Review: Motorola Bravo
The Bravo is an unassuming Android smartphone that has a fantastic screen, but run-of-the-mill features. Signal performance was solid, but data speeds, call quality and battery life (i.e., the basics) were not up to snuff.
The Bravo does a fine job of keeping people connected with Motorola's Motoblur software on board. Email, IM, SMS/MMS and social networking are all handled with ease. The thousands of Android widgets available don't hurt, either.
The media player isn't unique, but it works well and Android leaves you with plenty of options. The same is mostly true other media features. The camera software and gallery software are very good, though the camera and camcorder only perform so-so.

For first-time smartphone buyers, the Bravo offers enough to entice, but it clearly doesn't match the performance of high-end hardware. I am sure for plenty of buyers, the Bravo will be something to cheer about.
