Interface:

The Nokia N86 8MP utilizes interface that we know well from other devices of the manufacturer - S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 and we have already reviewed it in details.

On the home screen you can choose whether the StandBy application is showed horizontally at the top of the display or vertically on its left hand side. In the first case you will have six shortcuts that can be customized to your own liking, with information on calendar events, alarms, messages etc being showed below them. Seven icons appear on screen in the second mode - once selected they unfold and provide additional options.


Phonebook:

As we have pointed this out in other reviews of devices running the same operating system,
the contacts function is excellent, entries feature quite many info fields and each of them can be assigned a really large picture that appears at incoming calls. It doesn’t matter if you enter the first of the given name of a person - the system searches by both. It is a cool thing that you can choose to assign videos to contacts rather than the standard ringtone and picture that appear when you get an incoming call.

Organizer:

Of course, there are no differences in the organizer function that is typical of high-end smartphones. Four types of events are supported by the calendar – meetings, notes, anniversaries and tasks, each of them with their own individual times, alarm sounds etc. You also have a calculator, unit converter, Quickoffice to open Office 2003 documents and file browser.
