Motorola Backflip from AT&TMy 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.

If you’re in the market for a new Android device, and you’re not absolutely committed to AT&T Wireless, you can very likely find something that better suits your needs than the Motorola Backflip.


  • Cool touchpad navigator panel behind the screen
  • Nice Keyboard
  • Fairly good camera


  • Slow processor
  • Short battery life
  • Very poor call quality
  • Difficulties getting a strong enough signal to place calls or surf the Web
