Motorola Defy XT (Republic Wireless)

PC Magazine
22 December 2012
  • Conclusion: Republic Wireless has an exciting service plan concept, but needs a better phone with more integrated services.
  • Pros: Only $19 per month for unlimited use. Makes phone calls over Wi-Fi and cellular networks.
  • Cons: Slow phone. Can't transition between cellular and Wi-Fi on a single call. So-so call quality.

Motorola Defy XT

LAPTOP Magazine
20 December 2012
  • Summary: The Motorola Defy XT and the Republic Wireless network that supports it are a classic case of "you get what you pay for." For $19 a month, you get a basic Android phone running on an old-time 3G network that can't send or receive MMS messages. While Republic Wireless' concept is disruptive, the fact that you can't seamlessly transfer from Wi-Fi to 3G and vice versa limits this service's usefulness. We also found the 3G calling quality to be much better than over Wi-Fi.
  • Pros: Cheapest wireless service available, Unlimited data calling and texting, Long battery life over Wi-Fi
  • Cons: Weak performance, No MMS messaging, Old version of Android, Inconsistent Wi-Fi calling, Short 3G battery life

Motorola Defy XT (U.S. Cellular)

PC Magazine
5 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The water-resistant, dustproof Motorola Defy XT for U.S. Cellular is good for a trip to the beach, but is otherwise best left on the shelf.
  • Pros: Water-resistant and dustproof. Comfortable size.
  • Cons: Old version of Android. No 4G. Short battery life. Strange paneling effect on display. Mediocre media playback.

Gadgetmania

  • Conclusion: The DEFY Mini looks like a pretty good deal, but there are still no details available about the pricing – it shouldn’t cost more than $50-70, though.

  • Conclusion: As for any upgraders, I managed to use the original Defy for a few days alongside the Defy+ and there is hardly any difference between them aside from the new Motoblur skin and the better internals. It just didn’t smash it’s predecessor out of the water.

Motorola's Defy XT isn't afraid of dust, scratches, or drenching rain

CNET
25 July 2011
  • Summary: The Motorola Defy XT doesn't fear dust and water, but lacks the strength to power through smartphone tasks with speed.
  • Cons: Held back by an outdated processor, the Defy XT is slow, runs on 3G only, and has an unimpressive camera.

Motorola Defy Review: In Depth

Recombu
30 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The Motorola Defy is a resilient touchscreen phone with a great camera and access to the Android Market’s store of apps. However the slow performance detracts from the web browsing and social networking experience - something to consider if you want to read websites and check Facebook on the go.

Motorola DEFY Review: It Doesn't Break The Mold, But Doesn't Break, Either

Android Police
29 June 2011
  • Excerpt: Motorola was kind enough to hook me up with one of their latest handsets, the Motorola Defy. Here's a video primer for the review that all your friends will be talking about tomorrow. If you read the review without it, you'll be in the dark: The Defy is, put quite simply, a great device - and excluding Motoblur, the bane of many Android users' existence, the thing flies.

  • Summary: The Motorola Defy is a great handset. If you're looking for an Android device, it's well worth a look, with the added bonus of being one of the toughest smartphones currently on the market.
