Windows Phone 7.8 bumped up to address battery drain and live tile issues (presumed)

I just got a note on my Samsung Omnia W that an update is available. Just a few weeks ago, Samsung Omnia W received the much awaited (and delayed) Windows Phone 7.8 update. However, there were niggling issues such as battery drain, slow app-opening upon clicking on the tile, and failed ‘live-tile updates’.

There are two updates:

  1. OS version 7.10.8860.142
  2. OS version 7.10.8862.144

WP7.8 8860 update 1

WP7.8 8862 update 2

Though I couldn’t find any useful information on what issues these updates address, I can only assume that the aforementioned ones are taken care of. I’ll update this post after reviewing the performance of my phone over the next couple of days.

Note: The Nokia 610 Windows Phone just got an update note while I’m writing this post. So, Nokia users, update via Zune and have fun!
