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 --

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


For social networking addicts, there's no better cellphone interface than Motoblur. Motorola's innovative Android overlay aggregates all your social media accounts, and delivers the latest messages and information updates via what looks like comic book...

Motoblur social networking interface ; 4-line QWERTY keyboard with dedicated number line ; Sleek and tough extruded aluminum casing ; Side-mounted battery and SD card ; Included 8 GB memory card

Heavy and clunky ; Inferior 3.1 MP camera ; Flush on/off, camera access/shutter buttons ; Mysterious syncing problems

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

Motorola Devour Is Hard to Stomach


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

Motorola Devour Review


The Motorola DEVOUR left us underwhelmed from the press shots piqued our interest when we played with its excellent metal casing at MWC 2010 last week, and prompted confusion when we saw how closely it would be priced to the Motorola DROID. With a...

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


Sporting a social networking-friendly interface and a better keyboard than the Droid, the Devour is a good value.

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,...

Motorola Devour (Verizon Wireless)


The Devour's keyboard is much better than the Droid's—it is bumpy, clicky, and well-separated. Like the Droid's keyboard, it has four rows, but there's a big difference: the Devour has dedicated number keys along the top row, but sticks the space bar...

Great social networking integration. Good keyboard. Feels responsive

Cramped screen. So-so reception. Various media problems

Motorola's latest Android phone for Verizon upgrades the Droid's keyboard, but downgrades the processor and screen. We say get a Droid instead.

Motorola DEVOUR A555 Review


The Motorola DEVOUR A555 is now the third Android smartphone to be released by Verizon Wireless after the Motorola DROID and HTC DROID ERIS, but it is the first from the carrier to feature the MOTOBLUR user interface, which integrates social...

Motorola Devour


The Motorola Devour is one of the sleeker looking smartphone's running Google's Android OS available to date. It also happens to have one of the better screen's seen on a cell phone. Although it's only running Android version 1.6, it still has some...
