Windows Phone 7.8 update causing volume problems with the Nokia Lumia 800?

0. phoneArena posted on 04 Feb 2013, 09:09

Some owners of the Nokia Lumia 800 are complaining that after the Windows Phone 7.8 update, their phone has lost about half of its volume strength and music that used to be comfortable at a volume reading of 15, now has to be cranked up to 30 to hear; reflashing Windows Phone 7.5 eliminates the problem confirming this to be an issue with the software...

Why can't every platform make a perfect update without any bug? Sigh...

Like someone wise said "No software is bug free" software is software, trying to patch up a bug sometimes might create another bug, an upgrade is sure to bring bugs and there are a lot of variables that affect the software too. That kind of comment only shows that everything must be perfect in your own little world.

Are you trying to tell me that iOS is not perfect?

Would never have had this problem if people just upgraded to the Lumia 920. It's better i every single way and is pretty easy on the wallet. I was happy with it.

Because everyone can afford a brand new phone worth about $500.

Thank God and I thought I was the only one!!! I updated my lumia 800 and I can barely hear it while commuting!! I was getting very frustrated!! Till now i could hear the songs clearly at 21-22, but now even 30 isn't enough. Nokia please release a fix to this problem.!

I knew something was wrong!
After the update the keyboard sound is just too low, I barely can hear in a silent place! Before it was pretty audible
Not a big deal but now with this report make total sense!

tired of microsoft and lumia treating us like crap. updates havn't rolled in my region still. most users in US pay cheaper for any given mobile than other regions, still we're the last to get a damn update. this is the first and the last phone I'll ever buy from nokia or microsoft.

Question for the ppl that are having the issue- Did you do a hard reset after the update? I unofficially pushed the update to my unlocked, unbranded Samsung focus S & after that some stuff didn't want to work but after I did a hard reset things work perfectly. All I'm saying is that the MS update works fine if there is a bug it's coming from what Nokia added.

Love the Windows Phone update, but i payed for my phone to have a premium portable music player. It had that, now i cant listen to anything from my premium payed for Spotify Account when i am on the train or on the bus.

Like this if you feel the same way so that Nokia have a better chance at seeing this.
