Perhaps the battery issue is because of your FW, if you want to change it, you can come to ModMyMoto.com, and ask there
I tried lowering the brightness level into 2 a few weeks ago plus i dont use the vibrate and feedback options so save battery but still the battery drains within the day. :((

yeah i guess 30 mins of surfing can be considered as heavy usage but there are days when i only use my phone purely for sms and still i drain my batt within a day.. is that normal? i think around that i send around 100 sms..
**and a correction to my first post: regularly i send 50 sms a day and not 50 mms.
hey guys i've been using th zn5 for about 3 weeks now and i absolutely love it! the picture quality is great, i surf the web using wifi and i can't say enough about the call quality! its a really good phone! especially for its price!
But its slower than my old phone but its tolerable and i have already coped with it. And one more thing, my battery can't last an entire day with me and all i do is send around 50 mms, call for about 30 mins and surf for around 30 mins again. Is it my heavy usage or do i have a faulty battery with me?
And pls tell me if i can do anything to speed up the OS of the Zn5.
OVERALL i really like this phone and i love it! i just want to further improve this great phone. cheers!:D
Sure it's a smart phone
And it ain't slow if you mod it

I don´t know what site is this, but look: I didn´t say the quality is bad, but only that the sound is low! But maybe it´s only my phone. If I could compare my Zn5 with another Zn5, I would know if it´s only my phone or the model itself. I´ll look for someone that has it too! Thx! Bye.
but dear rahoni i read at one site than zn5 was on 10top musice phone 2008 however zn5 is camera phone
and how u say sound is low ???!!! i hear zn5 volume and was very good and loud
mark, 14 Jul 2009zn5 is slow ??!!
are you realy use zn5 for the moment or just hate moto u can compare it to a... moreI don't like or hate this or that trademark.
I think that this kind of behavior's totally wrong. There are good and bad phones from every brands.
My last phone was a V3i with a MP installed on it. It was very very fast. I just had to click and the response was there. Maybe that's why I'm thinking that ZN5 is slow. Comparing to my last moto, it is.
About the volume... I still think that it's low. See that I'm not talking about quality. They're two different things.
The slowness problem on several phones (not just this one) could be because of the size memory you put on it. Most standard phones get somehow slow with extra memory (2GB+ cards)
