Although its 3-megapixel auto-focus camera might look on paper as being quaint in stature, its quality is nevertheless decent enough to capture memories. For the most part, images are average looking with its neutral looking details and color tones. However, images taken in low lighting appear to lose more clarity with its muddy details, but thankfully, colors still exhibit a neutral tone to them. Far from being stunning, the mediocre shots offered by the BRAVO are filled with enough spark to keep it in contention over a regular point and shoot.

One thing we find irritating about the BRAVO is its maximum video recording resolution of 352 x 288 pixels – which is something disheartening for a mid-range device. There is very little evidence of distinguishable detail, thanks partly by its pixelated visuals, but it manages to chug along at a frame rate of 27 frames per second. Despite its fluid movements, it does very little in tastefully moving attention away from its utterly poor quality.

Motorola Bravo sample video:




The handset relies on the stock Android music player, of which still doesn't radiate the presentation factor, but is still more than functional in playing tunes. As for audio quality from its speaker, it's more than deafening at the loudest setting, but there is a screechy tone to it which makes it a little unpleasant to tolerate at times.

Thanks to its sheer crisp high-resolution display, the Motorola BRAVO is a handset that's made for watching videos. With that, we managed to load a movie trailer encoded in MPEG-4 1280 x 720 resolution without much falter as it boasts some nice looking details that are complemented with some vibrant looking colors. For all your high-definition video needs, the BRAVO will easily win people over with its spot on fluid playback.

Sure it's not as good as the minimum 8GB of storage generally accompanying most high-end smartphones, but the 2GB microSD card preloaded on the BRAVO should quickly suffice the most basic needs of people. Still, you can replace it with cards up to 32GB in capacity.


Internet and Connectivity:

Much like other phones on AT&T's lineup, the Motorola BRAVO is a quad-band GSM (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and dual-band UMTS (850/1900 MHz) device – meaning that you can expect it to work in most locations around the world. Moreover, it comes included with Wi-Fi to get you situated with faster data connections in the event when cellular connections are sluggish. Finally, Bluetooth 2.1 is thrown in for good measure to enable a variety of wireless devices to connect to it.

In an attempt to ease the pain of lacking Android 2.2 Froyo, the Motorola BRAVO manages to offer support for Flash Lite which enables for some elements to load up. Although it's not exactly a faithful full blown desktop experience, there's much to take so openly with the web browsing experience on the handset. Pages load up in a timely manner, multi-gesture support for zooming is there, and smooth kinetic scrolling is evident to offer an acceptable experience that should appease most casual users out there.
