After way too many delays and broken promises, as well as a fistful of rumors and speculations that proved to be inaccurate, Motorola has just (barely) made it on providing the much awaited Android 4.0 ICS update for the Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx by the end of Q2.
Moto promised its customers to have the upgrade live “sometime in Q2” more than a month ago, and, with just a few hours before the official beginning of the year’s third quarter, RAZR and RAZR Maxx owners can now taste their first scoops of Ice Cream Sandwich.
The update’s rollout was announced on Twitter yesterday by Scott Charlston, one of Verizon’s PR representatives, and, based on feedback from [...]
It’s always a pleasure to be the bearer of good news, especially when it comes to sharing with people what we know about an impending arrival of Ice Cream Sandwich on their Android devices. But before we do, we just want to make sure you know that this hasn’t been fully confirmed yet by Verizon. With that in mind, owners of Motorola Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx may want to mark down June 12 on their calendar, as that’s the date that Verizon apparently will roll out the ICS update for the two Droids.
According to internal sources quoted by CNET, the OTA update to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich for both Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx will be pushed out on June 12. While there [...]
No matter what newer smartphones come out, Apple still retains a dedicated group of fans who won’t budge for anything. At what seems to be the height of the smartphone wars, Motorola has just released the successor to its Droid Razr. Welcome the Droid Razr Maxx, which is bigger but is better than the Droid Razr and practically a baby with its release last January 26, 2012. Today, we’ll see how the iPhone 4S stands up to this new release.Design and Display
Slightly thicker than its predecessor, the Droid Razr Maxx has a thickness of 8.99 mm. The Droid Razr Maxx’s predecessor, the Droid Razr, had the inconvenient camera bump at the top, but the Droid [...]
Motorola has just released the changelog for the impending update that will be rolling out to your Motorola Droid Razr or Razr Maxx in the next few days, to members of the Motorola Feedback Network. This list is a bit different from the one that was recently released by Verizon. Hopefully this update will be out to everyone in the next week or two. We will keep you posted.
Full list below.
Software Update for the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX by MOTOROLA
Introduction We are pleased to announce the new software update for DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX by MOTOROLA. The software update (Motorola Version.6.12.173.XT912.Verizon.en.US) includes numerous fixes and [...]
Since the first talk at CES, Android Authority has been following the Droid Razr Maxx for some time now. Released on January 26, the Maxx sports an impressive 3300 mAh battery. That’s enough for around 21.5 hours of talk time!
Now that is quite special, however there isn’t much difference between the Maxx and its past brother, the original Razr. With models of the original Razr now offering white and purple, along with the previous option of black stirs up a deep battle.Hardware
For hardware it is essentially all the same. It contains the same TI OMAP, 1.2GHz dual-core processor. Tagging along with 1GB of RAM.
With a kevlar sealed backing, you are highly [...]
Yes, we know. The iPhone is the best selling smartphone in history. Does that make it the best? Does it have the latest and greatest technological innovations inside? Sure, it’s a beautifully crafted device for people that love what technology can do, but perhaps don’t necessarily want it to be too technical. It’s difficult to sum up why it is so popular without being offensive or obtuse, but really, it boils down to marketing, ease of use, and these two things contribute to its overall appeal. That being said, it won’t remain like this forever. Apple has a knack for adding technologies to their portfolio in a way that makes it seem like they are the [...]
I hope you guys are ready for a quick comparison of a couple of the most highly desired Android phones currently on the market. Let’s start off by introducing both the phones.
INTRODUCTIONSDroid Razr Maxx
In Corner 1 we have “the rookie” the freshly released Droid Razr Maxx who was released on the market on January 26 2012 by Verizon. The Razr Maxx was born from the brains of a Motorola engineer who thought of packaging a higher capacity battery onto the original Droid Razr by Verizon. The Razr Maxx almost never became as there was considerable hesitation from both Motorola and Verizon on launching a new version so soon after the release of the Droid [...]
Droid-Life has put up an interesting article while they were in the midst of reviewing the Droid Razr Maxx which was released today at Verizon Wireless, that both the Droid Razr and the new Droid Razr Maxx are running the exact same software versions, including the same version’s of Motorola’s Application Platform – also known as Moto Blur. So in theory, OTA’s and ROM’s that are made for one of these devices should work perfectly on the other device. All the specs and features are the same except for the massive battery on the Droid Razr Maxx. We borrowed the Screenshot below from Droid-Life to show you that all the software versions are exactly the same [...]
The Droid RAZR certainly turned some heads back in November. It was probably the most innovative phone I saw all year design and build wise, thanks to its ultra-thin 7.7mm kevlar body. How can many people can say their phone is protected by kevlar? The only reason it didn’t reach its true potential is because a day later the Galaxy Nexus stole most of its thunder, not necessarily because of the hardware or because of its design, but because it had stock Android 4.0. By comparison, the RAZR had what looked like a year old OS, even if it had more recent Gingerbread updates.
Today, Motorola is launching, I guess what they’d consider, a sequel to the RAZR [...]
