Nokia to release second battery bug fix for Lumia 800

Nokia to release second battery bug fix for Lumia 800If you're reading this on a Nokia Lumia 800, hopefully your battery will last long enough for you to finish the article before conking out, that despite Nokia having already released a supposed fix for the issue.

Only problem was it didn't work, but fear not: it's having another go and is insisting that this time the bug fix really will get the job done.

The fix aims to solve issues with the Lumia 800's on-board Wi-Fi as well as the battery and officially takes the software version to 1600.2483.8106.11500.

The update will come via the usual channel and will be released in what Nokia's describing as a "staggered pattern" over the next fortnight. Obviously, it's worried about server overload so is trying to keep everyone happy here.

Users bemoaned the state of the power pack almost from launch and a software update was promptly rolled out last month but it didn't appear to solve the issue, leading to more ire from those early adopters.

How's your experience been with the Nokia Lumia 800? Have you been driven to distraction with the battery? Let us know below.

Battery lasts a working day for me. Meaning when I get up at 7 and go to bed at 12 it's just only complaining the battery is low.

Fine for me and I use it for Spotify and games during the commutes.

From the desription of the fault it sonuds like a classic "manufacturing repeatability" issue. EG Some phone made are not as good as others.
I guess "Compal Communications" that make the Lumina 800 for Nokia may have missed something.....

The Lumia 800 is an impressive phone. Coming from Android I'm actually happy with the way it handles everything. And dare I say it, I'm even starting to prefer the Mango OS. Two things that get on my **** though. Battery life and lack of T9 keyboard. I'm not a young dude so I find I can type messages easier on T9. The speech recognition kind of makes up for it but will drain the battery even quicker. Almost a perfect phone in my eyes.

Just checked my firmware and I have .8107.11501 which must be the next iteration and the battery still doesn't last the day. Even when not under strain.
