Droid update to soak testers will come today

Droid update to soak testers will come today
Psst. You. That's right. Yeah, you. Got a second? Are you sporting one of the three new Motorola DROID models? You know. The Motorola DROID Maxx, Motorola DROID Ultra or the Motorola DROID Mini. Well if you are, we have some news to tell you. Those that signed up for the soak test for the trio will start to receive the update today.

Of course, when it comes to the soak tests, those participating must abide by Motorola's rules which means confidentiality is key. Having said that, the update could relate to the recent camera update for the Motorola Moto X, and if there is one thing that DROID owners both big and small like to see for their handset, it is improvements to the snapper. Owners of the updated devices should notice improved color accuracy and focus speed among other changes.

To participate in the soak tests, you have to be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network. The tests are designed to allow a small number of Motorola device owners to receive an update in advance of a wider rollout. This way, if there are any problems with the update, it is contained to a small number of devices.

Anyone notice significant differences? I'm not a soak tester, but I'm looking forward to the official update.

Don't complain. Be thankful that you actually got the update.

These phones are only 2 months old. Shoo shoo.

Haven't gotten it yet, but apparently it's the same update as the X got (with a marked improvement in the camera), but they're also throwing in 50GB of Google Drive for 2 years. So yeah, I'm thankful.

I got updated too but I forgot that I joined their group a while back with my Razr but never updated the device serial number to the Droid Ultra that I purchased. So far the update is actually doing nice.
