Nokia N86 overview

by Paul

N86 I was lucky enough to be at Nokia's N97 / N86 launch on Friday in Regent street and got to play with both handsets. 

The N86 has an incredible 8 mega pixel camera, an OLED (QGVA) screen, duel slide keyboard, etc. In fact besides the camera, the spec isn't too different to the Nokia N85. Just like the N85, the Nokia N86 features an AMOLED screen, which will give a brighter screen, increased colour range, improved contrast ratio and reduced power usage.

The design is very sleek and attractive and at 149g it's certainly pocketable. The whole front of the phone is covered by tempered glass which looks awesome. Enhancements such as the enlarged Dpad make the control cluster easier to use.

The overall build quality of the phone is excellent. Nokia really have improved the build quality of the NSeries. There's a big difference holding the N95 in one hand and the N86 in the other.

What struck me most though, was the quality of the camera. It's without a doubt the best I've seen on a Nokia handset. I was lucky enough to get an early glance at some of the shots Rafe over at Allaboutsymbian had taken. When compared with other Nseries handsets, the N86 was significantly better.

Checkout Rafe's Nokia N86 review for a more detailed look at the phone. It's definitely worth a read.

The N86 seems to be a great phone. Does it support the divx & xvid formats. If yes, thoes it support the all versions of codec?
