Review: Motorola Bravo

Bluetooth

The Bravo supports the now-standard mono and stereo Bluetooth stacks. I had no trouble pairing with either type of headset. Call quality through mono headsets was atrocious. Bluetooth amplified the problems I experienced with normal calls tenfold. Music playback wasn't much better. The sound dropped out entirely more often than I'd like, and the quality just wasn't there.

Clock

The Bravo displays a huge digital clock on the home screen when the lock/power button is pressed. You can easily see it from an arm's length (indoors as well as out). This clock can be adjusted to a smaller digital format, as well as analog. Of course, users can also choose to download their own clock skins from the Android Market.

GPS

The Bravo has Google Maps and AT&T Navigator both on board. Google Maps continues to be an excellent free tool for voice-guided navigation. It is my go-to GPS app. If you prefer AT&T Navigator and don't mind the $10 monthly fee, it also performs well. Both programs kept me on track from here to there.

The Bravo also has AT&T Maps and AT&T FamilyLocator, both of which make use of the GPS radio. I would rate AT&T's mapping software as sub-par. It is essentially the same as AT&T Navigator, but was extremely slow -- much slower than the Navigator app.
