Motorola Defy Mini

(Telecom, $399)

 The only thing that would make me go out and buy the Motorola Defy Mini, over other smartphones, is its price.

At $399 you get a whole lot of smartphone for your buck. But, as NZ PC World recently pointed out in a feature on low-cost smartphones, there is plenty of similar-priced competition.

What makes the Defy Mini stand out from other budget smartphones is its "life proof" status which it gets from its larger sibling, the Defy.

It's pretty much impossible to scratch or break - try attacking it with scissors and you'll find the Gorilla Glass deflects each blow without a mark. It also works after being submerged in water, so it's a great phone for the big outdoors.

Its three megapixel camera is less than average. But that's one of the trade offs of buying something cheap. Where the Mini and its more expensive parent phone excel is in toughness.
