just got mines today and i have to say its n85 all over again, speakers are not even close to the quality of n95 but a little better than n85, build quality is extremely good over all this cannot replace the n95,, only in the camera dept. thats it i will stay with in my opinion the best phone n95 8gb...until the i8910 gets released, if you have any questions let me know
fab, 23 Jun 2009Xenon is the only type of flash that emulates the natural light so it's ideal for photography.... moreI disagree with you on that point,
they are both good flashes (3rd generation led and the xenon flash) the led flash on the nokia n86 is 60% brighter than standed leds,
witch brings it into par with the nokia n82 xenon flash.............

N86 User!, 26 Jun 2009My phone is on its way by UPS, from Nokia Direct... i'll get it today. OOOO YESSSS!!! Hooah!... morecongrats for having your new n86 8gb...just don't 4get to share us the performance of your new n86 8gb and how much its cost..thanks a lot in advance.
Nokia really showed to the Public they could release Top Class mobiles with the N95 an N95 8gb,but since the release of these two mobiles,they have shown no image to the public that they are still the Best,the N96 might have looked o.k but did not attract many people to buy it,the N85 with a very wobbly slide just after a weeks,an now with my ewperience with the N86 they have turned me down alot,an just shows they are more bothered about producing mid-range mobiles with the 6300 an others,i think this year uptil now Samsung are showing Nokia that the are the Best top class mobile,i bet somethings got to be done at Nokia to change there strategy
My phone is on its way by UPS, from Nokia Direct... i'll get it today.
i am so !?'@~#\ excited!
Anonymous, 26 Jun 2009image quality sucks, innov8 give a better picturethe review at allaboutsymbian dot com convince me to buy this phone instead of N97. the images taken were amazing c", even the review here in GSMArena shows amazing images from N86, from a photo enthusiasts point of view..
a year + late and full of bragadorious specs wit no delivery.sorry nokia.
After this phone was released, all comments turned to negative. What happened to those wide angle lenses and variable apertures that were being bragged before... an overstatement to this phone that did not perform as expected.
Finally had enough with the N86,i was awaiting a Top Class mobile from Nokia but to me,the Quality is Below Par as my N95 8gb is Still the Best Nokia mobile Produced,so will now wait until a much better mobile will be released by Nokia,i had 3 N86s in 5 Days an All gone Faulty so not getting no upgrade on a mobile thats Useless to Use

I was a fan of this phone before the review, but the image quality sucks... Plus, no car charger and video connectivity cable? Thanks Nokia, but I'll wait for your next 8 or 12 MP phone...
fab, 25 Jun 2009Based on the camera test conducted by GSMArena, it seems that Samsung INNOV8 gives better imag... moreLook at the final "real" test (the bottom picture). That pic shows how good the optics are in reality. Everything else can be fixed by firmware updates, which will make it possible for N86 to surpass Innov8, since N86's only weakness is software, not the optics, which ARE superior to the one found in Innov8.
