This smart phone is a very good phone for the person who has never used a smart phone before. Very easy to learn. It is dust and water resistant, which I consider very important. Battery Life Since this is my first smart phone, the battery life does not seem as good as my flip phone. However, since I can access the internet, I did not expect that the battery would last as long. Display/Screen Quality I am very impressed with the clarity of the display. It is very clear and sharp and with the settings, the brightness can be turned down when using the phone in bed first thing in the morning. Call Quality The call quality is excellent. I have never heard any interference and any kind of static noise when using the phone. Ease of Use With just a few quick lessons from the agent, I was on my way to using my first smart phone. The settings are very east to follow. It is very easy to install and use the apps. The volume control on the side is handy and quick to use. The camera is easy to use and the settings for it are self-explanatory. Durability My Motorola Defy is holding up very well. It gets repeatedly powered up without any problem. Design Sleek design with rounded corners. Very slim which makes it easy to carry or fit into a small purse.
