CONS: non-removable battery, camera not so good in low light(even with flash on), uh...it's not free
I get a good discount on AT&T for being an LSU student, so I am sort of locked into AT&T. After scoping out the market at looking at my measly student budget, I decided that I would not pay more than $50 for a new phone. There are a few good AT&T smart phones out there for $50 or less such as the Nokia Lumia 900, Motorola Atrix HD, and LG Nitro HD which was free (at Best Buy's website with 2-year contract). The lowest price I found for the Lumia 900 was $19.99 and the Atrix HD was $49.99. I feel like all 3 of these phones are great for the money. Another phone that I liked for $49.99 was the Sony Xperia Ion, mostly because I love the look of it, but after doing further research I decided that the Sony was style over substance. Check the specs. It's basically the old LG Nitro HD with a better camera and more internal storage. But the LG is free.
The Lumia 900 looked really nice and has positive reviews all over the web, but I really like all the apps on the Android market, and I'm not sure I'm ready to try Windows on a phone yet. The LG Nitro HD is possibly the best free smartphone on the market for AT&T. It has similar features to popular Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket except with a nice HD screen and less internal storage. And it's free. However, I did not choose the Nitro because I felt an extra $50 was worth it to get a phone with much better hardware and a better operating system.
The Motorola Atrix HD is fast. I mean really fast. The internet blazes on the LTE network, and the software rarely ever lags. The touchscreen is also very responsive. It has a Snapdragon S4 processor - the same one that's in the Samsung Galaxy S III. It also has the same Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system as the Galaxy S III (compared to the old Android 2.3 Gingerbread that is on the Nitro HD). Motorola has been very good about updating their phones with the latest operating systems, and I have no doubt that the Atrix HD will see updates to newer versions of Android (such as 4.1 Jellybean) in the future. I don't have the same confidence in LG, especially since the Nitro HD uses an older chip set. With the latest hardware and durable construction - Kevlar back and gorilla glass front - I feel like this phone will last me 2 years without a problem.
Screen looks great, although it can be a little bit bright. The SD card slot was a bit of a pain until I realized I had to turn off phone to add a new SD card. Worked immediately afterwards. The phone doesn't feel cheap, except for the sim and SD card slot door. I switched from an iPhone 4.
With that being said, the HD really IS a great phone...in my time selling AT&T phones I don't think ANY phone has sold as many as the HD has...and by quite a large margin. Its easy to see why with Android 4.0 right out of the box and a starting price of $49.99 (with most authorized carriers) it doesn't take a rocket surgeon to discover why so many are out there. However, I feel compelled to point out that a rather large number have come back to our store with disturbing problems, a large variety in fact. From just going dead to the phone literally bricking itself (which I've never previously heard of), there seems to be an abnormally large number of problems with this device. Don't get me wrong, when it works, its an absolutely awesome phone--however, for those who have received botched models, they have a decidedly different opinion, and I can understand why. Keep that in mind before purchase.
The screen is almost flawless...a departure from the Super Amoled Razr & Maxx, the HD has an LCD HD display with color-boost, which works VERY well. I would say that the color saturation is something you'll either love or dislike. Personally I think its brilliant. Even though the colors are technically improved, they still look great. The only other phone I believe which looks AS good is the HTC One X, which essentially has the same screen only without the color-boost enhancement.
Not sure that I like the way Motorola has started to address the ICS versions of their phones...and by that I mean coming with just a Main screen and you get to populate additional screens as you see fit. I suppose I was familiar with having 5-7 screens to start with and I could add or delete at my own discretion. Not everyone will see it my way on this, so I believe its a personal matter, but I thought I'd mention it all the same.
Having had my Razr update to ICS I knew what to expect with the layout and the 4.0 version works virtually flawless (aside from previously mentioned issues). A snappy and responsibe processor allows quite fluid screen transitions (which ought to get even better with Jellybean sometime soon). Call quality is what you'd expect for a Motorola, which is to say a notch above most considering the notoriety of Motorola receivers. The camera works about as good as you'd expect, however not as good ad the GSIII or the One X (which I personally believe to be the best on ANY phone--including the i5). The one major difference between the HD and the HTC and Samsung counterparts is in the Burst Shot mode. The other phones will essentially continue to snap photos as long as you depress the shutter button, whereas the HD snaps off 6 pics in about half-a-second. Not that you'd have the need to snap more than that at a time, but to be honest, I'd rather have the option to continue snapping photos like the other two phones, but again, this is probabaly a personal choice and your opinion may differ, which is fine. Android 4.0 brags about its No Lag Shutter camera, but I honestly haven't noticed it with the HD. Both the One X and GSIII really DO take instant pics as you press the shutter, but the HD still has a lag the other two don't. It is STILL better than camera's on Android devices which were released with Gingerbread and before, but not as fast as those other two, and the iPhone 5 for that matter. Something to consider.
The form factor is great, as you'd expect. Gorilla glass up front, a nano-coating which Motorola claims makes the phone 'Splash Resistent' (NOT to be confused with WaterPROOF, which NO phone is) and the Kevlar back make the HD a tougher-than-usual device, one that just may be right for you. I recommend dropping into your local dealer to SEE the phone IN PERSON before buying (like I recommend with ALL electronic purchases), otherwise, you may end up making a different choice.
Good luck, hope my review helped!
