Droid RAZR HD Android 4.4.2

After the Droid RAZR HD and Droid RAZR HD Maxx Android 4.4.2 soak test program begun last week, now we hear that Verizon is now rolling out the new update for everybody.

According Verizon’s website, the new update is labelled 182.46.10 and it arrives with the usual KitKat-goodies such as immersive mode, color emoji support, improved security, new Location menu, SMS integration for Google Hangouts, and better power management, along with transparent status and nav bars, and white status bar icons. You’ll also get Droid Zap 2.0 update, improved WiFi and Roaming, and other bug fixes.

    I was a soak tester of this software, and I can’t believe it’s being released already. A few quick notes as to some problems. First, the battery life’s terrible. It can get empty on standby in less than 24 hours. Also, startup is still slow. However, tap and pay was added along with all the Kit Kat features. Oh, and the startup says “Dual-Core Technology” underneath the Motorola logo.

      I sent my 925XT back a year ago, ’cause it suddenly drops to dead from a full charge inside of 90 mins. Hot pocket was the first clue. All Moto did was a factory reset. Lesson, cool phone, but always have a charging solution available.

    Downloading right now!!!!! I have been searching and searching for this to come. It did not push, I had to go into system updates to get it. I hope you have good luck getting yours!!!!

    Got it today! Looooove it! But seriously guysthe only downfall is that the security feature for 10 failed unlock attempts will wipe the phone. So if you leave your phone anywhere some strange, or even a friend playing a prank, could come by and easily attempt to unlock it 10 times “intentionally” just to erase your data. If there was a way to change the setting where it would not show how many unlock attempts are left this would be good to use, otherwise it is useless.

      In regards to my post, I forgot to mention I went into my security settings and disabled where it’ll show how many unlock attempts are left. However after 10 unlock attempts if you turn this feature off will not delete your data.

    The vibrate/ring switch on the securuty screen is no longer there which is now a pain when i have to shift to vibrate. That should be put back. I cannot answer the phone when someone calls. It wont allow me to press the green phone button, the white circle appears and it freezes and I wind up having to call people back. This is very aggravating because the call is important and i cannot answer. Please fix fast. Droid Razr M.
