I’m quite pleased with my first Atrix, this android phone is powerful and super fast since backed with 4G connection from AT&T. In October 2011 Motorola announces Atrix 2 as a successor from original Atrix 4G. Just curious what’s new in the new release phone, a striking differences from both of these phones is the display size, the new Atrix 2 comes with 4.3-inches display compare to their predecessor which only has 4-inches. And for the camera, the new phone equipped with 8 Megapixels camera and able to record 1080p HD video at 42fps, while the predecessor only has 5 Megapixels with the ability to record 720p video at 30fps.
