Motorola Atrix 4G Is the Most Repairable Smartphone: iFixit

by Michelle Maisto
A teardown of Motorola's dual-core Atrix 4G smartphone revealed repair-friendly details, which earned this new Android-based device a score of 9 out of 10 from repair site iFixit. In addition, iFixit called the Motorola Atrix 4G the most repairable smartphone its engineers have ever taken apart. For example, should the user drop the Atrix 4G—as iFixit estimates 85 percent of owners likely would—cracking the display won't cost you the bank, as the glass isn't glued to the LCD. For the most part, iFixit "loved just about everything about this dual-core smartphone. The Motorola Atrix 4G was also likewise praised in recent reviews in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The Times' David Pogue called the smartphone a "beautiful, loaded, screamingly fast Android phone. In the Journal, Walt Mossberg said it was among the nicest phones he's ever tested. Here, eWEEK takes a behind-the-scenes look (courtesy of the engineers at iFixit) at the Motorola Atrix 4G smartphone, which AT&T will begin offering March 6.
