Does you Defy have ICS or still on GB? If not ICS, it could be simply OS reading signal strength differently. ICS and JB are reading RSRP vs Froyo, GB reading RSSI (which is usually stronger number).
In case of CDMA/LTE phones, GB phones can show about 20dbm better strength than ICS phone for the equivalent signal. Not sure about GSM/HSPA+ phones though.
