There has been a great deal of concern about which handsets and devices will get the upgrade to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. One thing is for sure the Motorola DROID RAZR will be getting the OS update as Motorola have released an updated timeline.
Motorola DROID RAZR Android 4.0 UI looks more original than Samsung Galaxy S3 version
Motorola have said that the DROID RAZR will have Android 4.0 by the end of June. So what will the system look like on the handset and how will it act? Those waiting for it can check out the official videos to find out.
The videos appear to show that Motorola have done a very nice job indeed and the series of videos, which are shown on the Japanese RAZR site show how the lock screen works, how to navigate around Ice Cream Sandwich, use the browser, dial out and it shows the updated notification system working. Some of the videos are in Japanese and some in English. However those waiting for the system will get the idea even when watching and listening to the Japanese videos.
One of the videos shows the widget discovery panels which make it a great deal easier for users to find the widgets they want. Another focuses on the Google Play app which provides users with the ability to check out how much data individual apps are using along with all apps. One thing is clear though, Motorola has done a better job than Samsung with their customized skinning of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. Unlike the Android 4.0 version we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S2 international version and also the Samsung Galaxy S3 recently, the Motorola DROID RAZR keeps more of the stock effects found in Android 4.0. From the electric blue notifications bar (Samsung for some strange reason has retained the Gingerbread green bar for the Samsung Galaxy S3) right down to things like the dialer, Motorola DROID RAZR smartphones will find that the UI looks very similar to that of the stock Android 4.0 UI found on the Galaxy Nexus.
Well enough chatter, check out one of the videos below.
