I use to use an N95, I generaly carry 2 phones, my personal phone was the N95, i managed to keep it for almost 2years before I felt I needed an upgrade, this is amazing for me, I was so happy when NZ finally got the N86, it's a great phone and I do feel like i upgraded, I like Nokia's little adjustments, like the Kick stand.
Only thing I wish was that there were more App's, therefore i wouldnt need an iphone
Black Bird, 02 Jan 2010yup, it has. it is a dual slider phone like N95 and N85.Sorry friend, but I was asking about the separate multimedia key, which was present in the n85 near the d-pad. Is that multimedia key is present in some other place in n86 ?

Nokia N86, 01 Jan 2010The phone has some good features but also some quality issues. I have had the phone 3 months ... moreit's also my problem in my phone (n86) dust keep entering inside the screen which is very bad to see specially under direct sunlight..some0ne here said i have to bring the phone to n0kia care for cleaning.i d0nt kn0w how much it cost. really very bad sealing.
Anonymous, 02 Jan 2010@ blackbird How did u set the colour tone to vivid?open camera. then options. then select 'customise toolbar'. select addshortcuts. then click all. then in d camera toolbar click colour tone. n select vivid. dats it.
I paid 240 euros for a brand new N86. Best non-touchscreen device on the market. I love it!
Here in Romania you can get contract-free with 295 euros. Looking forward for the next firmware... (on 6303 they reached v.1o,1o)
Hi all.what is your idea about its colour? is white better than black?? is it unscratching realy(about all surfaces)??
is its cammera best among other phones??? 8MP???
and ,is its format of cammera MP4 ???
wow man, day shots turned out to be amazing. it went upto 3.2 MB.
my cost around 450 US DOLLAR. satisfied with features and performance bt unsatisfied with build quality. i hate the shaky slider.
OK guys, lets try somthin nice, every body pastes the price he bought his N86 (new or used) and say wether satisfied or not and mention any pros pr cons.Well i got my self a one....
I`ll start with me:
360 us dollars(new-unlocked)- Satisfied.
8mp with software update even gets better, an allround high-end symbian phone.
To anyone who says the nokia N86 audio quality on this phone is terrible, is widely mistaken, to get the best out of the music player set all the bars of the graphic equalizers to full, also in audio settings have bass booster an stereo widening set to on, also use a quality pair of headphones, earphones or earplugs, not the ones supplied with the phone as the are useless,im using the earplugs i got with my sony ericsson w980 as they are very good, an wala you will have an a amazing mp3 player with awesome sound quality, in my eyes the N86 renders all standalone mp3 players not required.
The phone has some good features but also some quality issues. I have had the phone 3 months after trading up from a nokia N95.
Build quality is not great. 3 weeks into ownership dust starting appearing under the screen, likely entering through the ear piece or openings in the phone. The phone seller advised that this was because I kept the phone in my pocket. Has continued to get worse. The screen is useless in any sunlight regardless of the dust issue. In normal light dust in the screen is only noticeable when the phone is sleeping / not active. For such a high end phone this is very disappointing.
E-mail set up is good with the phone determining your account settings, although it does not function properly for 2nd e-mail addresses, you can send and receive e-mail but the additional e-mail account it cant be displayed on the home screen.
The camera is quite good but is still not as a good as a compact digita camera especially at night. While the lens cover is good it does store dirt and eventually makes marks on the lens no matter how carefully you are but I guess its better than no cover at all.
Functionally a big improvement over the Nokia N95 which I had two off but the dust inside the screen so early on is unacceptable. After having so many high end Nokia's (as well as trying the iphone and Imates) I may have to give Samsung a try.
