For those of you who are continuing to experience battery life related issues on your Nokia Lumia 800, we have an important piece of news to bring you. Nokia recently released a new software update for their latest device, and we have now heard specific details from the company on what the update addresses exactly.
According to the Finnish phone maker, the recent 1600.2483.8106.11500 update has solved issues relating to battery life, although obviously some of you are still having problems, highlighted in the ongoing discussion on Nokia’s official boards prompting the official word from Nokia, as reported by Engadget.
Nokia admits in their notes that there was indeed a problem involving battery life of the Lumia 800 and that the recent update intends to improve the situation, or by Nokia’s own wording – allow consumers to make use of the ‘full battery charge capacity correctly’. If you have installed this update, you may be seeing an improvement in battery life, but that’s not the only fix that Nokia aims to solve.
The forum post also confirms that a future update will target audio and camera bugs that are present in the current software, although those of you who are experiencing these problems will have to hang on for the time being.
Unfortunately, it looks like Nokia may have to investigate battery life problems further, as if you take a look at this discussion thread on the official boards, you can see that a lot of users are still complaining about battery life capacity problems even after installing the 1600.2483.8106.11500 update. We’re confident though that the problem will be sorted out eventually, but at least we’re not hearing of any sudden drops of battery life and it’s nice to see Nokia treat the battery life problems head on, rather than perhaps release an updated model with improved battery life like a certain other phone manufacturer has.
If you have a Nokia Lumia 800, let us know how your phone is coping at the moment. Are you still experiencing a loss of battery life after installing the latest software update?
