Verizon Motorola DROID RAZR Buggy As Hell Since ICS

By  | 

In June, Verizon users started to get ICS updates to their Droid RAZR and RAZR Maxx phones. This is where the hassle started – owners began to have problems with their handsets and are still waiting for resolution two months down the line.

Verizon Motorola DROID RAZR & MAXX Ice Cream Sandwich update riddled with bugs

Verizon sent out ICS right under the wire – 30th June – and owners noticed the bugs straight off. Many reckoned that a less-than-perfect version has been rushed out to meet this deadline but hoped it’d get tweaked to perfection soon after.

The complaints range from batteries draining, email becoming inaccessible, swipes, gestures and the UI being too slow, problems with screen rotation and browser issues. Some Motorola DROID RAZR & MAXX units became unusable as a result.

Verizon’s busy making a bug fix, and it’ll probably be out shortly, but right now it has no plans to update either the RAZR or the Maxx to Jelly Bean. There’s a rumor that the bug fix might come sometime in September, though, so not long to wait.
