Pros + Battery life has been excellent
+ Feels solid and protected
+ Sound quality and resolution quality are great
Cons - Can't uninstall and the fact AT&T won't allow non-Marketplace apps to be installed
Summary The Bravo is my first Smartphone although I used my wife's iPhone 3Gs extensively and tried all the models in the store before finally choosing this one. I am very happy with my decision! I have had it for a month now and have fully utilized its features.
The 4G models had just come out and I was tempted by the Atrix with the much larger screen, newer OS, etc. But I really wanted something that I could just drop in my pocket and not always be worried about bending or breaking when I sat down. The Bravo is a great size and although it is a bit bulkier after I paired it with the Otterbox Commuter case, it feels solid and protected so I can just grab and go.
I am pleased with the flexibility of Android (primarily why I didn't want to go the Apple/iTunes path), I am happy with the battery life, call quality, volume (I often have to turn it down!), etc. I will be shopping for a larger SD card though as it is easy to burn through the 2GB which comes packaged.
My only complaints are all for the AT&T apps that you can't uninstall and the fact AT&T won't allow non-Marketplace apps to be installed (amazon appstore please keep working on them to allow!!).
I would definitely recommend the Bravo if you are looking for a well rounded entry level (without any real compromises) Smartphone. Assuming you can catch it with the 2-year contract $50 price, I think you can't do better with AT&T's lineup to get your money's worth!

Pros Pros: Brilliant- beautiful display, Excellent call quality, Good battery life, Quick processor, and Speaker quality.
Cons Cons: Camera/video quality only ok and there is no camera flash.
Summary The Motorola Bravo is an excellent android smart phone and has many high end features. This phone's greatest strengths are a brilliant display, great call quality, and a quick processor. The phone is small in size and fits well in the hand, but has a large display. It was easy to set up corporate email and sync my calendar with Microsoft Outlook. MOTOBLUR is pretty cool and does a good job combining multiple email accounts and facebook. Camera/video quality is only ok and there is no flash; however, photo editing tools are good and can enhance photo quality. Other pros for this phone include: battery life, games, ease of texting, menus, speaker, Wi-Fi capable, downloadable apps, multitasking, touch screen, search entry, and volume level. This is a great phone!
"Easy Set - Up!!"on by alan60085
Pros I just got mine today to replace my aging & failing Moto Q9H. Getting is all set up with MotoBlur & my corporate email and such was a snap!!
Cons I was concerned about giving up my thumb keypad. The screen keyboard works well and is intuitive, but only time will tell how it does in hot or freezing temps. I wish I could make it sync with Itunes for my music.
Summary So far I like the phone. To be honest it is my first Android phone, so I have a lot to learn. It's been easy to learn to use. In time I'll report back on runtime and anything else I experience in the field. It's nice to have APS available. Pretty much zip for my now retired Q9H (Windows Mobile). There are a few I have been having Ap envy over, and now I can have them myself.
Pros call quality is 10x better on this than my old phone (Sony Ericcson Walkman) and the graphics are amazing
Cons sd card located behind the battery :( but other than that, its great
Summary got this to replace my old phone, a 3yr old sony walkman. Almost got the iphoe till i was told customer service for the phone gets charged to your account, which is retarded. Graphics are crystal clear, and texting is different but i've found it better to text sideways. As for the review saying the phone isnt built in with the swype method for texting, sorry but your wrong so please edit your review, i dont use the swype though cuz its kinda annoying, unfortunately, having a case for this phone kinda sucks as it muffles the music but it my just be my case in general, others may not have that problem. Highly recommend this phone over the iphone definitely.
Pros Easy to use for first time android user. User guide that came with the phone is clear and easy to follow. If those don't answer your questions, there are a TON of how-to's online that are very helpful.
Cons Battery life not as good as my old Samsung Mythic, but not terrible. I guess it depends on how much you are browsing on the net, which I only do at work with a wi-fi hook-up.
Summary Got this phone through Consumer Cellular and have now had it up and running for a week. Touchscreen is super sensitive but works great. Colors are bright. Camera is easy to use and pictures are good quality. Both out-going and incoming calls are clear and crisp both from my end and the receiver's end. Apps easy to download and response time seems quick enough for me. I'm not a Techie by any means, but I have found this phone remarkably easy to set-up and learn. I would highly reccommend this phone to first time android users, especially if you are over 50 and not interested in watching movies on your phone.
