Motorola CLIQ 2 Review

And now, continuing with the landscape sliding keyboard form factor, a more direct successor in the Motorola CLIQ 2 has arrived, boasting some updated hardware that should hopefully come off as a respectable mid-range offering on T-Mobile's lineup...

How can this have such a terrible battery life? It is actually the same hardware as Milestone 2 or Defy, but their battery last much longer. How many times has Phonearena charged the battery? Maybe was a brand new and needs a few cycles..

Another question, which PhoneArena cannot answer, is whether Motorola will update the phones operating system. I have the Motorola Cliq and while the construction allowed for it to obtain 2.1 after it was released, Motorola never updated the software on phones that had been purchased. Sorry, but if the software will not be updated in the future, than I will have to go with a native based Android phone.

First of all ill address the call quality, nearly top notch,don't know who or what carrier they called but landlines and calls to family on tmobile usa no hiss or background noise. (Maybe another networks issues?) Battery life? Like ALL androids kill the background junk, come on all u.s. skins work the battery more than necessary. Screen is good not great sunlight does wash it out but all phones get washed out in DIRECT sunlight. I don't subscribe but to facebook so I have seen no lag whatsoever. Google maps and turn by turn are smooth and flawless gps signal locks in no time. vibrant galaxy s still sucks in that regard.all in all im impressed as everything works as it should smooth and fast really did not expect this because the original clog was totally underpowered and sucked. If you want physical keyboard on android give this a serious look. Withe the oomph of the graphics chip you wont be dissapointed.

Well I have had this phone for about the weeks now and so far the phone has been decent but it lags sometimes also it has restarted numerous times by it self which if pretty annoying on it self and it sometimes freezes for a long time and of course the batter sucks other than those things no complaints lol.

only issue i have with motoblur is the lack of twitpic integration. other than that works good.

I think it deserves an 8.5. I have this phone, and the photos are GREAT. The battery life lasts for about 10 hours, which is pretty good for a homebody like me. And there is a bit of a lag, but nothing to complain about (it scores a 737 on the Quadrant Benchmark). The Motoblur is a bit of a turnoff, but you come to appreciate what it has to offer. The average speeds in the NYC Metro area (where I live) are anywhere from 3-5 MBPS Down, and 1.5 -2 MBPS. Overall, a phone to consider if you're looking into T-Mobile!

You have better chance grabbing a 1st edition blackberry then getting this piece of sh*t to work. Even on T-MOBILE'S FORUMS there is people complaining and asking questions. As usual tmobile team has nothing to say that can help other than "call 611"...then you call 611 and they said "i dont know we'll send you a new one. After 6 new tmobile cliqs 2, its gotten to the point that they KNOW this happens and yet they continue to sell it. I'll put it like this...the designers, developers, and people who continue to sell this crap deserve to get punched straight in the face.
