Chris Hardwick and Olivia Munn ponder the return of Motorola with the new Android-powered CLIQ with its touch screen, sliding keyboard and new MOTOBLUR interface for $200.

What You Need to Know

  • The phone is about 0.6” thick, which is actually thicker than the Droid
  • It weighs almost as much too
  • This is the first phone with Motoblur, which consolidates all of your social networking profiles onto one screen, so you don't have to worry about loading up each app
  • Each app auto-updates so you can see everything at a glance
  • There's only room for one update per widget (like a new tweet or Facebook status), but it's still cool to have them all in one place
  • As for the touch screen, it works just like we'd expect from an Android phone, though the constant updating may make it lag a little
  • The keyboard is great; big, raised keys make it easy to type with, easier than the Droid for sure
  • Overall, it's a great Android experience with the added bonus of Motoblur
  • The web browser is pretty good, though it doesn't have the double tap to zoom like Droid, because it's not Android 2.0, but other than that, it's solid.
  • The 5 megapixel camera is good too, though it doesn't have a flash; it doesn't blur easily which is a nice change from most phone cameras
  • E-mail integration is a part of Motoblur as well, and this makes it easy to see all of your inboxes at a glance
  • There are more than 10,000 Android apps (second only to the iPhone)
  • It accepts Micro SD up to 32 GB


Price

  • $200 with a contract on T-Mobile
  • We feel this is more of a $100 phone, since it feels like it's designed for teens, and the iPhone 3G is $100 with a contract

    Hm, All of the Android phones seem pretty good. I'm on Sprint and we're supposed to get new phones soon. Maybe I'll try the Hero.

    The differing cell phone carriers depend on where you live and what you do (travel, heavy data) T-Mobile may be the best for you... but it isn't the best.

    He actually was saying that he preferred the Droid mainly/solely because of verizon's better coverage... So, yeah. Your post doesn't make sense.
