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)
Pros: Awesome dual core phone with excellent performance and battery life. Laptop dock is a unique innovation. Fast, reliable 4G radio. Gorilla Glass screen is sensitive, yet tough as nails. MicroSDHC slot for adding to the 16GB of standard storage. Fingerprint reader is fun at pa0rties.
Cons: Laptop dock is costly and not all that well-designed. HDMI dock is an expensive add-on that does nothing special. Motoblur and Webtop are love-them-or-hate-them affairs. Hot spot use requires you to buy the most expensive data plan.
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.
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.
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.
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.
