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 (T-Mobile)

CNET
5 August 2011
  • Summary: The Motorola Defy is a great midtier Android smartphone, especially for those who need a phone to be a little more protected against life's everyday mishaps.
  • Pros: The Motorola Defy is tough enough to withstand everyday hazards with its tough Gorilla glass and rugged exterior. Features include a 5-megapixel camera, a music player, Wi-Fi calling, and GPS, and it ships with Android 2.1. Call quality is excellent.
  • Cons: The Motorola Defy doesn't take very good pictures and its rough-and-tumble aesthetic isn't for everyone. We also wished we didn't have to activate the Motoblur account to use the phone.

Motorola Defy (T-Mobile) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
1 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Kick it. Drop it. Scratch it. Bury it. Sink it. The first "rugged" Android phone for consumers, the Motorola Defy ($99 online with a two-year contract) can withstand all this and more. It sports a sturdy build, sealed ports, and a Corning Gorilla Glass display. But more than just providing a greater sense of security for the accident-prone, the Defy offers Motorola's Motoblur interface for quick access to Facebook and other social networking services, the ability to make...

Review: Motorola Defy

Wired
23 November 2010
  • Excerpt: While other phones are going large, Motorola is taking things in a different direction: small and tough. The new Motorola Defy is a compact Android phone that wisely eschews the gigantism of other smartphones. Instead of the HTC Evo’s 4.3-inch screen or the Dell Streak’s 5-incher (please!), the Defy, which is available now from T-Mobile in the United States, has a cute little 3.6-inch display with 480 x 854 pixels.

Motorola Defy

9 August 2011
  • Excerpt: Motorola, the cell phone company with nine lives, delivers to the market yet another Android-powered smartphone for review. Proudly named the Motorola Defy, this touchscreen candybar phone would make Captain Kirk blush, if only he had this kind of technology. While the Defy offers an alarming number of powerful features, it’s 3.7 inch, 480 x 854 pixel resolution display really puts it in the top tier of what is currently available for crystal clear, crazy crisp colors,...

Good Gear Guide.au
5 August 2011

  • Cons: Text is a little small, Display feels sticky, Touch-sensitive menu keys
