Expert review by:

Motorola Flipside (AT&T)

 

The Motorola Flipside has a trackpad, a good keyboard, and up to 32GB of expandable memory. In a nod to business professionals, it also supports corporate e-mail through Microsoft Exchange. We appreciate the camera's post-production editing options.

It's heavy and bulky, and the Flipside's microSD card is inconveniently placed behind the back cover. The Android smartphone is hobbled by poor call quality.

Despite its uninspired look and feel, the Motorola Flipside has a well-rounded feature set that balances a socializing agenda with corporate e-mail. That is, if you can look past the troublesome call quality.

Motorola Flipside (AT&T)

 

The Flipside is a quad-band EDGE (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) and dual-band HSDPA 7.2 (850/1900 MHz) device with 802.11b/g Wi-Fi. That means it hits AT&T's 3G network here in the US, albeit not at top speeds, and 2G networks overseas. The Flipside connected...

Excellent QWERTY keyboard. Solid construction. Stellar voice quality

So-so reception. Short battery life. Not the latest version of Android

The Motorola Flipside has a good QWERTY keyboard, but it needs better battery life and a newer version of the Android OS to be a leader.

Motorola FLIPSIDE Review

 

First it was the interesting BACKFLIP, then came the compact looking FLIPOUT, and now it seems as though Motorola has come full circle to finally manufacture a normal side sliding smartphone for AT&T with the Motorola FLIPSIDE MB508. Instead of falling...

Motorola FLIPSIDE

 

Sitting towards the lower end of Motorola's smartphone range, the FLIPSIDE sports a 3.1" 320 x 480 pixel display, a 3 megapixel camera, 3.5G support, WiFi, GPS and an FM radio, plus it comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.

Motorola FLIPSIDE

 

The Motorola FLIPSIDE is another of the seven Android phones that Motorola announced at CTIA 2010. It sports a 3.1 one inch touchscreen, a slide out QWERTY keyboard, and Android 2.1 with MOTOBLUR.

"READ THIS BEFORE YOU MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID!"

 

I have had a phone literally burst into flames in front of my very eyes. Generally, I have had bad luck with phones, but nothing compares to the monstrosity that is the Motorola Flipside. The Wifi is rudimentary, it doesn't download the app store, the...

It hasn't literally brought death upon me yet, I can still use my eyes, it hasn't single-handedly brought upon the "End time". That's about it

It never works when I need it to. It always glitches. I have to restart it multiple times a day to get it to work. As we speak, I have taken the battery out to send a text message. NOTHING WORKS AS ADVERTISED.

"Worst mistake of my life: Buying this phone"

 

The list of cons is endless. To start, when you make calls if you touch the phone with your cheek, it either hangs up the call, puts the phone on mute so the person you're talking to can't hear you, or puts the call on speaker. This phone is also...

The outer look of the phone. Nice speakers for playing music out loud. Phone charges pretty fast.

EVERYTHING!!

"Shame on Motorola for making such a crappy device"

 

It has all been said, here is a ncice review:Some of the problems are: there is no memory so you can't utilize the phone and the apps; when charging you can't use the phone to even check a text message; when talking on the phone, if your cheek hits the...

The display looks good. Too bad you can use any of the apps.

Everything. No memeory so you can't use any of the apps. Call quality is poor. Mosst expensive paper weight I ever bought.

Consumer review by:

"I regret ever buying this phone. Absolutely worthless."

 

In the first week I had it, it had a memory leak, had to root the phone and fix it on my own because AT&T refused to believe there was a problem.

It's an Android phone. Android is pretty awesome. Too bad this phone did a horrible job of implementing it.

Everything else.
