ICS Download for Razr Maxx - Poll

Member

I received the software download for my Razr Maxx over the weekend.  After hearing/reading the issues people have with ICS, I'm very nervous about downloading it.  My first Razr Maxx lasted a whole 2 weeks before I had to return it for a brand new one.  I've had the current one now for just over 3 weeks and so far so good.  Don't want to jink this phone.

The question is, do we have to install the software?  I know its supposed to do great things, but I don't want to have the issues that others are having or go through the b.s. I had to go through the first 2 weeks of owning this phone.

  You just have to ask yourself 1 question: What does it do for me that I cannot do already? Are you having problems? I know there are enhancements in ICS that GB does not have, but is the upgrade worth the possible pain? If it works fine, and does everything you want, I would think twice about it.

I've had very good luck with it. It's a very large download, so my phone took about a day with some quirkiness and excessive battery useage. Then it settled down and has been great. Its miles ahead of 2.3.6 as a functioning operating system. I'll even go as far to say that I like it better than iOS.

It had a few minor glitches at the beginning. However, everything seems to have been taken care of. I've had no problems since then. My speed is improved, my battery usage is about the same as with GB, and I actually like some of the refinements that ICS brings, like the packaging in Settings and the different things you can do with the Apps Drawer.

Unfortunately, you are given no choice, after a while it will automatically be sent and installed for you. I know, that Stinks and I agree. But I think you'll be happy with it.

I for one, installed ICS on my Razr and I haven't had issues that some have noted. While it isn't a necessity for you to install it, it is a nice upgrade. Here are some benefits of ICS

My thoughts exactly I.C.S. on my 2 Maxx is running Smoothly as well:  My only issue and it's a small one is the Voice search but changing to other keyboards solved that issue..On my first Maxx i'm going to Continue it on Gingerbread as Long as i can for Reference Purposes..

  I have seen posts on this community that said people did not want to do the installation of ICS, yet it was pushed to their device without them authorizing it. You are saying that it is not necessary to install the upgrade? Can you confirm that it was indeed pushed without authorization or did everyone have to accept the installation?

Hey that's Sounds like a Cool Machine:

And i would say if wasn't for the little Snafu Jim that's in the Browser our Razr's are Doing about the Same. But i think reasons for the Minimal to No issues has to do with how the Download is Handled.

ICS was pushed out to everyone however before it will install on your phone you have to tell it to Install. If you push the not now button, it will close and NOT install but will pop back up to do all over again.

I am really not sure why you would NOT install ICS though. I have it on my Razr and my Maxx and it is a huge improvement over the original software I had on these phones.
