    Android Ice Cream Sandwich OS

    Android Ice Cream Sandwich Operating System

    The DROID RAZR runs the Android 4.0.4 operating system (dubbed Ice Cream Sandwich), which adds powerful new ways of communicating and sharing while improving on the best Android features: easy multitasking, rich notifications, customizable home screens, resizable widgets, and more.

    The updated Ice Cream Sandwich interface features an onscreen navigation bar that replaces the hardware buttons for Back, Home, and Menu found with older Android-powered phones. And with Google+ integration, you can video chat with groups of up to 9 friends as well as easily upload and share photos and videos. Other features include:

    Face Unlock

    You can now unlock your phone with just your face using the Face Unlock option. It takes advantage of the front-facing camera and state-of-the-art facial recognition technology to register a face during setup and then to recognize it again when unlocking the device. Just hold your phone in front of your face to unlock (or use a backup PIN).

    And the lock screen now lets you do more without unlocking. From the slide lock screen, you can jump directly to the camera for a picture or pull down the notifications window to check for messages. When listening to music, you can even manage music tracks and see album art.

    Home Screen Folders

    Quickly access related apps right from the home screen by organizing apps and shortcuts into folders–just drag one app onto another to create a folder.


    Multitasking is even easier and more visual in Android 4.0.4. The Recent Apps button lets you jump instantly from one task to another using the list in the System Bar. The list pops up to show thumbnail images of apps used recently–tapping a thumbnail switches to the app.

    Voice Input

    The new voice engine in Android 4.0.4 lets you dictate the text you want, for as long as you want, using the language you want. You can speak continuously for a prolonged time, even pausing for intervals if needed, and dictate punctuation to create correct sentences. As the voice input engine enters text, it underlines possible dictation errors in gray. After dictating, you can tap the underlined words to quickly replace them from a list of suggestions.

    Android 4.0.4 Features
    • Global roaming in 220 countries
    • Direct access from the lock screen to phone, camera, and text
    • New home screen layout with enhanced launch bar
    • Improved voice input: hold down the search key to dictate emails and text or navigate to an address
    • Face unlock: the device uses the front-facing camera to automatically recognize you when you attempt to unlock
    • Data usage: the new usage center allows you to monitor how much data is consumed each month
    • Android Market for browsing and downloading thousands of free and paid apps
    • Pre-loaded Android apps: Browser, Calculator, Calendar (Google or Corporate), Camera, Clock, Contacts, Email, Gallery, Messaging, Music, News & Weather, Phone, Settings, Video Player, Voice Dialer, Voice Search, YouTube
    • Google applications: Gmail, Google Search, Google Voice Search, Google Latitude, Google Maps, Google Places, Google Talk
    • Google Maps Navigation with spoken turn-by-turn directions showing real-time traffic and 360° views of the destination

    3 thoughts on “Motorola DROID RAZR 4G Android Phone, Black 16GB (Verizon Wireless)

    1. Amazon Customer
      Amazon Customer says:

      Awesome Phone, Great Customer Service I decided to switch from AT&T to Verizon after1) Becoming disillusioned with the quality (or lack there-of) of AT&T’s network.2) Becoming fed up with the “walled garden” of the iPhone/iOS, and the poor performance of the iPhone 3GS in particular.3) Deciding to consolidate cell phone accounts with my partner, who has a Verizon phone.I did my research, and I decided that the Droid Razr met my criteria for speed, flexibility, expand-ability, not being an iPhone, and then the 4G totally sold me on the phone. While I would have like to have had Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box like the Nexus has, I know a software update will come in time. Anyways, I finally bit the bullet when I saw the phone on sale here on Amazon Wireless, so I grabbed it, and have used the savings to buy a dock on regular Amazon, plus an Otterbox case (which actually fits really well to the phone).The ordering process was pretty pain-free, though I had to “submit” my application a few times before it finally took. I was surprised that I had two-day shipping; originally the phone was supposed to arrive via Lasership on the 16th, but to my surprise it arrived a day early on my doorstep! Considering what I’ve heard about Lasership, I’ll consider myself lucky. The Droid box, SIM card, and bonus car charger (thanks Amazon!!) were all snuggly and securely packed, and the box was delivered in fabulous condition.Activating the phone was… Problematic. Amazon Wireless tried at first to resubmit/activate my phone with Verizon, but apparently Verizon did not want to play well with Amazon. The rep I talked to at Amazon, Emily, was extremely nice with me, and went out of her way to make sure I would still get the Amazon Wireless discount on my phone even if I had to go into a Verizon store to activate my phone. Later in the evening I called Verizon Customer Service to get the phone activated, but they were no help and pawned me off onto the Telesales department, who also could not help me activate my phone and blamed the whole deal on Amazon Wireless. So I called Amazon Wireless (at 10:30 at night! These guys are awesome!), and Malachai listened to my situation and whooped some butt into gear at Verizon to get my phone activated for me. You guys at Amazon Wireless deserve serious recognition for the awesomeness you all pull off every day!Once my phone was activated and it booted up, it was WOW! The screen looks fantastic, Android OS is super-easy to navigate once you have the hang of it, and everything is organized in the logical and intuitive manner which iOS is not organized in.Now I’ve only been using the phone for a day, but here are my initial thoughts about the phone:Pros:-The screen is amazing. It beats the crap out of the iPhone 3GS and iPad 1 screens in terms of brightness, depth, and ease on the eyes. I would go as far as to say that it is almost a tablet-quality screen, but it fits in my pocket!-This phone is super fast! Really this kind of speed/responsiveness is what I would expect in a bulky laptop, not a smartphone.-I absolutely love the “smart actions”, and can’t wait to play with them more!-This phone is built to take abuse, without a case on it. The kevlar backing and gorilla glass are actually big selling points for me since I tend to be rough on small electronics. Having a case and screen protector on it (the Otterbox in the Verizon Stores gives you both out of the box!) will just make it last longer in mint condition.-You have apps like Netflix, Kindle, and DocsToGo on the phone right out of the box. I’ve maybe only downloaded four additional apps so far; you’d have to download all of those separately on an iPhone.-Once you experience data service (especially 4G) on Verizon, you will wonder why you did not get this phone (or a 4G phone in general) sooner. It is like cable modem fast!-It is soooo much easier to move apps between screens on Android than iOS.-Price. I got this phone during an Amazon Wireless sale for $40 with plan when it is normally $100.-Amazon Wireless customer service. You guys rock!Cons:-Verizon customer service. It seriously sucks.-This thing eats through battery like a hot knife through butter. An hour of web-surfing on wifi will obliterate the battery; even leaving it uncharged over night will wear it down faster than my iPhone would wear down.-Maybe this is just the con of micro-USB charging, but this phone charges extremely slowly, much slower than the iPhone.-I know it will support the music files I have in iTunes, I’m just not sure how to get all of my music over just yet…-The web browser is different from Safari in several ways. At least right now it appears that I cannot easily group bookmarks into certain categories or move easily between windows/tabs in Android as I can in iOS Safari…
