Backflip size
      03/21/10 03:38 AM


Lisa, I've seen the Backflip at an at&t store, but wasn't able to hold it in candybar form, because it had a magnet stuck on the back to keep people from stealing it. You've held it in candy bar form, does the phone feel too small???

When I bought my Backflip I ask to see a phone so I could hold it and get a feel for it without it being tethered. The store I was at was very helpful and brought out a phone for me to look at.

It's hard to say whether it would feel too small to you. What are you used to? I am a pretty big guy and I like the form factor of the phone both open and closed. The volume rocker is a bit too small and not raised enough for my taste but in all other ways the phone feels solid.

The Backflip stacks up against the iPhone this way:

Dimension: BF, iPhone
width: 2.1, 2.4 inches
Height: 4.25, 4.5 inches
Thickness: .6, .5 inches
Weight: 4.7, 4.8 ounces

If you lay a standard size credit card on the Backflip (in the closed position) the credit is a bit (barely) wider than than the phone and 1/2 inch shorter.

The phone has a well built solid feel to it.

Hope this helps.
