Nokia has announced it will rollout two separate software patches to tackle the widely reported battery problems affecting owners of the newly launched Lumia 800.
The Finnish phone-maker issued a statement in response to a flood of customer complaints concerning battery life on the Windows Phone powered Lumia 800, which went on sale in Blighty just last week.
Despite boasting a ‘Battery Saver’ feature that automatically makes adjustments to the handset when power level is low, it doesn’t appear to have made much of a difference to scores of disgruntled early adopters.
Nokia said: “We understand that some people have expressed concerns about battery life on the Nokia Lumia 800. Early investigations show that the majority of people are enjoying the full Nokia Lumia experience without any problems.
“A software update in early December will include improvements to power efficiency, while a second update in early January introduces further enhancements to battery life and battery charging.
“Both are planned updates and will be made available via Zune. We recommend that anyone who still has concerns contact local Nokia care representatives at their earliest convenience.”
So there you have it, dates for not one, but two software updates to remedy whatever is causing your handset to lose its juice too quickly. In the meantime, we’d advise turning off any non-essential services for the time being to conserve energy.
