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.

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

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

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