GSM Arena’s Nokia Lumia 800 battery test.

| December 11, 2011 | 34 Replies


Here’s GSM Arena’s test on the battery life of the Nokia Lumia 800. It has an endurance rating of 35H. That’s 4hours shy from their results with the Nokia N9 so I guess that’s pretty good if that’s what they got (in terms of relative usage).

If you want to further extend your Lumia (or other Nokia handset, most of these work for most phones) you might want to check out the battery saving tips:

Also note that an update was made available this week, rolling out in availability over the next two weeks which has some “charging improvements”.


Seems to be a lot of complaints in both N9 and Lumia 800 (and other battery tests) from GSM Arena as all phones are asked to play xVid whilst iPhone is apparently tested against a more battery friendly .h264

They ask whether the update was there. I think in fairness, they test what was available at the time, so if Nokia couldn’t push the fix for battery at launch, well, tough luck Nokia. Hopefully Lumia 710 and 900 will fare better, though having said that, my battery life is fine on my Lumia. I get over a day at least and I always charge nightly.

One thing I have to query though is the endurance time they got with the N9. I think it might be much longer than what they got. I’m not sure if the battery indicator on my N9 is broken, it doesn’t seem to move (though not using it as much at the moment as Lumia as I don’t want to bring it out and break it whilst running around with errands this week)

Cheers AndreC for the tip!
