I own and my wife buy recently Nokia N86 8meg, but we found both of them very weak in receiving and sending sounds comparing to Sony-Eriksson (p990i) or Nokia N70. Thus, I recommended that any one buy his model as a cell phone but it can be bought as a small camera!
Im using Nokia N86 8MP (version 20.115) for more than 2 months now. I am a Nokia user and I have not used any other phones other than nokia for the past 6 years. & im a heavy user (Install different softwares I use PC suit, OVI remote wat ever is available)I read thru pages and pages of comments & reviews.. okay.. now this is what i have to say.. Hope Nokia is going thru the comments since GSM arena is a major site... NOKIA N86 8MP is not worth the money its sold for. I have personally advised some of my friends not to buy it now since it needs a serious upgrade in the next firm ware & Hardware.A lot was expected but There were a lot of disappointments on this Phone.
1. Camera is good in good lighting conditions & for portrait pics.
2. nokia Wave Secure is a good option. Works well.
3.Battery is okay
4.Browsing is fine.
1. Key pad gets scratched while sliding
2 Camera lense gets scratches due to sliding lense cover.
3. Images have a lot of noise in less lighting conditions
4.N-gage games are not worth. Nokia should allease provide one or 2 free full version games.
5.Pencil in missing (copy paste & marking galary files are not eazy any more)
5.If the music player is stopped & minimised(not exited) and after a call or if the slider is opened & closed it turns on automatically.
6. Male voice option is not available for voice commands.
7.For the fat size it is they could have increased the speaker sound more.
8. Theme DYI is not needed software on N86. instead a free antivirus software could have been a good deal.
9. OVI (PC Suit) is not User Friendly. Lot of junk asking you to sign in into 1000 different things and it was really pissing me off.
Overall A highFI Junk. Could have been more refined.
i kept all my media files, applications in da mass memory bt da problem is dat my phone memory shows me dat i have only 24mb free space! dont knw hw i can recover it.Would anyone help me solve this will b ever grateful:)
Basilica, 16 Dec 2009What is third party softwareare you seriouse you dont know what that is????? it just means it not from nokia them selves like the ovi store!!!
Nokia_Tec, 18 Dec 2009N82 is too old to be compared to N86! N82 hangs like hell, i had n82 n couple of apps and i ca... morethis is true the nokia n86 was discontinued because well is wasnt selling to anyone, I dont blame them it is really ungle phone....

FIRMWARE VERSION 20.115 for n86 8MP
some people have mentioned that this new firmware its a crap.. well i only have to say that this release improved my phone.. i believe that some versions differ from country's, cuz i upgrade mine from portugal and my phone don't crash or restart, and don't decreased my photo quality like some people mentioned.
Improves (original version to v20.115):
-Face detection feature (photo pictures)
-the original version, when phone restarts, dont illuminate the keys (very bad when u need to put ur cardkey or your security key at night), this version correct it.
-ovi theme added
-music player screensaver added
i think that's all..
i recommend to upgrade the firmware version to all portuguese people, about other contrys, i dont know the versions, if good or bad, you have to try it.
