Motorola’s Droid Razr HD is the company’s new flagship on AT&T which promises to turn some heads. Besides being Motorola’s first smartphone with an HD display, the smartphone brings back some of its Razr goodness from the predecessors (Droid Razr and Razr Maxx). Coupled with great data speeds on Verizon’s blazing fast LTE network, the Droid Razr HD is worth every penny. But according to new reports breaking around the internet, the smartphone is suffering from major display issues, like the one shown in the image above. We certainly didn’t see this one coming, and we’re guessing neither did Motorola. The display apparently shows widely scattered colors which is something you don’t see on a phone of this caliber. It is being pegged as a software bug, as things seem to get back to normalcy once the display is refreshed (sleep/wake). It is yet to be seen if the problem persists all across the board or if it’s limited to a few unlucky units out there. Regardless it’s something Motorola would want to get off its back.
With the holiday season upon us, bad PR like this will certainly not go down well with Motorola. The Droid Razr HD and the Droid Razr Maxx HD follow in the footsteps of their predecessors, with heavily beefed up credentials. The USP for the two smartphones is the new 720p HD display, and if that in itself seems to be faulty, it’s time to wake up. In its current form, the display seems to be in perfect shape. As in most instances, certain software bugs can do unflattering things like this to the smartphone. We would like to know if this little glitch is seen elsewhere, so drop a line below in the comments section if you’ve faced similar issues.
The Razr HD features a beautiful 4.7-inch HD display, a 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 chip, an 8MP camera sensor, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. It’s got all the makings of what you would need from a smartphone, but this little bug could prove to be costly for Motorola. Let’s hope this is an isolated incident as Motorola is struggling to sustain in the market and setbacks like these could prove pretty costly for the company. Perhaps a software update would fix this issue once and for all.
