Aaron's Motorola CLIQ XT review
17 November 2010
Summary: 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 independent competitor that's worthy of a look. The thin size makes it perfect for the pocket, and the rubberized buttons at the bottom of the unit seem perfectly equipped to handle the test of time. The CLIQ XT can be had...
Excerpt: The revolution is back in business… Rogers has released another Android-powered device. You can now get the Motorola QUENCH on the following price plans: 3-year contract: $49.99 2-year contract: $324.99 1-year contract: $374.99 No-Contract: $424.99 The Quench comes with Motorola’s MOTOBLUR, runs on the first Android OS version 1.5, a 3.1-inch touchscreen display with a
Summary: The ringtones are loud, which is boosted by a dedicated speaker at the back together with a good tunes selection. The vibro is above average. Speech transmission is not a problem.
From the use of Gigabyte Z1305 we know that it freezes when you get SMS from short phone numbers like хххх if you open a message, go out from it and then return. The same issue is present here. During one moth I had several reloads.
Summary: 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.
Conclusion: The Cliq XT’s merged social network address book is a great drawing card for this phone, even if you don’t spend all your socializing time in cyberspace. If you’re not constantly Facebooking, you can eliminate the bubbles to acquire more screen real estate for other apps. In other words, while the XT is designed for the Twitter generation, it will help you get acclimated while performing as a well-designed regular phone.
Pros: 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
Cons: Motoblur bubbles cover home screens, Poor video recorder, Back battery cover difficult to remove
Motorola Cliq XT
is my favorite device out of the several I've reviewed over the last few months. It's small, powerful and it just works, whether I'm sending email, catching up with my social circle or watching videos. I experienced some slowdowns while trying to download large attachments, but I think the network in my area is to blame, not the device.
Pros: Excellent voice quality, Great battery life, Camera takes really nice photos, Excellent Web and email experiences
Cons: Relatively slow downloads (though that could signal a problem with T-Mobile's network in my area), microSD card slot under the battery cover
Conclusion: Just looking at the name probably brings a lot of similarities with the Motorola CLIQ , but the CLIQ XT substantially sets itself apart in many ways. Sure it's got no physical QWERTY keyboard that most people feel to be beneficial at times, but the CLIQ XT's superior messaging capabilities clearly make it jump straight to the top of the heap with its responsive feel and touch.
Pros: Superior messaging experience, Great photo quality, Good calling quality, Flash Lite 3.0 Support
Cons: Poor battery life, Sometimes slows down, Unappealing design
Summary: 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 will become annoyed quickly.
Pros: Motoblur aggregates social networking updates, New music app, Good call quality, Wealth of available apps,
Cons: Mediocre soft keyboard, Small screen, Runs older version of Android, Multitouch only works in browser,
T-Mobile's Android-powered Motorola CLIQ XT with MOTOBLUR review
17 March 2010
Excerpt: The new Motorola CLIQ XT for T-Mobile USA, known as the QUENCH in other markets, is an Android-powered smartphone in a slim, attractive form factor that features the MOTOBLUR social networking system. Learn all about it in Todd's full review.
Conclusion: No kidding, it's not a Nexus One. But then it costs much less and you can take it to your local T-Mobile store if you have problems. The Cliq XT isn't a power user's phone, but it's a solid Android handset. We confess that we prefer the Cliq on T-Mobile and the Backflip on AT&T, not just because of their hardware keyboards but because they're a bit quicker and look much better. The Cliq XT doesn't look Motorola, it looks more like a cheap Asian handset.
Pros: Nice value-added applications.
Cons: On the large side, not as attractive as Moto's other Android phones.
