Aaron does an early review of AT&T's Motorola Atrix 4G, the first retail phone to support a dual-core processor. In addition to the 1 GHz Tegra 2 CPU, it offers a 4-inch qHD display, Android 2.2 with MOTOBLUR, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, front-facing camera, and a bunch of accessories available for purchase. Is it the best Android phone on AT&T, or is the HTC Inspire 4G the better option?

Jeff Jay F@&k NO!
Aimee Dodds Yep I got mine yesterday!
Marwan J Sayegh Waiting for the Sprint super phone to be announced on Thursday
Ankit Maloney If it came to t mobile I would totally buy it. The 2 GB data plan cap on at&t is unacceptable. Especially for a device that is begging data usage
Harold Bias I would if I were on AT&T.
Hunter Messer Maybe. Probably gonna get the inspire instead cause it feels alot like the Evo.
Shawn Poling Htc thunderbolt
Josh Lazenby The answer to this is most likely... HELL YEAH! Unless someone comes out with a dual core device, with a better screen, and a full physical keyboard...
Anonymous Already did! Rockin that and an epic4g. I think I'll finally be happy wit a galaxy s2
Elliott Pouncie Considering it...or the HTC Inspire
Mitch Lopez Nope...I'm trying to get away from them and their fake 4G network that secretly runs on edge. *sarcasm*
Dennis Geswein I would if I was on AT&T
Vlad Valentine McBride LG optimus is where its all at, screw ur 4g
Fabian Fabu Floran I'm not sure yet, need a better review. And AT&T is great here in Puerto Rico..
David Reyna Yes!!!
Lionel Wright Sure. but wtf happened to everybody?? Just a matter of time before Aaron's on America's Most Wanted
Jordan Acosta Or galaxy s2. Is better.
Damien Reid Android still ain't there yet!
Brad Atherton Already did. And the laptop dock
Juwon Howard Nope 3 reason: its on att, its made by motorola, and I hate motoblur..
Walt Alan Wilcutts Already got it and it's amazing.
Christine Hernandez The phone is awesome I got mines today
Julian J. Perry Just purchased it!
Nora Mendoza Don't know if I should, maybe I will wait until compared to the Samsung infuse, or a more detailed review....
Maitreya Solanki The phone is great but A 4g phone is useless in India we don't even have proper 3g network.
Ryan Looi Boatloader locked = BIG NO!
Michael Montanez ehhh motoblur is a deal breaker for me....slap launcher pro or adw on it then yes =D
Ujjwal Chande wait for the bionic,
Sean McCollum Awesome phone, just on the wrong network.
Marti Ruiz Maybe but ......gs 2 coming out soon
Christopher Manic Johnson @Chris Taylor, an OS can be optimized to run more efficiently using a dual core processor than it would w/ a single core. So even though it's still 1ghz per core which means you're theoretically only getting 1ghz of processing power, the processing power is used in a more effective way, which helps out especially when multitasking. One core could be helping w/ your web browsing, while the other one is busy delegating activities in the background.
Tyrone Rupert No need for powerful phone unles your a techie, real talk. You wouldnt notice the difference as an average person
Jaz Lasa At&t sucks ;) well it does where I live
Lazera D Thompson Jr People say this phone isn't gonna be good.......att&t yeah that could be a price problem....... Now mototblurr with a good rooting and rom problem fixed! And if over clock the CPU (which u shouldn't have to) speedy won't be a issue
Erik Balster No. I want something that works well and android does not work well at all.
TJ Hardin The reason why a dual core is better is because it acts like 2 instead of 1 core without actually having 2 cores. More people have dual core in there computers imagine a computer now days with a single core, it would just be really slow. Ya dual core is way better. And yes o have an Evo but the core in the Atrix will beat out the Evo core.
Patrick Scot if i was on att
Chris Taylor I don't get why a dual core processor is better than a single code. Even though it has dual core's, it has no more processing power than my HTC Evo 4G, which was released over eight months ago, and that has a single core Qualcomm Snapdragon.
Thomas McCarty No I'm keeping my mytouch 4g
Elliott Rodriguez dont wait for any verizon phone .. Their getting pooped on by every one!
Marvin Oubre I will get a dual core phone just not from AT&T.
Donovan Blink Vejar NO MOTOBLUR!!!! NO AT&T!!!!
Christopher Manic Johnson Best device for the price right now. The docs aren't worth the cost, I'm hearing performance isn't that great when it comes to the docs, but, the device itself is a beast. So, I'm handing over $500 for it off contract.
Anthony Bui I totally would if it were on Verizon :/
Ernesto Moreno i like that it has a dual core processor but the phone is ugly! they gotta work on design. AT&T got ugly ass phones.
Jason Ramos If it were on another network. Not on AT&T though
Dennis Petrospour if I.had att
Roney Desousa Yeah, for mah birthday :3
Stephen M. Knipe II Already did, and man is it both fast and sweet
Darryl Mouzone Getting it this weekend! Can't wait until payday!
Victor Rios Nope...three reasons: I have T-Mobile, I have the myTouch 4G, and I heard not so good reviews about it...other than having a fast dual-core processor.
Fernando Navarro At&t is not that bad where I live
Luis Robles Figueroa No cuz I am not with AT&T...
Fernando Navarro Already did its the best
Jake Denning HELL NO. Wait till Bionic rolls out on Verizon. SWAG.
Allen J. Hogan Nope AT&T is terrible
Cory Wood dont think so!
