The Atrix HD from Motorola is the latest from AT&T in the Atrix lineup and it comes with the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) and features a large 4.5” screen and 4G LTE capabilities coupled with a sleek design. The Atrix HD scores well on the design and build and although it doesn’t have anything groundbreaking to make it stand out, the device is rather impressive and comfortable to use. With Google’s takeover of Motorola Mobility, the phone got the ICS release rather quickly, which is quite an advantage.

On first looks, the Atrix HD is similar to the Droid RAZR and it features a Kevlar back with a Gorilla Glass screen on the front and the combined use of both these materials makes the phone very durable. The lightweight Kevlar back ensures that the device is very light and with its slim design, the phone is very comfortable to handle with one hand. The outside of the Atrix HD is designed like a normal smartphone with the buttons on one side and the ports on the top and one on the side. The design is pretty neat on the front with nothing but the AT&T logo on the bezel.
The specifications and features of the Atrix HD are also quite impressive. It comes with a 1.5 GHz dual core processor working with 1GB of RAM, both of which go well together to run the Android 4.0 OS smoothly. Applications appear to be very smooth and web browsing is a breeze. The phone comes with the MotoBlur and the widgets on the phone are neatly designed and rather fun to use. Coming to the display, it is easily the most striking feature of the phone. It is a large 4.5” ColorBoost with a 720p resolution and a depth of 330ppi. Before the release of the phone, Motorola had extensively marketed the display and it doesn’t disappoint even one bit. The colors are vivid and text is crisp and easy to read and it looks pretty readable in sunlight too.
The device is impressive on all fronts and comes with a contract price starting at $49.99 at select retailers. One minor drawback is that the Atrix HD is not going to work with the Motorola Lapdock, which is probably why the device is priced so reasonably. Buy the Motorola Atrix HD starting at $49.
