Recently purchased Lumia800 (white) vs old Lumia800(cyan)
Both devices feature the same firmware revision number .12220 but the hardware rev number is ....2.3 for Cyan and ....2.4 for the white one
Also battery lasts a lot longer on the white one than it use to last on the cyan one when new!!!
Any one any ideas why this info is hidden in the later build?

That cracked screen brought a tear to my eye. Also the picture is upside down
Not sure why it's hidden, but can you confirm if full charge capacity and remaining capacity is shown under detailed battery info? My guess would be they just didn't want it in 2 different places, even though I think it was fine the way it was.

well I dropped it while I was getting some cash out from a cash machine and I was so depressed I had to buy another one next day so I can send the cyan for repairs (insured). Anyway :) there is no "detailed battery info" submenu that I can see. Diagnostic tools main menu looks identical on both devices. Am I missing something? Cheers

I see that's a shame. At least it was insured so you're covered I guess.
I am running firmware revision .12220 and hardware revision .2.3 on my Lumia 800. When I open the diagnostic tool, there is the battery status (simple view) and detailed battery info directly below that:
The simple battery status is shown in pic below:
Now when I open the detailed battery info and swipe over to the detailed section, that missing info is there.
Sorry the pictures aren't as clear as I'd like, my camera wouldn't focus. Anyway, I hope that helps somewhat

It's particularly strange that's it's not on the cyan one. I have the UK version too with same FW version. I am running Diagnostics App version 126.96.36.199 (you can find it in the about section by tapping on the ...). Perhaps they updated it?

Checked cyan Diagnostic App, guess what? Version 188.8.131.52 :) .To be honest I did get the phone first day it came out, hence the version number. So it explains it. Thanks for shedding some light on this. As far as the white one goes I think they must have added some better battery management within hardware revision? But it's only a guess. Cheers

Sure no problem. It's good we have a good idea why our diagnostic tools were a bit different. Yeah I'd agree with you with regards to the white lumia. It was one of the major complaints with the Lumia 800, so it would only make sense to tweak it in the later HW revisions.
Slightly off topic question: are there any differences or improvements with cameras/photograph quality between the two phones?

Hmm, I like the question. I am working in London tomorrow so I will take both with me and try snap some detail reach pictures. Hope its not gonna be too overcast :) It would be interesting to see if there are any differences. I will post tomorrow evening.
