Description

Thanks to the physical QWERTY keyboard oriented in portrait mode, the Motorola DEFY PRO has a strong resemblance to a BlackBerry model, but adds IP67 certification which means it is resistant to spills and dust. The Motorola DEFY PRO offers a 2.7 inch touchscreen made from Gorilla Glass and is built to take all the abuse that someone with an active lifestyle heaps upon his smartphone. Speaking of active lifestyles, the Motorola DEFY PRO has a special dashboard that helps you track specific outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and a daily workout. There is both a 5MP rear-facing camera and a VGA shooter on front for self-portraits and video chat. Android 2.3 is installed.

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 214 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.

Works best in clear weather. A-GPS - A-GPS stands for Assisted GPS and is the industry standard for positioning and navigation. “Assisted” means that it can use local wireless networks, in addition to satellites, for quicker and more precise localization. GLONASS - GLONASS is a global positioning system, developed by the Russian Federation. It’s very similar to GPS, but isn’t so popular in cell phones.
