Helio Kickflip


The software bugs are unfortunate, because this phone sure is pretty. It's a little heavy, at 4.5 ounces and 3.9 by 2 by 1 inches, but the hinge snaps open automatically with a firm touch, and it's tremendous fun to feel the kick of the screen flying...

Beautiful. Solid construction

Poor voice quality. No way to get photos off camera. HOT app disables phone function. Several other bugs

The Helio Kickflip isn't ready for retail sale yet. Wait until they fix the bugs.

I switched from Verizon Wireless to Helio last year and I don't regret it. The plan is awesome and the service(in New York State), though sometimes inconsistent, is powerful. As for the Kickflip itself...that is a different story. I switched a year...

The Kickflip is a very nice phone with many nice features. It is very small and compact and has a nice flipping feature like the Sidekick 3. My preferance would be the sidekick 3 over the kickflip because the sidekick has more features and a bigger...

I like the myspace feature and the 2 megapixel camera

Many unuseful features like the T.V. out port

Helio Kickflip


I love this phone. Bought it after returning the lackluster Cingular Sony Ericcson W300i. This phone puts the SE to shame.
