Today Verizon Wireless is pushing out yet another update for their highly popular Motorola DROID RAZR HD and bigger brother MAXX HD smartphones. We first confirmed the update at the tail end of last week, and today it is officially hitting smartphones around the US. Prepare to accept the update and get tons of improvements across the board.
This isn't Android 4.2.2, but since the RAZR HD was already updated to Jelly Bean instead they've opted to just fix a few software and audio issues, improve camera performance, and hopefully make connectivity even better. According to the details released by Verizon last week, that's exactly what we'll be getting.
The update will bring the RAZR HD and MAXX HD to version 9.16.6 and will run roughly 96MB in size. A WiFi connection is recommended. Verizon states a specific data roaming issue has been fixed, USB connection/deconnect has been improved drastically, and WiFi has even been improved today. Lastly Verizon and Moto confirm the update improves the camera touch-to-focus as well as low light performance.
That's certainly good news. We all know the camera hasn't been one of Motorola's strong points on their smartphones. Again the update is around 96MB in size and you should be getting it anytime now.
