Unveiled back in August, the DEFY+ is an improved version of the popular Motorola DEFY. The device offers superior hardware and software performance and is aimed at active people.
The DEFY+ is IP67 certified and offers valid protection against scratches. Moreover, the smartphone is water resistant and features a dust-proof design.
Unlike the original DEFY that runs Android 2.2 Froyo, this one is delivered with Gingerbread on board and MOTOBLUR user interface with Live Widgets.
The phone now features an enhanced 1 GHz single core TI OMAP 3620 processor and packs 2 GB of internal memory, 512 MB of RAM, 1 GB of ROM and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB, 2 GB memory card included).
Even though Motorola DEFY+ has been tagged as mid-budget, it comes with a more than decent 3.7-inch capacitive touchscreen that boasts 480 x 854 pixels resolution. The touchscreen is scratch-resistant thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass.
On the back, the smartphone sports a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, as well as video recording capabilities.
The phone comes pre-loaded with several interesting applications, including CardioTrainer Google Talk, Zinio e-magazine service and Music Player.
The DEFY+ also features a better 1700 mAH battery, which is rated by the manufacturer for up to 7.1 hours of talk time or for up to 16 days of standby time.
“Motorola DEFY+, our latest life proof smartphone, delivers the endurance and design strength to keep up with even the most demanding lifestyles, along with the social and entertainment capabilities that put friends and fun in easy reach. We designed Motorola DEFY+ with all the smartphone features you need for a demanding lifestyle,” said Małgorzata Matusiewicz, head of marketing, Mobile Devices, Central Europe, Motorola Mobility.
