Motorola has fitted a seamless power of dual-core processor NVIDIA Tegra 2 in it and a 4 inches qHD Multitouch capacitive HD Screen in Atrix. It provides nice colors and allows you to view high-definition content, as it is covered with a layer of glass which is anti-fracture and scratches, known as Gorilla Glass.

Apart from the Tegra 2 dual-core processor at a clock speed of 1GHz, there is 1 GB DDR2 RAM, 16 GB internal memory which is enough for all your requirements, but if you want more, you can add more, storage capacity by adding a microSD card up to 32 GB additional.

It looks better and more beautiful than the previous version.

The phone has a capacity of 1930 mAh battery. It approximately provides approximately 13 hours of backup while doing a continuous operation. The activities include running multiple applications, web browsing and listening to music, recording and video playback. However, you will undoubtedly need to charge the phone every day before going to sleep.

  • The Motorola HD Multimedia Dock has three USB ports and an HDMI port. It means you can connect to a keyboard, mouse, speakers and HDMI-compatible monitor for working at your desk/office. If not this then you can connect to an HDMI-compatible television and home theater audio system.
