Watching video on the N86 8MP might not be the best experience around due to the smallish screen, but, hey, there's the kickstand to create up for that to an extent.

The video player has no DivX/XviD support so you need to utilize a third-party video player, such as the popular Core Player. Or you can of course leave it to Nokia Personal Computer (PC) Suite/Ovi Suite to transcode your videos to the MP4 format, the handset supports out-of-the-box.

Frequency Modulation (FM) radio

The Frequency Modulation (FM) radio on Nokia N86 8MP has the familiar neat and simple interface and can automatically scan and save the available stations in your area. It also has RDS support and Visual radio. The latter requires internet connection and WLocal Area Network (LAN) won't do.

With RDS and automatic scanning however you're less likely to resort to network data transfers with Visual Radio. In addition Nokia N86 8MP offers a direct shortslit to the online radio directory where hundreds of stations are available.

The transmitting signal strength of the N86 8MP is decent, making it quite usable in a car for example. The Frequency Modulation (FM) transmitter application itself has a really nice and simple user interface so the handset has every chance of replacing a Compact Disk (CD) changer in your car for example.
