One of the best things about Motorola Nextel i880 is that it is loud and clear when making and receiving calls no matter how much the signal strength is. It is loud enough that you will hear the phone ringing even if you are in a crowed and noisy area. The camera performance is not quite good but it can take some decent shots under good lighting conditions. There is no dedicated camera button so you will have to flip the lid of the phone to take some photos. The shutter lag is just under a second which is standard but not too great. There is no flash available for photos and video light does not activate for photos. This is a great phone for basic needs, buy it today.
