guys, i got a problem with my n86, a few weeks ago the video light just stopped working, the flash is working in camera mode though. i've tried everything i could, formatting the phone, installing new firmware... but it still doesnt work, can anyone help...
The battery charge is not lasting. Most days I have to re-charge it at least twice a day. It feels hot at some times. Would you please let me inform the remideis. Is there any possiblity of taking back this unit and replace me with another set that not having this problem.

Seriously speaking the ... moreHi Ben, N86 camera is superior, specially in day-time and at night without flash, but can't compete to zenon flash. One thing, i appreciate is its audio quality via earphone(i use sony earphone), more bass and clear sound even better than my sony mp3 player. Screen visibility in direct sunlight is very poor. Lower line buttons (*, 0, #) get scratched within a month when sliding due to its manufacturing design defect, but can be avioded by sliding with its top-side screen. Dust gets into under-screen due to its manufacturing design defect. Phonebook is good when searching by any part of a name. I prefer its stylish look and heavy weight. Battery lasts 2 days for me on average use. I give 9/10 marks.
Hello guys i just wanna know how is the performance of the mobile...
Seriously speaking the specs of this phone suits my demand to the excess!!! But unfortunately i heard lots of drawbacks. Now since you are users of this phone tell me about its performance after using it for more than 6 months?
Your reply will be highly valued!!!

Now the thing is i am a button fan and hate touchscreens..I have had plenty of touchscreens but ended up back with buttons.I find it difficult doing most things with touch never mind gaming.I cannot really comment but did try tetris on touchscreen and its just not good for me.However you may be fine with onscreen touch buttons.So i dont feel qualified to comment on touchscreen gaming.
The new Sony Ericsson play is on its way tho which might be a super option for you.Its full android and good graphics chip and all the gaming controls.

One more question, N8, C7, C6-01 don't have hardware keyboard and E7 has it but don't have Autofocus (nor C7, C6-01). Now, I want to know that the onscreen controls are good enought to play games on N8? or for E7 can I take good close ups or images of text with it's EDoF camera? Please suggest me which one would be good, N8 or E7? Anyways, THANK YOU very much for your help.. You really helped very much.
Also the c7,c6-01 or E7 are also in same power league as n8 their is no real difference.What i mean is if your not bothered about 12MP camera the others are just as good.

You would be much better off with N8 for gaming but still the best gaming fone is fruit fone.I hated saying that word cause i hate fruit fone.
I've had this phone for 18 months now. I haven't had a single problem with it till date.

Just wanted to know, is there any big effect of not having GPU on gaming. That is, will I be able to play 3D games smoothly? I like racing games very much. I don't think, there is any S60v3 game that requires integrated GPU. But still, can you tell me, what's the difference of playing a Racing 3D game on N86 and N8 (as N8 have GPU)? Anyways, thanks for that info.

But I want to know that, is N8... moreAll proccessors have a basic 2d/3d gpu but its what they call integrated GPU.The type your on about is dedicated gpu or graphics chip which n86 does not have but i can tel you something.Nokias n82 had 2 proccessors with dedicated graphics chip as such.One proccessor did all the radio stuff ie bluetooth, 3g,gps.The second proccessor dealt with the o/s.The gpu or whatever you wish to call it did help with gaming if the programme called on the gpu to assisst ,,it also helped support th tv uot and helped keep the VGA 30 FPS OUTPUT.
