Windows Phone 7.8 update causing volume problems with the Nokia Lumia 800?
Owners of the Nokia Lumia 800 were happy to have received the Windows Phone 7.8 update. While it didn't have most of the new features of Windows Phone 8, the update brought the resizeable Live Tiles, the ability to use Bing wallpaper on the lock screen, and the twenty themes found on Windows Phone 8, to name a few. One thing that owners of the mid-ranger aren't too pleased about, is the apparent drop in volume strength that is being complained about on the Nokia Discussion Forums.

Music that was loud at the volume level of 15 prior to the update, now has to be cranked up to 30 to reach the same level of volume, according to complaints. Low music cannot be heard at all. And since reflashing Windows Phone 7.5 back on the affected handsets eliminates the volume problem, the issue is not with the phone itself, but with the update. 

The Nokia Lumia series has had problems with volume. The current flagship model and its mid-range brother, the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 respectively, have had issues with the volume being capped when loud music plays. This results in low volume for all sounds until the phone is rebooted.

Are any owners of the Nokia Lumia 800 discovering a problem with volume strength after the Windows Phone 7.8 update? Let us know by dropping a comment in the box below.
