I have always stuck with Nokia phones in the past, and it took a real leap of faith to plump for a Motorola. Not greatly promoted in the UK, the Defy+ is a great little phone! It may not be the newest smartphone around, but it works for me. I can get my e-mail, facebook, texts etc etc, and it even makes phonecalls too!! I did have a small problem setting up my Motoblur account, but that was easily sorted, and a glitch with my facebook was overcome by downloading a new (free) app. The Android app store is magnificent, and so far I have only found one app that I wanted that I needed to pay for. The memory size in the phone is a bit small, but it came with a 2GB memory card, that I swapped for an 8GB, so that sorted that. It has all the usual stuff like calendar, music, camera, and with the app store there is probably little that this phone can't do. It might be a bit small for some people, and the texting keyboard takes a bit of getting used to, but after 15+ years of Nokia phones it is all pretty new to me. The phone is allegedly water resistant, and it has a toughened screen, neither of which I have put to the test yet! I have found it hard to get accessories, largely because the phone is not a new model, but they are out there if you look hard enough. The only really bad thing I have to say so far, is that I can't change the text alert tone to anything other than something from the built in selection, so all my comedy text tones are now redundant. Saying that, if that is the only thing wrong with the phone, then it can't be bad.
