100 Moto, 09 Jul 2012How about the first mobile phone, the Dynatech by Motorola? Very good point. But in my reply I wac focusing a bit more on recent innovations. The list over Motorola innovations through time is quite vast ;)
But they are the cell phones father, the most important thing in cell phone history.
[deleted post]I read is his post and funny enough you seem like the trolling one. I agree with him. If you disagree then please elaborate instead of troll posting.
Even Intel agrees on the fact that Android just isn't prepared for quad-cores. This far, only a few Tegra 3 games - programmed towards tegra-platform - requires and can fully utilize quad-core. However a dual-core can output just as much power, GFLOPS and so on, as todays quad-cores. My thinking leads me to belive that much more powerful quad-cores will be very intersting in perhaps two years from now. When Android is hopefully optimised for it, ad there's much more power in each core than in Tegra 3 and Exynos now.
For gaming I wish Android was more like Windows actually. As long as you have enough power, you can play the game. Unfortunately, Android isn't there, at all. If gaming is what you're after, get a Tegra-powered phone/tablet. If not, than there's so many options, and their all powerful enough to run other application and non-heavy gaming applications, if the architecture and android version is supported.
Over to something much more important IMHO.
Just like gaming compatibility is a bit silly on Android, so is version availability. Sure, apple has a much easier job as they only have a phone - or two/three generations of it to care about - but still it should be possible for all droids to receive the newest version without having to go through HW manufacturer and/or carrier. Just WP.
We should have the HW manufacturer's and/or carrier's launcher, widgets and applications available through Play, as well OTA when available - to carrier/HW specefic phones.
I thought we were trying to get more green theese days. Getting things to last longer and not just use and throw all the time. Regardless of device, any phone meeting the basic HW-criteria of the newest OS version, should be able to install it.
Though it may seem so, I'm not all that version crazed, but some apps are. Suddenly some apps no longer support your device, even though it is fully possible to run it HW wise. Pretty pointless. I'm pretty sure that in about 2 (perhaps 3) years from now, some very basic apps will not support any device running Gingerbread and ICS, even though they are dual or quad-cores running 1 GB RAM and qHD or higher display - simply because of their OS version. For the newest and most power hungry games, It's understandable to upgrade once a year, but not for general use and casual gaming.
cornel, 08 Jul 2012no men, LG first dual core, and LG first quad core..No, LG optimus 2x came after Atrix.
droid, 06 Jul 2012Moto is famous for coming late to the party with inferior hardware. There outguned anymore. T... moreReally? That's funny 'cause Moto has been first with sooo many things.
Who was first with android 2.0? Motorola
First with 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2? Motorola
First 1GB phone? Motorola
First dual-core? Motorola
First qHD Android? Motorola
First with battery with a stunning 3300 mAh? Motorola
Only thing they haven't jumped into first in a long time now is quad-core, which most people already know is rubbish and useless on Android.
Just look at Krait dual core and Intel single core, still matching the quads. Higher number of cores does not automatically give higher power output. And even if you make a quad-core far beyond those Exynos, you won't be able to get the max out of them until maybe a 2 years from now, then your GPU will be outdated, and most likely also your (official) android version, hence still not optimized for quad-core.
Besides, any of the others offering anything at all to compete with Motorola features such as Webtop, MotoCast and SmartActions? Some trying, but still not ready yet.
Main point: Focusing all on CPU/GPU, rather then what the phone ACTUALLY can do overall, is pointless. Take the SII, everyone boasting of the Mali, but there wasn't a single thing that low-res phone could run which the Atrix couldn't run, even at a higher resolution. Then sammy ruined it in their ICS update, almost forcing people to buy new phone or downgrade to gingerbread again.
Android has just started catching up with dual-cores, improved support in ICS and Jellybean. There's so much more to go on, but the core war has started, and just like the MP war, many are getting duped.
moto atrix hd is good but upcoming moto atrix 3,razr hd,atrix hd max,photon q 4g,moto fighter,
Hakun, 06 Jul 2012Probably wait for Atrix HD Maxx :))@ Hakun, DAN13L etc: let's keep saying Atrix HD MAXX as often as we can all over the web! Maybe some guys from Moto marketing will come across it and finally take a hint. LOL
Moto is famous for coming late to the party with inferior hardware. There outguned anymore. They used to have the game on lock back with the X but now no way would I own one. Lock boot loader to boot.
droid4every1, 05 Jul 2012Specs are OK, but the real thing needed is a larger battery like the razr maxx. Nowadays phone... moreMan its really true.. even thou there are amaxin mobiles in market but my eye is still on Razr maxx due to its longer battery life...
i think that the Atrix should be the flagship Motorola phone like the s3 and the one x. The first one was amazing when it came out.
Specs are OK, but the real thing needed is a larger battery like the razr maxx. Nowadays phones can't stand even for 5 hrs.
