Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5 review


Motorola and Kodak's first cameraphone collaboration

5 megapixel camera ; Kodak software ; Wi-Fi connectivity ; microSD card support ; Xenon flash ; Good quality music player

No 3G ; Poor design ; Large build

Looks uninspired and lacks 3G, but the Kodak endorsed 5-megapixel camera means impressive shooting abilities

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...

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

Motorola - Motozine ZN5


The Motorola Motozine ZN5 is a phone that's very much focused on its photographic capabilities. Featuring a 5-megapixel camera with Kodak Perfect Touch technology, it includes a sliding lens cover on the back of the camera ...

Motorola's Motozine ZN5 is a fairly simple and fuss-free mobile phone with a smooth, durable body and intuitive menu system. Motorola's use of a flat keypad may not be to everyone's taste and it can be difficult to operate (especially when texting) as...

Motorola ZN5 Review


That said, at least there's the addition of Wi-Fi here, so if you're in the right hotspot you can upload your images (which won't exactly be small thanks to that 5-megapixel sensor) relatively speedily. The phone has been designed with the...

The collaboration with Kodak has paid off, with excellent image quality and a minimal start-up time

The lack of 3G means you can’t send pictures quickly, unless you’re near a wireless hotspot

Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5 Review


With Motorola joining forces with Kodak for the Motorola MOTO ZINE ZN5, you do have an interesting combination due to the latter's expertise providing the back bone for the 5MP ...

As it stands the Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5 mixes in some quality features, but it could have been even better if they had ironed out some performance/design issues and added 3G support - however in fairness if you bought the ZN5 you will still get...

Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5 review


Motorola is the last of the manufacturers to launch a five-megapixel camera, the ZN5, which is a result of a collaboration with Kodak. So, was it worth the wait?…

Kodak Gallery is a great and easy way of storing all your photos and ordering prints

The inclusion of Wi-Fi doesn't make up for the lack of HSDPA or 3G

The camera experience is adequate, but there's not enough going for the MOTOZINE ZN5 to make it truly memorable.

The design looks familiar but the features don't. Can Motorola's marriage with Kodak work?

5MP camera; ModeShift and CrystalTalk technologies; Easy uploading; Wi-Fi

Not a looker design-wise; No 3G; Attracts dust/dirt; Flimsy USB cover

If picture quality and ease of uploading above all else matter to you, if you close your eyes and think of, say the iPhone, you’ll get along with this handset just fine

Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5 review


We take a look at Motorola's first real foray into the camera space to see whether the company's dalliance with Kodak has paid off

ModeShift and CrystalTalk technology ; 5-megapixel camera ; Quick uploads to the web ; WiFi

Design overkill ; No 3G ; USB cover is a tad flimsy

This could have been the E8’s younger but better brother but it ends up being a bit of a strange-looking beast with a kick-ass camera.
