Oooh, what a great way to start the weekend. A build for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean has been leaked for the Verizon Wireless Motorola DROID RAZR HD. It includes all the goodies you can expect from Jelly Bean, including the amazing Google Now and Google Search features, a faster experience and much more. The software was leaked by DroidRZR and it isn’t official from Verizon Wireless. That means you should make sure you know what you’re doing and understand that it still might not function as well as the final build that Verizon will eventually push. If it was already perfect, Verizon probably would have seeded it already. The installation requires a rooted DROID RAZR HD and, as always, you’re doing this at your own risk.

The device offers brand new hardware components, including a faster processor, and is also equipped with unique parts like a heart rate sensor. Last year’s Galaxy S4 was extremely popular, and Samsung sold millions of units within months of its release.
Is the Galaxy S5 the best smartphone you can pick up right now? Is its camera going to rock your world? Can you really dunk it in the sink? Is the heart rate monitor all it’s cracked up to be?
