I’m always eager to check out new phones and devices when they show up at my doorstep, and so it’s fun to videotape my first reactions and impressions about them before actually launching into the full review. The Motorola CLIQ 2 is the latest device to pay me a visit. Obviously Motorola felt like it did something right with the first CLIQ (and even the corresponding CLIQ XT) and it just seemed a good idea to take it and improve on it.
Will this phone sequel be a better hit than its original? While that remains to be seen so far, it shows that Motorola has a lot of faith in this product because now it has thrown in a whole schload of improved features and specs, while changing around the design a bit (in a very unique way, I might add).
So what are some of the things to expect in the CLIQ 2? For speed, it uses a 1GHz TI OMAP 3620 (same as the Droid Pro and Droid 2) and throws in 512 MB RAM, to make it a rather speedy midrange Android selection. It also comes with a bare 2 GB external storage and even worse 300 MB internal storage, so I’d strongly encourage you to get a larger MicroSD card to go with the phone, if you don’t already have one laying around. It features a 5 MP camera with LED flash, and sadly video recording is only SD. Also the 1420 mAh battery gives a manufacturer rating of just under 8 hours talk time. For an Android this is a huge accomplishment. It also uses the same MOTOBLUR UI that you would find on the Droid Pro and Droid 2, which is ideal for business customers who had been looking to the previously mentioned phones as a secure business phone option.
To get some more details on the phone itself, watch my unboxing video below. It’s 9 minutes of me, box, and phone (A lethal combination, if you ask me).
