Samsung has issued a fix for the battery life problems being reported by owners of the Samsung Galaxy i7500 Android mobile phone.

Since launching, a number of reviewers and users of the handset have highlighted issues with short battery life as well as a fiddly screen lock function.

However, a new firmware upgrade released today will address the problems and offer users a much faster and smoother handset experience, according to Samsung.

It’s not clear yet what impact the update has had on battery life, but the screen unlock time has been cut to 0.5 seconds, the company claims.

The update also adds a number of other improvements, including an amendment of the digital compass that enables better integration with Wikitude, Google Maps and Sky Maps.

Features of the Galaxy include a 3.2-inch touchscreen user interface, a five megapixel camera, HSDPA for a fast mobile internet experience, Bluetooth support and 8GB of storage.
