Is there anyway to find application to replace the music player which has limited features.
I have N86.
Thanks in advance.
doc, 29 Aug 2009Ive owned N82 and now i have N86 an its a lot better. It has better design, bigger display whi... morei agree i agree...especially about the speakers of n82 louder than n86. When i'm turning up the volume of n86 from 80% to 100% it seems like nothing changes imo. All the things you said i agree.
Ive owned N82 and now i have N86 an its a lot better. It has better design, bigger display which is OLED type and when I was looking at the menus of both phones simultaneously I have seen how much sharper and nicer everything looks on N86 display. It has a faster processor, stronger battery, a kickstand and a lot better video recording besides the fact that both phones record in VGA resolution at 30 fps, and that became even more obvious when I upgraded the firmware, video recording became superb, and not to mention camera and internal memory... There are only two things that are better on N82- better sound quality through stereo speakers, and xenon flash, although this double LED flash on N86 is much stronger than one might expect, so the only advantage of xenon is that it can freeze the picture, but LED flash on N86 can be used to act as a very strong video light, and you cant do that with xenon. So after all I think that N86 is really a better phone than N82, which is also a great phone, but not as great as N86.
ok.just a simple question. besids the camra of the memory of the N86. wats better? the N86 or the N82 ?
i want to buy this good phone..
but dunno about battery performance of this N86..
how long it gonna stand?

singapore, 18 Aug 2009hey people who own a N86 may I know will the handset hang or freezes? I went down to the mob... moreyes, , there's something wrong with the charging of n85 and n86. i have both units. both of them seems to be charging when connected to the usb type charger. the battery meter scrolls up as if it's charging but even if you leave it forever, , it won't stop scrolling coz it doesn't actually charge the battery. Can anyone help me out with this? I only bought a universal battery charger so i can use my phones. The internal charger and the usb type charger of these two units are not working. .

Martin Pod, 26 Aug 2009Ive had so many problems with my N97 (on 3rd handset) that I was looking in to getting an N86 ... moreIf you want to get the n86 in a contract try getting it to virginmobile i heard they have an offer for £30 600+unlitxt+unlidata, you can get the phone for free.
Hmmm, have you checked the gsmarena.co review of the W995? Says there that camera is worst than the C905 (I can't imagine) and video recording is limited to WQVGA. But if you're a fan of games and good music then the review is good...but if you're looking for an all-rounder phone...you might reconsider the N86 or the Samsung Innov8.
RE: I wonder how much is the cost for a firmware update (anyone knw?)
- IT'S FREE...if you have a wifi connection, just turn it on and look for the software update button in the tools section of the N86! =)
N86 user here for a week now. Its a very well rounded phone, fast processor, superb connectivity, nice build and a good camera/video recording. Speaking of camera, I switched from SE C905, that phone is cybersh@yt, stay away from taht phone! As a photo hobbyist, the N86 is far from beating a conventional digicam but has more vibrant and punchier pictures in its class. You might want to stay away from sodium lighting though, it turns your skin yellowish with the LED flash, makes you look like a hepatitis patient. Video recording in low light is astonishing, the LED provides sufficient lighting in this situations. So far I have not encountered any hangs or slow response. I might post again for new features I find cool and useful with the N86.
Oh, you might want to upgrade to the latest software/firmware. Some said it caused their phones to hang (I don't know why) but mine's fine, it even improved image quality and detail of the camera pictures =)
