Android Jelly Bean Comes to Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX

The Motorola Droid RAZR which released in November 2011 and the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX which released in January 2012, are the two handsets that have finally received the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. Most of the Android phones available in the market are already running on Android 4.1. The release has come late but it is surely the update RAZR Maxx and Droid RAZR users were waiting for since quite a long time.

Update for Gingerbread Powered Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX

Android Jelly Bean Comes to Droid RAZR and Droid RAZR MAXX

The Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update brings features like Google Now, Google Voice Search and extra notifications. When the said Motorola phones were released in the market, the Droid RAZR MAXX was out with Android v2.3.6 Gingerbread OS and the DROID RAZR was available with Android v2.3.5 Gingerbread OS. The new update will make you feel as if you are using a completely new phone. Truly, the new updates truly accentuate the visual appeal of the user interfaces of both the Android phones.

What You Can Expect From Jelly Bean 4.1 Update

For users, who are yet to update to Jelly Bean on their Motorola phones, here is what you can expect from the update. Google Now makes it possible to make your life less complicated by making information available to you anytime you want automatically. It smartly monitors your search history, your location, calendar events, and alerts to give the best possible search results. Voice Search on Jelly Bean 4.1 makes it seamlessly possible to make use of natural language to perform voice search.

Managing your notifications will be lot easier than ever before. When you get a new missed call alert, you can simply swipe towards left or right to send a text message or make a phone call. Some of the other features include Project Butter, predictive keyboard, voice typing, new camera application and many more.

  1. The update sucks. Older Google apps no longer work and you pay for all the “seamless” push data with loss of privacy. Google can read calendar,even private items and can take pix and record via microphone without my knowledge. If you don’t accept their huge privacy intrusion your phone is now worse than it was before! To add insult to injury you are paying for download costs to make your phone worse than it was. I bought the first Droid but Apple is looking better.

  2. The March update SUCKS. For more reasons than I can list. To start they took away speed dial. Every phone I’ve had for the last FIFTEEN years has had speed dial. Second, swype doesn’t work while typing on internet anymore, won’t automatically space, and that defeats the entire purpose of swype when I have to press space bar in between EACH word. Also when u correct word it puts it in front of previous word instead of behind where it belongs. Now I have to get used to regular keyboard again which takes forever to type. Alarm doesn’t come on ascending anymore, just straight to full volume. I could go on and on and I’ve only had update for less than 24 hours. Pissed. Why the hell would they take away speed dial???

  3. “What can you expect from JB 4.1 Update” ? Diminished performance & functionality, frustrating rearrangement of features/settings, broken apps, and many hours spent trying to recover/progress from the update. You know, the typical Google ‘update’ issues. Remember: These ‘updates’ are primarily to expand Google’s data harvesting and marketing capabilities as well as providing more control to the providers. Google is a marketing company, not a hardware/software company. User convenience is down the list of priorities. They’ll put some bait on it with some flashy GUI tricks & a marketing campaign touting amazing new features that few will use and/or have questionable real world value. Sadly, many users will “Gee whiz !” and bite. I fought off ICS on my GB MAXX and after seeing the carnage created by ICS & now JB updates to those around me, I am so glad I did. Everything on my phone works fine. Great battery, strong RF, and its very stable. Much better than the poor souls I know who stumbled into the upgrade morass and now hate their phones. MAXX users; If you’re still on GB, don’t move.
