got this phone recently and love it. hate n95 8gb - lots of features but slow phone
n86 is fast with less then 2 seconds between photos
kickstand is a killer, i thought i'd never use it
so far no scratches, i think screen protector messes up the look of glass
all ovi stores updates are no worse than iphone and all apps integrated very well
improved intuitiviness and control of the phone overall make for a whole new experience then sluggish n95
will probably keep for 2 years as it seems that it doesnt scratch front or back
great job nokia

[deleted post]Oops! I'm sorry. Your name sounded Bengali...really sorry. I imagine that you are a doctor who has just completed MBBS. Pardon me if I'm wrong...usually you don't find old guys interested in gadgets. Are you preparing for PG? This phone is quite helpful for taking quick and good quality snaps...saves time and money for taking photostats. Like to hear more from you...
Since my upgrade in middle May '10, my phone went back 3 times to date!!! Main reason is that it came supplied with firmware and maps that are not compatible with life-long GPS support. Web-site downloads are not possible since the handset's product code does not allow for downloads/upgrades until it was sent to NOKIA service centre. How they managed despite the product code, I do not know. NOKIA blames the service provider and vice-versa and I, the customer, is slap-bang in the middle.
Now, even after their firmware upgrade, the latest maps were STILL unavailable and GPS connection was only possible by connection to the internet (at huge expense)and not by inegrated GPS, also with no stereo radio and VERY difficult RDS reception if at all!!!! An INTERNAL ERROR (I suppose the hanset)and talking to at least 7 advisors at NOKIA Care Centre, I was advised by the last person to send it back AGAIN. 3 times in 2 months when every time I loose about 2-3 weeks return time!
Worst handset I have had by far in my 15 years of cell phone experience.
Dr. Bidhan, 22 Jul 2010Wc brynn... Im totaly satisfied wid my n86...bt i wanna buy n8 wen it will b releasedWhere did you buy your n86 from? Kolkata? Bought it after your house surgeoncy?
I had n86 white as almost the same time with Dr. Bidhan. The color did not fade, nor it turned yellow. Its perfect as it is and what i have to keep it safe is a cloth pouch and that's it. Not a scratch, keypad and slide is in perfect condition... All is still great...

aiham120, 21 Jul 2010does this phone has a bilt in dictionary
does this phone has a air update
How many serial n... moreyes it does come with built in dictionary, over the air update. It comes with 1 ngage serial, but with latest fw ngage is removed from n86 as nokia no longer supports it.
Despite of numerous positives LIKE SUPERB BUILD QUALITY, some common negatives are: loudspeaker is tinny, some(and not all) have slider wobbling problem and some software bugs (whose correction is upon nokias grace).
Rest everything is perfect.
