Review: Motorola Cliq 2
The Cliq 2 makes some modest improvements to the Android music experience. Users can sideload media directly to the microSD card, or use third-party solutions such as the doubleTwist AirSync software. The media player includes an FM radio, links to Wiki-based music communities and information, as well as the Amazon MP3 store and SoundHound built into the music player user interface. These added services don't do anything to jazz up the look of the Android Music player, but they do actually add features. The player still doesn't have a user-adjustable equalizer of any sort. Slacker Radio is also pre-loaded on the Cliq 2.
The music player also doubles as the media/video player and even includes links to YouTube and GoTV for music-related content. I was able to side-load some non-protected video content and it played back just fine. Thankfully, T-Mobile skips MobiTV and its own branded mobile video services on this handset. The Cliq 2 does have Netflix on board for those interested.

The Cliq 2 also has the DLNA service on board. It allows users to wirelessly share phone-based content with other DLNA certified equipment like some TVs.
