Why you can trust TechRadar
The Motorola Atrix 2 has a much-improved 8MP rear-facing camera that took colourful, clear and bright photos consistently, inside and out. You can drag a small box icon around on the screen to change the focus area, which is helpful when people are in the shot.
The Motorola Atrix 2 offers two main megapixel settings - an 8MP mode that produces normal shots and a 6MP mode where the shots are in HD widescreen. You can also disable the flash.
There are scene modes for Portrait, Landscape, Sport, Night, Sunset, Macro and Steady Cam shots. These modes worked as billed for the most part, and you can use them in combination with other settings, such as taking multiple shots in sport scene mode.
To access most settings, you just press the menu button - in landscape, this button is located to the right of the Motorola Atrix 2's main screen. There are a few photo effects you can apply to shots, such as sepia or black and white. Motorola also adds tinting options - say a blue tint or green tint.
It's easy to find these settings and use them. The results were outstanding - photos looked clear in almost every condition where we tried the phone, except those where a normal digital camera often fails - such as a dark room with poor lighting.
