Motorola Defy

The Motorola Defy was announced earlier this month and claims to offer all the features and performance of a smartphone. And in addition, it is dust-proof, water and scratch resistant. So is it really as good as it’s said to be? Read on.

The Defy is the latest Android smartphone from Motorola, and it seems strange the company has decided to give the handheld such a name. Perhaps the answer to the naming convention lies at the phone being “life-proof”. What is “life-proof”? Well, according to the company, a life-proof smartphone is a no-worries phone, meaning it suits any user’s lifestyle and that you don’t have to worry about the phone display getting scratched or if you accidentally spill water on it. Yes, the Motorola Defy is both water and scratch resistant, thanks to its Gorilla Corning glass display.
