    Ok I'm gonna come out and say this first, the Atrix is a mega phone with alot of buzz. What i don't get it why every person who is buying the Atrix has this elite attitude all of a sudden like they are iSnobs??? There are people on here who dislike somethings about the atrix or have decided that they want to go a different direction for their next phone and the Atrix crowd seems to jump on them or talk down to them. When did this happen? Last time i checked this forum was for discussing ones opinions and the freedom to have differing ones was part of not only this great forum but our great country! Can you guys get off your dual core high horse and listen to the others? Alot of inspire people and some infuse people have been echoing the feeling that this forum is becoming unwelcoming and left out for them and thats just not cool. So please be mindful of peoples opinions

    I haven't been on this forum enough to really notice this. But, I can tell you that a phone with hardware like the Inspire CAN run smoother/better than a phone with hardware like the Atrix. It depends on how well (or bad) HTC and Motorola write their software.

    There has never really been hardware like the Atrix so we don't really know. That being said any phone can be made to run smoother than the next phone.

    I have been lurking in the Atrix threads since they started.I think we all know that PEOPLE LIKE US get very excited about anything tech.I have seen you argue your opinion of Inspire just as hard.We are all entitled to our opinions and are free to state them openly in great forums such as this one that is what makes this country great.I don't understand what makes your opinion MORE Right.

    I don't think there is any elitism going on. You and others have expressed your likes and dislikes for the Atrix and myself and others have expressed our likes and dislikes for the Inspire, that is what the Atrix vs Inspire thread is about. I haven't seen any body look down on you or others because of your opinions on this topic. I think its healthy and fun discussion, don't take it personal cause I sure don't. I'm going to buy whatever phone I want regardless

    I understand where your coming from but the atrix is elite compared to every other phone. Whether I have a device or not, I just appreciate technology, in 6 months the atrix will just be another phone but for right now, its the new hotness. Whether this forum allows it or not every phone on here can lead to a battle of best. Like Evo guys are ever going to say their phone ain't the best, or that HTC does not make the best phone. It is a little childish but, for some a cellphone is on the same plane as a Mercedes.

    I dont think theres any eliteism going on here, just opinions, I know you pick the inspire over atrix as it has things you wont use, and while in the same boat, I ultimatly decided for the atrix as it has everything I want and need plus more, and even if it has things I dont use it wont hurt to have them, with the atrix I"ll have a complete phone, I think people argue more with you when you say the dual cores are useless which is not correct, they will be put to work and the phone as well as many games will benefit and who knows what devs can do with those dual cores, better to just have it as you never know what the future might bring.

    Not saying you singled me out, its just I know we have been going back and forth on the issue. So what will you do, buy the Atrix 1st and try it for 10 days then take it back and get the Inspire and try it for 10 days or vice versa. I know you said your thinking of trying both out

    I have never said the dual cores are useless i have stated that android is optimized for single core and.unless your using the laptop dock or nvidia games graphic intensive as they will be then the dual core.wont.be needed. I have never stated that it was useless.

    Thats the beauty of an open OS, manufactures can optimize it further to fit what they are trying to accomplish. Don't think an HTC phone wont need to optimized to run Sense.

    I think that everyone is just a little on edge. We all want this phone to be so bloody awesome, and we all want it to get released ASAP. We all want to get our hands on this phone so bad we can taste it.
    But, the fact is that we don't know for sure that its going to be awesome (please be awesome, please be awesome). We just need to wait and see, maybe it will be so cool that it gives your frostbite and maybe it will be a flop, we just don't know for sure yet. We have all seen the demos and promo video, but no one has had a 100% final release version in their hands. Only time will tell how good/bad this phone will be.

    I haven't really noticed any "elitism" in this subforum from my 1 day of being on here. I think it's just people arguing over which phone they feel is better for themselves. I see that a LOT of an Apple forum (I don't troll there). You're always going to get this when a new, really powerful phone comes out. It happened with Droid vs. Droid Incredible, Droid Incredible vs. EVO, EVO vs. Droid X, everyone else vs. Samsung Galaxy S... and so forth.

    Hahaha!

    Yeah, I think putting any cycles into sweating over this doesn't seem like a good use of time and energy. It's just a phone, people think it has impressive specifications and will be an effective mobile device. I don't understand the drama[?]

    I don't mean any disrespect,but why would you start a thread and call people "iSnobs" if your not dismissing the opinion they have.

    I didn't read the 17 replies but i am going to have to disagree with you here.

    I think the potential Atrix buyers are very respectful and 90% of the arguments about this hot device are pretty reasonable.

    It does have the highest specs, most peripherals, and largest battery after all?

    And at least 75% of the posters even acknowledge its flaws (blur/potential locked boot loaded/5mp camera/the fact its a motorola/ etc.)

    I wouldn't call that Elitist

    Are you and I elitist because we point out the strengths of our phone of choice?

    Oh...i think you were referring to the few "fanboi" off hand comments like.

    "Atrix rulz" "Atri- no fear" "Atirx is da bomb" "Atrix forever it wins" (imagined to be said in a wrestler Rowdy Randy Savage voice like "step into a slim jim" type thing?

    LoL...chalk it up to excitment.

    I do the same thing when im in my 412hp mustang and a rice racer pulls up beside me and revs the engine (i pull out my helmt and say in the randy savage voice.... "lets do this"

    To which they usually say "screw that" and drive off.

    All in good fun.
