About Motorola Defy

The Motorola Defy is an Android smartphone designed to undergo all types of mistreatment such as crashes, scratches and splashes. While the phone is rugged at heart, customers will be astonished by the exterior’s small, sleek yet solid design. The micro-USB port and 3.5mm (standard-sized) headphone jack sockets are protected with removable covers, and the 3.7 inch capacitive touchscreen is produced with Gorilla Glass, which is designed to tolerate those repeated knocks.   

The Motorola Defy runs Android 2.1, and features Motorola’s MotoBlur version 1.5. The operating system has its hiccups, with some widgets not running as seamlessly as they should, and on the odd occasion the phone can lag. The multitouch soft virtual keyboard is one of the Motorola Defy’s perks, and allows users to comfortably type onscreen. Some features on the phone can be difficult to find, making it counter-intuitive when you first start using the operating system. The music player however runs smoothly and allows users to view album covers, song lyrics and you can even view what other nearby TuneWiki users are listening to.
