Motorola, $299 Telstra.com.au
★★★★ Few phones are truly
beach-ready, but Motorola is challenging
this idea with an updated version of its Defy handset. The Defy+ arrives in the same shell as the last model, with a battery cover that locks on, plastic covers on its ports and exposed screws for a rugged look. It, too, is dust
proof and waterresistant. You can dunk it in up to 1m of water but shouldn’t make a
habit of it.
