Motorola ZN5


The ZN5 is the product of a joint effort from Motorola and Kodak to create a 5MP camera phone that aims to provide users with exceptional photos – or so they claim. Here's what I have to say after testing the ZN5 and putting it though its paces. Form...

Motorola TEXT for backing up your text messages and Motorola BackUp are both available for keeping your data secure, wirelessly. MOTOSYNC is an easy way to sync and back up your phone's content on your PC.

Motorola Zine ZN5 (T-Mobile)


The Motorola ZN5 is the best camera phone we've seen so far. But it doesn't stop there, as it's a good phone, too.

The Motorola ZN5 offers a fantastic camera with a wide range of options and excellent photo quality. The plentiful feature set includes stereo Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, the design is sleek and sturdy, and call quality is more than respectable

The Motorola ZN5's memory card is located behind the battery cover. The menus can be pokey at times and the camera interface could use a refinement. Also, the ZN5 lacks video editing features and the photo uploading process had a couple of hiccups

Motozine ZN5


The Motorola Motozine ZN5 is part cell phone, part digital camera. It's the brainchild of a partnership between Motorola and Kodak, boasting a 5-megapixel camera with a bevy of impressive settings and features. And at $99 (after a $100 mail-in rebate)...

Excellent camera with many features Superior battery life

Lacks 3G support Uninspired design

The Motorola Motozine ZN5 might not be the most eye-catching handset or the fastest phone around, but its impressive camera makes those small faults forgivable. And you can't beat the $100 price

Motorola Motozine ZN5 Phone Review


Excellent camera with many features ; Superior battery life

Lacks 3G support ; Uninspired design

Inexpensive phone has a high-quality camera, but speed and design are compromised.

Not all superstar partnerships turn out for the best. (See: Madonna/Guy Ritchie, Shaq/Kobe, Steve Jobs/John Scully, McCain/Palin, etc.) But Motorola, the inventor of the cell phone, and Kodak, the creator of the digital camera, can be credited with...

Outstanding 5MP camera; Wi-Fi enabled; speedy web surfing; good music player

Video recording hiccups; microSD card under battery cover; lacks dedicated music controls

it's hard to argue with the sheer level of functionality the ZN5 offers here for just a hundred bucks.

Motorola Motozine ZN5 -Review of Motorola Motozine ZN5


This 5-megapixel camera phone offers an impressive design and Wi-Fi for quick uploads, but don't expect the ZN5 to replace your point-and-shoot.

Five-megapixel camera, Can upload photos directly to Kodak Gallery, Kodak Perfect Touch technology enhances photos on the phone, Integrated Wi-Fi

No 3G, Pictures not good enough for large prints, Can't upload more than one photo at once

Pressing up on the navigation pad brings up recent calls, and if you press down you'll be prompted to add a contact to T-Mobile's myFaves, which grants unlimited calling to five people of your choice. To scroll through or edit these contacts, which...

Oh snap! There's a new cameraphone on the block — and this skinny, pixel-packin' newcomer's got Nokia and Sony Ericsson squarely in its sights. As the

Access camera mode with a flick of the lens cover. Skinny, with curves in all the right places, the ZN5 is one of the most attractive cameraphones out there. Big, beautiful 2.4-inch screen. Backlit keypad is simple and elegant. Flip the phone sideways...

Indexed zoom (4x) is clunky and makes noisy images downright deafening. Disappointing low light performance. 15 fps looks craptastic even on the ZN5’s screen. WTF! Moto's still cramming the MicroSD card behind the battery

Motorola MotoZINE ZN5


Developed by Motorola and Kodak to be an excellent still-picture camera phone and a terrific voice phone at the same time, T-Mobile's Motorola MotoZINE ZN5 succeeds admirably at its two primary goals. The first 5-megapixel camera phone offered by a...

5-megapixel camera. Excellent call quality. Full Web browser. Wi-Fi

No 3G or Wi-Fi calling. Low-quality video recording mode. Photos are noisy in low light

In sunny conditions, the first Motorola/Kodak camera phone holds its own against dedicated digital still cameras. It makes clear calls, too, so it's a solid choice for avid shutterbugs with T-Mobile service.

Motorola ZINE ZN5 Review


Now that we are firmly entrenched in the 8-megapixel era, Motorola has finally managed to release its first 5-megapixel phone, the ZINE ZN5. It comes two years later than the competition but it looks promising due to its Xenon flash, the “KODAK Imaging...

The MOTOZINE ZN5 is built to share too: you can upload your photos to the web the instant you take them, or save them to share later on up to 4GB of optional expandable memory. When you're done, with ModeShift technology, just slide across the lens cover and your 5-megapixel camera instantly transforms back to a phone.
