Motorola DEFY – Not quite so lifeproof ?

Motorola DEFY   Not quite so lifeproof ?Ahh bugger. Some pretty negative PR for Motorola today. The BBC Watchdog show has received a number of complaints from owners of the Motorola DEFY. They, like us, saw the adverts showing the handset surviving a pretty considerable drop onto a dance floor. However, in some cases the “life proof” phone hasn’t lived up to those promises.

In our review we were pretty impressed, it survived a running tap and more, but Motorola appear to be charging for repairs after owners accidentally dropped the phone. Their customer service reps are stating that the phone actually isn’t “crack resistant or unreakable”.


What are your opinions ? Personally we’d always recommend either a sturdy case or at least some phone insurance..
