Cell Phone Comparisons
LG Revolution vs. Motorola Atrix

Wirefly Learn » Resources » Cell Phone Comparisons

January 18th, 2011


Technology never rests, so the phones we will see in the next few weeks will have more power than the phones that are now in our pockets. With so many new devices slated for introduction soon, there are many questions about how they stack up against each other. For example, how does the Motorola Atrix compare vs. the LG Revolution? Both are 4G phones and both have plenty of power. Running on AT&T’s speedy HSPA+ 4G network, the Atrix 4G has a unique docking keyboard that turns the Atrix 4G from a cell phone into a compact computer. Like the Atrix 4G, the LG Revolution has 4G data speed – in this case, using Verizon’s swift LTE network. In addition, the Revolution has a big (4.3-inch) and bright screen and a front-facing camera that makes it possible to have a video chat or watch a movie. How do these two cell phones compare against each other?
