Motorola Backflip Review

Brighthand
9 May 2010
  • Summary: My feelings about the Motorola Backflip  are mixed. It has some nice features, like the Backtrack navigation pad, the nice keyboard, and a fairly good camera, but those good features are heavily outweighed by the slow processor and sub-par voice quality and signal strength. The Backflip isn't a bad device, but it isn't a great one either. There are plenty of better options out there, most notably the HTC Incredible offered by Verizon Wireless.
  • Pros: Cool touchpad navigator panel behind the screen, Nice Keyboard, Fairly good camera
  • Cons: Slow processor, Short battery life, Very poor call quality, Difficulties getting a strong enough signal to place calls or surf the Web

Motorola Backflip

LAPTOP Magazine

  • Summary: At $99, the price is right but too much else is wrong. Although we like the Motoblur interface and appreciate that Motorola is trying to push the form factor envelope, ultimately the Backflip is more confusing than exciting. The touchpad feels gimmicky, the camera is lacking, and the inability to download apps outside of Android Market (paired with the bloatware) is annoying.
  • Pros: Motoblur aggregates social networking updates, Good call quality, Wealth of available apps,
  • Cons: Awkward design, Runs older version of Android, Flat keyboard, Lackluster AT&T services, No multitouch support,

Motorola's Backflip Will Make You Come Unhinged

Wired
8 March 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s about time Motorola did something crazy. The Cliq was predictably sleek. The Droid was pragmatically chunky. But AT&T’s new Backflip is just … odd. At first glance the touchscreen channels the Cliq, but flipping it over reveals an exposed QWERTY keyboard. The phone opens like a reverse clamshell, and once you swing the keyboard around through 180 degrees, it’s facing you, resting beneath the screen.

Motorola Backflip review

PC Advisor

  • Summary: The Motorola Backflip is certainly a very different looking Google Android smartphone, boasting what the company calls a "unique reverse-flip" design.

Motorola Backflip

  • Summary: Auf dem ersten Blick wirkt bei diesem Smartphone zunächst alles vertraut, bis man bemerkt, dass die Rückseite eine Qwertz-Tastatur ist. Der Grund: Die Volltastatur lässt sich nach vor klappen, wodurch auch der Name Backflip erklärt wäre. Im offenen Zustand wird schließlich die zweite Besonderheit aktiv: Auf der Rückseite des Displays befindet sich ein Touchpad („Backtrack"), der beim Surfen im Internet nützlich ist.
  • Pros: Volltastatur/Touchscreen & Touchpad, Hochwertige Kamera, Gute Sprachqualität
  • Cons: Mäßige Rufbereitschaft, Recht schwer, Kein flüssiges Scrolling

Tastatur im Rücken: Android-Smartphone Motorola Backflip im Test

CNET
10 May 2010
  • Summary: Wer auf der Suche nach einem Android-Smartphone mit Tastatur ist, hat nicht viel Auswahl. Um so besser, das Motorola mit dem Backflip schon das zweite Gerät dieser Art auf dem Markt gebracht hat, und das Neue wirkt ganz schön flippig: Auf der Rückseite befindet sich das Tastenfeld, dass sich komplett mit einem Dreh unter das Display verlagert. Ob das in der Praxis überzeugt, zeigt der Test.
  • Pros: hervorragende Verarbeitung, Zugang zum Android Market, erstklassige Lautsprecher
  • Cons: inakzeptable Akkulaufzeit, langsame Reaktionen, unpraktische Tastatur
