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 resolution of 320×480, 5 megapixel camera, auto-focus, flash & video capabilities, WiFi, Bluetooth,...
Summary: The Motorola Cliq XT is a nice alternative to the original Cliq, offering a sleeker design and enhanced multimedia capabilities.
Pros: 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 with Flash Lite and multitouch support.
Cons: 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.
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.
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.
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
Excerpt: The Motorola Cliq XT is an affordable Android OS-based model from T-Mobile. This touchscreen device has been created for those looking for their first smartphone. Reviewer Jen Edwards says, "It's[...
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. And then there's the price: $129 is pretty steep when you can pick up the touchscreen-only Droid Eris from Verizon Wireless for $79 or the more powerful Motorola Droid from Best Buy for $99.
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.
