Nokia promises battery updates for Lumia 800s

Nokia has promised two updates to its Lumia 800 smartphone to fix a battery issue affecting some customers.

A flagship smartphone wouldn’t be a flagship smartphone if some users weren’t experiencing some form of bug and like the iPhone 4S, the Lumia’s battery seems to be the problem area.

Some users have found the battery depletes much faster than it should and in response Nokia has promised a first update in early December to improve battery efficiency and a second update in January to improve battery life and charging.

Nokia responded to customers who had taken to its support forum and also added in a statement that it recommends ‘that anyone who has concerns contact local Nokia care representatives at their earliest convenience’.

The Lumia and iPhone 4S aren’t the only other big releases to suffer from bugs after launch, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus has also fallen foul of a strange defect making us wonder how thoroughly these devices are being tested before they are rushed to market.

That’s just silly journalistic hyperbole. These devices are so incredibly complex that it’s impossible to test every single last scenario before these devices ship. While it’s unfortunate, it’s no wonder that some bugs slip through the quality control net.

And that goes for *all* the platforms, not just this Nokia/Microsoft device.
