POPI, 13 Sep 2008I thank the person below. Its funny how people can bash a phone or a compay on an online site ... moreYou obviously are very interested in compact digital cameras equipped to make phone calls over GSM networks. Have you ever thought about frequenting to digital camera forums instead of mobile PHONE sites?????
@nmEX: Numbers speak for themselves. Five years ago there were numerous people bowing to the grandeur of Siemens mobile phones. Time proved that their choices were so utterly in the wrong direction that they led not only Siemens to oblivion but also their heir...poor Korean Benq-Siemens.
I have owned many Moto phones in my life and I have praised them for many of their "praisable" features. Now they are producing NOTHING worthwile and they are going downhill day after day. If they manage to survive financially because of sales to China or India, I don't give them any techological merit!
I an not a real big fan of Nokia, especially when it comes to their choice of materials (where Samsung is an undeniable leader), but I praise them for their marketing choices and they certainly deserve to be very PROUD of their forty percent share worldwide. On the other hand, in my opinion, Moto should be ashamed of introducing an extremely mediocre digital camera (the name Kodak says it all) "attached" to an even more mediocre digital cellular phone for the year 2008 standards.
By the way; nmEX, I have to admit that the usage of the word "disgusting" was indeed rather inappropriate!
I thank the person below. Its funny how people can bash a phone or a compay on an online site that has no basis. If you "love" your brand then you must repect others. Just think what would happen if there were only two mobile phone makers in the world.... Youd get an overpriced nothing. No compition = no advances in thechnology nothing. Hats off to Motorola with this phone. It has the best camera I've ever seen on the market. I can say that because I've seen it, used it, and uploaded pics from it. It has replaced my Sony digital camera. I did not buy it for its looks, its not the best looking phone, but I bought it for its technology. I dont want 3G, nor a smartphone. This phone is perfectly priced for me and gives me the features that I want. 5mp camera with autofocus, xeon flash, simple UI, and Wifi.
For me this phone has it all, if it not for you then dont write anything about it. Saying stupid once sentance remarks makes you look just as stupid as your comment.
And rememnber people, this is and always will be a place where people ask questions and give comments on the phone that are interested about. So ultimatly your stupid one liners are not valueable to people considering the phone. More pros and cons vs. the death of a compay.
@nmEX from Anomymous, 13 Sep 2008Do you realize that they are introducing the ZN5 as an top of the line, non-smartphone model? ... moreIt is no doubt that from your questions posted, you are a knowledgeable person in terms of phone. Some of your questions made sense, unfortunately not everyone will agree with you, similar to a normal car owner questioning about car designs & engine features that are not good enough for him without knowing the actual product manufacturing design requirements, tooling cost, marketing debates, market demand and so on. So it's better to leave that to their in-house operations & development. If they fail, let them fail and you can talk about it the whole life time after they shut down. If they survive & comes up top, that's their capability. Based on the current situation (not 1 year ago) and other reports, Motorola seems to be moving towards the right direction, unfortunately there's another major brand that has suffered.
For phone features selection, let the people select what they want, some wanted 3G, some not (like me), some wanted Wifi,(get a PDA phone) some not, some wanted Symbian, some Linux, some no preference - it's all individual and let's respect that. I bought an E8 knowing that I can buy an SE W910i with about the same price and to some SE has slightly more features but not for me. That's my choice and for me the E8 is a better phone - so please respect people's choice. So my question is, what are you trying to achieve with all these questions? Please help the other readers to understand. Thank you.
Do you realize that they are introducing the ZN5 as an top of the line, non-smartphone model? Do you think that Nokia or SE would EVER dream of intoducing an NON-3G phone at this price range? Does it occur to you that, due to their comlpete lack of competence, they are trying to save themselves from bankruptcy by introducing a model designed IN China, FOR China, because China has not introduced 3G yet? Have you noticed that it took them two years to introduce the ROKR E8 which NO carrier really promoted and hardly anyone bought it due to its weirdness and lack of modern characteristics (camera, lack of 3G, and lack of memory slot being some of them). Can you see Nokia engineers and designers laughing their hearts out at what the narrow-minded are introducing at almost the beginning if the year 2009? Do you know what Nokia offers at the price of the ZN5?
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2008if u have the question i have the answer for u Hats off to you friend, your contributions on the Motorola reviews (not only ZN5) were commendable. The number of reviews posted were astonishing too. I guessed your comments contributed to my E8's purchase recently. (lots of them, before I realised that they were actually from the same person)
I'm not being sarcastic and I know your contributions were with good intentions. Good work and have a good day. Cheers.
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2008Disgusting, tecnhologically backwards phone!Hellooooo!! In the year 2008 people need HSDPA pho... moreI respect your PERSONAL preference on mobile phones' features because everyone has their rights to choose or say out their own opinion.
the choice of words used are important because it reflects an individual's character. Personally, I don't think any mobile phones for that matter are "disgusting". Be it Nokia, Sony Ericcson, LG, Samsung, Motorola, etc... even the lowest entry level phone. Based on your opinion, you have then concluded that all brands stated above are disgusting and all the manufacturers like Sony Ericsson, Nokia, LG, Samsung, Motorola "will DEFINITELY go BANKRUPT!!!" because all of them have handphone range that do not have "HSDPA phones with ultra-fast internet speeds and video-calling!".
So if you want to post this kind of comment, you should do it in every other brands' comment site, this is to be fair and you are entitle to your opinion & comment. Since you are doing it in only ZN5's comment site, then I would wonder what's your motive of doing so.
Be professional, do it the right way in the right manner, I'm sure others will respect your opinion and welcome you in this site for more. Hope you'll understand.
Disgusting, tecnhologically backwards phone!Hellooooo!! In the year 2008 people need HSDPA phones with ultra-fast internet speeds and video-calling! The losers from Illinois will DEFINITELY go BANKRUPT!!!
