Dogfight review time! Aaron takes a look at the Motorola CLIQ 2 and the T-Mobile G2, two QWERTY Android smartphones on T-Mobile. The CLIQ 2 offers a 1 GHz processor, 3.7-inch display, 5-megapixel camera, and Android 2.2 with MOTOBLUR. The G2, on the other hand, sports an 800 MHz processor, 3.7-inch display, and a stock build of Android 2.2.

The CLIQ 2 retails for $99, and the T-Mobile G2 can be had for $99.99 (though pricing goes up and down depending on the week). They're both good Android options, but only one can win the fight. Who will prevail? Part 1 of 2.

Tito Rodriguez
Tito Rodriguez I loved my cliq (still have it) & I love my G2. Only bad experience I truly had was motorola ignoring the tmobile camp completely for the droid camp. That's why no mas moto in the future for me.

Michael Milkiewicz
Michael Milkiewicz Don't know much about CLiq 2, own a cliq 1 and have never been happy with it. Own a mytouch 3g, and Nexus one, which I enjoy the most. Have tried the G2, think its close enough to my Nexus and would recommend to any tmo user. HTC makes a much better android. Girlfriend has a Vibrant niece has Nexus 2, and those aren't as nice either.
Victor Rios

William Cron G2, if for no other reason than HTC will actually upgrade the damn thing. Instead of upgrading the Cliq XT to 2.2, they want XT owners to buy the Cliq 2.
