Nokia N86 - Pocket-lint

 

A great camera phone, we just aren't so sure about the S60 these days

Camera, dedicated camera buttons, screen, simple and easy to use

Lens cover annoying, S60 looking dated

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.

Nokia N86 - First Look - Pocket-lint

 

With competition from Sony Ericsson, Samsung and LG the N86 will have a tough job on its hands when it comes out in Q2

Picture quality, HSDPA, Ovi file sharing service, GPS

Simple handset, lens cover

With a simple, perhaps over simple design, the N86 doesn't break any traditions of what you would expect from a Nokia Nseries handset, playing it safe all the way through from the design to the S60 user interface.

Nokia N86 8MP review

 

Nokia's first ever 8MP handset is no ordinary camphone – it features a wide-angled lens. Will its rival mobile snappers be running scared?

Nokia streaks ahead in the 8MP optics race but the N86 is handicapped by a lack of compelling photo features and Xenon flash

Preview: Nokia has fashioned its first 8MP camphone. But does it have the firepower to take on Sony Ericsson's Idou?

8MP sensor and wide-angle lens. Good connectivity. Stereo Bluetooth

Staid design. Lacks Xenon flash

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…

Nokia N86 8MP review -

 

Great landscape, portrait, action and panorama shots, Nokia Messaging, Nokia Maps

Average macro shots, a less intuitive UI than we?re used to from Nokia, and you can?t share photos on most popular networking sites

Nokia N86 8MP Camera Review: Can Nokia’s first 8 Megapixel camera phone live up to the hype?

 

While the 8.0 Megapixel camera phone range is hardly under populated, the notable absentee has undoubtedly been Nokia. Still happy to launch top of the range phones with 5.0 Megapixel snappers and responsible for one of the best camera phones in its...
