    Your Defy review is cool & informative – thanks.

    I would like to know if this device will come with Motoblur for indian market?

    flipkart is selling at very good price but the problem is of BTXX and BFXX or Blue Dot(google earpeice). I called Croma and Mobilestores in mumbai but their price tag is 18990 and 18999 respectively which I think so little bit costly than actual price.

    … flash the china or UK 2.2, overclock it, enjoy the water resistant and be happy … it is much better as you might think …

    Don’t worry guys I have recently purchased defy and let me tell u that its an amazing experience.every thing is so smooth,no ear piece issues at all ,voice clarity is superb it feels person is speaking in your ear.

  • January 30, 2011 at 7:03 pm

    Your delaying of the review video is giving Me bad thoughts about this device. I am thinking that the Defy you got is having some serious problems and hence you are not reviewing it. The company seems to be pressurizing You not to tell about the defect and hence not to upload the review video. May be they are sending yo a new Defy to review ?? If the Defy you got has a problem then please tell us about it. We have faith in you hence waiting for your review. Please do not disappoint. At-least tell if you will be uploading the review video or not. If yes when will the review video be out ?

    a small piece of advice — have patience, wait for the launch of samsung galaxy ace obviously by that time defy’s price tag would come down — n more chances to know the flaws in defy(if any)…, n samsung is way ahead in giving the updates …

  • January 29, 2011 at 7:36 am

    You usually dont take more than 2 days to review a device. what happened now ? Where is the review video ? any problem with the device ?

  • January 29, 2011 at 7:35 am

    Wow. Wow. Wait a minute. a guy in the last post about Motorola defy launch has said that he is facing a problem with his new defy. His phone seems to have stuck and is not restarting. I guess the set you have is also giving some kind of problem and that is why you are not uploading the review video ?

  • January 29, 2011 at 6:45 am

    Dear Bharat: Please reply if you are going to put up the video review or not.

    Bad news people.. Motorola Defy flipkart price increased from Rs.17999 to Rs.18699..

  • Vikrambharadwaj
    January 28, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    you guys already have the phone and you still need so many days to review it????
    Nobody is interested in your unboxing video..
    Of course there are reviews from other foreign forums but I want an indian forum to review it before I decide to buy it..

  • January 28, 2011 at 11:59 am

    I called one of Motorola Dealers in Chandigarh(G.D Electronics) asking them about MOTO DEFY.
    That ass said a thing and i was stunned.
    Lemme quote ,”Bekar Je Phone ni bechde assi”.

    Translation: “We don’t sell SHIT Phones”.

    hohoho…Maybe i should do a flipkart then. It’s 17999 there ;-)

      Thats another issue i`m concerned with having never owned a motorola. Most dealers i`ve spoken to have tried to put me off a Moto, as impressed with the defy as I am, i`m having second thoughts considering the galaxy ace is round the corner!

      • Dmrt85
        February 5, 2011 at 1:31 am

        When is Galaxy Ace/cooper releasing that too is a big question!!!!

        how much do we wait; theres still no 2.2 froyo in DEFY???

        guess i’ll just die in confusion and won’t buy any android…:(

      I don’t know where you are from but I am from Mumbai (Thane) and I am facing the same situation.. What’s even worse is retailers here in Thane and Mulund dont have Motorola stock (very few have only Quench XT3 and Milestone) and some are calling the company ********** and they say “Motorola band ho gaya.. Company doob gaya..”
      I am hesitating to do a flipkart as I wont b able to confirm that BT/BF and the Blue dot thing if I do a flipkart.. I mean what if the device they deliver doesn’t contain the blue dot or BT/BF..?

  • January 28, 2011 at 4:42 am

    When is the review video ?

  • Sid
    January 27, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    Hey Bharat , in your opinion, do you think Motorola will ever upgrade this phone to Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) after 2.2

  • January 27, 2011 at 2:38 am

    When will the review video be uploaded. I am desperately waiting for it as I want to buy this mobile.

    Hi Bharat,

    Thanks for the pics. Please upload the review soon and also is their any shops in bangalore where we can get some discount by mentioning igyaan?

  • January 25, 2011 at 2:10 pm

    “Well I wouldn’t say that either option is 100% valid. We have confidence that users with BT/BF on the label are not affected by the issue. Additionally the devices with the blue dot have been checked. They’re not likely to have the issue either.

    Motorola Support Forums Manager”

    can u verify whether it has BT/BF or a blue dot on the lable…????
