A boost of brightness

The Motorola Electrify 2's 4.3-inch qHD (960x540-pixel) screen isn't as sharp as you'll see on competing devices. Using what Motorola calls ColorBoost technology, however, the Electrify 2's display gets very bright and showcases vivid colors.

Compact and pocket-friendly

Better widget access

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich provides easier access to widgets, now in the application tray. Unfortunately the Motorola Electrify 2 lacks the slick Circles widget found on the Atrix HD and Photon Q 4G LTE.
