Chris Ziegler’s Motorola Cliq Review

On the other hand, reviewing the Cliq for Engadget, Chris Ziegler doesn’t like the on-screen keyboard:

The screen can only be characterized as the strangest capacitive screen we’ve ever used, because it feels… well, resistive. We found it usable but perhaps the balkiest of any Android phone to date, giving the user plenty of motivation to slide open the keyboard rather than trying to deal with the virtual one. Although it’s nothing more than a reskinned version of the default Cupcake keyboard, it was basically impossible to use without injecting enough mistakes to make it more trouble than it was worth — a problem we haven’t had (at least not to this extent) on the myTouch.
