Motorola Backflip review

 

Also featuring a touch-sensitive trackpad in an unconventional position, the handset scores points for trying to be different, but we feel the Motorola Backflip's design isn't as practical as the company intended to be.

Motorola scores points for trying to differentiate the Motorola Backflip from the wealth of other Android smartphones on the market, but its design isn't as practical as the company intended it to be.

AT&T Motorola BACKFLIP review

 

We review the quirky Motorola BACKFLIP, AT&T's first Android-powered smartphone

Odd form factor is fun to show off and confuse people with ; Magic sub-$100 price point ; MOTOBLUR is great for social networking addicts

Odd form factor makes excessive wear an inevitability ; Touch pad is confusing ; Old version of Android needs to be updated

Motorola made an obvious attempt to differentiate the BACKFLIP from similar smartphones by reinterpreting the landscape clamshell form factor. It succeeded, though the cost was a bit too great. Flip phones flip closed so that the screen and keypad are...

Motorola Backflip Android smartphone

 

Motorola's aptly named Backflip is certainly a very different looking Android smartphone, boasting what the company calls a "unique reverse-flip" desi...

Good build quality, large keyboard, MotoBlur software, reasonably inexpensive

MotoBlur can become cluttered, flip design isn't completely comfortable or practical, trackpad is more of a gimmick, no multitouch or Flash

Motorola BACKFLIP review: Back and forth

 

Android elders must be staring at this one in disbelief. Looking down at it for all we know, measuring it up. What about the BACKFLIP? We guess it's exactly the kind of gadget to stare back, humble but defiant. Android was a life...

Unique form factor and sturdy build quality ; Quad-band GSM and quad-band 3G support (7.2 Mbps HSDPA) ; 3.1" 256K-color 320x480 pixel capacitive touchscreen ; Android OS v1.5 (upgradeable to later versions) with MOTOBLUR UI and Live Widgets ; Folding...

Poor sunlight legibility ; No multi-touch ; One-finger zoom works only on the BACKTRACK touchpad ; No smart and voice dialing ; Limited camera features, lens on the QWERTY keyboard ; No free GPS navigation solution ; No Flash support for the web...

Android was a life-saving blood transfusion for Motorola. Not only did the MILESTONE put them back on the map – it gave them a license to experiment. They didn’t think twice to take it. So here we are, watching the BACKFLIP do the robot dance. This one...

Review: Motorola Backflip Smartphone

 

Despite some of forward thinking hardware, Moto's Backflip is hampered by a horrid Android skin.

Creative design balances style and function. MicroSD port lets you pack it full of tunes. Supports Android Marketplace for app downloads. QWERTY keys are large, easy to use. Beefy hinge keeps the phone from swinging around wildly. 5-MP camera (with...

One of the weakest Android offerings to date. Replaces Android’s Google search with Yahoo. Underpowered and responds at a glacial pace while multitasking. Filled with AT&T-branded bloatware. Flimsy battery door. Screen is too small for its icon-heavy UI

Motorola Backflip (AT&T)

 

AT&T's first Android phone, the Motorola Backflip, is full of major errors from everybody involved.

Good keyboard. MotoBlur integrates e-mail and social networking well. Solid battery life.

Design renders it nearly unusable. Last year's specs. MotoBlur still running at Android 1.5. A boatload of bloatware.

Media and Conclusions A combination of the Backflip's underpowered hardware and AT&T's hideous software makes the Backflip a frustrating media phone. Music plays fine, though there's no included syncing software (all that bloatware and no syncing...

Motorola Backflip - platinum silver (AT&T) review

 

We can't say this was a complete surprise , but AT&T made it official in February and introduced the Motorola Backflip as its first Google Android device. The Backflip made its grand debut at CES 2010 , where we awarded the smartphone with our Best of...

The Motorola Backflip features a fresh design with a trackpad behind the display for navigating the phone. The Android device also offers a 5-megapixel camera, extra AT&T services, and the full spectrum of wireless options.

The Backflip is sluggish at times and spontaneously rebooted once during our review period. The smartphone is only running Android 1.5. Screen size is a bit small, and we worry about the keyboard's durability since it's exposed on the back.

As AT&T's first Android phone, the Motorola Backflip offers a unique design but it's rather lackluster in the features and performance department. It's a decent choice if you're upgrading from a feature phone, but anyone looking for speed and power...

Motorola Backflip with MotoBlur

 

AT&T's first Android smartphone, the Motorola Backflip, is unlike other Android cell phones currently available. Yes, it runs the Google Android 1.5 operating system and has WiFi like many other models, but the real difference is the cell phone's...

Motorola BACKFLIP

 

The Motorola BACKFLIP, which combines the social saviness and personalization of MOTOBLUR with the multitasking performance of a smart phone.

The Motorola BackFlip has an RRP of RM1699, but we only recommend the device to the text-heavy or social networking crowd. While the phone does come with an interesting design, we have trouble looking past its dated Android UI and the lack of...
