Android Phone Reviews
Nexus One vs. Motorola DEVOUR

Wirefly Learn » Android Phones » Android Phone Reviews

March 16th, 2010


Key Differences

  • Price: While not available from Wirefly at this time, the Nexus One is available on contract directly from Google for $179.  Currently, the DEVOUR is available from Wirefly at a significantly lower price of $49.99.
  • User interface: The DEVOUR may appeal to those heavily involved in social networking, featuring Motorola’s MOTOBLUR interface built on top of the standard Android platform. MOTOBLUR provides close integration with social networks including Facebook and Twitter, while the Nexus One has the standard Android interface. Of course, the Nexus One has access to Facebook and Twitter through applications freely available from the Android market.
  • Keyboard: The DEVOUR has a comfortable full physical QWERTY keyboard that slides from the side of the phone in addition to an on-screen virtual QWERTY keyboard. The Nexus One has only a virtual QWERTY keyboard. For those preferring a physical QWERTY, the DEVOUR may be the better choice.
  • Power: The HTC Nexus One has a faster processor and more RAM than the DEVOUR, making it a more powerful smartphone. Particularly when multitasking, users of the Nexus One may notice a faster, smoother experience when compared to the DEVOUR.
  • Display: The Nexus One has a large and high resolution display (3.7-in., WVGA 800x480pixels), while the DEVOUR has a somewhat smaller, lower resolution display (3.1-inch, HGVA 320×480 pixels).
  • Camera: The Nexus One has a higher quality 5MP camera with a flash and auto focus. The DEVOUR has a 3MP fixed-focus camera without flash and digital zoom. Both cameras can capture video.
  • Storage Space: Right out of the box, the DEVOUR has 8GB (upgradeable to 32GB) of on-board storage space for music, video and more thanks to a pre-installed microSD card. The Nexus One has only a 4GB microSD card pre-installed (also upgradeable to 32GB).  That’s twice the space on the DEVOUR.
  • Size & Weight: Largely because of its lack of a physical QWERTY keyboard, the Nexus One is a smaller and lighter device than the DEVOUR.
