Nokia seems set to make sure that its Nokia Lumia 800 users receive the best possible experience there is, and plans on delivering a series of software updates to them to make sure that this indeed happens.

Two of these updates will be targeted at bringing some improvements to the battery life the handset enjoys at the moment, the phone maker confirmed recently.

Apparently, some users have started to complain about battery issues with the mobile phone soon after the device hit shelves, and Nokia already kicked off an investigation on the matter.

The company acknowledges that some users might not be as happy with the battery life of the new device as they should be, and says that a fix for this will arrive soon.

There will be two software updates delivered to Nokia Lumia 800, both of which are targeted at improving the performance of its battery.

Specifically, the 1450mAh battery inside Lumia 800 is expected to start operating at full capacity as soon as the new updates have been installed on the device.

In a post on the Nokia Support Discussions, the company explains the following (via WMPoweruser):

We understand that some people have expressed concerns about battery life on the Nokia Lumia 800.

Early investigations show that most people are enjoying the full Nokia Lumia experience without any problems and we have not been able to identify a single root cause that would lead to erratic battery behavior at this stage.

A software update in early December will make some improvements to power efficiency, while a second update in early January introduces high voltage charging, increasing the Nokia Lumia 800’s battery power from 1300mAh to 1450mAh.

These are scheduled improvements and will enhance the overall experience, but are not designed to address any issues that may be occurring with individual products. We recommend that anyone who has concerns contact local Nokia care representatives at their earliest convenience.
