Summary: A true story: I took a tumble into a river this past summer while kayaking. This Defy was in my pocket and submerged for about 10 minutes under water.

Summary: Not going into details, just summary: Pros: Extremely sturdy, shock proof, water proof Value for money Good call quality Cons: Slow processor, only 512 MB RAM not enough for newer applications
Summary: The phone arrived and was working properly however, the charger was not compatible with an American outlet. I had to purchase an adapter. Within two weeks of normal use, the phone began to malfunction - I was unable to hear callers.
Summary: It was a bad experience when buying this phone because when I turned it on everything right, but at the time I made the call I realized that the speaker was bad and not listening to the other person who was speaking. I think these phones are not new and are repaired.
Summary: The phone is fine. The only problem is USB-cover. It looks like NOT waterproof, because of loose fit. So, I would say - weatherproof, NOT waterproof off the box. To make this phone waterproof IP67 the USB cover has to fit more securely.
