I was looking for a top 10 phone replacement for my 2nd hand motorola k1 red edition, and I was about to choose between Defy, Droid, Iphone ,BB Storm2 & Samsung Smartphone line up.
First of all.... The term "Can handle everything that life throws your way" caught my attention. I must say that I'm a careful guy when talking about gadgets but it came to my attention that the phone will resists drops (every moto does, but not as advertised) water, dust and some other thins that could damage part of the phone (screen) or make it die... but you know, when happens s**t happens, so it's better to be prepare for that.
2nd thing was the simplicity of the phone, 2 external button (volume and turn on-off screen) anything else it's in your screen. Some people does not like the motoblur interface but I believe that it's not bad at all.
3rd was the screen size, 3.7" is perfect for me, I thing that bigger that you'll be buying a mini tablet.
4th was the 5MP camera takes pretty good pictures and video, sharp, good color balance and also have a flash (led one but does the job - please take in mind that never... NEVER a phone can take Quality Pictures as a Photo Camera does).
And 5th and last one... the price... 365 Shipped and Unlocked it's a Very Good Price for a phone like this... Maybe DROID can be more powerful but for the use that I'm giving to the phone (talk, little web surfing, SMS and 2- 3 pic per week) I believe that I do not need anything else.
Samsung and Iphone are expensive for me, BB and Apple too like to make phones with good intentions but mid-potential (last ones are so so) in other words BB and Iphone are the "Fanciest and today famous phone that everyone likes to showoff".
Maybe one thing is that Android Honeycomb OS (just for now for tablets) has just came out to light a couple of days and many people is asking, what's going to happen with my phone? If you're planning to but a DEFY don't be worried because in 2Q of this year (2011) the OS will be updated so basically you will rebirth your phone - rumors says that maybe a HD video update will come.
Something that I forgot to mention it's that if you like music, you wake it up with a 32GB SDHC micro card and have hours of tunes (I've just sold my 1st.Gen 30GB ZUNE in order to make my Defy a Juke Box - 2gb card it's included).
To end If you are thinking about a pretty nice phone upgrade but don't want to spend much, DEFY is the one for you.
Fortunately I am a technology professional and the Droid 2 fits my life perfectly. It has so many geek toys and applications that nobody could use them all; although I am trying to find a reason too. But a word to those who don't totally understand technology. Be wary of many of the downloadable applications. Some of them have a soul purpose of harvesting your data. For example, why would an MP3 player application require access to your address book? Why would a flashlight type application want access to your data package? There are many applications that are just what you want them to be but there are just as many who want to be granted excessive permissions for unexplained reasons. But overall, the fact that they can fit the power of a netbook, GPS, HD camera, cell phone and all in a slim pocket sized device is just incredible...
The Droid 2 is not only the true evolution of its Moto Droid predecessor, but contains the best traits of all the Droid or Android based phones as a whole.
Except Dual sim and good camera i do not see any returns in this phone as this phone is not at all supported by any regions where Motorola is available
I have tried the below country Motorola / Mobile service provider for Internet setup in this phone as I have Data plan with Tmobile
T Mobile was not ready to support as this is manufactured in different country other than US
Motorola US - was not able to support
Motorola - Singapore - is the country manufactured but not ready to support
also called many countries only end up paying for telephone calls.
For now, i am just using for my voice calls and data plan is un utilized.
This phone does an excellent job of integrating a lot of the digital things in my life- has Wifi so I hardly get my laptop out anymore when I need to surf the net. Integrates facebook, emails, twitter and some other social networks all into one-- it magically filled my whole phonebook by harvesting facebook for all my friends details without me doing anything. When I click a person in there I get to choose whether I want to text, call, email, write on their wall, fb message or poke them! Android OS is getting a lot better and the market has some lovely apps. I downloaded 'Sipdroid' which lets me make voip calls for free via my SIP provider over the wifi! I get to call internationally for free when i have internet straight from my phone instead of using my pc. GPS is good and so is the camera quality (unfortunately has no flash but the autofocus is actually great for change!), records your location when you take photos, and google maps estimates your location using cell towers (to about 200m) even when GPS is off. Addictive, looking to buy a second one so that they don't keep borrowing mine to play robodefence!
Pros: Small, slim design. Java apps. Walkie-Talkie capable. Easy to set up with Boost. Great signal. Uses standard mini-usb port.
Cons: Very small screen with low resolution. The keypad buttons are hard to push (might be due to my used phone).
Thoughts: Im using this phone as a GPS tracker for my car, so I will not be using it has a normal phone. Therefore I do not know how the call quality is or how it is to text on it. If you do not know what im talking about, check out instamapper.com and mologogo.com. However, so far for its purpose, it has performed well, although it does lose GPS signal more than I would like.
PS: If you cant get the web or calls to work after activating with Boost, try resetting the device: Settings->Advanced->Connectivity->Master Reset.
PPS: If you would like to set permanent apps (apps that run continuously in the background, while in the java apps menu, enter #159#. The default password is 0000 (i think).
