I was thinking to share my experience with all of you out there who are interested in buying a shock resistant,dust and water proof smart phone from Motorola.
I bought a Motorola Defy + and I must say I am not very pleased with it. First of it is not as they say, water proof, "for up to one and a half minute in a one meter deep water", not at all. I dropped it in a fountain and it only sank for 15 cm or so before I caught it, and the result was catastrophic. The water started to condense on the inside of the touch screen making it impossible to see anything on the LCD. Afterwards the touch started acting weird opening apps and making calls on its own. When I tried to call someone the proximity sensor wouldn't work and the touch and LCD wouldn't go to sleep so I would hang up the call with my ear. I'm not saying it's a bad phone, it does its job swell but contrarely to what I've seen on YouTube with guys filming under water, I'd say it's a bit unreal. Or maybe my phone was badly assembled.Try to expand you're search area regarding smartphones.Think that a water proof smart phone is still a matter of pioneering. Do you want to be a lab rat?
