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.
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!
Pros: Excellent photo quality
Cons: Camera stops working, battery issues, much lag for texting and internet. (see full review)
Excerpt: Basically, the only reason I bought the phone in the first place was because of the 5 megapixel camera, and it ended up being the only thing I liked about the whole phone. I had a lot of problems with it lagging and it would also turn on and off by itself and do other annoying things like open the...
Pros: large display screen, good camera, came with pretty themes and backgrounds, holds music
Cons: HUGE pictures, screen lagged, unorganized organizer, too large to carry in pocket, powering on and off randomly
Excerpt: Pros: * Awesome camera, great picture quality... although limited camera features, specifically zoom, but this is a phone not a camera... * Nice clear big screen. * Size. Although the phone is slightly tall, in comparison to others, it is slender and fits in the pocket well.
Excerpt: Okay I have had this phone for about 2 months now. It is a pretty decent phone if you are looking for a camera phone. It has a few times just froze on me. Or sometimes it will just reset itself if I have to turn it off due to it freezing on me.
Excerpt: Its a nice phone and takes excellent pictures. I Had this phone for two weeks and returned it because it keeps turning off and coming back on by its self. I had a full charge on the phone and got an inportant phone call. When I picked the phone up, it turned off and came back on.
Pros: Excellent pictures, Nice Design and Features, Love the radio and music player
Summary: I love taking pictures, listening to music and having a phone. Not fun carrying all those around when you can have it all in one. I like phones with bells and whistles. PROS * Great camera, takes great pictures so much better than my regular digital camera.
Excerpt: This phone has an incredible camera and a great list of features; this was of limited use for me since the sound quality of phone calls was poor. Volume wasn't a concern, but incoming voices sounded muffled and were difficult to understand.
