The Atrix (Canada)

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'm soooooo tempted it hurts but I don't want to be locked into a three year contract Or drop $500 on a phone when I'll probably want a new one in six months..


And the plans.. omg

$50 for 500MB? Seriously?! $100 for 3GB???!

If it wasn't for that I'd get it...


Bell has it for $25 on a three year contract

Here in US (AT&T) it's $15 for 200MB, $25 for 2GB.

I hate mobile phone companies in the US though. Such liars. They call HSPA+ 4G? I got better speeds when I lived in Sweden using a 5 year old phone that didn't even connect to HSPDA, only 3G, and I got much faster speeds. Now 4G LTE with Verizon and Metro PCS, THAT is 4G. 10MB download speeds? Hell yeah. I have to get AT&T though since my dad works for Sony Ericsson and they pay for our cellphone bill since we are on contract here.

That's one reason America pisses me the hell off. Way too much false advertising and exploitative capitalist bourgeoisie.

So, apparently the screen isn't so good on the Atrix I here.. That's probably super subjective but whatever..

The Galaxy S2 isn't out until the fall so that's out.


Screw it, I'll probably just get the Atrix. Gonna sleep on it.

No, its not subjective. Not even close. SAMOLED is subjective, since the deep blacks are more important than clarity to some people. The Atrix is plain old LCD, so no deep blacks. Its just a plain old display, only it can't draw straight lines.

Compare it side by side with the Incredible S. Both have 4" screens. You won't believe the Incredible is actually lower resolution though, since it will look twice as clear.

Plus the Incredible S is free on contract.

Pick your top three from Bell / Rogers for me then.

You like the Xperia arc?

---------------------------------------------------------------

Just checked out the Incredible S. Meh. It's just doesn't excite me. Think I want something with a dual core too.

Incredible S is using AMOLED screens by Samsung, I am pretty sure it's a Pentile display, same as the Atrix.

I own the Atrix, it's actually not a bad screen much better then the Super AMOLED from the Galaxy (Captivate) series. Haven't seen the Galaxy S 2 for obvious USA reasons.

The HTC Incredible S brings everything you view to life on a stunning 4" Super LCD screen.

SLCD = IPS. Fact check before you post.



And dual core does nothing for performance. You get a bit of savings on battery life but thats about it. Side by side, my Desire is faster than an Atrix, because Motoblur is laggy compared to stock/Ginger Sense. The real measure of a device's performance is in community support. A good rom will do more for your performance than the actual hardware, and you can't beat HTC in that regard.


The Xperia Arc is a pretty nice phone, the screen is nice, its crazy thin, and has physical buttons. But I don't like the UI, and for some reason the headphone jack is in the side, so you won't be able to put it in your pocket with headphones on.

Rogers has typically been bad for Android phones. Aside from the Xperia Play theres nothing worth looking at.

Ah right sorry about that. It used to use the AMOLED from samsung, however it was switched out.
Wait where does it say IPS?

If it's using a SLCD panel, then that's PVA.
