The Motorola Defy+ was announced in August 2011 and released approximately 60 days later. It has all the features that made the original Motorola Defy a success, along with several major design improvements. It is available in both black and white.
The Defy+ is considered as one of the most rugged smart phones on the market. It is waterproof up to 1 metre in depth for up to 30 minutes, dust damage resistant, and scratch proof. Yet it is not overly thick or unwieldy unlike most other rugged phones. Specialized dual-microphone technology filters out background noise and amplifies your voice to make it easier for the person you are speaking with to hear you even in the busiest of environments.
It has a 3.7-inch LCD touchscreen display, LED notification light, and Motoblur, a new Android program that makes communication through email, text, and social networking easier. It also has a 5-megapixel camera that can capture both images and videos. However, it lacks a front-facing camera for more accurate self-portraits or video call applications.
It has an expandable memory card slot that supports microSD cards up to 32GB, which is useful because it only has 2GB of internal storage. Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS is the default operating system, and the phone can connect to 2G, 3G and Wi-Fi networks.
The Motorola Defy+ runs on a speedy 1GHz processor, as opposed to the slower chip found on its predecessor. And yet battery life is better on it, proving that it is indeed a worthy successor to the original.
