I have put to charge till 100% (charge complete indication) on 26th November 2012 at 10:00 PM.
Now the time is 10:51 PM on 27th November 2012.
Battery remaining now is 63% (as shown by Nokia battery monitor).
No background applications (except BEST PROFILES software which activates the selected profile at the saved time) are running till now. Just 20 minutes voice call and 10 minutes GPRS (both not continuous) and ringtone testing for 10 minutes (each song clip one by one) at volume 7.
They told that they have not changed the handset.
If you feel that this is an improvement, which part of my mobile was faulty (before giving to the Nokia care)?. Any guess?.

Now you should get 2 to 3 days in normal usage and 1 day witj heavy usage. Also pay attention to what's running in background. Maps never close it selves and will eat a bit of your battery, a bit mor i may say. Last night i forgot to kill it's processes (use best taskman to do that) and through the night my battery came down by 6%. Normaly, in standby mode, my battery comes down with 1 to 3% maximum. Now i use an app which put's my phone in power saving mode auromaticaly if i don't use it. So after one night in standby mode, my battery is the same...

Nokia's Bad Call on Smartphones:
wow!!! ----> Might sound strange but N8 in Greece from 220EUR (June 2012) rised up to 280 EUR (today)! and its not easy to find it anymore as it was 3 months ago. The same thing is observed also for N9.
awesome device.... M proud to be a N8 user....!!Loved it... Love NOKIA
To have more battery life ...simple things to be noted
1)Do u use 3G data everywhere and always..If yes then ur antenna finding for best signal strength draws more power
2)If No or not often...switch 3G mode off when not in use and see....you will have max backup on battery....just use a toggle widget by defualt to switch....
I get 3 days flat battery by switching this method...even by hearing music and watching videos..meant movies...
To all :
Please comment on the battery life of this handset in general.
I got my N8 back from the service on 26th Nov evening.
Now the time is 06:40 AM Indian Standard Time (GMT + 5.5 hours)
It was charged full at 10 PM Indian Standard Time.
Now the battery level is 95% remaining (after 8 hours 40 min of standby). Lets see till 24 hours.

Bob, 22 Nov 2012My N8 started behaving abnormally a few days ago. It gave the message that memory was low. I t... moreIf you were using Opera, it is normal, that program eats allot of space with it's cache files. If doesn't boot anymore you maybe have to do a hard reset. This procedure leaves you without C: memory, also with this procedure you will lose all the factory apps, the only way to get them fully back is to reinstall firmware with phoenix. Out there are allot of ways to get them but only half working properly. i don't like the mess presented there. So a good flashing with phoenix is the real answer to that. Your mass memory might be saved. I never had my mass memory deleted when doing a hard reset but some people say will be formatted to. Not in my case. So... what to say, you may not get back everything, unfortunately. You can go to Nokia, maybe they can help you more with the issue.
Dean, 24 Nov 2012What about the Nokia Lumia 800 and 900? Can their batteries be replaced by the Nokia Care?They are all replaceable. Search youtube you will find them... here is Lumia 800 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YS9azQLWNAI... Nokia N9 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9u7r4j0atU
Anonymous, 24 Nov 2012somebody please tell me. Why do some people want to downgrade frome nokia belle to nokia anna?... moreTheir is no problem with Nokia Belle, just that there are some things missing (cut off) from Anna. And some people cannot get used to it. Also, some say, that the battery was better with anna, some say that is better with belle. I say, it's the same, or a bit shorter then in Anna...

You learn!!! Apparently your technology history is a "curpapir". But minding the fact you're a small boy, i forgive you... once! Second off all, in 2008 Nokia bought Symbian, that is what i've said. Learn to read, apparently you don't know to read either. Third off all, Symbian is older then you. 2004 my bright a**! Don't get "smartie" with me here. Now... go teach your self some technology before coming here with your ignorance.
