This was my first Android phone. [May of 2011] and upgraded to Gingerbread.

I loved the Atrix. As far as performance was concerned, it really kept up with all the newer phones throughout 2011. It had a very simple and comfortable form factor. The screen was big enough at 4″ yet kind of discrete compared to newer phones. The battery lasted forever. It was just great. The camera in low light was not that good, which seemed to be the standard for 2011 Motorola phones. Great for outdoor sunshine shots tho. The Tegra 2 processor was impressive for gaming and the intenet.
There were accessories that were very hyped by Motorola, like the laptop dock but it was expensive imo for the limited performance compared to a an actual laptop. I was never interested in the accessories but loved the phone.

Unfortunately the earphone jack stopped recognizing when the jack was in use, after just over a year.  I was stuck using the speaker phone.  It was replaced with a Samsung Galaxy S2 HD lte as they had discontinued the Atrix at Bell. [The phone replacement service thru future shop is excellent. I walked in and they just swapped me for the newer phone in a few minutes of checking the phone was in fact faulty]

The new Atrix 3 HD looks nice. Kevlar backing, less motoblur, HD, bigger screen, nice form factor.
I was never a fan of the Atrix 2 tho.
