Motorola with AT&T has come up with this amazing pone to compete with the Verizon Droid Razr. The complete review of the Motorola Atrix HD is discussed below.
Built and Design:
Motorola Atrix HD may not be called as unique handset but it is quite different from other handset. The edges are covered with aluminum ring and the edges are rounded. On the Kevlar back battery is provided. On the right hand side, power button and volume rocker is provided. On the top of the phone microUSB, microHDMI and 3.5mm audio jack is given. On the left hand side, microSIM and microSD card slots are provided. Unlike many other handsets, this Smartphone doesn’t provide any physical keys. The dimension of this handset is 133.5 x 69.9 x 8.4mm respectively and weighs around 140g only.
The 4.5 inch capacitive touch screen provides 1280 X 720 pixels of resolution and supports 16M colors. The screen is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass and uses their Motorola UI. Another important feature of this is that the body is Splash resistant. The colors are vivid, clear and bright. Viewing the screen under the direct sunlight is not a problem.
Atrix HD is powered with Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0.4 operating system with Motorola skin. Some tweaks with the widgets by the Motorola are really impressive. Motorola Atrix HD uses Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core processor clocked at 1.5GHz. 1GB of RAM is also provided which makes it more fun and enjoyable to use it. 8GB of internal storage is provided which may seem little less but external memory can be upgraded to 32GB with microSD card slot. Adreno 225 is used for GPU. 1780mAh battery is used to power this handset which is not good enough for this kind of Smartphone’s. Another very disappointing feature of this battery is that it is irremovable.
The primary camera is of 8MP and can capture high quality snaps (3264×2448 pixels) with the help of LED flash and autofocus feature. 1080p videos can be taken at 30fps without any problem. Many of the captured images are sharp and covered lot of details under sunlight. But the same cannot be said about the camera in dark conditions. The secondary camera is about 1.3MP which is good enough for video chatting and similar other activities. For connectivity purpose GPRS, EDGE, WLAN and Bluetooth v 2.0 is provided. For file transfer microUSB 2.0 can be used.
Overall Atrix HD is an amazing Smartphone with lots of interesting features and power. This Smartphone also doesn’t have any dedicated camera button unlike many other headsets. FM radio is also missing from this phone. This handset may have problems but if users can overlook it the they wont be disappointed with it.
