this is not a true imaging device because it is not having VGA video recording.
gr8 phone. great performance. Gr8 camera quality. Beats other 5mp phones hands down. i dont know what other reviewers say but i have used nokia N82 and N95 and the quality and performance of the camera is way better than nokia phones.
blahh.. stop all ur fanboy-ism, both motorola and nokia or whatever. come on guys, diff ppl has diff preferences. just becoz the phone doesnt fit ur requirements does not make it bad. it's a big world out there and every cell is sure to appeal to soomebody. yes, it lacks 3G, but not everyone needs it (i hardly see anyone i know video call, and opera mini+edge is speedy enough in a V8. and heck, this phone has WIFI) . yes, it lacks VGA video recording (which i love in nokia phones, btw), but i still dont mind. i am still gonna buy it when it comes out...
hey nokia fans there is something other than camera in which nokia can never beat motorola it is the screen quality ,i bet screen quality is such high that n81 and n95 are way behind from ZN5, I AM WAITING FOR COMMENTS
so, i see this is kodak camera with phone fiture..coz the phone fiture is absolutely rubbish except the camera..
better bought kodak camera than this phone..
frozenfire, 26 Jun 2008yes, motorola is sooooo good...thats why their cell phone division is most likely selling out.... moreHah, fanboyish.
So, do you think that more is better? Well, I think not. Why would mobile phone companies even care making simple phones if the "fad" today is having feature rich phones? And also, do you think that an average Joe could even use all of a multimedia phone's features if he clearly doesn't know and care about them? Face the facts, some people prefer simple or specialized phones over multimedia phones.
yes, motorola is sooooo good...thats why their cell phone division is most likely selling out. the n82 beat the se k850 cause it is only a camera phone... and truely compare the pics froma n82 and a zn5. and its rumoured that the zn5 mite not even shoot in raw mode. so before you people even think to call the name of nokia and consider yourselves "equals," make more than one marketable phone- make an actual multimedia phone which can actually compare to the n70, not even the n80. NOTHING motorola has can even start to compare to the n95 1&2 or the n82 or n78. not 1. not 1. not even near the features... its not jsut about the camera, lots of fones have 5mp cameras now, se accounced a 8mp camera, but its about a multimedia phone, and motorola just doesnt have it in them. sorry. nice comback with the zn5, its is a nice phone, truly it is, and it will it will find its own niche, but definitly not any makret which is controlled by nokia or SE
Nokia Fans always give excuse. Nokia Fans always talk about the old OS. Nokia Fans are really blind about Motorola now. Hahaha... Come on, Nokia Fans don't talk other features, we talk about photo quality.
sabour86, 26 Jun 2008Beat N95 and N82? Dude, are you so misguided or plain stupid? Both Nokias have in built GPS an... moreNah, you can't just take the fact that for the first time in history, Motorola managed to defeat the "undefeatable" Nokia in terms of camera quality. The N95 and N98 came out earlier and have more features, but an average Joe couldn't get the most out of his phone because of all the snazzy and flashy features he doesn't even know nor care about.
And the OS is fixed by Motorola ages ago. MotoMagx is proven to be marginally better than even the "mighty" Symbian S60 OS.
Whatever Nokia Fans says. The fact is Motorola ZN5 beaten Nokia N82 and Nokia N95.
Moto is Moto
Really Good phone. Definitely Moto will come up with other good phones.

Both Nokias have in built GPS and lots of other features. What does the ZN5 have? Just a 5 megapixel camera and the clumsiest OS you can find in a phone. Go get yourself a good digital camera if you're so worried about photo quality. Without even 3G/3.5G this phone is useless. Plus this phone isn't even out yet. Nokia released N95 ages ago. :)
Look this link => http://forum2.mobile-review.com/showthread.php?t=76202&page=3
In that's link has comparison between Nokia N82 and Motorola ZN5. The result is Nokia N82 defeated by the Motorola ZN5 in terms of camera quality.
Whatever Nokia Fans says. The fact is Motorola ZN5 beaten Nokia N82 and Nokia N95. Don't scared of the fact that the "unbeatable" Nokia, Samsung and Sony Ericsson was actually challenged and defeated by the Motorola ZN5 in terms of camera quality. Let's face it. What for just improve w/Xenon Flash. Don't be coward.

N82 was its 2nd 5MP phone; improved w/ Xenon flash and became the best on the market
ZN5 came about two years later, and yes, some sources (e.g. mobile-review.com) say it beats the N82 but were only talking about the camera aspect; we can add battery life too.
ZN5 needs to have 3G/3.5G to be a true competitor to other high-end phones.
Looks seems to be a love-it-or-hate-it affair but my eyes see beauty in its design.
Nokia N82 - First Nokia Mobile Phone with 5 Mega Pixel Camera.
Nokia N95 - SEP 2006, Second Nokia Mobile Phone with 5 Mega Pixel Camera without improvement.
Motorola ZN5 - JUN 2008, First Motorola Kodak Mobile Phone with 5 Mega Pixel Camera with much more improvement.
