Nokia starts rolling out a battery fix for the Lumia 800
Nokia has begun to roll out a battery fix for the Lumia 800 which it says will extend the battery life to normal levels.
The manufacturer has said that a fault with the phone meant that it wasn’t taking advantage of the battery’s full capacity. The free software update should rectify this and also enhance wi-fi connectivity.
The update will be rolled out gradually over the next two weeks but won’t be sent directly to users’ phones. Instead they’ll have to download it to their computers and then transfer it to their Lumias.
Any improvement will be a welcome addition as our Lumia 800 lab tests found the smartphone’s battery to be seriously underpowered – we only managed three and a half hours of talk time (on medium reception levels) or a paltry 90 minutes of web browsing before it ran dry.
However, according to Nokia, the Lumia 800 that we tested shouldn’t have had the software problem. If that’s the case then the battery is simply underpowered and the update may have no effect. We’ll know more once we’ve updated it and retested it.
