Tough, with some annoying flaws
Member Name: colinbmw
Advantages: Tough, uses Android
Disadvantages: Battery Software Problem, Reflective screen is difficult to use outdoors
I bought the DEFY after a fair amount of research, and a lot of searching to get it for a price I was willing to pay.Its big 'plus' for me is its toughness. I tend to break anything that isn't indestructible, and on this point the DEFY does very very well, and justifies the price.
The first 'minus' is that I had to send it for repair because it stopped charging. Apparently this was a software update problem but it was inconvenient even if Motorola handled the repair efficiently. The battery life can be good, or terrible depending on what features (ie GPS, wi-fi) you have turned on at the time. It's a bit annoying to manage these features to maintain battery life but it has to be done unless you want to charge the phone every night.
My single biggest annoyance is that the screen is very glossy, to the point where it can be impossible to use outside even when it is overcast.
So: OK if you need a tough phone, but it has flaws which may be irrelevant, or annoy you immensely
Summary: OK if you need a tough phone, but it has flaws which may be irrelevant, or annoy you immensely
