New Feature

i dontknow that its new or old thing, but i have seen this for the first time, so new for me..

If we press center button of Dpad for about 2 seconds when keypad is locked, we can see this Big Clock screen saver.. Its not theme dependent as is inbuilt.

Nokia N86 8MP Review from INDIA

I retired from the mobile world one and half year ago when i joined my job. Now i am working as a software engineer in one of the best companies in india, and dont have much time to post anything on my page.

But this time again, Nokia has produced something which really attracted a busy professional like me.

So lets begin with Nokia N86 review, its not a detailed one but you can grab some important information from it.

Nokia N86 India


You will really like the build on N86 as it has screen which is very much figerprint resistant and the back of the device is really nice as there is nothing which can be easily tampred.

N86 Kickstand

Kickstand is nice  and when  its opened, photos application automatically starts up. You can also set any application to run instead of Photos.


You may Not like the quality of photos, so i wanna clear something here.

N86 pics are clicked by N82

N82 pics are clicked by N86

Both N82 an N86 combined pic are clicked by N73.

I dint had any other device to take pictures.

Media/ZOOM Buttons

Here you can see we have sepperate buttons same as N85 for Media player/Zoom.

When i first saw the keypad of the device, Calculator came to my mind. 😛



Frankly speaking, N86 has got the best screen till now. I dont know about N97, but this AMOLED screen leaves N95/N82 far behind. I Will be comparing it with N85 soon, till that time have a look on this.


Crispy N86 Screen.

Media player

Look at the difference in contrast between the two.




Look at the crisp

As you can see, N86 is quite thinner than N82.

On Kickstand

You can watch movies using kickstand.

Above: Light on standby.

Below With Backlight ON.



The best Camera in phone ever, but needs some firmware upgrades to settle down to normal in night conditions.



Wider lens.


Power key, Audio/Video slot and USB/Charging slot.

Panorama Mode(Click to enlarge)

Sound Quality

This is the area in which NOKIA compromised. The speaker sound is not the way it should have been. You can see the small speakers in the image which hard produce a nice sound.

Infact the headset provided within the box is great and the sound quality is exteremely  nice.


The bass from the headfones is the best i can say in S60 devices.

As most of you who are from india, will me more interested in this section.

So ypu can see the MRP in the image below, but its available for Rs.23700 in Indian Market.

N86 Price In India

N86 Price In India


N86 comes with some great applications like Maps 3.0, oxford dictionary and wavesecure with free lifetime license.

Maps has free lifetime license for pedistrian navigation, but only 7 days for Drive license.

It also includes one free game from NGAGE.




Nice phone, with nice features, but lacking in sound quality.

Needs some firmware upgrades for image stablisation and phone stability as sometimes the phone restarts unexpectedely.

So buy the phone and enjoy the  8MP camera.

With N82, for a day now. Ipressions..

N82 unboxing

Someone asked me..

“hey u bought n82 plz tel me abt the cell how is it like abt camera , speakers, gaming, & whether it has touch navigation wheel like in 81 & r u happy with its battery life & which colour did u bought & how many colour r available?
plz help me 2 planning 2 buy it . bye tc waiting 4 ur reply”

Here is my Reply..

First of all CAMERA..

Its simply superb.. The image quality in low light conditions is comparable to a DIGICAM..
The speed with which it starts up, then the speed of taking pics with autofocus, n then saving them is simply mind blowing.. About 4 secs for the whole process..
Red eye comes too often as xenon flash is there..

If u have N95 rite nw, u wil b little disappointed with the quality of in built speakers, as treble is not as much as N95, and the loudness too is a bit less.. But i mostly prefer to use headset, so its not a big issue for me.. Sound output from headphones is siply superb.. Its slightly better than the original N95..

Its same as N95-8GB n N81, but here you can play games in landscape mode too, which can be on either sides, left-oriented or right-oriented, which N95-8GB doesnt supports.. But the Game demos of FIFA n ASPHALT r dere, which can be played for only 10 times each.. So far no game is available in full version so that one can buy the best he likes..

No its NoT there n i dont think dat there is any possibility that NOKIA wil add it wid a software upgrade! Its a hardware, which is not present.

It has 1050 MaH battery n here is da log, what i did from yesterday.

5:37 pm Bought N82
5:40 pm Inserted SIM n Battery, Memoty card was pre inserted in the phone only.(2GB)
5:57 pm Copied all contacts n other important things from my old N95.
6:30 pm Captured around 17 pics with XENON always ON.
7:00 pm Reached home, Captured a 4 mins Video on high resolution while on the way.
9:00 pm Finished coping my songs n videos from PC to ma Phone.
9:10 pm Watched few videos on N82s great n bright screen.
10:00pm Listned 2 music for n hour via headset n browsed da web through WIFI at da same time.
11:30pm Charged da phn for 10 mins as i went for dinner.
12:00am Downloaded Sports Tracker application thru wifi n registered on the site through phone only, and played with GPS for about n hour. Downloaded MGMAPS too..
2:00 am Slept with the alarm on.
10:00am Checked Orkut n various sites via WIFI n still on bed.

Battery is showing 2 signals still there. Its great. If i had N95 n had done the same Battery would havent last after 12:00 am.. m sure..

Warm Titanium. No other Colour is available.

Once you lock the GPS for your new phone(takes around 3 mins), from the next time even if u r sitting in your room, it wil jst take 1min n 30secs to lock. This is maximum time. Gps it quite fast n the MAPS application is also better.


I got it for RS24000. From Nokia Priority Dealer, n m the first one to buy in Chandigarh n Patiala.

These r my initial impressions, will update you with more, later on!!

Feel free to ask your questions..

Why Naviwheel has been eliminated from da production Model of N82!!

This video clearly shows that the naviwheel is present in the New Nokia N82, But the production models which were shipped to various bloggers arround the world by WOMWORLD, dont have anythng like naviwheel.

Why has Nokia eliminated this feature infact they could have given an option in settings to enable or disable this feature.

Have a look at the videos below, n leave your comments below..

The video above shows the Nokia N82 advertisement published by NOKIA itself..

The handset given to TEO at symbian-freak, also shared the video on his website which showed the naviwheel working perfectly fine for him..

You can have a look at that one also.
