"Really not impressed. Motorola could have done better."
5 September 2012
Pros: Slight improvements to the functionality of the OS Hard button camera launch/shutter Higher resolution camera/video recorder Battery cover is more naturally removed/attached.
Cons: NO LONGER HAS THE FINGER SCANNER TO UNLOCK!!! Less internal memory, awkward layout, overall larger, and smaller battery than the previous Atrix. Some useful functionality of the previous Atrix has been taken away
"Might be a good phone if AT&T would honor the warranty!"

Pros: Bright, clear display. Good call reception. Looks good. Feels really good in your hand. The "rubberish" back is especially nice.
Cons: Camera difficult to focus. Shutter doesn't work half the time. Audio is intermittent. Display jumps from one screen to another w/o touching it. Touchscreen is intermittent. Frequent errors when trying to check email.
Pros: Fast, clean snappy GUI, quality construction, love the feel of the back
Cons: This was a deal breaker for me. To my understanding, Motorola changed the pinout on the headphone jack. This change impacts the inline control of iPhone compatible headsets (Skullcandy Aviators in my case). Audio still sounds great but the pause/play a
Summary: Pros Good still camera, video recording. Good looking. Full Hd playback. Loud and clear sound. Decent battery. Headphones are sexy looking with good audio clarity and ideal for running and gym, they will not fall doesn't matter you run or dance but bass response is not good. Cons Poor display, the contrast levels are insane and image looks very dark and dull with poor colors. Compare the display with IPS or amoled and you will cry.
Good phone, bad battery, bad camera, worst company...

Summary: This phone was my first purchase from flipkart.com, six months ago. At that time it cost me Rs. 21990. I bought this phone only after going through positive reviews like those here. But my personal experience is not what i would have liked. The phone offers quite good features in the price range, but the battery backup is awful. The camera is also not good in spite of being 8MP. Motorola has recently closed its operations in India, so prompt servicing is not guaranteed.
Summary: Its got a lotta features. After using it for 6 months I realised its got a serious network problem.It drops frequently.You can google this. Second serious thing to note is the lack of service centers.I had to drive for 18 kms to deposit the phone for service in Bangalore.They'll further send it to Chennai. So service takes a long time.Something like 2 weeks. Don't upgrade to ICS yourself.It totally complicated issues for me.
Summary: I bought it recently. Not sure whether it was a good buy or not. You may note the following points. 1. The screen is very big which is good for accessing mails, watching movie etc, the phone is heavy though, it may get uncomfortable and tiring when you are talking for long. 2. Be sure whether you want to upgrade to ICS - The background in ICS is black, I wish it was white background, like Windows. 3.
Summary: Using it from a month. Good phone, sometimes gives you a micromax feel by front looks...back cover is nice though. Shittiest feature in this phone is it's camera. HORRIBLE CAMERA! Very grainy and a complete disaster in dark. Small charger cable length. Screen is good, notification led is cool. Not a flauntable phone but basics are good.
Summary: This phone is a pretty attractively priced phone, given the feature set on offer and is a good buy. The phone is expected to get Ice Cream Sandwich in Q3. However Motorola has had a poor track record in India. If possible wait till April-May when this price point will be flooded with phones like HTC One S, Sony Xperia P, Samsung Galaxy S Advance all with similar specifications and price point. Also consider Nokia 800, if willing to go for Windows Phone.
