Motorola DEFY XT Review and Specifications

Motorola DEFY XT Review and Specifications - Since they're so compact, cell phones get put in hurt's direction frequently, whether that is when rushed clients forget them in the downpour, pocket them beside sharp keys, or essentially splash them with drinks unintentionally. One noteworthy disadvantage to strong telephones however is that they've customarily looked like lumbering military fittings, not the more regular smooth and advanced handsets of today.

The $99.99 Motorola Defy XT for U.s. Cell is an endeavor to think outside the box, offering security from dust, water, and scratches without the revolting guards or flashy colors found on the common rough telephone. From the beginning its not difficult to slip-up the Defy XT, carefully wrapped up in a conservative and appealing bundle, for your normal handset. The gadget likewise emphasizes a splendid screen you can read under solid daylight. Then again, prepared with woefully old fashioned parts, maturing Android programming, and 3g information, the Defy XT won't break any execution records, so control clients ought to guide clear.

I'd wager in the event that you held the Motorola Defy XT in your grasp, you'd never get it was a solidified and tough cell phone. I was shocked by the gadget's cases of sturdiness also, since the Defy XT is exceptionally minimized and lightweight. Measuring a simple 4.6 ounces and measuring 4.5 inches tall by 2.3 inches wide by 0.5 inch thick, it may not be ultrathin however fits into pockets effortlessly. It's really close in size to the HTC One V  (4.74 inches by 2.35 inches by 0.36 inch, 4 ounces), an alternate petite handset accessible on U.s. Cell.

The telephone's good looking dark and-ash shade plan and progressive oval section shape additionally loan it a business-easygoing stylish. For example, it doesn't have affected rough terrain vehicle-style guards like other tough versatile models, for example, the Casio G'zone Commando . Indeed the Defy XT's antecedent, the first Defy , had a much beefier outline complete with unattractive screws intended to drive home its modern quality development.

Truth be told, the main genuine signs to the Defy XT's unpleasant and-tumble family are prudent elastic folds covering the telephone's USB port and 3.5mm earphone jack. An alternate indication is a switch on the once more of the handset that bolts its battery spread. The spread, covered in an appealing delicate touch surface, secures the 1,650mah removable battery and microsd card opening.


The Motorola Defy XT's 3.7-inch presentation is on the little side when you take a gander at today's Android superphones. With a low 854x480-pixel determination, the telephone's screen absolutely won't clear you out with its sharpness or shade creation. When I saw the Defy XT side by side with the HTC One V, it was clear that the One V's showcase had more dynamic shade and more extensive survey points. Additionally, however the Defy XT didn't make oversaturated tints (something the One V was blameworthy of) its screen had a somewhat blue tinge that was not engaging.

One positive thing I can say in regards to the Defy XT's screen is that it is not difficult to peruse in solid daylight, conditions where most cell phones flounder. That is extremely valuable considering that individuals in the business sector for a tough telephone will probably utilize it outside regularly.

Software and applications 

In the event that you hope to discover a cutting edge working framework on the Motorola Defy XT, plan to be frustrated. The telephone depends on a maturing rendition of Android, 2.3 Gingerbread, and not Google's most recent Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, or even Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

Still, as an Android gadget the Defy XT unites with Google's Play advanced business sector, which offers in excess of 700,000 applications for download. Help for Google administrations is here as well, including Gmail, Google+ person to person communication, and Navigation for turn-by-turn GPS direction. The Play storefront likewise peddles a choice of computerized books, motion pictures, recreations, and music. Motorola places a couple of applications on the gadget to help you better appreciate mother nature as well. An advanced compass application will point the way, while a Dashboard application logs the rate and separation went amid runs and climbs and capacities as a pedometer.

Outsider applications preinstalled incorporate, Amazon Mp3, and the Audible audiobook membership administration. U.s. Cell has introduced a choice of its applications too, for example, Daily Perks for news and climate, and Mobile TV, which offers both live programming and full TV scenes and motion pictures. The administration costs an additional $9.99 every month and will puncture your information minutes in case you're not watchful - utilizing it over Wi-Fi isn't a choice.

With a 5-megapixel primary cam, don't wager on taking recompense winning photographs with the Motorola Defy XT. The handset catches pictures gradually and needing fresh subtle elements. This is particularly valid under low-light conditions; pictures I snapped in dim environs were cloudy and showed loads of color commotion. The glimmer had a tendency to victory subjects in the forefront, so I don't prescribe that strategy either.
