After the success of Defy, Motorola has come up with an upgraded version of the phone in the form of Motorola Defy +. The handset has the same looks and dimensions as its predecessor but some notable changes have been made in the internal hardware and software front.
Motorola Defy + measures 107 x 59 x 13.4 mm and weighs 118g and fits nicely into one's hand. The phone is dust light and water proof (IP67 certified). As per tests conducted by Motorola, it can withstand exposure to up to 1 meter deep water for 30 minutes. At the front, you'll find a 3.7 inches TFT capacitive touchscreen display made of Corning Gorilla Glass. The display has a resolution of 480 X 854 pixels and supports up to 16 million colors. Other features include touch sensitive controls, multi touch supports, accelerometer and proxy sensors and much more. The handset comes with an internal memory of 2 GB which can be further expanded to up to 32 GB using an external microSD card. A 2GB microSD card is included in the phone box.
Motorola Defy + sports a 5 mega pixel camera which can take photos up to a resolution of 2592 X 1944 pixels as well as record videos at 30 frames per second. It also has an LED flash which means you can take high resolution photos even in low light conditions. Other features of the camera include geo-tagging, image stabilization, autofocus and much more. On the negative side, there is no secondary camera so you will not be able to make any video calls. Connectivity features include Class 12 GPRS with speeds up to 32-48 kbps, Class 12 EDGE, HSDPA with speeds up to 7.2 Mbps, HSUPA with speeds up to 2 Mbps and Wifi. You can transfer data to and from other devices through Bluetooth or microUSB. The handset is powered by a 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor and has 512 MB RAM. It runs on Google's Android operating system (Gingerbread) and uses Motorola's MOTOBLUR UI with Live Widgets. Motorola has not announced any upgrade for this phone so do not expect to run Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) on it. You can listen to songs and watch videos using the inbuilt music and video player which offers lots of options like playlists, album art, etc. Pre-installed apps include Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Google Talk, and much more.
Motorola Defy + is available in two colors – Black and White. If you loved the original Defy, you'll definitely love the Defy +.
