Motorola Atrix 2
3 July 2012
Excerpt: For what is essentially a higher mid-range Android smartphone, the Motorola Atrix 2 ticks most of the boxes on the checklist. Unfortunately, a couple of things are missing. But then again, only the very finicky ones among us will probably give that fact too much weightage.
Summary: Motorola ATRIX 2 has a 4.3-inch qHD display with 540 x 960 resolution pixels. Powering the Motorola ATRIX 2 is a 1.0GHz dual-core processor coupled with 1GB RAM. The ATRIX 2 is running on Android 2.3.
Summary: Late last year, Motorola made a jump start into the Android arena with the Razr ; good thing is it hasn't quite forgotten its Atrix roots, resulting in a sort of indirect successor to the Lapdock-friendly Atrix.
Pros: Bundled with 10 free EA games, MotoCast Personal Cloud Service, Good battery life, Bright 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen
Cons: Poor camera performance, Comes with Android 2.3 (update coming in Q3 2012)
Conclusion: The latest Motorola Atrix is still based on an idea that's ahead of its time. But if you're the geeky type, you can have plenty of fun with this 4G phone that, with the right accessories, transforms into other devices.
Pros: Sharp, bright screen. Powerful camera and 1080p video recording. Very long battery life.
Cons: Sluggish webtop mode. Motorola's UI changes detract from rather than enhance Android. Still a little buggy.
Excerpt: The Motorola Atrix 2 is a marked improvement over its predecessor: It's a solid Android device at an affordable price. Consumer testers found it extremely intuitive to navigate, comfortable to use, and easy to type on.
Pros: Highly responsive touchscreen, Comfortable and easy to use, Multiple camera settings, Casing and battery are easy to remove
Cons: Phone is big and heavy, Noticeable shutter lag, Small screen size compared to phone
Conclusion: Overall the Atrix 2 is a solid phone. Good screen display, solid workhorse under the cover, HD quality video. Good call quality, the phone feels good in your hand and the 1GHz dual-core processor is more than capable of handling your daily duties.
Conclusion: The Motorola Atrix 2 is a solid phone at a very reasonable price. I've been using it regularly for over a month and have been very pleased with it. Data speeds are the best I've measured on AT&T, the display is very attractive, it is comfortable to hold and battery life was excellent (for a...
Summary: Now I have that phone’s successor, the Motorola ATRIX 2. It offers a few improvements over the original, including support for faster data speeds, a slightly larger display and a beefier camera.
Pros: Bright and sharp screen, Comfortable to hold, nice texture on the back, Camera is quite decent, does great macro
Cons: UI styling is annoying, 1GHz processor may not be enough for spec fiends
Conclusion: The Motorola Atrix 2 is a great phone at a price considerably less than its competitors. At $100 with a two-year contract, the Atrix 2 a great buy for anyone on AT&T’s network. Motorola’s NinjaBlur interface isn’t fantastic, but the screen is a step up from previous phones and for 4.3 inches, it...
Pros: Dual-core processor, High quality screen, Comfortable design, Affordable
Cons: Poor volume toggle, NinjaBlur UI is ugly, Limited by AT&T’s network, Poor camera quality
Excerpt: AT&T launched the Motorola Atrix 2 with very little fanfare, slotting it in with a set of low-end Android smartphones on October 11th. However, the Atrix 2 is the successor to the venerable Atrix 4G and as such at least bears the name of a top-of-the-line Android phone.
Pros: Only $99 on-contract, Great qHD LCD display, Understated, professional design
Cons: 4G in name only, Small amount of storage, Motorola skin
