    Hey all, I'm new to the android world and I was hoping you all could help me out with a few questions I have before I pursue buying an Atrix.

    1- Right now I have an iPhone 3G-s and about every 2 months of owning it I have had to take it into the apple store to have the screen replaced because dust got under the screen (I'm really picky about my electronics). I was wondering if any of you Atrix owners have dust problems...

    2- How is the battery life from your personal experience? I generally use my phone for texting (a few hundred a day) but it would be nice if it could power me through a few mins of gaming every day too.

    3- I'm not sure if you all would know but, what all would take place if I did need a repair/replacement on my phone (something that the warranty covers)? I've only delt with apple so... I dont really know how other companies work.

    Thats all I got for now, thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    1: Had mine for months. Not even a speck of dust.

    2: The battery is huge. Probably the biggest in a cell phone right now. It has plenty of power to easily get through texting all day with lots of gaming inbetween.

    3: No idea and not really a big worry. No one here has had any problems.

    No problem.

    I upgraded from an iPhone too and what a huge difference. I'd never go back to anything from Apple ever again.

    If you're into gaming make sure you download the Tegra Zone app (free). ATRIX has a Tegra processor and can run Tegra only games and some are awesome.

    Thats great to hear a fellow iPhone user upgraded to the Atrix and finds it nice. I am really looking forward to ditching apple and get into a real phone. Thanks for the tip too, it probably would have taken me a while to figure that out.
