Great phone for a good price
on October 26, 2011
decent android phone for a reasonable price; have been using is since Oct17th. never had a problem. Battery life is good up to this point, I am texting and surfing most of the time, wireless and background data are on, at the end of the day, when I get back to home, battery remains 20~30%. camera is impressive havent used that much however outdoor trials came out as good as a point and shoot camera. it is really a fast phone; never had a crashing problem yet, it runs smooth and fast.
couple issue that may concern a buyer; not having headphones and mini hdmi cable included in the retail package. glad to have a front camera option however skype video talking didn't work on the phone (waiting skype* to include this phone in video talking portfolio). the shortcut touch buttons at the bottom of the screen doesn't illuminate sometimes (light sensor might be the reason).
Update @Nov22, it has been a month and still enjoying to use this android phone; just had one issue tho; upgraded the micro sd to 16gb however it didnt work well on Atrix2, i just realized that after taking images and noticed them not being saved in the "dcim" folder. as far as I can tell, it is a hardware problem on the microsd card; since I scan it with windows and found some errors on the card; the 2gb came with the phone still works well.
update @Jan25, The microsd card issue is not happening, anymore. I had returned the damaged microsd card and purchased a more reliable brand from amazon.com. It has been working as expected. I had been experiencing battery life issue since I switched to 16gb microsd card tho. I am not sure it is the usage or the higher capacity microsd is the main reason; havent change the usage significantly.
*update @May07, about skype, it has been available for a while, I just forgot to update; now the video chat is available with atrix 2. Battery life is still good, enough for more than a day.
