Motorola Defy for T-Mobile Video Hands-on: This is What “Life Proof” Means
Motorola says the Defy is the most compact 3.7-inch Android phone on the market, but it’s a lot more than that. This highly durable device has a Gorilla Glass display that resists scratches, and it’s water resistant and dust proof. (Check out the commercial below that will be airing in the U.S. soon.) As you can see, Motorola isn’t targeting construction workers or outdoor adventures with this phone–although they’re welcome to join in the fun. It’s for anyone who is tough on their phones.
During our brief hands-on, the phone felt slightly bulkier than other Android handsets, but we liked the soft feel around the sides. You’ll also see that many of the port openings are covered to let out water, which is good but can be frustrating when you need to just plug in headphones or charge your device. Other notable features include Crystal Talk Plus for gabbing in noisy environments and Motoblur for keeping tabs on your social networks. The Defy will be hitting T-Mobile this holiday.
