The Nokia Lumia 800 is a great device and it fares well in reviews the world over. Nokia spent the better part of November in launching campaign after campaign to promote this device. These campaigns aim to cement Nokia's place as a top selling smartphone manufacturer. Though the handset has been overall quite successful, there have been some issues that have been affecting some of the handsets that were available to the masses. A number of Lumia 800 owners faced certain battery issues where the smartphones were not being able to access the full capacity of the battery. Nokia addressed this issue and in January released a software update. When this update was available to the masses, the battery issue appeared to be fixed but other issues arose which came in the form of an audio problem and a camera issue. In a blog post Nokia addressed this issue but there was no date revealed as to when the update would be available. As per a tweet by Nokia’s Damian Dinning, he states that some improvements were on the way.

In a related report by PhoneArena, “Last month, when Nokia stated that an update had repaired a problem that the phone was having with the battery, the Finnish based manufacturer admitted that there was an issue with the camera and that it would not be overlooked. Apparently the problems with the camera are a software issue which is why Nokia is hopeful that this update on the way will allow the camera to reach its full potential. Late last month, word started leaking out about problems that Nokia Lumia 800 users were having with settings to the camera.”

The Nokia Lumia 800 is presently the brand’s flagship handset but with the Lumia 900 set to be announced at the Mobile World Conference event in Barcelona later on this month, the Lumia 800 will have to share some of the spotlight with its big brother. Here’s hoping Nokia releases an update as soon as possible to fix these niggling issues.
