Review: Motorola Bravo

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.


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.


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.
