  • Summary: This is not my first Backflip. It has not lasted as long as my first one. It may have a short or something. I wonder if it is refurbished rather than new.

A big deception

Auri, Amazon

  • Summary: I am able to talk, and after going trough a lot of trouble I could finely instal the basic apps. Apart from that the phone did not meet the expectation. It turns on an off without just by itself. It is too slow. It takes too long to turn on.

  • Summary: I use AT&T so it was no big deal for me, however it may be for others...
  • Pros: Works great on AT&T 3G, came already upgraded to Android 2.1.
  • Cons: Had to take it to an AT&T store to get it working. This phone is indeed LOCKED TO AT&T! SHAME ON NEWEGG FOR FALSE ADVERTISING!!

  • Summary: This was the very first Android phone on AT&T and I believe it was intentionally crippled in the CPU and RAM departments as to not show up the then exclusive to AT&T iPhone models.
  • Pros: Camera takes surprisingly good pics in adequate light. OK support in the modder community, official Cyanogenmod 7 port will give you Gingerbread 2.3 once you root it and get past the bootloader. Good keyboard and unique form factor. LED flash makes a great flashlight that will almost hurt you if ...
  • Cons: Official 2.1 update lacks multitouch, so no pinch-to-zoom and goodies like that. Slow CPU and limited RAM. Battery life isn't that great, you MIGHT make it through a work day with 3G and data on, no way you'll make it with WIFI, GPS or Bluetooth enabled. You might get a full day or two if you for...

WAS a steaming heap of dung, but a root and flash changed it completely!

  • Summary: Every negative thing written about the Backflip was true, when it was running Motoblur software on top of a crippled and outdated Android 1.5 OS. It took a lot of concentration and digging on my part, but with the help of several web forums and tutorials, I eventually figured out the proper steps to...

If you are stuck with this phone, check this post out.

  • Summary: I was the same way with this phone, until I changed out the software I thought it was a pile of crap. Only thing this phone is good for is texting and sometimes internet browsing. The keyboard is pretty good, probably the best feature of this phone.

Motorola MB300 Backflip

psion6, Amazon
29 April 2012
  • Summary: Interface is not intuitive and not easy to use especially if you are new to Android touch screen phones. Photo and video will not function without micro SD card. Motoblur must be set up to use all of this smartphones features. Scrolling is very sensitive and requires patience to master.

  • Summary: Unplug the charger from the phone first, not the wall. If you unplug it from the wall, It will cause the battery to discharge super fast(gets rather hot also). If it wasn't so slow, it would be an awesome phone.
  • Pros: -Android OS -I like the keyboard -All the amenities of a smart phone...wifi, email, headphone jack, camera... -microSD slot -message indicator light
  • Cons: -Rather slow -Takes a long time for camera to pop up -Have issues hearing people on skype(assuming its a speed issue). -navigation can sometimes hang for a couple seconds. -Only goes up to Adroid 2.1 -Every once in a while it will randomly restart(like once a month).I think its wifi related, and ...
