Nokia has provided more information on the fixes that were taken care of in the first key software update made available for its Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phone 8 smartphones. The fixes include enhancement work done to address the issue of blurry images, especially when pictures are taken in sunlight.
There have been great dissatisfaction about the quality of images taken with the Nokia Lumia 920. Some users had complained that pictures taken during the day using its camera were often blurry. This problem is addressed in the firmware update that has just been released, with the promise of crispy clear images after getting it made by the company.
The software update, which is being rolled out together with Microsoft, will also hopefully deal with complaints about the battery life of these handsets. Nokia disclosed that this issue has also been tackled and users should expect to see significant improvement in battery life after getting the latest firmware update. In addition, it will now take less time to start up the phone than before. However, concerning the improvement in battery life that users can expect after getting the update, the company failed to give an idea of how long each full charge of the battery will last.
Also, some changes were made in the update to ensure a reliable and more efficient Bluetooth connectivity. Microsoft also introduced another feature into the phones’ Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system, which now has the ability to reject an incoming call with a pre-composed text message.
The software update, which is also expected to provide fixes for the problem being experienced with email synchronization as well as random restart bugs, is already available for downloading by Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 users in the United States and Canada. However, users in other countries will have to wait longer before they can get the update. Owners of these smartphones in Europe and some other countries will need to wait until February before they can receive the updating.
