I'll take 8: Nokia N86
When Nokia introduced the N86 at the 2009 Mobile World Congress, the company promised that the 8-megapixel shooter -- Nokia's first -- could replace your standalone camera (a familiar promise, no?). We didn't quite agree, but we did find that the N86's camera functions were impressive and it delivered in image quality. Feature highlights included a panorama mode, variable aperture (F2.4, F3.2, F4.8), and a 28mm wide-angle lens.
- Overall score: 7.7 (3.5 stars)

The good: The Nokia N86 8MP features an 8-megapixel camera that takes excellent pictures and include advanced options, such as a wide-angle lens and variable aperture. It's also a capable smartphone and offers Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G support.
The bad: The N86 is expensive. Compared with the competition, the phone's display is a bit low resolution and the software feels outdated.
The bottom line: If you can afford it, the Nokia N86 8MP is one of the more advanced and better camera phones on the market today, but there are cheaper alternatives.
