Motorola Defy is a dust proof, water resistant and scratch resistant, Android phone from Motorola. Defy is now in India for a price of Rs. 18500. For someone who always want to buy a touch screen phone but are afraid of its high maintenance now have a good choice. Motorola Defy could just be the kind of touch screen phone for a little rough usage. Suited especially for India’s dusty conditions.
Motorola Defy has a 3.7 inch display screen which is a scratch and impact resistant Gorilla glass. It has a 480×854 pixel screen resolution. Defy has a 800 MHz OMAP 3610 processor, 512 MB RAM and 2 GB internal storage. Memory can be expanded to 32 GB through a microSD card slot. Defy runs Android 2.1 and comes with Motorola’s customization of MotoBlur.
Motorola Defy is 3G enabled, has WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth and a FM Radio. One of Defy’s special features other than being dust proof is its dual microphones. Called as CrystalTalk Plus, Defy comes with dual microphone which amplifies voice and filters out noise. This should help you minimize the “can you hear me now” moments. Of course it can still suck if there isn’t enough signal.
Defy offers a 6.8 hours of talk time – decent for a phone of this size and a 9.9 days of standby time. Motorola Defy has a 5 megapixel camera with digital zoom and LED flash.
QWERTY obsessed Motorola has sent out a full touchscreen phone which happens to be water, scratch and dust resistant. No other phones launched so far have boasted to do all that. That should give enough fire power to catapult Defy off the sales cycle. Based on the specs alone, Motorola Defy, is a comparable several top-end HTC phones which are launched in the 20K-30K range, with a few specs here and there. Motorola Defy has got the pricing just right.
Motorola Defy is a phone worth buying, thanks to its competitive specs and its rugged handling capabilities.
On a different note, shouldn’t all touch screen phones be dust proof too?
