Motorola ATRIX 2 unboxing

0. phoneArena 18 Oct 2011, 22:24 posted on

Not surprisingly, the packaging of the Motorola ATRIX 2 seemingly follows accordingly to all other smartphones for AT&T, which is of course donning that all too peculiar white, orange, and blue colors to associate it with AT&T...

Spec-wise, this is a great phone yet somehow it bores me. Probably the design. Looks too generic.

Agreed. It's just too redundant. Android is a great Operating System but when phones are released so many times in one year with very incremental upgrades, it just becomes "just another Android phone".

wow, what was the price without additional charges? and did you upgrade, or add a new line or start a new contract or what?

rating? 8.5? It shouldn't get lower than an 8, im getting this phone, what a great price, it's only $50 at walmart, does anyone not recommend getting phones at walmart? because I usually find the lowest prices there, and this is the only retailer which sells it for $50 when upgrading in a family plan.

Accessories I suppose. Dock and hd station and so on.

Ahh I see, i'm pretty sure it can't use the atrix 4g's dock because of its increased size, but im quite sure that vice-versa works because the new lapdock 100 is supposed to work with all devices that are capable of using a lapdock. As for other accessories, such as blue tooth headsets, those should work..

Anyone who buys this phone will love GB 2.3.5 - I currently run KJ3 on my cappy - I get 2k Quadrant scores - it is like a new phone.

This phone and the original Atrix sound almost the same! Besides, the original Atrix was released just earlier this year!!!

I got one yesterday

It is much improved
faster connection
RGB screen better than the bleak screen of the Atrix 1
More responsive snappier overall experience using the keyboard and screen, less mistake

It is a honey of a cell
A year after #1 still one of the best phone out there
(I also have an Atrix 1 for personnal use)

What is the criteria of "much better"? Because looking at the specs alone, they're quite similar. Normally you'd expect the second iteration of a device to be vastly superior.

If specs were all there is to be Samsumg would have the best cell phones
I have had only problems with Samsungs

This is a terrific phone, superior to the Atrix 1 in every respect that I still have
I will be using Atrix 2 for business

As I am getting more familiar with the Atrix 2 I am asking myself: why one, right now, should spend $300.00 on a cell phone when he can get an Atrix 2 for $100.00? This phone is close to perfection. I would wait for the quad phones next year.
