i would need a phone that can handle a little roughness and which still has got good features... could this be what i'm looking for??
check this link for the lens scratch (requires a bit of reading) http://forum2.mobile-review.com/showthread.php?p=807160
overall my day photos were not affected, but ALL my night photos (when using flash) became a bit washed out. The flash gets badly reflected through the scratch
foneadik, 24 Jul 2009its true what the guy below me said.. Nokia needs to revise the hardware as it scratches the l... moredid the scratches affected the photo quality when taking pictures? If not im still going buy it.
its true what the guy below me said.. Nokia needs to revise the hardware as it scratches the lens :( mine had scratch only 3days of using it and I am VERY VERY careful on all my phones.
to all owners of n86, has anyone of you noticed some scratches on the lens caused by sliding the lens cover?
Beware, ALL N86 and N97 Nokia phones have faulty camera shutter. Dust particles get trapped between the lens and the camera cover. When you slide it, the lens gets scratched and it affects pictures. Just google "N86 lens scratch" or "N97 lens scratch".. Very big hardware fault and Nokia has to fix it. DO NOT BUY do your research first!
until this moment i belived that the best phone i had in all my life which including everything i need specially the camera (vedio) which give you a vivd pictures is only the N86, really its a smart moblie.
mido, 24 Jul 2009i m confused which is better n86 or n96???????????hi dude buy n86 it is superior model..
hi guys nokia n86 is one of the best camera and multimedia phones. it is really excellent models none of the phone can compare this phone .. example models like w995, s8300, c905, s8800 this r noyhing in front of features and camera better go to nokia n86.. nokia rocks ..
mido, 24 Jul 2009i m confused which is better n86 or n96???????????Get the N86. I had the Nokia N96 and the battery is poor so avoid it. I had to charge it daily or at the most 1 and half days. That aside, the N96 is great phone with tremendous features. The N86 will have a better battery (charging once every 3/4 days). Batteries mean a lot to me after this experience. I gave my N96 to my brother for free. I updated the N96 software and the battery works a bit better for him. The Nokia N95 8 GIG version is better than the N96. I currently have the Nokia 5800 and will trade it in for the Nokia N86 within the next few days. My Nokia 5800 is tremendous but I crave buttons especially as a massive mobile gamer.
To all you cheeky monkeys complaining about the camara, it is not a stand alone camara. If you want this, go and buy a digital camara. This is a mobile phone for goodness sake - all be it a tremendous one. I have a digital camara which is 7MP and that is good enough for me. I am not a photographer. A 3MP camara is fine for standard photos. I have a Nokia 5800 and will trade it in for the this one probably on monday. By the end of next week, I can give you my indepth opinion.
