This may be one of the best smart phones on the market. The Android OS works well. It has almost an unlimited number of apps. Don't care for the Motorola Blur, I think it is a waste of space on the device. Most everything one can do on a computer, one can do it on this phone plus some things you can't do on a computer. Even has an HDMI output. The number one negative about this phone is the short battery life. With all the power this phone has, I do not understand why Motorola can not put a longer lasting battery in it. I do not spend a lot of time using this phone, but it barely makes it through a day without charging it again. Some energy monitor apps help. One can also turn off bluetooth and wifi when not needed to save energy. I purchsed two phones at the same time and one had the 2.3... version and the other had only the 2.2... version. The 2.3... is much better. Of course you can download the 2.3... But if you have a choice get it with the 2.3.. It takes a while to download the update. Had it not been for the poor battery performance this phone would have received 5 stars.

I've had 2 and they are both lemons! The screen near the top stops working very quickly. It sometimes works but usually doesn't. DON'T BUY THIS PHONE!!

Shortly after my warranty expired (though from researching on owner forums, it's clear the warranty is worthless anyway), the problems started. I realized I was burning through my data plan, then found it was because my wireless internet was not working. When trying to connect, it would simply say Error. This is a common problem with this phone. Customer support walked me through wiping my phone, which did nothing. They then offered to "look at it" for $120. I declined the ridiculously inadequate offer, and then my phone started getting worse. It now powers off and back on several times an hour. This drains the battery quickly, and I need to charge it every chance I get. It seems like any interaction makes the phone power down. It's no longer good for phone calls, because it is guaranteed to power off mid-conversation. The problems I'm describing are very common for this phone, and no one I've talked to in forum has gotten any help from Motorola, with or without warranty. Please research Motorola's inferior products before buying.

I enjoy this phone. I was about to finally by the next iPhone (never bought an iPhone yet) , yet it never came out and will be extremely expensive compared to android phones. Through amazon you can by this phone and lots of accessories for much less than an iPhone.

This phone is nice because it is extremely thin, yet is has all of the hardware, and 4" high resolution screen. The phone is extremely fast and i can view regular webpages without having to zoom.

I was upset at first that msn did not have any apps to run their software. They clearly want you to by a windows phone. Soon after I learned that the live mobile website works great and I do not need their app, and all of the office compatible products read all of my office documents.

The android market is great. First you have a choice of buying at retail price from apple or downloading the amazon android market for amazon prices.

Since I am in the Architecture profession I wish Google would bring out a sketch up app for an android phone or at least a 3d model viewer.

I purchased this phone on February 28 to replace my IPhone 3G. It took a few days to get used to it but it has been well worth it! I love the freedom to make the phone work the way YOU want it to. The ability to create your own home screen is fantastic. The call quality is great and the volume of the speaker is excellent. The Atrix is super fast, I mean incredibly fast, I was truly impressed with the speed of this phone. I still have a lot to learn about this phone and so far every day I have learned something new. I was able to transfer itunes music and my photos easily. The only problem I have had is when ATT transferred my contacts the addresses did not get transferred, I am still trying to figure out why that happened. If you are use to the Android platform this phone would be a natural transition, if you are use to the Iphone it will take some getting use to but the rewards are well worth it!

Okay,I'm coming from an iphone 3G to the Atrix so let's go apples for apples (pun intended). Screen: rocks, qHD gives a nice clean image that is bright enough to see in bright sunlight (I work outdoors). 24 hours after I received and activated mine, I got a UI update that gave the screens a little more usable space and new ouptions (3 profiles you can customize, new menus and an overall cleaner look). I kept mine stock (MOTOBLUR enabled, but I don't use it). Camera : crisp clean pics that look great; zoom is so-so but lightyears ahead of iphone. Browser is great (Flash is COOL). Most of the apps I had on my iphone, paid and what-not, I found in the market, most are free; also the UI update allows Amazon appear so that's cool. Overall I am far more impressed with the ease of how the ATRIX integrates with my work and play. Oh yeah, battery life is just as good as with my iphone, after I ran it completely down then charged overnight. I really like this phone, so much I'm writing this review on it.

For $50-$100, you can't go wrong with this phone. I think the price was dropped on this phone early because of it's lack of Gingerbread (Android's latest mobile operating system). Now that the Gingerbread update has been rolled out, the Atrix has gotten rid of the glitches it had when it first came out (random reboots, problems with playing WMA's). For anyone looking for a smartphone, you really can't beat this for the price. The Atrix has better specs than most higher priced Android phones, with 1ghz dual core processor and 1gb of RAM (Droid X2 only has 512mb of RAM. it's a very fast set. Also 16gb of onboard storage plus a micro SD slot that supports up to 32gb of extra storage, makes the phone a great replacement for an ipod or mp3 player. In conclusion, The Atrix is a very nice and fast phone, I would reccomend it to anyone... and with Tiny Shark (Grooveshark) on it, you have all the music you could ever want on it. (Sorry iphone users. Apple won't let you have a Grooveshark app)(:

I purchased It yesterday at Fry's. Coming from a Iphone 3g and 3 gs, I was not sure what to expect. But I purchased this phone since It was a great deal and didn't want to pay $199 for a Iphone 4. The 24 hours I have had this phone has blown away my expectations:

First the Positives:

1. Great Fit and Finish and holds well. Perfect size. Not to big or small.

2. I had the phone up and running in about 10 minutes including setting up the Motoblur account

3. Smooth experience in setting up email accounts, saving contacts from SIM.

4. Testing and sending emails is a breeze

5. It is blazingly fast.

6. After 24 hrs of moderate use (sending a few texts, emails, browsing the web) the battery is at 90%. In comparison my Iphone 3GS would be at about 50% level.


It does not look fashionable compared to Iphone 4 since this is all black and plastic. But It is sleek and conservative in looks.

In conclusion, I love this phone,

The Atrix 4g is an amazing phone. I baffle everyone when i show them the fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone :D. The phone has some really great features like the dual core and Moto blur. Motorola made a really big home run here and im kinda surprised they dont make it anymore! I currently do not have the phone right now cause the screen digitalizer started to fail and most of the screen didnt work anymore. I wouldnt blame the phone im 15 and its been abused pretty bad. Customer service is great at motorola. The lady over the phone is replacing the screen for free under the defect warranty. Im really glad they did that cause 1 it was not a defect and 2 i dont have money for a repair but anyway its repair is in process and i cant wait to have my screen back! If your gonna buy this phone you will definitely not regret it because its overall a really responsive, vibrant, and powerful phone.
