Score

3.9 stars
"Good"

(How we score)


Nice hardware design, fast dual-core processor, unique laptop dock available
Mediocre HD camera, disappointing photos, so-so call quality, 3G data speeds on a "4G" device

Summary

The ATRIX 4G is not your typical high-end Android smartphone. It's the first phone in the United States to offer NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 processor, and it can also plug into, and power, an optional laptop dock that provides a Linux environment, a full keyboard, and two USB 2.0 ports.

While the laptop dock is an exciting accessory, it's also expensive. You'll pay $499 for the phone and the dock together as a bundle, or just $499 for the dock alone if you buy it after the fact. The aforementioned dual-core processor is blazing fast, but the same can't be said about the device's HSPA+ "4G" connectivity, which really performs at 3G speeds.

Even still, the ATRIX 4G has a lot going for it. Let's take a look at what makes this such an exciting phone, as well as some of the aspects that let us down.

You'll find two videos of the Motorola ATRIX 4G for AT&T in action after the Table of Contents, below.
