Camera is very gd in broad day light but at night it's not clear at all. Sometimes it just freezes and doesnt even restart, u have to take out the battery.It's already starting to lag even though i barely have anythg on it and it's 2 months old. Battery length is pretty good and recharges quickly.

My concern with n86 is not that the LEDs are not bright enough, that is OK. My concern is that the pictures turn out greenish. I check out the flash shots on digitalversus.com and the xenon flash gives better colour. Maybe this can be fixed in the next firmware?
Sanni, 03 Sep 2009Have you seen any DSLR with phone capability? Then why you compare DSLR with N86?I have seen this phone against a nikon camera and to my surprise the results are not that different.... I will try to post it on here so you guys can check it out for youselves!!!
n's, 03 Sep 2009AMOLED display is an energy efficient display.?? what ur proof? hv u been on the moon 4 the past one year???

n86 = good in low light shots and dayshots
n82 = good in macro shots and pitch black night shots
so there you have it..for you to decide which one to buy.

xyz, 31 Aug 2009Man,
Are you mad or something. You guys are comparing 5mpix with 8mpix.....Any one can say...... moresorry to diapoint you, but that is not true!!!!! its the varible apreture that wins in camera performents, not mega pexels, pegapexles on matter when you blow up the image.......
thats why the nokia n86 is brighter in low light shots not because of the pixels but because of the varible apreture.....
to people who are thinking of upgrading from n82 to n86:
*GREAT value! i bought it for $AU 570 brand new. to compare, i paid $AU 500 for my n82 when it was a YEAR old.
*n86 actually looks really good in real life. feels compact and there is no real weight issue
*oled screen is beautiful
*fm transmitter is suprisingly great quality. works anywhere in my car and sounds perfect
*PROPER zoom. can zoom in 4x without losing detail
*camera takes about less than half the time to focus (did they annoy anyone else with n82??)
*variable aperture lets u take phots of scenary at night and works pretty well
*internet is twice as fast
*no xenon. as great as the camera is , xenon is missed. taking photos in low light conditions causes images to blur
CONCLUSION: the n86 is a great PHONE. in saying that it makes daily life more enjoyable (FM transmitter, more music on 16gb card, faster internet). I know ppl diss the camera because of its non-xenon but it is definately a worthy upgrade from n82. xenon would have made this phone absolutely perfect.
hope that helps everybody
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Sorry, but why u don't do a research first before posting comment in this place too? AMOLED display is an energy efficient display. Whereas TFT display of N82 uses a lot more of power than N86's display, even it's smaller, contrast-less and bright-less.
