so i upgraded to v20 yesterday and what i can say from my 12 hour experience (went out clubbin) is -nice-,though keep away from night mode while taking videos,doesn help in any way,unless u like hazed visuals,auto mode handles night/club scenes much better.I dunno,but they really fiddled and messed theme effects with this update,i jus put it off coz u sumhow think the phone is jus about to crash,they seeerrriiiioooouuussslllyyyy need to fix this...and asap.all in all,cool update,phone is noticeably faster,havn really used face recgntn yet,i partly did,but what difference does it make to me as a non-photo editor if a face has jus a hint more focus than the rest.al put it off,probbly jus use it as a gimmick to wow! sum1
sup, 02 Oct 2009can i use the nokia updater to update the latest firmware of n86? the OTA update is much more faster than Nokia software updater. But maybe its not yet available with the nokia software updater cuz sum nokia sites says theres still no update on the n86.
brynn, 02 Oct 2009Which volume are you referring to,,the speaker loudness or loudness in the headfones??? I woul... moreyup sorry to say that but yes the volume is low its high quality right but the volume is low in both external and hdfons
well, i've had the nokia for about a day now, and i do love it, all the features, the wifi works great, the camera is amazing imo, but, one thing i have to say is a real let down...is it already has a scratch on the "scratch-resistant" screen. the only pocket this thing has gone into (and im not kidding) was my soft bathrobe......granted the scratch isnt that visible but it is a almost the length of the screen, and since i know its there, it bugs me, but that i have to say is very disappointing, hopefully i can find some spare parts or soemthing to replace the "scratch-resistant" screen
aside that though, it is a great phone
Ive had most of n series and the n95/n95 8gb were tops.I am now adding n86 too as its a superb smartfone.
Sea-Breeze, 01 Oct 2009everything is great and as expected in a high end fone except one thing the music volume is... moreWhich volume are you referring to,,the speaker loudness or loudness in the headfones??? I would like you to clear this up please..The n86 has a very high audio quality and it would be a shame if this was spoilt by low power output to the headfones..Thanx Brynn...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Well, it's really up to u. N86 has a Carl Zeiss branded lens with variable apperture while Innov8 is not. Innov8 produces shoot with a very high amount of details, while N86 produces shoot with a very pleasing color to eyes, high contrasted and nicely saturated image. N86 also produce better low light shoot too. It's up to u to choose between details or color reproduction. For screen, do u want Innov8's 2.8" TFT or N86's 2.6" AMOLED? TFT is superior in sunlight legibility, AMOLED is superior in the terms of color & contrast. Choose which one is suit u the most. For design, it's about personal taste. N86 white suit me well.
the firmware update is available in the phils by doing it OTA (Over The Air).. i already updated mine last night and it just took less than 5 minutes to download (the firmware was 5.2MB) and less than 15 minutes for the phone to update..
and yes, the music folder icon was changed to a normal folder.. i don't know if nokia overlooked this issue.. >_<
also, i noticed that the phone becomes sluggish if you have theme effects enabled.. but it becomes quite a speedster if it's disabled.. too bad i have to turn it off now..
face detection is cool, and also, allowing you to go closer on the focused subject in close-up mode is appreciated..
overall, the firmware update is a must.. i love my n86 even more now.. :)
crap phone realy i bought it for 25k and on a scratch card contest avalible at the stor i got a mp3 player i licked it more than the phone. the camera is all a shit i don think it is 8mp becouse the camera of my 5800 express music was better than this .i will go to that store ang return the phone as the shopkeeper knows i have used it only 2 days and on the call he accepted to give me a new 5800 in the return of this crap the shopkeeper is so nice. that he is also givin a shinser headset whit 5800 he told me that he will personly use the crap for me
i just updated my nokia n86 via OTA but the music icon in the main menu was changed into a nirmal folder.....
anyone expriencng this problem?
tnx. in advance
n86 has to be one of the best handsets ive used, even the battery lasts a couple of days, the camera is quality as is the mp3 player, the build is good and is compact, the only gripe i have with it is my handset wont accept an mp4 file maybe this new update will fix that
firmware v20 is a bullshit right now. Just 5 minutes before I wrote this comment, I check nokia-asia and nokia europe online. And its obvious that Nokia it self declare that : The latest software is version 11.043
Conclusion : no face detection up until now guys. be real
What about back plastic cover N86. How does it beahave when I open many times it to change sd card or replace battery. I saw it in shop that this plastic cover is very weak and very easy broken.
Sea-Breeze, 01 Oct 2009latest firmware is V20 got Face-detection feature :D yes the LED are very very powerfull and... moreyou're joking right ? from version 11, jumping to version 20 all the way ? i'll upgrade it right away ASAP if you're right

It's great to hear about the image quality of the digital zoom while taking video. I would like you to test the following for photos. Set the camera to 2MP or 3MP. Then take a photo with about 2 times zoom and let us know if the picture quality is good in the zoomed picture. (You could also try without reducing the resolution and using the full 8MP, but I am almost certain that the digital zoom will not have good quality....)
Please try and let us know.
