Review: Motorola i886

Camera

The i886's camera is a basic one. It will open with a long press of the dedicated key, or via the on-screen menus. It takes several seconds to open. There's no autofocus and no flash, so when you press the shutter button, it takes the picture almost right away. Once the image is captured, the i886 takes its sweet time saving the image and showing a preview. It seems like an eternity passes before it reverts to the actual camera application. If you're looking for fast action in your cameraphone, look elsewhere.

The tool set for adjusting the i886 is also minimalistic. Users can adjust the resolution, scene (type of light), and effect, but that's about it. Thankfully, these can all be altered by using the d-pad and don't require users to go fumbling through the camera settings menu.

Gallery

The i886's photo gallery is a simple grid. The appearance of the gallery app itself can't be adjusted, but you can make all sorts of edits to the photos themselves. Using the gallery tools, users can make fixes to color, brightness, and contrast, as well as rotate, flip, crop, and add effects. That's more editing options that many full-blown Android phones offer.
