It does all this while still giving you a powerful Android phone, with a huge 3.7" display, fast 800 Mhz processor and even a 5 mega-pixel camera and Motorola's Crystal Talk noise cancellation technology. If your after a high powered smartphone, that won't give up the ghost at the first splash of water, the DEFY is it.

Mi Defy

Un móvil estupendo pero como todos los móviles viene con sus cositas. Si es agua resistente y tiene una pantalla anti rayas. El sonido no es tan fuerte como pensaba pero bien. Depende como lo usas la batería se va. Se congelé 2 veces en la primera semana mientras configurándola. Pero en general estoy contento con el móvil y SI recomendarlo. Un móvil resistente!! Ideal para gente que trabajan a fuera

Motorola Defy

This handset is FANTASTIC!!! Have had it for a couple of weeks now but still can't keep my hands off it! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! The only minor problem is that I got a case for it (for extra protection ;)), but it doesn't fit in the car mount with it's case on.

Fantastic Phone!!

I've been using the Defy now for about 4 months. It is my first Android experience and I have to be honest I've been blown away by it. The software is simple to use and set up, I was up and running out of the box much quick than with other "smartphones". In the SimFree market for mobiles I do not think there is a better smartphone available for the price. I have not been dissappointed and I would definately recommend it.
