It's easy to assume that the key to stellar battery life lies in big fat batteries, but in the same way it's easy to forget that efficiency in software is also extremely important to longevity... something Nokia Lumia 800 users are now learning!

It's no secret that battery life on the Lumia 800 has been less than stellar since launch, however users are now reporting that the latest update deployed via the Zune software - version 12070 - marks a dramatic improvement, even TRIPLING battery life for some users as power drain when the device is in an idle state has more than halved. The update also brings tweaked white balance for the camera and improved bass response.

The software update is currently rolling out to users in Singapore but is expected to be available worldwide shortly.
