Motorola Defy review: Video

Video is disappointing. The maximum resolution is 640 x 480 which is paltry in these days of 720p shooters.

The 640 x 480 video is okay for showing on the handset, but you probably won't want to keep it in the family archive.

It's a shame when Motorola is pushing hard on HD video in other devices at the moment, such as in the Motorola XT720 or the the Milestone 2, but perhaps this phone is more about surviving the day to day dangers than taking fancy video.
