    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.

    I spent many years selling phones for Bestbuy as well as for Alltel on the corporate side. I have also worked selling phones third party for many companies. My expectations for phones are pretty high. That being side I got this as a free upgrade at Bestbuy last Sunday. This is an amazing piece of hardware and a really usuable phone.

    PROS
    *Very responsive and stable. I was a bit wary going back to an Android phone. So far it has been amazing. I experience pretty instant responses.
    *I love the screen it is clear and crisp and the touch response is amazing.
    *The apps are great. While keeping an eye on the Amazon daily free app you can build a decent collection of apps. Also all the heavy hitters are here just like on the Iphone.
    *It has an expandable SD slot for up to 32gb’s. This is something that both the Apple and current Windows phones lack.
    *I love Zumocast the streaming app provided through Motorola. As well as the software interface. I have yet to play with the lapdock yet. Though I am seriously considering getting one for the lightweight aspect. I go to school and want something to take notes on. Lugging a laptop, books, and various supplies gets tiresome.
    *Ability to easily setup to connect to wifi in your constant haunts. With the data prices set by At&t this makes a huge difference. It is also very flexible in setting up data saving abilities.

    CONS
    *I find it annoying that Motorola couldn’t give us the HDMI cable with the phone or a bigger SD card. These items cost very little for the OEMs. I do know that often phone companies restrict it so they can upsell their overpriced accessories. It also makes the third party dealers happy to be able to do the same thing.
    *The camera is good but not great I was hoping for a bit more. Though by no means is it unusable. This is definitly a higher end phone even amongst smartphones. This should have gotten a little more love.
    *These aren’t the phones fault (AT&T garbage apps some of which are not deletable & AT&T’s money grubbing data plans are just plain evil.)

    All in all it has been a long time since I have truly loved a phone. This phone is indeed one of those purchases that you rave about. Motorola knocked it out of the park on this one. I have had more phones then I can remember and have dealt with about everything on the market. This is truly a best of show type item. Android is coming along really nicely. Not locked down like the Iphone which is a great welcome to the smartphone world introduction. It is also great for those who just want a flashy phone that works. The Iphone truly excels at that. The new Windows Mango is also a great OS for phones. The turn off for me was the lacking hardware and pricing compared to the Androids. They just didn’t offer the same value. Blackberry is dying a slow painful death in my opinion which is sad. They like Palm were once the pinnacle of what it meant to put out a stellar product.

    In summation Motorola you really outdid yourself with this one.

    This review is from: Motorola Atrix 2 4G Android Phone (AT&T) (Wireless Phone)

    I discovered this phone when Amazon did their 1 cent promo. ( That was for new customers only and not upgrade customers so I got mine at Best Buy for FREE on Black Friday.. But $49 is still a steal for this phone) I promptly called my android fanatic brother who informed me that it is basically the Droid Bionic that costs $299 with contract. I read the reviews and decided to take the leap from Iphone 4 to this Atrix 2. I have been longing for a larger screen for a while now, but didn’t want to spend $ to switch and I love the iphone! But, this deal got me to switch. Nothing compares to the iphone. That is a different beast altogether. My main thing was I wanted one of those 4.3 inch screens! This fits the deal. It is a gorgeous screen. I’m still getting used to google ( Android ) but it’s a learning curve and so far worth it. With google music, it takes all of your newest itunes music ( the DRM free music that has been $1.29 on itunes basically ) and your cd’s that you may have uploaded to itunes and transfers them to google music and their cloud. Unlike itunes cloud this one is free! So far it is wonderful! No memory is taken up on my Atrix 2. It works with my Ford Sync bluetooth and sounds good. You are also not dealing with the behemoth itunes program! Everything is connected through a google email account which a lot of us already have or you just make a new one. This phone has the latest and greatest Android phone offerings ( dual core processor, 1 gb of ram ,qHD non pentile display ( higher resolution than the Bionic!) and Gingerbread 2.3. I love the fit and finish of this particular Motorola phone vs the Bionic and such. It has a high quality feel and look to it. The size is very slim and because you don’t have that Verizon LTE battery hogger, the battery lasts almost as long as my iphone 4. It also doesn’t have that annoying bump at the top backside like the Bionic or X! In fact it is not much larger than the iphone 4 and it has that nice 4.3 inch screen! It only comes with 8gb of onboard memory and a 2gb card. I got a 32gb one that I installed without formatting, so the phone seemed to have issue with it but it seems to be fine now. This phone has AT&T’s HSPA + network which they call 4g. It is a kinda of bridge between 3g and 4g. This is a perfect compromise right now because the 4g LTE phones out there are battery killers and they are larger! Also, the iphone still sports just 3g! Holy crap, I just realized how long this review is!

    So.. If you want a large screen nice phone get this one!

    Oh yea, I forgot to mention the camera… It’s got the specs ( 8 megapixel, 1080p video recording ) , but it is not that great. It takes a while to snap a shot and make sure you hold the phone still. There is a front facing vga camera too. But the pictures are ok though.. not a deal breaker for me. I still love this phone!
