Design, Form Factor and Screen Display
When it comes to design and form factor, Motorola already has the edge for the simple reason that the iPhone 4 has been around for quite some time now. Much has already been written about the iPhone 4's strengths and weaknesses, so much so that the Motorola people already know the do's and don'ts of manufacturing a smartphone based on what consumers want. So, when it comes to design and form factor, do you think the Atrix 4G edges out the iPhone 4? Let's see.
The Motorola Atrix 4G is slightly wider than the iPhone 4, with a width of 63.5mm as against the iPhone 4's 58.6mm. It is also taller than the iPhone 4 as it measures 117.8mm vs the iPhone 4's 115.2mm. The Atrix 4G is also lighter than the iPhone at 136g vs 137g. So which one looks better between these two? That will depend of course on what you deem as a better smartphone. Some may prefer a slimmer, thinner and lighter smartphone, while others will prefer it the other way around. It's still a matter of personal choice and preference.
Since, the screen size is also relative to the phone's overall dimension, the Motorola Atrix 4G naturally has a bigger screen display than the iPhone 4. It's 4 vs 3 inch, so when it comes to a better display and resolution, the Atrix 4G may seem the better smartphone. However, the iPhone 4 has a higher resolution (640x960) as against the Atrix 4G (540x960). Plus, we all know that the iPhone 4's retina display is quite exemplary and so far nothing has beaten it yet in terms of display prowess.
So, it really depends on your preferences - do you want a bigger screen with low resolution or a smaller screen with better resolution?
