Can somebody check sea-breezes sweeping statements. Nokia did not have the best resolution for small screens. Three years ago Sharp had the 904 which has a VGA screen. It makes a big difference when one is perusing tables, graphs and charts. A VGA 2.4 inch screen is far better than a QVGA one. Furthermore the resolution of the screen will now fit the res of video recording ie VGA;30fps.
Those in the industry will have to check your claim that all 8 and 12MP phones still use 2MP sensors.
Samsung Omnia HD is reported to record high definition video; 720p;24fps. In theory, the result should be alot sharper than VGA video. This is not a slow motion feature. Video will show at correct life-like speeds. Nevertheless the Samsung is capable of playing slow motion.
Everyone should double check Sea Breezes claims to ascertain whether there is a breeze on the sea or in fact a sea on the breeze!
ya u r right i think nokia should stop making phones.otherwise SONY is going to kick it out in short time
i want nokia to bring a 12 mega pixel monster and show sony what going on i am a nokia fan all the way but this n 86 is so ugly no good looks at all and no xenon flash and how powerful is the new daul led flash how does it match up agaist the xenon flash if it does it would be a good option cause you will be still able to record video at night using the led flash and still be able to take good photos at night but this phone is ugly put the features in a better looking design nokia

I never had an interest in buying that phone. And thankfully, N86 doesn't have an overhyped xenon flash as N82 does. Because for dumb people, the xenon flash matters more than the camera itself! Lol!
Sea-Breeze, 23 Feb 2009Hi all.. Lets stop the arguing and talk facts.. the price is HIGH ..yes Display r... moreSea-Breeze I fully agree with you. You know how things goes and you are tottaly true. Greetings!
This phone as nothing special for me to change my black N82 with xenon for this ugly design phone! It has 2.6 inch screen, but i would like touchscreen, 3 inches at least, with better video recording specs! So i will not waste 550USD to buy this phone, but save money for something NEW WITH INNOVATION: Samsung Omnia HD!!!
I am a person that has commented rarely on GSMARENA, but till the price was announced I was a strong supporter of this mobile. I have no idea what are NOKIA's plans but whatever these are, they really need a better product, and with XENON flash this time if they are to impress people, especially their LOYAL fans.
Lets stop the arguing and talk facts..
the price is HIGH ..yes
Display resolution is perfect for its size 2.6" higher resolution is useless unless the screen size more than 3"
Remember all the N80 announced from 4 years ago got the resolution other companies makin now !! so nokia got the tech. before others but useless to increase display resolution in small sized screens ..thats very obvious and we all agree i think ...
Other spec. are fine wifi gps music ...
Talkin about music yes Sonyericsson makes better speakers higher and louder and clearer but nokia's sound through the headfones are much way better thats the truth dont argue please !!
NOW the Great Concern .. the Camera ..
Now as all photographers knows that Higher Megapixels Don't Mean Higher Quality .. Higher Megapixels means ONLY bigger Print SIZE okay .. thats a fact to all ...
JUST wants you all to know that the world awards photograhers shoot in 2 megapixels !!!
Now whats effect the Picture Quality the camera sensor the camera aperature the camera focal width and the added lens as the Carl Zeiuss lens
All 8mp and 12 mp on the market now uses the same 2mp sensor of the old mobile fones ! and width and aperature ! with no added lens sorry se fans sorry samsung fans but thats a fact and thats the truth so don't argue and shout and return to ur spec. !
Video recording ! VGA- recording is the DVD recording is the recording of Hollywood Movies till now which is 640x480 @30fps thats also a FACT !! dont scream and argue !!! sayin SamSung records at 1024x768@ 129fps thats nonsense the HIGER resolution at higher frame rate MEANS SLOW MOTION CAPTURE !
So VGA recording @30fps which is used now in many companies is the best ...
we all agree now .. talking specially about the main comparison between shooters the N86 vs N82
Both Got added lens the CarlZeiuss lens N86 changing aperature between 2.8/4.6 BUT N82 between 2.8/5.6 which means better capture at low light portofolio
the N86 cant print larger sure due to its 8mp count also N82 print is large 5mp is not low as well
The width dynamic range of the N86 is lower than the N82 ---> fact watch the spec.
Nokia says Nonsense they say their 3rd generation dual led is stronger and consumes less power ! Totally nonsense The LED lamp is a lamp while Xenon is a GAS .. Power of the LEDs will never be stronger than Xenon ! if its stronger then why not put in real digicam ?????????????
Sure the Xenon gives wider range with the same lighting effeciency the LEDs never light wide ranges with same effeciency that a Physics Fact ok Dont shout people again :))))
Another thing the Speed of capture.. in xenon the light is emmited extremly fast and strong much faster than LEDs what does it means?? it means Faster capture Faster shutter Less shaking Less hazzieness Less shaked fotos Means Lower iso-level so ------>>> BETTER QUALITY PICS .. so nokia talk as u want we r here talking reality and facts !!!
Again in macro shots using LEDS will give Overexposured pics i mean a whitened washed pics with no detail at all ..if u dont belive try it try to catsh macro fotos when flash is on ?!!!
BUT in Xenon the Sensor adapts it self to the distance ! and u NEVER GET overexposed or WHITENED pics and agian dont shout ..JUST try to belive
So the main disadvantages of the N86 is its announced too late no xenon same design same user interface (no real upgrade) and ofcourse Higher Price
thats all and Good Luck :)))))))))))))
G900 user, 23 Feb 2009You are a st**id Nokia fanboy that don't know any thing. I don't say Nokia is bad, but their n... moreits as usual buddy,evry1 hv plane.nokia,se,samsung,moto those r not small company,they hv thr own plan..nw se n samsung showin thr innovation thn nokia wil,after dat again they n dis wil keep goinggg.wait n see wht nxt waitin for u frm nokia...bt i hop u agree wit me dat,dis N86 has lots of camera power n boost if u look through its camera technical specification...
this nokia n 86 is so ugly and heavy i am a nokia fan but i will never buy this and i want to know how bright is this new daul led flash if it is going to comes close to xenon flash
I guess nokia & the nokia fans need some brain wash.. Hehehehe.. What a piece of s**t is this..
How come on the gsmarena Pictures the white version does not say N86 but it say N85???? N86 is basicly same as N85. I had bad Expreiance with N85 and N86 is nothing more than or better than N85. Just wait for N97.
forget the long essays.... ask yourself 1 question?
are you willing to spend 675 euros on this????
i can buy myself a state of the art digital camera.. a nice mobile phone an ipod and save 100's still left!!! lol nokia cracks me up..
