"Very happy with my choice for a first Smartphone!"5.0 starson by GeneRiley
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!
