New Nokia Lumia 800 Firmware “Triples” Battery Life, Fixes List Of Other Bugs.

As seemingly perfect as the Lumia 800 appears, there are some bugs that have made it quite a bear for some users. One issue in particular (for some) has been battery drain, more specifically a lot of battery drain. But a new ROM/firmware version (1600.2487.8107.12070) that has popped up over at XDA goes a long way to making the Lumia 800 a much better device. For starers, XDA members as well as some people over at WP Central have seen their battery life increase 3x! Other important fixes include correcting a bug where audible bass was sorely lacking via the 3.5mm headphone jack, fixing an issue related to screen backlighting and the 800′s capacitive buttons as well as tweaking the camera’s white balance.

Also included in this latest build are strings for new, unannounced camera functionality labeled ‘smart group shot, action shot, panorama and self time”.

For now the update is Singapore-only, though should begin hitting other territories this week. Let us know how it goes if you decide to take matters into your own hands.
