  • The 7-inch screen with 480 x 854 pixels display resolution is good for video viewing and web browsing.

Memory & Battery

  • The handset provides 1GB of internal storage, which can be increased with a microSD card.
  • The 1700mAh battery won’t require charging until you are halfway through the second day, so the battery life is outstanding.


  • 1GHz processor with 512MB RAM caters for smooth processing but there are a few lags when tested with heavy apps.


  • Running Android 2.3 the operating system, of course, Motorola Defy+ is up to date in this field.
  • Motorola Defy+ offers seven home screens.
  • The widgets are divided into two categories:
    • Motorola widgets

Duplication across the two sets causes some confusion but it is a nice touch.

  • The music app is really great which brings together FM radio, music, stored videos, YouTube and other online services.
  • The Car Dock app is also very useful, which cuts down the home screen to six large icons which are Calling, Google Maps, Voice Search, Music and another app of your choosing that can be used while driving.
