Just picked up my Motorola Cliq about a week ago. I was trying to decide between MT3G or the CLIQ and I went with the motorolla product. I had an iPhone and shadow previously and figured it is time to abandon HTC even though I have never had their touch screen before. I like the CLIQ for 5MP, voicemail player (no need to dial voicemail to listen to messages), qwerty keyboard (spacious, solid, comfortable after week of use), great interface and believe it or not its weight (i like my phone to be slightly heavier because I like to feel it in my hand). Compared to the MT3G the things I mentioned are not common characteristics for them both. I also like it better than myTouch because it is expandable to 32GBs of storage vs 16GB max for the myTouch which is a huge deal for me because I store a lot of files and music on my devices Smiley. I also like the fact that when you slide it out, the top part in the back has a sexy Moto logo and is lined with some sort of brushed metal I guess.... or w/e that is, but all I know it is metal and adds quality to the phone. The only things I am not happy about is its screen. It is 3.1 and is slightly smaller compared to the MT3G. The newest Motorolla (DROID) for Verizon does come with a bigger screen and the new 2.0 OS.
But because of all the other specs and parameters it makes CLIQ stand out more in my opinion, opinion based on device capabilities. As far as the OS of course I would like 2.0 or even 1.6 instead of 1.5 better. But I am certain the update will come sooner or later and willing to wait for it. This phone came out 3-4 weeks ago for god's sake and people need to chillax with some negative comments and other forums online. It will be worth waiting for the update, and some hacks/mods even better, so developers take your time please but deliver quality to me. Find me at http://www.Motorola-Cliq.com I share everything there.
I think by 'they are so similar' the author meant that they have the same screen size, RAM and ROM, and the same Mhz processr', they look quite diff on the outside actually :)
budget Android with Sense UI and decent looking phone.
a good hit. Both the Touch 2 and this Touch B are great budget phones
Lame! lunch the tegra phone now! its already dec 2009. i want to see the tegra phone now not this dump phone.
Based solely on the pics provided here, I can surely say it has a QVGA screen. Well, at this age and on our way to the second decade of the 21st century, QVGA screens should be shown the door these days. At least only for smartphones!
And all "feature phones" should come standard with QVGA!
This is probably a low-end Android. Good market strategy but not much different than existing HTC Android pone.
phonehouse, 02 Dec 2009bad phone"bad phone"?! Do you own one? Do you even know the full specs? or you just don't like HTC or this phone's appearance? I'm sure everybody would love to hear about the specs if you know any of them.
Now the rumors are different, saying that instead, the HTC Touch B smartphone will run the Brew Mobile Platform
can anybody tell which os is multi tasking & better. And touch screen GOOD . resitive or capacitve whats the diff?
Your comment was "they are so similar so what is the point" !
That they look similar on the outside is not significant is it?
Many cars look similar from a distance, what matters is inside !
In this case dumping WinMo for a decent o/s is clearly a very
important upgrade indeed. Well done HTC, more please!
i took my upgrade option and choose the htc dream understand the options and aps are limitless but when the battery actually dies 3.5 hours after a full charge ... at least my laptop has a bigger screen... So i tryed to return it 3 days later and get a different cell and it seems that its not possible after 30 mins of use Buyers beware (rogers)regardless of how much warrantee you purchase and i have complained . now all i do is text dont really go on line for email dont use the gps .there are no programs running in background and i turned the 3g down to 2g dimmed the screen . gotta carry a charger everywhere the cell should come with a purse. DEAR Mr. or Ms HTC Upgrade that battery so it can last a full day or 8hours
phonehouse, 02 Dec 2009bad phoneHow do you know is a bad phone? Have you use it before? Don't just post for the sake of posting.
Not sure what is so bad about it with the limited details availble. Seems such comment keeps you entertained!
