I’m a Windows Phone kind of guy, and so I was expecting to like my new Nokia Lumia 800. But I wasn’t expecting to like it quite as much as I do. There have been some mutterings about battery life on the device, and I must admit that the first few charges didn’t last as long as I would have liked. However, I followed the instructions on one blog post and turned off the “Notify me when new networks are found” option for WiFi.
I’m not sure whether this has reduced power consumption or whether the Nokia has just got used to the battery and learnt more about how much charge/discharge it can take. Either way I’m getting better battery life than I used to get with the Samsung Omnia 7 and a lovely user experience. And Kinectimals is a really cute game.
I’ve ordered up some of the multi-coloured cases (Red and Blue look good to me) as I’ve always fancied having a bright coloured phone. Not sure about the green though.
