Short description Motorola Defy (2021)

This is a smartphone on Android 10 with a very fast and productive processor, with a huge touchscreen size, with a very cool camera that has 3 modules (48 MP Wide, 2 MP Macro, 2 MP Depth sensor), and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And Motorola Defy (2021) has such features: a slot for two SIM cards, cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there), dust and water protection.

Android version and market relevance

The company Motorola in June 2021 officially announced its new smartphone Motorola Defy (2021) in the series of mobile devices Motorola DEFY. In our subjective opinion, this year one of the important parameters for smartphones has become support for 5G networks, and this new model, unfortunately, it did not receive such an opportunity and will not be able to work in 5G networks. Therefore, if this is important to you, then go to our page in the catalog where all 5G smartphones are assembled.

“Out of the box” on the new smartphone installed Android 10, which did not receive any version updates. And besides, it is important to note immediately that the model Motorola Defy (2021) supports two SIM cards (view all smartphones with 2 sim cards in the catalog).

Screen, body and battery

In the case Motorola Defy (2021) is placed battery for 5 000 mAh and a very large IPS LCD touchscreen with a diagonal 6.5″. As you can see in the official photos, the body has a neat little cutout in the screen that houses the selfie camera. Thus, the manufacturer decided to increase the screen area without increasing the physical size of the smartphone body. In addition Motorola Defy (2021) still has dust and water protection. This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly describe the cameras in Motorola Defy (2021). The main camera got several modules (triple camera smartphones): 48 MP Wide + 2 MP Macro + 2 MP Depth sensor. Why, for example, has multiple lenses in a smartphone camera become the absolute norm on the market today? Because with these smartphones you can take beautiful portraits with blurred backgrounds (this is called the Bokeh effect). And manufacturers have also learned to make software enhancements to photography based on the analysis of frames from each lens. It seems that this is exactly the case when it is better to see once than read about it a hundred times. Therefore, we advise you to take a few shots yourself with the camera of this smartphone.

The front camera has one module: 8 MP . Do not say that this is very much, is in our catalog selfie smartphones, whose frontcamera will be an order of magnitude better. This model has a front camera as usual at the top of the screen, like 99.9% of all smartphones. But, if this makes you bored, then we can offer smartphones with pop-up front camera. In these models, the front camera is located inside the body and goes up only when you activate the front camera mode. It sounds interesting, but how convenient it is and how long this mechanism will work is not yet clear.

Processor and Internal Memory

Smartphone Motorola Defy (2021) received a 8-core processor Snapdragon 662 (11 nm), RAM 4 GB and built-in memory 64 GB. Also there is support for memory cards microSDXC up to  GB.

Price for Motorola Defy (2021): buy or not to buy?

So we told about not very expensive powerful smartphone Motorola Defy (2021) with a huge screen, chic main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a super-capacious battery.

All these characteristics in 2021 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in July 2021 at a price of $390. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy Motorola Defy (2021), be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if Motorola Defy (2021) is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.
