Good: Fun,awesome and convinient keyboard,nice sound and really helpful "adds"in the screens
Bad: Dissapointing Camera,Problems with Sd Card,Some apps couldn't be installed
Comment: Well,for such a nice price,about 140 Euros/80 Pounds,I'm really please with this cute phone!Despite the fact that I couldn't take awesomepics,they where quite satisfying,however not as good as in other phones.I really like the sound,it was loud enough.One bad thing about it was the Internet and the apps.I expected from a smartphone to run better some apps.Not all of them worked.Medium internet speed I can say,but some pages never load!It just closes Internet pages itself whenever it cannot load!I freaked out.
On the whole I believe that if you wantto make a difference,and you like chatting is good for you.But not for playing games or surfing the Net.That might be comfusing.
Good: Its fast and easy to work
Comment: I think the phone is really good and You can get wifi
Good: I love this lil phone, its unique and definately turns heads. :-p
Bad: Rare to get! and if you dont have a Data plan, Patience or if you get the first model range good luck!
Comment: I had to replace this handset 4 TIMES!!!! 4TIMES!...before realising that it was all about the lack of web connection...dont make the same mistake...ALSO i got it just as it got out and i was told by Motorola (Technicians) that there were many complaints against the earlier models!
*Crashing all the time, freezing, texts and calls not being connected (network was fine)
*Apps dont work
*Supermarket (for apps) would not work
*poor battery life....charge all night and can only use 2hrs!!!
Make sure u pick wisely what contract and network you are on so you get the best that this little beauty can give you.
I bought two, one got pick pocketed out mf my bag and im left with one that is working fine provided that i use a wireless connection
Good: Small, compact and fun to use.
Bad: Has to be opened to take a call.
Comment: I am really pleased with this phone, it has frozen a few times, but not much and not enough for me to ditch it. The screen is fine and the quality of sound via the music player is great, I have hooked it up to my Hi-Fi and it sounds very good indeed !!!! The battery life is the same as most smart phones, and the screen quality is very good in my opinion. I wouldn't swap this phone for the dreaded Iphone. I have it on a 24 month contract (£10.50 per month) and I have had it seven months with no problems. Why be a sheep and get a standard shaped mobile when you can be the envy of most with a smart and friendly square friend from Motorola !!!!! Only down side for me is the fact that you have to open the phone to make and receive calls, and it would have been a real asset if you didn't have to do that. All in all a cool and funky looking mobile !!!
Comment: i have had endless amounts of problems with this phone and after 5 handsets orange finally agreed to change the model for me so hoping the dext is a lot better. this phone constantly crashes, comes up with error messages, doesnt update emails, facebook etc, its just very poor and they try to tell you that no one else has had problems but thats not true if you do some research online i wish i had done that b4
Good: design wise, the flip aspect
Bad: constantly crashes (Android!) doesnt send and recieve texts and calls.
Comment: Don't buy one, I seriously regret it!
Good: the size, the weight, the looks, android, motorola, pretty much everything and the price
Bad: the battery life isnt great
Comment: i decided to get this phone after a superb deal from orange (Â£50 plus free headphones worth Â£20), at first i didnt like it but after a few days i loved it, i didnt like it at first because the battery life was just awfull, but after i had had a play with it deep in the settings there was a setting with battery life. it was in performance mode (but i changed it to battery saver and it doesnt seem to affect the performance atall, and after i had changed it too battery saver mode, the battery life is actually quite good. the sound quality on the phone is amazing for such a small phone, the camera is faultless in naturally light pics, the screen (although being put down on the reviews) is actually a lot better than expected. i love android, and the internet is really quick on 3g. the only slight issue i have had is that sometimes (not much) but when you use it a lot it has to stop to to think about what it is doing (juddering), i actually think that this is down to android because i have heard of similar problems from other android devices. the reason why i bought the phone was because of the keypad and it is simply excellent. the only thing that i wish it had was a flash on the camera. the phone is made really well and looks great. i highly recommend this phone to pretty much anyone, young or old. it is just brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):):):):):):)):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)):):):)):):):):):):):):
Comment: The Motorola Flipout is the worst phone I've ever used. The screen freezes, the buttons don't work and the Flipout now doesn't answer when you open it. My wife has one which works fine but I have just bought myself a Blackberry to replace it. Don't buy this phone!
Good: Easy to carry
Bad: Battery Life.
Comment: One thing I find very annoying, is that the power on button on the side is like the volume button on the other side, so on a couple of occasions, I have accidently MUTED it with the result of missing very important calls. Does anyone know if this volume button can be disabled?????
Comment: should i get this phone??? is is good for music????
