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+ 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

Motorola Defy+ review


Motorola's Defy+ brings an interesting twist to the smartphone in that it is a ruggedised handset, certified as IP67 compliant. IP67 is one of a number of internationally designated ratings which codify the degree to which devices can withstand shocks...

Overall, the Motorola Defy+ impresses. The rugged features don’t bring it to industrial standards, but might provide some extra solidity in everyday work or leisure use. There are also some nice software extras, and the handset is a good size for...

Motorola Defy + Review: In Depth


The Motorola Defy+ is the sequel to last year's successful Motorola Defy, which you may remember from the TV adverts featuring hard partying kids jumping into swimming pools with the Defy, and said…

Durable, hard-wearing design ; High resolution screen ; Well-integrated music app

Camera slow to take pictures ; Not great for gaming or video ; Overall performance is slow

Motorola has done a good job with the DEFY+, bringing what was a top handset of last year up to date without sacrificing any of its star solid features. It isn’t ultra thin or ultra chic, but it is a well made, functional smartphone.

Motorola Defy+


We would sum up the Defy+ as ‘okay'. It's a reasonable mid-range phone but its only stand out feature is its durability. It's a great choice if you want a phone that will last a long time and be able to take a day-to-day battering. However, this is a...

Motorola Defy + Review


If you're rough on your phones, the Motorola Defy+ is phone for you

Great survival ability; good design; great Android Gingerbread OS, plus some handy Motorola widgets

Snapper is very average; disappointing social networking app
