    I have never had my Lumia shut off on me and I have gone down to 5% many times but it did today.

    I was starting to panic not knowing if it would start backup again or not. I plugged in, it lit up and showed the battery symbol for a couple of minutes and then booted up just fine. :)

    I am wondering if this is a safety net due to the complaints about not booting up after a completely drained battery.

    Anyone else notice this?

    Anyone want to try? :D


    Thanks much :)

    I'm thinking this is part of the tweaks to help with the problems of not booting up when there is a full drain. For Windows, this is normal to do, it hibernates at the default 5% to prevent a deep drain. Drains that are deep are pretty harmful from what I can understand to Li-on batteries. Anyways, were you able to drain less than 5% before is what you are saying?

    Yes I was able to. I think the lowest was 3% and the phone didn't shut off.

    Yes, this IS becuase of the Tango update. I just completely drained my battery about 30 minutes ago. And instead of the phone constantly trying to boot you get the "dead battery" logo for about 5 minutes instead of 30 seconds before it will try to boot.

    Here are the release notes:
    "There are also enhancements to the performance of the startup sequence - most notably providing a more reliable boot sequence following a full depletion of the battery"
