Review: Motorola Bravo
The Bravo has a 3 megapixel camera with autofocus, but no flash. I had mixed results with it. Sometimes it captured outdoor scenes perfectly, with the right white balance, colors, and focus. More often than not, however, the focus was soft, leaving fuzzy patches on images here and there. It was almost as if the Bravo had a depth-of-field problem. Brightly lit scenes nearly always blew out the sensor and the resulting images lost gobs of details. Indoor shots were softer still, with a lot more grain and noise in the resulting images.
The Bravo's camera isn't terrible, but it isn't great, either. Would I share these photos? Sure, some will certainly be MMS-worthy, and some might even be Facebook worthy.

As with the camera, video results are inconsistent. Most often, movement was blurred, focus was soft, and bright spots were blown out. Occasionally, the Bravo managed to get everything right, but only in absolutely perfect lighting situations. I'd share this video via MMS, but not on YouTube.
