Reviews of the Motorola CLIQ have been popping up all over the web and the general consensus is that the CLIQ is a good and solid first Android effort from Motorola that leaves them wanting more. We've yet to receive our own Motorola CLIQ so we've gathered the other reviews together for your reading pleasure. We've included some highlight quotes that should give you a good idea on how the CLIQ performs. So without further ado, here's where you can find the reviews
Engadget naturally compared the CLIQ to the G1:
The CLIQ definitely steps up to the plate here, ditching the wacky arc-shaped screen opening mechanism for a traditional slide, losing the angled chin, and generally upping the quality of materials throughout the phone -- but the keyboard is another story...The biggest issue with the CLIQ's keyboard, though, is the placement of the spacebar, Alt, Symbol, Search, and back keys. Unlike the rest of the pad, that bottom row is concave rather than convex, meaning they're essentially buried beneath the edge of the device.
Gizmodo loved MOTOBLUR but think it's held back by the CLIQ's processor (the same processor in every Android device):
Like we said in the hardware section, the major thing holding back the Cliq from being a fantastic phone is the processor. The animations are smooth, the UI touches are smart and the social networking stuff is useful; we just wish we could have a bit more account customization, do all of that on faster hardware.
and MobileCrunch briefly describes MOTOBLUR:
Blur is clever. When you start up the phone it asks for all of your login particulars. Everyone, be they in Twitter or Facebook or Gmail, shows up as a contact. Most of these contacts will automatically connect with each other, ensuring you don’t have too many duplicates.
