Review: Motorola i886
The i886 comes loaded with Opera Mini, not the Android browser. I was pleasantly surprised at the browser's performance. When it came to any sort of action or service requiring network access, the i886 was a nightmare. Browsing the web, thankfully, wasn't half bad in comparison. Opera Mini's compression engine did its job and made for a reasonably good mobile browsing experience for a phone such as the i886. Opera Mini takes some getting used to, but the latest version offers support for tabbed browsing, visual bookmarks, and session syncing with the desktop version of Opera if that's your thing.
The i886 lets users customize most items that you'd expect, but the faux Android OS adds a lot more flexibility. The i886 supports the same desktop shortcuts that any Android handset does, and this means the user can stick near anything they want on the three home screens. This is very handy.
