I bought my Droid RAXR MAXX yesterday and the clerk said Android 4.0.4 (Ice Cream Sandwich) should hit it in the next day or two. I ran the software upgrade check and it was ready immediately. A good friend with the same phone just got the OTA (over the air) update today.
If you want the latest and greatest Android software, run the check and get it. BTW it took about 20 minutes to download over WiFi on a pretty fast network. Now that Vzw has "upgraded" me away from unlimited data, I'm not using the 3G or LTE network to get large updates like this.
So far everyone loves the maxx and I'm on the fence...i love all the positives except one....taking good photos and video is important in comparison to what is now available on mobile phones now, and I've heard some reviews state pics are muted in color and not very sharp on the maxx.
How is the camera if you own the maxx?
Also, if camera isn't very good, should I wait for the iPhone 5?
ok, so i got a maxx a bit over a week ago, and did the 3 battery cycles that people posted about online to get the best battery life. i have never gotten more than 36 hours or so before it powers down because of low battery. this weekend, i used it a lot because i was off from work, but after 27 hours of heavy usage it was at 5%, and i'm just wondering if i got a defective one because i've read reviews of people using it for 2 FULL days (over 48 hours, not just 36 hours) and having 30% or 40% battery life left. i'm only asking because i only have another day or two left before i can return or exchange it, and am only allowed one return, and was going to call them today and maybe have them send me a new one. any help or advice would be greatl...

over in the "Verizon Announces Android 4.0 Update List" discussion:
What about Droid 3??
Typical Verizon behavior, update the newest phones, and an odd mix of older phones... This lack of support for EVERY phone that should get this update, and your bloatware apps that you try to push on us, is the reason that people (not me...yet) root their phones. 🙄
anyone got it rooted yet? i currently have razr rooted and getting free hotspot at 10 mps at home or anywhere my razr goes, im guessing the same root method should work for the maxx anyone already have it rooted with free hotspot?
