I could not continue using my phone as I hard-reset it and found that it reinstalled to ... 8107. So I was stuck with the same LIST of bugs:
- 88% max battery
- battery level highly unstable (-50% for 5 seconds but enough to shut the phone down at 50%)
- a"?" for the battery icon
- 7h hours of battery life
I took it to a Nokia Care center and am now waiting for it to be replaced (i don't think Nokia will try to repair it as it seems to be the worst Lumia they will diagnose...). the NCare told me that it should take appx 10 days. Hoping to get a better phone.
I'll give you more updates when i'll get the phone back.
NOTE: I did not mention that the silicon case was DAMAGED out of the box (the rubber around the camera button is streched).
Same problem here, rang Nokia UK and they insist that it gets sent for repair.
I persuaded wife to get this phone as I have a WP7, now all I get is earache because this phone isn't lasting her a day.
Tried all updates and resetting the phone but ? still showing.
Not happy to say the very least
Same issues, and no hanges after the latest firmware upgrade.
I brought my Lumia into a Nokia Care Point for a substitution.
I'm from italy.
I'm very disappointed with Nokia!
After 2 weeks (15 days exactly), i have gotten my phone back. I have 1,5 days of battery with 3G now which is 6 times what i had before.
All other issues (like "?" icon, random battery value, max charge at 88%) are now fixed.
I have backed up the phone and will keep the backup file safe if i have issues in the future...
Hope it will run as intended from now on.

I have the same experience after they replaced my defective unit (? as battery status).
With WiFi and 3G on, and syncing 3 mailboxes (1 Exchange, 1 Office365 and 1 Hotmail on the setting ‘when items arrive’). I now get around 1,5 days of battery life with moderate to heavy use (browsing, playing a game of wordfeud, etc)
I’m now very satisfied with my Lumia 800
@EoAssassin: now did you backup your phone? What tool did you use?
What firmware Version and hardware version do you have, as a matter of interest..
Revision hardware: 112.1402.2.3 is what I have any gets poor battery life.. I am wondering if the Revision hardware: 112.1402.2.4 is a fixed model!
