Re: Lumia 800 Update

Guys you don't have to wait two weeks for the update I said before theres a trick to force the update which is very simple and doesn't require any additional programs unlocking etc. and it doesn't matter which country you are in. Ive heard of people from different countries and operators doing this.
read it in the comments here:

http://wmpoweruser.com/nokia-pushing-out-firmware-update-for-lumia-800-with-battery-life-fix/

it won't work straight away you'll have to get the timing right but you'll definitely figure it out in half an hour. Updated mine this way yesterday.

regarding the backlight of the keys: why do people think its a bug? it kind of makes sense for it to switch off when its bright outside and your screen brightness goes up doesn't it? I really don't have a problem with it.

Don't forget to update your diagnostics app as well by reinstalling it.

Re: Lumia 800 Update

Hi Aslan93, how do you delete the current battery diagnostics in order to re-install? Can't find an option for this!
I hooked up to Zune this aft and was told an update was available.. all just went to plan - cool!

Re: Lumia 800 Update

the soft keys change is an issue if like me you like to use the phone on high brightness at all times. Now when  in a dark room you can no longer see the soft keys. why should I have to change the screen brightness when I prefer high. Surely this should be a user chosen function and not one just forced upon you.

Re: Lumia 800 Update

simple, hubrad :smileyhappy: just go into the apps menu and press & hold the diagnostics icon, then a menu will drop down with the option to uninstall

   Well,I just updated to this new f/w and to my dissapointment i noticed that camera has got worse, than it used to be. Under low dim lights without flash pictures were a little brighter and a bit yellow, now they're darker and greenish, which looks not as good as yellowish. I specifically took  pictures of same exact place before and after update just to compare. This is very sad...

Unfortunately, they didn't fix stuck autofocus in videomode, when i first tried it it worked, now i tried it again, and still, stuck again, it workes only after you switch it off, then back on.

 

Also, i haven't seen this discussed, anyone knows what "stateofhealth" in new diagnostics/detailed battery info tool means? It shows 356 for me, is it good or bad? And what is this "cycle count" , for me it's 65535?? 

 

Also, Nokia Drive still can't work off-line, i thought i read somewhere they fixed it?

Re: Lumia 800 Update

Hey Orka, I get those same figures in Detailed Battery so hopefully they are good!

Hmmm, update on the battery capacity.. Full Charge Capacity keeps changing, trending in the downwards direction! Now dropped from (IIRC) 1492 mAh to 1400 mAh. Remaining Charge drops as expected.

I'll give the camera a go tomorrow. Never expected much from a CZ Tessar lens anyway! It would have made more sense to make it a better lens and half the resolution.

Re: Lumia 800 Update

Well it looks like the full charge capacity number is different while its changing to right after unplugging. Mine changed from 1394 while charging to 1444 mah after i unplugged it.
Also after this update one of the issues returned that was fixed by the previous one: when my lumia died(which was around 15%) it took about 40 minutes after plugging it in for it to vibrate and switch to the charging icon. Although in my opinion this is ok for the second charge cycle as the new firmware is probably adjusting itself to the battery and hopefully it will get better after a few cycles. Its definitely too early to judge just yet..

To take screenshots on windows phones you need to get the phone developer unlocked then side load a screenshot app.

I paid $9 to get mine chevron unlocked which doesn't void the warranty but that service is currently unavailable. Another option is to register as a developer with Microsoft and open an app hub account, this costs significantly more.

Any other free methods of opening the OS up to non market apps may void the warranty and cannot be discussed on this official forum.

Re: Lumia 800 Update

Hi. I've had the same issue of battery capacity (full charge) falling from 1480mAh to 1360mAh after the 11500 update and the soft key backlight not working on medium or high brightness modes. So the update to fix battery issues and improve functionality, in my opinion, has not worked. Not happy.

Try this.

 

Stop looking at the Battery stats but instead use the phone as per your normal usage pattern and see if lasts longer than before. The battery level is not consistent and I suspect it's inaccurate.

 

We already know the battery is rated at 1450mAH so why are people going crazy over inaccurate battery readings?

Re: Lumia 800 Update

Thats the problem with diagnostics, why worry about 50mA, what's that 15 minutes less use?

 

These cells are not all exactly the same capacity, but they will be within 1-2% of the manufacturers value.

 

The biggest consumer of power is the screen and keeping brightness low helps conserve power, I easilty get 24 hours out of my lumia, but then I don't use as a games console!

Re: Lumia 800 Update

Hello,

 

I am new on this forum. I have my Nokia Lumia 800 in black colour for two weaks now. I use it in Slovenia but mobile is German based from T Mobile. I did not recieved the newest update yet.

 

My Nokia charges to 1336 tops and I notised when my "batery saver" say it is 100% full the charging diagnostics are around 1220, then I leave a phone charging and it charces to around 1330 every time. I send around 20 sms every day, manualy check 3 linked e-mail accounts around 10-15 times a day. I make around 5 calls a day and my Lumia gets around 24 hours at least. When my usage is not as high I can use my Lumia if I unplug it from charging at night before sleaping next two full days and I have to chrarge it againg the second day in the evening. So I am very happy with the battery. I also have to say that during the 8h sleap my battery lose max 5%. My battery saving is allways on and brightness is set at medium.

 

There are three thing that botter and they are that my MMS service is not working, (internet is fixed with manual apn), market is showing me German prefered apps and rewiews are written in german and missing the apps like Skype and Opera Mini.

Re: Lumia 800 Update

mate you can set an APN for mms in the diagnostics app. its under "Apn Settings". Now i haven't seen this before the recent update (maybe just didn't notice) so if you haven't updated yet and can't see this option then update and try again, all the mms settings such as apn name, proxy etc can be set there.

so the instructions are: go into the diagnostics app, press "apn settings", swipe to the right and fill in your desired settings.
