    Default How does it compare to the S3?

    HI folks. This phone caught my eye. I picked up the S3 when it came out but I don't love it and I don't love the price I paid either. Still within my return period and wanted to know what users thought of this phone. I think it looks cool and I think I would like the size better than the S3. I'm very impatient so I guess my main interest is how it performs. Thanks.

    Lots of reviews out now including engadget and phone arena. Basically it's good for $99(49 at BB) but doesnt measure up to the HOX and the GS 3

    I've only used it for yesterday and this morning, but I've not run into any issues yet, though I'm keeping an eye on battery life as I suspect it might be. You should just go into a store and spend an hour playing with the demo. You'll get an idea if the phone is what you are looking for. In general I agree that the One X and GSIII are a notch above, but for some people the Atrix HD might be just right. I have definitely found it easier to use with one hand for some reason. Not sure why as the size difference isn't that great.

    Wondering about battery life? I am thinking of picking up this phone today and the only thing holding me back is battery life. I have seen a comparison showing 5.5 hrs compared to ~9 hrs for comparable spec phones. That's a big difference. Any thoughts?

    Battery and camera seem to be the universal biggest gripes. Everyone is different but those are big issues to me.

    I've been using the phone for a few now and I am getting about 8 to 15 hours of battery on it.

    I have owned both the HOX and the GS3 and can tell you that each phone has its strengths. I think that this phone holds its own against both of them. The camera works well, just not as consistent as the other two. However as a phone, there truly isn't anything better on at&t. Love the speakerphone and feel that the software touches are fantastic. Overall I am very pleased with this device.
