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?

If you're looking for a camera first and a phone second, the Motorola ZN5 is the device for you. It has one of the best cameras we've tested and managed to include a pretty decent phone and feature list, too.

Experiences with my ZINE

I bought the Zine a few days ago from T-Mobile. I have to say, this phone is fantastic. I just have a few responses to the review:

* Yes, it'd be nice if the microSD was hot-swappable, but since it can hold up to 8GB and I can transfer data without removing it, I don't think it will ever affect me.
* Screen: beautiful
* Signal: better than my last phone
* Sound: I completely disagree with the review... I have to set the volume to the lowest setting. The people talking on the other end are too loud at any other setting. As for the ringer: lowest setting is still too loud (in the office).
* Battery: OK so far, though the flash and WiFi drain it fast.
* Menu organization could use some work, though I'm getting used to it.
* MP3 sou...
The phone sucks walnuts!!! The Motorola I880 by Sprint/Nextel is the BOOOOMBB!!! The IDEN network is the man. DIRECT CONNECT IN THE HIIIZZOUSE!!!!

Motorola Phone tools

I installed the Motorola Phone Tools and Kodak Easy Share Software from the CD that came in the box fr the Zine. Easy Share installed and loaded just fine but everytime I try to install the Phone Tools it tells me my phone is not compatible and cannot find an updated version from the web. What's the issue here? Am I doing something wrong, or is this software just not compatible with the Zine right now? Anyone else hae this issue?

Hope they make a CDMA version!

I really hope that they make a CDMA version of this so that I can use it on the Alltel network! ^-^;;
Seriously Alltel has a lack of nice camera phones...
I played with this today and its very impressive. If Moto could make this for all carriers like the POS Razr it might hepl them to tread water for a few more months before going under. The cam is (I really dont want to say this)the best that I have ...
ALLTEL Lacks....Sprint is the hombre!!
