (and I do have a lot installed), or seen it lag or respond slowly to commands. Using stock Eclair 2.1 update 1, and Moto Blur 2.34. Battery lasts through a day, with around 30% before charging at night, with heavy usage (3G on, WiFi on for 2 maybe 3 hours, aprox. 1 hour of voice calls, 1 hour of web browsing, mail and sms sending/receiving, a few pictures taken, 30 minutes of music, using Maps and GPS for around 20 minutes, and some Angry Birds, lol).
Very pleased with it, only minus is that the volume rocker button feel kinda cheap and squeaks.
Krunal, 15 Feb 2011If you want text to speech option, you have to settle for a better phone like the Galaxy Ace. Auh!! don't compare a brand like Motorola with Samsung please,Samsung is of no worth.
