Battery life at 60% now and now shows over 2 days left, it's never shown 2 days since I've had it!
I had the prompt this morning telling me there was an update, worked perfectly. I have a sim free Lumia 800 given to me by the Amazing Collective.

I've updated last week my Lumia 800 and tonight, while I was sleeping and the phone charging (original charger), it has died. The alarm, of course, didn't sound this morning and I arrived late to work.
<irony> Thank you Nokia, good work. </irony>
I've just installed the update. Previously I'd get 12 hours out of the phone with GPS and WiFi turned off with very little useage (maybe an hour talk time, some email + SMS). The Lumia 800 is a joke of a phone.
First Nokia in years and definitely my last for years to come. Lets hope this update might let my lumia surive til the weekend before being binned.

After the update the phone is better. I posted earlier that my phone is turning off automatically but I didn't see that behaviour again. My phone is working fine and battery life is very good. Hope the later updates will not screw the current battery performance. However the battery status missing issue is still present in the device.
I think my battery life improved dramatically when I used the latest Network Setup. Before I used to get 12-16h, now I get 20-25h.
And FYI - No new firmware in USA as of this writing
I have a Black Lumia 800 from 3 network as well. waiting for the update since it was released in india and singapore. loosing patience.....
Can someone from Nokia explain why unbranded version of Lumia 800 have to wait so long? Why not release worldwide?
Got the update today in Germany (Vodafone). And now I can see in Diagnostic-BatteryStatus a value of "current discharging" with 70mA!!! Before the update it was always 140mA or higher. It seems that something happens...
