Motorola Defy+ review

 

When Motorola released the first-generation Defy in September 2010, it was an unusual proposition: an Android 2.2 handset that didn't totally skimp on specs but offered water, dust, and scratch...

Cell radio reception is fantastic ; Great battery life ; More likely to survive being dropped into water than other phones

Motorola's skin causes lag and generally slows the phone down ; Camera could be better ; Doesn't live up to water resistance claims ; Screen sensitivity issues are very frustrating

It's not too defiant, but resists more than most handsets

Motorola DEFY+ Review

 

Introduced at the end of last year, the original Motorola DEFY was a fun and compact Android model from the Schaumburg-based company. It managed to stand out from the crowd by being both rugged and well feature-packed. Among its key features, one could...

Motorola DEFY+ Review

 

Motorola's first try at rugged smartphones was the IP67 certified DEFY and now they've launched its successor, the DEFY+. It's got the same form factor, but the internals seem to have been modified. This one sports a faster processor and a newer...

The Motorola DEFY+ is priced at Rs. 19,490 (MRP) and Rs. 17,990 (MOP) which keeps it in the same price bracket of the Xperia Active. Besides the 720p limitation and relatively less vivid display, the DEFY+ covers all departments pretty well. It's a...

Motorola Defy+ - Pocket-lint

 

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

Survives minor abuse, cheap as chips, great screen

Crashes a lot, slow, battery isn't great, huge Wi-Fi problems

The Defy+ is an odd one. It's rugged, there's no denying that. So logically, if you need a rugged phone, then this might not be a bad choice. But that's a long way off a recommendation from us, because frankly, there's so much other stuff that's...

The Motorola Defy+ is an upgraded edition of last year's tough phone, keeping it fresh by boosting the processor to 1GHz and landing with a newer version

Motorola Defy+ Android phone

 

In late 2010, Motorola released the world's first rugged Android smartphone, the Motorola Defy. Fast forward almost 12 months later and the company ha...

Ruggedised: water and dust resistant ; Very competitive price ; Swype keyboard

Below average performance ; Motoblur software is mandatory ; No major upgrades over original

The Motorola Defy+ remains the only option if you want an Android phone that will resist the elements. We love the fact is is water and dust resistant, but Motorola's Motoblur software remains mandatory and the Defy+ isn't as fast or user-friendly as...

Motorola Defy+ review

 

Last year's Motorola DEFY was one of our favourite phones; its rugged construction meant it was built to take a few knocks, and a large screen, 5-megapixel camera and cheap contract price made it a sure-fire Budget Buy winner. The Defy+ is quite a...

The Defy+ has the same great screen, camera and rugged build quality of its forebear, and adds better performance and battery life and a much-improved Android OS

Motorola Defy+

 

One of our favourite phones of last year is back with a performance upgrade. Can this semi-rugged blower still hold its own a year on?

Waterproof housing is practical, Tough yet styish design, Screen is large enough for easy use

Processor is a bit sluggish, No button for the camera
