Review: Motorola Defy

The Motorola Defy comes with an improved music player, compared to the standard Android offering. Motorola calls it a “connected” music player, and that’s not an inaccurate description. In addition to a standard set of playback controls, the player also automatically searches the Web for song lyrics. The feature was far from perfect, and when I veered toward the more obscure songs in my collection, the player reported lyrics could not be found. But when I wanted to sing along with the Beatles or M.I.A., lyrics were readily available.

You can also use the location-based service, Blip.fm, to post your current track on a map, which also lets you see what other users in your area are listening to. The service is popular enough that I found users in my town posting their current tracks. Like the basic Android player, the Motorola Connected Music Player can also search YouTube for music videos associated with your songs.

There are no advanced playback controls on the player, not even a repeat function. There were also no sound enhancements available. But the robust Internet options might prove more interesting to the social crowd Motorola is targeting.
