On the Verizon models the new Ice Cream Sandwich update brings global roaming, improvements in system stability and performance and enhanced support for the mobile hotspot feature.

As abut the new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandiwch itself, it brings new options for the lock screen, customizable widgets that can be resized, an improved multitasking system, data traffic counter, a new and improved camera application and user interface and tab dedicated to widgets and apps.

Motorola Droid RAZR was released in November 2011 and it sports a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 540 x 960, 1GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage (microSD card slot available) and an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, face detection, image stabilization and support for full HD video recording, while the secondary, user-facing camera is useful when it comes to video calls and it can capture HD videos. The smartphone is motorized by a dual-core 1.2 GHz TI OMAP 4430 chipset and sports a 1,780 mAh battery.

On the other hand, Droid RAZR’s bigger brother, Motorola Droid RAZR Maxx is a bit thicker (9 mm instead of 7.1) but it sports a 3,300 mAh battery and it has 8 GB of internal storage instead of 16 GB. Except for the aforementioned details, the two high-end Motorola smartphones share the same technical specifications.
