I have an Atrix 2 purchased through Hong-kong warehouse of Motorola and using in Europe. It was terrible on Gingerbread 2.3, always dropped the signal in Europe. I was thinking phone is defected... And then suddenly, after 2 months of the purchase the ICS was available for update on the phone directly. I can only tell, this is the best phone ever I had. There is no signal issues anymore, the battery lasts for over 2 days with heavy phone usage, like talking a lot on it. For the price of this phone you will never get better phone. It has strong processor, always fast, Google voice navigation great, I downloaded Swype beta for the phone keyboard and now I can send SMS, E-mails by talking only :) I recommend this device for everybody! Buy with white colored back, very elegant! Gorilla Glass is great for the device, I have no scratches on the phone, altough I have just ordered a protective sheet onto the surface as I guessed I am just lucky no scratches after 4 months :)

One Week on Chinese Jelly Bean OS

Rooted it Just after installing the OS

No bugs to report...
Rock stable and smooth as silk
New (much wanted) options added -

New options in camera - shutter sound, button
Internal Mem 6gb and is named as SD card
notification bar tongles (shortcuts)
Fire wall and profile managers
Auto ShutDown and startup


the phone costs 18k in flipkart (India) and 250$ on Amazon USA.. so kindly do not compare or recommend phones worth ~10k more with lesser performance and immeture UI's... (Sony's A9, Adreno 220 Gpu line up)

1st-don't flash to JB just yet .cause there might be problems , wait for 1 or 2 more weeks for Devs to work on it :)

2nd-you really can't buy a better phone than this for the price :) this is better than s@ and xperia S and and xperia ion , xperia acro s .... they are more expensive than this but not better than this , they only have good cameras (xperia series ) .the use adreno 220 GPU which sucks like shit when it comes to games , but this awesome phone has a powerVR GPU which is awesome for games ..

i play
Nova 3 HD
modern combat 2 HD
modern combat 3 HD
mass effect HD
NFS most wanted HD
Real racing HD

and many more .....
buy this if you have money ! why pay extra for phones which only got the looks ?

always remeber what Intel says !
"WHAT'S INSIDE THAT COUNTS"

A surprise leak on the XDA forums gave the Motorola Atrix 2 users access to an official Jelly Bean ROM for their smartphones.

Of course, there’s always the option of installing a CyanogenMod 10 firmware, too.
Proceed with caution and wave goodbye to your warranty.

finished upgrading to ICS

well, i guess everybody is right. battery drains faster (not really fast) but faster compare to GB

lagging sometimes (not annoying) but not as smooth now compared to GB

well, got this unit for 199NZD, openline, with free 8gb sandisk msd< plus free shipping. cant complain :D
