The following technical Motorola i860 review is based on an algorithm that takes a close look at a phone's specifications, it is in no way a hands-on review. It takes a close look at its good and not-as-good features to help you make an informed decision.
- Weight: Weighing with Included Battery Phone Dimensions (h x w x d) is extremely lightweight, and normally indicates a very small size as well. People with big fingers may dislike coping with a phone that is so small. (score: 16/20)
- Phone Book: It can store up to 600 phone book entries, which is quite good! (score: 20/20)
- Speakerphone: It has a speakerphone, which will prove useful in a car or in other situations. (score: 10/10)
- Push-to-Talk (PTT): The Motorola i860 supports Push-to-talk (PTT), a technology that allows you to instantly talk to other people owning a PTT phone on the same network, just by the push of a button, as with a walkie-talkie. (score: 7/7)
- Talk Time: A talk time of 165 minutes. I've seen better. (score: 8/20)
- Stand-by Time: A stand-by time of 65 hours. Not quite sufficient for most users, in my opinion. (score: 4/20)
- Wireless Data System: Not Bluetooth-enabled. (score: 0/7)
- Camera: The (unknown) built-in camera is minimal. Useful, but you won't make artwork with it. (score: 3/10)
Overall Score: 68
