Default Who has a devour?

Who here has a devour? Anybody? I'd be interested in what owners think about it. Thanks.

I've had mine for over a month now. I'm pretty familiar with most of the features of it.

How did you get it so early? Best Buy just got it the 25th... really don't understand how resellers have it and Verizon doesn't yet.

Devour is a GREAT phone and compared to the DROID, I prefer DEVOUR. This thing is so zippy with MotoBLUR, no lag at all trying to load things!

I like the droid better. It has a bigger screen, it's faster, and it's running on android 2.1 (though motorola said they will be releasing MOTOBLUR on android 2.1 sometime this month). I like that the devour has a nicer keyboard.

I traded my droid for a Devour and $100. I paid 150 for my Droid, so I made out pretty well, considering that phone phones are off contract

Something really nice about this phone is that it has voice recognition via bluetooth. This was big deal for me. Unfortunately, it appears to be commercial so it won't make it into the android stack.

I prefer Moto Droid than devour. Those sensitive buttons on devour are suck, screen smaller. Droid is way better.

How is the vibration mode on the Devour? I miss alot of calls when my Eris is in vibrate because it vibrates to softly.

It's not that great I don't think. I can't really use it as I will miss calls and texts. I just use silent if I need it to be quiet.

I always complained about vibrates on phones not being strong enough. I can never feel it when its in my pocket but if its ever in my bag and touching the ground, the whole class manages to hear it vibrate.

Me and my wife got our Devours last week on a buy one get one type of deal, we originally opted for the Droid but the Verizon store was sold out so we went for this one instead. i am very happy with our decision, ive never had an Android phone before, coming from a htc touch with winmo 6.5 but this flows so much better. i am addicted to rss feeds so the motoblur is great letting me see what i want all on one nice little page. the keyboard is ridgid and the phone is metal and very sturdy. it may have a slower processor than the Droid but i havent noticed any slowdown whatsoever when running 3d intensive games from the market or streaming video.

I like the Devour and looking at the stats it was better for me.

I can't stand Google Maps and I love VZ Navigator.
It's slightly smaller.
The keyboard is more defined.

It was just all around a better choice.

How? I'm trying just to completely get rid of vz navigator. I've never had a problem with google navigation, plus its free.

Where I'm originally from a lot of their maps are slightly incorrect. You won't get TOO lost, but lost enough to be late and highly annoyed. When I found out we were moving to FL I said to heck with that. That's a big reason I got rid of my BB Curve. The GPS kept crapping out. I went to the Verizon store in Ocala to get my network fixed (I was roaming but my sis who also has Verizon wasn't) and the damn thing went out on the way back home. I got SO lost.


I really hate being lost. HATE.

I guess I don't drive THAT much, usually places I'm familiar with so I don't need to use navigation too much.

Default have it and love it!

I researched and compared the android phones on verizon for ages before finally buying the devour and for what I need this phone is the best I've ever had! A good physical keyboard and a sturdy feeling phone are two very important things on my list and what ultimmately led me to devour.
I'm so happy with this phone and sooo happy to be back in the android world once more!

I love this phone. I've had it for about 3 days now and it's amazing. I love everything about it except the battery life. First day I got it I can understand it dying because it came only half charged. yesterday I charged it and used it and it died in 8 hours. Today after unplugging from 100% charge, after 20 mins of just texting, it's down to 60% battery life and now about 9 hours later just died on me at work. What if I was in need of a phone driving somewhere and it died. I can't stand not having a phone lol so I need to either get a new battery or swap phones. But I want the full keyboard and the Droid's sucks from what I hear. Anyone have any suggestions? I turn off gps at work and the battery keeps dying on me. I'm new to Android/Smartphones but want to learn as much as I can. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thank you.

If you go to Settings > Battery Manager > Battery Profile you can pick between three different modes:

Performance mode - basically what it says, highest performing lowest battery
Smart mode - good performance but keeps battery in mind
Battery saver mode - lowest performance, battery is saving itself (for marriage ba dum tiss)

You can also put the battery widget on your homescreen to easily toggle wifi, brightness, bluetooth, gps, and background data.

What he said ^^^ If your still having problems after that I'd go into a store. I've never had problems with my battery life and I send about 300 texts a day, recieve the same amount and have never had battery issues. This is with my phone in performance mode the whole time too. Are you using an app to kill off the apps that you're not using? Advanced Task Killer does wonders.

Ill look into that app. I put it in smart mode and it works just as good and battery is lasting but I'm still under 50% after ten hours of off and on use so its doing pretty good now

I will be on my second Devour tomorrow... Even after multiple hard resets I still have the random reboots, phone not waking up, and home screen going blank... I really like this device, but at this point, if they offered me an Ally in exchange I would run with it...
