Nokia N86 8MP also having problems with its microUSB port?
Some times the lesser known phones out there get overlooked when you hear about how some premier handsets are supposedly experiencing hardware issues related to their design or build. In the past, Nokia was being looked at intently when a handful amount of Nokia N900 owners were having problems surrounding their microUSB charging ports. Now the Nokia N86 is looking to follow the same path as it's being heard that “a high number of faulty Nokia N86” devices are shipped back to dealers for repairs. The problem is said to be found in how easily the microUSB port gets pushed inside of the handset as it's connected to a charging cable. Allegations of faulty ports on the Nokia N86 has lead a Nokia spokesperson to sat that “Nokia Care, Nokia’s user support center, has not recorded any user complaints about faulty USB sockets on the N86 device.” Sure it may not be happening all the time, but it's understandable the frustrations that mobile store owners in the UK are subjected to as they attempt to comprehend the reasoning behind the issue. They've gone as far as saying that “Nokia handsets seem to be the main culprit when it comes to weak microUSB ports. Users can be clumsy when charging their phones but in any case this should be fitted well enough to withstand such pressure.” These kind of isolated issues can always lead one to point the finger at someone, but unless there is some kind of investigation launched to look into the matter, it can't be clearly stated that there is a manufacturing flaw in Nokia's design of the handset.

Nokia has the worst build quality but their cheap low range phones are built solid whiles these high end phones are toys pathetic! That's another reason why I've gone from Nokia to HTC, love my little Hero.

The Hero sucks compared to, say, the N900. I have owned(and still own) plenty of Nokia handsets from the N900 to the e71 and e72, the N96, ect. and have never had a problem with the charging ports. Nokia's build quality on most,if not all, of their high end handsets are great. Stay with HTC. Your loss, dude. Nokia rules, ftw!!

Out of the Nokia's I've had the Nokia N85 and N95, were the worst built the N85 with its self peeling fascia whichwas glued to the front and the N95 which was a joke

Also the Hero's build quality is superior to the N900, with its solid tempered glass display surrounded with a metal frame and its high quality Teflon matte finish
