Here it is, my long overdue full review of the Nokia N86, but you might want to check out the earlier 4 parts before that:
Nokia N86: Mighty Machine with a Lil Achilles’ Heel
A brief intro
What is possibly the greatest asset of the Nokia N86 8MP? Well, the name tells it all; yes, it’s the mighty 8 Megapixel camera. It might not sound so great now in 2010 with the coming of Samsung M8910 Pixon12 and subsequently the SE Satio, but this time last year, the Nokia N86 was the pack leader (the Samsung Omnia HD wasn’t doing so well). With a dual slider mechanism similar to the Nokia N85 and N96 earlier, it was indeed one of the best buys, for the camera alone. But what if you’re looking for an all-rounded Nseries? Is this phone worthy of considering, or is it just another flawed Nokia with potent photography capabilities?
I like the Nokia N86 for many reasons, but also dislike it for many specific reasons likewise. It has a balance of pro’s and con’s, but in my opinion, the N86 is quite an all-rounded device, albeit with minor and yet tolerable problems. Read my review below, and you’ll know why.
