Motorola Cliq XT review


The Motorola 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 58x117x13mm and...

The Cliq XT handled web browsing without a hitch. Media-heavy pages loaded quickly over 3G as well as via Wi-Fi. Though it hasn't yet announced a price, Motorola has said that the Motorola Cliq XT will be less expensive than the Cliq. So if you're...

Motorola Quench review


Though MotoBlur's limitations are still evident in this smartphone, the Motorola Quench possesses a better design than similar handsets. This Google Android handset has some nifty integrated features and it represents excellent value at this price.

T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ XT review


We review the Motorola CLIQ XT, a sleek and sexy new Android smartphone coming soon to T-Mobile

Solid, sleek and sexy ; Swype text input is fantastic ; Surprisingly responsive in spite of its relatively slow processor

Email isn't power user-friendly ; Android 1.5 is old and lacks Google Maps Navigation

T-Mobile's upcoming Motorola CLIQ XT is fantastic. It feels great in your hands, it fits great in your pocket and all signs point to a wallet-friendly price when it finally launches later this month. MOTOBLUR will appease the younger crowd while five...

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...

Motoblur aggregates social networking updates, New music app, Good call quality, Wealth of available apps

Mediocresoft keyboard, Small screen, Runs older version of Android, Multitouch only works in browser

Motorola Cliq XT


March MotoBlur madness is upon us: The Cliq XT (pricing to be announced from T-Mobile, which also hosts the Cliq) is Motorola's third MotoBlur phone to touch down on a carrier this month, along with the Backflip (AT&T) and the Devour (Verizon). The...

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

Some screen stutter during menu scrolling ; No full QWERTY keyboard

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

Motorola CLIQ XT (T-Mobile)


Motorola's new Android smartphone is well-built and has some great apps, but it feels slow.

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

Slow hardware. Poor camera. Video playback issues.

Conclusions Yes, the CLIQ XT is slow. But unless you're willing to give up the idea of customer support and go for a Google Nexus One, all of T-Mobile's Android phones are slow. It's a big problem for the carrier: they have five Android smartphones,...

Motorola Cliq XT - silver (T-Mobile) review:


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 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...

Motorola Quench


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...

While in Chicago to talk to Motorola about 4G and LTE, Pauline Herbst got her hands on the company's latest Android phone the day it hit the US market.
