Motorola ATRIX 2

Upon first glimpse at the Motorola Atrix 2 you can't tell a distinction between the previous version. The shapes are similar yet the subtle differences help bump up the Atrix 2. The gunmetal grey bezel around the front and a rubberized textured back give it a more upscale feel. You get a a little larger display, the Atrix 4G had a 4-inch qHD display and the Atrix 2 gets a slight jump up to a 4.3 qHD display. This also shows through with a much higher value display.
Around the boundaries of the phone are the Micro-HDMI and Micro-USB port, you got your volume rocker and the committed camera button, the 3.5mm headphone jack and the power button. You have a front-facing VGA camera for the video chats and the 8-megapixel camera on the back with the LED flash. Accessories for the Atrix 2 are extensive with the Motorola Lapdock 100, extra battery, vehicle steering dock, HD station, a portable universal charger, a wireless keyboard, and so much more.

The 8-megapixel camera is a big step up from the 5-megapixel on the Atrix. The one downside was the shutter lag. It was almost a 4 second delay from button press to focus to picture taken. So you can prety much count this phone out for action shots.
The photo quality itself was inspiring. Sharp images with accurate colors, low-light photos did need a flash sometimes which would wash out some images. The Atrix 2 does come with 1080p HD video capture. The video quality was enormous however is was not without some shadowy images. You get 8GB of internal storage of which almost 4.5 is available to the user. It does come with a 2GB microSD care preinstalled, it can carry up to 32GB card.

Performance and battery life:
Testing out the call quality on the Atrix 2 we found it to be quite good. The callers could hear me quite well and the audio on our side was clear and plenty of volume. It wasn't perfect as some sizzle and slight distortion would occur but that might have been attributed to user location. Speakerphone value was solid as well and occasionally the people we were calling couldn't tell we were on a speakerphone.
With the battery you get a talk time of around 8.5 hours, standby time 15.9 days. That isn't a half bad battery life. As always your battery usage will vary depending on how solid you use your phone.
