Motorola Defy - Expert Reviews


The Motorola Defy was one of the earlier Android handsets and seems pretty outdated now. Featuring dimensions of 107mm x 59mm x 13.4mm and weighing in at 118g, the Defy is dust-resistant, scratch-resistant and water-resistant.It runs on Android 2.1 Éclair out-of-the-box but can be upgraded to Android 2.2 Froyo. Sporting a clear 3.7-inch TFT multi-touch display with a resolution of 480x854 pixels (like in the DROID and DROID 2), it features high pixel density of 265ppi, letting you see clear images and read crisp text. The display is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass and features touch-sensitive controls. Motorola Defy is powered by an 800MHz Cortex-A8 processor along with 512MB RAM. A TI OMAP 3610 chipset has been added along with a PowerVR SGX530 GPU. While 2GB of internal memory storage capacity is provided, you can expand it up to 32GB using a microSD card. There is no dearth of connectivity options on the Defy. Some of the basic connectivity features like GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi, DLNA, Wi-Fi Hotspot (only in Android 2.2), 3G (HSDPA, 7.2 Mbps; HSUPA, 2 Mbps) and Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP. The smartphone is also GPS-enabled with support for A-GPS. The Defy is powered by a 1540 mAh standard Li-Ion battery that gives talk time of up to 5 hours 48 minutes and stand-by time of up to 238 hours. 

Operating system and UI

The Defy features Motorola’s own MOTOBLUR UI which has generally received mixed reviews. The UI features native support for various social networking applications such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace. 

Other Features

The preloaded Gallery app lets you view content in a grid-like format when in portrait mode. However, when you switch to landscape mode, you will be able to scroll through your photos in a 3D interface. You can share and edit your photos directly from the Gallery app.   Motorola Defy features the Connected Music Player that easily plays all your favorite tracks. Sound quality is decent, the external speaker is not bad and the included earphones are also of reasonably good quality. The music player by default looks up the lyrics and displays it with the music but you can turn this feature off if you want to. FM radio is provided that allows up to 10 presets. You get access to Shoutcast online radio which features hundreds of internet radio stations. Audio streaming is very good over Wi-Fi. Amazon MP3 store is also supported, from where you can purchase tracks. In the video section, you can either directly search for YouTube videos or tune in to some online TV channels. However you cannot play the videos stored in your SD card directly from the application. You’ll need to go to the gallery for that. The Connected Player supports the following audio formats: MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC+ and the following video formats: MP4, WMV, H.263, and H.264. 


The Defy sports a 5-megapixel camera along with LED flash. Picture quality is reasonably good: while long-distance shots lack much detail, the foreground detailing is good enough. The camera cannot distinguish between the light sky and the dark foreground. While still photos are reasonably good, video recording is below average, with a maximum resolution of just 640 x 480 pixels, which is too little. Video recording is shaky and is passable to be viewed on the handset only. 


You can access the internet in a variety of ways on the Defy, including GPRS/EDGE, 3G and Wi-Fi. The stock browser in Android 2.1 is powered by Adobe Flash Lite 3. Although you cannot access all sorts of Flash content, it does give you some access to basic content. However, you can always install Opera Mobile and browse away to glory! 


While you get only 2GB of internal memory storage capacity on the Defy you can expand it up to 32GB using a microSD card. 

Other Features

Some of the preloaded applications include Google Search, Talk, Maps, YouTube, Gmail, Document Viewer, Photo viewer and editor, organizer and integration of social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter into the MOTOBLUR UI. 


The Defy is powered by a 1540 mAh standard Li-Ion battery that gives talk time of up to 5 hours 48 minutes and stand-by time of up to 238 hours.



Motorola Defy is a tri-band UMTS (900/1700/2100 MHz)  and quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) smartphone, so you’ll be able to roam on international networks easily. In case you do not find a supported network, your phone has got you covered- a Wi-Fi calling app has also been added to the mix. As soon as you connect to a Wi-Fi network, you can easily make and receive calls. However, if you happen to find a cellular network while on a Wi-Fi call, you’ll have to disconnect the call first to switch networks.  In addition, the phone also features support for Bluetooth v2.1 and GPS. 

Other Features

While comparing the Motorola Defy with the HTC Desire, perhaps the first thing you’ll notice is that the Desire is much heavier but thinner in comparison. The Desire also features a more powerful processor and the ability to play higher resolution 800 x 480 pixel video. On the other hand, the Defy features much higher internal storage capacity, a higher resolution screen (thereby a higher ppi screen), and much more stand-by time. Both phones have 5MP cameras, multi-touch support, aGPS support and accelerometer support. 

Other Features

The Defy was launched by Motorola in October 2010.  At the time of its launch, the Defy was supposed to be unveiled as a unique Android handset that would occupy a special niche in terms of style and functionality. The Motorola Defy is an old phone that is almost outdated now. Since then, Motorola has launched two mid-range phones belonging to the Defy family- the Defy XT and the Defy Mini, both of which run on Android 2.3 Gingerbread and feature the new MotoSwitch 2.0 user interface. While most of the features remain similar to the original Defy, the specs have been beefed up to compete with the new budget Android smartphones that are rapidly flooding this category.   

Other Features

09 March 2013: Motorola Mobility, which is now owned by Google, recently announced of no plans to shut down India operations apart from the fact that it is not looking forward to any expansion of its offerings in the country. Talking of this particular handset, Motorola Defy was launched in India back in 2011 as an extremely rugged, dust and scratch-proof phone. The phone was then launched with Android v2.1 Eclair but soon got updates. The company later introduced two variants of the phone namely Motorola Defy XT and Defy Mini, seeing the changing market and consumer needs.

The features are:

* Boasts of a 3.7 inch TFT capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 480×854 pixels that in turn leads to a pixel density of 265 pixels per inch

* Has a 5-megapixel primary autofocus rear camera with added features like, LED Flash, image stabilization and Geo-tagging etc. It is capable of recording VGA videos @30frames per second

* Sports Motorola's MotoBlur social networking system with Live widgets

* Good to carry yet tough device for being water and dust resistant

* Packs in a Li-Po 1540 mAh battery which gives a maximum stand-by time of 238 hours

* Powered by an 800MHz OMAP 3610 processor
