3.    Image resolution is not that good when inspected closely.

4.    The pinch zoom is very poor.

5.    It has no dedicated shutter key.

6.    It doesn’t operate without a SIM card inside.

The ATRIX 4G is certainly the most phone in Motorola’s arsenal right now. The ATRIX 4G is all ready to win the hearts and minds of the power users with its 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and the ultra low power GeForce GPU under its hood.

Conclusion

It has to be said that it seems like Motorola is coming back to the mobile game. Motorola has been a leader earlier and now it’s trying to get its place back.

Android certainly has become the go-to Smartphone OS these days leaving behind the old Symbian OS. It has to be said that ATRIX is the best of Android’s attempt to create the perfect Smartphone.

At the moment the Motorola ATRIX 4G has some stiff completion from the following phones:

1.    The Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II

2.    LG Optimus 2X

3.    HTC Sensation

4.    Sony Ericsson XPERIA Arc

5.    The Samsung I9000 Galaxy S
