Motorola i890 (Sprint)


The Motorola i890 offers Nextel Direct Connect customers clear voice quality and a solid flip design.

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

Poor multimedia prowess. Blurry camera.

Apps, Camera, and Conclusions Move past the i890's style and sound quality, and you end up with a fairly standard low-end flip phone. The main menu is a nine-icon grid that responded slowly to key presses. The GPS chip hooks into Nextel's various...

Motorola i890 - black (Sprint) review: Motorola i890 - black (Sprint)


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 Cell Phone Review


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 ...

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 – 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.
