Motorola Atrix, notebook in your pocket

Motorola Atrix

The laptop smartphone launched in February 2011 at CES, the Motorola Atrix, has a dual core processor and can be placed in a Lapdock or in a HD Multimedia Dock thanks to its integrated application WebTop with which you can create, edit and work at documents. While using the WebTop the users can use the Android apps in a bigger window, can browse using Firefox, can make calls and if they take out the phone from dock the call doesn’t end. The package also contains an wireless bluetooth mouse and keyboard.

The display size measures 4.0 inches and has a resolution of 540×960 pixels and 276 ppi pixel density. The display features are: multitouch, touch sensitive controls, biometric fingerprint reader and Gorilla Glass protection. The phone dimensions are reasonable: 117.8×63.5x11mm and weighs 135g.

The Atrix has Wi-Fi with a/b/g/n protocols, DLNA, Wi-Fi Hotspot, 3G HSDPA speed at 14.4 Mbps and HSUPA at 2 Mbps. Bluetooth connection is v2.1 with A2DP + EDR and USB connection is made through a microUSB 2.0 slot. Web browsing, especially over Wi-Fi is very fast, pages are loading very fast.

The 5MP camera is good enough for snapshots. It has dual LED flash, autofocus, geo-tagging and image stabilization. Video recording is made at a decent 720p resolution and 30 fps but it can record now at 1080p via Android 2.3 Gingerbread update. Motorola says that they are planning to give the Atrix an update to Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0. The front-facing camera has VGA resolution.

Nvidia Tegra 2 AP20H chipset, dual core 1GHz Cortex-A9 processor, ULP GeForce GPU and 1GB of RAM; this is a very good hardware configuration for a dual core smartphone. The Atrix can provoke Galaxy S2 to a fight. The internal storage has 16 GB and can be expanded up to 32GB with a microSD card. Surprisingly the phone doesn’t have radio but it supports Adobe Flash, proximity compass, accelerometer and light sensors. It also has DivX/XviD support, HDMI support A-GPS support for GPS and a dedicated microphone for active noise cancellation.

The battery has 1930 mAh. A good voltage for a smartphone with an average screen size and a dual core processor. From technical data you will see that the phone can stay 400 hours in standby and 8 hours and 50 minutes talk time in 2G mode. I can say you that the Atrix can stay alive up to 2 days if you use it only for moderate calls. With Wi-Fi on, playing with the GPS making some calls, a little web browsing it can make it through the 1 day threshold maybe a bit more if not using the GPS. Its battery is quite impressive.

As the Motorola Atrix has a powerful CPU you can play any game from Play Store without wondering how it will work on the phone. It’s a well designed and robust smarphone, with good hardware inside and using it you may forget that you have a notebook.  I like the Atrix because is very fast and has no lag and its gaming experience is awesome.
