Reviews summary

Based on 3 reviews

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.

For example, Motorola takes a quality touchscreen and surrounds it with a bezel that somehow makes the screen look smaller, less impressive. Moreover, the D-pad is an awkward not-quite-a-square-but-not-really-a-circle look. That is not a good look.

On the bright side, the phone is responsive and thinner than its predecessor. Running Motoblur on top of Android 1.5, which allows the user to have some fun with widget customization and home screen personalization. Blur’s Happenings, for example, provides a constant real-time live stream of your Twitter and Facebook updates. Further along this social networking thought is how the Cliq XT offers a master inbox that stores your texts, MMS’s and IM messages.

The Cliq XT also offers Bluetooth 2.0, a good camera and video record ability, along with Wi-Fi, FM radio, 3.5mm head phone input, and other very useful features.

It all works well, and appears to be targeted to social networking fans. The problem, however, is that Motorola enhanced the very features on a phone that would have benefited by a full QWERTY keyboard, which has been abandoned on this model.

You’ll have to ultimately judge this one. It’s tricky. I will say that Motorola has seemed much more coherent and focused on some of its other models than it has on the Cliq XT.

The bottom line on this phone is what YOU think and how YOU feel when interacting with it. After all, isn’t that really all that matters in the end?

Looks to attract customers with its slimmer design and hopefully more complete interface

from PhoneArena

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. There are also many goodies in the software to clearly differentiate it with the CLIQ – like the music player, multi-touch support, and Flash Lite to watch YouTube files. Clearly Motorola is positioning... Full review

Phone Scoop

It's still not perfect, mind you, but the software has shown some serious and notable improvements

from Phone Scoop

First and foremost, the phone's menu performance exceeded my expectations. It is the fastest, most responsive Blur phone I've used to date. That's a big help. Coming in a close second is the improved battery life. The Cliq XT lasts much longer than either the Cliq or Backflip did, and that makes it much easier to recommend. The improved music experience made me happy (well, happier), but I might have preferred improved camera functionality. Solid phone and internet performance don't hurt, either.

There are still a few drawbacks, though. The Cliq XT is saddled with the oldest ve... Full review
