Summary: I did a lot of research before purchasing this phone. I was disappointed with it. It started having problems with receiving images via text, then started dropping calls. I changed carriers, thinking it was the carrier. I got a new chip installed and reset the phone. The fixes only worked for a short time and then it began having problems again. Each time I got a new chip and reset the phone, and each time the fix lasted for less and less time.
Summary: This phone is slow, there's a delay in response to the buttons I push. Sometimes it won't open quick enough to answer a call. I only have a few apps downloaded so over loading is not the problem. My sister bought the same phone through her service provider and it's reacting the same way. I think it has a bug, Some features take turns to fail. (ie: text notifications, camera, video) This phone is crap!
Summary: It is an okay phone for the price you pay for it. I don't think it is available anymore from carriers. I found that the phone battery life is terrible, and the processing speed sub-par (I tried playing games, and some did not run well). It could not even handle an additional software to correct your typos (Swiftkey, made the phone slow significantly). The group text messaging and a few other programs were problematic.
Summary: We purchased this early Jan 2014. We had a lot of trouble getting it working. First of all the SIM card from the previous Atrix did not work in it. This has a small SIM card. They cut the SIM card with a special tool at phone company. So, you cannot go back the previous phone easily. We had a lot of trouble since we found out that the phone does not work after the SIM card was cut. It was a nightmare. We could not go back to previous phone.
Junk. Terrible screen, badly crippled OS, and slow.

Summary: The screen is the worst problem, it's like there was no function testing of the screen at all before the phone was put into production. Sensitivity of the screen is way off, the slightest touch registers as a click, thus scrolling is nearly impossible, every time you touch the screen to scroll it clicks on whatever is there. I've read some complaints where people have had the phone click with their finger simply near the screen surface.
Pros: The phone is pretty durable. The phone can be flexed and bent, without the screen shattering. In an Otterbox the phone can survive quite a throw. I've learned this due to the incredible amount of frustration I've had with this phone.
Cons: Everything else. Screen is incredibly over sensitive, except near the edges where it's not sensitive at all. Battery lasts a day at idle, half that with moderate use. Phone often becomes slow and unresponsive, and needs to be restarted frequently.
