Review: Motorola Devour Android Smartphone on Verizon Wireless

Mobile Magazine
12 August 2013
  • Conclusion: 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 to download a text-to-speech voice kit from...

Motorola Devour (Verizon Wireless)

PC Magazine
27 June 2010
  • Conclusion: Motorola's latest Android phone for Verizon upgrades the Droid's keyboard, but downgrades the processor and screen. We say get a Droid instead.
  • Pros: Great social networking integration. Good keyboard. Feels responsive.
  • Cons: Cramped screen. So-so reception. Various media problems.

Motorola DEVOUR review

29 March 2010
  • Conclusion: The Motorola DEVOUR is a great smartphone that runs Android 1.6 with MOTOBLUR. The device hardware is really attractive and pleasing to the eye. The one issue we have with the hardware is the keyboard which is a little flat for our liking.

Review: Motorola Devour with Motoblur

5 March 2010
  • Excerpt: It’s tough to be a technology writer when you have to get a new mobile phone. Heck, it’s tough even if you aren’t a writer considering the number of options available. Rather than looking at technology I looked at what I wanted the phone to do for me.

Motorola Devour Review

3 March 2010
  • Excerpt: 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 quote balloons conveniently splayed across the...

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

  • Cons: Camera quality doesn’t compete, Optical pad is finicky, Display shows pixelation when using web browser, Has lower signal strength than the DROID

Review: Motorola Devour Smartphone

26 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Motorola’s newest Android phone, the Devour, is pretty. Its sleek body, aluminum build and fun slidey screen practically yell, “Pick me up! Play with me!” And the first thing you’ll want to play with is Devour’s screen.
  • Pros: Slide-out screen is sturdy, satisfying. Easy aggregation of social networks. Attractive chassis and beautiful build materials.
  • Cons: Physical keyboard does not make up for atrocious touchscreen performance. Weakling camera. Good gravy, can someone get a crane to lift this heavy thing?

  • Pros: Solid build, good call quality, great for social networking.
  • Cons: Overshadowed by the Motorola Droid. Battery life is so-so.

Motorola Devour (Verizon Wireless) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
24 February 2010
  • Summary: 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, superior 5-MP camera, support for Exchange and...
