Can anyone tell me if the update is available in Belgium, yet? I just contacted Nokia online support and they told me to try this update but they weren't sure if it was already available.
My phone crashes when trying to redial a missed call or checking my voicemail, anyone else have this issue?

GSMArena, could you please measure the audio quality again with this new update? Also some new pictures would be nice.

I just updated my Lumia a moment ago. The back light issue has indeed been rectified. About the improvement of the battery, it is yet to be known.

I wish gsmarena team tests Lumia 800 battery life again so that we all can see how much exactly has the battery life improved.

I find this phone to be a heap of over hypes s*it. I am sorry I ever got it and once I trade it in and get an iPhone like I originally wanted I will be happy. No tethering STILL and on Orange in the UK its not compatible with BT Openzone even thug hOrange sell the product on a package stating the BT Openzone wifi availability. Bitterly disappointed with this useless piece of plastic. Terrible sound. Useless battery life and all aps etc are turned off. One our browsing internet sees it go from 100% to 40% or less. Full 100% charge and over night just sitting there no aps on and it goes to 70%. WhILE IM SLEEPING.

Definite improvements

1. music player bass fixed, now my Purity headsets go kaboom
2. battery discharging at ~70mA (with auto sync, EDGE and push messaging enabled) so the standby time will definitely improve beyond expectations
3. Camera picture quality improved in terms of color balance, but NO new settings as mentioned above
4. Keypad backlight fixed for medium and high brightness
