An innovative clamshell design and superb mobile TV playback make this touchscreen phone stand out, but heavy texters should look elsewhere.

In multimedia and call quality the In multimedia and call quality the $149 Motorola Krave ZN4 doesn’t disappoint. The clamshell design is pretty compelling, but we were let down by the awkward on-screen keyboard and the inability to access more...

Motorola has entered the touchscreen market (read: iPhone clone wars) with its Krave ZN4, available from Verizon. The handset's primary contribution to the cell phone technology war is its “touch cover,” a clear flip-up front protective screen that is...

Loud and clear sound quality; bright 2.8-inch touch screen; good MP3 player

Restrictive keyboard; OS does not work well with touch screen; poor video playback

Even with music playback that lasts nearly 16 hours, the Krave is still a disappointment.

Motorola Krave ZN4 (Verizon Wireless)

 

Exactly one year after we reviewed the intriguing Motorola Ming, Moto finally has brought a variant of the phone to the United States. The new Motorola Krave ZN4 for Verizon Wireless offers the same basic design that resembles a Star Trek communicator,...

The Motorola Krave ZN4 has an eye-catching and unique design with an innovative and responsive touch interface. It offers a bevy of high-end features and rates favorably in call, photo, and streaming video quality

The Motorola Krave ZN4's browser and QWERTY keyboard take acclimation, and camera editing features were few. The Krave lacks Wi-Fi, and full exchange support is not available at launch

The Motorola Krave ZN4 accomplishes something few other cell phones do: it's unique, easy to use, and it performs well.

A descendant of the Ming, a Moto phone that was wildly popular in Asia, the Krave is a rounded 4.6-ounce slab (4.1 by 2 by 0.8 inches, HWD) with what appears to be a clear, protective flip cover over the screen. But that "clear" cover is actually...

Beautiful design with high-resolution touch screen and "floating" earpiece. Epic battery life. Features Verizon's V Cast Mobile TV

Other than the mobile TV, the software is a big yawn. Easy to start TV accidentally when the phone's flip is closed. Inflexible camera

Verizon's Motorola Krave ZN4 is a gorgeous little TV phone that looks like a Star Trek communicator. But with more exciting software, it could be so much more.

US admirers of the Motorola Ming device never got their chance to get up close and personal with the phone due to lack of interest from US carriers and only a few importers offered it in the US. The Motorola Krave ZN4 is as close as we can get to the...

The phone has good RF and great audio for music playback. The screen is protected and the phone feels more rugged compared to other large screen touch screen phones. Great video playback quality and GPS has good performance

Battery life could be better. Some application control schemes and user interface could use some improvement, like the built-in browser ; Price: $179.99 with 2-year contract after discount

The Motorola Krave ZN4 came out of left field and managed to impress us with its strong multimedia features and good GPS performance. The phone has excellent audio, a nice music player with album art support and great mobile TV performance. It doesn't...

Motorola Krave ZN4 Review

 

Released earlier this fall, Motorola's Krave ZN4 from Verizon Wireless joins a strong crowd of competitors in the U.S. touch screen phone market. Unlike the Apple iPhone or the latest BlackBerry Storm, the Krave is no smartphone, but it offers features...

The Krave's best feature by far is its multimedia capabilities. As a portable TV and music player, this handset's excellent sound and picture quality make a perfect pairing with Verizon's revamped mobile media services
