The reason why N86 8MP is underrated is because it has a great camera mixed in an outdated feature set. Nokia should've incorporated the 8MP Carl Zeiss lens on the N97 and not on a midrange phone like N86. N86 is considered only midrange today because it still doesn't exceed the feature set of a 2-year old flagship device, N95 8GB. N95 8GB during its time is in top of the ladder because it's the only one which had the features it boasted. N86 is actually not competing with Samsung INNOV8. INNOV8, just like N95 8GB and N96, is a flagship device, while N86 is a midrange handset only. INNOV8 was released almost a year ago thus becoming the first 8MP camera phone. Samsung will now be releasing an 8MP camera phone with same or even better camera tech specs than N86: 8MP lens, Xenon and LED flash units, variable aperture, mechanical shutter and optical zoom. And what's even more astonishing is the bearer of this high technological camera is not even a smartphone. So, I think that Nokia is really trailing behind the competition.

Anonymous, 20 Jun 2009I don't understand how can N86 have so poor ratings and SE W995 so good. Just compare those 2 ... moreBecause the first design impression is so boring... until you get hold of one and explore.

[Look at the first preview of N86]
Look (and compare) at the area with the unreadable yellow sign in pic 1. N86's photo is clearly more sharp and detailed than Innov8. While Innov8 makes the center of the picture beautiful (no doubts about that), it can't manage to focus on the whole image.
The same thing can be said about the flower pic (nr. 4); Innov8 made a more detailed picture in the center with better (false?) colors, but the rest of the picture was completly blurry.
Overall N86 is better, but we'll see the real winner at the full review. Hopefully we'll see another camera shootout soon...
