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.

Motorola Devour Cell Phone Review

 

The Devour is the first phone that we reviewed that brought out our strongest emotions. There were things that we loved and things that we hated. We loved the sturdy casing, the good call quality, and the MotoBlur social networking consolidation. We...
