The Motorola Atrix 4G and HTC Inspire 4G are the two top Android Fighters on ATT right now. For those of you who are looking just for a highest end smartphone and not the accessory ecosystem that the Motorola offers, it can be a fastest race. Both the Motorla Atrix 4G and the HTC Inspire 4G are Android 2.2 (Froyo) devices at the time of announcement. The Motorola Atrix 4G uses a 1 GHz dual-core Tegra processor to drive a 4-inch screen displaying the Motoblur modification of Android 2.2. The HTC Inspire 4G uses a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor to drive a 4.3-inch screen displaying the Sense modification of Android 2.2. The HTC Inspire 4G has the larger display but the Motorola Atrix 4G has much higher resolution.
The processor speeds are same, but dual-core usually outdoes single-core when discussing processor performance. The HTC Inspire 4G has 4GBs of onboard storage and the Motorola Atrix 4G has 16GBs of onboard storage. The Motorola Atrix 4G has the larger 1930 mAh battery whereas the HTC Inspire 4G has a smaller 1230 mAh. Thus, the HTC Inspire 4G usually runs out of power before the Motorola Atrix 4G when subject to same usage patterns.
The Atrix costs $199 vs. the Inspire’s $99, but the added money gets you a dual core CPU on the Motorola and a front-facing camera. But HTC fights back with a larger 4.3″ display that’s a pleasure to use, and a higher resolution main camera that takes much better shots.
