Performance:

Despite the comparatively weak processor Texas Instruments OMAP 850, running at 195 MHz, Smartflip’s work is remarkably stable and fast and remains so even with a number of loaded applications in the RAM.

We were exceptionally pleased by its performance as a telephone – it has quite a strong signal in spite of the built-in antenna and it did quite well and exceeded the norm. Though it did not achieve the level of the leading phones like Blackberry Pearl, it still can be considered very reliable in areas with weak signal.

During conversation it is also up-to-standard – the other side can hear you very well, with sufficient sound volume and clearly, without any noise at that. The sound of the voice is realistic and with a rich key. You hear a bit more low frequency than in reality, but it is clear and distinct – sound volume is above average which makes the phone perfectly usable even in very noisy environments.


Conclusion:

Smartflip is definitely a telephone that does not disappoint its users: it has a good design and a solid surface, which is pleasant to touch, revealing its high class. Apart from being a multi-functional device (thanks to its operating system), it has a very good performance as a phone – it works fast, strong signal reception, and the sound quality is high – the phone easily copes with its main obligation.
