Motorola i890 (black, Sprint)

 

Motorola's i890 isn't your typical Nextel phone. It's not packed in rubber; instead, it casts a trim shadow and is actually a bit stylish. Sure, it's a lot like Sprint's earlier Motorola Razr2--or more recently Nextel's Motorola i9--but for what it...

The Motorola i890 is slicker than most Nextel phones. It offers the carrier's signature features and it's a good performer

The Motorola i890 camera has average photo quality and its camcorder has few editing options. You have to remove the battery cover to access the memory card slot

The Motorola i890 isn't the best camera phone, but it offers the usual Nextel goodies in a slick design.

Motorola i890

 

Inside, the 2.2-inch, 240-by-320-pixel LCD was sharp and moderately bright, though UI graphics looked five years old. Dialing numbers was a cinch on the recessed keypad, thanks to the large numeric keys. The big five-way control pad and function...

Stylish for a Nextel. Solid build quality. Clear voice calls. Booming speakerphone

Poor multimedia prowess. Blurry camera

The Motorola i890 is exactly as advertised: a quality push-to-talk flip phone with few extra frills.

Stylish push-to-talk device delivers on basics

 

The Motorola i890 has a stylish handset that strays from the usual Nextel form factor, which is typically more rugged than sleek. According to reviews, the flip-style i890 delivers solid call quality in a push-to-talk device, but offers little...

Stylish design and solid build, sharp LCD screen, crisp voice quality

Mediocre photo quality, few multimedia features, proprietary headset jack

Aaron's Motorola i890 review | PhoneDog

 

Overview What's Good : Nice design for a Nextel device, along with good call quality. What's Bad : Camera is average, and battery life isn't the greatest. The Verdict : The i890 is a nice mid-range iDEN handset, but if you're on the...

Nice design for a Nextel device, along with good call quality

Camera is average, and battery life isn't the greatest

The i890 is a nice mid-range iDEN handset, but if you're on the job using Direct Connect all day, carry a second battery.

Motorola i890 for Sprint

 

The Motorola i890 is a standard flip phone for Sprint subscribers. The phone is not the most high-end communication device on the market, but those seeking simplicity with some added features should enjoy it. The i890 is available for $129.99 after...

The i890's phone book can hold up to 600 contacts. For each contact you can input several phone numbers, email addresses, and other data. You can also sort contacts into different groups for better organization and allocate a photo and a ringtone to...

Motorola i890 – attractive iDEN handset for Sprint

 

The Motorola i890 for Sprint Nextel is much like the previous Motorola i9 and Motorola Razr2. The i890 does not have a rubberized packing, but instead it is a bit stylish and throws a trim shadow. It costs $129.99 with two-year Sprint contract after a...

Slicker than most of the Nextel phones; good performer; functional feature set including GPS, Bluetooth, 2-megapixel camera, and micro-SD card slot

Average captured video quality and few editing options for video recording

The Motorola i890 is an attractive iDEN handset, but its captured picture quality is average. It is not tough and sturdy like its predecessor.
