Update: The phone sometimes will not ring and go to voice mail; I am not sure why it does that, but one time I was standing by the phone and it went to voice mail.

Update #2: Battery failed after 2 months and ATT is sending me a new one. No connection and missed calls resulted in me having to reset the phone back to factory settings. I love this phone, but have a feeling it is a lemon.
-----------------------

These are my experiences with cell phones:

Up until about 1999, prepaid
1999 to about 2005, flip phone by ATT
2005 to 2008 Motorola Flip Phone V365: I spilled fingernail polish remover in and out this phone and it still turned on and worked the next day, but I decided to UPGRADE
2008 Samsung Eternity - great phone and nobody could hear me
2009 Samsung Impression - great phone and nobody could hear me
2010 - returned to Motorola V365 but I was getting bored so I went back to the Samsung Eternity
2011 - tired of people not being able to hear me I returned to the Motorola V365
Late 2011 - bored with the V365 I order a Samung Double time - nobody could hear me
2012 - returned to the V365 - bored I decided to order the ATRIX2
2012 - I am in love with the ATRIX 2
People can HEAR ME, the battery lasts about 1.5 days. The WI-FI works effortlessly. The internet accessibility and look is just like my Samsung Tablet; when you get ready to hang up, the screen reappears so you can hang up. The Double time screen didn't return so it was hard to hang up at the end of a call

Pros: Battery life; look, ease of use; internet access; wi-fi access; CALL QUALITY IS EXCEPTIONAL

Cons: Fragile; I had it a couple of weeks without a case and it fell and got dinged pretty bad; I immediately went and bought a case; NO OTHER CONS

Would I recommend? YES

ETA: The camera IS GREAT; I took a picture and it looked so gorgeous even my IPHONE co-worker was impression. The reviews state there is a shutter lag; a half a second is not really a lag; the Samsung Tablet has a 3 second lag NOW that is a lag.

I have had it now for 2 weeks.
The good: I find the call quality and volume very good. Having 5 "screens" to customize with widgets has also been a nice touch. Normal business use - including weather and market updates and ~80 mins of calls a day, WiFi connectivity and moderate browsing gives you about 2 days between charges. I purchased it because I wanted something larger than an iPhone and smaller than the HTC and Samsung phones At&T had. I found it very easy to setup for music recording, playback and internet radio. I have another screen dedicated to the cameras, videos and pictures (in custom folders) and 2 "main screens" one that tracks weather at two locations along with useful shortcuts for voice commands and voice searching. The other "main" tracks the markets and 2 time zones (UK and India for me) along with other useful shortcuts. The data management options are a very nice feature - allow you to select pre-configured options for when to defer downloading until a WiFi connection is available. I just wish they made it where you can choose the file size thresholds yourself. That minor annoyance is easy to fix and should be high on their list. Flash is supported and with my moderate usage it has worked fine. Not sure about HTML 5 support.

The bad: Some shortcuts (such as battery level %) are not available and require multi-menu navigation. Placing widgets and items on the screens and moving from one screen to the next is a bit sensitive - but manageable. The buttons on the bottom work best with a stylist - one really should be included. The browser is OK but nothing special. Some screen come up too small to read - but easy to adjust by using the finger spread technique. One annoying "feature" is it keeps prompting to set up a goggle account to manage email accounts and personalization.

Judgement - works fine for me. I've decided its a "keeper" and will not return for another phone. Note - I keep my phone for several years (4+) and do not trade up, although I can do so ever 18 months.

Awesome phone with many great features. I had the Atrix previously, which I thoroughly enjoyed owning; especially with the fimger print reader, unfortunately that was removed and the screen was increased to provide a wider screen and the camera was enhanced to be comparable with today's standard camera technology of 8 MP and 1080p recording. You need to hold the phone still for the camera to be able to take crisp photos; the 1080p video recording has been amazing especially during playback.

Overall, especially for the price, this is a solid cell phone to do everything and anything you want while meeting and exceeding current cellular standards. My only recommendations are to buy a micro SD card so that you may be able to save videos and photos easily; and for Motorola to bring back the fingerprint reader.

With 8M 1080i HD video, 1G dual core CPU, 4G, Bluetooth and WiFi, unlocked at $49, it is a smiling steal! At&t address book is a nice application to have.

I really like this phone. I just have issues with the screen being so touchy. I wish I could turn down the sensitivity of the screen.

Bought this phone around 2 weeks ago... so far great... very nice speed... bought a 32 GB sandisk micro sd card, works great with the card... all applications work nicely, without any problems... copied few gigs of music files in the SD card, connected it with my car speaker, worked immediately... no problem... looks great... feels great... and works great... very happy overall with this phone.

Let me give you the scoop this is a great phone and for the price it is fantastic. The Picture quality in my opinion is more than enough for
a Cell phone. I take plenty of off the cuff pictures with it and use Photo shop to make it look high end. In the end if you want portraits you need
to take you 16 meg camera with you. The Video works great got plenty of kid school function and softball game video's and everyone is impressed with em.
What do I love the most about this phone, I slip it up on my handle bars on my bike cruising down the road and play fantastic Music, If a call comes in
the music dims down and I can make a sweep and answer it hands free or with Blue tooth, Conversation ends it jumps right back to play. GPS is the same way
turn coming up music dims down ladies voice says make turn 100 feet and then back to jamming out. Radio function works great, Get to where I am going and
want to turn a friend on to a new Movie I purchased. I pull out the HDMI cable and plug it into the back of their TV and we are having a great time. This
phone is just that versatile and I have created fans that want it everywhere I go. I upgraded off Ebay with a 4000 ma battery and can go 2 days with out a
charge. You use your standard Charger cause we all live in the world of Lithium Ion batteries with limited discharge and limited charging current. I think
the fact that the Atrix HD has a built in Battery that is non replaceable is the biggest reason I have kept my phone for so long. I just recently bought one
for my wife and she loves it. I recommend it to any and everyone, very configurable, I would bump it up one more notch if Motorola had been smart and gone all
the way to latest Android system with it but ICS is still pretty sweet. Almost forgot, Delete all that junk that ATT wants to stuff in there phones,Keep the
good stuff, go on to Straight Talk and get unlimited Data and talk at 4G connection speeds.

1. No MotoBlur concept. (Can use it if needed)
2. Unlocked bootloader.
3. 8 MP and 1080i Hi Res video with many features not there in the previous version of Atrix.
4. Android 2.3.5 OS comes with many (tonnes)issues fixed/upgraded which were found in previous version of Atrix.
5. Dedicated Camera push hard key.
6. Screen looks awesome and does not need any scratch protector.
7. For 50 Bucks it is a steal and far far better than Iphone or any other phone competing with it.
8. Not sure why this TI OMAP processor based Atrix 2 does not get much publicity and advertisements in the real world because many people do not know about this.

Phone had problems right from the start, from texts not going through or taking up to 10 minutes to go through, to the phone freezing all the time when you try to make a call or use an app, the phone would shut down and reboot by itself, only got as a secondary phone as my main was out for refurbishing and that was a Motorola too. My other issues with the phone that I won't get into. My next phone will definitely not be a Motorola that's for sure this is not the first or second time I have had problems with Motorola , my main cell has got out for refurbishing over 7 times in the past year. Thank God I had Best Buy insurance on it. No more Motorola's for me!!!!!!
