My favorite things about the phone are 1) the quickness at which I can navigate. Much quicker than the iPhone. I was looking for a quicker phone because I felt like my iPhone was kind of sluggish. The Atrix has a dual core processor and the speed is very nice. 2) The UI - very smooth and inuitive, and with more options than the iPhone. 3) The LED light that alerts me to messages now. 4) Last but not least, the battery life on this phone is awesome. Even with heavy usage (starting before I go to work in the morning) I am usually left with about 20% around 11 pm at night.

That's just my two cents. I think that Android is the most cutting edge. The iPhone is falling a bit behind. The iPhone is too rigid and slow with updates, while Android phones are practical, creative, and adapting.
I'll be upgrading to an Atrix within the next week. Apparently the battery is Costco-sized and lasts a good long time. I'm not very excited to move to an all touchscreen phone and another platform as I've been using BB's for the past 5 years, but the Atrix and Android have too much to offer to wait for the already outdated Torch 2 to release.
