Ice Cream Sandwich for the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX hands-on
From the looks of it all, Motorola needed Google to unveil Android 4.1 Jelly Bean in order for them to finally upgrade its beloved Motorola DROID RAZR smartphones to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Back last fall when the Motorola DROID RAZR was announced, it was mentioned at the time that a future software upgrade would eventually bring the Android 2.3 Gingerbread powered device to Android 4.0. Nearly 6 months later, both the Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX are finally seeing the long time coming software update.

No doubt it’s late to the game, but nevertheless, we’re able to evaluate its presentation against some the other customized Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich experiences out there. Naturally, Samsung’s TouchWiz Nature UX and HTC Sense 4.0 come to mind instantly bearing a drastic departure from the vanilla experience of Android 4.0, but with Motorola’s take, it seems to dispel all aspects of MOTOBLUR. Instead, it simply appears cleaner and less cartoony, which isn’t a bad thing since it’s close to the stock experience. With that folks, let’s take a closer look at what the new software brings to the table to anxious DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX owners out there.
