the only reason why i would choose the atrix is the ram. oterwise stay on O2x. I will personally change it only when sgs3 comes out

Atrix has a larger 1930 Mah battery, though i haven't used an atrix, but bigger battery should mean long lasting battery....

I have used an arc, battery life is same as that on optimus rather wrse than 2x coz in that set the light sensor can't be turned off...

Flipped off by the battery? My battery even on a stock ROM has no problem lasting a day of use.
At some point as a professional developer I'm actually going to try writing something/working with/for Android... so far.. I've managed Hello World LOL.

The atrix also has a larger screen and that's gonna eat more battery and more fps in games so no thanks, i wouldn't trade my o2x for any of those but that's personal preference no one can tell you want to choose so make your mind up and deal with the consequences.

Looking at the specs, I'd get the Atrix 2 although I would imagine the Xperia Arc S would give better battery life.

Although it seems -depending where you live- the Atrix 2 is 4G so if you used that a lot, it would drain the battery fast (You can turn it off, just like 3G).

Signal might be weak in your area, if that's the case, no phone will give you long battery times. On tha other hand: isn't it possible that there are no two identical devices, some have slightly better electronic parts placed in, some worse, draining more juice in given time? Some people write about 20-40 hours of battery-life, i personally never could squeez more than 12-16 hours out of mine. Using 2G only, Juice Defender etc. I'm now on hei's Nova HD Plus RC9-18. This gives me about 18-20 hours of avarage use.

There could be something in that. I've just picked up an EVO 3D, and people complain about the terrible battery life. I'm currently on about 1 day 13 hours, and I've being trying to drain the battery lol. Somewhere between 20 to 25% left on it at present. My O2X has been pretty good as well :)

If I go to my office, I know battery life will be bad, as the signal is VERY bad, and is cut out about 80% of the time (it's continually on/off).. so wastes a lot of battery juice.

Atrix II seems to be a better choice. It's got stronger battery, MotoBlur is quite handy. It definitely has longer battery life under the same circumstances. Not to mention the possibility to hook it on a LapDock! Great stuff!
