-Fast Processor and RAM
-2.3.5 (Good possibility of receiving ICS)
-Nice design, light, good size but not too big
-Textured back feels nice, wont scratch like plastic/glass would
-Motoblur not too intrusive
Cons -Camera button is not double press
-Camera quality is not mind-blowing, though not bad
-Volume rocker on side of phone is a bit difficult to press at times
These are picky minor concerns only.
Summary This phone has completely blown my expectations. As far as I am concerned it is under-appreciated in comparison to the Motorola Droid Razr, as there is little difference between the two. I live in Canada and ordered this phone online to use with Telus because the phones here are expensive ($599.99 to buy the Atrix from Bell, when I can buy the Atrix 2 for $444.99 online???) and don't compare to the new phones out in the US. The phone is gorgeous, has a nice simplicity to it (some people prefer simplicity, some prefer the odd design and feel of the Droid RAZR). The phone is amazing as far as productivity, especially in comparison to my Motorola Milestone which was outdated and ran a half assed version of 2.2. I cannot stress how satisfied I am with this purchase, and I really hope Motorola pushes ICS out to the Atrix 2.
Excellent call quality
Decent battery life
Cons Nothing so far
Summary Having come from a Palm Pixi Plus, this phone is like heaven for me. I was afraid of a rigid UI was but pleasantly surprised to find that any customization necessary is possible. The home screens are great, widgets wonderful, and the overall performance of the phone is fantastic. The battery life is not out of the park, but it is more than acceptable IMHO. Overall, this phine is more than worth the purchase at $99. I finally have a GOOD phone!!

Pros Fast, clean snappy GUI, quality construction, love the feel of the back
Cons This was a deal breaker for me. To my understanding, Motorola changed the pinout on the headphone jack. This change impacts the inline control of iPhone compatible headsets (Skullcandy Aviators in my case). Audio still sounds great but the pause/play a
Summary If inline headset control is not an everyday use for you, then this is a great phone.
Pros Big, beautiful screen in a nice compact package, fast, super loud speaker, best 4G speeds of any phone I have used, useful widgets, excellent build quality, notification LED, physical camera button.
Cons Only 8GB of internal storage, having the charging port on the side makes it a little difficult to hold while the phone is being charged.
Summary This phone is a fantastic bargain at $99 It has the same size screen as the Samsung Galaxy S II but in a more compact package that fits nicely into your pocket. Unlike the Super AMOLED+ screen of the Galaxy S II, the whites are white (as opposed to blue) and the colors are not over saturated. Being a former Blackberry user, I really love the customizable notification LED.Excellent battery life as well.

Pros Super fast, Great call quality, Great front facing camera, No Lag what so ever, Speaker phone is great, Zumocast is the best. Battery Life is Just as good as other smart phones.
Cons Coming from the Samsung infuse..The camera seems a little lackluster but it may just take some getting used to.
Summary Fast, Great call quality, Great battery life (heavy usage), Fast GPS, 4g speeds are amazing (Philadelphia). I had the Infuse, The LG Thrill, and the HTC Inspire. I left Sprint and came to ATT from the EVO & Epic4g. I was a long time Sprint user/Fan. When I started with ATT i got the Thrill. Froze and Force closes, So I traded to the Inspire. Fast but dated no front cam. Infuse Beautiful screen but *cough* Samsung support sucks *Cough*
I got the Atrix 2 two days ago. I absolutely love this phone. I could not be happier. I havent lost 4g service yet. Ive been all over the city. The GPS is on point never freezes! It handles the rigors I put on a phone. Call quality is great. Bluetooth quality is great. Internet is fast. Add "Android Assistant" to help with battery life! Screen is responsive.
Im shocked this phone is $49 at Best Buy! Tried it next to Iphone 4s and it was faster. Great Front camera quality also!
