I live in Croatia and this phone has very recently hit the market. I think that it arrived at stores about one week ago. I am very dissapointed because all the local dealers said that silver version wont be available for an indefinite amount of time. In regard to web browsing, i have never had problems with that, maybe because i am subscribed to T-Mobile Croatia and they have the web issue well arranged, they provide an option called Web N Walk which includes 1 GB available for surfing, download, upload, e-mail etc. and all that for a fee of 14 euro monthly. And of course, it is at HSDPA speed.
i live in indonesia and i brought this phone at 1 jully 2009, my opinions for this phone is :
1. bad for internet connection, cuz with my 2 sims card from telkomsel and indosat they lack for internet connections, and when i came into telkomsel dealer they same as me know nuthin' about why they cannot setting gprs manualy, and they seem frustrated about setting gprs on this phones, and in the end i got the soory words from their mouth cause they cannot setting my phones :<
2. the camera quality is normal, not bad and not too good, the cash is too high but 8mp camera is normal
3. is heavy wight to carry, and sometimes im affraid if my phones is drop
but for gamers like me, this phone is wonderfull, but if goes for chatting application with gprs........ :(
i hope nokia can fix this before they lunch the other of N series
josh, 30 Jul 2009ok, should be getting this phone next week, everybody says is an amazing camera and phone....hello, Josh did you recieve already your n86 8mp from UK?.how's the features and performance?.did you see any scratched on the camera lens? please reply thanks.
I just bought the phone yesterday. not even 24 hours yet.. it is a cool phone. .
I have a fine vertical white line on the display of my N86. Any idea's how to fix it? Thank you.
I see only caller number no name I have stored contacts to phone memory and using just phone memory
I have the white version and its not made in Finland I live in Finland and on the N 97 few pieces have been made here
Great phone, the numeric keypad in white is real light in color so the black will NOT be a bad option for those who dont get the white. More when I know more my phone is just 36 hours old
Yes memory details can be found in file manager
anonymous orig., 30 Jul 2009try to compare your n95 8gb to n86 8gb so that you can see the difference,,1)n86 8gb have card... moreYes I am agree with you and also it has the 28 mm wide angle lens with variable aperture which is a very new thing among smart phones
I have owned N73, N95 8 GB, N82 and at present I use N85, which, in my modest opinion, makes me an experienced user of Nokia Nseries branded phones. Must say that N82 ruled in terms of camera quality, mainly because of xenon flash. N82 and N95 8 GB also ruled in terms of audio quality produced by stereo loudspeakers, while N85 is far behind in that regard. I certainly hope that audio quality of N86 is improved over that of N85 and I saw on the pictures that loudspeaker grills on this phone look quite similar to those implemented in 5800 Xpresss music which has enormous audio quality both through loudspeakers and earphones.

I am abot 2 buy this phone because it seems amazing. At moment i use N85 which is by all means a very good fone so its direct successor must rule. am selling my n85 today and will have 2 add extra 150 euro to money which i get from selling n85 to buy this beauty! would prefer it in silver but things are as they are, at the moment only black/indigo. Somebody asked where to find info on memory status, i think it should be activated by opening file manager. And yes, phone has an eyelet 4 the lanyard, and it is placed on bottom of the fone, you have to open the back cover to reveal it, great, cuz i carry all my fones around my neck elsewhere would be losing one fone every day!
Where do I see from menu memory details and memory card details. The phone has an 8 gb memory and I have a 2 gb memory card also but I cant find where the memory details are from Menu of the phone. Can someone point me please
i've just tried this phone yesterday - there seems to be an interruption during the call - like a 'call waiting' beep? Anyone else experienced this? Its going back by the looks of it!
hyde, 31 Jul 2009hye...everybody who had owned this wonderful N86,can you comment about this phone battery perf... morethe batt for your phone is a 1050mAh the N86 comes with a 1200mAh which is more powerfull that battery also comes with the N85 which last at least 3 days before it needs to be charged again,
the N96 only has a 950mAh which lasts 2 days at a push usually only 2 day, the next the battery for the N86 is the model up from the N96 and lasts a good few days
