Motorola ZINE ZN5 Review
We were very happy with the call quality; and the voices at both ends are loud and clear. Only the monotony and the light sharpness were somewhat annoying. In terms of the loudspeaker, we think that its performance is above the average.
The official battery times are 9.56 hours of talks or 579 in standby mode. WOW!
Motorola enters the cameraphone market late, but better late than never and it did not disappoint us. The ZINE ZN5 has a modern design, it’s suitable for listening to music and has a very fast camera, which takes very good pictures if the sun is shining. Unfortunately, the story changes on cloudy days and indoors and the Xenon is only useful if taking a picture of an object at 7 feet at the most.
It also performs well as a phone, considering the good sound quality and the long battery life, but the lack of 3G support is a serious drawback. Alternative models are the cheaper Samsung G600, with a similar picture quality, but VGA videos. If you really want a good 5-megapixel model, we recommend Nokia’s N82 smartphone, which won our 5-megapixel cameraphone comparison.

Yeah I know but what's the difference, you'll still get the one you want so it doesn't matter right?
now the camera rating went down from an 8.5 to a 7....and the overall rating went down to a 7.5 :(
ugh...t-moblie got the phone...love that they have their own 3g bandwidth different then the rest of the world...heck for that matter why doesnt at&t use the same one as the rest of the world does...does it just make too much sense to????
Just for reference, its pronounced "zeen" like magazine. Not "z-eye-n"
I've always wondered how these Motorola names are pronounced.... you know, RAZR, KRZR, ...
i've always wondered why hotdogs are sold in packs of 10 and hotdog buns are sold in packs of 8 ;)

the packaging looks sick. i hope it stays the same when t-mobile gets it. this is a great phone. it deserved at least and average of 8.
thats what the average originally was....but then again the review didnt cover the panaramic picture capabilities of the phone like mobile-review did....who really praised this non smart phone and said the camera was better then the n82 and the audio quality is very very good.....seems kinda like a rushed review on this site.
