Motorola MOTORIZR Z8 review


A twist on the slider adds a kick to a stunning handset

3G HSDPA mobile broadband ; Supplied high quality stereo Bluetooth headset and movie on memory card ; Full web browsing

Camera lacks autofocus ; Detail of design is matter of taste ; No typewriter-style keyboard

Let's face it: there's more to a phone than just features and performance, and the Z8 has individuality in spades

Motorola MotoRIZR Z8 mobile phone - First Look


The next generation of mobile phones is all about music isn't it? Wrong, that was last years message and perhaps realising that they've missed the boat against the likes of Sony Ericsson's Walkman range and the yet to be launched iPhone, Motorola's...

Screen quality, design, interface, headphones, movie in the box

Is that screen going to be big enough?

So first impressions are good. Our only concern is that the screen isn't big enough to get the most out of video, however it's probably why Motorola can claim the decent battery life.

Motorola MOTORIZR Z8


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

The screen is something else Motorola is keen to shout about. It measures 2.2 inches corner to corner and displays 240 x 320 pixels and 16 million colours. This isn’t exactly ground-breaking. But it also displays video at 30 frames a second.

Motorola Z8 Review


This is the second model in the Z range that we have come across, the first being the Z3 that we reviewed a few months back. And like its smaller ...

The Motorla Z8 is a nice smartphone and thanks to its Symbian UIQ 3.1 platform makes it a solid performer. It's only let down by its functionality and price tag.

3G HSDPA ; Improved user interface ; Unique banana shape works well

2 Megapixel camera is lagging behind the competition

Consumer review by: cweih77 (



I got this phone as a gift, a Ferrari version Z8 phone. I must say this is the lousiest phone I have ever owned. The sliding with cause electrical shock to the phone and resulted phone shut off by itself. I'm very frustrated about it.

The design of the phone, your friend will be amazed with it.

Everything except the look.
