This is the most good-looking NSeries. I'm so happy it's no longer an N81 look-alike.
Okay, okay, okay. None of you have tried this phone so stop this senseless bickering about the phones lack of features. As far as the N86 Article from gsmarena goes, N86 has "unprecedented" camera features that arent listed on the spec sheet. May I quote;
"Photography-wise, the N86 8MP promises unmatched performance that's closing the gap between cameraphones and point-and-shoots. It's the first and only cameraphone to offer variable aperture values and a 28mm wide angle lens."
Overall, I recommend people to trial the phone before making comments such as above. Lack of Xenon may be annoying but nokia has its reasons for not adding it on. But when it comes to adding features onto a phone, Nokia generally offers better quality (examples; N82's Xenon Flash, 5800's Music Quality, S60 v5 UI)
Absolutely the best phone in 2009. Start to saving for this lovely phone. The design is superior. The body is scratch resistant wow what a phone. 8mp with a new technology. A must buy to know what it is. A 28mm wide angle lens very interested to know. Have a lens protector and a camera shutter. Wonderful. Usb charger at last and a kickstand made it easy to watch wow. 8gb internal memory plus micro sd slot up to 16gb wow what a big. Digital compass FM Transmitter 3.5 av jack and much more so valuable for money it's a must buy. This is unique phone and different from other phone. Cannot wait for this. Come on nokia release it quickly. Thank you nokia for this future phone.
godrik, 20 Feb 2009still i can say....N82 is far better then n86...loli agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nokia do not give a sh**t about their customers! They think because they have the biggest market share, they can get away whit everything!
Well…. NO! We are not sheep’s! Screw you Nokia!
wtf is nokia so damn stubborn? why o why do u keep refusing to combine the beautiful 8mp carl zeiss lens with xenon? why led flash? it's like putting an aston martin on 12 inch piece of crap wheels. it just doens't make sense!! do u think by leading us on with a good camera and putting the crappiest flash possible, pplr. will by ur phones and hope for a better tomm. w/. xenon flash?? Nokia, get ur head out of ur @ss, bring back the xenon flash now!!!!
just when u thought nokia's designs couldnt get more boring..... BAMMMMMMMM ladies and gentlemen.. the n86.
This phone will sell because of the 8mp camera but ,like you all said ,nokia needs to work more on their desing ,same n81 trash !

The N86 is not completley finished yet, they will tune the camera & programes.

i know this model so cute...but,,,,u must improve your design...
the keypad not suitable for lady's....
and i have one design..
do u want that.....
I`ts funny how much you people know about this cellphone, when you really don`t know.
It has dual led flash, like N85.
The camera has 8 mpix, but the really difference is inside,it has a completley new camera shutter technology, you see it`s not the pixels that makes the camera. You can`t find this shutter technology in other devices.
Iphone looks great, but it`s soooo big!
I want to carry the phone in my pocket like i can with N86, not in a backpack. I don`t want a touch sensitive screen.
N86 has the latest version of S60 - 3.2. for devices without touch screen.
S60 - 5 is for touchscreen models.

Well... You should consider that the N86 IS STILL IN ITS BETA PHASE so expect ground-breaking improvements when it goes on the market for the retail version since the camera drivers aren't final during beta phase of development.
Anyway... It's quite funny that the SE fans that are Nokia haters just kept on bragging their SE Idou? Lol! As we all know, SE unfortunately was unable to present a real IDOU device at the MWC. Hell yeah, not even an underpowered prototype Idou ever appeared. Truth be told, the Idou is still a concept phone and when you say a "concept" phone, it basically means it's still in its very early stages of development. So why brag for that "concept" phone? Plus, the Idou will be running on the Symbian S60 open source software platform, which as you probably knew, is not even done yet. And according to rumors, it will be released only on 2010 and yet SE is announcing that they will release the Idou on 3rd quarter 2009? Strange, isn't it?
So it's pretty safe to say that SE is just desperate for attention that's why they announced the Idou even if it's still a concept phone.
Sorry SE fans, SE is just drooling you off.
n78 n81 n85 n96 has the same design with it
n79 and n97 has the same design too if coloured in black
the different is only the details an the form
does nokia's designer have no ideas?
Anonymous, 20 Feb 2009Why should an old N85 in a new cheap crap looking plastic housing be rated more than this?You might wanna bother 2 read at least a couple of comments b4 posting ur comment as this mobile's scratch resistant glass screen, outer metal coated surfaces also occupy more than 50% of the mobile.
So it isn't ur typical CRAP PLASTIC model.
