Motorola Cliq XT - silver (T-Mobile)

 

The Motorola Cliq XT is a nice alternative to the original Cliq, offering a sleeker design and enhanced multimedia capabilities.

The Motorola Cliq XT offers a revamped media player with well-integrated community and discovery features. The 5-megapixel camera takes excellent pictures, and call quality is great. The smartphone has 3G and Wi-Fi as well as an HTML Webkit browser...

The smartphone runs Android 1.5. Screen size is a bit small. There's some occasional sluggishness. Pinch-to-zoom gesture doesn't work in Google Maps

Motorola Cliq XT

 

During the course of this review, we'll be discussing varying advanced aspects of the Motorola Cliq XT from T-Mobile, such its social networked music player, its Swype texting capability, its iPhone-like pinch-and-zoom photo gallery capabilities, and...

Motoblur aggregates social network, texting and e-email accounts, music player and address book ; Google Android OS v1.5 ; 5-megapixel camera with flash ; Anti-smudge screen reduces reflectivity

Motoblur bubbles cover home screens ; Poor video recorder ; Back battery cover difficult to remove

Motorola’s Cliq XT forgoes a keyboard of the first-generation Cliq for a smaller, lighter design, but preserves the excellent Motoblur interface for social networking devotees.

Motorola Cliq XT (T-Mobile) Review

 

T-Mobile's Cliq XT is a nice follow-up to the Cliq and includes lots of improvements, but we found ourselves missing the physical keyboard. While this smart phone is certainly usable, heavy texters and those who post constant social networking updates...

Motorola Cliq XT Phone

 

Nice social networking and multimedia features ; Very comfortable to hold and use

No full QWERTY keyboard ; Some screen stutter during menu scrolling

The Motorola Cliq XT has superb multimedia and social networking features, but its performance isn't the strongest.

Motorola CLIQ XT (T-Mobile)

 

The Motorola CLIQ XT is a decent Android smartphone with some great touches, such as a music player that heads out to the Internet to summon lyrics and album art. In the world of T-Mobile smartphones, it's a respectable choice, especially for music...

MotoBlur integrates e-mail and social networking well. New music player is excellent. Useful Web browser improvements

Slow hardware. Poor camera. Video playback issues

The Motorola CLIQ XT has some decent ideas, but it needs more juice to make them run smartly.

Motorola CLIQ XT Review

 

Following the same path as the Motorola CLIQ on T-Mobile, the latest Android handset from the veteran phone manufacturer takes everything we love about that handset and removes its QWERTY keyboard. Essentially coming up the Motorola CLIQ XT that sports...

For those of you who weren't impressed with the original Cliq, with its thickness and slider design, you may want to check out the XT model. The Cliq XT eliminates the slider completely and relies on its touchscreen exclusively. That said, how good is...

Aaron's Motorola CLIQ XT review

 

What's Good: Battery life; signal strength; thin and pocketable. What's Bad: MOTOBLUR can be frustrating to use at times; Android 1.5 a bit long in the tooth.

Battery life; signal strength; thin and pocketable

MOTOBLUR can be frustrating to use at times; Android 1.5 a bit long in the tooth

All in all, the Motorola CLIQ XT is a good mid-range Android device with a solid feature set that should appeal to many. Though one could compare the device to the original CLIQ, I find that the feature set and form factor separate it and make it an...

Excellent voice quality, Great battery life, Camera takes really nice photos, Excellent Web and email experiences

Relatively slow downloads (though that could signal a problem with T-Mobile’s network in my area), microSD card slot under the battery cover
