Advantages: Neat, Ruged, Good size.
Disadvantages: Lock button is hard to press, Camera a bit disappointing.
I've been using the Defy for around a year now and have practically no problems at all with it. It keeps up with its contenders in terms of speed, even though I have hundreds of apps installed, and with the added benefit of being waterproof and scratch resistant has made it an ideal phone for me.
Although everything I've said above, there are some drawbacks; after using it for a long time in one go it does become a bit unresponsive sometimes, such as if you are texting multiple people and constantly switching between the texts it starts to lag, making you wonder whether you pressed a button or not so you end up pressing it again which causes it to just go crazy... not too much of a problem though as if you just leave it alone for a minute it will be okay again.
The back cover seems to come off a lot, not really a problem, just an annoyance but could put a little bluetac on it if it does annoy you too much.
One thing to point out is the lock button (or whatever you call it), the button which you press to wake / turn on / turn off / lock your phone, maybe it's just me but it is really hard to press! It takes several goes each time I want to use my phone to try and press this button in. This is really annoying for me however it does mean no one knows how to get on to my phone meaning I don't need a password as people press this button and when nothing happens they can't work it out... you'll get used to it though, although it may just be a fault on my phone. But if it is on all phones, it would not be suitable for the elderly or people with chubby fingers.
Overall a great phone, been put through its paces, dropped, got wet, used in shower, constant calls and texts, taking pictures (camera not great compared to other phones but still acceptable). Will definitely be using for a while yet! :)

Summary: A great phone for anyone active that needs something to last.
