Excerpt: This is a review of the new Nokia N86 - Nokia's first 8 MP camera shooter. It is one of the best camera phones currently available. Check out the review to see how it fares against other phones in its range.
Summary: If you can afford it, the Nokia N86 8MP is one of the more advanced and better camera phones on the market today, but there are cheaper alternatives.
Pros: The Nokia N86 8MP features an 8-megapixel camera that takes excellent pictures and include advanced options, such as a wide-angle lens and variable aperture. It's also a capable smartphone and offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G support.
Cons: The N86 is expensive. Compared with the competition, the phone's display is a bit low resolution and the software feels outdated.
Conclusion: The Nokia N86 takes awesome snaps and rightfully deserves its place alongside the Sony Ericsson C905 and LG Viewty Smart as a superb cameraphone.
Pros: The greatest Nokia cameraphone yet. Sure there are a couple of 12-megapixel cameraphones coming out, but the Nokia N86's eight-megapixel offering serves up pictures so crisp and large you'd be forgiven for thinking they were taken by a dedicated compact camera.

Cons: The lack of a Xenon flash does take the shine off what would otherwise have been a killer cameraphone. For a phone which prides itself on its camera, it's a pretty big oversight. That said, the picture quality is still high, so we're prepared to overlook this misdemeanor... just this once though Nokia!
Excerpt: Nokia’s first phone with an 8-megapixel camera is a neat, effective smart phone. It’s particularly good-looking in white with its matt back, but there’s a black version if you prefer. What we like Nokia’s camera phones have been consistently good, with class-leading performance (minimal shutter lag, decent resolution). So an 8-megapixel camera is a good thing in such safe hands.
