You can check for your self if you have received the update by clicking on the System Update app in your app drawer. Now for those who don’t like to wait (like me) can manually update Hot Note and Hot Note Pro as well. In this post I will provide step by step instructions to update Hot Note. (Do not worry it is not that hard). NOTE: Anybody who uses this method and something goes wrong with their device, Talk Android Phones will not be held responsible in any way. If your device gets bricked, you must have messed up the steps. Also if you have rooted your device, Un-root it first. Well if you have read the above notice carefully then you are good to go.

STEP 1: Download the ROM First things first, you need to download the official Android 5.1 Lollipop update from Infinix’s website the link is give below: Infinix Hot Note 16GB with 1GB RAM Infinix Hot Note 16GB with 2GB RAM   STEP 2: Setting up your Computer Now, things get a bit tricky! You will require all of the below files in order to make this work properly! Download SP Flash Tool : Download the latest version from this link and extract the zip file in your computer. Download MediaTek VCOM Tools: Go to this link and follow the instructions given. Make sure you disable signature verification first before installing this driver. For added help here is one more link. After both the above steps are completed you need to open Flash_Tool.exe (found in the SP Flash Tool folder). Click on Scatter Loading Look for a text file from the ROM you had downloaded called “MT6592_Android_scatter.txt” Wait for the SP Flash tool to compile its own stuff. Select Firmware Upgrade option You can see the images below to know where “Scatter Loading” and “Firmware Upgrade” can be found.

With Internet penetration growing rapidly and the desire to purchase on the Internet increasing, we hope this initiative will bring more awareness and adoption of e-commerce in Pakistan.” She added: “The majority of digital consumers in Pakistan are already researching online to decide which device to purchase, and for the most part they find online resources more relevant and credible to their purchase journey;” said Tania, “Tech Mela is an initiative to complete the research and purchase loop, and we hope the exclusive deals will spur greater acceptance of e-commerce among even more Pakistanis.”  According to TNS Research, there are 30 million online users in Pakistan, half of whom are using mobile for the purpose.

Unveiling the Slimmer, Lighter and Tougher Infinix Zero 2

Unveiling the Slimmer, Lighter and Tougher Infinix Zero 2

So folks, the Infinix Zero 2 has finally launched in Pakistan. We already gave you a sneak peak of the Zero 2 device and our first impression but now its time to remove the curtains. The Infinix Zero 2 is built keeping in mind 3 things, a slim design, a lighter body and a tough shell. Display and Design   The Infinix Zero 2 comes with a 5 inch Samsung Super AMOLED HD display (1280×720), which shows vibrant colors with very less picture saturation. The contrast ratio is 30000:1 which you can actually tell when watching HD videos. The display is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for extra protection. The dimensions of the body are pretty slim (145*71.5*6.5 mm) and weighing just 118 grams, fits in the palm of your hand very well. The back of the device is its main attraction, the Zero 2 comes with a non-removable Kevlar back panel. According to the Infinix team, the material is 5 times stronger and lighter than steel, making the device pretty solid.  As the back panel does not open, the dual sim card tray is on the side of the device. While the other side houses the power button, volume buttons and microSD card tray slot. Under the Hood   The Infinix Zero 2 is no slouch when it comes to performance and power, this is due to the Media Tek 6592T 2.0 GHz Octa – Core processor with Mali 450 700 MHz GPU and 2GB DDR3 RAM. The specs seems capable enough to run even the most graphic hungry games. (Will test it out for our selves a bit later). On the memory front the device has 32GB of internal memory which has now become a standard in flagship devices. The device also houses a microSD card slot which supports up to 32GB. So, lots of memory there, which is a good thing, considering how good the cameras on the device are. Camera   The device houses a 13 Megapixel Samsung S5K3M2 CMOS sensor with f/2.0. This means the lens can take in 18% more light in, when taking pictures in dark places. Another impressive feature is the auto focus time. It is only 0.5 seconds, so the chances of a blurry image go down quite a bit.  The front of the device lies a 5 Megapixel 85 degrees wide angle camera, which when we tested was quite impressive. There are some fun features as well, one being if you think taking pictures by pressing a button or touching the screen is too main stream, then just wave or shout at the camera and it will take the picture. Cool right? Software...
