Review: Motorola Defy

Form Basics Extras Video Tour Wrap-Up Comments  11  

The Motorola Defy is the perfect phone for the young adventure type. This isn't your father's rugged waterproof phone, big and covered in rubber and steel plate. This phone is sleek and attractive and light, but still tough enough to withstand an occasional dunk or being dropped on the trail.

Best of all, the Defy is a real smartphone. It doesn't run an old version of Android (though it doesn't run the newest version, either), and it doesn't slouch on fast data speeds or deep social networking integration. It's a fine, if somewhat underpowered, Motorola Motoblur smartphone, even before you take it for a dip.

The phone did give me some trouble. The interface could be sluggish. Wi-Fi never properly connected to my home network, which means I was left out of the Wi-Fi calling party. But in so many ways, from messaging to music to basic calling features and sound quality, the Motorola Defy gets it right. This doesn't top the best super phones on the market, but if you're willing to sacrifice just a little performance for impressive durability, the Motorola Defy is the best choice for you.
