Look Elsewhere

 

Just purchased because I wanted a keyboard. Should have gotten an iPhone.

Keyboard ; Inexpensive

VERY Sluggish ; Reboots on its own (loose battery) ; See all the other reviews - they are all spot on

Waste

 

Sucks.Feel ripped off

In the beginning it seemed pretty cool.Os ran ok, although slow.The idea of the keyboard instead of having to use tiny touchscreen was what i went for

Slow when compared to other smartphones.After the upgrade to 2.1 there was nothing but trouble and no way back.I didnt want to go along with the millions of zombies that get iphones but the truth is that the backflip can't even come close to an iphone...

horrible phone

 

Underpowered and cheap, not worth it. I have replaced mine with the Atrix. That is an epic phone of epic proportions. side note, any phone that crashes answering phone calls belongs in the garbage, no matter how many features it is, it isn't a phone...

Ok so, when it released in March 2010 it was the first android phone offered by at&t ; the backflip style screen and the keyboard is awesome

It isn't supported anymore by Motorola, meaning you won't get any more updates ; It isn't even running the current OS. It's running 2.1B, and it should have came with the phone ; It is clunky and slow and extremely frustrating to deal with when the...

Good Entry-level Smartphone

 

If you're desperate for a smart phone and are stuck on AT&T and for some reason can't get a nice upgrade to something like an EVO or HTC or don't care about power, then this phone will do nicely. If you want to be lightning fast, play all the latest...

I bought this phone when it was the only Droid OS smart phone offered by AT&T because I desperately wanted one and didn't want to dabble in Apple products. The price made it an interesting opportunity, since it was free. It comes with the standard of...

The phone is incredibly slow, it's kernel still can't support most of the fun apps that you can get such as Wireless tethering (albeit it requires voiding warrenties and can brick your phone) and for the longest time was on 1.5, which couldn't support...

SO SLOW!

 

Great phone if your employer gets it for you, but personally I'd spend a bit more to get a real Android phone. My wife has 1st-gen Droid, and it rocks compared to the Backflip.

Upgradeable to current Android OS, which has Voice Search, free Google Maps Navigator (GPS), and improved email handling. All my contacts, email and calander events sync's perfectly with Corporate Exchange Server (Outlook) via free Motoblur

Slow! Almost unbearable. Horrid battery life

Motorola BACKFLIP MB300 Black 3G Unlocked GSM Smart Phone with Touch Screen & Full QWERTY Keyboard

 

This was my first "real" smartphone purchase, and I did the research. If you go with a different model, just be sure it runs Android...it's amazing.

No learning curve, a usable physical QWERTY along with a touchscreen option, good audio, a jack for any 1/8" headphone plug, defaults to wi-fi (saves on data charges), good reception/clarity, runs the Android OS with TONS of free useful apps...I could...

It wasn't free, but was only 50 bucks through ATT

good case

 

I got the case for my 15 year old son - just in "case" he drops it lolthe case fits really well but because of the way the case fits the space bar is a little difficult - but in looking at all cases it would be a problem with any backflip...

Consumer review by:

Nice but not what I thought...

 

This case isn't the flexible type that I expected. It's a good fit and a great lime green color but I was expecting something more like silicone. My mistake, but if you're looking for a snappy non-slippery case it fits the bill. Good price too.

Poor Quality

 

I recently purchased this protective case for the Moto Backflip. I chose the dark blue color. The case fits very well and offers more protection for the phone, however, about a fourth of the neon like blue finish has flaked off leaving an underlying...
