However the official launch of Motorola Milestone 2 in India will be soon in next week. Since the Motorola Milestone 2 will be priced at Rs. 20,999 INR it is expected that the Motorola Defy’s price will surely fall and hence it will drop in the margin on 15k phones.

Comparing Motorola Defy with the Milestone 2 here is what we have concluded:

Milestone 2 and Defy are nearly priced same in India but comparing the specifications we find Milestone 2 surely has got better performance.

Motorola Defy gets performance lag as compared to Milestone 2 due to 800MHz processor where as Milestone 2 has got 1GHz processor. Its even predicted that the current version of Android on Milestone 2 will surely get the Gingerbread update while Defy will only be reaching upto Froyo.

There is not much physical change in both the phones except the Sliding qwerty as both the phones have same screen size the dimensions are also equal.
