I offered it to one of my friends. He bought one and I admit he used it correctly but he says, Its LCD became dark after 2 months. A repairman has said to him this model of Nokia suffers many problems So I recommend you to investigate more about this model before purchasing.

This phone sucks also as Nokia. I had mine for a month and the USB port fell off inside the phone. Many other same experience they had with the USB port falling inside the phone. Nokia wont even fix it saying that it is due to misuse. They should have made the USB and charging port different.
Read these discussion to prove to you that there is a big problem with this phone read on this discussion:
I will not be buying another Nokia phone ever. N97 Easily breaks one speaker, sucks so more this N86 too.
No Question about the cam but the built all in all I can give 1/10
DO NOT BUY NOKIA.

And its perfect i have my N86 for a long time now and its the best phone i have ever had no pros at all with it and the camara on it is brill inside or out a 1st class phone
I had a question for those using the N86 white...
Does it get dirty easily? I mean since its color white compared to the black indigo N86?
Tnx a lot
I have N86 for 5 months now. Every thing is good. I had 2 problems thoguh:
1. many dust specs under top left corner of screen
2. keypad got scratches
I took my phone back to Nokia service center and i had to insist on replacing top screen cover (faulty o-ring) and keypad.
Now its good, no more dust or scratches in 1 month.
Do not just clean dust, it wont help, o-ring have to be replaced in case of dust.
Photos are amazing ! It impresess me every time (was using k800 before)
CON, 15 Mar 2010thanks for your reply. What "programs" can be installed to reveal sender's id? thanksI stand corrected but that is Service provider dependant, you can change a setting on your phone to diss-allow sending your Nr but not the other way round, again i stand under correction though
I myself have the big brother of this phone, granted it a lttle older but prolly at around the same price by now, now i've had my N96 from new for the last yr and a hlf and other then a camera with slightly better resolution the older phone has more of everything else and i love my
n96 if you're gonna spend 5 K on the N86 rather buy the more established N96 all you'll be sacrificing is camera resolution and i guarantee most of you won't even notice the difference, that said still a decent phone this N86 i give it a 4 out of 5 for almost everything a 2 out of 5 for value for money i'd go for the N96 rather
Can anyone tell me where I can download mobile tv or live tv application for my N86 to use with Nokia DVB-H su33. I have seached OVI store and could not find it. Thanks

Yes, you can install Garmin Mobile XT software. You can use it without internet.
Actualy, people who says that n86 is not night time cameraphone are right, but in daytime n86 is the winner. n82 only advantage is xenon flash. nothing else. If you like n97, 5800 but dont need touchscreen n86 is for you. Absolutly the same performance and no tochscreen. I like it
i have it only 15 days and phone accumulates dust under the screen.
that is 100% true
Anonymous, 15 Mar 2010is it true that the screen accumulates dust?No it isnt. This phone's been mine for almost 2 months and i have no problem with the screen. it's as amazing as i expected it to be.

Everyone knows dat N86 is way better than N82, in all aspects. There's no point of comparing these two. They just wants to prove dat their N82 is better than N86, they are just jealous because N82 is outdated and they can't afford to buy N86. Those who think N82 is better, go to hell. And leave us alone, because this forum is for N86.
Most people take pictures in bad lighting conditions. Very few will have the opportunity of a bright sunlight aiding you in capturing images. That's why no matter how good the sensor on N86, it still can't and won't beat N82 in night shots. N86 is a daylight landscape camera phone that's why it's got a variable aperture wide-angle for capturing landscape sceneries. N82 is a night closeup camera phone that's why it's got a xenon flash for capturing brighter and clearer images of anything within 2 metres.
