Marc Andrew Skerritt
Marc Andrew Skerritt Just a little food for thought to throw out to everyone. The atrix is the first dual-core phone. That means it will have glitches. First gens always do. Also, the atrix is made by our dear friends Motorola. Not only do they throw motoblur on there and cause lag issues, but they also like to lock things down i.e. bootloader. I understand that everyone out there isn't exactly looking to develop/run custom roms/overclock/ w/e. It's something to be considered though. More than likely, we'll see 2.3 hit either the EVO, Incredible, Thunderbolt (if it ever comes out.) or another HTC phone. .....Nexus One???? Once that happens, the inspire would be much more desired (pun intended.) for those out there looking to toy with our phones. Hands down, the fingerprint scanner and the laptop dock make for awesome gimmicks, and I would love to have the atrix just for those, but realistically, it's not a huge deciding factor either. Kudos to you guys at phonedog.com for doing an awesome comparison dogfight. I really enjoyed watching and just wanted to add my $.02. Also, if you guys want to give some free phones my way, I'd be more than happy to accept :-) lol

Michael Moon And the atrix just comes off as gimmicky. And does anyone even have ATT now that the iphone is on verizon?
Michael Moon
Michael Moon I'm not sure why the sgs4g gets so much hate. It's a great phone. I did a month of research and it came down to either this phone or the thunderbolt...and since verizon and htc dropped the ball on the thunderbolt...it was an easy choice...and the sgs4g hasn't let me down at all.

Allen Drewe Just shows how many morons post on these. The atrix beats the galaxy s 4g in every catagory. My buddy owns the s 4g and I own the atrix. We both know the atrix is obviously better.

Mark Balcher
Mark Balcher Well, as cool as the Atrix is, it does have some drawbacks. First, being on the worst of the 4 major carriers, the fact that it can't be rooted, Moto Blur. yuk.., So, I'd have to say Galaxy S or Nexus S with Launcher Pro. But the Galaxy S2 is a definite win, fo sho!!
Qcost Deal
Qcost Deal The atrix two is kind ahead of it time right now...with the processor in all but it still is slow and lags...motorblur is wack on a phone like that...played with it...and I told my homeboy to get the inspire...much better phone

Noor Mahmoud When it is about potential, the Atrix. For current performance with the phone out of the box, the GS4G. Overall, both phones are really not that good.
