motorola droid with BGR :
It’s running Android 2.0. Duh.
It’s thin. Just slightly thicker than an iPhone 3GS and the thinnest QWERTY-slider we’ve ever seen.
It is the fastest Android device we’ve ever used. (It’s running a TI OMAP3430 processor)
The feel of the device is very reminiscent of the OQO 02 model computer. Just smaller.
It’s metal with a non-spring-assisted slide, very sturdy, and half soft-touch plastic.
Awesome capacitive display. Plus it’s huge. Easily the best screen we’ve ever seen on an Android handset, and an amazing screen overall.
The QWERTY keyboard is actually pretty usable and has a soft-touch rubberized finish. We’ve been told the keyboard design isn’t final on this unit, thus the two no-shows. Have we mentioned this phone flies? It’s the Android device to beat, and easily the most impressive.
From what we’ve been told, Google had a direct hand in the Motorola Droid. Something to the point of almost dictating every move Motorola made when designing and making the phone. Interesting, huh? There’s a desktop cradle/charger that will ship with the Motorola Droid that we’ve been playing around with. It turns your Droid into a “multimedia station” and displays local weather, the time, etc. No one wants to listen, but it makes the CLIQ looks like a child’s toy (partly because it is, and partly because the Droid, even in its non-final form, is the most impressive phone we’ve used since the iPhone. It’s positively amazing).
display quality is qreat and interface and menu are very very nice and lovely
this is best
lev, 20 Oct 2009hows the signal and call quality?
hows the keyboard/Motorola Cliq reviews:
There are a couple nice touches that we're appreciative of, such as the blinking light on the front for notifications, which has been on BlackBerries for a while. Great if you don't get a lot of emails or if you don't follow a lot of people. You can also wake up the phone using the facebuttons, not just the power toggle, so two quick menu button presses will get you to the home screen immediately.
Having a D pad is going to be useful in the future when Android developers start making games that take advantage of it, but you can use it now in NES/SNES emulators. And the camera is a beefy 5-megapixel autofocus, which produces decent photos compared to other Android phones. Plus, call quality is pretty good, something Motorola has managed to do well even when their software has faltered.
i just got the phone saturday. the phone is so fun. i cant stop playing with the phone. tmobile is really coming out with this one.
some notes about build-quality and hardware in this review
i just got mine yesterday and i havae to say this is THE best android phone to hit tmobile usa so far..i lovez it
A good new,the device is really good in voice,audio and browser quality! Bad news,no flash support,camera is good,indeed not amazing and video recording is CIF (352x288) at 24 FPS!
i'd say not a bad mobile at all for the right price,, if it costs 150 euros as mobile-review had stated then this would be a ¨best deal¨ for somebody like me who prefers pay-as-you-go sim cards and is rreluctant to pay 400-700 euros for a mobile!
A good video review for DEXT MB200 for Orange:
Many very good applications are available there for free, and most of the rest are pretty reasonably priced.
Motorola has also included a number of new homescreen widgets that support its MOTOBLUR messaging/social networking system. The new widgets provide quick access to the universal messaging inbox, allow users to post quick status updates, and even let users browse through news headlines that come in via RSS news feeds. The look of the homescreen is much more cluttered than the HTC Hero's, which features much slicker looking HTC-developed widgets, but the information is all there for quick access none the less.
The basic look of the CLIQ's UI is dark, with red UI controls for scrolling and such, and white homescreen widgets that can be controlled with finger swipes. Tabs have been added to apps like the contact manager to allow users to quickly switch between history, info, and "Happenings" views. There is no built-in theme support on the CLIQ, though Motorola supplies a number of nice wallpaper images for the sliding 5-panel homescreen, each of which can be customized with widgets.
Motorola supplies some additional functionality to the CLIQ user by way of its MOTOBLUR web portal. Once you log in with the MOTOBLUR account you created when setting up your phone, you can log in and use the portal to import contacts, get a rough GPS position on your phone (if you lose it), or remotely wipe all of the data (once you know its lost for good). When you get a new phone, logging into the same MOTOBLUR account will restore your on-device linked accounts as well some of your homescreen widgets. Motorola's included Media Link application for PCs also helps users manage photos, music, and videos on their phone, and can even transcode videos for optimum playback on the CLIQ.
Google search is nicely integrated into the homescreen, and I am particularly impressed by the speed and accuracy of Google's voice based search tool. Google Maps, with Latitude, is always a solid performer, too, and it integrates well with the other apps on the device, where appropriate. The CLIQ has a GPS module, but Google's WiFi/cell tower based system works well enough for most tasks, and doesn't put any undue strain on the battery
The web browser on the CLIQ, while not as nice as the multi-touch capable version found on the HTC Hero, is a more than adequate app that is capable of offering a near-desktop browsing experience. The zooming controls can be a bit awkward, but the page rendering speed and overall quality are very good. There is support for multiple open windows at the same time, as well, and the fingertip panning and scrolling is quite intuitive. What it lacks is built-in Adobe Flash support and good bookmark management. A bookmark widget for the homescreen would have been nice, too, but at least there is a YouTube client for watching web videos, and the video quality is very good.
