Motorola Defy Review and Price India 2011

Motorola Defy comes with a 3.7 inch Touch Screen made from Gorilla Glass. The Gorilla glass has exceptionally good scratch resistance and hence the Defy can handle abuse beter.The screen has an impressive 480 x 854 pixels resolution. The Motorola Defy has a 5 mega pixel camera with auto focus and LED flash. It is 3G compatible and can work as a 3G Hotspot as well. It runs on a 800 MHz Cortex A8 processor. The operating system used is Android 2.1. The best part about the defy is its use of smart sensors to make the phone really smart. Placing the Defy face down, puts it in vibration mode and a simple double tap on the screen is good enough to silence an incoming call.
