I don't know why, but I have got to say I think I am starting to like this phone more. The keypad might look all old school but thinking about it, is that really bad? It will be a doddle to text on :). The buttons on the other side when its slid down in multimedia mode look so bad its almost good! I am just dissapointed with the 8gb storage, really should have been 16gb like n96. Yes I know memory card is availible but will the computer see that like it sees the hard drive space?
And where on earth is the menu button?? Surely they haven't gone back to pressing the main select button to use as the munu button.
Got to say though, that camera sounds impressive with the mechanical shutter and all, and the adjustable apature. Just hope the flash is up for it as Nokia say its the next generation. Before I do anything with upgrading I am going to wait until this AND the Nokia N97 has been fully reviewed.
Someone tell me then whats a better phone to get which is not a touch screen?
nearly 30000 hits in less than 24 hours....almost 29000 hits are negative opinion.shows there is massive interest in nokia.But nokia made poor design.
SE & SAMASUNG Goes too far
carl zeiss, 17 Feb 2009@celladik candybar phones are boring. Haven't you noticed? Upper midrange to flagship devices... moreI kn0w that, and im n0t after f0r a flagship ph0ne, all i want is an upgrade of my old n82, so iwant it to have 8mp with xen0n, 2.6 inch like th0se with samsung i7110 wifi hsdpa hsupa new OS AND all the features of n82 plus adds on, i prefer a candy bar ph0ne over flip slide or touch ph0ne, you cant blame me f0r that.
zac, 17 Feb 2009ow gosh.. come on nokia! I'am ur biggest fan, but SE will kick you with SE Idou!
N86? 8MP?... moreZac, why dont you compare the Idou with the the N97... give me the 97 anyday... no keyboard.. BAH!
The 12mb camara will not be any better than the 8mb N86
nearly 30000 hits in less than 24 hours.... shows there is massive interest in nokia. A lot seem to be SE and LG fan boys trying to knock the best.
Have tried several brands but the operating systems are terrible compared with nokia.
The N85 is high on my list for my next phone.
Candy bar type phones are good in quality becuase of lack of unmovable or mechanical part(s).
All slide phone unit regardless who is the manufacturer is not good in quality because as time goes by in using those slide unit, flex wire withnin it tends to loss connection because of cut thin wire.
ow gosh.. come on nokia! I'am ur biggest fan, but SE will kick you with SE Idou!
N86? 8MP? No xenon flash? just QVGA screen?
why don't you just renovate 5800xm into high resolution camera such as 8/12 MP with xenon flash?
I think N82 more better than N86!
Nice phone and 8mp but no xenon flash also no tv out no touch screen no offec no simbyan 3.5 also small screen for 8mp
what an ugly phone!!!ugly disign,old flash for a pore camera,old symbian!!!bleahh!!!
candybar phones are boring. Haven't you noticed? Upper midrange to flagship devices now are all in slide form factor, while middle entry phones like 4-digit models are mostly in candybar.
Additional info about Nokia N86 8MP which Gsmarena did not include is that N86 is the first Nseries phone that is made with scratch resistant hardened glass with metal materials.
it is time NOKIA to prove that high megapixels can't capture a great quality photo
with it latest 8MP
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970The new Nokia N86 8MP (yeah, it doesn't get any more obvious than that) is the first 8 megapixel cameraphone to sport a wide 28mm lens
can the 12MP do that?? CANNOT
The Nokia N86 8MP is the first device with variable aperture ranging from F2.4/3.2/F4.8. That means the device does betted in low light situations thanks to the wider aperture of F2.4 and takes sharper shots in bright daylight thanks to the F4.8 aperture value.
the 12MP got this?? DON'T HAVE
Hahahaha ... eM Lovin da comments of the Nokia Lover ... !!!
