    Good review. Those photos look like what another member here posted in his photo thread.

    The screen has to be the biggest dissapointment. I was hoping the resolution would make it better than past screens.

    You can blame that on the Pen Tile layout and it seems the screen isn't the highest quality anyways. Kinda the same issue on the Xoom, it's higher res than the iPad but looks more grainy and washed out sometimes.

    I am coming from an iPhone 4 and I fell in love with the Atrix except that I am considering going back to it just because AT&T is effing up data speeds and I might wait until everything gets settled...

    i came from the captivate.......the screen is a bit dissapointing after using the awesome AMOLED screen. but its still better than the screen on the iphone 3g IMO, wich i had right before the captivate (only had captivate for 25 days)

    I feel sorry for anyone that still has the Captivate. I'm glad I realized what was going on and was able to return it in the first 30 days.

    While the still camera may not be great, its good enough especially considering we will eventually have 1080p video recording.

    Ok so after my second day owning the beast I have had 2 lockups and have experienced some lag which was minimal on my iP4. I have had to battery pull to get it to start back up. I have it rooted so maybe that has something to do with those issues although to me I never experience this on iP4, I refuse to give up on it because maybe those or just 1 time glitches? but on the brighter side it is snappy and the gaming is great on it and cant wait til devs make a game like Sandstorm unless there is one and I have not found it but overall I would keep this if asked would I take it back or keep it today. Also battery is better that I thought it would be. Just my 2 cents
