Summary: old phone yet reliable and soon to be updated to kit kat software. the phone needs to be rooted to remove the manufacturer's bloatware. despite that, the phone is good and handy, though not the same as the droid razr feel, and fast.
"Would be great except for a couple crucial things...."
2 December 2013
Pros: Excellent specs, comparable to more pricier phones in its class. Nice display and very nice camera for recording HD videos. Not too bad on the bloatware. Motorola's stock app included called "Smart Actions" is a nice feature for optimal customization
Cons: The battery life is horrible! I mean bad, bad! Non-removable battery = poor choice design! Holding the phone to watch videos is awkward because of its size. The external speaker could sound better in my opinion, especially playing music through it.
Pros: Features are amazing, it is light, vivid screen and pretty durable except the battery
Cons: Battery life terrible, hard to replace, cannot be removed without tools. Charging problems are commonplace (check forums) Sometimes freezes when background bloatware loads. When charging, touch screen randomly gets uncalibrated and cannot be used.
Summary: Do not buy this phone has no parts, if battery dies or digitizer breaks throw it. The digitizer is 299 USD itself and a new phone is 254USD. All its parts are rare in market and very expensive. Do not do this mistake I bought it and sold it quick, since no parts for it.
Very good phone but silly and annoying AT&T software
25 January 2013
Summary: This is an awesome cell phone, but AT&T doesn't let you turn off 4G because of that shockingly witless AT&T software. There are a lot of features which ones can't be used on atnt version. The only solution to avoid these things is reflashing with a custom rom. With this "can'tbeturnedoff" 4G the battery is dead after 10-11 hours (without playing any games..
Summary: The smartphone has an excellent HD screen, but slightly wide frame around. Body materials (plastic) is not very high quality - it's cheap. We Atrix 2 back cover I like more. The battery is very weak, Atris HD needs battery 2500mAh.
Summary: I had an Atrix 4G before. After using the Atrix HD for one week, I desided to go back to the Atrix 4G because: 1. The battery dains much faster, and even before one day of use. 2. The four buttons in the very bottom are replaced with three buttons and put ino the actual screen, so decreasing the available area in the screen. Thus the screen is not really 4.5 inches. When compared with Atrix 4G; screen hight does not change, only the width changes a bit.
