Purchase Package

In the purchase package existing data cable, charger, earphone, manual and warranty card.
That is quite disturbing is the earphones are designed one side is longer. So that when the earphones are used both, it will be quite disturbing and eye-catching.


The design is simple but not designed to leave an impression of elegance. Because it is designed splash-resistant, anti-scratch and anti-dust, cover the body look more closely.

Even on the side of the rear body cover, there is a hook that is designed specifically to open and lock the phone. With rubber, the phone is comfortable touch, let alone grasped.

But a little strange is the body is made slightly bulging backwards. Not unibody like other phones. But overall, this phone is an elegant still viewed from the front.

Not many buttons on the phone. There are only a quick button on the right side of the camera phone, the volume buttons on the left side of the phone and the on / off and the earphone jack on the side of the phone.

For the memory card slot, located on the phone, just above the battery. There's also a cover to allow the memory card is safer, even more so when the phone is exposed to water. External memory is expandable up to 32GB.


Defy Motorola XT535 has a capacitive touch screen display face measuring 3.7 inches and a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. With these measures, the screen is quite a relief, especially for gaming. Although not very "cling" in the eyes.

Moreover, it has supported the phone screen accelerometer technology. So that users can freely use the phone both horizontally and vertically.

The screen also has been provided by the technology made ​​by Corning Gorilla Glass. In addition, the screen is also ditelah IP67 certification which must be given to protect the phone from all the shocks such as dust and scratches and even water.

When tested are given a splash of water, the screen phone like taro leaves. The water seemed not to want touch screen phone.

The phone also waterproof at depths up to one meter for 30 minutes. Provided that a locked cell phone cover.

Even when tested with iron was scratched, the screen does not have a scratch. In fact, just the plastic cover broken screens.

If often taken out of the house, the phone will certainly prone to dust. Do not be afraid, to clean it up too easy. Simply use a soft cloth gilt hands or to clean it.

Operating system

This phone is still using OS Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Although not yet received the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, this phone is quite capable in terms of user interface.

Moreover, there are distinctive Motorola user interface that is customizable MotoSwitch. For example, your favorite songs most often heard or the most frequently used applications will enter the main menu MotoSwitch.

This will allow users, especially when trying to play the song again, or make calls to the same person or the same application open before.

This phone is equipped with a Qualcomm MSM7227 processor of 1GHz. To run the processor, this phone also has been given though only 512MB RAM.

When tested for browsing, everything went smoothly, let alone run a variety of applications included.

But to get to the accelerometer feature, when switching from horizontal to vertical displacement felt there was a pause, if only for a second.

We tried to run games that have been downloaded from Google Play, all the game also runs smoothly.


This phone has been given a 5MP resolution camera with autofocus and LED Flash. Here also is there a setting such as black white, sepia and others.

To bring the camera menu, users can simply touch the screen. The menu is tucked in the right cell phone will be directly visible.

FM radio is also included in this phone. Radio can also be added to the list of automatically scanning the menu.

But the audio quality seemed less "kick". Quality stereo audio format not supported.

That is quite disturbing is the volume of audio and radio are fairly standard, can not be set at full capacity.

When radio was sounded at full volume, the sound quality is still inferior to the roar of traffic jams in Jakarta.

For those who love adventure or while off the lights, the phone will be very useful. There are features in this phone is pretty bright flashlight.

One interesting feature is the Dashboard feature. Here the user can measure the amount of calories and the number of steps when the phone is taken for a walk or run. However, this feature is not yet clear whether accurate or not.

Battery life

When the battery is fully 100 percent and not used at all (standby time), this phone may be able to survive about 30 hours.

However, when used occasionally for radio or play a game is nothing more than an hour, the battery can last about 10 hours.
