Hard & cheap: Motorola defy mini Android Smartphone

Outdoor and craftsmen phones are in demand because of its robustness, but not necessarily, because each craftsman or skydiver would be. That’s why the Motorola defy is mini now as “ lifeproof ” marketed and not more than outdoor mobile. This goes to the heart even more, because mobile phones now “ outdoor ” products are and the addition is therefore redundant. Also fits “ lifeproof ”, because even smartphones quite fall down, become wet or exposed to dust. Is good also that the defy mini don’t look after a particularly robust design – it is not a chunky plastic block, but a normal Smartphone with Android. Thus Motorola defy based Smartphone along on its successful predecessor.

“ Lifeproof ” – water, dust & brute force

The defy mini oriented basically to the Motorola defy, i.e. it is waterproof (not just splashing water!), has no cracks can penetrate dust and it has a particularly hard and scratch-resistant Gorilla glass touchscreen, like the high-end Smartphone Motorola RAZR. In addition to these qualities, which help the Smartphone to survive everyday life, it offers a solid middle-class hardware. Light in the 107 g and Smartphone is small (109 x 58.5 x 12.5 mm) a 3.2 ″ mounted display with a resolution of 320 × 480 pixels. The processor (ARM Cortex A9) is clocked at 600 MHz. A total of 512 mb of memory and a small internet the system are 128mb of memory which can be expanded with a MicroSD card. Clear: HSPA, A-GPS, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth stuck in your Smartphone. Worth mentioning is also the lush with 1650 mAh battery, which is a mini the defy above-average runtime should result in comparison to other smartphones with more processor power and larger displays (E.g. iPhone 4s, Galaxy S2).

Is the performance of the small smartphone certainly not ahead of the competition hiding thanks Android 2.3.6, which must be known, for its significant performance improvement when compared to previous versions. Who worth more places on a robust housing than on the fastest quad-core processor, can make mini a good catch for the Motorola defy. Who hardware power, robustness and design would like to combine, instead the (much larger) Motorola RAZR look at.

Defy or defy mini? Decides the price!

There is for the Motorola defy mini little compared to the slightly larger predecessors with 3.7 ″ diplay has done, the customer ultimately has the choice: while the display is slightly smaller, but also a significantly worse resolution has the Motorola defy (480 x 854 pixels) and also the weight difference of 11 g can now be the argument for the defy mini. Also the camera has no longer 5 mega pixel, but only 3 mega pixels. I’d ultimately depends on it by the price: the Motorola defy is available in the bridgat shop now for just over 200,-€. The Motorola defy will mini out now and is more expensive than its predecessor, so I would prefer to fall to the discontinued model, as long as it is still available.

Availability and price

Priced, there’s still no information from Motorola, which will cost the defy mini. Because it is ultimately just a reissue of the Motorola defy with slightly weaker display, I would expect more with a low price of about 200 euros. Get the Motorola defy should mini from March.
