Nicolae, 20 Jan 2010Have it for 1 month. Previous phone (still using) K800i. I was looking for a all in 1 solution... moreI believe you're talking CRAP. I'm sorry but you are. How can this phone lose out to K800i when it's won the TIPA award for Best Mobile Imaging Device 2009. Even with the like of Innov8 and SE in the running. I've used the K800i and let me tell you it's the worst SE phone I've used. I had had to go back to the Service centre to repair my phone every 2 months. Ridiculous isn't it. You must have really gotten a LEMON. Grow up and dont be childish.
Have it for 1 month. Previous phone (still using) K800i. I was looking for a all in 1 solution with a good camera. Sounded too good to miss on paper, but a total disappointment in reality:
-Poor visibility in sunshine;
-Too heavy and slippery- have dropped it several times. Probably won't last long.
-8Mp camera is a joke. The quality of photos is so poor, especially indoors, that I'd rather use the K800i, which at least reduces 'red eye' effect.
-Poor battery life coupled with uninformative battery indicator- it just switches off all of a sudden after dropping by one line. Lasts 2 days max with only average usage (K800i after serving for 2 years lasts about the same, but used to be 5-6 days when new).
-Buggy s/w (partly resolved with the v21.
-Slider not top quality (wobbly).
-Doesn't work with my HP Bluetooth headset.
-Stupid context/menu keys.
-Poor sound quality/reception. I can hardly hear anybody (K800i sooooooo much better)
-Both speakers on one side- can barely hear it in my pocket in some situations.
-Crappy headphones and TV cable not included.
-Stupid USB charger, considering that u have to recharge daily.
-Just about any application on it requires a data connection and an enormous amount of data.
-Texting is difficult.
-Sorting media files is so difficult.
There are also good points:
-Good quality of display.
-8 MP plus I inserted 8Mp. A lot of space for crappy pictures! I downloaded a few maps and almost emptied the available space on disk E.
-GPS with compass- seems to be working fine.
Well, if K800i were updated today with a 8MP camera, at least 4Gb of internal memory and GPS, I would consider N86 TOTALLY useless. A slightly better display is not worth all the extra problems u get with it.
if the n82 is such a good camera phone than tell me WHY it is dicontinued EH EH?????
after reading all the comments i decided to buy this one. i have it last monday. Its nice if its your first time to buy n series. Boring phone. Seems i got an old n series.
josh, 20 Jan 2010all I could do was crack up laughing at what you guys are saying that the 6700 is a better cam... morei was not saying 6700 is a better camera than n86. i was just saying some of the photos clicked at night with 6700 r of same size with n86. that it guys.
Fact is u all should stop bickering about something as volatile as the subject of best phone in any which way..Fact: There is NO (read) NO! best phone from the Iphone to the nexus to the else,only better ones.you have revolutionary or evolutionary phones, the N86 is evolutionary i.e. builds on the N82 and therefore improves on it because come rain come shine the hardware it packs has a much greater ability to adapt via imaging logarithms than that on the N82 which will fall into the legacy segment i.e. older hardware(N82) results in the hardware maxing out its capabilities where newer/improved hardware(N86) pushes beyond.So please if u have your wits about u, don't buy older hardware unless u absolutely have no choice, the span life of devices of that sort are short plus u quickly bore of it and its 'advanced features of its prehistoric time ' so could we talk about this phone and REAL user opinions/problems/hints etc
Nokia_Tec, 19 Jan 2010Guys am i sitting in a bar or something? Cause i have seen answers from guys that seem damn dr... moreall I could do was crack up laughing at what you guys are saying that the 6700 is a better camera "get reall" and the n82 is better.... dont make me laugh!
im a n86 user
mobile good for taking videos , playing videos and taking snaps.
not good for music
loudspeaker volume is very low
just ok in earphones.
WMA file as mentioned in specification dont support(u can hear sound without video)
sometimes videos those recorded get stuck for seconds while playing in the phone.
But nice clarity
over all .....OK.....hmmmmmm..nice ....not bad..
How about someone post 2 pictures showing the same thing, but one is taken with N82 and the other with N86 and have a comparison.
@ people comparing n82 n n86.................... Plz people go and post your coment on n82's page. Mayb u guys spent lot of money on buyin n82, as it was costly when launched first. I know u guys loved ur n82 n proud of it. But after years, wen a better camera phone N86 is launched, then u guys are feeling jealous, its natural. n82 can't beat n86. we n86 owners believe that n we'll believe till death. guys it time u realise. rub your tears and please go and post in n82's page. its time 4 u people 2 accept the truth. n86 is the winner. those who r saying no, U HAVE LOST UR MIND.
jj, 20 Jan 2010haha..nice one Nokia_Tec..^_^ these people who are against n86 are just jealous maybe becau... more@ nokia tech..............................,haha... u guys think i'm jealous. why wud i be?? i myself own N86. Hahaha.....n you know wat? you guys should read the review of 6700 classic. its one of the best 5 megapixel camera phone. why don't u just read it here itself in gsmarena?. image processing takes major part in pic quality. u guys know nothing about camera. Tell me, samsung innov 8 doesn't have carlzeiss optics, it doesn't have wide angle lens, it doesn't have variable aperture, it's flash is less powerful than N86. THEN HOW COME IT'S PICTURE QUALITY IS BETTER THAN N86??? HUH? TEL ME? now don't say i'm wrong. in every website its writen samsung innov 8 better than n86. please brother, i'm requesting u to see the comparision between n86 n innov 8 in gsmarena. give it a look. u guys are not aware of 6700 classic, its d new 1. it won the best 5 megapixel midrange phone of the month in the mobile world magazine.
I think what Nokia has been doing all this time is they don't wanna take all their smartphones to battle. They reserve each function to every smartphone. Like for example: N86 is meant for photographing distant landscape sceneries since its variable aperture and wide-angle lens will be most helpful here. N82 is meant for closeup and night shots especially like if you're at the bar or at the party, or just want to take a portrait photo of somebody within a meter or two.
jj, 20 Jan 2010haha..nice one Nokia_Tec..^_^ these people who are against n86 are just jealous maybe becau... morein theory, n86 is the best camera phone today because it's got the high technical camera specs.but actually, there are 2 samsung phones that have higher camera specs than n86 already.but in image quality,n86 brings great improvements but not to in all conditions.no matter how good its optics is,it can't and won't still beat n82 in close-up and night shots.n86 is meant for landscape photography which most camera phone users don't use often.most people want to take pictures of their friends and families and that requires closeup and freezing shots which n82 specializes on, rather than take a picture of a scenery which n86 is best in. the variable aperture can't provide enough illumination as a xenon flash does.nokia made a mistake on n86 that they will soon gon' address on the n87 - the true n82 successor!
Nokia_Tec, 19 Jan 2010Guys am i sitting in a bar or something? Cause i have seen answers from guys that seem damn dr... morehaha..nice one Nokia_Tec..^_^
these people who are against n86 are just jealous maybe because they can't afford to buy one (for those who are saying that n82 and 6700 are better) or maybe because they can't accept the fact that what they have bought is a complete piece of junk compared to the n86 (for those who are claiming that the cameraphones of SE and samsung are better)..
get real guys!!haha..:)
n86- the best camera phone in the market today..^_^
Guys am i sitting in a bar or something? Cause i have seen answers from guys that seem damn drunk!
LOL... 6700 takes pictures better than N86, and N82 is invincible, so why dont i throw my n86 and go for non-smart phone, a pixon 12 or the perfect satio....lol
Mr expert: N70 produces sharper images than N86
and N82 has won 2009 TIPA awards.
downtown clown: Trade your N86 for sony erection or samsung that actually builds refrigerators and washing machines.
Anonymous, 19 Jan 2010so like u said there is no more new firmware update for n86 after v21??most probably they will release may be v30. but as i wrote in d previous post, its just gonna be a minör, maybe just to stabilise the bugs in the phone. dats it. i'm writing dis coz of my experience with nokia.
This is the ultimate N82-N86 camera comparison. The Xenon flash just can't be beaten by a dual LED flash no matter how good it is. And it isn't a win-win situation for N86 either. For most of the photos, N82 produces clearer image results. N82 is still on par with today's camera standards even if it's almost 3 years old already. N82's REAL successor hasn't arrived yet!
