Why you should get this phone.
So after getting my defy, I wondered why its such a secret among the general public - it has its own (awesome) tv advert, its really high quality, and on top of that it has android! Whats not to love?
Anyways here is a list of why any potential buyer should get this rather than a BB, iPhone etc etc
1. Android- maybe one of the more obvious reasons, but it is the most open mobile platform, meaning you can customize it exactly
how you would like it rather than how a company thinks you should have it.
Supports a long list of software that any businessperson, gamer and social networker would ever need.
2. Toughness- Ever wanted to watch some youtube in the shower? well now you can, with the motorola defy anything is possible.
Ok maybe not, but still- there are many videos demonstrating how resistant this phone is to water scratches dust sand etc, so if you are one of those people who go through many phones then this is for you.
3. Screen- Soo its not the retina display, or a smexy AMOLED, but it is still amazingly beautiful at about 60% brightness(conserving battery ftw
3.7" takes up most of the phone, making it really
small compared to desire, iphone etc which is nice, because wasted space kinda sucks.
4. Price- the most important point of all, its insanely cheap pricetag- £300/$400 ish for a phone that is(should be) competing with the iphone(one of the most sold phones ever, if you havent heard
-Can run angry birds with 0 to minimal lag -when ads appear
-Runs spyro on psx4droid at steady 50fps with minimal frames dropped (only one of my old psx games i tested so far)
-Best multitasking ability ever, wish moto included app switcher in the dropdown though
-1000 to 1100+ on Quadrant. Best score for stock 2.1? If this is the case, then it may beat some of the higher up(?) android models eg G1 when running 2.2, yey
-Decent camera at nighttime, much better than the reviewers have been saying imo. Much better than my old phone, marketed for its camera also 5mp. Obviously cant compete with actual cameras (10+) but then what phone can? excluding the n8.
-You WILL fall in love with swype. Even i was doubtful of its wizardry, however now i dont like typing normally(been about 5 days since i got it)
Real keyboards need swype (C) ?
-Personally i didnt notice the 'lag' in motoblur homescreen, its just their version of elasticity but kinda faily. Obviously switched to Lpro for 3d drawer and multidock. Dont care for the other crap.
Anyways, rant over
Hope you enjoyed the read and contstructive criticism/additional info welcome
