Believe it or not, there are still some people on the single-core DROID 2 Global. The DROID 2 was a very solid phone, though it wasn’t (and still isn’t) without a few issues – that’s why Verizon has issued a 19.4 megabyte update today. Some highlights include a fix for the camera where camera settings would reset upon reboot, reduced out of memory errors, resolved device restarts while playing music and a lot more. You’ll definitely want to grab this one if you’ve been having any issues. Head to Settings > About Phone > System Updates to get started. [via Droid-Life]
