In the fast-paced world of tablets, the Motorola Zoom 2 Media Edition, despite being discontinued, still grabs attention for its aesthetic appeal and some impressive features.

Launched in December 2011, this tablet, often praised as one of the best-looking and thinnest in its time, packs a punch in design but comes with a mixed bag of performance.

Design and Display

Weighing in at 386g and measuring just 8.9mm in thickness, the Zoom 2 is a visual delight. The 8.2-inch screen, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, offers clear resolution at 800 x 1280 pixels.

The angled edges and aluminum back with a rubber touch not only enhance its visual appeal but also provide a rugged feel, making it stand out in the crowded tablet market.

Camera Capabilities

Equipped with a 1.3-megapixel front camera for video calls and a 5-megapixel rear camera with flash for HD videos, the Zoom 2 caters to the needs of users interested in multimedia experiences.

The rear camera's features include autofocus, LED flash, and face detection, contributing to a well-rounded camera setup.

Performance and Operating System

Under the hood, the tablet is powered by a TI OMAP 4430 chipset, boasting a dual-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A9 CPU and a PowerVR SGX540 GPU.

With 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage (expandable via microSDHC), the Zoom 2 handles day-to-day tasks with relative ease.

Running initially on Android 3.2 Honeycomb, it's upgradable to Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, offering users some level of customization and compatibility with the latest apps.

Software Features and Connectivity

One standout feature is the inclusion of Quick Office, allowing users to create PowerPoint, Excel, and Word documents on the go. Motocast, a file streaming app, adds another layer of functionality to the device.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band), Bluetooth 2.1, micro-USB 2.0, and HDMI support.

Drawbacks and Limitations

However, the Zoom 2 is not without its flaws. The tablet's battery life, lasting around 6 hours of talk time, may leave users wanting more, especially for extended usage.

The placement of the power and volume buttons has been a subject of criticism, leading to accidental presses and interruptions in user experience.

Final Verdict

In conclusion, the Motorola Zoom 2 Media Edition, though discontinued, remains a stylish option for those who prioritize design and multimedia features.

Its thin and lightweight build, coupled with a competent camera setup and some useful software additions, makes it an attractive choice.

However, potential buyers should be aware of its limitations, including an outdated Android version, occasional lags, and a relatively short battery life.

Despite these drawbacks, the Zoom 2 might still find its place among users who value a balance between style and substance in their tablets.
