Reviews and Problems with Motorola Devour / Calgary
Showing 1-10 of 11
23 April 2012
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.
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.
Cons: battery life isn't close to what is advertised does not charge from many outlet (planes and cars)even with the Verizon provided kit. random reboots and shut down & locks up with white screen unit needs to be replaced. This is not a reliable device.
Pros: The andriod experience is enjoyable. This phone has useful features and capabilities, and the physical keyboard is handy. The camera and video functions worked well and produce good quality pictures consistently.
Cons: The phone is heavy, and has a short battery life. It's very glitchy, freezing often, and drops calls frequently (even with full signal strength).
Summary: I decided to buy this phone beacause I needed a new phone that let me go online and check my email. I enjoyed this phone for the 3 days that I had it, but then it stoppped working, so it was not worth the purchase.
Pros: There are lots of apps that are easy to download, internet is pretty fast, phone works nearly anywhere. Using google maps is a great way to get around if you don't want to pay for the VZ navigator.
Cons: Battery life is horrible, new glitches appearing every day, gets really hot some times randomly throughout the day, resets itself whenever it feels like it, poor picture quality and has no flash, freezes to where you have to take the battery out.
Pros: It is tough phone, great raised bump keyboard, nice to have facebook updates on the main screen
Cons: This is the buggiest piece of equipment I have ever owned. It was such an issue I had to have the phone replaced twice, yet it still is quite buggy and almost useless. Issues include turning on/off by itself, loosing reception, texts to wrong person.
Cons: The email folders do not have a spam folder/filter. I spend way too much time sorting through spam on this phone to find real email. Deleting spam too often opens the email causing more spam to be sent - poor.
