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?

If this is the rumor Motorola/Google X Phone.

I would buy this phone if:

1) It had a removable battery

2) It kept the Kevlar backing (more for personal reason)

3) Especially if it got regular updates, especially since its rumored to be stock updates (Nexus-like), I'd take a month delay simply because that would be better than what is happening now

originally promised ICS updates for some devices like the original Photon, and then later said no. Don't believe it until it actually happens folks.

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?

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.

Motorola Atrix HD for AT&T

Thats one ugly looking phone Motorola really need to get a new product designer seriously...

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.

Did anyone actually buy these, and if so, why?

Why did anyone buy these? I get it, the idea is very cool, but also cool: a sustainable product and accessories roadmap that doesn't leave a $500.00 accessory obsolete when you change models of your phone.

Does anyone, ever think Motorola has *ever* enough foresight to work this kind of long-term platform?

scree mirroring?

No WebTop isn't a big deal. But does this also mean that you can hook up an HDMI cable and mirror the screen without a stupid media dock???

Certain Phones, Really?

When the Atrix first launched, I don't recall any Motorola phones that could use the lapdock. At least, they never advertised it. Besides, for those who spent the $400 for the phone and dock combo, do any of the newer Moto phones work for it? Just seems like a waste of customers money to me if it doesn't.

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.

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.
