It's dogfight time yet again!  Aaron puts the Motorola Atrix 2 and T-Mobile's HTC Amaze 4G to the test.   The Motorola Atrix 2 is available at AT&T for $99.99 and offers a 1 GHz dual-core TI OMAP CPU, 4.3-inch qHD display (with no PenTile technology!), 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording capabilities, a front-facing camera, 1,735 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with Motorola's UI.  HTC's Amaze 4G costs $259.99, and sports a 1.5 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4.3-inch qHD display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, front-facing camera, 1,730 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with HTC Sense 3.0.

They're both feature-rich phones, but one has to win the battle.  Will it be the Amaze 4G with its awesome camera, or the Atrix 2 with its fantastic price tag?  We'll find out.  Part 1 of 2.

Jesus Salvador Delgado Martinez well i love ui in gingerbread for the motorola atrix 2 so easy to use and only 99$ it stole my heart lol plus i always liked motorolas motoblur so it was easy for me to use...
Srinu Smart amaze 4g
Chad Richter Who cares. It's basically the same fucking phone over and over and over and over. So tired of this android flood. I have an android phone , btw. I'm just so tired of new phones every thirty seconds that really aren't any different than the ones that came out 6 months ago. I want to see wp7 take off and web os come back so there is some real variety.
Brad Allison Don't have T-Mo here so don't know about the Amaze. I sold my GS II and got the Atrix 2 because the ever-present blue tint on the GS II was driving me nuts. Loving it so far. Getting better HSPA+ speeds than on any other phone I have tried. Up to 5 Mbps consistently. Also, the new Moto UI is surprisingly useful.
Adam Van Weelden iPhone 4s.
Stefan Daniel Amaze 4G
Orlando Gonzalez Amaze all the way. This has been my best phone .

AJ Goren Amaze for sure.

Barry McMullen Atrix 4g, More memory, bigger battery and finger print reader plus 4 inch screen size is perfect for me.
David L. Clark Which do you prefer? Android phone #5,436 or Android phone #5,239? None will ever reach the status of the top selling mobile phone who's name we do not speak of, but all are made of plastic and other inferior hardware, running inferior software to that of the top selling mobile phone who's name we do not speak of.
Mark Balcher im lovin that Galaxy Nexus too, but not enough to go over to big red from Sprint, luv my inexpensive plan and unlimited data too much, and the 4g speeds are pretty awesome 11-13 Mbs teathered to laptop is sweet. I eat GB up too fast for capped data plan.
Batista Lamotray Junk phones nexus s
Kehin Faux Amazed, buttt Id get a Rezound 1st.
Jason Garland Amaze definately rite now I have the sensation...htc fanboy

David Harness Atrix 2 due to network and UI but I'm pretty sure the Amaze 4G has a better design, battery life, screen, speed, etc.
Michael Balk Lol @ the kid

Samuel Shallenberger Nick, I have AT&T (iPhone 4S, AKA the best phone you can buy) and have speeds twice as fast as Verizon and Sprint, plus I've never had a dropped call.
Eric Garrison I don't know. I get 9.4 mbps download and never have dropped calls. Don't know what you are talking about
Nick Gifford @Eric Garrison, how are those dropped calls and lackluster data speeds treating you... :)
Rob O. Allen can we get a dog fight between the Galaxy S II (at&t) vs. Atrix 2? I know there was a dog fight for the T-Mobile and Sprint variants of the GS II so it's only fitting to have one for the At&t variant :-)
Rani Hinnawi The Amaze 4G. I don't know how those two ended up in a dogfight against each other.
