Motorola Atrix vs. Samsung Infuse - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Wait... you're saying Samsung is slow to update?

Samsung gave the CyanogenMod devs a free Galaxy S II. Motorola locks their bootloader, puts bloatware on their devices, and prevents you from installing non-market apps.

We just got the SGS II yesterday, and I tried it out today. Once you get rid of TouchWiz its hands down the best phone in the world right now. The only problems I have with it are that the screen is recessed, so the edges aren't as seamless as they are on say the Samsung Focus, and the lack of an optical trackpad.

Aside from that, its incredibly thin, incredibly light, yet still feels solid in your hand.

@nathris, I was thinking touchwiz was not too bad. For the average consumer that doesn't root, is the phone not worth it?

The Infuse was $49.99 at Target. It ended yesterday though.

Between the Atrix and the Infuse, that's a tough one. I think I'd still go with the Samsung, but that massive screen might hold you back. I love it however, and wish I had one.

The Infuse is sweet, but it's got less ram and only a single core processor. I'm trying to decide between these 2 phones also, I'm still rocking an Xperia X10.

Its a little slow. I had brief difficulty unlocking it, since the unlock animation stuttered. There is also some UI lag switching between panels and through the app list. Not quite as bad as Motoblur on the Atrix, but my Desire with Sense 2.1 and LauncherPro runs circles around it.

Its not a deal killer, but its part of whats causing the whole "Android is slow and buggy, iOS is smooth and stable" myth.

iOS is only smooth and stable until you do anything to alter it's "basic" stale iOS theme, i.e., once you jailbreak and start modifying, hello random screen freezing, slower performance, etc, etc.

But anyway, I guess it depends on how in depth you go, I had mine majourly tweaked. >_<<br />
I think though that the new touchwiz 4.0 for the Galaxy S2 has improved quite significantly over it's predecessor (I've heard of no lag whatsoever). Of course, I realize he's looking at the Infuse, I just thought I'd throw that out there for those contemplating getting one.

I had the same issue with my iPod Touch. Android is the exact opposite

I'm just really picky. Its not horrible like on the Atrix or the older versions of Sense, its just not as good as it should be.

This topic is relevant to my interests. Going to pick up either an Atrix or Infuse tomorrow. Still having a tough time deciding.

I'm hoping the ATT store will price match Amazon's deal for $25. It's kind of sad b&m places are becoming Amazon's showrooms, but I will save money wherever I can.

Atrix
Pros: Specs, looks-for me at least, feels right in hand...
Cons: Motoblur sucks, I want a phone thats g2g out of the box...

Infuse-- Well I'd consider the Infuse a last resort, I really am not fond of the huge screen.

Other?
Will I be kicking myself for not waiting for iPhone5 or SGII?
