    Re: The "I Got an Atrix 3 HD" Thread

    Thanks.. first thing checked when i got it...says is up to date. I have few things think that is reason for poor battery life. 1)wallpaper was from gallery much brighter on display
    2)4g. Many areas I'm in don't have strong 4g seems to use battery trying to maintain 4g...

    Re: The "I Got an Atrix 3 HD" Thread

    Ok learned a few things. 1) using image from gallery as wallpaper...major drain on battery. Switched to live wallpaper stock and great improvement on battery life. 2) dropped lookout and then dropped avast after they both proved to be major drainers as well. Currently running avg mobile for security and anti theft. Although i still require a charging during the day to get thru at least now it is not constantly being charged. Also i tend to use more battery when in areas that are not 4g..

    Good to know about using wallpaper from a gallery. I will make that change at once.

    A little late to the party, but I'm now rocking an Atrix HD. Quite an upgrade from the Atrix 4G. Had it less than 12 hours and still trying to get it customized to my liking.

    Yes, so far I'm liking it. Initial impressions are that it's much faster and the screen is much nicer (colors are more vibrant) than the 4G. The 4G was fast for most things, but there were some apps that were really slow in places (i.e. Gasbuddy), but the same apps fly on the HD. The HD also seems to switch to/from WiFi and mobile data much faster than the 4G.

    I joined the Atrix party late in the game but I'm enjoying it so far. It's a snappy device but the lack of internal storage is a little frustrating. I traded a Windows Phone for the Atrix, never considered rooting the device until I found out I couldn't. I guess that's how it works anyway. The battery life is still up for debate. I'm going through a couple of charge cycles now. I think over time it will be a stronger, all-day performer.

    Well, I've joined the HD club even later, just got mine yesterday. I paid a buck at Best Buy on a 2-year upgrade. I would have gone through Walmart online but they did not have it available. A couple weeks ago they were running the free cardock sale, of course.

    Lots to love here! Great screen, and so light. Once the Best Buy guy handed it over to me, I was really surprised at how much lighter it is than my A2. Battery life so far has been comparable to my A2, but it's only been a day. I work in front of a PC all day, though, so I usually keep it plugged in and charging. Car charger for the road, and a couple places to charge it at home. I'm just going to bite the bullet and buy a big honkin' 32G SD card, go whole hog w/ this bad-dog.

    Only 3 gripes- can't plug it into my PC as Mass Storage, I love that about the A2. I guess there are workarounds, but the ones I've seen are clumsy. I will not be rooting, need to protect it, so I think my options are limited. There's a lot of wasted space around the screen. Of course, a bigger screen would have cost more, etc., but I can't help feeling slightly like it's pretending to have a larger screen. And part of that screen is permanently covered w/ the Google search bar, the price we pay for losing the dedicated buttons from the A2. I liked my buttons.

    Still, very happy so far. See? --->
