Summary

The Motorola ATRIX HD is the follow-up to last year's ATRIX 4G and ATRIX 2 smartphones for AT&T. This year, the ATRIX gains a much improved display, a faster processor, and better build over the older phones.

But the 2012 smartphone market is very different from 2011's, and the ATRIX HD has some seriously stiff competition in AT&T's smartphone lineup with the Samsung Galaxy S III and the HTC One X. The ATRIX HD has most of the specs to match the top tier Android smartphones, but does it put them together well enough to be a real competitor?

The answer to that question is a bit of yes and a bit of no. The ATRIX HD excels in certain areas, but doesn't quite hit the mark in others. Fortunately, its $99 price tag makes it a great value, and it is one to be considered for those who don't want to shell out upwards of $200 on a new smartphone.

Read on to find out where the ATRIX HD shines and where it comes up just a little short.
