The Bottom Line The Motorola Brute i680 isn't pretty or flashy, but it delivers on call quality and its design should withstand the elements. The Motorola Brute i686 can take a longer dunk in water, but is otherwise identical to the Brute i680. It's not the prettiest phone on the block, but it's incredibly durable with great call quality to boot.
