I was pleasantly surprised with Motorola's Atrix 2 last November, but eight months is pretty much an eternity in the Android world, so the Atrix line was in need of a refresh. Motorola and AT&T have teamed up to bring us the Atrix HD, a smartphone that's essentially AT&T's take on Verizon's Droid RAZR. There are a lot of similarities here, including LTE and Kevlar fiber backing, but this is more than just a rehash of the RAZR.

The Atrix has become AT&T's line for an Android phone that attempts to balance price and performance. At $99.99 on-contract, the Atrix HD looks to repeat its predecessor's overachieving ways by upping the screen resolution to 720p, improving the software with Android 4.0, and increasing the data speed to 4G LTE. Looking at the Atrix HD on paper, there's not a lot to complain about. How does it hold up after actual use? Read on.
