Motorola DEFY: A good choice

Performance and overall

It would be unfair of us to say we that we didn't have fun using the Motorola Defy. Sure, it doesn't have the glow and lacks the polish of the year's best smartphones, but nevertheless the phone offers you a consistent performance. As from the call quality point of view, there's nothing bad that can be said. If you kept your eyes closed, you could't tell if the person talking to you is on the phone or standing in front of you. We tested the phone on the Telstra's Next G network especially for our rural readers, because Telstra announced that the Defy is the latest addition to it's Blue Tick phones helping customers which normally encounter call quality problems, reach a better coverage.

The phone's rugged casing protects it from any kind of splashes, bumps or knocks which inevitably ocurr in everyday life. You get a decent smartphone experience, with some really great toppings. The phone's multimedia is at it's best allowing you to do all sorts of things. You can take excellent pictures using the 5 megapixel camera, listen to music through a state of the art music player, and on top of it all comes the DLNA media sharing. If only Motorola would have used a more better processor and more RAM to rule out all of the inconsistancies that we came across, this could have have easily been in the top. Still, the phone is quite capable and shouldn't have a problem taking care of your needs.
