Motorola Atrix Vs Nexus S: Market Fight

Author : robin jakson


Motorola raised the bar for Android Phones this year when it launched the Atrix, with an amazing 24 bit qHD display with 960×540 resolution. (275dpi). Colors really pop, and it's fantastic for web browsing and viewing media. Despite the Nexus S having AMOLED display technology with better dark tones and contrast, the Atrix's display is still brighter.

The Nexus S, with its 4-inch WVGA 800×480 pixel display (235ppi) does its best to compete, but loses out in the resolution department. That being said, the Nexus S does feature an AMOLED display which certainly looks better in sunlight, plus it is curved to minimize reflections. Additionally, the colors are rich and really come out in all environments.

Operating System

The Nexus S – out of all the phones currently on the market – is the only one with Android 2.3-Gingerbread. This carries with it a lot of clout, as the refinements featured in the latest iteration of Android are both subtle, powerful, and beautiful.

The Atrix, on the other hand, is on Android 2.2. Motorola has claimed they are working on it, and that updates should be coming shortly. This may fall upon deaf ears however, as we have all heard this time and time again. While we don't have an official date yet, apparently once the Atrix is released in the UK, Android 2.3 will be updated within a few short weeks.

With all of this being said, if you simply can't wait for Android 2.3 (or the latest update of Android for that matter), and want to have a device that is going to be easy to modify, then look no further than the Nexus S


16GB is a lot of storage on a phone. Still, you never know right? Strangely, the Nexus S doesn't have a microSD card slot, so your options are limited once you begin to fill it up.

The Motorola Atrix comes with a borderline behemoth amount of potential storage at 48GB. It includes 16GB on board, and has a microSD card slot, so it's easy to swap content out of and keep topped off with fresh loads of data.

Processor & Performance

The Motorola Atrix features some incredible hardware, with a 1Ghz dual core Tegra 2 processor on board. 2011 is going to be an amazing year for Android phone fans, and for smartphone users in general, as dual core becomes mainstream. The Motorola Atrix also has an unbelievable 1GB of RAM, which is the most of any smartphone so far. It has some interesting functionality behind it too, and has a feature whereby you can connect it to a docking station and turn it into a full fledged computer.

The Nexus S, on the other hand, while still responsive and quick in its own right, simply cannot compete on the same level. The Nexus S has a 1GHz Cortex A8 (Hummingbird) processor, which is single core and can only process one thread of information at a time. Still, a lot can be said for good software, and the Nexus S has the best that Android currently has to offer. To further compound the difficulty of choosing a winner in this category, the Nexus S is an open device, whereas the Motorola Atrix, like all other Motorola devices, is not. The custom modding scene is alive and well for the Nexus, and means that you can customize the performance of it to your hearts content. Currently on the forums, there is a battle raging on about whether good hardware is better than good software. Still, things are going to really heat up when Android 2.4 is released, for it is said to have significant coding enhancements to truly take advantage of dual core processing. Still, a few months in the world of mobile technology is a long time, and it's unlikely that people will be able to wait for Android 2.4, let alone 2.3 to make its way into the latest Android Superphones like the Motorola Atrix.

Winner - Motorola Atrix – but only because it's hardware is so much superior, and holds such promise for the future. The Nexus S actually performs better in some areas still, and is smoother to use.
