First Look: Nokia 6086 (T-Mobile)

1:45 /

The Nokia 6086 is a well-built, basic camera phone with good call quality, but its most impressive feature is its ability to make calls via Wi-Fi.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor for CNET.com and this is the Nokia 6086. It is one of T-Mobile's first phones that is compatible with the hotspot at-home service that lets you use certain phones like the Nokia 6086 to make calls via WiFi. On the front here is a simple monochrome external screen. On top here is a VGA camera, on the side here is a volume rocker and a dedicated camera button and on the other side is a micro SD card slot. Open it up and you get a pretty light luster screen, but its okay for a pretty basic phone like this. On the bottom here you get a very nice keypad, it's probably one of the best keypad we've ever used on a cell phone, just because it's really nice and bubbly, it has really good texture and you can easily dial by feel. There is almost no way to press a button by mistake here. So over all we really like the design of the phone, it's really nice and compact, very rounded and curvy. Features include a VGA camera, a music player and of course [inaudible] mentioned support for T-Mobile's hotspot at-home service. Connecting to WiFi is pretty easy, all you have to do is go to the WiFi settings and scroll to the selected network and off you go making calls via WiFi. Call quality was pretty good, with both with the WiFi and the GSM. It also switched calls between the different networks pretty easily, so over all we think it is a pretty good phone. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Nokia 6086. ^M00:01:31 [ Music ]
