Customer Reviews

They freeze ALL THE TIME.
A. Bergk
The flimsy plastic back with no rubber seal is not adequate to protect this phone from water damage.

Had the phone almost 3 months and it quit working.

When we received this phone from Amazon, my daughter was ecstatic. Phone was great, BUT she could not send or receive messages with photos. Went to T-Mobile and spent several hours with their people trying to determine the problem and fix it. The problem: the phone would not connect to a data (2G/3G) network. In the end, the T-Mobile folks declared that the phone was defective. We returned the phone through Amazon (which worked very smoothly and quickly) and purchased another DEFY through a different vendor on Amazon, and when it arrived, it had the same problem. After deciding that the likelihood of two separate vendors selling defective phones was unlikely, I did some "research" on my own and discovered that the actual problem was that the APN was not setup in the phone (actually found the settings on T-Mobile's web site). After inputting those settings, the phone works like a charm!

My only complaint about the phone is that Motorola, the vendor, or whoever is selling these phones does not include the information about setting up the APN even if that meant consumers had to contact their service providers for these settings! It was a very simple "fix" in the end, but we went through lot of unnecessary run-around to discover it.

Ok I must admit I havent owned alot of high tech phones in my time....this is my second Android. My first was the Optimus Me and its still around :-}. im not any good at specs or going into details but what I can tell should b helpful. Xcuse me if I spell wrong or miss out words, im on my Defy ;~)

Ok first off I am too impress with this phone not to leave a review. This is my second day with it and I havnt put it down yet. Its fast...real fast I love that! The design is sleek, the screen is big and its very comfortable in my hands! I love that the camera i have taken some extremly nice pics even in the pitch dark!The most important feature on a phone to me is the camera and this is a extremly good camera for $160! Even when its pitch dark I got awesome pics. The flash works! The sound from the phone is great and I havnt found anything to complain about I am really happy with this phone. a friend of mine purchased it for me from amazon and it arrived ontime as well!

I can stream movies from the free movie sites and watch online while im mobile, thats a first for me and here in the bahamas the edge sucks! So beleive me...this phone is fast!

Compared to my LG Optimus Me the only thing that would of made this phone more awesome is if i can turn my EDGE on and off as desired. This was a neat feature with my Optimus Me just having to pull down the notification bar and tapping to turn on/off the Edge. Also its not a big problem but sometimes I wish the phone had at least two hard keys like. These are minor things though and I still wouldnt trade my Defy MB525 for anything :D

UPDATE** DEC 17 2012
I forgot to mention that even thought the box and the description of this phone said that it comes with a 2g SD card...it doesn't!

When, the phone first arrived I was quite surprised by the size of the phone. The phone is really really thin and feels as if it ways no more than a lb or two. But, it's a very beautiful phone; it had not one scratch on it and came with everything that a phone out of a regular store would have. I have had this phone since January of 2011 and have not got one scratch on the screen so far. I dropped it in water on multiple occasions and the phone still works perfectly. Although, every time it landed it water the phone acted unresponsive until I dried the water off of it and then it worked like a charm. My only complaint about this phone is that it is a Motorola phone and Motorola updates their phones really late in the game or does not at all. So, the phone came with android 2.1 and the phone was very unstable, froze all time, and just made me want to throw it at the wall, but after the phone received android 2.2 it ran a lot better and was not as glitchy. Also, my phone did not come unlocked it came ready for use at T-Mobile only, but I have T-Mobile so, it wasn't that bad. It still freezes from time to time, but not as much as before.

Best selling point: water resistant and shock proof. By far this is the best phone I ever bought. I'm tired of having products that break down after 1 year. This phone has the potential to last for years. Honestly Motor Blur a bit too cumbersome, however I changed the ROM and it is as smooth as needed. Forget other phones that can't take a beating, I was this phone daily like I wash my hands. Something about the extra freedom of not worrying about your phone getting damaged. Just as robust as humans are. Battery life is great! I use it constantly for 2 days straight without recharging. Truly well done Motorola. You've fallen far from the tree, only now to sit atop it in the last few years. I hope you continue to make honest products like the Motorola Defy. You should market it as a phone that truly sets you free. No need to worry about it getting wet, or getting scratched as you have the gorilla glass. You can take it into the shower while listening to music, watching TED videos. Truly a great product. To me Motorola is producing honest products. Tired of those other smart phones that you have to treat like a delicate flower.

Motorola, Make more of these!
