Motorola’s new RAZR HD and RAZR M lineup may be the new hotness, but the Atrix HD is still pretty fresh in our minds. When we reviewed the smartphone, we were largely pleased with the handset, but noted a few software issues, and were upset with the camera’s low-light performance. As if Motorola was reading our mind, a new software update for the Atrix HD was just announced, and it looks like it’s going to take care of many of these issues.
The phone’s camera should subsequently perform better in low-light conditions, and Motorola also says images will be sharper and have more accurate colors. That’s just the start of what this update addresses, and you’ll also get some battery optimization for a longer life per charger. The phone should maintain a stronger connection to WiFi networks post-update, and picture geotagging should now properly follow your preference settings.
Other changes include smoother streaming video performance, fixes to Spotify and some games, and updates to a number of pre-installed apps. The update is going out now OTA, bringing the phone up to system software version 77.12.22.MB886.ATT.en.US.
