The Motorola Droid Razr HD Seems to Have an Annoying Display Issue

droid-razr-hd-display

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.

  1. I have a razr hd and instead of having that happen, in lighter backgrounds i can see an image of the home page, faded. Does anyone know how to fix that?

  2. I have got a motorola razr HD, when the temperature drops ,the screen becomes crazy but when I refresh the screen by pushing the wake-up button
    it would work properly;but I think my cellphone has to be replaced with a new one by motorola .

  3. I have had the phone since it came out and this bug usually happens to me once a day:(
    Otherwise, I like the phone a lot over my OG Droid.

  4. Its not a glitch, I had to replace my first RAZR HD Max cuz of the same issue, The replacement I got has been perfect..It must be a bad batch of phones..

  5. I’m sorry for all the peeps who have this problem. But since Moto told Atrix and Photon users that ICS was coming and then screwed us I’m glad to see them suffer in anyway possible. Couldn’t happen to a more deserving company.

  6. I’ve had the Droid Razr HD for a few weeks now and I’ve never had this issue. The phone works great, the display is awesome and I wouldn’t trade it for the iPhone 5 or Galaxy S3. Nice job Motorola!

  7. Yes, that’s exactly the problem reported. It’s more likely a software bug fixable with a minor update. Have you been to the store to report this?

  8. This seems more like a software glitch, so it’s hard to say if the Droid Razr Maxx HD would have it too. As of now, we haven’t heard of any such reports.

  9. I had my screen go all purple today when I hit the power button to wake it up as I was leaving work. I had to turn it on and off a couple of times to get my normal screen back. I hope this is a one time thing, if it happens again I hope they are working on a fix for this problem because I really like this phone

  10. My DroidX has four half-inch circular bullet holes in its display. Probably not going Motorola next time around.

  11. I have this problem constantly and have had the phone a week and actually exchanged for another one and still have pthe same problem…. gonna exchange for a galaxy s 3

  12. I have never experienced a problem with my Droid RAZR HD and I’ve owned the phone for almost one month. The display colors/graphics are gorgeous, and yes, it does turn quite a few heads when out in the night clubs of Washington DC. Overall a very solid phone, well built, with an eye catching display.

  13. I’ve noticed this when i have my phone in the cold. If the temperature drops the screen seems to have this error.
