Motorola Backflip (AT&T) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
10 March 2010
  • 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.

Review: Motorola Backflip Smartphone

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's Backflip Android mobile phone boasts a "unique reverse-flip" design and features a touch-sensitive trackpad in an unconventional position.

  • Summary: Motorola scores points for trying to differentiate the Backflip from the wealth of other Android smartphones on the market, but its design isn't as practical as the company intended it to be.
  • Pros: Good build quality, large keyboard, MotoBlur software, reasonably inexpensive
  • Cons: MotoBlur can become cluttered, flip design isn't completely comfortable or practical, trackpad is more of a gimmick, no multitouch or Flash

Motorola Backflip

Airgamer
23 January 2011
  • 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
