Motorola Atrix 4G Review
1 October 2013
Excerpt: The Motorola Atrix made a splash at CES last month when it was announced. Partly because it’s running on a dual-core 1ghz processor, but it its not just its powerful specs alone that made it impressive. It was its lapdock accessory that made everyone’s head turn.
Review: Motorola Atrix 4G with Lapdock and HD Multimedia Dock
12 August 2013
Conclusion: I wanted to like the Atrix and the concept of the Webtop user interface and docking stations. I’m not saying that it’s a bad phone at all. The horsepower is impressive, the build quality is solid, and Webtop-ness adds a little extra oomph to the equation.
Conclusion: Motorola's Atrix 4G, the unique bleeding-edge superphone that can transform itself into a PC, shows how we'll likely be using our mobile devices in the year 2020. But to get a taste of the future, you'll have to pay, and deal with some bugs along the way.
Pros: Very fast and powerful. Gorgeous screen. Optional docks turn the phone into a desktop or laptop PC.
Excerpt: Powerful Android smartphones are becoming a dime a dozen, so it takes a lot to stand out amongst the pack nowadays. Regardless, the Motorola Atrix made a splash ...
Pros: Blazing fast web surfing experience – even for sites with flash, offers performance like no other smartphone on the market (at-least not yet), excellent form-factor, tight social media integration, video calling, great camera, HD Multimedia Dock is a neat accessory to have.
Cons: Build quality is a bit weak, screen suffers from some graininess, device heats up, power button is awkwardly located, price tag for lapdock is hard to justify
Engadget Reviews The Motorola Atrix 4G, Finds A Great Phone, Highly Overpriced Gimmicky Docks, Awful Data Speeds, Bootloader Lock, And Lots Of Crapware
31 July 2011
Summary: The Atrix 4G is a great phone by itself, but AT&T and Motorola seem to have tried their hardest to cripple it on both the app/UI and accessories front. If you're looking for a speedy dual-core powerhouse with a great battery life and don't mind Motoblur and all the restrictions, this phone is for...
Excerpt: The Motorola Atrix 4G rises above what PhoneArena.com editors call a "sea of forgettable devices from Motorola's camp" to take the crown as king of the Android line-up. That's due to its "insanely speedy" dual-core processor (as Joshua Topolsky of Engadget.com describes it), a sharp 4-inch touch...
Pros: Responsive interface, Large, colorful display, Can double as a netbook
Cons: Slow 4G speeds, Lags when used with accessory dock
Conclusion: The Motorola Atrix is my favorite Android phone on AT&T and, at $99 through AmazonWireless, it's a very good deal. You may not be blown away by AT&T's 4G speeds (I wasn't), but it is a step up from 3G. And once you get stuff loaded, the Atrix processor has the power to move things along smoothly.
Conclusion: It seems Motorola is coming back strong into the mobile game. Once the leader in phone manufacturing, it has the pedigree and experience. But that was a long time ago, long before Android was even on the drawing board and things have changed since then.
Pros: Quad-band GSM and dual-band 3G with HSDPA and HSUPA, 4" 16M-color capacitive touchscreen of qHD (960 x 540 pixels) resolution, scratch-resistant Gorilla glass, Dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 proccessor, ULP GeForce GPU, Tegra 2 chipset; 1GB of RAM, Android OS v2.2; MOTOBLUR UI (update to Gingerbrea...
Cons: Not the latest Android version, No FM radio, Screen image is pixelated upon closer inspection, Questionable placement of the Power/Lock button, Poor pinch zoom implementation in the gallery, No dedicated shutter key, Doesn’t operate without a SIM card inside
Conclusion: While it’s powerful and secure, the Motorola Atrix 4G won’t blow you away as a smartphone. It’s certainly as good as any other Android devices on the market, if not a tad better in most departments – but it’s what you can do with it that makes it stand out from the crowd.
Pros: Fast dual-core processor, Bright, high-resolution display, Unique laptop dock and other accessories, Solid reception and voice quality, Built-in fingerprint reader
Cons: Overpriced accessories, Overly glossy screen, Not all apps leverage dual-core speed, So-so battery life
