Participants wanted for latest Motorola DROID soak test

Participants wanted for latest Motorola DROID soak test
Motorola is asking owners of the Motorola DROID Ultra, Motorola DROID Mini and Motorola DROID Maxx to take place in a new soak test. You must be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network to be part of the soak test, and must agree to keep information about the test confidential. By updating a small number of handsets with new software, Motorola can test it out without putting a large number of phones at risk.

The update is believed to be similar to the one that recently was sent out to owners of the Motorola Moto X which improved the camera on that device. The focusing will be faster and switching between the front and rear camera will be faster. The voice activated touchless control will be improved as will be call quality. New features also will be coming along with improvements to Moto Care and Moto Assist.

We don't know when the update is coming, but with a soak test about to take place, if you own one of the three new Verizon branded Motorola DROIDs, keep your eyes and ears open.

It kinda works in reverse. You have to sign up for it. I think, but I'm not entirely sure. Just reading the article is all.

You have to make a Motorola ID account on Motorola's help website https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/home/ Then put your respective device (Droid Ultra, Maxx, or Mini) as your primary device, then go to your profile and change your preferences to where you're participating in the Motorola community and a part of the Motorola Feedback Network. Waiting for my email from Motorola not so patiently...

Awesome! Thank you Berserk, I just signed up hopefully they'll invite me. I got the Maxx the first day it was available (same with the Droid X and the RAZR Maxx HD). I always enjoy a good soak...

I just got the email inviting me. You have to fill out a survey, then you should be put into the soak test. They'll send you the update and a link to the private forum when they have enough people.

Woo! It only took a week between soak test and update for the Moto X. Bring on the camera update!

Curious what would be 'fixed' to make calls better sounding. Current sound of calls on the Maxx is pretty good.

My Maxx sounds clean but lacking some treble out of the earpiece. I figured I was just missing the distortion of my old Rezound. And it's been years since I had a landline to compare to.

With reasonable signal strength (4+ bars), the Maxx sounds pretty close to a land line. Better than the Note 2 that was my baseline up to the Maxx. Camera on the Maxx needs help though, so anything that improves on the camera would be a welcome addition.
