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.
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
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.
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...
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
Conclusion: The Motorola Atrix 4G is one of the best phones on AT&T. It’s the first dual core 1GHz Tegra 2 phone and it’s very fast. The resolution is quite high, though it may be too high for those with poor eyes.
Pros: Fast 1GHz dual core smartphone, innovative docking accessories., Pro: Fast, high resolution display, fingerprint scanner, works with innovative accessories like the Lapdock.
Cons: Lapdock is terribly expensive, cameras are just OK., Con: Motoblur still isn't our favorite manufacturer enhancement of Android. Rear camera takes just OK photos.
