    I just pre-ordered a Lumia despite all the reports of battery life. At least I have until they ship it to change my mind...

    I'm just curious as to how widespread this problem is. Obviously more people with a problem is gonna post something than people that are perfectly happy.

    So anyone got a Lumia and is happy with the battery?

    I honestly have no battery complaints so far - it's holding up as well as I'd expect it to, and if the updates improve it further still so much the better.

    My battery has been fine, really good actually. I may have been one of the lucky ones. I've been using the white background (which is supposed to use the battery faster) and pretty heavy use and easily getting full days. My wife's has been good also, and she has been gaming.

    Oh good, someone if Canada that actually has it, which carrier are you on? I'm on Bell, and I'm trying to get my gf's dad to bring it over...

    I hope I don't have to pay early termination fee and switch carriers :(

    All updates come through Microsoft. But if your phone is carrier locked, the update goes from the OEM (Nokia) to the carrier for testing before being released. If your phone is carrier unlocked, the update will pass from Nokia, to Microsoft, who will deliver it to you via Zune.

    I don't know how it goes on WP side, but thinking 800 is sold unlocked, it would be silly for it not to get updates.
    Carriers slow the process as they need t approve it, while unlocked phones get the updates first. That's how it usually goes.

    Wow, mine doesn't have a good battery life like that. Wonder if it's a batch thing.

    Which carrier are you on?

    Mine's with 3 UK.

    But getting it replaced tomorrow due to issues with screen... So I'll still be on same network, and might get one from a bad batch again. Battery max charge is 1327 mAh and drains like mad.

    As mentioned in another thread, for some reason, the battery charge has been limited by software means and will be increased to 1450 mAh with the second update.

    I bought one on Friday, and returned it on Saturday after it gave me 2 hours battery life!!!

    The store swapped it straight out for me, and the battery on this is very good. I have 7 email accounts checked, weather app, xbox live, facebook, twitter, all running on the live-tiles. Along with Nokia maps, local scout, calendar, zune, and I'm getting a good 14 hours out of it.

    The battery will get better after a few recharges anyway.

    So I'm happy.

    I came from Blackberry. Started messing about with this phone in the shop and was totally blown away by the OS.

    Very very impressed.

    Mine does pretty well too. The standby time seems really good, although WiFi does seem to eat more battery.

    Using the phone at work (10 hours on w/o WiFi, checking mails, streams, doing searches and a few calls and text leaves me with more than 50 percent left.

    On the Weekend I have managed to drain the phone, but that was pretty extreme use with videos etc.

    Compared to the Omnia 7 (which has good battery life), the Lumia 800 has a good amount of power to back the hardware. As mentioned already in this thread, battery capacity is restricted by software and is set to be increased.

    Reading all the info there seems to be two issues batteries lasting just a couple of hours and people with moderate use getting only 7/8 hours

    I got my Lumia on the first day and was only getting 7/8 hours with moderate use. one push account and 1 manual email account.

    I ran the software update 7740 after my phone was already setup and was still getting the 7/8 hours.

    I completed reset my phone and setup from scratch and am now seeing much better battery life, could be all the bits I downloaded when first got it are now not on.

    But I never saw 1 day 8 hours in the battery life which I do now

    The battery life for me is manageable it is just not as good as the Omnia which was very good. I can however get through a day of moderate use and I continue to use it as I did the Omnia.
