Reception as good as my Moto Atrix. Actually on Wi-Fi, Quadrant & Smartbench, Thrill was about 10% faster than Atrix. On Linpack Atrix 44MFLOPS - Thrill 70MFLOPS. So very fast & smooth. Screen on Thrill chrisper & brighter than Atrix, which makes it better n sunlight of course. Atrix may have an extra 1/2 hour longer batt use.
