to people who are thinking of upgrading from n82 to n86:
*GREAT value! i bought it for $AU 570 brand new. to compare, i paid $AU 500 for my n82 when it was a YEAR old.
*n86 actually looks really good in real life. feels compact and there is no real weight issue
*oled screen is beautiful
*fm transmitter is suprisingly great quality. works anywhere in my car and sounds perfect
*PROPER zoom. can zoom in 4x without losing detail
*camera takes about less than half the time to focus (did they annoy anyone else with n82??)
*variable aperture lets u take phots of scenary at night and works pretty well
*internet is twice as fast
*no xenon. as great as the camera is , xenon is missed. taking photos in low light conditions causes images to blur
CONCLUSION: the n86 is a great PHONE. in saying that it makes daily life more enjoyable (FM transmitter, more music on 16gb card, faster internet). I know ppl diss the camera because of its non-xenon but it is definately a worthy upgrade from n82. xenon would have made this phone absolutely perfect.
hope that helps everybody
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Sorry, but why u don't do a research first before posting comment in this place too? AMOLED display is an energy efficient display. Whereas TFT display of N82 uses a lot more of power than N86's display, even it's smaller, contrast-less and bright-less.

Anonymous, 01 Sep 2009Duh people, N82 is now sucks. Just compare it's camera to recent 6710 Navigator or 6720 Classi... moreN82 is a night camera phone. That is how Nokia advertised and marketed this phone. At daylight, colors seem to be unnatural. N95 takes better pictures at daylight than N82. But it is at night that the true power of N82's camera is unleashed. Don't you know that among all Nokia camera phones, N82, N95, N97 have the biggest image sensor? Their cameras are equal, same hardware. The only difference is the software that lets them adapt to how they are marketed as a camera phone. Except N82, N95 and N97, all Nokia 5MP camera phones have smaller image sensor. Again, N82 is a night camera phone. It's the only phone that can take clear pictures in pitch darkness.
Sound quality on the speakers are just right no bells and whistles, I can say so for the headphones too. Camera performance is superb on its league. This phone is slightly better to w995 when talking about being an all-rounder. On the menu navigation simplicity and appearance, screen (although oled on n86), multimedia (sounds and media navigation, camera quality aside), w995 is better. Did I mention handling, n86 is on the heavy side. I own n86 and my brother owns w995 so I have the right to compare them. I came from the sluggish n97 b4 n86,and sold the damn slow phone right away. Cheers.
