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
AT&T Navigator: This premium GPS navigation application includes audible turn-by-turn directions, real-time traffic updates and re-routing options, and 3D moving maps (additional charges applicable). AT&T Navigator offers several other features to make your commute more enjoyable and reliable, including mobile access to Yellowpages.com. You'll be able to find the closes ATM, restaurant, gas station, Wi-Fi hotspot and more with over 10 million business listings.
AT&T FamilyMap: Locate any phone indoors or outdoors on the AT&T Network. FamilyMap provides peace of mind by being able to conveniently locate a family member from your wireless phone or PC and know that your family's information is secure and private. Want to verify that your child arrives home from school each day? Set up a Schedule Check to automatically get location information sent to you via text message or e-mail.
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+.

Top Customer Reviews
1. It has great build quality. Not as sexy as the OneX but much better than the GS3.
2. It has the same S4 processor.
3. A beautiful screen. GS3 owners should be jealous. For me it's hard to tell the difference with the HTC OneX.
4. Expandable memory. I have a 32GB card in it now.
5. Benchmarks are on par if not higher than some on the OneX and GS3
6. A dedicated HDMI out port.
7. I also have to agree with Jerry about the nearly pure ICS experience. The few UI tweaks are the best I have seen so far.
8. For a limited time at&t gives you a Motorola Car Dock for free. It's built specifically for this phone and it's worth at least $40.
9. I really like the Circles app and the information it provides.
10. The rear speaker is the best I have heard on any phone period! It's a beast.
11. There is a setting for the video camera that is for concerts. I'm looking forward to trying this out. I see a lot of live music and every Android phone I have used the audio is so distorted I can't watch the video. I'm looking forward to seeing how this performs. I'll try it out this weekend.
12. Speaking of sound, calls sound great.
13. I really enjoy swiping up on some of the apps to get a quick look at calls, messages, calendar, etc..
1. Sealed battery like the OneX. I was aware and already keep chargers in the car, at home and at work.
2. It gets quite hot if you are doing a lot of work.
3. It's easy to cover the camera with your finger.

HW is on par with the OneX and G3, with a price point of $49. Its not perfect, but for that kinda dough its a steal.
1. Great display. Very crisp.
2. HDMI out. Connect this to a TV and the picture quality is awesome.
3. Despite some bloatware (see below), the UI is simple and clean. Close to stock android.
4. Circle Widget is cool. Best feature is the data usage monitor.
5. HW specs are awesome for this price point!!
6. Responsiveness. I carry this phone for my runs, using Endomondo to track time/speed/distance and listen to music. Works great.
7. Use this phone for navigation in the car and streaming audio. Works great.
8. Car Dock is nice along with the Drive Smart app.
9. Download speeds are very very fast (LTE).
9. Did I mention the price?
1. Bloatware. Could do without the ATT apps. Not a big deal, just need to "disable" them and they dont show up in the tray.
2. Battery a bit small, but getting thru a full day usage. Expect that with this size display and LTE, battery will be eaten up a bit more quickly. (The display eats up battery, so be careful about keeping display on too long when not using.)
3. A bit large, but am getting use to it. This would be the max size I would go though.
4. Camera is OK. That being said, i don't buy the phone for the camera.
5. 1G RAM. Not too much of con. For $49, i don't expect all high-end HW. So far, 1GB is handling my needs.
Will provide updates as I use it more.
-- Battery live is not so great even while using Smart Action app that turns different functions On or Off based profile or location.
-- Camera quality is not up to current standards for 8mp. Pictures are not sharp and the only way to improve them is to use custom filters or different exposure but even that doesn't help much.
-- GPS is the best i've seen in smart phones in the last few years. So far i was using it non-stop few hours a day for the last 5 days while driving and it hasn't lost signal or location even once.
-- Call quality including speaker phone is very good and clear.
PROS: good call quality, fast responsive interface, excellent price, Android 4.0 OS, durable construction, pretty HD screen
CONS: non-removable battery, camera not so good in low light(even with flash on), 8GB of internal storage is a little low, 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 and 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.Read more ›
