ok great for the money
10 December 2012
Summary: for some reason i do not recieve all of my text messeges from certian service providers/////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Summary: Motorola needs to come up w a software upgrade, this doesn't allow for new market called Google play and doesn't even have many apps that are normally built for higher firmware. Other than that the phone works great.
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 didn't much care for this phone. I couldn't text smoothly with it's raised sides and when I would try to download apps, they were never available for this spicific android phone. My contacts were constantly missing and I would have to put them back one by one.
Summary: I really hated this phone. It was slow and turned off every 5minutes I couldn't get on twitter for more than ten minutes without it shutting the app down. The apps were horrible and they never worked. This phone was the worst. That's why I got the iPhone 4.
Summary: battery charged the first time but not fully, bought another battery wouldn't charge at all, but an external charger, and that only worked once as well, so mine is only good as a small android always plugged in.
Good back-up phone. Not ideal for everyday regular use

Summary: its really not a great phone, so you have to expect to get what you pay for. I lost my regular phone. (no insurance and not eligible for upgrade) So this saved me hundreds from retail at the Verizon store, but it definately wont be around longer than absolutely necessary. Its a back-up phone at best. Its heavy, slow, and doesn't run on the galaxy network. I was used to swype, and better all around functions that i now miss out on with this phone.
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.
