Motorola CLIQ XT Reviews
"the Motorola Cliq XT will certainly please T-Mobile customers who are new to smartphones and looking for an iPhone-esque experience. If the T-Mobile myTouch
3G is too vanilla and the Nexus One too hardcore, the Cliq XT offers a happy (social) medium."
(Recommended) When it comes to the CLIQ XT, the biggest question T-Mobile subscribers need to ask themselves is whether they can deal without the hardware keyboard that the CLIQ has. The CLIQ XT offers a more robust portfolio of multimedia apps, has Flash Lite support, and is more pocket friendly than the CLIQ, but it's still a bit under powered and runs an aging version of Android. It's not for everyone, and I think young adults will appreciate it most, but if you need a phone that will ease your social networking addiction, the CLIQ XT won't steer you wrong.
"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, and they're all slow. I'd send self-supporting techies to the Google Nexus One and ordinary folks to the original CLIQ, because I like the CLIQ's hardware keyboard. But if the XT appeals to you, it's a decent choice."
"The Cliq XT is a much better Motoblur device than either the Cliq or the Backflip. It's still not perfect, mind you, but the software has shown some serious and notable improvements."
(3.5 out of 5) "The Motorola Cliq XT is a nice alternative to the original Cliq, offering a sleeker design and enhanced multimedia capabilities."
(3 out of 5) "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."
(3.5 out of 5) "The Motorola Cliq XT has superb multimedia and social networking features, but its performance isn't the strongest."
"If you’re looking for a nice, standard Android phone, you could do worse. It’s a strong, if slightly unexciting, phone that would look great in a teenager’s purse."
"Even though it might not excel in all aspects, the CLIQ XT showcases Motorola's stance in continuing their efforts in the market – they definitely have something in this device to make it stand out enough to be unique."
(4.5 out of 5) "If you're looking for a slim, pocketable Android-based phone that keeps you in touch with your friends, whether that's through text or voice, take a closer look at the Cliq XT. It's a real winner in my book."
"For those that are new to Android, the CLIQ XT is a nice phone and I would suggest it over any non-Android phone that T-Mobile offers. However, Android has so much more to offer and a wave of new phones is around the corner."
