Detailed Look at Motorola Cliq

cliq_03The fine folks at T3 are among the first to really get their hands on the upcoming Motorola CLIQ/DEXT handset.  They’re big fans of the MOTOBLUR interface and the widgets that come with it.  They do compare it to HTC Sense but not in great detail.

It’s not all sunshine and glitter – they are fair in the review and even offer up some criticism.  For instance, the keyboard feels a bit cramped and the camera comes off as run-of-the-mill.  Despite the shortcomings, they definitely look on the phone favorably and feel MOTO has a winner on their hands.

That aside, the DEXT is a rock-solid performer from the long-serving Motorola. The fast processor means jumping from widget to widget is smooth as you like, with only the odd touchscreen issue to slow you down, while the connectivity is second to none. Heavy social networkers armed with a Gmail log-in should definitely consider the DEXT. You’ll need to put in some hours to master the mass of options on offer but it at least feels worth the effort. When was the last time you could say that about a Motorola phone?
