Need major help, ATRIX 4G or Nexus S?
      #40210 - 03/16/11 01:14 PM

Hey Lisa, I'm on at&t and I'm torn between two phones: MOTOROLA ATRIX 4G and Google Nexus S. What leans me toward the Nexus S is the beautiful (unique) design, stock Gingerbread, and the fact that it will get the updates much faster than any other phone. But, it has no expandable memory, no notification lED, no HD video, and no at&t 3G. What leans me towards the ATRIX 4G is the Tegra 2, 1GB RAM, qHD display, HSPA+ support. But, it has MOTOBLUR and probably won't get Gingerbread until the next OS Android version is out! I honestly don't know what to do. Any help is much appreciated, thanks!

Hey Parker, I use the Nexus S as my main phone on T-Mobile. But for AT&T, I wouldn't since it lacks 3G on AT&T's bands. Android is simply no fun on EDGE. I'd go for the Atrix, unless you want to wait for what's coming this summer on AT&T-- like maybe even an LTE phone.

I ended up getting the ATRIX off contract for $450 (KSL classifieds, brand spanking new). I have an upgrade in June, too. I think I'll stay with the ATRIX until CES 2012. Lisa, weren't you on at&t?

I've got AT&T and T-Mobile... and a pay per month Verizon data plan. Occupational hazard
