I upgraded my TECNO Camon C8 to Marshmallow

Posted by

After reading of the arrival of Android Marshmallow on the Camon C8, I decided to take the plunge and Upgrade my TECNO C8 OS to 6.0. No rooting or anything. Just direct from SDCARD.

Estimated time was said to be for 5 minutes once installation is completed and device reboots. It has taken 4 minutes.

Update completed. The UI feels alien. LOL. I am still trying to locate my stuff. Icons are “flatter” I need to read more about the OS (find out more about HiOS – Editor). And lastly, the device seems faster so far.

Here are some screenshots:
