Reviews for the Motorola Defy 2

90% Motorola Defy 2 review: Armoured smartphone with satellite connectivity
Source: Root Nation English EN→zh-CN
Is the Motorola Defy 2 a benchmark among rugged devices in 2023? In terms of ruggedness, 100 per cent. Complying with such standards as IP69K and MIL-STD-810H, withstanding a drop from almost 2 metres to the metal, remaining functional at -30°C or +75°C – it is just an armoured vehicle among smartphones. And at that, in a pretty good-looking design for its class that doesn’t try to appear more brutal than it actually is. It’s also worth highlighting support for satellite connectivity – the perfect Plan B if you need connectivity where there is none. Also worthy of praise is the autonomy, showing more than 15 hours of active screen, and support for wireless charging, “pure” Android 12 with a guaranteed upgrade to version 14 (and security patch updates for 5 years), although not top-end, but quite fast hardware, and a nice display. As for disadvantages – subjectively I will single out only rather high location of the power button – technically you can get used to it, but you still reach under the volume buttons.

80% Motorola Defy 2 – rugged smartphone review
Source: Mezha EN English EN→zh-CN
The Motorola Defy 2 is a ruggedized smartphone designed to withstand harsher conditions than standard smartphones can. The model has several audiences at once, including business consumers such as farmers, industry that needs a smartphone to work in the fields, the military, as well as small businesses and private users who need a more shockproof device with a good level of protection against water and dust. Support for satellite messaging is not a major advantage in this context, but it may be needed in emergency situations. In general, the Motorola Defy 2 is a good ruggedized smartphone, but it fails to break the stereotypes about similar models that often use budget components.

Motorola Defy 2 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English EN→zh-CN
There’s no denying that the Motorola Defy 2 is just like most rugged phones, while at the same time, you will obtain standard specs. Still, the smartphone makers ensure that the users are the necessary armored phone features. Yet, the key selling point would be the satellite communication function. Apart from this, the phone is just like any other armored phone. On the other hand, the phone does resemble the Cat S75 and offers identical features. But if you are looking for something different, you can pick the Ulefone Power Armor 19 as an alternative option. The Defy 2 does have some downside, which includes normal battery capacity and average camera results. But if those things don’t bother you, then you can consider this phone.
