Review: Motorola Devour Android Smartphone on Verizon Wireless


The Motorola Devour is now in Verizon Wireless stores for The Motorola Devour is now in Verizon Wireless stores for $149.99 on a 2 year contract. We received our unit last week and have had a chance to give it some attention, with a 3.1-inch...

If you are getting this phone just for the Android functionality, you may want to hold out as its still on 1.6 and no updates have been spotted yet. Google Navigation functionality has surprisingly made it on the device, which I love, but you will have...

Verizon Wireless Motorola DEVOUR review


The Motorola DEVOUR, Verizon's third Android phone, brings MOTOBLUR to the nation's top carrier - we see how it stacks up against the rest of the Android army

Price ; Build quality - the slider mechanism and phone as a whole are solid as a rock ; MOTOBLUR is great for social networking addicts ; UI is extremely responsive with barely any lag

Like the DROID, the QWERTY keypad on the DEVOUR simply isn't enjoyable to type on ; Subpar camera ; Old version of Android lacks all the great new features found in version 2.1

Motorola Devour: A lesser Droid

Responsive touch screen, solid slider design

Runs Android OS 1.6, disappointing camera

Motorola Devour review


While Motorola's vanilla-Android Droid has become the most recognizable Android device on the market -- thanks in part to a bombastic ad campaign -- Motorola's primary focus has been on its own custom Blur UI. At least, if quantity of devices are any...

Super solid build quality ; Better keyboard than the Droid ; Sideloading microSD card

Blur UI is pointless ; Rapid Android updates unlikely ; Chunky

Motorola Devour


At first glance, Motorola's second Android phone on Verizon, the Devour ($150 with a two-year contract from Verizon; price as of 3/3/10) looks a lot like the Droid. But after spending some time with the new model, I realized that it couldn't be more...

Responsive touchscreen ; Solid, slider design

Runs Android OS 1.6 ; Disappointing camera

The Motorola Devour has a solid build and great social networking features, but a few design flaws and a mediocre camera make it no match for the Droid.

Motorola Devour Review


The Devour offers a better keyboard than Motorola's other Android devices, but lags behind them in many other features.

Review: Motorola Devour Smartphone


Motorola's latest Android phone (and Sidekick wannabe) leaves a sour taste in the mouth.

Slide-out screen is sturdy, satisfying. Easy aggregation of social networks. Attractive chassis and beautiful build materials

Physical keyboard does not make up for atrocious touchscreen performance. Weakling camera. Good gravy, can someone get a crane to lift this heavy thing

Motorola Devour (Verizon Wireless)


The Motorola Devour brings social networking to the forefront on Verizon Wireless, but it needs a bigger screen to make the most of its abilities.

Great social networking integration. Good keyboard. Feels responsive.

Cramped screen. So-so reception. Various media problems.

Conclusions There's a lot to like about the Motorola Devour. It's good looking, it has a great keyboard, battery life is excellent, and MotoBlur integrates social networking and various e-mail accounts well.

Motorola Devour (Verizon Wireless) Review


The Motorola Devour is a fast, affordable Android phone whose ample slide-out keyboard makes it an especially good choice for heavy texters. We still prefer the Motorola Droid ($199, also on Verizon Wireless) because of its larger, higher-res screen,...

Elegant design, Comfortable slide-out keyboard, Motoblur service for social networking and backup, Supports many Verizon Wireless services, Users can access their photos and contacts from a browse

On-screen keyboard and touch-sensitive buttons aren't always responsive, No multitouch support, Atypical physical keyboard layout, Mediocre camera

Motorola Devour- silver (Verizon Wireless) review: Motorola Devour- silver (Verizon Wireless)


The Motorola Devour has a sturdy design with a functional feature set and a spacious keyboard. It's a good performer, too.

The Motorola Devour runs on Android 1.6, and its display is small for the phone's size. The placement of some controls could be improved, and its camera has few features.

The Motorola Devour is built to last and it delivers on features and performance. We'd make a few usability changes, and we were hoping for more than Android 1.6, but Motorola makes another good Android move.
