Black Bird, 17 Jan 2010wow man, ur battery really last long. mine last just for about 1 day with 1 hr calling, sms, s... moreBasically as mentioned I only use GSM network as GPRS or 3G network really suck your battery life. It's fine for me as I dont make any 3G call or surf internet without wifi. Turn off Bluetooth, make sure no running apps in the background as you know this is a smartphone so you have to Exit the application yourself, reduce screen brightness. For me the screen brightness is always adjusteg in the middle of the bar. Not forgetting not to over charge your battery. Once lights off unplug. If all else fails try bringing your battery back to Nokia to check if under warranty. Hope this helps.
Subhendu., 17 Jan 2010can you please let me know is Nokia N86 battery last for 3 days, because i am having the phone... moreMaybe you should install V21. For me here's my settings. I use GSM only as I use Wifi more for internet not GPRS and I seldom do video calls, turn off bluetooth when not needed and I do not overcharged the battery. Once the charging lights go off I unplug it. For my usage surfing internet about 1 hour everyday, listen to radio about 1 hour as well when I go for my morning run, average 30 sms, 20 to 30 phone calls as I'm in sales, 6 to 7 pictures using camera. I used to have the Samsung Innov8 and worry about battery issues but I'm glad that I've changed to the N86.
@ "Black bird"
Your Battery Lasts 1 Day? huh? why don't you go S***k your "Xenon sacred Phone"?
@ Those who really can't admit that their N82 is no more the best Nokia Camera phone..I'm really sorry.
Nokia have really let the N86 down putting such weak speakers on it,as they placed the speakers like there Touch Screen mobiles on one side,i had the 5800 an these speakers were spot on but the N86 ones are way to low an no stereo output,i have gone back to the N95 8gb because of the speakers an screen on this class mobile,Hope this year we do get a 12 mega-pixel camera mobile from Nokia as they are losing ground now with the others,an hope they do not do with the N86 use one of there old mobiles an just update it like the N86 was a N85 upgrade an totally wrong idea by Nokia
can plz ne1 tell me which is better n85 or n86...which is worth of buying..i need ur help
