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.
i have planned to buy N86 and I wanna know abt it ! Ok,u have explained abt itz CAMERA ! But wat abt "SOUND QUALITY" ??????... Plz xplain abt it too and compare itz sound quality wid other phones !
hi everyone had my n86 for a week love it but when i charge the phone when its is off it only shows 2 bars of battery but when i charge it on it shows all the bars when its is fully charged aprt from that the fone is the best ive had thanks
i want to know that whether nokia N86 or Sony erricson W995 is better, both have 8mp camera, whose camera has a better quality and which of these phones gives a better sound in headphones? please tell me which of these 2 phones will be a better choice overall as in performance too?
Duh people, N82 is now sucks. Just compare it's camera to recent 6710 Navigator or 6720 Classic. You will know that 6710 and 6720 produces more detailed images. Even gsmarena say 6710 and 6720 has the best amount of resolved details for 5 MPix cam. It's becoz they have a matured noise reduction algorithm whereas in the N82 they eradicates all fine details. Just because a phone own a xenon flash, that doesn't mean it's a good camphone for all conditions. Good night picture, maybe. But, maybe washed out picture in daylight, i.e C905.

josh, 30 Aug 2009ooooohhhhhhhhh am sick to death of people complaing that this does not have xenon flash!!!!! ... morei know about photography as well.. coz i studying it at university, and now i work at discovery channel as camera man. when daylight isn't issue for camera. coz all camera can record a inch of detail without problem when daylite.. the issue is when lowlite condition, how come led flash can handle it? have u ever seen a stand alone camera use LED as flash? coz n86 used 8mp lens.. if it used 3.2mp or 2mp xenon flash is not issue. and n86 is a 1st phone from nokia
N82 is the best bar phone i had so far.
n97 2x heavier camera sucks and slow.
n82 a gps is fater than n97 n95 8g.
my friend is planning to buy the new n86 .
i duno how true is the battery life.. but if i use gps jst an hour my battery half gone adi is it normal??
Anonymous, 30 Aug 2009u cant campare a garbage phone like n82 with the king (NOkia n86)of all mobile phones sad to say, if n86 was released at least a year ago, it would've been king even if for just a couple of months. with so many touchscreen phones already released like omnia hd, iphone 3gs, n97 and the recently announced n900, n86 has NO chance of inheriting the crown that once was owned by n95 8gb. N82 is nokia's ultimate 5 megapixel camera phone. Even new nokia 5mp camera phones are still no match for the 2 year old n82. but i don't think that same can be said to n86 also. I'm sure nokia is currently cooking an 8mp touchscreen phone with a xenon flash. Because Nokia knows that n86 is not complete. They just introduced the new 8mp sensor on this model.
