vm fan's review of the Motorola Defy

original version, submitted Jun 19, 2012, 10:28 AM:

Was only OK at best

I'm in the Boston metro area. I only had this phone for about a month, that was all I could take of it. The phone itself was way too plastic-y (is that a word?) almost to the point of being toy-ish. One of the reasons I bought it was for the over the air FM radio but I could never find a headset that would give me good reception with this phone. I live in an area that radio reception is never a problem. It was definitely the phone or software. I have never had this issue with the Motorola Cliq XT or HTC Mytouch 4g with the same headsets. The screen size is pretty small, could have been the border around it or something but not great. Also the wi-fi connection would drop a lot! All in all I don't know if it was this particular unit I got or if they are general problems for this phone. I definitely was not impressed. The speed of the phone was relatively slow on 3G. Oh, and you have to sign up for Motoblur, there is no getting around this one and it just bloats up the phone. There are better phones out there. It's made water resistant by the plug in areas being rubber stopped - that's it.
