Review: Motorola Backflip
As long as you've managed to keep the camera free of smudge, the Backflip takes OK pictures. You expect a 5 megapixel camera to perform better, but the truth of the matter is megapixels aren't everything. When caught without a dedicated imaging device, the Backflip will surely get the job done in most circumstances. You'll easily capture images worthy of sharing through your various social networks. Colors look about right, white balance is well-handled and images are mostly sharp. There was some slight haziness here and there.
Daytime performance outmatches night time performance, hands down. The flash is nice to have, but unless your subject is standing less than 4 feet away, it's worthless.

Video captured with the Backflip isn't bad. It's good enough that you can get away with posting it to YouTube and not get too many complaints about the quality. It will certainly suffice to snag the kids' soccer game or baseball game, or your friend's drunken antics at a wedding.
I still wish the video capturing software for Android were better. I am going to challenge the Android community, once again, to take advantage of the platform's openness and come up with something better than what's currently being offered.
