Motorola updates the DROID RAZR M, brings improvements to the camera, Wi-Fi, and more
If you thought Verizon and Motorola have forgotten about your DROID RAZR M, you're wrong! Verizon is now rolling out a software update for the handset which will bump the software version to 98.15.66.XT907.Verizon.en.US. The update doesn't contain Android 4.2, but that shouldn't bother you much having in mind the phone already runs 4.1 Jelly Bean, so you aren't missing any major features.

Instead, this update will fix a number of bugs, as well as improve some aspects of the smartphone. Here's the changelog:

  •  Improved Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Voice volume has been improved at set level
  • Camera improvements in touch-to-focus, notifications and low light performance
  • In-call audio is routed to ear piece while connected to headset has been improved
  • Video streaming pixelation has been improved
  • Support for Mobile Device Management has been improved
  • Media sync with Back Up Assistant Plus has been improved
  • Visual Voicemail connectivity improvements have been made

By the looks of it, a pretty decent list of enhancements, so what are you waiting for? Go into your Settings and start mashing that Update button! If you don't get the new software momentarily, though, don't panic, it might take a while, as the update is probably being rolled out in stages.

(And i'm going to reply like a fanboy) Get lost if you don't know what Motorola is! The first cell phone was from Motorola in case you didn't know. Don't bother commenting if you don't have anything nice to say. (No offence :P)

This announcement came out 2 days ago... Haven't seen anything yet in Colorado either... I just don't understand 'software available in stages' when giants like Microsoft pushes once a month updates to hundreds of million, if not billions, users all at once.

the update is not that good. my screen stutters or "shakes" to the right on shows like a little yellow box at the very top...when my phone was on 4.1.1 it run like a king, super fast, camera was great actually, and it lasted a long time! now it doesn't.... FIX THIS MOTOROLA! FIX IT ASAP!
