Nokia Lumia 800 smartphone suffers battery woes, fix comes soon

The release of the new Nokia Lumia 800 smartphone has come with luggage – users are reporting battery problems similar to those which plague the iPhone 4S.

Nokia received numerous complaints on its forum and this forced the Finnish manufacturer to state that “We understand that some people have expressed concerns about battery life on the Nokia Lumia 800.  Early investigations show that the majority of people are enjoying the full Nokia Lumia experience without any problems.  A software update in early December will include improvements to power efficiency, while a second update in early January introduces further enhancements to battery life and battery charging.”

Nokia also mentioned that anyone affected or concerned should contact his or her local Nokia representatives at the earliest opportunity for further assistance.

The phone was released in October of 2011 and is powered by Windows Phone Mango operating system.

In addition Nokia has released support information on its forum to help users optimize battery life as much as possible — though providing tips such as turning your phone off when you are not using it is certainly not going to impress handset owners.

Users have already summed up the advice as “You’re using the phone wrong, you need to turn off every feature that makes your £400+ device, a smart phone.”

In some respects, it mirrors the battery issues faced by Apple with its new iPhone 4S release, although according to several reports its hotly tipped iOS 5.0.1 patch did little to resolve the problem, sending them back to the drawing board to resolve it with an upcoming iOS 5.0.2 update.
