Motorola Defy (2021) Review

Score: 9.68

Motorola Defy (2021) is a top quality phone released almost a year ago, with an enormous 6.5 inches screen, a very fast Octa-Core processor running at 2000 megahertz, and two cameras, a 48 megapixels back facing camera and an 8 mega-pixels front camera. We will get a better idea about this device's pros when we get into more details.

The Motorola Defy (2021) is quite a compact phone, taking into consideration it features a 6.5 inches display and it only has 6.69 inches long and 3.08 inches wide. Even though the Motorola Defy (2021) is very slim and comfortable it's not close to being one of the thinnest cellphones nowadays, with a thickness of 0.43". This phone construction is a combination of Plastic and Plastic . Motorola appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 8.18 ounces device. This device is for sale in two different color options, black and forged green.

Motorola packed the Motorola Defy (2021) with a very good 6.5" display, and a resolution of 720 x 1600 , making everything look very good.

Motorola decided to equip this cellphone using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SM6115 chip, holding a high speed 2000 MHz Octa-Core processor with a large 4 GB RAM. This device comes with a 64 GB great internal storage memory and a slot for external memory cards, which allows the user to install hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games currently available without even thinking about filling the phone.

This cellphone is equipped with two cameras, a 48 mega-pixels back facing camera and an 8 MP front side camera. Its back facing camera has a f/1.7 aperture so it can shoot beautiful photos even in low lighting situations. It also films videos in Full HD 1920x1080 at 60 fps. Additionally, this cellphone's camera also includes time lapse video.

This phone comes with a 5000 mAh great non-replaceable battery providing the Motorola Defy (2021) a great battery life. An issue to take into account is that this phone's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it begins to get older, though with its 5000 mAh you will probably buy a new device before it happens.

The Motorola Defy (2021) provides wi-fi connection (which can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE-A) , a really fast connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a lower speed 4G type) and the fastest 3G internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This device uses a Nano SIM card for GSM services.

This phone also includes lots of useful characteristics such as Fingerprint unlock, Facial recognition biometrics, NFC, Bluetooth (provides communication with other devices and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Gyroscope.

No matter if you need a device for work, you love taking photos, will use it as a gamer phone or are looking for a phone to mostly use social networks, this phone is probably a very good choice for you.
