Summary: 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: It's been almost a year since the first mobile phone with an eight-megapixel camera sensor from the likes of Samsung and Sony Ericsson was introduced to consumers - a year that is long in the making of Nokia's first similar device, the Nokia N86.
Summary: E xcept for a few designer issues, such as the design of the keypad and the position of the keys below the screen, the Nokia N86 is a nice and neat multimedia smartphone. All the functions are there. The Symbian software runs well and makes everything easily accessible.

Summary: The Nokia N86 8MP is a premium multimedia phone with a price tag close to those of the best touch-screen smartphones on the market. It’s not a bad phone at all, but there really isn’t anything to get excited about.
Pros: Reasonable build quality, decent camera, Ovi Store preloaded, zippy Symbian interface, AMOLED display
Cons: Expensive, nothing overly new or exciting, some keys are a little small
Excerpt: Nokia has taken its time getting into the 8 megapixel camera market and this, their N86 is the entry. It has a lot of catching up to do and the big questions are – will this one be worth the price? And will it have enough features to make you want to buy it? Take a look, here’s my opinion.
Conclusion: So is this a goer? Well on the camera phone side, definitely. There are enough control and features here to offer those who like to snap while out and about. The ability to share your images to social networking sites, email them or merely transfer them by Bluetooth to your computer is also likely...
Pros: Camera, dedicated camera buttons, screen, simple and easy to use
