What about the LED indicator? Does it indicate only if the battery is charged, or it blinks when you missed a call and so on..?
My last phone was nokia E51, and i got used to this function. Now it is quite a problem to find a phone whit this feature as it looks like it doesn´t even worth to mention such a silly stuff in this category of phones..

Can you see your phone content on TV? Can you use your phone as media center? Once you syc the atrix with big LCD screen it does transform to a media center. Need not to pay another a few thousand dollars to get a smart TV. The phone worth all the penny I paid for. Yes SSGII does thinner and lighter so what? I do like some weight and volume on the phone and believe most people do. I could root and set the clock to 1.2 Ghz just like SS but does it worth for your battery juice? By far Atrix has the biggest battery dude. So go back and do the math. So far Atrix still the best for me even I have Iphone 4 and 3GS.

everyone who think arena is biased ..with SGS and SGS2 Should consider this :

First of all the super Amoled plus in SGS2 is just unbeatable u need to go check it in person u are missing the real good stuff .. or atleast check on some Samsung Amoled TVs

The SGS2 is really light u can't even feel it ..seriously u have to put ur hand in ur pocket to check if its there i do it all the time always think i forgot it

and im pretty sure its much much thinner than the moto

1.2ghz! btw the SGS2 was able to run nividia own games better ..

I liked moto phones i ve owned many ..but now im sorry if its not Amoled i can't go back ..

for now SGS2 just has it all ..fastest.. thinest...lightest.

I starting to feel like GSM Arena is bias to Samsung and HTC handsets when they made reviews. I just grab the phone and I know that I made the right choice I will tell you why.
1. After I played with it for a few hours and I don't want to see my I phone 3GS anymore. Resolution is almost as sharp as I phone 4.
2. I hate super size 4.2 inch screens. Looks like a Pad. I wanted a phone not a pad.
3. Its come with complete set (except Micro SD card). It has a dock, HDMI cable, remote control, 2set of chargers and usual nice looking ear piece.
4. OS is smooth and fast and reliable.
5. Amazing battery life for a smart phone. Way Way better than I phone 3GS.
OK. Moment of truth. I paid SGD98 with 2 years contract. Iphone 4 asking SGD 498. SGS 2 asking SGD 398. I would say Hello MOTO.

GSMArena needs to update this review, at lease make some remarks to it...

specially on the specs/features and disadvantages area...

-"Not the latest Android version (NOT ANYMORE)
-No FM radio
-Screen image is pixelated upon closer inspection
-Questionable placement of the Power/Lock button (SUBJECTIVE AND I DISAGREE AS MOST USERS WILL)
-Poor pinch zoom implementation in the gallery (NOT ANYMORE)
-No dedicated shutter key
-Doesnít operate without a SIM card inside" (NOT TRUE)

After a correct installation of 2.3.4 (I had a bad one first) the phone is snappier, does not become as hot as before, pictures w/flash were fixed, Motoblur is way better, gallery/music rocks!, new features were added, full 1080p playback was added... etc

Please update a little bit...

IMHO the atrix SHOULD outsell the sgs2, maybe better marketing? honestly the atrix has basically the same hardware, except for screen. I guess the 8MP is a big selling point to non-geek consumers.

The motorola Atrix is a wonderful phone. Comparable hardware to the SGS 2, only .2 ghz of diference which you could overclock (and in the real world wouldn't make a difference you can account) and since both have 1gb of ram both SHOULD be able to multitask equally well and the 5MP camera still manages to take good pictures vs 8MP.

The only drawback in the camera (for now) is the non-FullHD recording which motorola says will be taken care of later this year.

Now the Atrix has a much higher pixel density than the SGS 2 and a way better battery life. which gsmarena "forgot" to mention on the last words comparison.

I've come to notice GSMArena is biased towards SGS and SGS 2.
