Motorola Atrix 2
27 February 2012
Excerpt: Greetings all on this very gray Charlotte day! As many of you who read my posts know, I have been reviewing various Verizon offerred smartphones and tablets, and I will surely continue to do so, (thanks Ashley!).
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...
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
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.
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.
Conclusion: For $99 with contract, this is a lot of high end Android goodness. If you're a Moto fan or simply are looking for the best Android phone you can get for little money, the Motorola Atrix 2 and LG Thrill 4G are our top budget picks on AT&T.
Pros: High end smartphone for only $99 with contract. Improved display and HSPA+ data speeds.
Cons: Like many sequels, nothing truly innovative or flashy here.
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.
