I'm looking to upgrade my phone with AT&T and I'm looking at the $99 price point. I currently have an Iphone which I'm looking to get away from. I've been looking at the Infuse and the Atrix 2. I've seen a lot of reviews and opinions on the infuse but not so much on the Atrix 2 since it's relatively new. Anybody have a preference? One thing to keep in mind is that I have no experience with Android phones. From what I've read, it sounds like each manufacturer has their own UI so if there's a difference between them that you feel stands out, let me know. Also, I know the Infuse runs Froyo (I'm not aware of an upgrade yet) and the Atrix 2 runs Gingerbread so please let me know of any significant differences there.
The Samsung Infuse has been very popular because it has an extra-large 4.5" Super AMOLED Plus display with extremely vivid colors. The Atrix 2 has a few tricks though, like a dual core CPU and a higher resolution 4.3" display. Gingerbread vs. Froyo won't be an obvious difference to an Android newbie, but it does offer some speed and minor UI improvements along with Google video chat. It's not an easy choice. The Samsung wins for the very large Super AMOLED Plus display, but the Atrix 2 wins for greater pocket-ability, a faster CPU and higher resolution display.
