Moto Devour, Moto Droid, and HTC Droid Eris!

I was just wondering which phone everyone prefers. I want the Eris but it is slow. I want the Droid but the keyboard and it only has 3 screens. I also want the Devour, but it only has a 3.0 megapixel camera and I don't know about the screens. I love HTC widgets and it is getting an update to 2.0 or 2.1 soon.

I know people who have the Droid and love it. I personally have the Eris because I couldn't type on the Droid keyboards (real or virtual) and it didn't have Sense UI. Widgets are fantastic - Android is fantastic. I don't find the Eris slow coming from a BB Curve. The camera is 5 mp but no flash - still takes very nice pictures. I don't regret buying the Eris AT ALL. For what it's worth.

I had the Droid for two or three days but probably threw in the towel too soon and returned it. The most frustrating thing with the droid was it would not sense my touches and I was missing calls because I couldn't "open" it fast enough again it didn't sense my touches. WHat is the Sense UI if I may ask? Does this help with the touch screen? I am really regretting going with a regular phone now and may just get a smart phone after all but I do want to be able to answer it before calls go to voicemail! Smile

Google Motoblur v. Sense UI for some opinions and direction. It's helpful. They are both interfaces (Moto v. HTC) used on Android phones. They make the stock Android smoother and easier to use. I don't know much about Motoblur, but it seems to be more appealing to people who use their phones for mostly social networking, etc. I use my phone for almost everything and I love Sense. Unlike UIs that control you, you control the UI, and make it do whatever you want (to a point-there are just a few things HTC doesn't let you get rid of). HTC has their own widgets in addition to Android's. As to sensitivity, I think the HTC is almost too sensitive rather than not enough. But hitting a key I don't want does not put me over the edge, haha. The HTC k...

This is an Android phone. There is no way you can get an Android phone without the $30 data plan at a minimum. There's no reason to own an Eris, Droid, or Devour without data - they are made for internet/multimedia similar to an iphone (but better).

Also, the premium plan doesn't even exist anymore. The old connect and premium plans were replaced with two new data plans, 9.99/25mb with an overage of 20¢/mb, and 29.99/unlmt plan. But anyway back to the original post. It all depends on what you're looking for. The Blur is all about the social networking, the amount of incorporation that can be done between your contact list and twitter/facebook/myspace is phenomenal. The droid is just a powerful phone, lightning fast web browsing, running on the android 2.0 software. And, along with the devour, has that physical keyboard that gives you the option to use the on screen or physical keyboard. Although on the downside there is no physical send/end key. It all has to be done via the ...

Well one thing about the snappiness. Some people mention lag on the phone, but I gotta say, my flip phone has lag problems... I can't tell you how many people I've called because I press a button and it's not doing what I wanted it to do and so I press a button again and then it happens to have loaded up just as I was pressing it.

You're going to deal with lag issues not matter what phone it is. Period. I mean maybe not on a Nexus One but... is T-Mobile really worth it? I personally don't have that kind of money so I'll get what I can take. The Eris seems to be the best for me.

Well no one told my dad Smile

All i kno is my bill is 78.28 [17% off
thanks to RF MicroDevices] and i use the internet allllll the time....

could that plan change be the reason why it doesnt show how much data I've used on my verizon acct??

well if i have to change my plan then i'll just get the eris since its the one i want anyway.

there's no grandfather law or anything to bypass this??

My wife has the premium package on her Env2 still. Most companies will grandfather you until something happens that requires a plan change.

Something to consider, however: the premium plan adds $20/mo. (maybe a bit less with the discount, it depends). None of the android phones are compatible with the premium plan, which means they are going to drop the $20 anyway. So they drop the $20, and add $30, that's a net change of only $10. (less if they discount both the $20 and $30 portions (those employee discount plans vary widely). Slightly more if they discount the $20, but NOT the $30.)

This is what they did when I switched from the Dare to the Droid. (with the added difference that my wife, who is also on the account, kept her Premi...

I've done some research. I will end up changing my current plan. My misunderstanding was that I would have to add $30 to my premium plan. I won't! I will have to get a nationwide plan [the $59.99 one] to keep my unlimited texting and add the data package. This will make my bill incredibly similar to my current one. I will surely get the Droid Eris now that I know this. Thanks for your information. Phonescoop has taught me more than any Verizon Rep in the store.
