Excerpt: This phone isn't the best phone in the world, but it'll do if you want something that looks cool. The sound isn't too great and the quality of the phone isn't that great either. I have had a lot of phones, and this isn't the worse one i've ever had. So I would recommend it if this is all you can get or the only one you want for it's looks. The flash isn't that bright and the keys do tend to stick at times when you really just don't want it to.

Cons: -It would randomly turn off. Midtext, midcall, would never save when it did randomly died -Would frequently freeze (this eventually became almost unbearable) -Little customization available -Not enough features for the price (it was just too simple in my
Summary: The zine has a compact design and is a good all around basic phone. It lacks any real smartphone features but still is a great back up phone.

Good camera OK GPS OK WEB but top notch reliability.
ZN5 Motorola Motozine - Mixed Bag of Great and So-so
19 August 2010
Summary: The Motozine ZN5 phone for T-Mobile is an interesting mix of high end features and things that do not live up to expectations. The high point of this phone is the 5 mega pixel Kodak camera with xenon flash. The combination of hardware and software allows this phone to take really amazing photos. Leave the point and shoot at home if you have enough storage on your microSDHC card to handle the load. The software, Kodak Perfect Touch, takes a decent shot and improves.
Pros: The camera on this phone is the best i've ever had on a camera phone. It takes great photos and the video clips come out pretty good too. The phone is very sleek and easy to use. The screen is nice size and the colors are brilliant.
Cons: I bought this phone in June 09 and have returned it for variious reasons 5 times over this last year! The phone quality is the primary issue. It is not a phone for heavy usage. Texting is cumbersome and web access is very slow.
Pros: Camera takes nice photos, call quality seems to be good - although I'd prefer more volume, nice sized screen
Cons: Keypad frequently bogs down and is a severe, problematic drawback. If you rely on your phone to be an extension of you - and you consider yourself to be a fairly quick draw - you will come to loathe this phone. Menus are not intuitive.
Excerpt: We purchased 4 of these phones with a new T-Mobile contract in spring 2009. We had admired the phones, but took the plunge when they had a one-day only online special to get the phones FREE with a 1-year contract. The pictures on these phones are AWESOME! However, that was the *only* good thing 4 different users liked about the phones. I would never recommend this phone to anyone for any reason. One phone was water damaged, so we have to take that into account.
Pros: Excellent photo quality
Cons: Camera stops working, battery issues, much lag for texting and internet. (see full review)
Pros: I love the camera on this phone. It takes great quality photos, and the USB makes it incredibly easy to upload pics to your computer. Calls are very clear and I've never had any issues with dropped calls.
Cons: This is the worst texting phone I've ever had. It can't keep up with the letters you type and often just freezes completely. I've called T-Mobile 3 or 4 times about this. The keys also make texting very difficult because of the keypad design.
