Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Dock  

Feb 25, 2011, 3:27 PM   by Eric M. Zeman   @phonescooper

Phone Scoop goes in-depth with the Motorola Atrix 4G, a dual-core Android smartphone that can transform into a netbook replacement with the laptop dock accessory.

AD       article continues below...

The Motorola Atrix 4G by itself is another me-too, slab-style Android smartphone. What makes the Atrix 4G unique isn't the phone itself, but the accessories that Motorola and AT&T have chosen to make for it: a laptop dock that converts the Atrix 4G into a netbook, and other docks for desktop and multimedia. Is this new-fangled vision the future of mobile computing, or just an expensive gimmick?

I tried and tried and tried

I really tried to like this phone and AT&T. In the end, I just could not put up with the terrible internet speeds so I ended up returning the phone. If and when they get the slow internet speed issue resolved, I will be back. In then end, I loved the phone but the network issues made the decision for me. Just my 2c

Freezing up

I have had the phone about a week now, and it worked ok for the first couple of days. But now it is freezing up all the time. The battery life is not good either. I will do a reset on it and see if this helps with freezing. Battery life I can live with. if the freezing does not stop, I may return it. But the Android phones are defiantly the way to go!!! 😎
Make sure you dont have to many widget running. but you can blame motoblur for the freezing

Battery Life?

What android device makes it 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.? Ever since the 1ghz phones launched last summer, the only way you get that battery life is with jumping through hoops (unsyncing, task killer, etc). More of a drawback to android unless you can show that somehow the Atrix is so much worse.
The G2 easily gets a full day on a charge with moderate to heavy use, and with light use could almost make it 2 days.
The phone comes with a Motorola Task Manager. By using the task manager, no battery issues at all. Great phone by the way, I left an Iphone 4 for it.

Firefox vs. Chrome

Firefox can be tweaked to run better than chrome on slower/ older hardware and on slower connections through the about:config options.

It may also have been easier to get Firefox running on ARM architecture since Mozilla is working on a mobile Firefox version, that is supposed to be based on the desktop Firefox code.

The Best Phone I have used

🙂
I never really understand the premature reviews. I have used iPhone after iPhone, Samsung Captivate, and finally for about 5 days now the Motorola Atrix.

Since I have been using the Atrix I have been VERY VERY IMPRESSED. I realize that even at 5 days of use I think every review is premature since we have no idea of longevity.

I have been very saddened by Motorola lately. But oh my have they come back and came back hard they did. I will give my opinion on Signal, screen, battery life, speed, and accessories.

signal:
Motorola have been one of the best signal providers for at&t since the razr. This Phone although 4G is not in Michigan yet. who cares. The signal is very very impressive. Better than all the smartphones I have use...
