You are like a sheep; what one says(MOTO'S DEAD IS IMMINENT!!! RUN AWAY FROM THIS brand!!!) everyone repeats
Should I also say SE death is imminent? because they have 0 profit this quarter?
Just because moto is losing shares doesn't mean they will die
WTF, every company has bad and good periods!!!!
Yes 1 phone can't save moto, but better late than never
kevibeni, 13 Aug 2008Mr. Ignorant I never said I disliked Motorola, I'm just telling you like it is. Everybody know... moreMotorola's strong points, are design,(which plays a huge role in the decision of many people who buy phones), & their unmatched build quality.
Every one of Moto's mid-top tier phones is made out of glass & metal. They keep the cheap plastic to minimum.
Unlike Nokia & SE who somehow manage to make a phone entirely out of cheap plastic & make it still weigh over 125 grams. The N95 was so creaky & full of gaps, it was a nightmare. The slider sucked big time. Open & close a Z6, & you'll see how proper build quality is done.
You are also ignorant when you & everybody else believe Moto is dead. They still remain the 3rd top mobile manufacturer in the world.
They were #3 in terms of sales in '07, & are still #3 in sales in '08...what do they need a "comeback" for?...they lost no ground....stop regurgitating what you read in the blogs, & news.
You also think Linux is boring? HA!!...you don't know what you are talking about. It is the most modifiable of any phones UI. I guess having an open source OS for a mobile is boring, despite the fact you can customize the phone any way you like.
Moto also has the fastest processors of any mobile manufacturer. The Z6 has a 628MHZ processor in it. There is no lag at all, unlike S60 or SE's OS.
To put in plainly...you really have not the slightest idea what you are talking about.
but seriously I have a digetal cam with only 4mega pix. and to have it make callsw play music to..I'd pay but Im a T-mobile emp.... discount baby..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Mr. Ignorant I never said I disliked Motorola, I'm just telling you like it is. Everybody knows that Motorola's death seems imminent, and their efforts to make a comeback have proved futile so far. Every phone company has their strong point, SE's is battery life, Nokia's is features, what's Motorola's, the frickin' looks of the phones? Anyway that's just my opinion. Point is, the majority of Motorola's phones are outdated spec-wise, not to mention the boring interface, and what outstanding features are there, not like SE with SenseMe, or Nokia with their great multimedia capabilities.
heeheh 8megapixel cameras doesnt always mean better than 5megapixel ones....
people saying that megapixel makes better pictures are either just too dumb to understand or cant understand because they are dumb
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Dumb dumb has Motorola been producing proper phones to be reviewed? Why waste time reviewing super outdated, super budget phones? However, the ZN5 just may be reviewed.
Hmm, not bad...but this alone won't save Motorola from dying a good death ;)
Yes, for Chinese Version doesn't have Wifi enabled, doesn't FM radio and doesn't RAW Image support. But already has built in WiFi and FM Radio. Just need flashing again the other firmware so WiFi enable, FM Radio enable and RAW Image support.
Is same like Motorola M1000 and Motorola A1000. Before Motorola M1000 doesn't support WiFi but after flashing with firmware Motorola A1000 so now has WiFi.
Chinese version has
- no Wifi enabled
- no FM radio enabled
- no RAW Image support
The last point should be the same for all other versions, RAW support cancelled.
No use if you have 8 Mega Pixel Camera Phone but doesn't have great camera software, doesn't have great camera hardware and doesn't have great camera lens.
Is really possible 5 Mega Pixel Camera Phone can beat 8 Mega Pixel Camera Phone because have great camera software, great camera hardware and great camera lens.
No one can guarantee 8 Mega Pixel Camera Phone always win compare 5 Mega Pixel Camera Phone.
CYBER, 10 Aug 2008Where did you order your phone? . Can I have the address. You are a Motorola Die - Hard I bought from my friend in Beijing (China). I don't know the address of the shop. He said Motorola ZN5 has great quality; when see live in the shop.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2008this is without a doubt the ugliest phone ever!
not only is it ugly, its now outdated, i mean... moreyou're forgetting that most other phones use sh!tty image sensors/software. It doesn't matter how many megapixels a sh!tty sensor can output, since the image still ends up looking like cr@p.
ZN5 on the other hand, uses a decent sensor/software (nikon hardware, kodak software), though the images speak for themselves:
this is without a doubt the ugliest phone ever!
not only is it ugly, its now outdated, i mean come on, people are releasing 8mp and moto only releasing a 5mp!
get with the time moto!
For god-sakes IT HAS WIFI! Stop saying it doesn't!
That, in my opinion, makes up for the lack of 3G; who agrees?
Anonymous, 08 Aug 2008For me, nevermind Motorola ZN5 have price USD 600. I already bought and now wait until next we... moreWhere did you order your phone? . Can I have the address. You are a Motorola Die - Hard
For me, nevermind Motorola ZN5 have price USD 600. I already bought and now wait until next week in my hand. Hehehe...
