Judging by the image samples of the N86 prototypes...it seems to have a good camera...in fact the quality of its image may will beat lot other 8MP camera phones in market. I've used or at least get my hands on every nokia carl zeiss optic camera phone...& as you all know these cameras take a hell lo of time to process images. they are really slow camera's...even about the functionality they don't work properly in all the options offered by the camera...my bro from nokia showd me some images captured by N86 in sports mood and they are ridiculously noisy like the ones captured with N85,N79's sports mood...nokia couldnt better it even this time...(let's see if they does it in the retail version)...not that it abuses the whole camera...its still gonna be a great one but not just perfect...even the samsung camera's shoot awesome images in sports, and most other moods...
what nokia disappointed me most with(Im quite a nokia fan)is the video recording...where sansung,LG etc. have come up with HD/D1...QVGA@120fps...slow-mo and time lapse video....nokia is still cringing with the ancient VGA@30fps....
and people please don't compare IDOU with N86 now...IDOU is not even relesed and the camera samples out are from the prototypes...the camera module is still under heavy promotion and developments...so let's wait to see what SE brings out finally and then we can talk about it....
one may say that even the N86 samples are from prototypes and still its better than IDOU's....mind you the censor of N86 was made ready by carl zeiss before ages..so let's just wait b4 giving opinion about anything...this is no wall post for blabberings...we are here to talk sensible...
un, 06 May 2009zahid get real samsung is betterCarlo trust me, this phone is good. i have never been wrong in my choices. trust me :)
?>, 06 May 2009still cant beat Sony ericsson c905
!!!!!already ur C905 is beaten by N82.
i have done checks and i admit now, i am retarded and Stupid, and i am very sorry guys for putting n86 down again.
Nokia N86 8MP Rules!
Mobilemaster, 06 May 2009The Idou is much better than this phone, choose the Idou!!! Sony Ericsson has great camera pho... moreoh and it is obvious that you attack this phone because you are scared for your precious idou. and you should be.
and hahahaha TWO 12 MP cameras??? please, i think that is the stupidest idea i have ever heard for a phone. thanks, this will keep me amused all day.
i can just see it now: people queuing up to buy a phone because with it they can take not one, but TWO high res pictures AT THE SAME TIME! wow, i mean i've always been frustrated with my phone since it can only take one at a time. god this will be a revolution. SE will take over the market, wait no - take over the WORLD!!! maybe even the UNIVERSE!! everyone will bow to SE for their genius TWO 12MP PHONE! maybe SE can be our new god, and this genius phone his representative on earth.
but seriously, what a stupid idea. when SE do something truly innovative, like nokia, i will take note. until then, stop trying to make out that they are better than they really are.
Mobilemaster, 06 May 2009The Idou is much better than this phone, choose the Idou!!! Sony Ericsson has great camera pho... moreseriously is that a joke? not only will this phone be out long before idou, but there is NO way idou's camera will match this.
i would list all the reasons why the n86 camera is better than idou's, but no doubt the language would be too complex for you to understand. so just use google to find samples of each. idou has the worst samples i've ever seen - grainy, bad colours etc. whereas n86 samples are truly brilliant.
i am not biased towards nokia, but i can appreciate a good thing when i see it.
This phone is hella ugly!!!!!! what is nokia thinking of? They should bring back the guy who designed the E71 and have him design the N series.
it's a piece of rubbish samsunge250lilac is better a has a better camera
first of all, c905 is a lousy camera phone, can't se fans see it?? evidence : c905 grab the LAST PLACE at 8MP review by gsmarena
a 12MP cameraphone with FIXED APERTURE, better go to buy a digital camera which included variable aperture and 28mm wide-angled lens, even though the lens quality and the image sensor also better than that junk
Sonyerricson phones’ are the most ugliest phones of the world. Poor display quality (262k), poor battery, poor user interface (not symbian), poor camera (k800, c905 and now IDOU great joke of the year), small screen, bad sound quality, no third party application support, and some mad and fool fan. But nokia is good in all respect. Good display(16m color and now oled), good battery (eg. Nokia E71), Good user interface (symbian), best camera (N73, N95, N82 and now N86), bigger screen, third party application support and standard and intelligent fans.
Carlo, 06 May 2009what is AMOLED? and variable apperture? thanks in advanceAMOLED is the best screen in mobile phones, is BETTER than TFT! Japan has some phones with OLED screen, Sony invented it!
The Idou is much better than this phone, choose the Idou!!! Sony Ericsson has great camera phones right now unnanounced, has a Kokura codenamed 12 Megapixel phone, HAS TWO 12 MP camera phone!!! The C905 is also a good camera phone!
seems lyk a nice fone bt theres always a catch with the
NSERIES fones any one who recommends it.
