Nokia Says Lumia 800 Battery Life Is Fixed, Promises Updates For Audio And Camera Quality
While Nokia’s first Windows Phone, the Lumia 800, has been critically acclaimed for its unique industrial design, it has had its fair share of issues regarding battery life and audio and camera quality. In a statement posted on its official support forums, Nokia says that the recent 1600.2483.8106.11500 update indeed fixes all problems related to battery life, according to internal testing.
For those that are still complaining, Nokia suggests that they should stop using the diagnostics tool that can be opened by dialing ##634#, since it was designed for testing purposes only and can show lower battery capacity even if the battery life isn’t negatively affected at all. Instead, the battery saver found in the system settings is said to provide “more useful information”.
Concerning audio and camera issues, those will be addressed in future updates – note the plural here. No dates were provided, though.

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience. With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
