Conclusion: There’s a lot to like about the Motorola Atrix HD – especially for the price. Unfortunately, most of that likability only goes skin-deep. This isn’t the phone to get if you’re allergic to lag, because this phone’s software gets mired in molasses more often than it should. One of our team members put it rather succinctly when he said “I really want to love this phone, because I love everything else about the build, but the software is killing me.
Pros: Hearty build quality with splash protection, Ultra-high pixel density display, Useful UI enhancements, Very fast LTE speeds, Better-than-expected battery life, Good call quality
Cons: -tag fun for you., The Atrix HD is widely available and can be had for $99.99 on AT&T’s website – with a 2-year contract, of course. Oddly, that’s the same cost as its older sibling, the Atrix 2. The new Atrix also shares that price point with the Samsung Galaxy S II (Skyrocket and non-). The full retail price is a fairly standard $449.99.
Conclusion: The Motorola Atrix HD may not be the absolute best performer, and definitely has its quirks, but for someone looking for a smartphone in the $100 price range, it's pretty tough to beat. For that price you get a 720p display, a speedy Snapdragon S4 processor, and the closest thing to stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich that you can find on an AT&T smartphone.
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. Call quality is tops as are data speeds and the phone is fast thanks to ICS and the Qualcomm S4 CPU.
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. For $100 with a two-year contract, the Atrix HD is almost as good as the iPhone 4S, Galaxy S3, and HTC One X. And in this case, “almost” isn’t a bad tradeoff for an extra $100 in your pocket.
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
Summary: — but that's not at all the case with the Atrix HD. Its a homely device and the camera disappoints, but Motorola didn't spend time making the Atrix HD pretty — it spent time making it work. It's still an Android 4.0 phone with LTE, a 720p LCD display, and fast performance.
Pros: Near-stock Android 4.0, 720p LCD display, Fast AT&T LTE
Cons: Non-removable battery, Uninspiring design, Only 8GB onboard storage
Excerpt: The Motorola Atrix HD belongs to a new breed of smartphones with large high-definition screens, 4G LTE networking technology, and superbly long battery life. It runs the latest version of Android software for smartphones and packs a lot of great hardware in a sleek and mostly ergonomic package. And best of all, it comes with a variety of modern wireless features that will allow any user to easily enjoy the best of what the Internet has to offer.
