By: cwestley | Posted: 10th February 2011

Motorola has recently released the Defy, a fully functioning Android Smartphone with a twist. Whilst it boasts similar specifications to numerous touchscreen Smartphone out there, it has the added bonus of being both waterproof and dust proof, meaning that those who live an active lifestyle or work outdoors for example do not have to sacrifice features to have a hardwearing mobile phone.

The Motorola Defy measures up at 107x 59x 13.4 mm and weighs in at a lightweight 118 g. It comes with a 3.7 inch TFT capacitive touchscreen which boasts a pixel layout of 480x 854 pixels which is able to display up to 16M individual colours resulting in superb image display quality. The screen comes with touch-sensitive controls, multi touch input along with proximity and accelerometer sensors. The screen itself is made out of Gorilla Glass which adds to its hardwearing credentials.

A generous 2 GB of internal storage is provided as standard; however there is also a microSD card slot which comes with a pre-installed 2 GB memory card. Therefore, users have ample storage place for their music collections of video clips, photos etc. However, should users require further storage they can replace this with a memory card of up to 32 GB, providing substantially more potential storage space.

Class 12 versions of both GPRS and EDGE keep the Motorola Defy connected to cellular networks. They also provide the initial means of Internet access along with 3G coverage, whereby an HSDPA connection provides download speeds of up to 7.2 mega bytes per second. An additional means of browsing the internet is provided by full Wi-Fi connectivity which allows users to take advantage of local wireless networks whenever they have the appropriate access, for a faster and more reliable connection. Bluetooth and micro USB connections are also provided to connect the handset to compatible hardware devices.

The Motorola Defy is also a highly competent cameraphone. The 5 megapixel digital camera boasts a pixel resolution of 2592x 1944 pixels and comes with Autofocus, LED flash and image stabilisation to both simplify the task of taking photos as well as improve their quality. Another feature is geo-tagging which functions thanks to GPS. This keeps track of where users took their photos and shot their videos. Video footage can be shot using this camera in VGA quality at 30 frames per second.

The operating system of choice is the widely popular Android OS, in this case version 2.1 (however this is upgradeable to later versions). Alongside a powerful 800 MHz processor, the Motorola Defy provides a lightning fast user experience as well as an ideal platform for customisation and expansion thanks to access to the Android Market were users can download additional apps, infinitely increasing the versatility of the phone.

A long list of features is included as standard ranging from entertainment and productivity features as well as social networking applications and multimedia compatibility. All of these features and more are found in the great looking Motorola Defy, which has the bonus of being hardwearing without sacrificing its features.
