Could you imagine if the Inspire had the Atrix's battery? That thing might run forever.

It baffles me that people complain so much about custom UI's when you can change them at any time with various launchers. Only thing you should truly be worried about is getting the updates as soon as possible as it takes longer to make updates with the UI.

After some thinking, ive decided to wait for the atrix, even if I have to wait till march, in the end it will be worth it, now granted if the inspire comes out soon I will be tempted but I think the atrix is the perfect phone for me, perfect size and all the specs I need, even though I'd probably get used to it the inspire IS big lol. Cmon att just release these phones already!

Agreed. Despite the potential 2nd rate update rating, i think the Atrix is just more future-proof...

On a slow phone, like my Backflip, it actually does matter. Even with an alternate launcher, the integrated parts still slow it down.

You guys can say the specs won't be needed and that would be true if you're basing it on current technology. You have to think ahead and pretty soon, specs like the Atrix will become common standard and it'll still be a player in the game when other phones like the Inspire and Desire HD have fallen to the wayside. How much longer will the 1ghz snapdragon be able to keep up with the ever fast changing landscape of phone technology? Maybe not too long but fortunately the Atrix will.

Then you're at least looking at 2 for the Atrix. Which would actually validate resigning a 2yr contract.

Thats not guaranteed because you do not know what architecture the next Nexus will be its not guaranteed that dual core is the next step it might jump right to quad core

my whole point is that if you buy a phone because you believe it to be future proof then that is folly you buy a phone that best suits your needs when you need it, because in mobile tech the future is short and never guaranteed

Still Atrix for me, but the battery actually scares me a bit. I am no expert on batteries but the fact they thought they had to put in this monster power plant in makes me wonder how much juice this thing will need and how long it will last.

I currently own the Captivate and I am lucky to get through the work day without throwing the darn thing on the charger. I am looking forward to having my phone last a full day until I charge it overnight.

Damn, I just noticed that the Inspire doesn't have a kickstand like the Evo and Thunderbolt do. What's up with that?

Really, just one more piece of moving hardware to break or wear out. That is why I don't like moving parts like a kickstand or Keyboard on my phones. That kickstand felt really flimsy on the EVO when I handled it.

Y'all are hurting my feelings, haha. I had my Captivate in a plane and was wishing I had a kickstand. Watching movies is much easier with it than holding the phone for 2 hours.

The kickstand would look a little gimmicky to me. If I'm on the plane watching a movie on my Atrix phone it will be while in the laptop dock. Or use my iPad or Honeycomb tablet when they come out.

Yeah, that's really cool if you get an Atrix and laptop dock. But, for people like me, who enjoy not having to carry around a laptop to watch a movie and don't mind watching a movie on a 4.3" screen, a kickstand is perfect. I'm not convinced that it's gimmicky; there must be a reason they put it on the Thunderbolt.

I guess that's what I'm saying - I'm confused on why they would put it on one phone and not the other. I haven't really compared the two phone's images in great detail, but I'm assuming they have a really similar body style.

I think 1st off the Thunderbolt is an HTC PHone with a 4.3" screen with no docking solutions like the Motorola Atrix. Makes sense to put it on there since the EVO has one. I think it fits the EVO and Thunderbolt well but don't think it would look right on the Atrix.


Edit: Just noticed you said Inspire. You do know your in the Atrix forum.

Well I know the Inspire has a Unibody design, that may have something to do with it. Don't know if the EVO or Thunderbolt is Unibody

haha, yeah. I saw the thread topic is "Atrix vs. Inspire" and I noticed another thing that gives an edge to the Atrix (for me anyways).

I'm still undecided on which of the two to get. I currently have the Captivate and at&t is going to let me trade in my phone for either one of the two. I just have to pay anything over $200.

The Inspire is a Sexy phone but with last years specs. I'm always going to go with the best if everything else meets my expectations as far as looks and build quality. You can only benefit from the higher specs on the Atrix. My personal opinion of course.

I'm just saying 1GHz processors have been out in phones for a while now. Not saying The Inspire wont be a good phone just that when thinking about extending my contract for two years I want to go with the very best. 1GB of DDR2 memory is huge in my book.

Wasn't the Nexus S a bit dated (hardware wise) when came out though? I mean, no HD video, no SD card, no HDMI out. Some phones had all of that 6 months earlier. The Nexus S was at the very end of it's hardware's cycle. The lack of HD video is a real bummer.

That's even more of a reason to go with the best.

It was probably just a way for Samsung to get rid of all of their junk parts. Like I said, I have a Captivate and I'm never buying another Samsung phone again.

In all actuality I don't even miss those things because gingerbread works so flawless with this phone. This is the main reason I haven't gotten rid of it yet because bloated up froyo is gonna be a major step backward

I agree with that, now that I'm running GB on my Nexus 1, it's harder for me to outright accept the atrix just how it is. Now I might wait a little longer to hear from the devs how badly locked it is.

This is where I'm at. My nexus S keeps having connectivity issues and its starting to annoy but I don't want to loose the gingerbread

We're thinking the same way atlbuc. I just can see myself buying last year's tecnology when I've been holding out for a true Super smartphone for more than a year now. If that's the case I should have just bought a Nexus S when it first dropped ... oh but that's Samsung so nevamind.

I'm not convinced that it's gimmicky; there must be a reason they put it on the Thunderbolt.

I guess that's what I'm saying - I'm confused on why they would put it on one phone and not the other. I haven't really compared the two phone's images in great detail, but I'm assuming they have a really similar body style.
I use my EVO's kickstand all the time, for devices that don't have it built-in sometimes you can find a case with it or perhaps try The Wedgi.

The Desire HD's/Inspire 4G's camcorder quality is not supposed to be significantly better than the EVO unfortunately (correct me if that's not accurate but has "Auto focus, Face detection, Geo tagging, Effects") with subpar video-audio capture but decent still shots. I love the EVO's 4.3" screen but will still check out the 4" qHD Atrix when it becomes available. I was happy to read the report that the Atrix will even offer "Full 1080p video capture will be supported via Software upgrade post-launch" as well. Look forward to capture samples & full review of the Atrix 4G asap.
