;DETLIKE; Nokia N86 - Refurbished - why we like it
  • Nokia's first 8 megapixel camera-phone, with wide-angle lens
  • Fantastic music player with built-in FM transmitter
  • Classy design with kickstand for easy viewing
  • Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and push email

The refurbished Nokia N86 from 3 is a superb addition to Nokia's hugely successful N-series. Its 8 megapixel camera, combined with the huge range of features that characterise the N-series, make it a definite winner.

The obvious place to start with the N86 is its amazing camera. Not only is it Nokia's first 8 megapixel camera, but also has a wide-angle lens, letting you get more into each shot taken through the Carl Zeiss lens. With new variable aperture technology automatically adjusting for the amount of light, the N86 makes your digital camera redundant.

One of the major features of Nokia's flagship range is the vast array of connectivity options on offer, and the N86 certainly doesn't let the side down. Everything from GPRS to 3G HSDPA is on board, alongside Wi-Fi, giving you access to the internet and email wherever you happen to be. Email is as easy to use as entering your username and password, with the phone doing the rest for you, and the web browser is equally good at its job, helped by an excellent virtual mouse pointer. But the N86's connectivity options don't end there, as it also has USB, Bluetooth v2.0, and a memory card slot (with an 8GB card included as standard).

As you would expect from a top-range phone, the Nokia N86 has an impressive range of multimedia features. The music player is excellent and Nokia have also included an FM transmitter, which means you can set up to broadcast your favourite tracks to anything local with an FM receiver - your car stereo being the obvious choice. The video player is just as good, giving you full screen viewing on the big 2.6" AMOLED screen.

With the 3 Nokia N86 marking their first entry into the 8 megapixel fight, they needed to produce something of high class, and they did not disappoint. With its wide-angle lens offering something different to its competitors, you should definitely take a look at the package the N86 offers if you want a top class camera-phone at an affordable price.

cracking phone with all the features you could need. its got all the capabilities of a mp3 player / video player / pc like web access / iplayer / tv / facebook / ebay / skype / messenger / full normal phone and txt functions / video calling / gps / satnav / there are hundreds of apps available from ovi store. List goes on.. Best mobile iv ever had and if you dont have a pc this is a subsitute. Id say as good as or better than a n95 but no infrared function (who needs that anyway!) - prefer its features and functionality and chose it over the iphone 3 (not sure about iphone4 specs... Not interested either!) cant belive the clearance price as im still paying twice that for a inferior package! as i said at start... cracking phone and highly recommended.
