"Had this phone for a week now and pretty happy."4.5 starson by purpledecker
Pros: Perfect size to fit in Work Uniform. Camera not as good as Nokia or as easy to use, but compared to the HTCs and Iphones I tried it works great. Just point and shoot.
Cons: Bluetooth buzzes when using hands free.
Summary: For years I have had (and destroyed) many Nokias. The last was a N97 mini, and that was the straw that broke the camels back. From poor reception compared to virtually every other phone I or my mates have (regardless of where I held it) to crap batteries, the only thing that Nokisa seem to have now is better cameras. I am a Heavy Mechanic and tracel all over Australia and Overseas, so I wanted a Smartphone that "just worked", but it seems that so many manutacturers are so interested in packing so many features that they just forget that people actually want to use these phones on a daily basis too. Enter the Motorola Defy. The first thing that caught my attention was the waterproof and heavy duty build, it has to be a plus..... but a few minutes with the phone in my hand and I had to have it. I get great service everwhere my N97 didn't, and now that I'm getting my head around the Android system it gets a bit easier everyday. I do wish that the camera was a bit easier to use, but you have to remember that it is a water resistant phone, so it can't have a million buttons. Touch screen is the best I have tried......still miss the tactile buttons, time will tell, but if you want a phone that is a bit more of a allrounder it looks like this may well be the one. Battery life seems to get nearly two days which is a bit better than your average smart phone. For $600 bucks outright from Telstra it seems the perfect compromise for a real persons mobile phone. If it continues to be reliable it might even sway a few other iPhone and HTC users. Ultimately I care very little for Brand names and must have cultures, just give me a damn phone that works.........................
