Motorola Defy Plus is an upgraded version of its predecessor the Motorola Defy. Motorola has made some improvements with the Defy Plus upgrading it to a 1 GHz processor with gingerbread OS. Those who have already used the Motorola Defy will find the Plus about 25% faster.

Many users were not happy with the Motorola Defy as it used to hang a lot and came loaded with Android 2.2 OS. The users were looking for a gingerbread update instead Motorola launched the Defy plus. Technically there is a lot of difference between the Motorola Defy and Defy Plus hence it does make sense to go in for the plus version.
