Seems well made, Interesting design, Android on AT&T, Decent call quality, Good battery life, Nice big keyboard
Motoblur aggregates social networking updates, Good call quality, Wealth of available apps
An Android phone with a keyboard and solid features for a nice price. Unique design.
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. 5MP camera (with flash!)
Good keyboard. MotoBlur integrates e-mail and social networking well. Solid battery life.
Fresh design with a trackpad behind the display for navigating the phone; offers a 5-megapixel camera; full spectrum of wireless options.
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.
QWERTY keyboard and touch screen are exposed when phone is closed or not in use, Sometimes it is sluggish when sending a text message or email, Autocancels user out of programs when internet connection is slow, Poor quality of photos, Poor battery life co
Crashes/Errors often for some reason, Odd backflip style, Yahoo search?!, AT&T junk installed, Rather slow overall
Awkward design, Runs older version of Android, Flat keyboard, Lackluster AT&T services, No multitouch support
Battery life is never great with MOTOBLUR. Unique design either captivates or deters. AT&T bloatwarewill they never stop?!
Design renders it nearly unusable. Last year's specs. MotoBlur still running at Android 1.5. A boatload of bloatware.
Sluggish at times and spontaneously rebooted once during our review period; device is only running Android 1.5; small screen; keyboard's durability in question since it's exposed on the back.
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.

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...-

Motorola's new form factor is less than a revolution but still a rather clever design that makes for a versatile handset. It's just a pity that, for territories outside the US, it seems destined to run an antediluvian version of Android. ...65

The Backflip comes with a few design features that are first seen in this mobile phone and could very well be rolled out to Motorola's other upcoming handsets. The first of these design initiatives is in the keyboard, or rather the way it opens out...-

While Motorola tried with the Backflip, it simply isnt a viable option for AT&T customers. Unless theres a person that absolutely needs the Android OS and cant leave AT&T, theres no reason to buy this. For instance, the 8GB...-

Google’s flexible operating system for mobiles lets phone manufactures do some funky things with their devices, but you probably won’t find a quirkier Android handset than the Motorola Backflip. As its name hints, this smart phone has a...-
