The mobile is little bit rugged type of handset and is the second Android phone followed after the Motorola i1 for Sprint and Boost Mobile. The mobile completely follows an alternate path for the mobile’s construction, as the exterior of the phone is mostly defined to resist water as opposed to drops. The two-tone hard plastic shell of Motorola Defy MB 525 feels durable enough, but guess it would still blemish under the most extreme conditions if the mobile is dropped onto the hard pavement.

Motorola DEFY MB525 is sized (0.53” thick) and in weight (4.16 oz) to make it feel well constructed all around. The mobile is pretty enough but cannot be beaten for its features.

The Motorola DEFY MB525 is equipped with a 3.7” TFT display which packs a resolution of 480x854 pixels which is more or less similar to that of DROID and DROID 2. The high pixel density of the mobile is high that it even gives sharpness to the text no matter how small the fonts are. The lush of the colors make our eyes to melt purely for its color. The viewing angles of the mobile is magnificent even under the dark sunlight.

The responsiveness of the mobile is great for all our presses and swipes. To keep the display safe, the mobile is equipped with gorilla glass to fight against unwanted taints. The capacitive buttons are found directly below the display and the this includes menu, home, back, and search keys. The keys are responsive but the possibility of pressing the buttons as they are placed very close.

The microUSB port is safely hidden away under a flap that makes sure there is an air tight feel. The mobile is taken care not to enter water into the phone. The same applies for the 3.5 mm head set jack which is covered by a plastic cover. The volume rocker and dedicated power button are raised slightly to allow our fingers to distinctly feel them out while offering some solid feedback when pressed. In the rear of Motorola DEFY MB525 is a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash positioned in their usual spots and seems to be well protected. At the bottom edge of the rear panel, a small opening is available for the speakerphone.

When immersed in the water, the mobile seems to work fine and specially when the water comes into contact with the earpiece. Anticipation increases when the mobile is fully immersed in to the water. The mobile also plays songs even if the mobile is immersed in to 2 inches of water. Impressively, water dripped away so quickly that it made the handset look as if it were never dipped at all.
