Excerpt: from the looks of the backflip, it had the potential to be a great phone for me, as it had a physical keyboard which i like. it also came with android version 1.x, which was fine. though the flipping is slightly useful, the phone itself is extremely slow when it comes to running apps or using the internet. for example one of the features of the phone is that it automatically rotates the screen based on how you're holding the phone.
Excerpt: Let's start out with the pros. This phone has a really cool and unique design, that often acts as a conversation starter. That's pretty neat. Okay, let's move on the cons. This phone is a phone, but not for above average users. People who want to take full advantage of their smart phone will easily be disapointed. Early on, the phone was fine. It texted, made calls, and checked facebook. But as I grew smartphone savvy, the phone did not keep up.
This phone would be totally awesome.... IF it worked.

Excerpt: This phone uses the Android OS, which, in my opinion, is the best OS out there. There are more really good apps than for the others and they are easy to find and use. The phone has great color definition on the touchscreen and promises to be the one phone you'll use nonstop. Which it would, if it worked. After having the phone for only 1 week I was so frustrated with being unable to answer calls or send texts that I turned it in.
Excerpt: i honestly am not pleased with the backflip. i have had to replace this phone twice so far and havent had it a year. i love the touchscreen technology. problem i have is that it tends to freeze up on me at times. i also have had a problem with it redialing a number and i havent touched it. i dont see the point of the keyboard in the back if its touchscreen.
Excerpt: I love this phone I just got it yesterday and I already forgot I used to have a blackberry I love the touch screen and the full keyboard and being able to see everything all on one page that was the one thing I was worried about but it's great and as long as you keep your keys locked while not using it I feel it helps save my battery.
Pros: Unique design, Smaller device compared to other android phones, Will last you a while if you take good care of it.
Cons: After about a year or so, the phone will start to show its age, especially if you got the 1.5 os of android, and then upgraded. Seemed like the processor couldn't handle the upgrade. Runs very sluggishly as a result.
Excerpt: I had my backflip for 8 months and it sucks. It always freezes, turns off when it wants to, looses battery when its charged, doesnt have sound, doesnt charge, takes random pictures, sends and recieves messages weeks later,freezes,doesnt call people, and there is nothing great about this phone.
