Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX soak test to start on Thursday

Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX soak test to start on Thursday
The soak test for the Motorola DROID RAZR and the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX will begin on Thursday. The new software version is 6.12.181 and includes a large number of fixes as the manufacturer tries to get the models ready for the upcoming Android 4.0 update.

Among the items listed on the changelist for the update is an optimization of device performance to improve battery life, which does sound redundant with the Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX. The update will bring a new MotoCast widget to allow easier access to MotoCast files. Also, you should notice an improvement in MotoCast performance. Storage settings have been changed to clarify total, available, and used storage space.

The update brings improved Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity, corrected 4G indicator and other changes including better visual voicemail performance. Text messages will now be received in a timely manner (!!!) and pressing and holding the back key while using the browser will bring you to bookmarks. There are also a couple of security enhancements including one that prevents third parties from gaining access to the telephony database and a security enhancement for VCast apps. For the complete changelist, visit the sourcelink.

No, this is certainly not Android 4.0, but yes Virginia, the Motorola DROID RAZR and Motorola DROID RAZR MAXX will get Ice Cream Sandwich. Really. After all, we did see that leaked build of ICS for the DROID RAZR just the other day.

I get the soak for ICS but, this test build I do not; I don't have any of these issues. I don't think the phones are buggin', I think the people are. Though, me' likes' press-holding the back button for bookmarks (coooooool......)

I am really looking foward to see how Motorola implamented ICS to there UI. And by the looks of it i think it will be pretty neat, since they completely changed the look of there webtop in version 3.0

being apart of the support forums but you're randomly selected and only so many people get to take part in them.

Let's just hope these soak tests optimize the Razr to keep it from ending up like the Droid X line up, the ones where customers were given the middle finger for updates. #pipebomb

DROID X got updates; they just never fixed what they were supposed to or were short-lasting. My experience with the DX was one update eventually brought on a different set of bugs. DROID X² was just a disaster IMHO.

Other than the fact it isn't getting ICS, the DX2 wasn't bad to me, I had an X1 i played with, it would shut off at least once a day while listening to music, they updated it to 2.3.6, and said that fixes it, but I had sold the phone by then
