Last week, we heard that the Android Jelly been soak test was in development for two of Motorola’s smartphones, the Droid RAZR and RAZR MAXX. We told you that it won’t be long until the software update will be released in phases. We were right because US carrier Verizon has formally started to roll out the upgrade to more users.
The software update has 338 MB and it will provide you with all the features of Android Jelly Bean that you have waited for quite a while. There are plenty of functions that come along with the update, but the most important ones are the enhanced notification system, Google Now, and Google Chrome.
So, it’s time to get rid of the old and boring BLUR software and get the new Google application. You’ll see that after you install the Android Jelly Bean update, you’re going to feel that you are using a different phone. It’s good that the phone maker is pushing back its own Motorola software as it requires considerable disk space and RAM. In fact, I’m not surprised at all since Motorola has been acquired by Google. This new Jelly Bean update will allow the users of the Motorola RAZR and RAZR MAXX to experience the true Android OS, making it very close to the vanilla version.
As of today, you should wait for the update notification to pop up, but this depends on how lucky you are to be among the first who will get it. Also, you can manually look for the update yourself from time to time, just to be sure. I know that most users of the RAZR and RAZR MAXX already know how to do it, but in case there is still someone who doesn’t, you should head to Settings, tap About Phone, and then System Updates.
Unfortunately, we don’t know when the other mobile networks will start releasing the Android Jelly Bean update for their versions of the devices, but we expect it will be soon.
But for those of you already got it, this means that you are going to keep the phones for a little longer, or you consider that its time for an upgrade? Especially with several new flagships being released this time of the year.
