ive seen stress tests with N900 and N97 in witch tests they were scratched with a key.so i think the N86 could take any scratch anytime iven if its delyberat.but of course only tha front of the phone.this phone is the best i ever used.has only 2 drawbacks.a litle wable.and the second bad thing is that the back of the slider scratces.and thats about it.and if this are the things that make you think twice before buyng this phone you are waisting time.just buy it and unlesh the power of the N-series.just remeber that nokia is the market leader and the N86 is their flagship of camera-multimedia phones(N8 its not in stores yet) so i think that, that says enought of how good is this phone.
syn, 29 May 2010can anyone teach me how to connect to web and what is "linksys" in wifi? hi it is in this opinion grid.tks
This phone sucks. It's too much like a magnet. I keep picking it up. How am I supposed to do other stuff when this thing is always in my hands? :)
J, 31 May 2010I had read the opinions here, this phone really like scratches, i.e: the glass surface (althou... morewhatever it is but it is glass. If you'll deliberately scratch it, it wont resist it.
Scratch resistance means it is resistant to scratches in that come in normal use. If i would rub it against sand, obviously it will be scratched.
Actually it is much better than plastic screens.
I had read the opinions here, this phone really like scratches, i.e: the glass surface (although it said Scratch Resistant)and the bottom keypad (if you slide from bottom so many times)and extra wobble thing.
How bout the Small Keys Slider (Top Slider Keys) and the Camera Lens?
Are there problems on performance if you keep many files on this Mass Memory?
Thanks again before...

nikhil, 29 May 2010how is the sound quality and volume of this phone?should i go for it or try ?sound quality is superb over provided earplugs.
via inbuilt speakers it is tiny and lacks bass, just because there is very less room around them. Speakers are same as n82 but less room degrades its performance.
nikhil, 29 May 2010how is the sound quality and volume of this phone?should i go for it or try ?This fone is really good trust me..!!

ive had this fone for 4 months now and im loving it...

syn, 29 May 2010can anyone teach me how to connect to web and what is "linksys" in wifi?Linksys, is a major provider of home and small office network products
to conect to wifi, go to- menu->tools->settings->connections->destinations->add access point and then put in your wifi router name and wep key
diz f0ne iz sick...da screen iznt scratch resistant th0 c0z mine az a scratch 0n it....
I've had this phone for 9months now, its a great phone and with the new ovi nav free it's a hard phone to beat.
My screen has a small scratch on it, so not as scratch resistant as you would think.
As others have said the camera shutter button is hard to press but you get used to it, and the camera takes pictures to rival most 8mp cameras.
The FM transmitter is very handy and I use it alot in the car, beats messing with cd's :)
The screen is big enough for most things, but prone to finger prints.
Nokia N86 is the best phone I have owned upto now, and I have owned a LOT of phones.
J, 29 May 2010I have plan to buy this phone...

When sliding the upper part of the phone place your thumb at the center of the screen and not at the bottom of dpad. Ive noticed that when pushing the phone at the later, the back panel of the slide scratch the keypad.
Siddhu, 27 May 2010Thanx for your concern..
As i type texting atleast 150 msgs per day is there any future probl... morenokia might have built the keys to bear such usage, but too much of sliding will produce a lot of scratches on back side of slide and even your keypad will be scratched (two hair scratches can be seen over my '0' key).
those symbols bear nothing important. I actually posted some ascii characters which were converted to their respective codes and nothing else.
