    Love it! (Had a nexus one on At&t before this, pre before that and iphone) But I'm a explain why.
    Got my new baby on Monday April 11. Packaging was meh compared to my other phones and no headphones. The motoblur stuff was a turn off as soon as I set it up and I went in open minded.
    Pros:
    1 - screen (size, touch sensativity, extra pixels, and great in sunlight)
    2 - FFC works decent
    3 - rear camera (fast, great video recording, ok pictures, ok dual led flash)
    4 - fingerprint scanner
    5 - buttons all work perfect
    6 - all the space "16gb" (I downloaded everything my nexus couldn't)
    7 - its fast and my N1 was not slow.
    8 - dlna app
    9 - battery, speaker, Mic, service is all much better and louder
    10 - "4g"
    11 - the games are great.
    12 - I like the overall size of the phone
    Cons
    1 - the ports on the side (personal preference) I would like the bottom
    2 - live wallpapers still not the best performers
    3 - "4g"
    4 - the colors the screen produce
    5 - motoblur and locked bootloader
    6 - some of my games didn't work. (Nfs shift, Nova, and Spartan
    7 - the power button in the back

    On day 1 after a few hours of playing with it I actually thought about returning it. Motoblur is really bad to me and the not being able to sideload at the moment had me pissed. Day 2 sideload, gingerblur, scratched the att and blur logo off the back. Wake the phone with the volume keys using widgetlocker.
    I still want cyanogen and faster "4g" but as of right now its become perfect in my eyes

    Its decent. I don't think its as good as the iPhone 4 but I think that's because its doing more in the background. Its a lot better than my N1.

    My girl has an iPhone 4 so I do pick it up and compare sometimes. IPhone has better looking apps but the Atrix has more customization, faster browser and just more options. The HDMI port is cool also

    Yes if you experience glitch with the buttons, it is. On the Nexus One, you must click it above the centre of the icon and above it to get the button to register the press. Pressing directly on it, gets you nothing.

    Yup that shit was annoying. My iPhone freinds actually have taken a liking to this phone surprisingly.
