The 4G LTE Motorola Atrix HD combines the fast speed of a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor with the thin, but strong, DuPont™ KEVLAR® fiber body. It has a large 4.5-inch HD ColorBoost display that gives you clear, sharp, and crisp images like you would expect to see on a tablet or HD TV. The Atrix runs on the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system and features SMARTACTIONS, a fully integrated, free app that intelligently automates everyday tasks and suggests ways to personalize your smartphone. Based on selections that you make, SMARTACTIONS will optimize your phone’s performance and extend your battery life. The phone also features a rear-facing 8 MP camera and a front-facing 1.3 MP camera.
Available in modern white or titanium, it is stylishly thin at 0.3 inches. The scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass display provides further protection against bumps and bruises. The Motorola Atrix HD has a high-tech, invisible nanocoating that acts as a splash guard and shields against the unexpected splash not only on the outer shell, but on the electrical circuit boards inside.
The free SMARTACTIONS app intelligently automates everyday tasks and suggests ways to personalize your phone to make life easier. You can choose to accept the suggestion, which is based upon the time, place or situation. For example, if you are driving, SMARTACTIONS will suggest Drive Smart, which if selected, would set the phone to automatically launch the simple Vehicle View resulting in auto-reply to incoming calls and texts, enable hands-free conversations, and provide turn-by-turn navigation.
If you are in a meeting and don’t want to be disturbed, SMARTACTIONS will suggest the Meeting Rule, which is based on your calendar and location. Accept this, and your phone silences its ringer and activates auto-text reply, but also selectively lets pre-designated VIP callers through. The application can also improve battery life so it lasts longer between charges. For example, when your battery is running low, it can have your phone dim its display, turn off the GPS and disable background data.
The phone comes with a rear-facing 8 MP camera with 1080p video capture capabilities. In addition, the Atrix HD also has a 1.3 MP front-facing camera and 720HD camcorder for video chats. The 1080p HD video recorder films at 30 fps for smooth playback, just like the pros. With time-lapse video, you can even snap hi-res pics while shooting in HD. Connect an HDMI cable for “mirror mode,” to view your phone images or watch Google Play Movies in HD on the big screen. Or, use Google Play Music to listen to your music library and even songs on iTunes.
The Motorola Atrix HD measures 2.7 x 5.25 x .3 inches, weighs 4.9 ounces, and provides up to 9 hours of 4G talk time (8.5 days of standby time) with the 1780 mAh battery.What's in the Box

What is 4G?
4G is a wireless technology term meaning "Fourth Generation." 4G follows 3G as the latest addition to AT&T's mobile broadband network. When combined with enhanced backhaul, 4G means faster speeds, where data transfers take less time to complete. AT&T has upgraded the software of its nationwide mobile broadband network with HSPA+ which, with enhanced backhaul, enables speeds up to 4x faster than AT&T's already fast mobile broadband speeds. And now, AT&T is evolving to even faster 4G speeds with the launch of AT&T's 4G LTE technology in select markets.
Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.
How does AT&T 4G differ from other 4G networks?
AT&T is the only network offering two layers of 4G technology: HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul and LTE, both capable of delivering 4G speeds. Customers will have access to fast speeds as they move in and out of 4G LTE areas. Customers of competitors who do not have HSPA+ with enhanced backhaul are likely to see a steep drop-off in speeds when they move out of LTE areas.
In areas where either AT&T's 3G or 4G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways.
Optional AT&T Services

You'll be able to find the closes ATM, restaurant, gas station, Wi-Fi hotspot and more with over 10 million business listings.

Android 4.1: Jelly Bean
This device is upgradeable to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, packed with features to help you tackle your busy day. Jelly Bean improves on the simplicity and beauty of Android 4.0 and introduces a new Google Search experience. No matter what life throws your way, your phone helps you stay one step ahead.
What's New and Cool
What you need to know, before you have to ask - Once you opt in, Google Now tells you today's weather before you start your day, how much traffic to expect before you leave for work, when the next train will arrive as you're standing on the platform, or your favorite team's scores while they're playing. And the best part? All notifications are generated automatically and in real-time, before you even have to ask.
Google Voice Search: A new way to search - Need an answer fast? Now you can just speak your question directly to your phone. "Do I need an umbrella today?" "Where is the nearest gym?" Your phone will speak back the answer, or run a quick search to get you exactly the info you need.
Notifications you can act on - Now you can take action directly from the notifications shade. Late for a meeting? E-mail everyone to let them know. Missed a call? Call them back in an instant. And because they're expandable, you can get an even deeper look into the things that matter most, like multiple e-mails or photos on Google+.

CONS: non-removable battery, camera not so good in low light(even with flash on), uh...it's not free
I get a good discount on AT&T for being an LSU student, so I am sort of locked into AT&T. After scoping out the market at looking at my measly student budget, I decided that I would not pay more than $50 for a new phone. There are a few good AT&T smart phones out there for $50 or less such as the Nokia Lumia 900, Motorola Atrix HD, and LG Nitro HD which was free (at Best Buy's website with 2-year contract). The lowest price I found for the Lumia 900 was $19.99 and the Atrix HD was $49.99. I feel like all 3 of these phones are great for the money. Another phone that I liked for $49.99 was the Sony Xperia Ion, mostly because I love the look of it, but after doing further research I decided that the Sony was style over substance. Check the specs. It's basically the old LG Nitro HD with a better camera and more internal storage. But the LG is free.
The Lumia 900 looked really nice and has positive reviews all over the web, but I really like all the apps on the Android market, and I'm not sure I'm ready to try Windows on a phone yet. The LG Nitro HD is possibly the best free smartphone on the market for AT&T. It has similar features to popular Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket except with a nice HD screen and less internal storage. And it's free. However, I did not choose the Nitro because I felt an extra $50 was worth it to get a phone with much better hardware and a better operating system.
The Motorola Atrix HD is fast. I mean really fast. The internet blazes on the LTE network, and the software rarely ever lags.Read more ›
Screen looks great, although it can be a little bit bright. The SD card slot was a bit of a pain until I realized I had to turn off phone to add a new SD card. Worked immediately afterwards. The phone doesn't feel cheap, except for the sim and SD card slot door. I switched from an iPhone 4.
With that being said, the HD really IS a great phone...in my time selling AT&T phones I don't think ANY phone has sold as many as the HD has...and by quite a large margin. Its easy to see why with Android 4.0 right out of the box and a starting price of $49.99 (with most authorized carriers) it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to discover why so many are out there. However, I feel compelled to point out that a rather large number have come back to our store with disturbing problems, a large variety in fact. From just going dead to the phone literally bricking itself (which I've never previously heard of), there seems to be an abnormally large number of problems with this device.Read more ›
The most telling problem about the Atrix HD is that the wifi antennae is KNOWN to be poor, but neither AT&T nor Motorola will offer any suggestions or fixes, and if the constant dropping of viable wifi signals or refusing to connect costs you money because it consistently connects to 4G when it shouldn't have to? Oh well.
As of writing this review, my Atrix HD has, without any exaggeration, had no wifi connection for a week. A literal solid 7 day or greater period with little or no wifi connection. My computer, 3DS, and other devices connect just fine. There has been no explanation as of yet. This has caused it to intermittently connect to 4G to update everything in one guy.
Furthermore, the battery has been slowly draining quicker and quicker. After a 6 hour workday with occasional checking of facebook, texts, e-mail, etc. at work, it would normally end the day at about 45-50% battery. Now, I find it a rare occasion where the same instance with the same number of apps and settings doesn't leave me at 1-2%. Again, no explanation was offered and it is well before time for an upgrade.
In short, this phone is NOT worth the hassle. Anyone trying to upsell you on it as an upgrade is likely blowing smoke to move stock of a crummy model.
