Motorola has been doing a great job with their new devices’ software. For example, the DROID RAZR M had some pretty impressive software, which was pretty close to stock Android. Far closer than any other manufacturer would dare to get. But the older devices have been left out for a while. No longer, as the soak test for the DROID RAZR and DROID RAZR MAXX Jelly Bean update is currently out in the wild for those tasked with testing it. And with that update comes a mass removal of most bloat on the device. In fact, here is a full changelog:
That’s a pretty amazing changelog. Not only is Chrome now the default browser, but most apps were completely torn out and replaced with stock Google counterparts (like clock, gallery, music, and more). It’s great to see Motorola admitting that stock Google apps are often better experiences than what it designed. Hopefully this will roll out to all RAZR/MAXX owners soon!
