Review: Helio Kickflip
The Kickflip is a solid piece of hardware. With excellent reception, a good screen, and everything you need to make a phone good, any user who wants a cool phone would be happy with it. Our complaints about it are strictly software related, and none of them are deal killers. The technology obsessed people who Helio sees as their type of users have put up with much worse just to get their hands on a cool gadget. The phone is stable and usable, which is a great start for the company's first effort. Helio has told us they are working on small updates to this software version to improve certain experiences, and have hinted they have bigger improvements up their sleeve later on down the line.
