Motorola RIZR Z8 review: Slide and bend

 

With the RIZR Z8 Motorola is creatively revisiting the realms of Symbian UIQ. Except for Wi-Fi, the handset offers full data connectivity, perfect display and high-capacity memory card support - all packed in a sexy black slider. A high-end multimedia...

A high-end multimedia device, the RIZR Z8 offers a few unique features: it's a UIQ 3.1 and yet a non-touchscreen handset, plus the kick-slide form factor is a true show-off. Almost all is staked on multimedia with this phone, so much so that the...

Motorola RIZR Z8 Review

 

Motorola RIZR Z8 has been quietly launched by the US-based company in September 2007, just after it was showcased at 3GSM Congress in Barcelona in February. Initially named Motorola RIZER Z8 or MOTORIZR Z8, the device has been thrown on the mobile...

Motorola made a good choice when decided to refurbish the 'banana phone' form factor. By adding some of its own innovations, Motorola made Z8 look very original, thus improving its desirability. I would also enlist here the excellent display and...

Unfortunately, Z8 has more negatives than positives. The most important downside of the slider is the fact that even if it has been designed to feature a touch-screen, Motorola decided to drop it in the end, but 'forgot' to modify the OS and...

Motorola RIZR Z8 Review

 

The decent stroke and adequate response hardly make up for the almost zero touch orientation. The keys are flush with surface and even you feel your way to them, it's hard to guess which one is which. Below this three-key layout is the microSD card...

However, in our view the Z8 has been spoiled by predictable styling and poor launch marketing.

Motorola aims to impress with this well featured slider mobile offering a distinctive angled-when-open design.

Motorola RIZR Z8 review

 

With the RAZR looking old and crusty, Motorola has given us a new icon to salivate over. But is the multimedia Z8 good enough to inherit the mantle?

Moto has fashioned its best handset since the RAZR. An average camera aside, the Z8 is a skilled and hugely stylish multimedia smartie.

Motorola RIZR Z8 Preview

 

Motorola's face-hugging slider matches HSPDA web speeds with Symbian smartness. And it's no slouch in the style stakes either

Premium design. Supports HSDPA web surfing. Supports microSDHC cards

Slightly disappointing 2MP camera. No Wi-Fi

Motorola RIZR Z8

 

The Motorola RIZR Z8, an impressive 3G smartphone, also goes by the name of the MOTORISER Z8. Motorola have targeted the business user and user who love multimedia with this handset. The super slim mobile comes with a 2 megapixel camera, video calling,...

Motorola RIZR Z8 review -

 

The stand-out features of the Z8 have to be its quality video playback, slick KiKR-slider and the more user-friendly and customisable Symbian-based UI

For a phone of the Z8's ranking, the two-megapixel camera is miserable. Why not 3.2, Motorola
