GPS is a great disappointment, don't know if it is a hardware problem or firmware... other sites as of a week ago confirmed many N86 users all over the world (after upgrading the firmware) are having slow connection and does not engage consistently, it breaks off and loses connnection, don't know how can the nagigation software going to guide the direction if the GPS connection keeps trying to establish a connection.
Anyone have any insight or updates to this major lag in the GPS feature? Other than that, it is a great phone for still photos and video images not too shabby for basic/simple movie clips whilst on vacation.
It is our first GPS phone and we long-time Nokia users and now I fear I have to re-consider my position when looking for new mobile with GPS function.
Thank you with regards, tango

Anonymous, 18 Sep 2009Things I am disappointed is the low res display for its price and bad sunlight legibility even... moreI had n85 and know about the oled screen in bright light,,goodness their is always a snag..
Whilst spending a few more hours researching today ive added n79 to my list of next fones..To be honest all things still point back to the n958gb as the benchmark for all things symbian..Whilst on my travels ive noticed the video record term D1 mentioned an if you think about it its only 80 pixels more in the landscape direction which is hardly visually mind blowing is it..I do seem stuck and only the e72 as last chance attempt at something good but e52 slaughters it really except for cam which is bad at macro but produces spectacular shots (as long as its about a meter away tho)..Strange as adding a little switch like gx30 or moto v3x would solve the close up shots prob and allow fotographing buisness cards and barcodes..
So any one else any thoughts cause i am staying with nokia and symbian and only real option is n86 but when is white going to be available and at what cost..
i have this phone for3week
its camera is excellent it take excellent photoes in night and day
sounds quality is very good
and cpu of this is excellent
speed of this is high
and battery is very strong
*n86 8mg is best phone you can soure*
Things I am disappointed is the low res display for its price and bad sunlight legibility even in max brightness. hope other things such as slow transition effects, changing to right orientation, less awkward slowdowns are solved in future updates.
Should have read gorgeous,,anyhow if you look at related videos on right hand side there more and very good reviews i might add..
Anyone wanting to drool this is link to show the white version,,hell fire its gogeous,
I am getting N86 next month,it also should have had another update then ..
question, 17 Sep 2009camera..i don't want more mp..what i want is!!.."the quality of picture"..can anyone tell me..... moreITs an unfair question because the chance of someone having these two fones in their possession is remote,,you will have to do what we all do and start reading reviews,,reports and peoples opinions..
camera..i don't want more mp..what i want is!!.."the quality of picture"..can anyone tell me..which 1 is more better..nokia n86mp or samsung jet wth 5mp..
A top smartfone thats going to get even better with future updates .Like n95 its on the way up..
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970i'll be collecting this baby from UPS on friday...feels good, the anticipation...the wait...the days seem to be going by so much slower....sad thing i bought for my GF...yeah i know...sucks!!
I did not consider this fone before because i thought it was the n85 with 8MP camera..I have been round the web looking at reviews and read gsmarena review for first time and it is a lot different..:
1) sound quality was atrocious on n85 were as n86 is near top scores in audio test..
2)The build quality of n85 is awful squeaking and groaning plastic.
3)The d-pad area and hidden keys on n85 were squeeky like pressing a bad quality old remote control but worse because the whole faceplate is one piece of pressable plastic,,i could not get on with it.
4)The colour scheme of bronze was sickly and no other colours,,mine said copper colour i think..
5)Speaker output was quiet and cranking up to full blast caused distortion.
6)Now the screen, and this will carry on with the n86 as well and that sunlight legibility is just about zero,,i often could not see who was calling so just hung up with a txt sent saying i would call them back in 10 mins..
So the n86 is a heck of a lot different to n85 so its on my next fone list under the crossed off xperia 2 ..I find the E-Series tempting as well..Just carrying on with htc touch pro for now..
