Avoid this phone


I got this phone as an upgrade and my first smartphone. The dedicated keyboard was nice, but did not make up for the many shortcomings of the phone. The hardware is underpowered for the OS and software that Motorola loads on top, making using it a...

Motorola FlipSide MB508


It would be nice if there was a way to upgrade this phone to use ICS instead. Android OS for phones out does Windows or Apple OS phone any day.

Android OS, WI-Fi range, and plays MP4 videos at smooth frame rates. Price is good for its configuration. This phone have better reception in most areas that are considered dead zones than most other phones I used including HTC Tilt2 and I-Phone

Came with Android v2.1 (Eclair) and not ICS, but manually upgraded to v2.2 with no issues. Otherwise I would have given it 5 eggs instead of 4

Motorola MB508 - 2.1?? Android


Don't get this phone! It is an extreme battery hog. I was getting 3 hours or so of charge with minor use with what I think is an extended battery. Since I received the phone from my daughter, who upgraded, I thought possibly the problem was her...
