The Infinix Hot 2 X510 has been so popular in the various African markets where its available. Its an AndroidOne, which means Google leads the way when it comes to updates and device improvements.
The Infinix Hot 2 has two variants, 1gb and 2gb ram. They both come with either the Infinix Stock Android Os(Android 5.1) and another with the Stock Android One ROM (Android 5.1, updated to 6.0)
The (Infinix ROM) has a nice filemanager, launcher, gallery, sound recorder, camera and other stuffs. Its just like a normal Infinix branded phone. The later(Android One) is purely stock android, without bloatware, clean OS, and comes with many stock Google apps. It comes with Google Photos which might not be everyone’s favorite gallery app.
The camera app here is Google Camera which doesnt contain alot of features compared to most camera apps. One thing I really dont like with the Google camera is that, when shooting videos, there’s no way you can pause the recording. I know you will agree with me that it’s not cool especially if you do video recordings with your phone.
In the AndroidOne rom, you also miss a dedicated gallery app and a sound recorder.
The one thing most people complain about after buying the phone is the stock Google Launcher. Its just too simple and less catchy.
Well lets stop talking about the problems or issues with the Infinix Hot 2 X510 but how to solve them.
