Motorola ATRIX HD MB886 8GB Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Dual-Core Smartphone

Motorola ATRIX HD is a good quality cellphone launched in 2012, counting with a 4.5 inches multi-touch display, a fast Dual-Core CPU clocking at 1.5 gigahertz, an 8 mega-pixels back camera and a 1.3 MP front camera.

This cellphone is slim and good-looking, being just 0.33 inches thick. Motorola made an amazing job making this phone as lightweight as 4.94 ounces. The Motorola ATRIX HD is for sale in two colors, white and gray. Talking about its body materials, this phone is majorly manufactured with Kevlar, which gives a premium feel and an extra resistance.

Motorola decided to design this cellphone using a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus MSM8960 chip, holding a fast Dual-Core CPU running at 1500 MHz with 1 GB of RAM. Graphic intensive apps usually uses lots of CPU cycles, so it also has a 400 MHz Adreno 225 GPU to help handle those graphic tasks. A good point of this device is the 8 GB quite large internal storage and an external memory card slot, allowing the user to install hundreds of games and apps without any trouble.

This cellphone has two cameras, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 1.3 MP front camera. It is also able to film 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 frames per second. Additionally, the camera has a couple of nice features like auto-focus, flash and geo tagging.

The Motorola ATRIX HD is equipped with a high-tech 4.5-inches screen with a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, which makes everything look absolutely great. This screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

The Motorola ATRIX HD uses a 1780 mAh medium sized Li-Polymer removable battery providing this phone with an average battery duration. This phone has a reported 9 hs talk time and a 204 hs stand by time according to Motorola.

This phone provides wi-fi connectivity (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high performance internet connection and also HSPA+ data connection, which is a lower speed 4G type or the fastest 3G connectivity, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a Micro SIM card for GSM networks.

This phone also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0, EDR), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your cellphone close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This device is priced only 150 dollars, an incredible price for an impressive device like this. It doesn't matter whether you are looking for a social cellphone, are looking for a device for work or want a cellphone to play tons of games, you will probably love this phone.
