Overview of Motorola ATRIX

Get ready for a taste of the future today with the Motorola ATRIX. Motorola have redefined how we view our smartphone with possibly the most convergent device to date. Leading the industry with an impressive specification, the ATRIX boasts Android 2.2 (with an update to 2.3 scheduled), a powerful and super quick dual-core processor clocked at 2x 1GHz from nVidia and the most memory yet seen in a smartphone at 1GB RAM. With the slick MOTOBLUR interface loaded everything is fast, no more waiting for applications to load!

The key to all this power is that the ATRIX is more than your standard smartphone - hidden behind Android is another complete operating system developed by Motorola called "webtop". By placing the ATRIX into the official 11" Laptop Dock or connecting to an HDMI enabled display via the official Multimedia Hub you can access the webtop OS. This effectively turns the ATRIX into a true workstation providing full web browsing through Firefox with Flash support, complete document creation and editing as well as access to all of the standard Android features and applications available when the phone is not connected. You can even use Citrix to mirror and remotely control a Windows PC.

Even with all this power under the hood, the ATRIX still manages to look great for the style conscious customer. The 4 inch screen has a massive 960 x 540 pixel resolution and is big enough for a top browsing experience without being uncomfortable plus the mottled back cover resembles carbon fibre for added grip. The basics have all been covered very well - take stunning pictures and 720p high definition video with the 5 megapixel camera and LED flashlight and enjoy video calling over wi-fi or data with the front facing VGA camera. The ATRIX will also allow for 1080p playback on a suitable display through the mini-HDMI connection.

For a bit of cool James Bond action, the power button also doubles as a fingerprint reader as seen on many high end laptops. Anyone familiar with recent devices from Motorola will know of the new MOTOBLUR interface running on top of Android making it easier than ever to manage all of your emails, messages and social network updates. Motorola has also ensured DLNA support for multimedia streaming with any of your other compatible devices around the home.

Many modern smartphones struggle to provide enough battery life to maintain their power - Motorola have stepped up to the plate and included a 1930 mAh rechargeable battery with the ATRIX. Even with this large capacity, the device still manages to maintain a slim 117.8 x 63.5 x 10.1 mm profile.

"Hi, this is my review of the Atrix after a day of usage, I just received my unit this morning from clove.

The blur interface sucks, even with the gingerbread 2.3 update, its best to modify the home screen with 3rd party launchers. I am using go launcher ex, and my atrix looks brilliant now.

The interface isn't I-phone smooth, but it's nothing to complain about either. Playing games on the qHD screen feels wicked, the tegra 2 chip set works like a charm.

Despite having a wolfson audio chip inside it, the phone isn't at par with the iphone 4 when it comes to audio playback and loudness. I think the software isn't taking full advantage of the wolfson chip, but still audio output is above average.

The phone actually looks a lot better in real life, than in pictures, it even has a premium feel to it. Camera isn't the best in the market but it won't disappoint either.

Battery drains super fast when playing high end games but still it should last you about a day of usage if you are not a hardcore gamer.

At the end of the day, the Atrix is an amazing phone for £276. The moto blur has it's flaws but that can be fixed with simple software tweaks.

"Just to note Andrew (Russia) gives Atrix a good review, and would recommend to a friend..but forgot to add a star rating..

I don't own an Atrix but have played with one and very impressed at build quality, speed of processor (dual core - so it's the very best), and usual Android operating system excellence. Updates should be available from the Motorola website - if not contact customer services."

"On quality of materials and assemblage it obviously is better than Samsung G2 and HTC Sens.
The screen VERY GOOD the same difference as between TVs Philips and Samsung in favor of Motorola"

"Got it yesterday from Clove, which sells retail en.GB version (that's diffrent from some other places giving you AT&T branded mobile).

The device is great and very comfortable in use. Fingerprint control is really worth its value. Camera and video quality is very good.

Motoblur has some anoyances (for user of HTC Sense), but overall is ok, althrough I still trying to sort out proper process for contact linking.

Unfortunatelly from the start I've faced very serious a problem - random restarts. This issue was quite common with initial US versions and have been rectified by Motorola issuing upgrade to Gingerbread. Unfortunatelly I cannot find such upgrade for Retail.en.GB model.
This problem is really hampering my user experience. I'm eagerly waiting for Gingerbread update, which is supposed to put reliable software on top of already good hardware.

Assuming that update will be available shortly (I don't see a reason why US already got it) I strongly recommend this device."
