Five months after the Motorola Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich updates rolled out, a bug fix for the issues brought to users courtesy of Android 4.0 remains missing, even as Motorola prepares the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR MAXX HD Jelly Bean updates.
At the end of June, on the last possible day in the promised roll out window, Motorola rolled out the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich updates to a bunch of thrilled users who were not only pleased that Motorola had hit its target window but that the update was actually rolling out after a several month wait. Turns out, they got way more than they bargained for.
Almost immediately, it became clear that both Android 4.0 ICS updates for these devices were infested with bugs. Users right off the bat began complaining about a host of issues including poor battery life, Exchange sync issues, calendar issues, a sluggish and slow user interface, and more. These are issues that should not have been there from the beginning and owners have been paying the price for quite awhile now.
In fact, five months later, many of these issues still are affecting owners of the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX and five months later, there is still no word from Motorola or Verizon about any bug fix update to help alleviate these issues.
Over the past five months, we’ve heard from countless Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX owners who are frustrated with not only the lack of an update, but also with the lack of communication from Motorola and Verizon. In the past five months, while there have been rumors, we’ve seen nothing official pop to the surface in regards to a ICS bug fix for these devices.
At this point, with Verizon poised to roll out the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX Jelly Bean updates, it would be a great time for Motorola or Verizon to either confirm an update for the future or even better, roll one out.
This five month point is treading into Verizon Galaxy Nexus territory, a territory that plenty of Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX owners probably never thought they would be trekking into. The Verizon Galaxy Nexus received its first bug fix update more than five months after it was released in December of 2011.
Hopefully now that the Jelly Bean updates for the sequels to the Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX are set to roll out, we’ll see something happen for Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX owners as the updates are five months overdue.
