AT&T Cell Phone?

Ok its another what phone is better thread. I am switching to AT&T, but i don't know what phone i want. The three i am looking at is the HTC Inspire, Samsung Infuse, and Samsung Captivate. I don't want the Iphone so don't suggest it. I know what it has and i like it just would rather have an Android phone.

if you're concerned with proce, Sprint has the best single and family plans for the price.. they beat out.. everybody ... but if you're stuck with ATT, get the Infuse, after the Evo, I'm not gettin anymore HTC products

You should be able to pick up a Captivate for pennies compared to the other 2, which are newer. Something to keep in mind. If you need a phone right now I'd say Infuse, but if you can wait then, the Galaxy S II will come to all carriers in the next month or two, and that's far and away the best phone in the world right now.

I love my Atrix, and now that it was an unlocked bootloader, the skys the limit for ROMs and costomization. the SGS2 is plagued by problems, so i would stay away from it until the US versions have their go around. I definitely want to play with one once it hits our shores...

Its pretty common knowledge that moto builds the best quality phones...just had been locked down too much. Now that the ban is lifted...they can finally compete is the custom side of things.

The phone isn't going to fall apart, so in the end it's personal preference. I like that the Samsung phones are very light given their size, and obivously millions of people agree since they've been selling SGS2's like hotcakes while AT&T's giving away Atrixes.

So because they have sold millions of them, it makes it the best? So wait, using your logic, the iphone should be the best phone in the WORLD...given thats the most sold phone. Hmm..

Okay... so answer my question. What exactly is better about the Atrix over the SGS2, other than build quality?

Any tech blog right now will call the two best phones the SGS2 and the Sensation. It's not some vendetta I have against the Atrix.

Depends on the phone... head over to xda-developers and they'll have everything you ever need, here's the Atrix forum: Motorola Atrix 4G - xda-developers

The kernel basically determines how the phone's CPU and other hardware interact with apps and the software. So here's what I get out of it on my phone (HTC Desire).... double the battery life. By undervolting the CPU, my phone lasts me 2 days instead of one, that's a pretty big deal. It allows custom kernels.

That's kinda what I was battling with Erick161 about in an old thread. Anyway... in the case of an Atrix you might want root to remove AT&T's crapware that they install on your phone.

Ask if you can test out the phones. Some stores will let you, others won't.

Any particular reason you don't want an Iphone? I tried several phones before choosing and there was just no contest. Granted this was back before the Iphone4 was out.
