Review: Motorola Atrix

By Dave Bailey 19 Aug 2011
Motorola Atrix front view Verdict: The Atrix is a capable smartphone that is well manufactured and has a good user interface. It offers good performance and battery life, and the MotoBlur overlay makes getting and responding to email, and social networking site updates, quick and easy. The combination of the Motorola’s Atrix smartphone with the Lapdock docking station is a novel offering that lets users access phone functions and a limited selection of applications on the Lapdock. It worked well in practice, although having some network connectivity in the Lapdock would go some way to justifying the cost (£300).
Overall Rating: four star
Manufacturer: Motorola
Pros: Good battery life; MotoBlur service offers good workflow with social networking and Google mail sites; Lapdock gives mobile users better document and media-creation options. Cons: No network connectivity in Lapdock, which would allow it to be used standalone; Android OS version (2.2 – Froyo) is not the latest.
