The lack of Android 4.0 is a shame, but the front-facing camera, LED flash and long battery life are more than you'd get on other budget handsets, and the Mini's rugged build is also a bonus.

Relatively rugged build, compact design, slow processor
Long battery life, dust-proof and water resistant
Unlike many budget phones, the Defy Mini has an LED flash to go with its 3-megapixel camera, and it also has a VGA front-facing camera that can be used for Skype calls - in our tests, it worked but produced an extremely blocky image at the other end.

Off contract pricing is totally unjustified considering what you get in exchange
Even though it is an okay entry-level Android smartphone, we think you should stay away from the Motorola DEFY MINI, at least for now. It is currently priced at about $250 off contract, which we find totally unjustified considering what you get in exchange. For that amount of cash it would be wiser to pick up the Sony Ericsson Xperia Active or Samsung Galaxy Xcover since both of them are resistant to water and dust, but come with better hardware specs. Alternatively, if you don't necessarily need a water resistant smartphone, the Sony Ericsson Xperia mini is also worth checking out as it co... Full review
