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 Compared with the competition, the phone's display is a bit low resolution and the software feels outdated.
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. Form Factor Nokia’s designs tend to be rather generic these days. The N86 doesn’t deviate from that too much.
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. Some might say it's a tad too late, and have commented that Nokia is losing foot in a market it once dominated.
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. The digital camera is a true ace, it's for a reason Nokia calls the phone: Nokia N86 8MP.
