The Motorola Defy is an Android smartphone designed to undergo all types of mistreatment such as crashes, scratches and splashes. While the phone is rugged at heart, customers will be astonished by the exterior’s small, sleek yet solid design. The micro-USB port and 3.5mm (standard-sized) headphone jack sockets are protected with removable covers, and the 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen is produced with Gorilla Glass, which is designed to tolerate those repeated knocks.   

The Motorola Defy runs Android 2.1, and features Motorola’s MotoBlur version 1.5. The operating system has its hiccups, with some widgets not running as seamlessly as they should, and on the odd occasion the phone can lag. The multitouch soft virtual keyboard is one of the Motorola Defy’s perks, and allows users to comfortably type onscreen. Some features on the phone can be difficult to find, making it counter-intuitive when you first start using the operating system. The music player however runs smoothly and allows users to view album covers, song lyrics and you can even view what other nearby TuneWiki users are listening to.

The battery life is another of the Motorola Defy’s admirable traits. In a world where smartphone battery life is sacrificed for more complex features, customers will be impressed by not having to recharge the phone at the end of every day.

The 5-megapixel autofocus camera is a substantial improvement from previous Motorola handsets. Sporting an LED flash, the camera manages to capture detail in well-lit areas, while only some details are lost in lower-lit conditions. Videos can be captured rather smoothly with good quality audio.

The price of the Motorola Defy comes in at mid-range, making it a more affordable (and more sturdy) option than some of the more well-known smartphones on the market. If you’d rather a durable, lasting phone while still offering smartphone features, the Motorola Defy with its longer battery life will be a tempting offer.
