Motorola Droid Razr M owners on Verizon are currently getting an update loaded with various improvements and fixes, but it's not the eagerly awaited Jelly Bean upgrade.
Most Verizon users of the Motorola Droid Razr M were hoping to get a taste of Android Jelly Bean soon, but apparently it's not happening just yet. Big Red is now pushing the software version to 98.15.66.XT907.Verizon.en.US, and although it's not the upgrade most users hoped for, it still has plenty to offer.
The rollout started on Tuesday, April 16, and is a step forward nonetheless. One of the highlights is better Wi-Fi performance, but there are other goodies on board as well. The update is Over-the-Air (OTA), which means that Motorola Droid Razr M owners will either receive a notification that the update is ready for their phones or they can check manually in Settings to see whether the update is available. Keep in mind that for any new update install, the battery of the handset must be at least 80 percent charged and the Verizon or Wi-Fi signal must be strong and reliable.
The new firmware update weighs in at 80MB and brings several changes and bug fixes, including improvements for voice volume at set level and enhancements to Mobile Device Management support and media sync with Back Up Assistant Plus. Visual Voicemail connectivity and video streaming pixilation get improvements as well.
The update further brings improvements in the camera department, with touch-to-focus, notifications and low-light enhancements for those who rely on their device's camera. For more information about this update and the changes it brings, the Verizon Support page offers more details, links to the benefits of the upgrade, as well as instructions on how to install the software update.
The Motorola Droid Razr M seems stuck on Android Ice Cream Sandwich awhile longer, but software updates, regardless of how minor, are always welcome. Verizon did not give any details as to when the Droid Razr M will finally get an update to Android Jelly Bean, so this update will have to do for now. Keep in mind that it might take a couple of weeks until the update hits all devices.
