Motorola i886 ( Sprint)


The Motorola i886 has an interface identical to that of Android, which makes navigation easy and intuitive. It has a rugged and durable design, a great keyboard, and a decent feature set that includes corporate e-mail support and Opera Mini. Call...

Some people might be thrown off by the Android user interface because the i886 is actually not a smartphone. Photo quality is average at best, and the multimedia offerings are pretty basic.

Don't be tricked into believing the Motorola i886 is an Android smartphone; it's not, but it is a very functional Nextel messaging phone with Direct Connect and fantastic call quality.

Motorola i886 (Sprint)


The Motorola i886 is a dual-band iDEN (800/1900 MHz) device that works on Sprint's push-to-talk Nextel network. There's no Wi-Fi, and beware: Internet access over iDen is extremely slow. Voice quality was very good, with a warm, full tone in the...

Solid build quality. Excellent reception. Booming speakerphone. Powerful, easy-to-use, Android-based OS

Buggy. Poor camera. No voice dialing over Bluetooth. Relatively short standby time

The push-to-talk Motorola i886 takes most of what makes Android phones great and packages it all in a rugged, easy-to-use messaging phone.

Motorola i886 Review


Nextel is a bit of a time capsule for the cellular industry. The lineup is comprised mostly of flip phones with mediocre specifications, and their signature feature- Direct Connect- is dying a slow death. Sprint has infused considerable cash into the...

Review: Motorola i886


Motorola's i886 runs on Sprint's iDEN network and offers both a physical QWERTY keyboard and a semi-rugged design. There's also the Android-like operating system to make things interesting.

Motorola i886 Review: Tough Android Feature Phone for the Outdoors


The Motorola i886 sounds like a fairly typical feature phone, but have a look at the user interface and you'll see that it offers something a little different. Read the full Motorola i886 review to discover more details about the design, the...

If you are in the market for a tough wee phone with good messaging and call performance, then the Motorola i886 could be for you. It is a solid device with a reasonably good set of features for the price bracket. It would be nice to have Wi-Fi and more...

Motorola i886


The Motorola i886 looks to be a new iDEN Android phone with a slide sliding full QWERTY keyboard plus a numerical keyboard on the front of the phone. There is very little known about this phone as of now, so make sure to keep checking back to...

"Electronic JUNK"




Worst phone on the market, after 6 weeks it started ringing and no button would answer it, had to take the battery out to get it to stop. Best Buy wouldn't take it back because it took more than 30 days to screw up. They said send it to the

My first Nextel and (faux) Android Phone.


I really do like this phone. This is my first experience with the iDen network and the reception at least in my town is phenomenal. Half of my life at both my job and my workshop at home is spent in a basement and this phone has no problems finding a...

Built like a tank. Excellent reception

The buttons for both the keypad and sliding keyboard are a little stiff and typing is a little more difficult than I would like
