Review: Motorola CLIQ XT

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch

Motorola's CLIQ XT is an all around better handset than either the CLIQ or the Backflip. Improved battery life, improved performance and an improved music experience earn the CLIQ XT high(er) praise.

AD       article continues below...

The Motorola Cliq XT is targeted at a specific user base. Perhaps you shied away from the original CLIQ last fall because of the sideways sliding form factor. The Cliq XT is worth your consideration. Why? It does away with the slider completely and has only a touch screen for input. Most other aspects of the device are similar to the original Cliq.

Just got one today. Was going to wait for the HTC H2 but man that thing is big. I just can't imagine carrying it around everyday.

I use the phone for business and exchange functionality is important to me. I have tried the MyTouch and the Behold 2 and this phone by far has the best exchange integration. However, I noticed their is no push sync. Best is you can do is check every 15 minutes. This was probably done to save battery life. The Behold 2 actually syncs constantly and this exhausted the battery in about two hours forcing you to buy Touchdown.
Return the cliq xt and get the HD2. It looks big but its very slim and fits well in the pocket. Plus it supports push exchange, trust me you will be a lot happier with the HD2.

Missed two big things

How could you miss multitouch and flash? The browser supports both multitouch and Flash Lite. And the photos also support pinch zoom as well.
