A bunch of sites are starting to post their Motorola CLIQ reviews and we wanted to share the general consensus with you folks. We would share our own complete review but – (frownie face) – we haven’t gotten anything yet. So in lieu of our own extremely awesome review on the web, here is what everyone else is saying:
“I’ve had a few days to play with the CLIQ and came away refreshed and hopeful. This phone is better than the G1 on all fronts but there is still a ways to go for it to beat out some of HTC’s upcoming Android offerings. Motorola didn’t hit it out of the ballpark on this one, but they’re still in the game.”
“With its excellent design, user interface improvements, and admirable feature set, the Motorola Cliq gives a big boost to the Android operating system. We had some performance quibbles with the device, and the MotoBlur interface can be a bit much, but the phone has a lot to like.”
“In the meantime, would we recommend the CLIQ? Against a G1, yes, if for no other reason than the fact that you’re getting more internal memory and a more robust, modern, un-weird hardware design. In the bigger picture, though, we’d keep our wallets in our pockets for the time being — the CLIQ looks and feels like a testbed, not quite ready for primetime but a genuinely heartening sign that Moto’s still got a pulse.”
When I first tested the HTC Hero for Sprint, I thought that I would have to leave T-Mobile just to own it. The Motorola CLIQ has stopped me dead in my tracks, and happily so. It’s a great device with some unique features in a hardware design that is very functional, even if it lacks a bit of flair. In the end, the strong social networking and messaging features make the CLIQ an absolute winner, and one that will likely earn a permanent position in my own pocket. I give it a “Highly Recommended” rating.
