Summary: I like this display on this phone, however it is one of the hardest-to-run smartphones that I've used out there. I'm very computer/phone savvy and I still couldn't figure out how to make this phone work with what I wanted it to be doing. I stopped using it the second day that I had been using it and sold it to a friend.
Summary: I loved this phone for the first few days that I had it. Then it slowly started messing up. It would restart itself whenever I tried to do something. It wouldn't download any apps and whenever it did, it wouldn't show up on the applications screen. The back of the phone even fell off in my hand and I couldn't get it back on properly. (A part that shouldn't come off). Needless to say, I stopped using this phone and sent it back.
Summary: I bought my first Devour right before Christmas, using my money I received as a gift. From the first day, it seemed I would have issues with the screen freezing, but I assumed because I wasn't used to a touch screen. Then came times when calls wouldn't come in, or i couldn't call anyone else. My wife would try to call me from in the same room I was in, and it would go right to voice mail.

Summary: I purchased this phone almost 2 years ago, when it first came out. Worst mistake I made. This phone runs Android 1.5, and is NOT upgradable to Android 2.0, which means it can't run the newest apps. Motorola keeps saying they will make the Devour upgradable, but they lie. I am currently waiting for my husband to upgrade his Droid, so I can switch to it, and get rid of a phone that has limited apps, and shelflife.
Summary: All the reviews I read compared it to the original Motorola Droid and basically said it was a bulkier version of it, painted a lovely shade of silver. Not only does it seem slower, and have a terrible camera with no flash, but the directional key on the side is too small and inaccurate to use reliably. Editing a text message or any other text for that matter is a royal pain.
Not a good phone for the long term, but good for a short term fix.

Summary: Phone is not good at all. However, my daughter's Devour was shutting off and wouldn't hold a charge, but she wasn't due for a renewal, so I just replaced it with the same phone. It still shuts off, but at least it will do for a few months until she can upgrade.
Summary: Likes: Sturdy design, spacious keyboard, Android OS. Dislikes: POOR battery life, shuts itself off, requires multiple chargings per day, web surfing is slow & pages don't load, deletes contacts, call quality is POOR, loses 3G even next to Verizon tower at the store. I LOVE Android but this phone is the PITS. Worst one I've ever had. I'm getting rid of it ASAP. Do. Not. Buy.
