Summary: 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. That name is belied by middle-of-the-road specs and a price point — $99 on-contract — that implies that neither Motorola nor AT&T think of the phone as a hero device.
Pros: Only $99 on-contract, Great qHD LCD display, Understated, professional design
Cons: 4G in name only, Small amount of storage, Motorola skin
Excerpt: Motorola is working hard to retain their footing in the smartphone segment and so far, they’ve been faring quite well. Their recent attempt at a Galaxy S II competitor in the form the RAZR XT910 proved to be quite fruitful. Their latest device is in the form of the Motoroal Atrix 2 that’s designed to offer users premium features at a reasonable price. We’re here to tell you if they made good on those deliverables. Take a closer look.
Summary: For $99, you're getting a lot in the Motorola Atrix 2: A brilliant qHD display, sharp 8-MP camera, and strong dual-core performance. No, the 4G speeds aren't blazing, but this smartphone offered faster downloads and uploads than its predecessor. If you're in the market for an Android smartphone in this price range, the $99 LG Thrill 4G for AT&T offers a unique 3D display, but it has a bulkier design.
Pros: Large bright display, Fast dual-core performance, Very good camera with dedicated shutter button, Strong speakers
Cons: Google Talk video chat works over Wi-Fi only, Lapdock feels gimmicky
