Motorola Electrify 2 phases in Android Jelly Bean update

#

Regular readers of Phones Review will know that we always try to give people news about operating system updates for their devices. Today it’s the turn of those who have the Motorola Electrify 2 as the Android Jelly Bean 4.1 update is heading your way in phases. This will bring many improvements to your Electrify 2 user experience so get ready for this update!

The Electrify 2 was released last summer on Android Ice Cream Sandwich and will now get its first flavor of Jelly Bean with benefits such as Voice Search, Google Now, expandable notifications and much more. Motorola has announced the update to Jelly Bean, which is apparently being pushed out in stages so remember, be patient as the rollout may take a little while.

You may soon receive a notification that the update is ready to be downloaded and installed for your Electrify 2 but if you don’t then you can manually check by heading to Setttings, About Phone and then looking for System Updates. There are plenty of new features and improvements with Android Jelly Bean and expanded notifications for example allows the user to organize their mobile lives from one handy place.

With Google Now you almost have a personal assistant to help you with all of the information you need plus it learns what you most search as it goes. Voice Search works exactly how the title implies, hence you can simply ask any question and it will either speak directly back to you or show you a search result regarding your query.

We’d like to hear from readers who have the Motorola Electrify 2 handset. Will you be downloading the update as soon as possible? Are you looking forward to your first taste of Jelly Bean? Let us know by sending your comments.

    DON’T DO THE UPDATE!!! Let the phone update two days ago, and now it won’t connect to wifi, you loose all your apps, it hides the phone book, and various other things I still have to find. Called US Cellular for an hour yesterday, reset the phone, did other things they wanted to no avail…. It looks like Google probably paid some amount of money so they could basically take over the phone. If I would have known what this was going to do, I would have never done the update. Now they want me to make a trip to a company store (of which there are only two left in the state of Indiana because they sold all the others to Sprint) on my time to fix what they screwed up! It was fine until the update. I got the “We have never heard of that” response when I called to see how to fix it.

    Updated on the droid phone and it seems to be working ok. I think the phone is much better now and it has so far made operations seem improved and faster.

    I talked with a computer geek and he said it was a perfect example of very poorly written software. Once again, if it isn’t broke, don’t try and fix it because now it is broke and they have no idea how to make it work right. I am getting tired of drinking their koolaid on this problem. They don’t know how to fix it, don’t seem to care, but are not ashamed to send the next bill out and expect us to just pay and go on….. The US Cellular tech I spoke with said they didn’t know of any other people having problems. I told him to google why my jelly bean update won’t connect to wifi and there were over 5500 posts clear back to August of last year telling how bad this update was. Don’t they ever check any of these sites??
