Its a great phone but also a shame considering the battery. Nokia said its the true windows phone and on top of that they have exclusive partner deal with microsoft, then how come they have miss out the battery issue like this?
Just hope it will be trully be fixed with the upcoming update.

Is this to infer all the battery issues, amung others, suggest the iPhone is not worthy of owning? After every release of an iPhone there seems to always be some type of major issue. I don't hate any particular phone or OS maker, but I am a Windows fan and just like any other phone maker there are sometime issues when a new phone comes to market. But as with you, hopefully the battery issue is fixed sooner than later.

@Phonearena ... If you don't like this phone please ignore it .. But why are you always writing a fully negative article on it ?

Why all the hate? As far as I know everybody likes the phone it sells good and only one analysis told that its selling bad ... so that means he is right?

Its obvious to me(and others, it would seem)that phone arena just does not like Nokia products. That being the case, phone arena, why report on Nokia at all? You write about poor battery life on the Lumia as if it's exclusive to Nokia-Windows handsets and not prevalent in a slew of Android handsets as well as the iPhone. Please, phone arena, at least TRY to be objective in your reporting and show a little more integrity in what you do.

I get so excited about seeing an article about the lumia 800 because I think it's definitely a seller, a solid device, and wp7 is so so smooth and buttery....but then phone arena has 6456715 articles about negativity...all based on PREDICTIONS! write on facts please dont encourage the predictions! If you write about just bad things on a great product that sold out then you are a true hater. Im sorry nokias phone isn't called iPhone you biased #$% hole

Common guys!!! The iphone 4s had battery issues and i read about it on phones Arena, along with a whole bunch of android phones in the past. Why not Nokia then?! Apparently you guys really want Nokia and Microsoft to do well and its understandable but to say Phonearena should overlook the battery issue here will be injustice to the end user which include other people looking to buy capable smart phones.
Nokia haven't been great on their recent smart phones of late and it may probably be reason why Phonearena isn't particularly kind to the brand but the lumia looks like the real deal but I'd let phonearena do what they will do though.

Whether Nokia has recently put out a decent product or not(and they have)is not the point. Phone arena should only be reporting on the facts OBJECTIVELY. Personal opinion plays no part in objective reporting.

Yeah they are entitled to comment about the battery...NOT 4 articles about it though. That shows their intentions

yeah means even if there is a tiny problem with a nokia or a samsung handset, they go gaga about it for days. on the other hand they will always try to save apple. it seems like apple fund this website because its always biased towards anything non-apple.
