    Hey every1,

    I am about to buy a new phone for me(and dat will surely be an andro), but i was really confused about dese 2 phones d galaxy sl and mototrola defy,both phones r really good as of their prices. the galaxy s has a superior processing speed with a 1 ghz processor but it lacks the led flash which i think is the only drawback of the phone,the defy on the other hand has a flash but it lacks 720p video recording and with d motoblur interface is a bit sluggish. both phones are in my budget ,so plz help me as to which shuld i get, and if dere's ne other phone which is better than dese two, thks

    The Samsung is a far superior device. I would count on it being technologically relevant for way longer than the Defy. I assume you're on Tmobile and may want to wait a couple of weeks for the LG GX2, which is the first dual core awesomeness to reach TMo.

    The Galaxy does have better overall stock specs. However, if you're willing to root the phone (using Visionary makes it a one-click ordeal), the Defy can match, if not exceed the Galaxy S. There are also hacks out there that give the Defy 720p. Plus the GPU in the Defy is only slightly weaker than the Galaxy S. Choose the Galaxy S if you want something good out of the box and willing to pay more. Choose the Defy if you're willing to tinker with it and pay less.

    Well it depends on you. if you are considering out of the box features then defy built quality is superior, ram is 512 vs 478 of galaxy sl which would compensate processing power of 200mhz, so galaxy sl is not "by far superior" phone than defy. you can sacrifice better build quality, flash, pocket friendliness and get galaxy sl for better and a bit large display, 720p recording. both have same powervr 530 gpu
    note that defy can run at 1ghz and looks more promising if you are looking for custom roms/flashing etc

    720p recorded from a phone will only look good on your phone, for the most part. Dont buy a phone because of a camera.

    The big thing isn't whether Motorola will support it, but whether XDA will. If the rooting developers are willing to give it Gingerbread or Ice Cream, then it will have it. I have no doubt that the phone has the specs to pull it off.

    Galaxy SL is a better phone than the Defy. It is also more expensive.
    A better phone in this price range is the SE Neo.

    Question is, who is your cell phone provider? That would give me a better idea of what phones you can work with.

    Have you seen the picture quality the samsung phones started churning out starting with the original behold? The pics I have taken still look good when I am looking at them on my 34in TV.

    True the no flash is hurting, but if you take advantage of all the settings and your lighting you may not need it
