The Motorola Defy XT is another single core 1 GHz powered android phone. Just like the LG’s recent launch, the LG Optimus L7 P705, Motorola is also making the same mistake. These handsets should have been launched a long time back.

The Defy XT not only comes with a single core processor but also runs on Android 2.3 which cannot be upgraded to Android 4.0. At least Motorola will not officially support it. Spice is also coming up with 1 GHz powered handsets; in fact brands like Karbonn A9 are already doing well.

The Defy XT sports a 3.7 inch (capacitive) touchscreen with 854 by 480 pixels resolution with 16 million colours. There is a 5 MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash and a front VGA camera. The camera comes with Geo tagging, image stabilizer and many other features along with an image editor.

This is a 3G phone with additional features like Wi-Fi, GPRS, EDGE, USB, GPS, Tethering supported (Wi-Fi and USB), Bluetooth , DLNA and audio jack. The Media player supports MP3, MP3, H.263/264 and WAV files. Plus a built in FM for live radio.

The phone is water / dust resistant, supports flash 10.2 and comes with Compass, Accelerometer and Proximate Sensor.

The Defy XT price in India is Rs. 16,000 with 1 year warranty.
Rs. 16,190 (FlipKart)

This phone again should have been launched a long time back. The features are good but the price is too high. Also you will have to do with the Android 2.3 OS as this phone will not be officially supported for a ICS upgrade. Just spend some more money and you will be able to find a better phone with a dual core processor.
