Market leaders Nokia are usually among the key news makers at mobile industry and always surprised us with it advanced technology. Continuing long run of success, they have added another new thing to its N series, N86, the new imagining-savvy flagship. Its 8 megapixel camera with new added features which is a top contender for daylight shots, rival the Samsung I8910 Omnia and Sony Ericsson W995 for the 8 megapixel crown. And…...
Read on.It comes with a battery, a stereo headset, a charger, a data cable, an audio controller, a Nokia Ovi Suite DVD and a user’s guide.
N86 looks alike its brother N85 but a bit thicker, and only with a light different between their keypad. It fits well in a hand no matter the mode you are using it in (portrait/landscape). The one we test is entirely black
The keypad on the front panel: 2 selection keys, Send/End keys, Menu key, Clear key, as well as the Scroll and selection key in the middle which is responds to circular movements from your finger. To be honest, the D-pod is not the very definition of user-friendliness but isn't too bad either.
Sliding the Nokia N85 up. You may aware of that Nokia have improved their keypad here from over flat one to more sensitive one.
N86 sports the double-sliding format started by N95. Sliding the phone in the other direction reveals the dedicated music player/gallery/gaming keys. They are in same order as N85, but the icon any the keys have improved a lot. I like N86 more.
On the right, we have the volume/Zoom key and the camera shutter. 2 stereo speakers placed at the top and the bottom of the device.
On the left, there is the key lock switch only.
At the top of the device, we have power key, Nokia AV connector (3.5mm) and the USB slot.
The back panel placed flash and video light, lens cover and the 8 magepixal camera.They are perfectly balanced.
Well~ the 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and a built-in dual LED flash is the remarkable thing in N86, with a wide-angle 28mm Carl Zeiss lens of variable F2.4/3.2/4.8 aperture. The fast mechanical shutter ensures pictures with less motion blur while the dual LED camera flash is powerful enough for excellent photography and video capture.The quality of the photo taken by this camera can be compared by stand alone digital cameras. Cool~
N86 got a really cool kickstand. We love it so much, but you have to take special care with it. It seems a bit weak which is easily to be broken.
It comes with a huge 8GB built in memory plus the handset supports a memory card slot which can hold up to 16GB of external memory. Unfortunately, you have to remove the back cover to insert the memory card here.
N86’s screen sure is amazing. It’s with incredible contrast. And the UI can also work in landscape mode.
You can select the default provider here. As N86 is a 3G HSDPA capable Smartphone which supports high speed Internet connectivity, fast data transfer rates, so that we can enjoy multitasking features with thanks to the 3G technology.

N86 offers bright OLED screen with scratch resistant hardened glass, high-end digital camera, and easy photo management, full sync capability with a PC and TV-out support for slide shows also offers services such as Nokia Ovi with Nokia Maps for the A-GPS module and Nokia Store and N-Gage. Absolutely, it is a great improvement of N85.

It’s called Voyager Pro for a reason. The headset has gone through more than two dozen rounds of intensive professional human-comfort tests, skin sensitivity study and repeated drop tests. The result is the epitome of ergonomic artistry, durable and comfortable to wear.

The AudioIQ² technology cancels noise and makes sure you sound like talking face to face with your callers. With the duo mics design, you can wear it on either ear.
Volume control is within reach.
The LED status indicator can show the battery life. The 6-hour continuous talk time and 5-day standby enabled by the fast-charging and long-lasting battery is ace.
The presentation of the headset and the pouch absolute shows off the headset royalty status quo.
The pouch is especially designed to accommodate the headset and other package contents, so that you can keep them neatly when you travel.

After the Touch Pro2 and Diamond2, HTC got its new Snap, non-touchscreen device and lacking of the playful and tricky features, however, targeting at the audiences who loves simple and neat. It offers a simple set of features: “inner circle” optimized for e-mail and messaging, as well as the trackball…Keep the things back to pure with no gimmick.
It’s comes with a battery, an AC adapter, a stereo headset, a USB cable, CD and User’s guide.
Snap with a slim, sleek designed to fit perfectly in the hand, as it measures 12mm thickness only. At the first glance, it reminds me of Blackberry Bold, but slightly thinner and smaller.
Snap got the same features as Blackberry Bold did-the trackball. Maybe that’s one of the reasons that Snap looks alike Bold. Since the trackball itself is the impressive performer that is great and responsive to every flick of the thumb.
The QWERTY keyboard which is using a four-row layout. The domed keys here are in right size and incredibly tactile. The typing speed is great as well. It is one of the best keyboards we have ever set a thumb on. Well ~can you see the MSN logo on the forth-row there? It is the quick connection button to your MSN account. The Inner circle button which is on the right brings the e-mails rise to the top for quick access with one touch. Actually, it’s very convenient and having streamlined communication here with Snap.
On the right, there’s the USB/ audio jack slot. Still lacking of 3.5mm jack!
The convenience key here which assigned by default to voice-commands.
The back panel is simply coating in rubberize material, so it's not slick and you feel confident that you're not going to drop it. The 2 megapixel camera lens also here, but please don’t set your hopes too high with it. It is the totally different things as of Touch Pro2 or Diamond2.
This time, you are able to install your microSD card by removing the back cover only. No need to take off the battery.
On the start screen here. Over simple and neat and nothing attractive. Some might argue we are just too picky here. And yes we are!
All the office works are organized with the familiar experience of Windows Mobile.
HTC Snap is simply stylish with light and portable size. Texting is faster and more comfortable than ever with the QWERTY keyboard with natural offset pattern and the shortcut keys make the communication faster and much more convenient. Sometime simple is the best! It’s worth a look when you are shopping for your next business handset.
