Lumia users can just ... moreHey buddy,maybe u r right, abt nokia users regretting their phone after one year.But guess what,i am regretting android phone( htc desire hd) just after 3 days after buying it.I found only better thing than my n8 in htc (android) is the browsing experience.and to tell u truth,i am still enjoying my n8 after 18 months of purchasing it.Do u know why? Cause the symbian os is customisable.u can play hell with it...so think before u write a comment.
I just updated my phone.
-Battery life increased but not 3 folds for sure, yet to be tested.
-Hardware lights are always on (varying in brightness actually).
-Camera now focuses well in video mode.
-Call ending... issue is resolved (worked for me on 1 call that I did, earlier it would not end).
-Better bass now for sure. Still I have my doubts.
-Interference noise is addressed. But SNR in songs is still terrible :(.
#My previous Lumia was fine with SNR and interference, damn I replaced it because of battery issue).
I suspect major manufacturing defect on some models that Nokia is trying to cover-up with the updates. Very sad.
Humble request to GSMArena to do their infamous audio quality test again.
Yes, the update looks very promising so far. Battery life seems to be alot better.
Now I can finally boast my Lumia 800. Super Update Nokia. Battery has improved leaps and bounds. Regular usage of about 2 hours of music and 3G. As for Bass response, well now it is what it should be and what people expect from a phone like this. It was virtually non existent earlier and I couldnt wrap my head on the reason. Really happy with this update.
I really hope this sorts out some bugs because the lumia 800 has been an awful phone for coming back into store, it has so much promise. Lets see if it delivers.

That usage you envisioned was exactly the way I felt with my "ah so nice" HTC Desire. Which kind of, y'know, sucked. Mind you, LG E900 now in house for over a year and even more usable due to updates compared to the buying date.
When was this update released? I dont think i have done it yet, will have to check it out. Battery life is the only thing that upsets me about the phone, as everything else works fine. If this is fixed (or at least inproved) then it will be a mega win for me!!

jungle880, 07 Mar 2012nokia has fallen way off, poor battery life, unsatisfactory displays. i had the n8 an the only... moreThis is what im talking about in my last post. It took a year before people admitted N8 was so bad fone, lumia is going down the same path.
Ahah, microsoft only changed the battery usage statistics indicator.
Lumia users can just admit they regret buying this. Its good the 1st month, new and shiny, its ok the second month, neutral the third and then the regrets starts to sneak in. But will still take many months before users start admitting it, history has shown that it takes up to a year before people will admit they bought a bad phone. Need at least 2 disappointing updates before hope dies as well.
Battery Life has really improved alot...and I mean that...And the hardware backlit always remains ON...+ camra indoor quality has imroved...no greenish tags ...Have yet not checked the audio...will update shortly guys...
And yes even the call ending issue has been resolved..
PROUD THAT unlike APPLE and other, NOKIA RELEASED THE UPDATE 1st in INDIA
it's a nice hp, but if Nokia don't make any move to solve this battery issue, it can be useless. I'm waiting review from other user as well about this matter. wait and see
I have done some diagnostic test to see how much battery is consumed in mA before and after the update. It is drastic, in standby the battery is consumed much less and dischrage rate spikes on screen use and app usage only. Before it was always high. Plus some old bugs have been fixed. I have made a post about it here: http://www.mywindowsphone.net/143/the-new-lumia-800-update-improves-battery-performance-and-fixes-bugs
