Motorola DROID BIONIC to receive update soon

Motorola DROID BIONIC to receive update soon
The Motorola DROID BIONIC is shortly to receive a massive update that improves some of the problems that owners of the phone have been complaining about. Besides killing off the usual assortment of bugs, the update increases to 8 the number of devices supported by Mobile Hotspot, improves the stability of the 3G and 4G data connection, repairs media playback through Bluetooth and improves stability to avoid power cycles for the smartphone.

One of the problems that DROID BIONIC owners have been experiencing is having their phone frozen with a black screen, which required a battery pull to fix. This update will eliminate that problem and hopefully will also remove the whining noise that users have been hearing when using earphones. Another interesting problem that this update addresses is one in which the Motorola DROID BIONIC powers itself back on after being turned off.

This update might have to do with the project that certain owners of the device were asked to get involved in last month by Motorola. The manufacturer often asks for willing participants to conduct a soak test before disseminating an update to all users of a specific model. While the update is imminent, don't jump off a roof if you don't have it yet. Not everyone will receive it at once as the OTA update gets rolled out in waves.

Thats probably something that I really hope fixes those but I was hoping it also adds the same apps as the droid razr

Gotta love that whining noise. It's lame and makes audio quality suck even with the in-ear Beats earphones.

Too bad there's no update that can give it a super thin design and a super amoled display :P

that is exactly why a RAZRMAX will be released very soon----do some research......much better battery life----and you can't walk around with extra battery---because it's not user replaceable--so I guess you spend alot of time near a charger!!!!!

I'm very aware of it sir, however I don't find the battery life to be an issue. The Bionic took way too long to release, has had software issues, way too thick, horrible pentile matrix LCD display, and the list goes on and on. Yes I'm also aware of the RAZR also uses a pentile display but it uses the super amoled advance and it looks way better. All this bad boy needs is ICS and it will be even better than the galaxy nexus. I do my research very well thank you.

Excellent comment #5 arcq12. I guess they overlooked the RAZRMAX upcoming event--being that the RAZR is less than a month old and already a successor in the horizon with much better battery life.....and there 14 day return is already over....but they are choosing to troll Bionic OTA forums to add idiotic comments!!! the way---I love my Bionic.....and even they a OTA is in the making---I haven't experienced any of the problems the OTA is fixing.....

If the RAZRmax was getting a 4.6 inch super amoled advance 720p display with ics by all means I could understand but just a bigger battery? So your phone can maybe last an hour longer? That's what you are going on about? lol the RAZR has way more improvements alone than the Bionic.

I feel sorry for whoever bought the Razr with the Galaxy coming out just around the corner. That's a phone with quit a difference in specs.


Posts: 3131; Member since: Jan 12, 2010

Really? The fact that the only difference is a 720p display and ics? Which of course the RAZR is going to get. Sure it has a slightly larger display but its actually about 4.3 when you have the menu buttons on screen. The RAZR has far superior build quality and design.

Yes Really, Are you telling me that you would rather have the Razr than the Nexus. You are probably that 1% buddy, but this isn't even a conversation then if i have to ask you that. Good luck in life. :(
