Summary: So I have had this phone for over a month now and I can say I quite like it.
I had to get a phone for my new job and wanted one with a keyboard as the primary use for this phone is business. The keyboard is great on this phone, it is a joy to use compared to any other hardware keyboard phone I've used. I have used a lot from blackberrys, old sidekicks back in the day, and the sprint evo one with a keyboard. I have to say I like this one the best. The look and feel of the phone is nice and solid in a sleek utilitarian way.
It seems that most of the complaints are from people who really hate how motorola hosed them with the last cliq phone. Well keep that review to that phone, this phone is a great little device. It is not a G2, It is not a mytouch4g, it is not a galaxy II, however it is an excellent phone that handles the job of email, calendar, open office docs, and phone calls very well. It has TeleNav GPS built in, and it has Google Maps Navigation as well. Two great navigation apps you won't get lost with this phone. The native 3g hot spot works excellent for business purposes, if you need it to break out your laptop and fire off a few emails and docs back to the home office it does the job, but if you really want a mobile hotspot to watch vids and do the whole multimedia thing, get a 4g phone with the hotspot stuff. This phone is excellent for what it is, a mid market smart phone.
Some people have a problem with MotoBlur, It is simple, don't sign up for more than you need to and it really stays out of the way. However I do find the MotoBlur widgets very useful. The speakers on this phone are excellent, nice crisp and loud. The video playback is actually impressive considering it is not AMOLED device, the colors are vivid and clean. The camera is decent for what it is, it's not a nokia with a zeiss lens but it does take clearer pics than an iphone with good lighting.
I would have a slight issue with this phone if it was to be my primary personal phone (mine is a Nokia N900, greatest most flexible device ever) because it doesn't really have too many bells and whistles. However if you are looking for a phone that offers solid email, solid contact, calendar and business integration this phone is a great choice. Especially at the price it is being offered. The more I use it, the happier I am with my choice as I just needed a little workhorse of a phone for work. If you're a phone user who doesn't fiddle with their phone at all times, uses when they need to, play a random game or two here and there to kill time, and definitely needs a keyboard because on screen swyping annoys you, this is the phone for you.
