Review: Motorola i886
I didn't expect much from the i886's 2 megapixel camera, and it didn't deliver much. Most images displayed a lack of sharp focus, and many were saturated in grain. Even the most well-lit subjects failed to really pop or look good. Most users will be happy to share photos via MMS, but I'd think posting images captured with the i886 to Facebook, Flickr or Picasa would be a rare, rare thing.
The i886 can capture QVGA video at 15 frames per second. As with the camera, I didn't have high expectations, and the i886 didn't let me down. Video is stutter-y and full of grain. You'll see blockiness, waviness, and smearing as well. YouTube quality? No. MMS quality? Perhaps.

Samsung's latest semi-rugged smartphone for AT&T dials back the good looks of the Galaxy S7 in favor of a stronger, studier frame. The S7 Active is tough enough to take a tumble without the brick-like bulk of some fully rugged handsets.
