    New to android and atrix!

    So I was getting tired of my iPhone 4, and I decided I wanted to get something different. That and I was getting tired of the iOS randomly locking up. I did love the battery life of it.

    Anyway, so after a few days of searching what phone I wanted, I decided I wanted something with a lot of memory, and I definitely wanted to try Android (all my buddies are android users, but strangely enough, none of them were previous iOS'ers).

    I'll be honest, at first it was kinda annoying, everything was way different, and I didn't understand how a few things worked. So thus, I googled "Atrix Forums" and BAM! Here I am.

    So only owning my Atrix a week, with 2.3.4, I learned how to root my phone, and learned a good bit of things, and finally, I was able to get some apps, and emulators to run! I'm still learning a lot about my phone (and android all together), but I'm pretty happy with it.

    A lot of my peeves with iOS aren't present on android. For instance, on the iOS, when the screen went to sleep, all the things in the background would suspend. Kinda useful, but really annoying when you're using navi.

    However, the inverse, the battery life is only subpar to my iPhone 4.

    But the small cons, (keyboard a bit too small) the best part is that I can actually play CPS3 emulators! Street Fighter III: Third Strike is one of my all time favorite games, and it runs! Runs perfect!

    Anyway, I'm very happy with my phone, and I'll be here for awhile!

    Welcome to the Forum!

    As you already know. Lots of great information here.

    As for battery life, you may want to check some of your widgets settings. Social widgets, Weather widgets maybe updating very frequently which causes battery drain. Most widgets have an Update Interval setting that can be adjusted to update less often and save battery. Just something to check.
    The human brain is amazing. It starts as soon as you wake up and stops as soon as you get work.
