Engadget Review

The Atrix HD is the best AT&T Android device you can get for under $100, though it doesn't match the One X and Galaxy S III despite having similar specs.

Pros
  • Krait processor brings solid performanceGreat specs for the moneyNice build quality
Cons
  • Dismal battery lifeSlightly oversaturated displayCamera falls short of the competition
