just bought an atrix and i HATE it..motoblur SUCKS and ATT nav was corrupt..i have spent more time on customer service (12 hours today) ..i am taking the phone back before i take a shotgun to it
Anonymous, 28 Jul 2011Alright I've many many problems with this pos phone being an owner of one for over a month. Fo... moreSounds like your problem is with AT&T and their bloatware apps, and not the actual Atrix itself... You should try rooting the phone and installing a custom non-AT&T rom.
I've had this phone since May and am totally happy with it here in the UK.
Had a little issue with the finger print reader but this has been resolved.
No issues with games, touch screen and I have the Otter Commuter case which is hard as nails....dropped it and watched it bounce.
As for wifi - I haven't had this issue at all Wifi works great - and I have my 3G / hsdpa switched off....only use wifi at home and only use the phone to *Shock* makes and send txts...only download at home through the wifi....
Sounds like you've had acouple of bad eggs. Speak to motorola.....they may help.
I actually had the Arc before this but sent it back...poor build, poor wifi.....go figure.
All in all my time with Atrix has been pretty much faultless...Hope yours improves.
Alright I've many many problems with this pos phone being an owner of one for over a month. For one, in the us if u have art and use this phone, ya better get the biggest fu#$%n data plan they have since it does NOT work solely on wifi. When u enter wifi mode, your h+ are supposed to disappear or have a check under it assuring u that u are indeed on wifi....which it doesn't. I had went over my data (2gb) in less than n hour downloading my programs.....VIA F@$KIN WIFI ONLY!!! And of course u call art and the first time they say that they have had problems with this and the next call they say that not on complaint has been said about the atrix 4g. That's another thing....the atrix is NOT A 4G PHONE IN ANY WAY. It doesn't even have the required software/4g radio capable of completing this. Anyways back to the wifi bs...I went to the store after calling them and demanding a different phone and them basically telling me I was a effin liar and PROVED IT TO THEM THAT IT WILL NOT SOLELY USE WIFI. In fact, I got an app to turn off my mobile data and guess what happened? It basically took whatever data I used on wifi with my data off so it wouldnt rape me and added it to the total amount of data used......sending me over 2 total guys...and their overage on a gig is $10! So this is $30 of data I DIDN'T FUCKING USE!!! And att doesn't care! They gave me a new phone since I was still within my 30 days....and what happens? THE SAME SHIT!!! And another couple things about this phone, they have 3rd party apps which defeats the purpose of having an android device....if I didn't want to be able to use 3rd party apps I would've bought an iphone. And the gorilla glass it says it has on it....YEAH OK.....what an effin joke....I dropped my phone the one n only time and it landed on the corner of it with a case on and cracked a triangle into my phones glass.....when gorila glass is supposed to be able to take a point with 1000lbs of pressure behind it eh? And the games.....they have about 5 gameloft games that work for it while they have about 45 that work with xperia powered devices....when tegra was out before right? And most of the games that u find out of the market after u run the exploit to allow u to "sideload" that claim up n down that they work for tegra 2 devices, DON'T FUCJIN WORK WITH THE ATRIX. overall this phone is a piece of shit....o and the multitouch is slow as fuck....it was great before I had ANYTHING on my phone but after I put so much as a picture on my phone, fps games will make u want to murder the atrix...the multitouch is shit....whole phone was a waste of time n money. Att's last ditch effort to have the first dual core, 4g phone...even tho they had to lie to u about the 4g telling u that its just a part of the phones name....yeah ok.peace out all and im sorry to any att ppl that got fucked such as I did.peace.
Hi can anyone give me some insight on which phone is better? OK, so I wanna get a new touch, android, phone. My options are either Motorola (Atrix) or HTC (Desire S/Incredible S/Sensation). I need something with great battery life as I IM often and listen to music a lot. Screen needs to be visible & readable during the day. I don’t want a phone that still has a lot of bugs and kinks, the faster the better, I hate slow loading phones. Good camera with great flash and night mode is preferred. Good wifi is a must. PLEASE HELP!!!
Is this phone support USB on-the-go (USB storage Hosting) ? I mean direct to the phone with OTG cable ,not with Doc or something else!!!??
Here is a different way to look at ATRIX - - An incredible small handheld micro computer with a built in phone. Note 1 Gig of RAM. Who needs a tablet - - I am buying the docking station so ATRIX will become my laptop.
come on moto
we are waiting for this phone and other new moto phone in uae and iran
My wife and I have had our Moto Atrix phones for several months. My only gripes is that the battery life isn't great but considering all the things it has loaded up and running at times, it's expected. Another, is the camera, the camera, side by side with other droid phones, it's the as good but this phone will smoke most phones on the market, including the Iphone 4 which, a family member has and I was considering on getting but I sick and tired of the phone having to connect to Itunes to upload all my pictures, music, ecetera. The Atrix, is a breeze, all I do is copy and paste what I want in specific folders and I'm done in 95% of the time faster than with stupid itunes...Never going back to Apples, not so user friendly devices!
