Motorola DROID RAZR update brings fixes for camera, data connection and more

Motorola and Verizon started testing a new update for the DROID RAZR early last week that was said to bring a slew of fixes and improvements to the razor sleek phone, and today it appears to be ready to slice and dice. Verizon has just outlined all the information and has let us know the update is on the way and users should be seeing the over the air update very soon.

Some of the changes appear to be quite significant and should really help out this already awesome phone become even more stellar. We thoroughly enjoyed the RAZR and you can see all our coverage and full review from the detailed timeline below. According to the documents provided by Verizon the update should bring plenty of changes and a few of the important ones are:

-- SIM error notification
-- 3G/4G Data Connection stability and reliability
-- Camera Improvements
-- More

The full list of changes can be seen from the change log image below in the gallery. I must say I'm pretty pleased to see Moto and Verizon pushing an update out so quickly since the phone was just released -- but I'm not complaining. It appears this 3G/4G connection problem is a reoccurring issue with Verizon and hopefully they get things squared away here eventually.

The recently released Verizon Galaxy Nexus seems to be struggling from even worse signal problems, so hopefully they get an update as fast -- or faster. As usual for those with a RAZR feel free to wait for the update or give it a go manually be going to menu > settings > about phone > check for updates and then hit GO!

Feel free to drop us a comment below regarding the update and if all goes well.

    Probably not until the end of the month. My RAZR data is constantly dropping connection regardless of whether it’s 3 or 4g and very frustrating. I switched from an iPhone that worked flawlessly and am starting to regret it.

      Me too. My iPhone had no where near the problems this phone has. I am kinda irritated by it. So glad I bought this crap

    I just got the update as well, thankfully.  The data connection dropping issue was SERIOUSLY making me regret the decision to get this phone/carrier.  Hopefully these issues are resolved now.

    Does this update fix the issue of every once in a while, I’ll connect the phone to a USB, and the PC see nothing, also during this event, I can connect it to the charger, and the phone will not charge.  Only after a power cycle will this begin working again…

    Has anyone else noticed that HBO GO and bluetooth A2DP (playback through laptop audio, etc) not working after the update?

    My RAZR has been pretty reliable with the LTE connection stability. I
    hope this upgrade doesn’t downgrade my phone’s LTE stability. (Fingers
    crossed)

    Hey, anyone out there with the Razr and the update want to post some pics and video so I can see if the camera is actually improved? The subpar camera is the main thing stopping me from definitely wanting this phone(or the Maxx).
