Cons: No frontal camera (and no skype video calls), No HD camera, The processor is not as fast as other smartphones.
-This motorola defy really turned me up since i`ve known it was waterproof, and thats a very good point at least for me, because i already lost two mobile phones because of water disasters. I tested that funcionallity with courage and it really doesn`t do anything to the phone at all.
-In the package, there were lots of things, including in ear headphones, a car charging adapter and also a normal wall charger with the europe plug (international version) but it does come with an adapter to the american plug, to my surprise.
-The Satellite GPS is a really great funcionallity, because you don`t need to use 3G neither internet to access maps and get directions to places, and it`s pretty fast too, it helps me a lot when and don`t know wwhere is some place i have to go, and i don`t even need to pay anything such as a 3G network.
-I don`t have much to say about Android 2.2, it`s a pretty good Operational System and apps (widgets) are pretty nice with a big extension of apps. And you can even update if a new one comes out.
-I think the really big thing that pisses me off is that Defy doesn`t have a frontal camera, and if you don`t have a frontal camera , skype automatically doesn`t make video calls, whitch i like to do it very usually. Another thing is not having an HD camera, but the 5 MP camera is not that bad, although HD is something that much cleaner and with more details (definition).
-The `not that fast` processor doesn`t make that much influence in the usual lite applications, but it makes some difference when you play some games and heavy apps.
My final conclusion is that this phone is a good phone for my routine and durable, and if you keep it protected it is even going to resist any kind of liquid. But about the cons, i`ll consider them as one less star. Four star for it.
Motorola Motoblur isn't very useful, but during startup you have to sign up. Supposedly Motoblur has online features such as finding lost phone etc, but I haven't worked that out yet, and Motorola isn't focusing on keeping Motoblur up to speed, and it's a pretty dead interface, pc mag panned it in 2011; you can get rid of most of the visual motoblur overlay boxes and just get it to look like a typical Android device.
Tried Google calendar, but i don't think google calendar works well on this phone (2.2), or at least the google family calendar... not supported (bummer i would have enjoyed that as the kids are getting older/busier).
Google Maps/Navigation is great, has voice search function. Phone has voice dial function, as well as voice texting.
Bought for about $ 66 each so a great deal, though phone is getting a little outdated but still very useful. Not a big phone like iphone so don't expect that. Great speakers. I love having buyers remorse but won't have any on these phones given the price and TMobile deal. Wi-FI phone too. Comes with earbuds/mic, plus car charger. Call clarity / sound = fine. Tough phone so great for my kids, wife will be fine with the technology (moving from a flip phone), I'm fine with it too because it works just fine
the actual phone is a unbranded french unlocked phone. i just turned it on and chose english during setup and it works fine. it came in motorola retail packaging. the oem motorola charger is a EU 2 pin charger with oem motorola usb plug. it came with a generic adapter to fit the eu 2 pin to a us outlet.
the system installed from the factory is 2.3.6. the phone itself is a little bit smaller for its size compared to the samsung rugby smart. it has not been dropped or tested in water yet. i don't plan on dropping it or dipping it in water. i purchased a "mesh" rubberized plastic case and a screen protector for it.
reception is good and the screen is bright. it's on at&t in california. speaker phone can be loud and clear. it's speed is good most of the time. google offline maps work on this phone. i can find my location with a map loaded and gps on. i've got my maps loaded for my europe trip!
I DON'T RECOMMEND TO BUY THIS EQUIPMENT.
