The first Nokia Lumia 800 firmware update has just started to roll out today and is the v. 1600.2479.7740.11451 has I have told you last week. This one includes the following fixes:
- Charging improvements
- Voicemail notification improvement
- Replying to mail improved for Microsoft Exchange 2003 users
- Improved display switching in bright light
- Improved audio quality
Only one of my Lumia 800 got it because it apparently requires the 7440.16 build of the OS to be already on the handset. So if your Lumia 800 is still running the 7420 build of Mango you’ll have to wait a little bit before receiving the update notification. A second firmware update which will further improve the battery and hopefully the camera is planned for January.
UPDATE: The Camera software has been updated too as there is now a Flicker Reduction option in there as you can see in the picture below. The screen over-sensitivity seems to also have been fixed (
needs more testing to confirm it’s unfortunately not fixed yet). The auto-focus issue in camcorder mode seems to also be fixed ( will need more testing too nope seems to be the same as before) I’ll check out the camera quality later on and report back here.
UPDATE 2: The phone no longer display its battery status and only shows a question mark instead…not good..will try to run the thing down and see if it recalibrates itself afterwards.
