Summary: The Motorola Cliq XT wasn't at all what I expected. I assumed the phone would be a rehashed version of last year's . And while I liked the Android-based Cliq just fine, I wasn't sure why Motorola and T-Mobile were releasing an update to it just months after its launch.
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...
Excerpt: 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 more. But none of these really matters.
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
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...
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.
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.
Pros: Nice value-added applications.
Cons: On the large side, not as attractive as Moto's other Android phones.

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.
Pros: Excellent build quality and design, MotoBlur service, great value for money, Swype integration with keyboard
Cons: Keyboard is small in portrait orientation, MotoBlur quickly becomes overwhelming, keys require a firm press
Excerpt: 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 the touchscreen? Well, it’s pretty good.
Conclusion: There is something of an elegance about the QUENCH. We don't find it as easy on the eye as the HTC Legend , but the design is interesting and will turn heads. We like Motoblur for the most part too, but it's the details of the touch experience that is going to define whether or not the Motorola...
Pros: Rubberised back, Motoblur
Cons: Screen a little small given the overall size of the device, resolution not the greatest, old version of Android on the units we saw
