Ok this phone currently runs Android 2.1 but 2.2 possibly 2.3 early 2011 but do not let this put you off. I have had this mobile now for the 2 weeks and I can honestly say it's the best Android mobile I've ever owned. Yes it is water proof up to 1 metre providing you use the rubber plugs attached to seal the 3.5mm headphone jack and the charging port, these both take seconds to do. At first looks the phone seems too small to have a 3.7 inch screen but Motorola have laid everything out really well. It is a comfortable size to fit in your hand trouble free. The touch screen is very responsive and a delight to use. During calls the sound quality is very good. If you do not like the call quality there are 4 different call sound quality options. People have commented on how the Motorola interface is a pain and is too showy well it is, however with just a drag and drop you can remove any or all of the motorola widgets/apps until all 7 screens are completely blank then you can go about customising it with a layout, apps or widgets that are included or that can be downloaded (many are free) from the Android Market. The 800mhz processor is super quick, switching between apps and tasks with lightening speed. Texting and emailing is bliss with the added bonus of having the option of using Swype input. I'd never used it before and after some fiddling with the options it really does make texting/emailing so very easy. You can type without having lift your finger off the screen! The Wifi capability is above average and connects to and finds WiFi hotspots really quick. The battery is 1500mah. As with any smartphone if you have everything running you can get at least a day of use from a full charge but it you switch off WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS etc this will last longer than any others. To further save battery life, you can switch between 2G & 3G in seconds. Some reviews have been unfavourable towards the camera and camcorder features so I wasn't expecting great things. I have no idea what these reviewers are talking about. It's a 5mp camera with added flash. Unlike many HTC mobiles the camera once launched is ready to take pictures in no time atall without the usual wait for it to load and warm up. Click on camera icon, take picture. Easy. Picture quality is average for 5mp but in pitch black conditions the flash shows just how good it is.

I cannot find a single fault with this phone and every feature it has works extremely well. I have tried the new HTC Desire Z, HTC Desire HD, Samsung Galaxy S, iphone 4 and Blackberry Touch. The Motorola Defy is the only phone I would buy for myself and the low price of the Defy makes this an absolute bargain. Buy this phone, you won't be disappointed!

 Great phone

I had an HTC desire before this phone, And i prefer this Defy. its not quite as fast as the desire,But that might be because the desire was running andriod 2,2 which the Defy needs and is getting 2011 Q2.
It has the best email client i have ever used on a phone. Hardware wise this phone is very good such as the PowerVR SGX 530 GPU.
In short this must be one of the best android phones power/price wise.Totally underrated.

 Screen very brittle

This is a great phone and it really is waterproof. However i have now twice broken the screen. Last time was a drop on a wood floor from 6 inches that produced a crack right across the screen. I suggest silicone or other chock absorbing casing. Considering to buy my 3rd defy for its other virtues

 Mmmm Motorola Defy.

This is a pretty touchscreen phone with a rugged, robust build almost akin to the old Nokia 3310 of old. Motorola themselves bill this as 'life proof' and I'm certainly not arguing with that. This is powerful (800mhz processor), fast, easy to use and comes with everything you would expect of an Android phone (the market is superb). The speaker quality is nothing short of brilliant, I didn't even miss a phone call when I was next to a loud building site!
The battery will last around two days or so which isn't bad for a smart phone at all.
In short there is not much I can say about this phone other than it's fantastic! You won't find another touchscreen that has such an all round package and will always deliver. Very good value for money.
