KitKat / 4.4.2

Am having lots of problems obtaining an LTE signal on 4.1. Battery life also drains very quickly to 1%, then stays at 1% for up to a couple hours. Anyone know if and when this device is slated to receive KitKat?
Still waiting on the KitKAt update. Sad
But in the meantime you MUST do the Battery MOD for your Atrix HD. I install an EB40 battery from the RAZR MAXX. It'll give you 3-4 times longer battery life. Depending how much you use the phone.

Camera Quality, what's wrong?

I keep reading that the camera isn't that great, but no details as to why. Is it picture quality, the application that is used to take the pictures??? Can anyone who has the phone, or tested it in person, tell me what the "Issue" with the camera is?

Speakphone- Half Dulpex?


If they included a full-duplex speakerphone, that might have pushed the price point above what they wanted. This was meant to be a kind of cost-cutting device.
whats the diff between half and full?

no Lapdock / Webtop

Unfortunately, we've rec'd confirmation from Motorola that the Atrix HD does not include the Webtop software and therefore won't work with the Lapdock accessories. It's a price issue; it's one way they got the price down to $99 (on contract.)

It's still a very high-spec consumer device, but for those looking for that particular business feature, the Atrix 2 might be a better choice.
Confused were there many people that actually used the laptop dock?

Atrix HD for $49.99

If you want this phone I see it's only $49.99 at Best Buy.

Unfortunate Trends

Another phone with a sealed-in battery ?. Ugh.
And what's up with deleting the Webtop just to make a $99 price point ? That was just software, unless Motorola has to pay someone royalties for it. The prior Atrix's were typically offered for $49 and sometimes $0.
Both the battery situation and lack of Webtop support on this phone are deal breakers for me.
I own an Atrix 2 and love it, but I guess if I had to upgrade right now I'd be ditching Motorola for a Samsung Galaxy S III.
I was once with you on the sealed battery thing. But it does make fore a better water proofing and slimmer design. No days you can find battery powered phone chargers to get you by in a pinch that you would normally put your secondary battery in.

flash is being phased out. i think i saw an article where it said you can download the most recent version of flash from the market. but there wont be any furth updates or revisions for security.

Kevlar is a Gimmick

Everybody hears kevlar, and they instantly think MY PHONE IS BULLETPROOF OMG!!!


Kevlar used to mean something, these days, when I hear it being included in the linkes of Cellular phones, thats just ridiculous.

I don't see Sonim advertising they put kevlar in any of their phones, but I bet just about any Sonim phone is tougher than this one is.
I don't think they are indicating that you can shoot it with a gun. Just that it's not going to shatter when it hits the ground, as an iPhone does.
There's no such thing as 'bulletproof' anyway, it's just a question of how big a bullet is required to pierce it. And Kevlar can't deflect a straight shot anyway......

But I seriously doubt anyone is going to firing bullets at their phone because ...

Hit or miss?

Size looks good, not too big like the S III might be. The only thing that has me worried is the battery and the fact you still need a media dock to see the display on the TV. Hopefully I've just miss understood that and it won't HAVE to have the dock.
Yeah after the Razr Maxx with the Excellent battery, anything less might be a failure. And I'd love to see one with a physical keyboard as well, like the Droid 4.

Add some great stereo speakers, and maybe offer Jelly Bean 4.1 version of Android, an...
