I now recommend using an app call "SetVsel" available on the market developed by Inteks, as it is specifically for the defy and does away with the need for various apps Original Thread

Not my work, just posting up here. Props to trickyhenry over at XDA for bringing this to my attention and of course the guys responsible for bringing the Milestone-Overclock to us and adding support for the Defy.

Google Code link: http://code.google.c...es/detail?id=63

So as per the above overclock is now available for Defy. Rooted phone is needed for this to work.

Download the Milestone-Overclock.apk and install.

Open the app and click on load module, then use the slider to select your overclock

QR code for direct access to the apk:

link removed due to a better solution being available

When Paul gets Froyo (or maybe even GB, who knows?) ported to this little beauty, she's gonna FLY :P

Thanks for posting!

I just set mine @1ghz and using SetCPU to ensure it scales properly between 300mhz and 1ghz, I'll keep System Monitor (GET THAT APP!) logging for the next 3 days, I'll be sure to post my results. 800mhz -> 1000ghz really makes it more snappy and it was no slouch before. I hope the battery doesn't take too big a hit.

1ghz/60vsel seems stable... Gonna keep it here I think :)

Although I wonder how little power it really needs to keep running at 800mhz...

I'm running 1ghz 56 vsel - with no stability issues, Its fair enough seeing what we can get out of it, but in the real world, I don't think it needs any more than 1ghz. I'm not really seeing any difference with battery life at 1ghz either.

Hey guys...this topic is really making me consider this phone. I'm due for an upgrade. Help me here......I was originally going to get the Galaxy S, thought about the new nexus but it looks like a glorified galaxy s in all reality to me......but now I'm really thinking about getting this defy ! Am I understanding this post that it is out performing the galaxy s ?!? I know the screen is a bit smaller ,but what is your opinions on this Defy vs the Galaxy S.....screens,speed,etc.....?

One of my coworkers has the Galaxy S, running Froyo... My Defy is running circles around it :)

I've been overclocked at 1ghz for the last 5 days without a glitch, so now I've started undervolting it in small steps to see how little juice it really needs for staying stable at that speed, thus getting great battery life while outperforming all the big, expensive handsets. And that's on Eclair, imagine how this little beast is gonna leave them in the dust once it get's Froyo! :)

That's kinda what I'm thinking Dkspook. This phone seems to be a bit of a "sleeper" in the andoid market. I have been stuck in the cliq xt for a year and hated every minute of it. Just don't want to get "stuck" in another phone I will be un-happy with. Moto has REALLY sucked on support of this device. ITS STILL ON 1.5 !!! thats why I finally gave in and rooted it. Really has scared me of Moto devices.
I ran quadrant on my cliq hit a staggering 256......WOW. Then I ran it on my wifes Droid and it surpised me with a 755.......way higher than the chart shows droid. What gives there ?
What do the stock charts look like on the Defy with Quadrant? And check out this "benchmark" review I found.....are these guys crazy? Or why did their test come out so below average?

I am curious - has anyone done any comparison between devices in real-world scenarios, i.e. not just benchmarks?

To me, it matters more whether applications run well, smoothly and are stable than whether it starts up a fraction of a second faster than on a phone I do not have nor have any intention of getting anyway :(

can get some serious speed out of this thing.
guess its very snappy at day to day use since the processor is from the same family as the g2. that is aslong as blur doesnt bring it down

So I've been playing a little with this and just figured I would post my results for the record.
My starting point was 1Ghz and 56vsel; which resulted with ~1134-1190. Also, might just be me, but the menu felt just a little sluggish.

Tried a few combos landed on 1Ghz & 58vsel:

Average Range (Low-High):

But ya this phone is damn fast. Oh btw benchmarking done on: rooted, T-Mobile Defy running UK firmware, slight tweaking (removed unused default soft, so ~30 apps); runs with ~41% used ram.

Motorola to take on an amazing phone based on Android, which seems to be a bigger phone is released. Defy phone is a incredibly well built and very sturdy. Even if you do not challenge the best shows of the recent Android phones, is a reasonable middle-of-the-line phone Android, which is a nice display and a decent processor. And even if the phone has already been reported in Europe, challenging the recently released United States.
