scaramanga89, 11 Aug 2021232g with a plastic back. Nonsense. The Motorola Defy with it 5000Amper bateey and 230 grams is light phone.
I have ruged Blackview 6600 phone- it weight is 380 grams with 8000 Amper batery. I want to take this Blackview to 4 day tekking route without charging possibilities.

My last Huawei sank in tea.
My sister peeled potatoes and droped her phone in bowl with water and potatoes.
Security case do not protect "regular" phone against the water.
I decided to try rugged phones and purchased the Blackview. It is cool to drop fone in water, to swim with it, make underwater photos and videos, and call with it again. :)
Now I purchased Defy for 10 years old kid. I hope, he will use it at least 2 years.

Andres, 11 Aug 2021Rugged phones are scams, don't fall for it. If you're paranoid just buy a normal pho... moreMaybe a scam for office workers but definitely not for outdoor works. Regular phones don't survive a week or a month in a fish market or a coal mine. Even rugged phones die after a year of regular use on those harsh environments. Putting a rugged cap in a 'soap' phone expecting to be protected like an IP68/69K, 810G/H phone, it's a joke.
cyber, 15 Aug 2021ulefone is a low end chinese junk,this one at least is made by lenovo which is not that badUlefone does have a 500g rugged mobile phone, they are known as the Swiss Army Knife in mobile phones, Power Armor 13 with a capacity of 13,200 mAh.

The UleFone Armor 12 is light and thin, equipped with 15W wireless charging, dual super linear speakers, and Play Through Speakers headset-free FM radio, which is enough to attract me.
It might get 11. No way it'll get 12. These slow update rollouts are exactly why I got oit of the ground handling biz.
If you're not looking for a super rugged phone (and "normal rugged", like, "can survive an occasional drop" will do), you can just get a rugged case for your favorite phone. If the phone is popular enough, it usually has a ton of cases available. Like Samsung A52 - tons of cases. I tried ASUS ZenFone 8 but couldn't find a case in EU (ok, maybe I preordered before the cases hit the market, or maybe I was CHEAP by not willing to pay $60+ for a case + shipping + import tax from USA, A52 case was $10, add $10 glass and you're set).
SuperionMaximus, 10 Aug 2021The base configuration for the Nokia XR20 is only about 100 Euros more and you get ALLOT more ... moreI agree to you and for me makes sense. But other folks may not be interested in spending more.
100€ more is money that not all are willing to spend.
This is an outrage to the original Moto Defy...
Just horrible. I had the original and it was incredible: Portable, durable, excelent speaker...
An amazing device. This has nothing to do with it...
17 cm long. No way i carry such a brick while i am working.
i miss blackberry
Weird how this review does not even mention that this phone is the successor to the 2010 Moto DEFY which was the first IP67 rated rugged phone on the market. The bold design and thick plastics carry over from the original.
232g with a plastic back. Nonsense.
Rugged phones are scams, don't fall for it. If you're paranoid just buy a normal phone and put on a rugged case on it.
SuperionMaximus, 10 Aug 2021The base configuration for the Nokia XR20 is only about 100 Euros more and you get ALLOT more ... moreDon't forget to mention that SD480 in Nokia XR20 is way faster than this SD662 in Moto Defy
The base configuration for the Nokia XR20 is only about 100 Euros more and you get ALLOT more for that money.
More Rugged MIL810G vs H on the Moto
Bigger, higher resolution screen
Dual Band Bluetooth 5.1 with 2X2 MIMO
3 year warranty with 1 free screen replacement
Android 11 out of the Box with 3 years of Android updates and 4 years of security updates
It all that is not worth the extra 100 I have no clue what is. If you're buying a rugged phone, you're probably buying it to last. The Nokia is WAY more future proof and has better support.
The defy is great if you want a budget phone for the kids that will survive the school yard, but for anyone serious who wants to hang on to a phone for a bit and needs a rugged phone is better off splurging on the Nokia XR20. For the extra money you're getting more out of the box, and a stronger long term commitment with future proof where it counts hardware
