“In a fast adapting market...”

published 17/04/2013

ProReliable, sturdy, does what the best can

ConsDoes what the best can, but noticeably slower

I rarely write phone reviews, mainly because now with the android and apple markets, the sky is the limit with what mobile devices can do. A mobile phone has ceased to just be what its name implies, and has become a small rectangular P.A., storing all details about you, your friends, what...

ConsmotoBlur, weak camera

Allow me to go on record for saying that there is no such thing as an iPhone killer. Remember when the Samsung Omnia came out and everyone was marvelling at how it was going to destroy the iPhone 3G? Well, it didn't, and that is because all phones that come out after the iPhone did were all...

ConsUnreliable battery life.

The Motorola DEFY is a very good phone. It is an Android smartphone made by Motorola and has the added feature of being a high durable phone. Motorola promotes it as being 'life proof' (dust proof and water and scratch resistant). My overall opinion of the features the DEFY has is very good. As...

I've been using the Defy for around a year now and have practically no problems at all with it. It keeps up with its contenders in terms of speed, even though I have hundreds of apps installed, and with the added benefit of being waterproof and scratch resistant has made it an ideal phone for me...

“EXCELLENT PHONE!!”

ConsInternal Headphone broke and had to be sent back

Brilliant phone, everything works very well. Takes a long time to set up and get the hang of it because of the amount of features is has, but after that it is a very simple phone and easy to use and view text messages. I think if you are thinking of getting a phone within the price range of...

ProExterior is rugged, modern look, multiple uses

ConsMalfunctions easily

I got my Motorola Defy over a year ago and still have it to this day. I originally ordered it from a New Zealand website which ordered them from overseas, an asian country if I remember correctly - unsure of where exactly. When it first arrived I was in low! Too scared to do anything with it...

“Amazing phone.”

Proscreen lock, durable, somewhat waterproof, sleek, ...

Consscreen glitches, sometimes slow, hard to control.

The first thing I thought of when I held the Motorola DEFY is.. "Man! This thing is light weight!" This phone is very durable and a little waterproof! So if you're always somehow dropping your phone; this is for you! Don't be fooled by the weight of it, this little monster can take a lot. The...
