Nokia is back with another powerful N-series cell phone – Nokia N86. It is a double slider phone like Nokia N85 and Nokia N96 with a powerful 8 megapixel camera that allows one to click images in natural and artificial environments. With all the other brands making its mark by increasing the megapixel on their camera, Nokia pounces back into the race with this new phone.
The design of Nokia N86 is something to talk about. The phone is a bit bulky as it weighs 149g. The phone is very stylish and the double slider feature makes the phone look futuristic. It slides in two directions, up and down. If you push it downwards, you can access the four multimedia buttons. These buttons can be used while playing music and video files, zooming in and out while using the camera and also to play games. Compared to other double slider phone of Nokia such as Nokia N95, the slider of this phone is tight and there will not be any risk about accidently touching the multimedia buttons.
The front panel of the phone has scratch resistant glass on it. The display screen is 2.6 inch AMOLED display and has a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels and clarity is quite good as it displays 16 million colors. However, the visibility is not clear when you view it under the sun. Above the display, you can see the VGA video call camera, 3.5mm audio jack and a ambient light sensor.
The rear of Nokia N86 has an 8 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens capable of geotagging and variable aperture. Nokia n86’s camera is able to take high resolution images but what we find a tad disappointing is the fact that there is no xenon flash. However, it comes with a dual LED flash and AF assist light. Even though the camera takes fabulous photographs, the image processing is not up to the mark. Around the camera, there is a stand that can be used to set the phone on any plain platform to watch videos with ease.
The user interface is kept simple as it make use of the Symbian s60 OS 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2. You can also view your Office 2003 files by means of the QuickOffice application. Music files such as MP3, WMA, WAV, RA, AAC and M4A can be enjoyed by means of the 5 equalizer presets. The sound output of this phone is very good during the calls and also while listening to music through the ear piece. However, the volume of the loudspeakers is relatively low. You can view videos in landscape and portrait mode. The FM transmitter lets you transmit your favorite songs through a predefined radio frequency. A FM radio receiver can easily pick up these frequencies.
The Real Player application can play video files like WMV, RV, MP4 and 3GP. However, the video player does not play DivX/XviD files. You can download an additional application in order to play such files. The video clarity is outstanding and you can play a wide range of N-Gage games on it. You can find 15 trial version games preloaded on the phone. The internet memory of Nokia N86 is 128mb and comes with 8GB storage. The external memory can be expanded upto 16GB.
It is available in two colors namely, indigo black and white. Here are some of the other features of Nokia N86: WLAN, 3G (HSDPA – 3.6mbps), 2.0 USB, assisted GPS, Bluetooth, and TV-out. The battery life on standy-by is upto 264 hours (3G) and talk time is upto 3hrs and 54mins. All in all, Nokia N86 is a wonderful handset that offers all round performance with an amazing camera but the user interface is a bit boring. With other 8 megapixel camera phones such as LG GD900 Crystal (8mp), Sony Ericsson Satio (12mp), Samsung i8510 INNOV8 (8mp), Samsung M8800 Pixon (8mp) and Samsung M8910 Pixon (12mp) just around the corner, Nokia N86 will face a tough time.
