Rugged smartphones is a niche market and Motorola has added another smartphone in this sector. Motorola Defy 2021 is here in partnership with UK-based phone maker Bullitt Group. According to the reports, Defy 2021 is the first Defyphone since 2012 and has specifications similar to that of Moto G9 Play.

Motorola Defy 2021 sports a giant 6.5-inch HD+ display with the latest Corning Gorilla Glass Victus that makes it tough and resistant against falls and drops. The phone has a ruggedized plastic body that keeps it away from shocks and more. In fact, the rugged nature allows Defy 2021 to get IP*8 water and dust certification which is among the topmost in the IP certifications. You can use the Motorola Defy 2021 in temperatures ranging from a phenomenal -25 degree Celsius to +55 degree Celsius which is something a non-rugged smartphone won’t be able to withstand whatsoever.

The phone is MIL-SPEC 810H complaint as well. Having a ruggedized plastic body makes the phone drop-proof from up to 1.8m in height on concrete if it falls on the sides or the corners. The GG Victus protects the front from shattering as well although there’s a limit that you need to keep in mind.
