The Flipside looks a little boring head on. Black with silver trim, it's stocky any way you hold it. It's also sturdy. The trackpad is the only differnetiating element from many other messaging phones with QWERTY keyboards.
The 3-megapixel camera produces pictures that are pretty darn dull. Thankfully, a suite of editing options helps keep subject from looking like the walking dead.
There's a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack, a camera trigger, a power button, a Micro-USB charging post, and a volume rocker on the top and spines. The 32 GB memory card is behind the back cover. We like that the phone comes with 2GB preloaded, we just don't approve of the location.
The proportions on the Flipside's keyboard are great. However, the material is raspy and a bit rough over time.
The Flipside's keyboard is roomy without being overly wide.
