Pros compact, beautiful screen, camera friendly with flash, bidirectional swivel, voice recording
Cons occasional slow response, buttons not very tactile
Summary The Kickflip is an awesome arsenal to the daily myspace mobile warrior. It's beautiful QVGA screen makes streaming video really jump out. The camera's got an LED flash, expandable memory, and even a macro lens to capture close-up shots. Occasionally, the application will stall or not be as responsive as I would like. Overall, the kickflip is awesome, and make you look like a rockstar! See other Helio reviews and info at heliofriends.com!
Pros Bi-flip design, 2.0 megapixel camera,
Cons 1 inch thick when closed.
Summary I switched from Verizon Wireless to Helio last year and I don't regret it. The plan is awesome and the service(in New York State), though sometimes inconsistent, is powerful. As for the Kickflip itself...that is a different story. I switched a year after I got it to the Helio Heat because I needed more features.I thought it looked great in the pictures on the internet, however, it is much bigger in reality. You can see the lump created by the Kickflip in your pocket for a mile (especially in jeans, where the pockets are tight). It has some great features like the addictive bi-flip design and the great camera, which can be used even when the phone is closed in landscape mode by holding down the camera button. The videos taken with the kickflip come out very pixely and they take up a lot of memory. The internet feature can only really be used with full bars, and it has a very limited list of sites that can be viewed completely (almost all sites are cut down to the bare minimum, so bare that you can't use them at all). So, if you are considering switching to Helio, get the Drift or the Heat because they are infinitely better than this 1 INCH THICK phone.
"I love my Kickflip"on by jamesreb
Pros 2MP cam, flip design, 3G
Cons No bluetooth
Summary I love this phone. Bought it after returning the lackluster Cingular Sony Ericcson W300i. This phone puts the SE to shame.
Great service with Helio (I noticed that Helio uses both Verizon and Sprint for coverage, woo hoo) Only wished it had Bluetooth and it'd be perfect. Its not a deal killer though. I can deal with a little wire. Besides, the included stereo headset works terrific.
I (heart) Helio.
Pros I like the myspace feature and the 2 megapixel camera.
Cons Many unuseful features like the T.V. out port.
Summary The Kickflip is a very nice phone with many nice features. It is very small and compact and has a nice flipping feature like the Sidekick 3. My preferance would be the sidekick 3 over the kickflip because the sidekick has more features and a bigger screen. Going back to the kickflip, i like the nice pearl white color over the hero's black. That is my review about Helios Kickflip.
Pros Has Internet, Great camera, and good call quality,
Cons Average battery life, needs more dealers
Summary This is one of the best phones i ever owned, G3 is fast, and is on sprint and version networks for making calls, also has messengers all u have to do is download them to the phone cnet has a biased review
