I have another small rant ive had for years on gsma is that people come on and say how much is it?? we need what country you are in ,do you want it contract/sim free/prepay..I was all to aware of in the begginning i too being in uk treated the site as being a uk site and not thinking its worldwide and i suppose people ask a question thinking this forum is only in their country...What this leads to is other people not understanding diffeent frequencys and limitations of other countrys..Just thought i would clear up some things..
The n86 is a real quality built smartfone and still due more updates to fix some bugs and add new features..Thanx Brynn
A bit off point but it saddens me sitting on the train and there all listrening to their mp3 players on their mobiles and all using ORIGINAL SUPPLIED earfones,,that goes for stand alone mp3 players as well..I often see the black n73 music edition and n86+ i-pods all using them and yet for a few quid 15 GBP they can have the senheiser cx300 and have the bass quality and every tone turbo charged into something there mp3 players deserve..Their is not much i can do besides buying them a pair but cannot let them use mine to try for hygene reasons..Every company just about (maybe not all) supply ridiculous headfones and surly for a few dollars/pence/euros/rupees they could supply a headset that would be worthy off the device their using..
This topic started cause people are moaning about sound qualioty and its subjective to whether your talking about thrun the devices built in speakers,,thru earfones supplied by company or your own headfones that are of higher quality..

But in that range of money i8910 is much more better than satio . . . !

Camera is pooor?! your the first one who is saying these words. In coparison between 8 mega pixel phones it's one of the best. And about sound speakers are weak i think tooo but in headphones that's realy Good Quality . . . !
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970You can compare both phones bye compare key under picture.
Satio is better only in design and in every feature N86 is better. In my point of view n86 is tooo much better than satio with no doubt. . . . !

I disappointed with Nokia N86 8mp.Audio Sound Quality is very poor, compare to N73,(N73 have better sound quality) camera also average performance like below 5mp,Looking Good build solid and sliding very smoothly, screen clarity also very good, Heavy, If anybody looking for multimedia this phone is no GOOD. Don’t waste your money, I am one of the Nokia fan (I very much Satisfied with my Nokia N73) I will give N 86 8mp 2points out of 5.
I lik to upgrad from my n73..i read here that the speakers of n86 is not so good as n73..then, what about it's headset? Is it good and clear? What about the display size of 86 when compared to 73? Which one is bigger? Also tell me the price of this in india..thanks in advance..
Have had some superb shots from n86 even on computer screen not just the glorious AMOLED screen on fone..It is less slippy in the hand than other fones..I can do so much with n86 its hard to keep up with podcasts,mssges been read out,games,the lot its just brilliant and zooming video recording whilst keeping the clarity is a first for digital zoom.

BAD UPDATES FOR N86
Problem with my N86 and Bluetooth handsfree after updating the firmware[ Edited ] .Options
I use n86 & jabra BT 5010. Although it works good with my old 6230, the quality of jabra was Not good when used with n86. So I updated The phone last week. Believe it or Not, the Result was terrible. Not only The problem didn't solve, but also I got some problems exactly in my phones Bluetooth. Now when I use my jabra, suddenly I lose the voice and I can't return to my phone by pushing handset button. At this time when I try to end the conversation, the phone stops functioning (becomes paralyzed) and I should disconnect the battery. I don't know what should I do

But, i... moreHi , the same is here , I mean I can open the messages immediately without waiting time , though , the N86 is a little bit slow and hangs ocasionally , but its so fast in using internet and GPS , infact , after updating the firmware from 20.115 to 21.006 , the GPS became much faster than all other devices I am familiar with . Its just that sound problem that drives me crazy , I like listening to music through the loudspeakers , and thats what I used to do in my N73 who died 2 months ago by my little son , 3 weeks ago , ive got the black indigo N86 , its a wonderful device , but I hate its speakers , I miss my baby N73 ( my son killed my baby ) .

VINOTH, 05 Mar 2010hi friends..now i am using n73me..i want to buy n86...it is better than n73 sound wise and dis... moreVINOTH : Look my freind , nothing can beat N73 in the sound issue , Its a great phone concerning that . N86 is better than N73 in many aspects , but the sound is not one of them , infact , n86 is one of the worst nokia devices regarding the loudspeakers audio quality , but using a headphone , its better than good , and dont forget the Fm transmitter in the N86 which have got more improvement than N85 and N97 .
ive been using this phone for 4 months already... Soo far everything is great. specially the camera! I no longer bring my canon powershot during outings.... the downside is the battery which can be prolonged with some settings. with heavy usage u can squeeze 1 day and half... normal usage would go upto 2... light usage would go for 3 days... I use its for wifi internet surfing, social networking etc... The speaker is loud but not clear... SE still are the best in speakers i guess... But if u use a headphone its definitely the best!!! Weight is quite heavy but feels really solid...Terxting is comfortable no issues with it. Im a heavy texter myself...I have the white one so its pretty much really classy and shiny in broad daylight.Software has few issues which will be fixed by more software updates (u know Nokia...) if u like a great camera, internet and all around phone u should buy this... Hope this helps :)
