This ain't no PhotonGeneral

    Picked up my Atrix HD yesterday and my initial impressions are that I am disappointed, or maybe I was spoiled by the Photon.

    The screen while beautiful indoors, washes out in direct sunlight. The Photon was amazing in this regard. Volume on the Atrix is not a good as the Photon both in regular and speakerphone mode.

    The Car Dock app on the Photon was 10 times better than the Atrix. If you have polarized sunglasses on you cannot even read the screen on the Atrix.

    Does AT&T have a photon phone a like?

    They don't have a Photon type phone but the One X is the same price as the Axtrix HD.

    Hmmm, I must be quite lucky in that my Atrix HD has a very loud speaker & I find myself having to turn it down. The speakerphone is great on my HD & is a bit better than my Atrix 4G & Atrix 2. :)

    OK now that I have had my Atrix for a couple of weeks I am going to take back the bad remarks I made. Once I changed the screen brightness setting to auto the display is much more visible outside. The phone is actually quite a bit faster than my old Photon. And best of all when I am up north at my cottage it actually works and I can receive and make calls without having to run out to the middle of the road.
