Motorola Flipout review

 

The Motorola Flipout is a compact Moto handset with a twist (see our image, right). Now that's worth shouting about

Motorola Flipout review

 

Can a lower price tag flip this phone up the popularity charts?

Quirky design ; Connected music player ; Motoblur is a clever system ; Small overall size when closed ; Accessible microSD card slot

Motoblur is cramped in the small screen ; Camera is poor ; Android 2.1 unlikley to be upgraded ; Physical keyboard is only so-so ; Web browsing is painful

The Motorola Flipout is one for the young-uns, but their small hands might find the form factor tricky to cope with at times.

Motorola Flipout

 

Motorola puts a new spin on the slider phone with this Android smarphone.

Superb build quality, Great keyboard, Easy to use interface

Small, low res screen, Slowish processor, Poor camera, Intriguing but somewhat pointless form factor

Motorola Flipout review

 

The Flipout runs a newer version of Google Android than some of Motorola's other Android phones (the DEXT, Backflip and Quench). It uses the 2.1 version of Google's operating system, but Motorola hasn't announced whether the Flipout will be upgradeable...

Motorola has tried something different with the Flipout Android smartphone, but the end result is a clunky-feeling handset that is awkward to use. The Flipout is relatively cheap, but its display has a low resolution and an odd aspect ratio. There are...

Motorola FLIPOUT review

 

Motorola's range of Android handsets has included some bold designs. The Flipout's is certainly quirky, but in everyday use we found it to be practical and conveniently small. Despite appearances, it's no toy either: with Android 2.1 and some advanced...

The clever design means you get a great QWERTY keyboard in a tiny package, but the screen isn't great and its price doesn't match its size.

Motorola Flipout Review

 

The Motorola Flipout is an intriguing little phone that folds up to a tiny square when it's Qwerty keypad is tucked away. It runs on Android 2.1 and has a 3-megapixel camera. We took the Flipout out…

Motorola FlipOut review -

 

Tons of social networking features, great email, unique design, Android OS is user friendly

Too busy for all but the most hardcore social networker, pixelated display makes the phone feel low-rent, dismal camera

Motorola Flipout

 

Motorola's Flipout boasts a cool new form factor and Android goodness at an affordable price.

Interesting new form factor, price point, interchangeable covers.

Noticeable lag here and there, smallish display and poor battery life.

Motorola - Flipout

 

Motorola has experienced something of a resurrection recently as far as its mobile phones are concerned, with its support for Android and its Motoblur social networking technology helping it out of the doldrums. The Flipout ...

The price may be attractive, the design quirky and the physical keyboard good, but overall we aren't convinced that the Motorola Flipout is a success. Android needs a large screen, and Motorola's own Motoblur also benefits from lots of screen space....
