I'm Considering A Motorola Defy - Opinions?

Msg#: 4237679 posted 1:47 am on Dec 2, 2010 (gmt 0)

Honestly I only use the basics, I certainly do not "need" social networking, however I do need a robust phone and will gravitate towards the new IP67 standards.

Does anyone have any experience of this phone or any other new "rugged" phones I do not know and opinions?

One thing I do use a lot is texting to my various global offices therefore a comfortable keyboard input is essential...I do use a Nokia 3720, absolutely fabulous however an horrendous phone to use for texting...for my large male hands!

Any other suggestions are most welcome but remember I need a rugged phone:-)

It does not appear to have a physical keyboard.

What Android phones will have instead is a touch screen keyboard, which may have big enough buttons in landscape mode. You may want to try this input method in a store first to see if it meets your needs.

Touch input is actually a lot better than it sounds. My last phone was the first phone I got that didn't have a physical keyboard. I was a little apprehensive, this time round I actually looked only at models that only had touch screen.

In portrait made, its pretty good, and in landscape mode it works great. Its one of those things you can calibrate to your own needs. Once you run a calibration thats suited to you, its all good.
