Conclusion: Like the Motorola Defy before it, the Motorola Defy+ is a resilient, tough touchscreen phone that does the basics. However it’s by no means the quickest not the most stable of phones out there. It won’t appease the tech-heads who want raw power, high end video and gaming credentials, but we imagine that casual gamers will be happy with what the Defy+ can download from the Android Market.
Pros: Durable, hard-wearing design, High resolution screen, Well-integrated music app
Cons: Camera slow to take pictures, Not great for gaming or video, Overall performance is slow

It is small, light and looks nothing like any rugged phones out there.

Summary: Need a phone to take scuba diving? Or maybe you're just congenitally clumsy? Either way, the Defy+, the update to 2010’s Defy, is for you. Unlike most rugged phones, this one is clever enough to be called a smartphone, with a 1GHz processor at its heart.
Excerpt: So, you're looking for a rugged handset that can see you through the day-to-day struggle of your hectic life. In that case, you might be considering the Motorola Defy+.
