Description

Motorola’s flagship smartphone, the Defy, have come out with their latest offering, the Defy XT. Like the other Motorola Defy before this one, the Motorola Defy XT comes in a bar form. This device is run on the trustworthy Android v2.3 (Gingerbread) OS that is backed up by a 1 GHz processor. The smooth functionality of the apps is ensured by a 512 MB RAM that provides for the diverse apps that can be run on this phone.

The screen on the Defy XT is a 3.7-inch Capacitive Touchscreen display with an FWVGA resolution of 854 x 480 pixels.

The primary camera on the Motorola Defy XT is a powerful 5 megapixel device which also possesses video recording capabilities. The camera is endowed with Autofocus, Geo-tagging, Image stabilization and Image Editor features, which along with an LED flash, make for a more than capable camera phone. The Defy XT comes with a secondary front-facing VGA camera that allows the user to make video calls easily.

Design

The Motorola Defy XT has an appealing design with nominally curved edges. It has a slim 11.95 mm thickness which makes it easy to hold in the hand. The device weighs in at 115 g which makes it relatively light in weight. The screen is protected by the strong Corning Gorilla Glass which adds a degree of sturdiness to the device. The phone also comes with a Proximity Sensor which kicks in when the device is held close to the ear. This sensor prevents the user from tapping unwanted buttons while making a call by switching off the display.

Storage and Battery

This Motorola Defy comes with a healthy 1 GB of internal memory. The phone also possesses an expandable memory slot which can amplify the memory by up to 32 GB using a micro SD card. The substantial apps on this device are powered by a 1650 mAh Li-Ion battery which promises to give a talktime of up to 9 hours when used on the 2G network.

Connectivity and Features

The phone promises to keep the user connected under most situations with a wide range of connectivity features. The phone features GPRS and Edge technology to keep the user connected to the internet over the 2G network. For a faster browsing experience on the move, the phone is capable of connecting to the 3G network as well. Additionally, the Defy XT can also connect to the internet through its WiFi function. The user can send and receive files and documents on the phone via the micro USB port or through the Bluetooth functionality. The phone can also be tethered to another device using the WiFi hotspot feature. The phone also has a water resistant and dust resistant feature which adds value to its robustness.

In addition to the above features, the phone comes with assisted-GPS functionality which is used in the Google Maps application. The phone is also an entertainment aide featuring a music player, a video player and an FM radio. Additionally, the phone also features useful apps like Gmail, Google Talk, Youtube and Google search.

Big Difference between Defy Plus & Defy XT

Well, i am been using these phone for a week now and i will give you an honest review..
If u think this Defy Xt is better than Defy Plus, then think again..
1 - Biggest Difference between 2 phones is Defy XT uses MotoSwitch UI whereas Defy Plus uses MotoBlur..Now any motorola user can tell u that MotoSwitch is far vfar better than MotoBlur..Infact Motorola uses MotoSwitch in its high-end phones like Atrix, Razr, Droid etc

2 - Defy XT has a secondary camera

3 - Battery life is as good as De...

NO ICS UPDATE TO ANDROID 4.0 ICECREAM SANDWICH..

Excellent phone with minimal damage guarantee.. But Launch was delayed much beyond anticipated. Price is too high when compared to other phones with similar features.. Also Motorola has confirmed that This phone will remain with Android 2.3 version for the lifetime as there will be no upgrade available for this phone.. Overall Its a nice phone to have inn.. but pricing will be an issue..

What's the use ?

My Defy+ has the same specs except the front cam.
Rather the XT comes with a lower battery life than Defy+.
And Defy+ also has a vast developer support.
I'm already running CyanogenMod 9 with ICS.
It is also 1k cheaper.

You can buy it for build quality

I bought the phone just two days back.
The phone has pretty good form factor that impressed me. Feels good on hand. Good that it has very bright and clear display. It has FM radio.
It has Front cam.
This is supplied with 2GB SD card (expandable to 32 Gb)
The phone supports GSM (the motorola India website says only CDMA) Don't be confused on that.
The call quality is good. Wifi is good..
Sound quality of speakers is only okay, I expected even better... The supplied head set is not in-ear ...

Nice UI with MotoSwitch2.0

+ Looks much better than Defy+
+ Smooth functionality MotoSwith 2.0 UI
+ You can jump to your favorite app from Screen lock
+ Sufficient battery backup
+ 0.3 MP Secondary Camera
+ Smartly placed Speaker

- Picture quality was not so good even with 5MP Camera
- unfortunately you have to use application like Skpye/Gtalk/Tango to make video call as Deft XT Not supporting video phone call

I am using the phone from 2 weeks and I face only issue with the Music player that Volume increase to 100% ...

Decent medium range phone

I liked the phone for
Good about the phone:
- Good user interface, fonts, screen and display quality
- decent for those looking for phone of 3.7 inches and not too big like samsung galaxy s2
- onscreen keyboard is good for typing even with big fingers (not for too big)
- you tube video quality is very good
- from my 1 week of usage, battery life is good - gives 1.5 days for decent usage of wifi (1 to 2 hours), phone calls (1 to 2 hours) and music player (1 hour)
- external speaker sound when...

Might be the best choice for heavy use

Seeing the comparisons with defy+ and defy XT or any other phone of this price range, this phone has quite good specs, its torture proof..so ppl who use there phones recklessly, u should go for this phone for the price range. Got in 3 days, thanks to flipkart..!

I didn't face any problems.

Worth for Moto fans..!

****Defy XT at this price awesome buy****

After reading all the reviews i almost decided not to buy this phone, but still i bought it and to my surprise its was a diamond..
