5.0 out of 5 stars Hello Moto, 16 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Motorola Defy with Motoblur Sim Free Android Smartphone - Black/White (Electronics)
This is my first Android Phone + Motorola phone and I just love it (have been using Symbian + iOS up to now but never again).

Pros:
1) Great Battery Life (could go up to 2+ days on normal use, i.e calling + texting)
2) Rugged - The only phone that is rugged and not bulky. Why buy an iPhone and buy a Cover + Screen Protector so you can protect it etc when you can have this
3) Value for money - Excelent quality for less money (under 300 GBP) which makes it on of the cheapest Android phones that makes sense to buy
4) Perfect Size - Not too big and not to small.
5) Great screen even if not Amoled or HD etc. It just works and, colors are bright and Vivid.
6) Performance of the phone is quite snappy, even if it is running Android 2.1 Eclair
7) Supports Flash videos, which many more expensive phones do not.
8) Love MotoBlur - Personal opinion of course, some may hate it others may love it. For me it just works
9) DLNA support
10) Its a Mobile Phone that also does follow it primary role, make Calls!!! I have a lot of people compaining (me including) that iPhones have bad reception problems, disconnections, robotic sound etc etc, which is true, that is why I have stopped using it to make/receive calls or send sms. Although iPhones have a ton of features they fail to achieve the primary goal of a mobile phone, which is to work as a proper phone.

Cons:
1) Slow processor - There are phones out there with faster processors + Dual Core etc. As I am not using the phone as a Playstation Alternative, but as a business phone, I dont care that much about that. You get what you pay for, regarding this feature.
2) Old version of Android - Still running Eclair rather than Froyo or Gingerbread, although there is an upcoming upgrade to Froyo soon and maybe Gingerbread in the not so near future. Personally I am not concerned about that. All the apps I want, do work on this version of Android (Sygic GPS, Corporate + Personal Emails, Quickoffice, WebEx, DropBox, Dictionary, Google Translate, Citrix Receiver, Wifi Tethering +++) and they do work well.
3) Not very good quality regarding camera when shooting at night. Althouth I rarely use this..

Overall this is great phone. If you want a cheap phone with lot of features, which can withstand some abuse, then this is the Phone for you.
