The 6086 is an enigma. That’s my term for mobile phones that have some of the best and worst features combined in one handset.

Why? The 6086′s features – 5 hour battery life, UMA over WLAN, quad-band, EDGE, Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR and A2DP – reads off like any Nseries phone. Yet you take the good with the bad, and the bad in this case is a horrible camera (VGA), 5 megabytes of internal memory (expandable, however), and some of the blandest looks I’ve ever seen in a flip phone.

I just don’t get it.
