Waterproof, dust-resistant and tough enough to be counted as military gear, the rugged Motorola Defy mobile phone is capable of withstanding almost anything you can throw at it. Strangely enough, this toughness doesn’t come at the cost of functionality, although the somewhat weak processor and lack of Android 2.2 do count against it.
With such an impressive degree of resistance and durability, one would expect the Defy to be the size of an elephant baby, but its dimensions are bizarrely diminutive. Measuring only107mm in length, it’s a full centimetre shorter than the iPhone 4, yet it features a larger 3.7-inch screen. This pin-sharp 480×854-pixel display dominates the front of the phone, and uses capacitive technology to register touch input. As such, you’re guaranteed accuracy and responsiveness, as well as the ability to use multi-touch gestures, such as pinch-to-zoom.
The screen of Motorola Defy is fashioned out of super-resilient Gorilla Glass, designed to resist scratches. Motorola Defy is not the first mobile phone to boast such material — and it is highly improbable it would stand up to a direct hammer blow – but its ability to withstand assaults from sharp objects is impressive. The screen of Motorola Defy gets unscratched even after a direct attack with a Swiss knife. This means there is no need for a screen protector or any other protective mobile accessories if you opt for this almost invincible mobile phone.
