on the £7.50/month tmobile SIMO deal you can also get this IP-67-certified handset for £100!
total cost works out £280 =( £7.50 x 24mth ) + £100 for the 24 month term
thus for just another £25.70 (£280-254.30) you also get 600mins , 3Gb data , 500sms & a free booster for 2 years!
My pal just got this deal
My point anyway is spread the cost of the phone but in addition also get some minutes/web/text to play with!a

Eh? bit confused by this comment. The Defy is a tough smart phone. Most reviews have pointed out the camera isn't up to much. If you do sports though or want the piece of mind this may be a good buy.

Got mine and many others got theres for £78.99 so the statement should be is this worth £175 over the san fran!

Does look like a decent phone though but a little on the dear side..

Buy it and wait for the lack of support Motorola will offer you (don't bank on any upgrades).

Yeah but you wouldnt buy the Defy for its out and out speed or OS. You would buy it because you want a tough resistant phone. Thats who its aimed at.

If you want the "omg-ultimate-quad-mega".... Then you get the HTC Desire HD perhaps? oO

actually this is a great looking mutli-media phone
800mhz is as fast as you need as as fast as the new HTC Desire Z
faster then the HTC Legend (600MHz)

it also has a 800x480 screen

an outstanding phone at the price
just read the reviews and don't listen to some people who have never seen it and post here:

(note UK one is all black US t-mobile version has white ring)

Orange SF is very nice ( i have one)
But this phone will do FLASH on Froyo
and it iway tougher and better built than an SF
ARM 7 CPU 800 MHZ

I Think its fantastic phone for this price. Better CPU than San Fransisco>>>>better screen resolution and size ....and most importnant better battery life>>>>it has i think 1400 battery...which performas far better than HTC phones>>>>better mega pixel camera and most importnant flash ...so you can take photos at night\>>>>i have used san fransisco>>>camera is not good on that>>>

well I told told two pals actually ..
one already had the £7.50 deal , all she had to do was to extend the contract to 24 mth but she got the desire HD for £100
the other pal didn't take out the £7.50 deal initially but phoned up after the deal had expired & got this motodefy ( as she's rather heavy handed ) for £100 on similar terms.
Both are Tmobile newbies

Yeah it features "Gorilla" glass so you can run knives, keys etc all over it and it won't scratch. It's shock proof as well but it's not a phone you can run over with your car. I'm seriously considering one of these to replace my current tough phone... you'll never regret buying a phone you don't have to worry about getting wet etc trust me :-)

Anyone calling this phone is going against all the proper reviews I've read about it. It's no iPhone 4 but it's still a very decent phone apparently.

Plus, I guess with Amazon, I can just return it if I don't like it :-)

This phone easily better than the Orange San Francisco phone (which I own). The Orange is good for the price but its really a budget phone and build quality is pretty iffy and there's hideous noise through the headphone jack. Budget phone.

It doesnt work as a waterproof camera. The capacitive touchscreen doesnt work once the phone is submerged and there's no hardware button for the camera.

You could take underwater video by starting recording before submerging the phone.

Motorola have really upped their game in the quality handset stakes ,
their designs might not to be everyones' liking but they are well built
..I own the original milestone and lately the Ultra compact quirky flipout recently purchased for £99
.. both handsets sport full metal jacket housing although the battery cover on the flipout is plastic / and the screen's only QVGA
but well built they are!!
I'd like to add the DEFY to the stables too but cannot really justify it.
It's bound to drop in price as the original milestone did ( because it was undervalued at launch ) or it may go up in price as the milestone later did when everyone suddenly discovered the brilliance of the handset
..By the way all the motodroid handsets sport dual microphones/background noise cancellation technology just like on the IP4.

I want to add the Defy to my stables too, probably to replace my Samsung Galaxy S if I can get a good price for it.
I've been thinking about trading in for an original Milestone, I've wanted one for ages and now my girlfriend has one I'm super jealous. I've got a Motorola DEXT too, which I loved but the Keyboard broke (very common problem) and I can't return it because I put Android 2.1 on it so it just gets used as a Sat Nav now :(

if the only thing stopping you returning your dext under warranty is because you can't downgrade to 1.6 or 2.0 or whatever then think about reflashing your bootloader .. afterwards usually lets you move up & down the various roms happily..unless of course the only way to enter bootloader is via a button sequence on the keyboard ( which is broken!)

27% off any product is a fair saving.

CNET 4/5 stars
Techradar 4/5 stars

Both these gave it 4 out of 5. I assume not many products get the full 5 stars on these websites and of course you could debate how well written these reviews and how in depth these tests are.

Don't mean to be awkward. But how many products can you get a repair or refund on without a receipt to prove you are the original and first owner (the owner of the warranty).

When my Desire started overheating 8 months after I bought it HTC offered to pick it up, repair it and send it back FOC. No receipt asked for as the phone hadn't been released more than a year so they knew it must be in warranty.

Course I haven't had it back yet...

There is no firmware available for Orange UK Dext, even if there was I doubt the radio would work as 2.1 firmware required a recent radio (which can't be downgraded).

Oh well, might open it up and see if I can figure out what's wrong with it myself.
#39
How can anybody compare this to the San Francisco. Thats like comparing the BMW to a FIAT. Plus San Francisco is subsidized by Orange which is why it is going for that price. Motorolla has been making mobile phones since the word mobiles was invented. I am surprised the DEFY is selling at this price. And yeah it is scratch resistant - The screen is gorilla glass.
#40
I'll add that the call quality surpasses anything I've used before. It has a noise cancelling mic on the back which seems to help at the other end too. The screen is pretty good but this is where I would say the SF has the edge - deep blacks from an AMOLED are, to me, nicer. But this phone feels far more robust, the screen will be harder to damage, the speaker is loud and clear (unlike the SF) and if I want I can surf the net in the bath without having to be careful.

The price is good for SIM free so hot for that but I can't understand paying even this lower price for it when it's available on a £10/month (for 24 months) contract for a phone price of £35 - IOW £275 for the phone including two years of unlimited web access and landline calls an OK amount of x-net calls .
