Nokia 6086 review

4.8/10 AVG.
RATING



4.8/10
Informr score
The Nokia 6086 currently has an Informr score of 4.8 out of 10. This score is based on our evaluation of 15 sources including reviews from users and the web's most trusted critics.

The Nokia 6086 has the ability to make WiFi calls, and that is what distinguishes from the many look-a-likes in this overwhelmed segment of the market: the entry level phone.

The 6086 is a sturdy flip that comes with Bluetooth, VGA camera, MP3 player and a speakerphone. The internal display is disappointing, generating only 128 x 160 pixel resolution, a low enough quality to work on the eyes after a while.

The Nokia 6086 is rated at five hours of talk time and four days of standby time.

The strength of this phone, again, lies in its ability to make calls via WiFi and that it has a good call quality. For people who are not concerned with bells and whistles this is a perfectly decent phone and should be on the list of phones to review.
