Motorola CLIQ 2 Review
Signal strength remained uniform throughout our testing in the Greater Philadelphia area as it retained a healthy amount of bars in high coverage areas and didn't drop any calls.
Sadly, we're not fond of the poor battery life offered by the Motorola CLIQ 2 as it managed to chug on easily through an 8-hour work day, but quickly depleted at the 12 hour mark on normal usage. For light users, you'll probably get less than a day out of the handset while heavy users will want to keep a spare battery or charger at hand.
First and foremost, we're glad to see that the Motorola CLIQ 2 received some reasonably upgraded specs over its predecessor – like its high resolution display and 1GHz processor. Secondly, it's far better in terms of design and construction with its refined choice of materials. Additionally, we easily like that the keyboard has a decent look and feel to it over the original which adheres to the needs of messaging oriented users out there. In reality, it does everything right when you consider the fact that it's a successive device that doesn't steer off the mid-range category that it's targeting. But if you just prefer something more impressive, we'd recommend something like the T-Mobile G2 – which of course will cost you more. But in the end, we're confident of the Motorola CLIQ 2 being one of the more respectable mid-range Android offerings on T-Mobile's lineup right now.
Software version of the reviewed unit: Android 2.2, Build: BGN_1.0.23, System version: 1.0.23.MB611.T-Mobile.en.US
