Motorola Flipout: Accidentally Backflipped!

 

After seeing how well Motorola's Milestone XT720 has performed, we expected something very similar with the Flipout. It certainly looked good at first glance, but later on collapsed in almost every aspect. To our disappointment, it turned out be very...

If you frowned while reading through the review, get ready for the final blow. The Flipout is priced at Rs. 15,999 which is terribly expensive for an outdated OS that cannot be upgraded, mediocre features and an otherwise standard smartphone. On paper,...

Motorola Flipout MB511 (black, unlocked)

 

It's always a risk to define a cell phone by its design; even the most unique and eye-catching handset must also be easy to use. Motorola tried to strike that balance with its new Flipout for AT&T, but ultimately the Android handset falls short. Like...

The Motorola Flipout has a roomy keyboard and a functional midrange feature set. Call quality is decent

The Motorola Flipout's display is too small for a touch-screen smartphone. The speakerphone is disappointing, the 3G connection is unreliable, and camera editing options are few

The Motorola Flipout exceeds on some levels, but its unique design doesn't do it any favors as a touch-screen smartphone.

Motorola Flipout review: Fair and square

 

Motorola is banking heavily on QWERTY droids. The Motorola Flipout does look a bit of a shocker but fits squarely into the lineup. It's tiny, yet offers better features than the Backflip, and social networking is its element.

Exceptionally compact QWERTY messenger ; Quad-band GSM and quad-band 3G support (7.2 Mbps HSDPA; 2Mbps HSUPA) ; 2.8" 256K-color 320x240 pixel capacitive touchscreen; multitouch support ; Android OS v2.1 with MOTOBLUR UI v1.5 ; Excellent social...

Poor display quality ; QVGA resolution limits the choice of apps ; Unacceptable camera issues from a retail test unit ; Uncomfortable grip for taking pictures ; 17mm thick is a bit much ; No smart and voice dialing ; microSD slot under the battery...

We had a great time reviewing the Motorola Flipout, we really did. Almost all apps have been spiked with social networking and the music player alone is good enough reason to consider ditching your dedicated MP3 player.

Motorola Flipout (AT&T)

 

The Flipout is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and dual-band HSPA 7.2 (850/1900 MHz) device, meaning that it hits 3G data speeds on AT&T's network here and 2G speeds overseas. It also features 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. Like many recent Motorola...

Very comfortable keyboard. Clear voice quality. Responsive performance

Low screen resolution. Short battery life. Somewhat buggy

The Flipout is a cure for the common Android device, but the oddball screen means it's not for power users.

Motorola FLIPOUT for AT&T Review

 

So far, AT&T customers have been exposed to a healthy dealing of mid-range Android powered handsets. For those interested in a sub $100 priced smartphone, the Motorola FLIPOUT will instantly come to view with its intriguing form factor and entry level...

Motorola FLIPOUT Review

 

Now, hot on Sony Ericsson's heels comes the quirkier still Motorola FLIPOUT. With a 2.8 inch capacitive touch-screen and a QWERTY physical keyboard underneath, the phone seems to compete most directly with the X10 mini Pro, a handset aimed at the...

Motorola FlipOut Review

 

For a phone retailing for about Rs. 14,500 the FlipOut does work well when it comes to grabbing attention. While the likes of the HTC Wildfire, LG Optimus One and the Dell XCD series offer full touchscreen experience, the Android powered Motorola...

The small for factor makes it a bit more convenient to use, Touchscreen as well as QWERTY combo works for individual preferences, Surprisingly comfortable QWERTY keypad

Battery life of just a day, Screen resolution of 320x240 results in washed out colors, Disappointing 3.15MP camera only, when almost everyone, including even the sibling- Motorola QUENCH XT5 offers a 5MP camera

Motorola Flipout Review by Taylor

 

What's Good: Small size, easily pocketed; decent physical keyboard; fast for a 720 MHz processor, no lag; 5-row physical QWERTY keyboard; friendly price tag for a smartphone at $79.99 with a two-year agreement; great social media integration. What's...

Small size, easily pocketed; decent physical keyboard; fast for a 720 MHz processor, no lag; 5-row physical QWERTY keyboard; friendly price tag for a smartphone at $79.99 with a two-year agreement; great social media integration. What's Bad: Almost...

A bit too small for some tasks; Android 2.1 instead of the current 2.2; MOTOBLUR is very obtrusive; display is a little pixellated and definitely low-end; poor battery life; on-screen keyboard is cramped; poor camera quality; signal was very sensitive...

The Motorola FLIPOUT is different than anything I'm used to, but it surprised me in quite a few ways. While it is assuredly a mid-range device, it offers a great web experience for such a small display, great social media connection, a nice physical...
