Motorola Defy XT (U.S. Cellular) Review
The good: The Motorola Defy XT's attractive and compact chassis hides its rugged, dust- and water-resistant construction. At $99.99, it's also affordable.
The bad: Held back by an outdated processor, the Defy XT is slow, runs on 3G only, and has an unimpressive camera.
The bottom line: The Motorola Defy XT doesn't fear dust and water, but lacks the strength to power through smartphone tasks with speed.
