DROID ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini Jumping Right to Android 4.4.3

Been curious why the DROID ULTRA, MAXX and Mini have not yet been updated to Android 4.4.2? Well, because Motorola ran into an issue and decided to wait until Android 4.4.3 was ready. According to David Schuster, Motorola’s senior direct of software product management, there was an issue with “requirement churn” that didn’t allow them to get out 4.4.2 as quickly as they would have liked. Since that issue arose and they knew that 4.4.3 was around the corner, rather than continue on with 4.4.2 and then make DROID owners wait months for 4.4.3, they made the decision to skip 4.4.2 altogether.

That’s right, DROID owners will jump past 4.4.2 and get Android 4.4.3 as soon as it is ready. Schuster didn’t give us a time frame, but did say that they are “working to get this update to you shortly.” He also noted that he will update us as we get closer to its release. 

Here is the full quote:

I see a lot of comments on a couple different threads asking about the 2013 DROID plans. Now that KitKat 4.4.3 is publicly available I am able to give more information about our plans. As I have stated previously, we ran into some issues with requirement churn on getting KitKat 4.4.2 out as quickly as we wanted too. Once that got resolved last month we had a decision to make with respect to rolling out KitKat 4.4.2 vs. waiting for KitKat 4.4.3, which we knew, was coming out shortly. We were concerned that if we used KitKat 4.4.2 it could be months before we were given the opportunity to get you KitKat 4.4.3. Consequently, we made the decision to wait for KitKat 4.4.3 as the base for our next update to the 2013 DROID family. We are working to get this update to you shortly, as it gets closer I will let you guys know. Thanks for your patience.

Motorola DROID Ultra and MAXX Soak Test Invites Rolling Out

Motorola DROID Ultra and MAXX Soak Test Invites Rolling Out

Motorola looks to be preparing an update for the DROID Ultra and MAXX, with soak test invitations now hitting user inboxes. More than likely, this OTA will be an update to Android 4.4.2, bringing this line of DROID devices up to par with the rest of the top Android smartphones. 

It was all the way back in January when initial updating to Android 4.4 took place, and this is the first actual murmur of development we have seen regarding this device since then. If the test does turn out to be Android 4.4.2, there will be lots of happy Ultra and MAXX owners out there.

When and if the OTA hits your device, be sure to let us know.

Cheers J and M!

Motorola Touchless Controls’ “What’s Up” command is too awesome for words [VIDEO]

Yesterday, we told you guys about a new upgrade to Motorola’s Touchless Controls app that added an awesome new command. Saying “What’s Up” or “Read Notifications” will have the phone read back a list of your recent notifications.

We gave the new feature a spin on video on the Motorola DROID Maxx running Android 4.4 KitKat, and marveled at the fact that it sounds pretty natural and fluid. The app uses context-sensitive information and relativity to give a more naturally-flowing summary of all the things that need my attention.

Simply put: it’s awesome, and while it may not be the most revolutionary thing in the world, it all adds up to that valuable, yet simple software experience Motorola has provided in their latest smartphones. It’s the reason I raved over the DROID Ultra and MAXX in my review, and why it’s compelled me to get behind Motorola for the foreseeable future.

These sorts of features are what we hoped would come of Motorola’s ability to update the app through the Google Play Store, and we’re glad to know they’re taking full advantage of the unique capabilities they’ve enabled in their latest hardware. Watch a quick video demo of the feature in action above.

Want the upgrade on your Moto X, DROID Mini, DROID MAXX or DROID Ultra? Head to Google Play and grab it yourself (but only if you’re on Android 4.4 KitKat). The feature is available in English, Spanish and Italian, with even more coming soon. PS to my colleague Joe from WinSource: the Packers most certainly do not suck, thank you very much.

Android 4.4 KitKat update hitting Droid Ultra, MAXX and Mini

KitKat

Update rolling out 'in phases' starting today

Verizon has taken to Twitter to announce that the Droid Ultra, Droid MAXX and Droid Mini will start receiving their over-the-air updates to Android 4.4 KitKat from today. The update is rolling out "in phases" according to the carrier, following a short soak test over the weekend. In addition to the new Android OS features, today's Droid update includes a new version of the Droid Zap sharing utility with a revamped interface, according to the official changelog.

It's a remarkably quick turnaround for the Verizon-branded handsets, coming a month to the day after the Moto X KitKat updates started, and less than two months after the Android 4.4 open-source code drop.

If you're seeing KitKat on any of the 2013 Droid phones today, hit the comments and let us know how you're getting on.

Motorola Confirms Android 4.4 Kit Kat Updates for DROID RAZR HD, MAXX HD, and RAZR M

Motorola Confirms Android 4.4 Kit Kat Updates for DROID RAZR HD, MAXX HD, and RAZR M

razr maxx hd official1

When Android 4.4 Kit Kat was originally announced 3 weeks back, Motorola confirmed that the Moto X and new DROID family would all see the update fairly quickly. What we weren’t sure about was whether or not last year’s DROID family would see the same joy – that would be the DROID RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, and RAZR M. According to recently updated Motorola update support pages, all three will indeed see the update to Android 4.4.

Screen Shot 2013-11-19 at 11.59.06 AM

All three pages now say that each device will see Android 4.4. No timeline has been given, but I wouldn’t expect to see it before all Moto X variants have been updated and then the ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini. Once those are free and clear, last year’s phones should be up. That’s speculation on my part, of course. No matter what, this is great news.

Camera-improving Update Now Rolling Out to DROID MAXX, ULTRA, and Mini Owners

Camera-improving Update Now Rolling Out to DROID MAXX, ULTRA, and Mini Owners

droid maxx update

The update that should improve the camera performance and squash a bunch of bugs for the DROID MAXX, ULTRA, and Mini – which Verizon detailed earlier this week - is now rolling out to all owners of these phones. Previously, only members of the soak test for each were receiving the update, but as of early this morning, the update has been made widely available. 

Outside of major improvements to the camera, you are looking at a free 50GB of Drive storage through the update, better 4G LTE connectivity, new NFL Mobile app, updated Touchless Control, and improved wireless charging (MAXX and Mini). To see the full list of changes, hit up this post.

We should point out that Verizon’s changelog shows the update as build 12.15.10, however, the update is actually 12.15.15 (as seen above).

Note: If you are rooted, attempting to install this may be a bad move both because you may lose root and it may cause boot loops.

Cheers Lucky Armpit, Jeremy, Javier, Kent, and Elwin!

Verizon DROID ULTRA and MAXX software update detailed

Verizon looks just about ready to begin pushing out another update for those carrying either a DROID ULTRA or a DROID MAXX. This latest update isn’t one that will likely be considered major, however there are a few notable items in the changelog. To begin with though, this update will take both devices to software version 12.15.10 and both will be getting goodies to include connectivity improvements.

acIMG_85441-540x368

Specifically, Verizon has said 4G LTE performance has been improved and will now support faster connections. This update also has Google Drive showing up as a pre-loaded app because of the 50GB storage promotion. Aside from these two items, the remaining goodies include some others that are app related and some that are camera related.

droid-ultra-maxx-update

Beginning first with the “key device enhancements” section and we find the following;

  • Wireless charging UI has been enhanced for better connectivity
  • Motorola Assist has been improved for better stability
  • Google Voice now returns cards with audible feedback when location setting is enabled
  • The latest version of the NFL Mobile app has been added
  • Viewdini has been removed as a preloaded application
  • Device now charges when connected to Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation

Shifting over to the camera portion of this update and it appears as if DROID ULTRA and MAXX users are getting the same items we recently saw added to the Moto X. These touch on sky detection, HDR, the viewfinder and AWB. Breaking these down and we have the following;

  • Sky Detection has been improved to lighten dynamic scenes
  • High Dynamic Range (HDR) has been tuned to trigger more frequently
  • ViewFinder has been improved for more consistent exposure
  • Automatic White Balance (AWB) has been improved for overall color enhancements

That having been said, Verizon has just begun rolling the this update out as part of a soak test. Or in other words, while this update could begin rolling out for all users very soon, it really just depends on how well it performs with the test group. But if nothing else, those sporting a DROID ULTRA or DROID MAXX should know an update will be coming and maybe even keep an eye out for a notification.

DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD Receiving Bug Fixing Update to 9.18.94 and 9.30.1

DROID RAZR HD and MAXX HD Receiving Bug Fixing Update to 9.18.94 and 9.30.1

razr maxx hd razr hd update

Shortly after Verizon released the support docs for a new DROID MAXX and ULTRA update, they also posted up documents detailing a new DROID RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD update. The update is not on the same level as the camera-improving update for the MAXX and ULTRA, but since the phone is a year old, we’re happy to see it still receiving support.

In the update, Verizon and Motorola have updated Backup Assistant to the latest version, made Rapid Charging a thing when the device is powered off, improved HDMI connectivity, and fixed a finicky GPS indicator. Again, nothing major, but an update nonetheless.

Be on the lookout for the update over the next few days.

Motorola Announces Devices to Receive Android 4.4 – Moto X and New DROIDs for Sure

Motorola Announces Devices to Receive Android 4.4 - Moto X and New DROIDs for Sure

moto x

Earlier today, Motorola began teasing the Android 4.4 Kit Kat update for their line of devices. They promised news on their plans, which they have now delivered on. If you cruise over to their device upgrade portal, you can plug in the criteria for your phone and see if it will make the cut. As of this moment, there are few phones on the list. It also appears as if Motorola’s is going to skip Android 4.3 and go straight to 4.4.

So far we’re seeing all Moto X variants on all carriers, including the developer editions. We’re also seeing the new DROID family (ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini). What we aren’t seeing, are the plans for the RAZR HD and RAZR MAXX HD from Verizon. The developer edition of the RAZR MAXX HD does say that it’s jumping to 4.4, however, that could be an error since the others simply say “Future plan coming soon.”

moto x 4.4

To check to see if your phone will receive 4.4, hit up Motorola’s site and follow the instructions.

Motorola Soak Test Invites Rolling Out for DROID ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini

Motorola Soak Test Invites Rolling Out for DROID ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini

DROID MAXX

If you are signed up for the Motorola Forums and own one of the new DROIDs, then you should be seeing an invite to take part in the soak tests the company is going to roll out for the DROID ULTRA, MAXX, and Mini. According to the email, the updates should roll out sometime this week/month, so if you are a current owner of one of those devices, be on the lookout. 

As for what is in the update, we can pretty much expect it to be the same update that the Moto X received just a little while ago. Inside was an update for the camera, which should increase the quality of your pictures quite a bit, as well as a few other feature updates and performance optimizations.

If you take part, and you receive the update, let us know if that’s all we should expect to see.

Cheers A, R, B, and N!

Motorola DROID MAXX Developer Editions also available

Motorola finally announced developer editions of the Moto X this morning, including one for Verizon, but that isn’t all they had in store for you developers and hackers. Just revealed as well is the Motorola DROID MAXX (Verizon) Developer Edition for the crazy high price of just $649.99 which will get you an unlocked bootloader.

ac_IMG_8701

The Developer edition of the DROID MAXX has all the same specs and features as the original model released earlier this year. Complete with a massive 3,500 mAh battery, 32GB of storage, SD support, and that 5-inch HD display all being powered by a Snapdragon S4 Pro dual-core processor. Oh, and we can’t forget it sports Motorola’s X8 computing system. So don’t worry about that “dual-core” term.

Just like the Moto X announced moments ago, this comes with an unlocked bootloader, which means you’ll be able to use the root method detailed earlier this week and have a fully capable device in moments. Developers can get to work on the DROID MAXX, and modders can have their way with it as well.

Screen Shot 2013-09-18 at 12.11.42 PM

For those that want nearly the same experience as the Moto X, only with a bigger screen and much better battery life, along with some Moto UI changes, this is the same price. We were hoping for something slightly lower, but will take what we can get. Hit the link below if you’re interested in getting one yourself.

Motorola DROID Ultra unboxing and first impressions

The brand new lineup of Motorola DROID smartphones are set to march into Verizon Wireless stores and reach the shelves later this month. Confirmed for August 20th the brand new DROID Ultra and DROID MAXX are quite the impressive pair, coming with 5-inch displays and a brand new 10 megapixel “Clear Pixel” camera, we’re taking a first look at the retail DROID Ultra.

acIMG_8537

The DROID Ultra and MAXX are selling in waves from Verizon’s online store, and shipping dates have already been pushed back a week. You’ll need to run into your nearest store come August 20th if you want to get your hands on one. Surely you’ve seen the teaser commercials the past few weeks, and now we’re getting our hands all over the new phone so read on to see what we think.

acIMG_8539

The entire family will be the Ultra, MAXX, and the new Mini, following lasts years RAZR HD, MAXX HD, and DROID M. Everything has been improved this time around, and that familiar Kevlar look is back to rock the DROIDs. In the DROID Ultra and MAXX we’re working with a 5-inch 1280 x 720p HD display, no 1080p here, but Moto says that will help out on battery life. To be honest the screen still looks crisp, sharp, and quite excellent.

Under the display is Moto and Qualcomm’s joint effort with the X8 Computing system. Which is the dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor along with some extra GPU cores, and two cores for voice and computer learning. Running at 1.7 GHz with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, here’s a quick video for an idea on the hardware.

We’ll be digging through the software and all those “touchless controls”, voice commands, always listening features, and Motorola Assist in our full review, which are all quite similar to the Moto X. In case you missed it, take a peek at our Moto X review for an idea of what to expect.

As far as initial impressions go, the Motorola Ultra is a solid and well rounded device. The thin design and rounded edges make it comfortable to hold, but it’s rather slippery. The fake Kevlar look covered in plastic isn’t our favorite, but it still feels extremely durable and well made. Running on the X8 computing system the smartphone is fast and fluid, and just because it’s a dual-core doesn’t mean it’s underpowered. We ran a quick benchmark just for fun but will be digging into everything in a full review coming soon.

Check out the additional pictures and drop us a comment below if you have any questions on the new Moto DROID.

Release date for non pre-ordered Droid ULTRA/MAXX pushed back to August 27

Droid_Ultra_Verizon

Verizon’s been having some pretty bad issues with release dates lately, and it looks like we can add 2/3 of the upcoming Droid family to that list. If you didn’t pre-order your Droid ULTRA or MAXX before today, you’ll have to wait 7 days beyond the normal release date of August 20 to get your hands on it. The Droid MINI is still expected to come with a August 29th release date, as originally reported by Verizon.

[Hands-On w/ Video] The DROID Ultra, MAXX, And Mini – Three Different Phones That Are All Pretty Much The Same

wm_IMG_0232

Motorola and Verizon unveiled the newest members of the DROID family today, and I had some time to play with these freshly-minted Kevlar constructions. My initial conclusion? These phones are all really, really alike.

In fact, it is easier to talk about the ways they are different than the ways they are the same. The Ultra is slimmest of the three (it’s also the only not packing Qi wireless charging, because it would make the phone thicker).

Verizon Makes The DROID Ultra And Maxx Official: Same Familiar Droids, With A Bunch Of New Stuff

We’ve known for a while what Verizon was going to announce today, but the company just made it’s new Holy Trinity of Motorola Droids official: the Droid Ultra, Droid MAXX, and Droid Mini. As expected, all three are successors to last year’s Droid M, RAZR HD, and RAZR MAXX. While the Mini is basically in a league of its own, the Ultra and MAXX are kindred spirits, essentially only being separated by battery capacity and thickness.

The phone uses the same Kevlar-wrapped style as the larger phones, with the naturally updated hardware that you’d expect. It launches on August 20th for $99 on-contract, and pre-orders will be live today.

Motorola DROID Mini, Ultra and MAXX in leaked picture

droid_2013We’ve had no shortage of pictures and information of the new upcoming Motorola DROID line. Today, we see a nice summarizing picture of the three devices. Famed leaker @evleaks tweeted a picture of the front of the DROID Mini, DROID Ultra, DROID MAXX, from left to right, which you see above.

The DROID Ultra and DROID MAXX look identical, not surprising considering the MAXX is believed to be just the Ultra but with a larger battery. The DROID Mini looks just like the Ultra and MAXX, except obviously with a smaller 4.3 inch screen size.

Motorola DROID ULTRA and MAXX ad reveals August 8th release date

There has been countless leaks over the past week surrounding Motorola and their upcoming lineup of phones. We’re halfway into June and they’ve released nothing new this year. However, things are about to change as the Moto X is coming soon, and the DROID ULTRA and MAXX for Verizon are coming too. The latest leaks even show August 8th is the official release date for the new line of DROIDS.

droid-does-teaser-site

The DROID ULTRA has already leaked in the flesh, and this morning the usual Twitter leaksters are even showing press images of the entire lineup. That being the DROID Mini, DROID ULTRA, and DROID MAXX. So when will will you be able to buy one?

According to multiple leaks found by Android Central, Verizon is planning their usual TV assault of “DROID DOES” commercials for the new handsets. They received a copy of both ads, in paper form, and as you can see from the image the bottom line reads, “Only on Verizon 8-8-13″

ULTRA

Then of course the DROID MAXX will be like previous devices, and come with a ridiculously huge battery. That ad spot states 48 hours of worry free battery life. “When it matters, it matters” and we even see hints of voice actions and a few other things.

With these showing the devices being released and available to the public on August 8th, we have a feeling an official event and announcement is coming any day now from Verizon Wireless. Stay tuned.

Leaked storyboard for DROID MAXX promises 48 hours of worry-free battery life

droid-ultra-battery

You can say whatever you want about Motorola, but one thing that cannot be denied is that they have been the most innovative OEM in regards to battery life. They were the first to get a 3,300mAh battery in phone, and their competitors were only able to match them by making bigger phones. We are expecting to see a new line of DROID RAZRs this fall, and there is no doubt Motorola will continue their trend with another MAXX.

This leaked storyboard is for a commercial about the DROID MAXX. We don’t know how early in the stages this storyboard was created, but I think it’s safe to say that the phone’s title won’t be the DROID MAXX. It will probably be the DROID RAZR ULTRA MAXX, but that really isn’t the story. The story is the fact that this commercial is promising 48 hours of worry-free battery life.

We have no idea if the new MAXX will have a larger battery or if Motorola has made some software tweaks, but this is a bold statement, and one that cannot be ignored. I find that battery life is probably the biggest complaint people make when it comes to talking about their smartphones. This will obviously solve that dilemma, but is it enough to get Verizon customers to buy this phone instead of the Galaxy S 4?
