Review: Motorola Cliq 2

Calls

The Cliq 2's phone application is the basic Android calling application. Motorola/T-Mobile didn't even bother with a new skin.

The Cliq 2 also supports Wi-Fi calling. Setting the Cliq 2 up so that it knows to make calls over a local Wi-Fi hotspot was a snap. It takes several minutes (first time only) for the Cliq 2 to tunnel through the internet and connect to T-Mobile's service, but once it does, calls work perfectly via Wi-Fi. The one problem is that this isn't the same UMA service previously offered by T-Mobile. Making calls via Wi-Fi use plan minutes, and the Wi-Fi calls do not transfer from Wi-Fi network to the T-Mobile cellular network and vice versa.

Contacts

The Cliq 2 will import all of your Google and Exchange contacts if you have them. Adding Facebook friends is optional. If you choose to do that, the contacts application adds the Facebook profile photos to your existing contacts and merges them into one contact.

You can choose to sort contacts via status updates and/or your most recent calling/texting history. In the main contact app, swipe to the left to see all the most recent messages you've sent/received and who you've sent them to. Swipe to the right to see your contacts' most recent Facebook (and Twitter if you want) status updates.
