    If anyone bought their phone recently it already comes with the update. Mine was shipped from a store in the UK on December 2nd and it already had the battery update on it.

    Hi all,

    I'm new to the forum. Just bought the Lumia 3 days ago. I would like to say that I really like wp7! The hardware of the phone is second to none imo. The lumia's curved screen is amazing!!! The OS is extremely smooth and have had no problems. The only let down is the camera (although I read its a software thing).
    Regarding the battery life:
    Mine seemed to be ok, leaving it on standby and using it occasionally resulted in a full days use easily. Downloading the update as we speak and will let you all know of any improvements.

    Ending calls has been wonky for me since the update. What about you all?

    A casual observation so far, but battery life does seem to have had a bump upwards.

    Hi all,

    An update so far...the battery life is not as good as I first hoped for. Although with usage going from moderate to high, it has lasted me 8 hours with 24% left. During this time I have watched various youtube clips, taken a few photos, checked my email manually and browsed the internet for around 15-20 minutes. I also had 1 call and sent a few messages.

    In my opinion this is not a typical day of usage, I used it much more than expected. Just a tip that I read and has helped quite a few people: setting the date and time manually helps the battery life by quite (try also setting the carrier manually this might also improve the battery life)

    Overall I am satisfied with the phone although was expecting a bit more from the battery and the camera is not that special (although I still consider it good).

    I'm happy with the the battery life.

    I think removing 'People' and 'Xbox Live' off the home screen improves the life.

    You do know there is another update coming in January that improves it still further?

    Yes I know about it. Removing the people hub removes a very important tile imo as this is the one you are most likely going to use during the day. Also I read that the phone improves after around 2 weeks (maybe you need to condition the phone)...we will wait and see I guess! The hardware is truly brilliant though :happy:

    Mine was a bit bad to start with. But, the battery has been getting better with recharges. Also, little to no connection at office isnt really helping the cause

    Just a quick update with regards to my experience with battery life. At first I was a bit underwhelmed with the battery but as more time passes it has improved substantially! I would be worried that it wouldn't last me a whole day with normal use, but it now does so easily.

    Last night at 2AM it still had around 25% charge after using it normally from 7AM (of the previous day) which is very good imo! A Nokia spokesman said that the software update should be coming in 3 weeks (not to the black color strangely enough).

    Hope your experience with the phone has been as good as mine (I absolutely love wp7.5 )
