Motorola DROID update found on non-soak testers' phones

Motorola DROID update found on non-soak testers' phones
Earlier on Tuesday, we told you that those Motorola DROID Ultra, Motorola DROID Maxx and Motorola DROID Mini owners who had agreed to participate in the upcoming soak test, would receive their update sometime on Tuesday. The update contains improvements to the camera including speedier focusing, more consistent exposure, improved white balance and HDR improvements. Most people who buy a Motorola DROID model don't make the purchase for the camera, but this update does offer some big improvements to the rear snapper. The update also includes the Google Drive promotion that gives you 50GB of extra cloud storage on top of the 15GB that you already get for free.

But the news here has to do with who is receiving the update. The soak test might have ended quickly, or someone pressed a button that wasn't supposed to be pressed. It seems that some owners of the new trio of DROID phones have already started receiving the update despite not being a participant in the soak test. The idea of the soak test is to limit distribution of the new update until Motorola can see that everything is running like it is supposed to.

If you are not supposed to be taking part in the latest soak test for the new Motorola DROID models, but you received the update anyway, drop us a line in the box below.You can even let us know what you think about the update, especially as it relates to the camera.
