Many of the features, like the Webkit browser, Flash support, GPS, Bluetooth technology and Wi-Fi capability, are the same on both of the devices, but there is still some separation here in the battle of the HTC Inspire vs Motorola Atrix.
The Inspire features an 8 MP camera on the back, while the Atrix features a 5 MP camera. Both cameras are capable of capturing 720p video, but the Atrix’s camera will eventually be upgradable to 1080p. Even though the Inspire camera has a higher pixel count, once you get to around 5 MP, the pixel count no longer matters. Both cameras take fairly good images, albeit with a little noise, in good light, and OK pictures in poor light. After extensive tests, I can’t claim that one camera is superior to the other in any significant way.
The Atrix also comes with a front-facing camera for video chatting. It isn’t a major loss for the Inspire, unless video chatting is important to you, in which case it may be a dealbreaker.
I would normally avoid including accessories when comparing smartphone features, especially one that costs hundreds of dollars, but the Atrix laptop dock is powerful enough to demand consideration. The laptop dock is a light, thin device that looks like a laptop. You just plug your Atrix into a special port on the back of the unit, and you can use your Atrix with a trackpad, full keyboard and an 11.5-inch screen. Only a beast like the Atrix can handle this kind of setup, and it truly is one of the best accessories available for any device.
With such similar devices, it can be difficult to pick a winner. Really, the front-facing camera and the laptop dock are the only major differences, so this round will have to go to the Atrix.
