The Nokia Lumia 800 managed to bag Nokia with a pretty good overall reception, combining a great OS with some striking design. For those of use who had used the Nokia N9 however, a notable downside was the comparatively mediocre battery life.
Nokia however have issued a statement that over the coming weeks, two power enhancing updates should make their way to Lumia 800s far and wide. The first will improve efficiency of the handset so that sync and screen don’t leave your Lumia 800 sapped out by the days end. The second update expected in early January will enable high voltage charging and oddly enough increase the phone’s battery power from the currently capped 1300mAh to the full 1450mAh.
The statement from Nokia taken from their forums can be found below:
” 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.”
