Review: Motorola Defy

Wired
1 week ago
  • Excerpt: While other phones are going large, Motorola is taking things in a different direction: small and tough.
  • Pros: Compact enough to fit in a pocket without causing embarrassing bulges. Surprisingly resistant to liquid immersion. Lightweight. Whaddya know — a smartphone that actually works well for voice calling!
  • Cons: Lightweight plastic body screams “middlebrow,” not “sophisticate.” Barely enough battery to last through a typical day. Cluttered with widgets you probably won’t use (but which are easy enough to delete). One generation behind the most recent Android version.

Análisis Motorola Defy

gadgetoweb.com
3 November 2014
  • Summary: El Motorola Defy es un equipo sólido en todos los aspectos: por fuera y por dentro. Está construido con materiales fuertes para que pueda resistir a cualquier eventualidad, pero sin resignar calidad de diseño. Es un equipo duro, pero con ningún grado de tosquedad en lo estético. En lo funcional trabaja a la perfección, con un SO envidiable y una amplia gama de aplicaciones que lo ponen un escalón por encima sobre los equipos de otras marcas.

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 (Republic Wireless) Review

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.

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.

Expert Review

Mobile Tech Addicts
7 November 2011
  • 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 Defy – Is it Really as Rugged as it is Smart?

Tech2
2 September 2011
  • Excerpt: The Motorola Defy is designed to offer the regular smartphone user just a little bit more than standard mobile functionality. Goodness knows we’ve got far too many choices for that genre as it is with plenty more on the way. So as of just know, while the Defy can be your average mid-to-high end Android smartphone it’s slightly rugged shell gives it a wee bit of an edge over the competition.

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

Android Police
28 July 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.

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 (T-Mobile)

PC Magazine
10 June 2011
  • Conclusion: The first great rugged, waterproof smartphone, the T-Mobile Motorola Defy is the handset to get if you're rough on your stuff.
  • Pros: Waterproof and rugged. Awesome speakerphone.
  • Cons: Motoblur makes the OS a bit sluggish. No HSPA+. No hotspot mode.
