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The Motorola Flipside has a good QWERTY keyboard, but it needs better battery life and a newer version of the Android OS to be a leader.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

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.

"Computer tards Don't overload mem!(&Free backup online)"

 

All of these reviews were from people who wanted HTC/ tablet & they don't know how to keep a computer clean. ~No pron unless youtube & clear your phone hardware occasionally. No more than 1-2 tabs open (Munu Button >Windows >X).

Gets a solid signal

~Its no supercomputer but does its job--unless you dont know how to "stop your cheek from clicking" (uh "LockButton?!")
