With MOTOBLUR, updates from Facebook, MySpace,
I had a short list of "have to have" features:
Good signal - Check - I've experienced better signal than my Samsung windows mobile phone
Touch screen - Check - pretty large, given the small phone size
Keypad - Check - Larger keys than my last phone, great for texting and browsing!
Decent camera - Check - 5.0MP baby! With flash! Again, better than last phone
Multi-window Web browser - Check - Up to 4, plenty for me. Changed home page to Google and I'm good to go!
Apps - Check - Market has large assortment and I've downloaded several already. Enjoying bar code reader and Amazon apps.
SD Expansion - Check - up to 32GB
I'm new to the Android, but I like the intuitive interface, plus Motoblur and the weather, calendar and message widgets, but I'm sure I'm just scratching the surface. I'm not one to indiscriminately download software all over the web, so open access outside the Market is not a deal breaker for me. The one complaint I'd have is that I'd like to get rid of some of the preloaded AT&T apps that I won't use...or at least find a way to hide them, but I can work around that till I figure something out.
Bottom line, love the phone and I don't miss the things that others have complained about. I'm a geek, but apparently not as geeky as some. It cost me less than the windows mobile phone I had, plus has better features, it's lighter, faster AND IT'S NOT an iPhone, so it's all good!
Now that I've had it a few days, I have to say I'm very glad I got it. The only real issue I've had so far was in transferring my contacts. For some reason, when I tried to copy them all from my old SIM I only got one number per person and no other related data (birthdays, addresses, etc.). So I am still working on fixing that little issue, but the rest of the phone is great. I've installed a number of other applications with no problems, and for those of you concerned that you cannot install anything from outside of the Android market, do a little research and I'm sure you'll find a way around that issue. Personally, I haven't yet found a need for that.
As the the things I love, I'll start with five customizable home screens. Having the ability to make this look however I want with the shortcuts, widgets, and background I choose is awesome, and puts this heads above the iPhone in my opinion. I personally always hated having to scroll through the multiple screens on the iPhone just to find the one thing I wanted. The ability to have everything about a contact show up in one place no matter how many different accounts that person has and different ways I communicate with them is amazing and another way I feel this beats the iPhone hands-down, and the "happenings" widget that displays it all real-time is designed to make it all very intuitive. The ability to make this into a nice alarm clock by opening it at a 90 degree angle is very cool and came in quite handy when traveling this past weekend... especially the fact that not only did it show the time, but the current weather/temperature conditions as well. The integration with all my various accounts (social, email, photos, etc.) is so useful and seemless that I already can barely imagine how I lived without it. The 5 megapixel camera and integrated flash are nice and can take some amazing pictures outside (and inside if you can hold your hands steady), and the ability to directly upload those photos to picassa, facebook, emails, etc. makes this feature even better. Having the camera integrated into the keyboard seems a little odd at first, but makes taking self-portraits so much easier, and having it record your location from the integrated GPS while taking the photos is very nice! The flash is crazy bright though, and the response time is a bit slower that I'd like so it probably won't fully replace my digital camera, but as a phone, I never expected that it would. Battery life so far has been pretty good. I've been running numerous applications on it while testing it out this first week, but I would say the drain seems about right for that. I'm sure once the novelty wears off a bit and I stop messing with it every few minutes it will last much longer, but I would say the specs seem about right.
Overall, it's a strong product. The interface can be a bit laggy at times, but so can all the other phones out there when you're running as many applications simultaneously as I have been. The buttons and placement of things is taking some getting used to, but I have no real complaints over the design of the phone. If it weren't for the extra work I've had to put in to get my contacts copied from my old phone I'd have given a full 5 stars. Honestly though, if you're like me and have been waiting for a good alternative to the iPhone on AT&T that had actual buttons, this is a good choice. The Android OS is very user friendly and there are already lots of applications out there for you to try out.
I have had to contact support to send back the phone after an overheating incident yesterday has rendered the product completely non-functional. I am hoping this is an isolated incident, but it's very early in the release of the unit to tell for sure.
Even happier with this phone now than I was before! I have gotten used to using it and it is like second nature. The little touchpad is a life saver. (Discussed below...) A few other things I have noticed are:
1. that the phone is narrow enough to easily reach all areas of the screen with your thumb while holding the phone normally. On my old phone you had to either use two hands or wallow the phone around in your hand to get your thumb on everything. Though the screen is physically smaller on the Backflip, it is much easier to use and navigate on.
2. The phone and screen are very durable. Mine survived a serious drop of about 10 feet while I was on a ladder. (Yeah yeah. I know. I shouldn't have been using my phone while climbing on a ladder.) Anyway, I dropped the phone onto concrete. The plastic was scuffed up a bit but has had no detrimental effect on the phone.
3. I can play YouTube videos. Evidently iPhone (or the Safari browser) cannot.
So after 6 months I can say I am still very very happy with the Backflip. I will post another update once the Android software update rolls out.
I have now had the phone a few months and can still say that I am as pleased with this phone as I have been with anything I have ever bought. It has turned out to be a great smartphone. The apps store may have something to do with that. You can download video players, office tools, games, etc... Even some pretty decent E6B flight calculators! There are a couple of apps I suggest you download right off the bat. The first is Advanced Task Killer from Rechild, or another tool to manage apps. The apps killer lets you shut down apps without having to go to each one and close it down individually. While multi-tasking is great, you can end up with quite a few apps running in the background. Advanced Task Killer lets you manage them more efficiently than you would using the default tools. A good file manager also helps. OI File is a good one. Another good app is Save MMS, which lets you save photos attached to messages. There are also a number of good games and music players. Many of them very inexpensive or even free! Anyway, I liked the phone before, and I like it even better now. The only thing I can think of that needs improvement, is the voice dialing, (mentioned below).
I have to admit that this phone took a bit of getting used to. I have had it now about a month and couldn't be happier. My previous smart phone worked great as a phone and to text, but sucked at everything else. Anyway, the AT&T sales agent said this phone was targeted at the "online generation" with a lot of features for Facebook, twitter, email, etc. And it has all that. Motoblur is not just ad hype. It syncs it all. But not only is the Backflip great for all that stuff, it is a very capable business phone as well. It has completely replaced my old phone and my iPaq. And works better than both.
Anyway, here is my rating system. Great :D Good :) Average :| Poor :/ Bad :(
WEIGHT AND DURABILITY :)
The phone is fairly lightweight. Heavier than some other phones, but still easy enough to carry. It feels very well built and solid. Does not have that flimsy feel some other phones have. Nice and narrow. Fairly thin but a little thicker than some other texting phones.
BATTERY LIFE :)
Normally, I can go two days before charging. If I turn on the WiFi while at work, then I have to charge every night. I have never needed to charge the battery during the day. Motorola does not include a car charger, but it accepts micro-USB chargers which can be found inexpensively just about anywhere.
OS and SYNCING :)
The Backflip runs on Android. Completely different than Windows Mobile. It doesn't have anything like Windows ActiveSync, but you can use Google sync. After a little work I installed Google sync which works very well. Syncing occurs over the air so no cables to plug in. I also like being able to attach the phone as a USB storage device. When you plug your phone into a USB port you can choose to attach as USB or charge only. It disconnects the SIM card when used as a USB but it has come in handy a couple of times. The SIM automatically restarts when you unplug the USB cable. You have to buy AT&T's data plan, but the phone is WiFi capable, which speeds up internet browsing experience.
STORAGE: The phone accepts microSD cards. Mine came with a 2GB card included.
POWER ON AND SCREEN LOCK :)
The screen lock function is simple and works one handed. Press the power button, then tap on the unlock area. If you choose a security code, that also can be entered one handed as the numbers are large and easy to tap on. Unfolding the phone also turns it on.
Leave it folded and it works like most other touch...Read more
