Motorola Atrix HD review: Fast phone meets AT&T's zippy 4G LTE
30 August 2012
Excerpt: The new Motorola Atrix HD has AT&T 's speedy 4G LTE service along with the new Android 4 operating system, a slim profile and a gorgeous display. Everything looks outstanding on the Atrix's 4.5-inch screen.
Conclusion: Overall the Motorola Atrix HD is one of the better smartphones you can buy right now as I’ve seen it as low and $49 and AT&T lists it at $99. I recommend checking this phone out if you don’t want a phone with a lot of software modifications as this phone is the closest to a Nexus in terms of it’s...
Excerpt: The Motorola Atrix HD is the follow-up to last year's Atrix 4G and Atrix 2 smartphones for AT&T. This year, the Atrix gains a much improved display, a faster processor, and better build over the older phones.
Conclusion: We're really impressed by Motorola's first Android 4 handset for AT&T. It has the stylish good looks of the Droid RAZR with the price tag of a bargain smartphone. The 720p display is very sharp and colorful with good viewing angles and outdoor visibility, and the speaker is above average.
Excerpt: A little less than two years ago, Apple’s iPhone 4 made its debut with a display of unrivaled clarity. The Retina display’s pixel density of 326 pixels per inch gave it a sharpness that no Android phone could match. Just this past May, the HTC One X made its U.S.
Pros: One of the best smartphone displays right now, blows away the screens of other 0 phones. 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU and 1GB of RAM offer tons of speed. So long Webtop, so long heavy, bloated MotoBlur. Minimalist Android skin is the best implementation outside of stock ICS.
Cons: Battery life is disappointing — keep a charger on you at all times. AT&T exclusivity is a bummer for non-AT&T customers.
Conclusion: If you’re looking for the absolute best phone on AT&T, it is not the Atrix HD. The camera isn’t fantastic, the battery life isn’t revolutionary, the screen is a tad washed out, and it’s constructed out of plastic. But if you’re looking for the best deal on AT&T, this could be it.
Pros: Android 4.0, 4.5-inch HD screen, Easy-to-hold pleasant design, Decent camera
Cons: Weak battery life (one day), Screen is slightly washed out, Camera can't compete with S3 or One X, Plastic construction
Conclusion: Oh Motorola! We were expecting so much more out of this one, especially when AT&T customers have been waiting an extensive amount of time for something other than the ATRIX 2 from last year.
Excerpt: I was pleasantly surprised with Motorola's Atrix 2 last November, but eight months is pretty much an eternity in the Android world, so the Atrix line was in need of a refresh. Motorola and AT&T have teamed up to bring us the Atrix HD, a smartphone that's essentially AT&T's take on Verizon's Droid...
Pros: Near-stock Android 4.0, 720p LCD display, Fast AT&T LTE
Cons: Non-removable battery, Uninspiring design, Only 8GB onboard storage
