Average Features, Good Call Quality, Poor Build Quality

  • Summary: Experience: I have owned this phone for 12 months. Features: In terms of features it is about average. It has a dedicated camera/camcorder button which is convenient. It also has access to verizon's new live tv service which is nice to use if you live in an area that offers it. The camera is above slightly average quality, the pictures that it takes are not amazing but but definitely not poor. Call Quality: Excellent.

User Review

  • Summary: What attracted me to this phone was the curve when it opens - yes I was that naive! On paper this is a pretty good phone; the camera takes pretty decent photos, even when you take them while moving, the calls are normally fairly clear, and the screen has a fairly nice resolution. However! The operating system of the z8 has a tendency to crash or stall, seemingly at random, and completely freeze the screen, or just turn the phone off.
  • Pros: Camera takes fairly decent photos, and the handset looks snappy
  • Cons: The operating system has a tendecy to crash

Great potential

  • Summary: I saw this phone on the Stuff.TV video podcast a while back and instantly fell in love with it. The spec was amazing, and the kick slider design was just brilliant. It's shame really, because as much as I love this phone, i'm gonna have to replace it. I've had it since October and to be honest, i've had nothing but problems since.

It is only beautiful...

Pham, Hoang Minh, Amazon

  • Summary: Two stars for its beauty. The rest is completely useless. Here is the reasons based on my using purpose: First, it has very very poor battery.Its standby mode battery life is just 1/11 of my old lovely W810i in talking time. Second, Recording. It is not in amr. format! Thus, it is rubbish for me in lectures. For instant, in SE, recording more than an hour lecture just take me about 4mb, compare to Z8: 4mb for around 5 minutes!

Was good to start with.

Mr. R. Marsh, Amazon
28 January 2008
  • Summary: I got the phone because it looks great and is quite quirky, there was also the bonus of being given a full length film to watch on the phone. After having it several months I wish I had never bothered with it. It crashes almost every day which as you will read from another review this can only be corrected by removing the battery completely (which can also be a bit difficult). The battery life is very poor even when the more excited features are not even used.

mit guter Software wäre es ein gutes Handy

dermatologe, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Wir haben das Handy jetzt einen Monat. Bei einem Spiel blieb das Handy abgestürzt und ließ sich nicht mehr aktivieren, also: Akku raus hochfahren- immer das gleiche. Wir haben das Spiel jetzt gelöscht. Trotzdem stürzt es immer häufiger ab. Jetzt kein Display mehr zu sehen- also dauerhafter Absturz. Wir werden es zur Reparatur einsenden müssen- toll.
  • Pros: gute Kamera, gute Musik
  • Cons: Abstürze ohne Ende, Schwere Bedienbarkeit

Dedos de pianista y paciencia...

MissAlfonso, Ciao
16 April 2009
  • Summary: Desde el primer momento me dio problemas con la batería (insertaba el cargador y no lo reconocía) lo mandaron al servicio técnico y parece ser que no era el móvil, sino el propio cargador. Compré uno y me pasó lo mismo, compré un segundo y se recalienta... En mi opinión el manejo del móvil no es especialmente fácil. Lo tengo desde hace casi un año y todavía no he logrado controlar el teclado a la hora de escribir un sms.
  • Pros: La pantalla es grande .  La calidad de sonido es buena .   Las fotos y el vídeo muy bien .
  • Cons: El manejo es lo peor .  La batería no dura tanto como el fabricante indica .  Falta simplicidad .

Motorola Motorizr Z8, una decepción

ulyses3, Ciao
2 March 2009
  • Summary: Desde que cayó en mis manos este teléfono me dió problemas ya que no me funcionaba el bluetooth, aunque conseguí arreglarlo cambiando de firmware por otro que encontré en internet (uno llamado monster pack o algo así). Después de funcionar bien durante unos meses, la batería me ha empezado a fallar apagándose o reiniciándose a menudo, y ahora ni siquiera se carga y me da un mensaje de error de que la batería no es válida.
  • Pros: El sonido y la imagen
  • Cons: La batería
