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?

Ankit Maloney
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

Sean McCollum
Sean McCollum Awesome phone, just on the wrong network.
Marti Ruiz
Marti Ruiz Maybe but ......gs 2 coming out soon
Christopher Manic Johnson
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
Tyrone Rupert No need for powerful phone unles your a techie, real talk. You wouldnt notice the difference as an average person
Jaz Lasa
Jaz Lasa At&t sucks ;) well it does where I live
Lazera D Thompson Jr
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
Erik Balster No. I want something that works well and android does not work well at all.
TJ Hardin
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.
Cody Sulouff
Cody Sulouff No
Patrick Scot
Patrick Scot if i was on att
Chris Taylor
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.
Cristhian Urquilla
Cristhian Urquilla Hell no !!
Thomas McCarty

Donovan Blink Vejar
Donovan Blink Vejar NO MOTOBLUR!!!! NO AT&T!!!!
Christopher Manic Johnson
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
Anthony Bui I totally would if it were on Verizon :/
