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
Excerpt: (1 items) March MotoBlur madness is upon us: The Cliq XT is Motorola's third MotoBlur phone to touch down on a carrier this month, along with the Backflip and the Devour ( ). The Cliq XT is the only MotoBlur phone that lacks a full QWERTY keyboard. Though I missed having a physical keyboard, the Cliq XT made up for its absence with the full-featured Connected Music Player, which combines a handful of excellent music services in a single seamless interface.
Pros: Very comfortable to hold and use, Nice social networking and multimedia features
Cons: No full QWERTY keyboard, Some screen stutter during menu scrolling
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. It’s the curtains and remaining space usage I have a problem with.

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
