Problems with the the Nokia Lumia 800 for early adopters

Ah, problems! We detest problems! The Nokia Lumia 800 has been marketed more than anything else, with an upcoming 4D promotion in London, but as it's early days, some issues are to be expected. The handset has been anticipated for months now since it was unveiled earlier this year. We've had some threads being created on our Windows Phone forum regarding battery life, touch calibration, sound issues, loose buttons and more.

I've personally witnessed some of the problems being reported by consumers, especially calibration and sound issues. For sound; when using headphones (or a speaker system) with the Lumia 800, I'll hear a burst of white noise when a track ends and before a track begins. As well as our forums, the official Nokia support forum is being bombarded with questions surrounding problems users are having.

Are you an early adopter of Nokia's first Windows Phone? If so, have you noticed any issues with the handset? On a positive note, the amount of reports being published could signal how many handsets have been sold. Head on over to our forum and join in the conversation should you be having trouble with the 800.

Thanks Nick for the links and roundup!
