I am Alixer from India. I have read so much about N86 and found that it is nice phone. However, camera is just ok. My pictures are not going beyond that 1.5 or 1.6 MB. I asked some about firmware. What is this and How can I download and upload in my fone? Can anyone help me?
josh, 04 Jan 2010oh I get you, you mean how you hold the camera phone:)yes that n how do you contrl ur exposure settings... Light angles and exposures are key to gud photography! Exposures in simple words mean the control to da ammount of light entering the the lense n da ammount of time for which the sensor is xposed to light! Da simple rule is da more the xposure the more light and for longer period! Da less it is da less da light for shorter period!
So play wid ur cam settingz n keep on xploring!
Light is the key! It can make an average cam look gr8! N an excellent cam look bad!!!
josh, 04 Jan 2010and how do you ajust the camera angle???its a very tough question to xplain. i mean to say when u r outdoors in a sunny day, then the lens of N86 are not dat gud at atjusting the light. i mean to say we should hold the phone in such a way that maximum light enters and the lens is not reflected by the sun rays. the lens of N86 are subject to lens flare.

Carl, 03 Jan 2010if ur fone is still on warranty, u dont need to pay for the cleaning of the screen...that's my problem Carl my phone (n86) doesn't have warranty..i bought it last Aug. O2, 2009 in north africa without warranty. and now i'm in the philippines.
josh, 03 Jan 2010what did you do???? did you take out some of the compression???? can you give me the link???hi. i havn't done anything to the compression.. n i have not uploaded any of my photos yet.. try taking sum close up photos. i have just set some manual settings like set the colour tone to vivid. n adjusted the camera angle so dat it doesn't suffer lens flare..like already wrote by sum1 in this page, with right camera angle n settings N86 can work wonders.

Nokia N86, 01 Jan 2010The phone has some good features but also some quality issues. I have had the phone 3 months ... moreno matter what phone you get it wil still get dust under the screen on a building site,
