Excerpt: Bundled with a pack of ten free EA games, the Motorola Atrix 2 caters to casual gamers with its multimedia-friendly hardware features like a dual-core 1GHz processor, 1GB RAM and 4.3-inch qHD screen. We bring you the verdict on its performance in this review.
Pros: Bundled with 10 free EA games, MotoCast Personal Cloud Service, Good battery life, Bright 4.3-inch qHD touchscreen
Cons: Poor camera performance, Comes with Android 2.3 (update coming in Q3 2012)
Conclusion: The Motorola Atrix is a solid Android smartphone that’s easy to get to grips with and provides a great web browsing experience. The camera isn’t as amazing as those found on rival smartphones, but it does the job. A lot of what makes the Motorola Atrix really stand out from the pack is down to the extra functionality offered by the Lapdock and HD Multimedia docks - for reasons of space we’ve published separate articles on both of them here and here.
Excerpt: All the high-end phones coming out these days match up pretty closely on features. So how about something totally different — a phone that doubles as the guts for a full-sized laptop? The Motorola Atrix is a 4G Android phone for AT&T that performs well enough on its own, but it’s also available with one crazy-unique accessory: a laptop-shaped dock.
Motorola Atrix review: A fast and powerful Android smartphone that includes a few nifty features like a fingerprint reader

10 December 2011
Summary: The Motorola Atrix doesn't stray too far from the norm once you look past its dual-core processor and fingerprint reader, but it is a slick, super-fast Android phone with good battery life. Anyone after a new Android phone with a big screen should definitely consider the Atrix; we just hope Motorola gives Atrix users the latest Android updates.
Pros: Slick and fast user experience, HDMI-out, Good build quality and battery life
Cons: Screen is hard to see in sunlight, Touch-sensitive buttons, No word on Gingerbread update
Excerpt: At first glance, Motorola 's first dual-core handset doesn't look that special. It's on the bulky side at 118x64x11mm and 135g and compared to the likes of the slimline Samsung Galaxy S II it looks like a bit of a throwback to a less stylish age. There is, however, a lot more to the Atrix than first impressions. For one thing the power button on the top doubles as a biometric fingerprint security pad.
Summary: The Atrix is a capable smartphone that is well manufactured and has a good user interface. It offers good performance and battery life, and the MotoBlur overlay makes getting and responding to email, and social networking site updates, quick and easy. The combination of the Motorola’s Atrix smartphone with the Lapdock docking station is a novel offering that lets users access phone functions and a limited selection of applications on the Lapdock.
Pros: Good battery life; MotoBlur service offers good workflow with social networking and Google mail sites; Lapdock gives mobile users better document and media-creation options.
Cons: No network connectivity in Lapdock, which would allow it to be used standalone; Android OS version (2.2 – Froyo) is not the latest.
