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


With its Motorola MotoZINE ZN5, developed with Kodak, T-Mobile finally brings a high-quality camera phone to the masses.

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.

Along with EDGE, the ZN5 uses Wi-Fi to access the Internet. It connected to our WPA2-secured network without a problem. But unfortunately, the phone doesn't support T-Mobile's Hotspot@Home plan, which allows low-cost voice calls over Wi-Fi. This seems...

Review: Motorola Motozine ZN5


[Editor's note: The ZN5 we review here was a prototype version. When Motorola sends us a fully baked model to play with, we'll update 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 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...

Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5 Review – Camera Phone with Xenon Flash – Pics

Review: Motorola ZINE ZN5


Here is Phone Scoop's full review of the ZN5, including video tour, images and plenty of opinions. Were Kodak and Motorola able to keep things in focus, or did they bungle the shot?

Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5 - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review


T-Mobile's got you covered with 2 multimedia Motorola phones: first the Moto ROKR E8 for music lovers, and now the MOTOZINE ZN5 for camera buffs. The Zine ZN5 shares the E8's modern good looks with front faces that look like they've been sliced from a...

If you're a camera buff and haven't wanted to spend $500 on an import 5 megapixel GSM camera phone, the MOTOZINE is the heart of temptation. At $99 it's a bargain given the very good camera, solid build, great looks and strong voice quality for calls....

Preview: Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5


Motorola offers its best camera phone ever with the ZN5. See why it might replace your stand-alone shooter. With video tour and hands-on photos.

It's armed with a 5-megapixel Kodak camera but is Motorola's ZN5 a great phone overall?

Motorola ZN5 mobile phone


Motorola has been pushing hard of late to try to make an impact with its mobile phones, trying to regain the glory days of the V3 Razr. Whilst the likes of Nokia, Samsung, LG and Sony Ericsson have streaked away, can Motorola's tie-in with Kodak bring...

Camera can get some good results, link to Kodak Easy Share Gallery

ModeShift offers little, poor video, convoluted menus, questionable build quality

Whilst we like some of the camera functions and the performance was better than we expected (given the right conditions) you can’t help feel that the ZN5 is still a bit half baked. For a phone that wants that "multimedia" tag suggested by the new...
