    Thanks for sharing! At least they fixed three issue's which where really annoying. I'm just hoping that this update will bring the 'turn off screen time out' back.

    Indeed these fixes sound great. Improved battery, camera and now bass; looking forward to it. Curious to know what the "more stuff" will be :P

    Also noticed the article is featured on WPCentral too.

    I'm looking forward to this update, but I still never got the 1600.2483.8106.11500 update. I have an unbranded Lumia 800. Has anyone else not recieved that one yet?

    You need NaviFirm Ex v1.6.1 and Nokia Care Suite 5.0. It's a bit complicated, but I just installed this firmware update on my 800. Music sounds a lot better for sure.

    For anyone else, here's the guide to do it this way:

    Nokia Lumia 800 and its upcoming 11501 firmware [Manual Upgrade Tutorial]

    I've not done it myself and probably wont bother to be honest, I'd rather have it through official channels than risk something untoward happening.

    I received the 1600.2487.8107.12070 update via Zune today. No new camera modes, but sound quality is indeed better. Haven't tested the battery life yet though.

    Looks good, my battery has been a bit funky lately. Hopefully this update really does fix it and make it consistent!

    when you say sound quality has been improved... are you referring to the earpiece or only from the headphone jack?

    I have a Lumia 800 running on AT&T. I just got an update this morning.
    Current firmware version is 1600.2483.8106.11500

    Looks like that is not the latest one Nokia is rolling out though. Am I at AT&T's mercy as to when I get firmware updates or Nokia's?

    Nokia's, but the great thing about the 800 is that it's easy to flash updates meant for 800s in other parts of the world. Many of us are flashing the 12070 update that was released for the Vodafone New Zealand 800. Other than a quick Vodafone logo at boot and a pinned shortcut to their homepage (which you can obviously remove), there's no difference from the unbranded software and thus no real reason not to go for it if you want the latest and greatest.

    My discharge rate was over 200+ Which equated to a 12 hour day. How I used the phone really had little bearing as the discharge issue was occuring effectively whilst the phone was idle. I do not know what the rate was when the phone was in standby but I am willing to bet it was high.

    Anyway the firmware update from Singapore has been out a couple of days now so I visited the XDA forum and thanks to a tutorial and the collection of the right tools created by Heathcliff it was onwards and upwards.

    Process is pretty straightforward and was easy especially as I was only performing a firmware flash. A couple of tools and 1 cab file and I was away.

    [CAB] Official WP7 Updates List: 7.10.8107 + ALL LANGUAGES complete + OEM updates - xda-developers

    Anyway all flashed now and running Firmware 12070. Uninstalled the old diag tool installed the new one. Both had the same result anyway, new one removes some details and the graph.

    Previously 200+ consistently now hovers around the 100 mark. Tomorrow will be my first big test to see if I make it through a day and night without looking for a plug socket for my evening Fruit Ninja session.

    I did the CAB Sender install as well, nice and easy, hopefully the improvement will be noticeable over a couple of days.

    What files do I need for the cab install? I thought that I needed the firmware plus a language pack but from the sound of it you guys are simply pushing the firmware update?

    If you are doing the firmware then you only need the firmware CAB file and the two tools that are linked in my post above.

    The language packs apply only if you are going for the 8107 update as that is an OS upgrade.
