Infinix Hot 2 users running on Android 6.0 has finally been heard and resolved by Google. Infinix is the first smartphone in Nigeria or Africa that runs android one. Android One phones are basically managed by Google especially when it comes to software updates. The Hot 2 was launched with Android 5.1 out of the box. It was very stable according to user reports. Well, after a while, Android 6.0 was packed and sent over the air as a major upgrade. It was widely received because everyone wanted to step up no matter what it takes. Some even resorted to a more pro like alternative of flashing the phone via recovery or sp flashtool. Android 6.0 on the Infinix Hot 2came with lots of irritating bugs like power button not responding when the phone sleeps, incoming and outgoing calls don’t display caller names, WhatsApp contacts don’t show names, memory card permission issues and lots more. Some people had to downgrade to the older android 5.1 just to ease up. Infinix Hot 2 Android 6.0 Bug fixed update is out. Its an over the air update. I personally received mine, downloaded and installed it. Its working very fine, bug free and so stable.
