It seems that you are familiar with ZN5. You know most of things about ZN5. From your name, It looks like you are Indian. I am also from India and residing in Bangalore. I would like to buy this phone. Could you please let me know where I will get this phone in Bangalore and the price for this phone?
I'm curious that the blur case is just a matter of autofocus?? I've met a handful of people who use phone or even digicam but don't know hot to use the shutter (half press) to focus the lens here in Indonesia
ravi, 16 Feb 2010Dear Rishi guru,
Please tell me Where can i get FR version for my zn5..
The firmware of ZN5 is uses MOTOMAGX Linux-Java(LJ) software platform. It is superior in every way to the P2K platform used before.
But due to some strategic decision, Motorola decided to abondon LJ since it did not feature 3G technology while P2K had it but lacked the rich user experience provide by LJ platform.
Android platform was chosen for the uber expensive touchscreen phones while for non-touchscreen phones the desicion to upgrade P2K platform to provide rich user experince like LJ having 3G was taken and all developments on LJ platform was stopped.
It's a shame while this decision was taken 7FR version was in its development stage and thus was annuled. It had QVGA(320x240) recording stock as well as landscape camera settings and advanced camera stats.
So the latest firmware version available for ZN5 is 0ER.The versions are
7FR > 0ER > 0DR
If any one updates the phone through Motorola software update he/she will get the last officialy relased version 0ER.
7FR may be obtained from dedicated motorola blogs like www.modmymoto.com, etc. But their are a lot of steps to install the firmware and is not as easy as software update. All the procedures for installation is provide their. But be very carefull or your phone will be bricked, and the warranty may also get void.
BEST OF LUCK!!!

whether you are a salesman?
Bcoz the reality is not fit with what you describe
a... moreFirstly, i am not a salesman. I am an engineer.
Now i find your main woe is related to the camera. You say that it takes blurry pictures. Well, blurry pictures is very uncommon for ZN5. I mean i have read dozens of editor reviews from top mobile websites & all the 104 pages of GSM arena's user opinion and i have not found a single person complaning about blurry pictures.
It may be that your set is defective, having a manufacturing fault and need to be replaced. Also do you have the latest fimrware version installed in your mobile? If not, use the software update to install the latest version. Your problem may be solved.
As for the FREE invitation to check your phone, THANKS!!! But how can i find someone named Anonymous without any address in Indonesia????????
Now, I am using this phone for over a year, have taken more than 5000 shots and printed over 500 of them and every body have praised of the photo quality and was amazed to learn that it had been taken from a mobile phone.
You say that it takes 176x144pix max. 15fps video. Thats true. Actually ZN5 competitor Nokia N82 takes 320x240@25fps which is much better. But that's not because ZN5 is incapable of 320x240 video. If you get the FR version of the firmware the phone will take 320dx240 video.
Lastly, there is no phone in the market which you can bet to be absolutely perfect. Every phone has its pros & cons. It is on the users taste and mode the of use that he/she rates his/her phone.
