    Good: The USP of this phone is that it's rugged but this is a great smart phone in its own right. The hi-res screen is very sharp and vivid (it's also better outdoors and a slightly higher res than the HTC amoled screens). The processor is a lower grade than the most powerful (and much more expensive) smart phones, but you barely notice the difference (avoid using too many widgets if you want a very smooth interface). Angry Birds on this phone is very vivid and smooth. The phone is also slick looking for a rugged phone - it's a lot smaller than an iPhone but has a bigger screen, and you wouldn't think it was rugged apart from the covered ports.

    The only bad points are a (slightly) slower processor and the fact that it's running android 2.1. But it will be updated to 2.2 early next year so the phone will speed up with the more efficient OS.

    All this for less than £300 (half the price of an iPhone!), and the peace of mind that you can drop it and get it wet without it breaking (and paying the costly repair bills)

    Update: Still think this phone is great. I've customised the home screens with Launcher Pro (cost £2) which has a very slick look and great functionality (much like HTC's acclaimed skin) with pinch-to-expose and great social media / calendar widgets. I now use doubletwist as the media player which is great. Using "Advanced Task Killer" I kill apps which such battery life and memory - this app is a must for Android. I've experienced no lags with this set up and it's great to customise things the way you want them. DLNA is brilliant - I can play music over wifi to my computer - why do people bother with docks??

    I love Apple products and I loved my 3GS iPhone. Like all apple products it looks and feels like quality ...and then it was stolen. I did masses of homework. Should I get the 4G or stick with the 3G? In the end I finally settled on a Motorola Defy and I after a month, I regard it as one of my personal BEST BUYs for 2010. It feels like a genuine iPhone killer for people like me who are basically untidy, a bit geeky and don't want to spoil the look of a beautiful piece of engineering with protective covers. The Defy doesn't need a cover and I like the solid functional look and feel of it. At 118g (11% lighter than the iPhone) it is just the right weight. Light enough to carry in a shirt pocket and heavy enough to notice when it isn't there. It is fast and offers more possibilities for geeks. Android market is great and I am no longer locked into iTunes, which alone earns it a few points. I got a monthly T-mobile contract for 10 quid (100 mins 100 texts and 1GB broadband) and it gets 2G Orange coverage if needed. Skype works well and is great if you want to talk to fellow skypers for free. On the downside, it can't get many UK telly channels and iPlayer has yet to produce an android app. The camera is a bit flakey in unnatural light, but the flash helps and it does a reasonable job outside. From what I can see, if you want good pics get a good camera.
    All in all a great value for money product and highly recommended.

    Great service from Amazon! Delivered in 3 days (Ireland).

    Many thanks to everyone for the reviews!
    Here my 2 cents for potential buyers...

    I work mostly outside (wet conditions,dirty hands :-) so I needed something protected. Btw my prevoius phone died after my baby spitted on it :-)
    It's my first android, and I'm more than happy with my choice!!!!

    There was a lot of reports about earpeace problem (misplaced and gets broke when you stick headphones in - manufacturing fault).
    The "broken" ones were those made in the pre-series. So you can look to your box, and search for the serial.
    "xxxxYMxxxx, where Y identifies the year (L-M=2009,N-P=2010,Q-R=2011) and M the month
    (A-B=Jan,C-D=Feb,E-F=Mar,G-H=Apr,J-K=May,L-M=Jun,N-P=Jul,Q-R=Aug,S-T=Sep,U-V=Oct, W-X=Nov,Y-Z=Dec).
    So L012NU4H8T was manufactured in October 2010, just as an example."
    If you bought it and have been made before January 2011, you are an unlucky guy,
    or lucky if it didn't have problems untill now. If it's made after Jan 2011, there is no worry.

    Mine is QE - March 2011.

    I've been using my Defy for more than 2 months now, everything is working, no problems at all.
    Screen is bright and clear, responsive, pleasure to use, good under the sunlight, bigger than iPhone's one.
    Handset is well built, comfy body with good grip. Right size, right weight, fits palm perfectly. No problems to operate it by one hand on a go. With leather cover it looks much bigger and heavier (if you need that :-)
    Gets a good signal at the underground car park, where iPhone, SE xPeria Mini, LG Secret have no signal at all.
    Battery survived 12 hours of heavy usage, lasts 2 days on standby with occasional calls.

    Ok this phone currently runs Android 2.1 but is due to be upgraded to Android 2.2 possibly 2.3 early 2011 but do not let this put you off. I have had this mobile now for the 2 weeks and I can honestly say it's the best Android mobile I've ever owned. Yes it is water proof up to 1 metre providing you use the rubber plugs attached to seal the 3.5mm headphone jack and the charging port, these both take seconds to do. At first looks the phone seems too small to have a 3.7 inch screen but Motorola have laid everything out really well. It is a comfortable size to fit in your hand trouble free. The touch screen is very responsive and a delight to use. During calls the sound quality is very good. If you do not like the call quality there are 4 different call sound quality options. People have commented on how the Motorola interface is a pain and is too showy well it is, however with just a drag and drop you can remove any or all of the motorola widgets/apps until all 7 screens are completely blank then you can go about customising it with a layout, apps or widgets that are included or that can be downloaded (many are free) from the Android Market. The 800mhz processor is super quick, switching between apps and tasks with lightening speed. Texting and emailing is bliss with the added bonus of having the option of using Swype input. I'd never used it before and after some fiddling with the options it really does make texting/emailing so very easy. You can type without having to lift your finger off the screen! The Wifi capability is above average and connects to and finds WiFi hotspots really quick. The battery is 1500mah.Read more ›
