Product Description -
Motorola MB526 Defy Unlocked Quad Band PDA Phone (Black)

Motorola are renowned for their innovations in design and the Motorola DEFY+ mb526 is no different. In 2004, Motorola unleashed the incredibly stylish RAZR onto the market and changed it forever. Following its release, this clamshell, flip-phone became the “best-selling clamshell phone in the world” and let to phone companies all over the world prioritising aesthetics.

In 2012, Motorola have shifted the focus of their innovation but remain innovative nonetheless. The design of the new DEFY+ does not stand out from the crowd in terms of aesthetics. From a distance, the DEFY + is sleek and attractive but not the eye catcher of some of its predecessors. When you look up close however, you will discover that this phone is a real gem of a product.

The first thing you notice is the little rubber coverings over the 3.5mm jack and the micro USB slot. There is a very good reason for this: the MB526 is dustproof and waterproof, as well as possessing a scratch-resistant screen.

Not satisfied with the accomplishment of being IP67 certified for outdoor use, the specifications in the DEFY+ belie the reasonable price tag. Unlock the phone and the 3.7 inch display powered by the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) system is crystal clear. The 512MB of RAM and 1GB of ROM mean it’s no slouch either. The camera is a very respectable, rear-facing 5.0MP and should be able to record 720p video at 30fps.

There is also a large 1700 mAh battery which is larger than many other smartphones, offering longer times between charges, with a range of up to a massive 384 hours of stand by.

The DEFY+ offers the ability to access more entertainment content with the acclaimed Connected Music Player and Connected Gallery. Applications have the benefit of a swift 1-GHz processor for speed and full Adobe Flash® support.

The DEFY Plus maintains the design of its predecessor but has a bolstered specification, which includes a 1GHz processor and Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Resistant to dust and water, the DEFY Plus has an IP67 protection rating. Corning Gorilla Glass also ensures that the 3.7" display is scratchproof, providing peace of mind when you're out and about with your phone. The DEFY Plus is the same size and weight as the original DEFY, but does come equipped with a higher capacity battery of 1700mAh.The 5 Megapixel camera is improved slightly as well, featuring auto focus, flash and digital zoom. The connectivity features of the DEFY Plus are as you would expect, with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 3G and 3.5mm audio jack all present. Internal storage weighs in at 2GB, but up to 32GB of storage is available via microSD expansion.
