Before I bought this phone I did my fair share of researches and I was down to Nokia N86 & SE W995. The price of both mobile phone is almost identical (about S$30 difference)
I just got this phone for 4 hrs... And i can already concluded that this is one of the best nokia phone i have ever used.
The slider is smooth and without any wobbly or shaky feeling. Material used seem to be of better quality than any nokia phones i used. I guess a considerable amount of effort (and money) have gone into the type of material used and the design of it.
SMS is easy and fast The User interface may not be something new but i like it the way it is.
The pics taken is sharp and i must highlight that the color renditing is very accurate (FYI im studying colors). However the camera button is abit difficult to press.
Sound on headphone is awesome almost as good as my ipod touch (2nd gen) But the speaker is not as good. Any volume above 70% is not very clear.
So far i have not encounter any problems yet. (cross my finger) I hope I have none =)
Did anybody try the FM Transmitter?
Does it allow many frequencies?
Does it produce a good sound?
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2009Is loud but music quality sucks hm............it is loud in comparison to what your iphone, if you compare the speakers to n95 you cant even here the music over the n95 thats how good the n95 is n86 sucks maybe half the volume of n95 and that might be pushing it
i exchanged my N85 for N86 today cam is good as good as N85 only larger resolution.
Slider is awesome much better build quality than my old N85.Speakers are good,Vibration much more smoother than N85.Kepad is very comfortable,Sunlight legibility is better than N85
Music is the same as N85 But with better IN-EAR EARPHONE HS-83(with three different ear buds).Menu icons and Power saver screens are really good.
There is a charging indicator(White Light).not many settings in the cam like My SAMSUNG PIXON.
have 15 trial n-gage games can activate Any one.Got a n-series Pouch inside the box.Very nice addition.No tv out cable in the box but my retailer allwed me to keep the N85 tv out cable :)
No scrolling sensor,m Missing that :(
TOTAL COST IN INDIAN RUPEES IS RS 24,000
THAT IS 363 EURO OR $500(USD)
i have to warn potential buyers the speakers on this phone are crap, so if your into music playability of your speakers do not get it

AG, 03 Jul 2009my phone is on its way....will be gettin it within next 2 days... yippeeee!! cant wait.... ... moreits not that it is a trash phone its just that people who are used to nokia are comparing them to older models like n95 which in my opinion is a WAY better buy for your money, and a more superior phone ALL AROUND, not just comparing cameras
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2009hows the slider? any movement?slider and movement is superb it feels a lot like n85 but more solid, i like a lot better than the older style sliders
For the record, W995 camera is RUBBISH !!! It is a Walkman phone and NOT a Cybershot. Please do not be mislead until you try out the phone yourself.
I had W995 for 2 days and sold it away, The N86 is a much better phone, full stop.
I like both Sony Ericsson and Nokia, however Sony Ericsson had been VERY DISAPPOINTING recently.
The N86 definitely makes very good photo, better than N82.
Please check out both phones physically before making unreliable comments based on specs and what you read. See the real thing for yourself.
my phone is on its way....will be gettin it within next 2 days...
will post my reviews by nxt 4 days...
i m pretty darn sure this phone is not as bad as the comments here suggest..
s for the praises of w995 in comparison 2 n86 8mp....y doesnt one chech out gsm arena's official review bout w995??
things will get sorted out then..
its really quite tough to believe that a phone like nokia n86 would be dat bit of a trash s d people here seem 2 suggest seeing the price at which it comes..
nokia people r not off their heads 2 release a phone in d N series line which 'sucks'...they love their brand as much s fans love their phones...
i guess some people r just jealous dey cant own this phone...
I dont know why all users are saying the camera of nokia n86 sucks
I mean WTF i u dont like the camera then blame urself for buying it not the manufacturer or dont use a cameraphone buy a separate standalone camera
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2009There are a lot of plus points for W995, 3G for one which has a max speed of 7.2mbps while thi... moreYou are right, choose the W995, or choose the Sony Ericsson Satio, the only one 12MP smartphone!!!
