Motorola Droid Razr HD, Razr Maxx and Razr M finally get the Android 4.4 update

Droid Razr HD Problem

Verizon is now sending out an update to three of its Motorola Droid smartphones – the Droid Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD and the Razr M. Only yesterday we saw Verizon updating the support page of the Droid Razr HD and the Razr M with Android 4.4 related details, so this was along expected lines. It’s quite a significant update considering that the handsets were launched in late 2012, which shows commitment on the part of Verizon and Motorola to keep their older devices updated.

These handsets feature a skinned version of Android which also explains the delay in the rollout. The update will introduce the customary Android 4.4 specific changes, but will also bring some updates to WiFi, security and a few of Verizon’s apps like Zap. The update has started seeding to devices now although it might not appear immediately on all devices.

Verizon is also sending a minor update to its trio of Droid devices like the Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and the Droid Mini. These devices are already running on an older version of KitKat, so there aren’t a lot of changes here.

Motorola Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr M from Verizon could get Android 4.4 soon

Droid Razr HD

Customers of the Motorola Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr M from Verizon should soon receive an update to Android 4.4 according to changes made to the official support documents by the carrier. There appears to be quite a lot of changes on board the new update as these smartphones run a skinned version of Android unlike the Moto X, which is mostly stock Android.

You can find the complete list of changes as mentioned by Verizon below:

  • A new full-screen mode, color emoji support, improved closed captioning support, stronger security, smarter power use, and more tools and capabilities for better app development
  • Access SMS, MMS, and video calls in one place
  • Google Talk has been replaced with Google Hangouts
  • Supports location-sharing and animated GIF’s through Google Hangouts
  • Full-screen album and movie art appear when streaming/projecting
  • Play, pause and jump to a certain song or movie chapter easily
  • Less invasive status bar
  • Personalize messages with smileys, cars, animals and icons
  • New DROID ZAP app interface, updated to v2.0
  • Android Security Patches
  • WiFi has been improved
  • Roaming has been improved

The update could roll out to devices anytime within the next few weeks considering that support pages are already reflecting these changes. Although we can’t really say anything for sure especially when it’s a carrier like Verizon.

Owners of the Motorola Droid RAZR HD and the DROID RAZR M should be pleased to hear that a KitKat upgrade is coming for both devices.

Verizon DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR HD MAXX receiving software update

This afternoon, Verizon is pushing out a software update to DROID RAZR HD and DROID RAZR HD MAXX owners-which will bring their software version up to 9.20.1. There’s not many new features, other than a few enhancements and bug fixes to SMS, Bluetooth connectivity, and GPS.

Also included in this software update seems to be a security patch, which could or could not be the “Master Key” exploit everyone has been raving about.

The software update is not available OTA yet, but should be within the next few days or weeks.

Motorola Droid RAZR HD and RAZR M in Blue Now Offered by Verizon

[Photo Source: Engadget]
[Photo Source: Engadget]
It is no longer surprising for the Motorola brand to launch its cell phones in striking colors according to Engadget. For instance, during the past, it released the gunmetal gray and gold colors for its other models as the source pointed out. Even though the brand is already under Google, it seems that it is not giving up the tradition yet.

New Color

Recently, it was reported that the Motorola Droid RAZR M and Droid RAZR HD variants are both getting facelifts. Based on the article, new versions of the phones will be sporting a blue hue. However, the bezels and the rear casing of the phones will still be black. In addition, the Droid M’s power button will still keep its silver highlight. On the other hand, only the borders around the screen of the Droid RAZR HD and its power button will get the blue color.

Availability and Pricing

The same source pointed out that the devices will be exclusively offered by Verizon. The good thing about it is the carrier will still retain its pricing for the new versions of the units.

A related news from Ubergizmo said that the Motorola Droid RAZR M will come for free while the Droid RAZR HD will be offered with a price tag of $99.99. The only catch of the amazing offers by Verizon is that both will have to come under a two-year contract. But without a contract, customers will have to dish out $549 for the Droid RAZR M and $599 for the Droid RAZR HD.

Reviews

So far, both devices have gained good overall reviews from various sites and customers. Among the things praised from the two phones are their amazing designs, fast performance, wonderful 4G capabilities, great call qualities and long battery life.

Motorola Publishes Update Roll Out Schedule, We’re Impressed

jelly-bean

Motorola is not known for its timely updates, not since it got into Android at least. But since Google announced its acquisition of Motorola Mobility, we were hoping for things to change. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen drastic changes in that department yet. Companies like Samsung and HTC are still first to roll out updates to their respective lineup of smartphones. That’s not to say that Motorola has completely shied away from rolling out updates. The company did roll out Android 4.0 for selected handsets. And now the company has announced the Android 4.1 roll out schedule for eligible smartphones. As you would expect, the U.S market will be the first to receive the said update. Devices like the Droid Razr M, Atrix HD, Droid Razr HD, Droid Razr Maxx HD will receive the update. It must be noted that the Droid Razr M has already received the said update last month, and the remaining devices mentioned above will receive the update notification this month. For a change, Verizon’s devices are getting the update first, which is something we didn’t see with the Samsung Galaxy S III as the carrier still doesn’t have the update for that smartphone. Motorola has specified that the Electrify M on U.S Cellular will get the update in the first quarter of 2013.

The Droid Razr, Droid Razr Maxx, Photon Q, Electrify 2, Droid Bionic and Droid 4 will also get the update, but the exact date hasn’t been mentioned. It’s really commendable how Motorola is offering the Jelly Bean update to relatively older devices too. Canadian Razr HD and Atrix HD smartphones will receive the said update in Q1, 2013.  So that deals with the American roll out schedule of the update.

In regions like Europe, Africa and Middle East, the Razr and Razr Maxx will get the update somewhere in the future. The Razr HD in these regions will get the update this month while the Intel based Razr i will receive the update in Q1 2013. In Asia however, devices like the Razr M, Razr and Razr HD will get the update on an unspecified date and depending on countries and carriers. However, for unlocked devices, the roll out process should go pretty breezily and on schedule. Similarly in Mexico and Latin American countries, the Razr HD, the Razr i, the Razr and the Razr Maxx will receive the update depending on when the carriers decide to roll it out. Location will be key in Asian and Latin American countries as the update could be country specific. It is expected that the company will provide more clarity when the time approaches, which should be anytime during or after Q1. So finally Motorola users have something to smile about, as most of its devices in the past were known for poor software support. Let’s hope the trend continues and as Motorola increasingly works with Google on Android development, timely updates shouldn’t be an issue at all.

DROID RAZR HD/MAXX Receiving Jelly Bean Update

droid-razr-maxx-hd

droid-razr-maxx-hd

Big Red let us know that we would be seeing the update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for the DROID RAZR HD and the DROID RAZR HD MAXX in a week, and now the update is officially here! Owners of the device(s) will now get to experience in the smoothness that comes with Project Butter. By now, just about everyone should be aware as to what Jelly Bean brings to the table, but if you’re still not sure, Motorola has outlined a few things that was included in the update:

  • Google Now – Shouldn’t your phone be able to anticipate what you’ll need throughout your day? With Google Now, you get answers before you even have to ask. Real-time notifications let you know whether you should pack an umbrella for later in the day or if you need to grab the train to avoid the accident that’s backing up I-495. Plus, you’ll receive the score of your favorite team’s game from last night. Though Google Now can’t make your morning coffee, it will provide you the convenience you want to keep you one step ahead.
  • Voice Search – Want a voice-search experience that doesn’t only work in TV ads? Google Voice Search on Android™ 4.1 lets you speak your questions directly into your phone. Run a quick search that will give you everything from great Italian restaurants on the Lower East Side to the next train leaving from Clark and Lake. And if you want to test Google Voice Search’s foreign language skills, go ahead. It currently supports 34 languages from around the globe.
  • Richer Notifications – Its always good to see a missed call or new email notification, but wouldn’t you rather just take action? With Android™ 4.1, now you can. You just received a meeting reminder and know your call is running long. No problem, you can tap once to email the team that you’ll be there in a few minutes. Missed calls can be returned with a single tap, all right from the notification shade.

There are a plethora of bug fixes in this update, but one thing a lot of users will be happy to hear is that the preloaded Color application has been removed and replace by the Amazon suite of apps, which is what we’ve already seen on the HTC DROID DNA. If you haven’t grabbed the update just yet, make sure to check your device for it! You don’t want to be missing out on the sticky goodness that this update brings! If you have downloaded the update already, make sure to let us know what you think of it in the comments below!

Now lets hope that these phones won’t be dropped like a hot potato and will get Android 4.2 in the next few months or so. Of course, that is wishful thinking, as it’ll take quite some time for Verizon to get their own act together and push the update out after Motorola finishes it. Ah, well, one can still have hope, right?

Motorola sends invites to Droid RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD owners to join software testing

Google’s newly-acquired company, Motorola Mobility, revealed earlier that majority of its devices will be updated to Android 4.1/4.2 Jelly Bean and older models to v4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In fact, the company has been so busy lately rolling out necessary firmware upgrades for devices still being subsidized by any US carriers. Just recently, its relatively new device, Droid RAZR M, received Jelly Bean and the roll out was really successful with only a very few owners complained to have not been able to successfully update their devices.

On Monday, November 20th, Motorola started sending out invitations to owners of Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR Maxx HD under Verizon network, especially members of Motorola Feedback Network, to join in the early preview of the new firmware for the reported devices. While there was no information confirming the new firmware will be based on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, both devices have been listed on the company’s website eligible to receive the latest Android version. Thus, we have a good reason to believe that if there is indeed an upcoming roll out, it would be JB.

“Thanks for joining the Motorola Feedback Network. We are inviting owners of the Droid RAZR HD and RAZR Maxx HD on Verizon to participate in an early preview of a new software release, and provide feedback. If you are not currently using a Droid RAZR HD or RAZR Maxx HD, please excuse and ignore this email,” Motorola’s invitation letter says.

It is apparent that the company is trying to make its devices in the market as competitive as they can be. So, aside from rolling out updates before year 2012 will over, it also offers trade up with $100 rebates for owners whose Moto devices aren’t eligible to receive Jelly Bean.

The company didn’t provide information as to when testers would receive the update package but many believe it would be within this week so that the roll out may happen by the end of this month. With Google on its back, Motorola is pressured to provide updates to older smartphone models.

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.

Verizon will Launch Motorola Droid Razr HD and Droid Razr Maxx HD on October 18

droid-razr-maxx-hd

Verizon has given good news to Motorola fans by announcing the official arrival date of the Droid Razr HD and the Droid Razr Maxx HD. Although the info comes from the CEO of Verizon and not actually via an official release, we’ll take it. The Droid Razr HD (16GB) will be available for $199.99 on a two year contract while the battery centric Droid Razr Maxx HD (32GB) will be sold at $299.99 also on a two year contract. The Droid Razr HD will be sold in Black and White variants while the Droid Razr Maxx HD only has one color variant i.e. Black. So mark your calendars for 18th, which is this coming Thursday. What else is in store for you is for Motorola and Verizon to decide. We hope the initial glitches that were believed to be plaguing the device have been dealt with, as customers would not want to bear the brunt later on.

These two handsets join the list of Verizon’s droids running on the powerful 4G LTE networks. The only difference between the Droid Razr HD and the Droid Razr Maxx HD is the beefed up battery on the latter. The smartphone has a 3,300 mAh battery which promises to last longer than the original Droid Razr Maxx. The Droid Razr HD features a 2,530 mAh battery which isn’t bad at all. Battery life is one area where customers want manufacturers to pay more attention towards, and Motorola is certainly doing that. The Droid Razr Maxx HD promises talk time of 32 hours which is about 12 hours more than its predecessor. Under the hood, both these smartphones pack the Snapdragon S4 dual core chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz with Adreno 225 graphics. The 4.7-inch Super AMOLED display promises great viewing angles and crisp details. There’s 1GB of RAM for smooth multitasking and a microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).

droid-razr-hd

All in all both the smartphones will appeal to a specific set of users, but we see the Droid Razr Maxx HD making more damage as it offers what most Android smartphones don’t, battery life. The device will be sold with Android 4.0.4 out of the box with a Jelly Bean update promised in a couple of months. It should be seen if Motorola will stick to its promise, at least in terms of updates. This shouldn’t be that hard, as ICS and Jelly Bean aren’t too different from each other. We’ve seen manufacturers like Samsung and HTC already prepare updates for their smartphones, so let’s hope Moto has one up its sleeve too.

Motorola Ends Sales of its Laptop Docks and Axes Webtop

motorola-webtop

Motorola announced the Webtop and laptop dock with the popular Atrix smartphone in early 2011. These docks were a huge hit with the customers and managed to grab some attention (initially). But gradually, Motorola started losing traction in the market as newer and better droids hit the market. Motorola didn’t give up on its docks though which were seen even with the next lot of smartphones that the company launched. Some of these were bundled with the smartphone for a premium price while at the same time they were available separately as well. And now, Motorola has decided to end the sales of all laptop accessories beginning with its new range of droids. The Webtop app which came preloaded in most Moto devices will no longer be seen either. In a statement given by the company, it is clear that the company isn’t willing to continue selling these accessories as they weren’t doing that well of late.

Well, while this is bad news for some, we totally saw it coming. Motorola’s idea initially was to make their device owners realize what they can do with their smartphone. All this in a time when no other manufacturer had such accessories, so one would have expected Motorola to go a long way. But sadly, Motorola got it wrong with the prices. The laptop docks were always on the steeper side which meant that the customers rarely went for it. Perhaps, better marketing would have helped. But it has moved on now which is a good sign, and we can see some time spent on accessories that are worthwhile and which would appeal to the masses.

This is what the company said in its official release – “Motorola’s Webtop app helps users extend their smartphone experience to larger screens. While consumers around the world have adopted Webtop and the concept spurred a lot of innovation in the industry, the adoption has not been strong enough to justify continued resources being allocated to developing Webtop on future devices. We have also seen development of the Android operating system focus on the inclusion of more desktop like features. Beginning with Photon Q and Droid Razr M/Droid Razr HD/Droid Razr Maxx HD, we will no longer be including Webtop on our products moving forward.

Users who were expecting to see these fancy accessories with the Droid Razr HD, Photon Q or the Razr M are bound for disappointment. The concept, no doubt was very intriguing, but in a time when people are trying to cut costs and make things as simpler as possible, it didn’t make any logical sense. Motorola has a bright future ahead with a bunch of its Android smartphones heading towards us. It will be interesting to see how the fans respond to this.

Motorola Unveils Droid RAZR HD

There hasn’t been any flagship gadget from Verizon of late, in fact the last was the Droid RAZR which was announced almost a year ago.  The RAZR MAXX was announced during the CES but Motorola had to come up with something that rivals Samsung’s  Galaxy S3 and HTC One X.  The Droid RAZR HD may be that device.

This smartphone boasts of a 4.7 inch revamped screen with a 720p high definition resolution.  This is a massive improvement from its predecessor which did not do so well on the market.  The phone’s bezel is certainly smaller – a step closer to having an edge-to-edge screen.  Another impressive design feature of the RAZR HD is the back Kevlar lamination – something that has grown to become synonymous with Motorola handsets these days.  The lamination extends throughout the back of the device.  This lamination definitely gives the phone more strength without increasing the weight.  It is also splashproof and can resist abuse better than its predecessor the

This phone packs a 1.5GHz Dual Core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor under the hood, I GB of RAM 16 GB of onboard memory, expandable to up to 32GB via the microSD card slot.  We had hoped that this phone would come with Snapdragon’s new S4 Pro processor which is a quad core but I guess the dual core has been proven to be an amazing performer too, this should prove to be a formidable challenge to the One X and the S3.

The Droid RZRZ HD comes to Verizon – a carrier with widespread 4G LTE network.  With this phone, downloading movies and music or streaming them will be a breeze because it is LTE capable and comes with Chrome for Android pre-installed.  However, the most impressive thing about this phone is the battery power which is touted to provide up to 13 hours of fast browsing and video playback.  Its 2500 mAh battery is certainly impressive as it can give up to 32 hours of standby time according to Motorola.  However, if you want better battery performance, you can go for the Maxx variant of this model which comes with a better battery than this.

Core Specs

Processor: 1.5GHz dual-core processor

RAM: 1 GB

Memory: 16 GB

Display: 4.7 inch 1280 x 720 312 ppi screen

Operating System: Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (Jelly Bean upgrade to come soon)

Cameras: 8 MP rear, 1.3 MP front

Battery: 2530 mAh

Others: Bluetooth 4.0, SB 2.0 HS, HDMI, 3.55mm jack, WiFi, GPS, NFC

Size: 67.9mm x 131.9mm x 8.4mm, 146g weight

There is no detailed information on the pricing of the Droid RAZR HD or the exact date when it will hit the shelves but Motorola promises that it will be available before the holidays.

In a nutshell, the hardware of this gadget is quite impressive.  What do you think of this new Droid RAZR HD?  Is it a formidable rival to the S3?

Droid RAZR HD Tutorial Videos Have Leaked

YouTubers are fantastic aren’t they? Sometimes they make some awesome gaming videos, other times they make some parodies that just go viral on the internet and other times people just make complete crap. This isn’t one of those times though. A YouTuber that goes by the name of revowii decided to post up four videos just this morning for the DROID RAZR HD that is supposed to be announced in only a matter of weeks at the September 5th event with Motorola and Verizon.

Each video will walk you through a subject like making calls, setting up your e-mail and etc. While those aren’t really neccesary because frankly, its easy enough that anyone can do it. Anyway, that’s probably not something you really care about. What we do care about is that this is one of the first times that we have seen the device in such a clear manner. Everything has been blurry, crossed out and etc. Not this time though. This time, we get a clear picture of what this brand new device is going to look like. I myself watched the videos, and the DROID RAZR HD looks stinkin’ amazing.

What you’ll be seeing in the following videos (hit the source for a direct link) is a Ice Cream sandwich and Blur build that closely resembles what is on the Atrix HD. No matter though, we’re still excited to see what this beast of a phone looks like! Many of you maybe disappointed though, there has still been no word on what the specs look like at all yet. Unfortunately, I think we’re going to just have to wait until the event with Motorola and Verizon.

September 5th is the “save the date” event with Motorola in New York City. It’s only a couple of weeks away too! There were no other details that were specified though, so it may be safe to assume that we will be seeing the unveiling of the DROID RAZR HD. Though, they could just surprise us with another device that we don’t even know about. Who knows though! It was only last October that Motorola had announced the resurrection of its critically acclaimed DROID RAZR along with MOTOACTV. The DROID RAZR HD seems like a good successor to that and should have some really good specs if rumors prove to be true at all (we all know the rumors will be nothing like what they announce at the even!). Now, unless their is something just out of this world and crazy, this phone probably will not offer anything more than what the HTC One X or the Samsung Galaxy S III offer aside from a slick new design. Other than that, lets just keep our fingers crossed, okay?

I’m actually really surprised that Motorola will be holding an event for this. That kind of indicates that there might just be more to it than just a reiteration of the Atrix HD or DROID RAZR. Who knows though. I do hope they have a surprise in store, I’d love to see a device with new features and hardware. Though, after the leaked videos, I’m not so sure how it’s all going to turn out.

Any thoughts? Let us know in the comments below!

Motorola Droid RAZR HD launch still unknown

Motorola Droid RAZR HD is one of the most anticipated phones of 2012, but Verizon continues to stay silent about it. Motorola’s Droid RAZR HD has leaked out several times since April, but we don’t know how it will look like when it hits the store.

Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX have proven to be very popular phones, but the only downside is that those two phones don’t have a HD screen resolution, and that’s where Motorola Droid RAZR HD is supposed to shine.
Battery life is a big problem with Android devices, and that’s where Droid RAZR MAXX excelled. Droid RAZR MAXX with a big 3,300 mAh battery has found to be consumer’s choice, and Droid RAZR HD is expected to be popular as it will be combining both HD screen quality and a 3,300mAh battery found in the Droid RAZR MAXX.

Previously leaked picture of back plate of Droid RAZR HD reveals that it will supporting Verizon’s 4G LTE network and the back panel appears to be made of Kevlar, which should make it sturdy and protect the phone from the elements and clumsiness.

There haven’t been any clear leaks about what internals the phone will be boasting. There was a leak which showed the GLBenchmarks and it confirms the phone’s 720p display and its speedy Snapdragon S4 processor.
Motorola recently launched Motorola Atrix HD, which is similar to Droid Razr in terms if structure and also boasts 720p resolution HD display. Motorola Atrix HD device features a 4.5-inch HD display, dual core 1.5 GHz CPU, 8MP camera on the back, 1.3MP front facing camera, 8GB of onboard storage (expandable up to 32GB), 1GB of RAM, 4G LTE on AT&T’s network and Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The internals of Droid RAZR HD should be similar to Motorola Atrix HD on AT&T. Droid RAZR HD itself has striking resemblance with Droid RAZR MAXX and Droid RAZR from a design standpoint. From the rear panel picture, Motorola has managed to make it really flat, similar to Droid RAZR MAXX, which suggests there is a 3,300 mAh battery underneath. The device will have a microHDMI and USB ports on the bottom of the phone.

The device’s speedy dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and Qualcomm Adreno 225 GPU, awesome HD screen, combined with a big battery while running 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or Android 4.1 Jelly Bean right out of the box should make the device a hit at Verizon. With iPhone 5 slated to launch in near future, Verizon should consider giving away some information about the device and launch date which will help people take a decision.

We will keep our eyes open for any kind information about the device.
