  • 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
  • Inaccurate keyboard, no proper dpad, nonMarket apps need not apply
  • 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
