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.

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 - silver (T-Mobile)

 

Announced at Mobile World Congress 2010, the Motorola Cliq XT is Moto's fifth Android offering in the United States and T-Mobile's fifth overall. Some might be quick to dismiss the XT as a slight revamp of the Motorola Cliq, but we think that's a bit...

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

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

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.

It can be said that Motorola just got its groove back. The Droid is probably one of the best phones out there, followed by the Devour, and they're constantly releasing a few good models every few weeks, which is better than some manufacturers can say....

Review: Motorola Cliq XT smartphone

 

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

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

No full QWERTY keyboard ; Some screen stutter during menu scrolling

The Cliq XT's drab gray and chrome color scheme doesn't make it the most eye-catching phone on the block, but it is very comfortable to hold, thanks to a slim, light body; rounded corners; and a textured rubber back. Measuring 2.3 by 4.6 by 0.5 inches...

Review: Motorola CLIQ XT

 

Motorola's CLIQ XT is an all around better handset than either the CLIQ or the Backflip. Improved battery life, improved performance and an improved music experience earn the CLIQ XT high(er) praise.
