Motorola ATRIX 2 Review

0. phoneArena posted on 24 Oct 2011, 09:30

Can you believe that it has been only 9 months since our eyes first feasted upon the Motorola ATRIX 4G and its innovative qualities back at CES? Fortunately for all of us, Motorola is quick to pump out its successor in a timely manner as the Motorola ATRIX 2 is happily finding its niche on AT&T’s lineup right now. What’s especially enticing about the ATRIX 2, unlike some of its rivals, is the simple fact that it’s only sporting a manageable $99.99 on-contract price point...

SNIGGLY, I agree with you man. The fingerprint scanner is a deal breaker for me with this ATRIX line... Mine has never had an issue an I love the UI... Once I updated from Froyo to GingerBread, I was FLYING!!! I Love the ATRIX2( except for the lack of a FingerPrint scanner)... The change to the newer device was just too incremental for me to jump at it. The increase from 4 to 4.3 inches in screen size is not enough & bareley noticeable... The processor is identical on both devices... I already get spectacular video out of my ATRIX with only 5 MP and 720 HD video recording.

I'm not a professional photographer nor do I produce professional photographs, so I would not really benefit much from the increase from 5 MP to 8 MP
Actually losing the FingerPrint scanner and losing the available on board memory is enough for me to feel like my device is better than the newer ATRIX2.

How you even rate this phone on-par with GSII.

Your score card is somehow getting me confused.
Can someone shed more light to this?

@Martine - or, to extend the ridiculous, how does the Atrix 2 manage to even be in the same ball park as say, the new Nexus Prime or RAZR? Answer - it has a $99 starting price point on contract.

The starting price point appears to be a thumb on the scale of review scoring.

What if the BB Bold 9900/9930 had been released with a $99 starting price point? Would it have scored a 9?

No, because blackberry sucks(in mine, and most other peoples opinion). This is a really nice smartphone for $99, and it is one of the best out, what is there not to get?

it's a great phone. Good screen, GPS works unlike Samsung Gs2... Great battery life. Can't beat it with any other Android smart phone.

How can this be a top-of-the-line experience when the call quality is seriously lacking? Does that mean price trumps actual useable features? Well, not for me. I'll keep looking, thanks.

Have had my Atrix 2 for a couple of weeks and really like the phone. Unfortunately, the reason I bought it was that I could get a lapdock to extend it. Was really excited! Motorola has COMPLETELY screwed me over on my order with no resolution in sight after almost three weeks. I really caution anyone about buying this from Motorola. Try a different product from a different provider.
