Motorola MOTOGO! Flip review

5.2/10 AVG.
RATING



5.2/10
Informr score
The Motorola MOTOGO! Flip currently has an Informr score of 5.2 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 9 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

Some people just want a basic phone. But others want a basic phone that’s got some style. If you’re among the latter group of people, then check out the Motorola MOTOGO! Flip.

Though not as sleek as the iconic Motorola RAZR V3, it’s still very pocketable at 7mm thin—when open—and 99 grams. It comes with a regular alphanumeric keyboard, a color screen on the inside, as well as a grayscale display that shows important notifications on the exterior shell.

If you don’t want or need your phone to be your main source of entertainment or tool for productivity apps, then the MOTOGO! Flip is surely worth a look.
