Great phone for price. Worth a buy
4 April 2014
Summary: Although this phone is older and only comes with the Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS, it still works great. Bars are usually full, so no struggling to get a signal and screens transition quite smoothly. The phone does tend to heat up when under heavy workload and rarely ever freezes when under pressure. Battery life is quite good and I have spent the entire day playing music on it before running dead.
Summary: Good phone, great camera, fast, and great price. Be aware, when upgrading ROMs that this only has an old kernel available right now, and newer ROMs won't have access to certain benefits of the old ROMs. There is a new kernel in development right now, but it's a very slow process. Still - can't beat the quality or price.
Summary: This device was OK on 2.2 android but when 2.3 android was released all things went down the hill for this device, and keep in mind that this was a Canadian unit so the results may differ from the American variant, I was using it unlocked on TELUS in Canada, but the device on 2.3 was so buggy I had to resort to custom firmwares, most of them were not available due to broken links on XDA so I thought I was going to have to use bittorrent, for the ones that were available,...
Pros: Fingerprint reader, looks nice, 2 cameras
Cons: Music and video playback was as choppy as hell, device kept doing things without my consent, wonder if it were liquid damaged.
Great trouble free fast multitasking phone. Business or pleasure or both. P

Summary: The ATRIX 4G, though outdated at 3 years old, really is packed full of features. The car dock software, the webtop software, and full Firefox browser using all the motorolla docking stations turns the phone into a PC. I use the lapdock notebook, the car docking station and the bluetooth keyboard and bt mouse while hooked up with HDMI cable to my tv also for full pc experience. The ATRIX 4G also has finger print reader to lock and also encrypt phone.
Summary: The best feature of this device is its battery life - almost twice that of an iPhone. The screen resolution is very sharp and bright. One of the things it lacked in its feature was having individualized ringtones for different categories, e.g. ringtone is same for email or text message alerts. Overall it is a good buy.
Great phone for a great price, all you could want from a phone.

Summary: I bought this phone as a gift for my sister. I've always been fascinated by this phone, since it has some special features that you don't even find in the smartphones released today. It is obviously a bit older, but it still has an OK processor and display, compared to newer budget phones. There is no stutter at all when operating the phone, and you can definitely tell that's it's of high quality when holding it.
Summary: This phone is a Great Phone for its price. Only problem is you cannot upgrade to lates Android OS. Its Fast, Accurate, Plenty of memory space 16gb, Great reception, Volume is High enough so you can hear incoming calls/messages, descent amount of features. Like I said all Pros except Upgrade feature! Other than that, buy with confidence! Good Luck!
Summary: The phone works well. Big icons, loud speaker, great battery life, fingerprinting scanner. The downside is the wall charger, which is definitely not made for USA and its 2-prong plug adapter doesn't fit well on the power outlet.
