    Have you updated using the trick?

    Well I'm now at 34% after a fair bit of use today. It's a whole lot better than before but still room for improvement. I hope my cycling of the battery doesn't result in a reduction in capacity mind!

    I'll update tomorrow.

    Managed to trick the update, had to wait about 7 seconds before the disconnect.

    Took forever to do a backup because like a dummy I didn't take my music off first. Oops.

    Anyway, got the OS 8107 and FW 8106 together. Full charge capacity has dropped slightly from 1519mAh to 1482mAh, but my remaining charge at 100% is 1482mAh which is higher than it would have gotten before.

    I've got the same problem, my full charge capacity decreases every time I charge my phone. I'm now down to 1270 from initially 1480... :(

    My Capacity went up to 1466 today, however it's down to 83% already and I've done literally nothing with the phone!

    Nokia, you confuse me!

    I really hope I get the update soon - my battery calibration is all over the place. Yesterday, the phone stayed at 100% for about three hours with occasional use, then hovered around 75%-50% for ages, then dropped suddenly to 30%, then this afternoon I was on a train and checked my battery - 28%. Ok, fine. I started watching a video. Literally 1 minute later I had "battery critically low" and then within 2 seconds the "Goodbye" screen.

    It's getting infuriating. If I can't be sure whether my phone is going to be useable, I can't trust it, and that makes me want to get rid of it and get something else I can trust. My 1st Gen Mozart battery reporting - even when I swapped out the stock one for the extended life one - was always spot on. I really think this is doing Nokia's reputation for good battery life no end of harm.

    I've stopped looking at the stats and all that. I am not sure it's accurate anyway. But from *using* the phone, after the update my battery is excellent. I make it till the end of the day with 47%. Prior to that, I would have been totally out way before end of day.

    Just my experience. It's on par with my iPhone 4 now which is great.

    Ok, I thought I would update everybody on how my battery is doing. If you read my previous posts in this thread you know that the latest battery update did not solve fox the poor battery problem for me.

    However, after some messing around it now seems to be fixed. When I pulled it off the charger yesterday, the phone reported 77% battery left, but it quickly dropped to 76% (I did not charge it all the way). It is now 20 hours later and the phone reports 18% battery life left. This is a huge improvement from the 12 -17 hours I was getting on a full charge previously.:mad:

    So, what did I do to bring about this change?


    I plugged the phone into my computer and roled back the fireware with Zune to 7740. I then unplugged the phone and reset it in the "about" part of the settings menu. When the reset was done I entered all the details that the phone requires upon a new install -- "windows live ID" and "Nokia Account" information. I did not add any additional email accounts or download any programs. From here I plugged the phone back into Zune and installed the 8107/battery fix update.

    That was it. Now I have vastly improved battery life.:P

    That makes sense since my phone was an exchange that I just got. I basically set it up, added my apps, music, etc and then forced the update on my phone (via disconnect trick). Battery is excellent at the moment.

    I wouldn't take the Maximum mAh too seriously it seems to be bouncing around all over the place now.

    That said, 10 hours since charge with a few messages/emails and some wifi web use ... 90% charge remaining. Will see how it holds up tomorrow when I'm actually out of the house, but it's definitely looking like a marked improvement.

    Still no update here, but the Nokia support site has been updated and has this to say:

    Latest software release for Nokia Lumia 800 SW 1600.2483.8106.11500
    -Improved battery performance
    -Better Wi-Fi connectivity
    -Better voicemail notification
    -Local Scout improvements
    -Latest Microsoft operating system version 7.10.8107.79

    No time frame or word on the pattern of the update, but we know it's within the next week and a half. Good to have confirmed that we're getting the 8107 update bundled with the firmware though :)
    On Orange UK, got the firmware update without the OS update
    Firmware 1600.2483.8106.11500
    OS 7.10.7740.16

    Anyone else got the same

    i'm on orange uk (unbranded handset).
    i did the disconnect trick last night and received both updates.
    Battery has been superb today.
    it seemed to drop a little quick to 79% then it just sorted itself out.
    the battery says i've used 10hours and still have 14hours remaining. happy dayz ;)

    by the way i still cant get the diagnostic app up even after the update. really starting to wind me up tbh.

    Got mine last night (UK, unbranded, via Mac Windows Phone Connector so can't do the Zune update trick). Not been through a charge cycle yet but the reporting seems more accurate.

    Softkey backlight now not coming on for medium or higher brightness. Auto brightness seems dimmer as well.

    Oh, and I have the new version of the diagnostics app too (if you haven't got this, after the update delete the app from your app list then re-enable it with the ##634# code at the dialer and you'll get the new version with battery use graphs)

    Mine was like that but unfortunately only one day. I have two spares so may switch to one of them and see if it was only my phone.

    Not sure what you have tried but if you have not tried this. If you have the old one uninstall then dial the ##634# and it should download and install the newer version.

    Also I have a scratch on the Gorilla glass not even sure how that happened!

    ##634# just doesn't work for me. A soon as I type it in, the characters disappear and it allows me to type it in again. I have nothing under 'D' except for 'Deals - 24hr UK'

    I've even changed language settings to English (United States) - to no avail.

    I'm perplexed to say the least.

    Is there a number at nokia we can call and they can run diagnostics?

    Apart from this, the phone is working fantastic. Really pleased with it.

    I came from Blackberry...

    My Battery has got progressively worse since the update. Currently at 77%, estimated time remaining 9 hours, time since last charge 3 hours.

    I've used kik messenger about 4 times and checked my "Me" tile once.

    12 hours? Really?!

    I am a little confused about the "D" So I would like to clarify you are dialing the ##634# like it was a phone number and not searching the marketplace?

    yes i'm dialling it from the keypad. i mentioned the D as i believe the Diagnostics (once installed) reside in the 'D' area.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    My battery life seems marginally better, but what is MUCH better is the calibration - it now accurately reports how much power I have left, and the phone doesn't die the moment it hits 20% left.

    Auto backlight is dimmer too, which works better IMHO.

    I experienced the sime right after the update. Although than I found an advice somewhere to reload the backup, perform hard reset (wiping all the data) and install the new update. Now everything is OK and the battery life time really improved significantly.

    It seems that the upgrade on old and non-clean system does actually worsen the battery status....
