Nokia announces upcoming updates to improve battery life of Nokia Lumia 800
Nokia has bet on their new Windows Phone Lumia 800 and Lumia 710 to keep the company alive. And it seems that the Lumia 800 has faced some complaints when it was launched in UK recently – the phone's poor battery life. Well, the Finnish company has announced that updates will be released for improve the Nokia Lumia 800's battery life.
The new Nokia Lumia 800 Windows phone was launched in UK a few days ago and boasts to bring a new exciting experience to users; their advertising campaign's tagline is "The Amazing Everyday". Most users did experience an "amazing" experience, though that is the need to charge the phone every now and then. To be fair, every smartphones are limited by the battery technology, though the Nokia Lumia 800 has a slightly more serious case. One user in the Nokia support forum states that his usage isn't very high, but the battery drained very fast, and is now at 47% when he only used it for just an hour. The Finnish company has announced that it is planning for two updates which will improve the Nokia Lumia 800′s power experience, though that would come only in January next year.
This is the official reply from company in the Nokia Support Discussion:-
"We understand that some people have expressed concerns about battery life on the Nokia Lumia 800. Early investigations show that most people are enjoying the full Nokia Lumia experience without any problems and we have not been able to identify a single root cause that would lead to erratic battery behavior at this stage. A software update in early December will make some improvements to power efficiency, while a second update in early January introduces high voltage charging, increasing the Nokia Lumia 800’s battery power from 1300mAh to 1450mAh. These are scheduled improvements and will enhance the overall experience, but are not designed to address any issues that may be occurring with individual products. We recommend that anyone who has concerns contact local Nokia care representatives at their earliest convenience."
