Updated: Top 9 problems of Infinix Hot 2 and their solutions

The Infinix Hot 2 is one of the most impressive budget android smartphones we’ve seen in Nigeria for the year 2015. Why so? The phone is an Android One device. Looking at the spec vs price angle, there are few devices that come close. After going through various complaints from people and threads in Nairaland, I’ve decided to compile the most common problems of Infinix Hot 2 and proffer solutions for them.

Before we proceed, Here are things you should know:

  • The Infinix Hot 2 runs stock Android. This is very different from what you see on the regular android smartphones you’ve used or seen before. This phone runs raw Android – just the way founding fathers made it to be – without any extra customization. You should have this at the back of your mind.
  • You need to set up your Gmail account before using this phone. You can’t do much on this phone if you don’t do that immediately after purchase. Simply login (if you already have an account) or create a new one.

Now back to the common problems and their solutions.

Common problems of Infinix Hot 2 and their solutions

Problem 1: I can’t see a file manger

One of the problems of Infinix Hot 2 is that of users not being able to see a file manager. After signing in with your Gmail account, the first thing you need to do is run to Google Play Store, and download a file manager. Es File Explorer is highly recommended.

Problem 2: I can’t use a custom song as ringtone

When you notice you can’t set a song as ringtone, then next thing is, use your ES File Explorer, navigate to the song you want, and set that as your ringtone.

Problem 3: I can’t find any gallery

The Infinix Hot 2 actually has a gallery app called Google Photos. Though, I’ll admit, the app looks weird and different from what we’re used to. To fix the problem, run along to Google Play Store and download Quick Pic. It is a lightweight and fast gallery app. Highly recommended.

Problem 4: I can’t play videos

If you can’t find a good video player on your phone, again Quick Pic is decent. For a more rounded experience, go ahead to Google Play Store and download MX Player.

Problem 5: The phone doesn’t have HSDPA

So because the phone shows 3G on the network signal bar (instead of H+), you people have concluded the phone doesn’t have HSDPA. If you dig around Setting -> About section, you’ll clearly see where it is shown. The phone has HSDPA. However, if you need to be able to see it reflected as an icon in the status bar, you can still go farther, by rooting, install Xposed Framework and Gravity Box, then set it up to write H+ on the status bar.

Update: 22/11/2015

Problem 6: My launcher suddenly changed to vertical scrolling

If you notice that the launcher suddenly changed to vertical scrolling, don’t be afraid. What really happened is that you updated it. The latest update to Google Now launcher changed it from horizontal to vertical scrolling of the app drawer. So if you don’t like it, go to Google Play Store, and download Nova launcher HERE, then customize it as you please.

IMPORTANT NOTICE!!

  1. Most of the problems you experience with this phone is because you’re on a Guest Account. Yes. During initial setup most of us mistakenly put ourselves in guest account. This means the phone sees you as a guest. Hence, it restricts your use of the phone. Please make sure you are not on a guest account, if you’re on it, reset your phone to factory settings.
  2. PLEASE DO NOT ROOT THIS PHONE!! If you do, updating becomes and issue. How to resolve the problem is explained on this article here.

Update: 30/11/2015

Problem 7: I can no longer see my 2nd SIM as option when I want to make a call

When on the Phone menu, go to Options (it’s a 3-dot menu) on the top right hand of the screen. Select Settings > Calling accounts > When Call Ask First.

From there, you can set it to show both SIM cards.

Update: 29/11/2016

Problem 8: After upgrading to Marshmallow, All my saved Contacts now show just numbers

If your Call log is not showing contacts;

  • Go to Settings> Accounts>Google>
  • Click the 3-dot menu on the top right hand side and,
  • Remove the account.
  • After a while you add it back by logging in again to your Gmail, it will be fixed.

Problem 9: After upgrading to Marshmallow, I can’t access my Memory Card, and my PC no longer recognize my phone

Google has changed the way memory cards work on Android 6.0 I explained everything HERE. You have to format your SD card with the phone before your files can show on it. Please ignore the message that tells you to setup your SD card.

To access your phone through PC, plug in your phone, when it’s charging, Open your phone and swipe down the notification bar (you will notice the default is “Charging Only”), change it to MTP or USB storage, and it will show.

  1. “So because the phone shows 3G on the network signal bar (instead of H+), you people have concluded the phone doesn’t have HSDPA.”

    ROTFLOL, I don’t think there will be another sentence on Mobility Arena that will top this for me this month.

    I can only presume no one bothered to read the specs for the phone, just heard “Android One” and got all excited ?

  2. Seems to me the phone comes with half baked features,in this day and age how a smartphone can come without a File Manager installed is rather baffling to me,it’s a fundamental part of a Smartphone experience and I expect to see it in any device no matter how low ranged..

    1. “Stock Android” simply means without the bloatware or apps of any other party.

      Clean slate, start from the bottom and install your own. Why should any Explorer app be pre-installed when it may not be what you want?

    2. quite a few phones ship without File Managers. I’ve had flagship HTC & SONY devices that didn’t have bundled File Managers. it’s a very minor annoyance, since many (most?) people don’t use the bundled File Manager anyway

    3. You such a newbie! Infinix HOT 2 is an android one phone. Which means that priority is given to Google service. Nothing related with range of product.

    4. Immediately I bought mine, an update was downloaded and immediately I installed it, I saw a file manager. So my hot2 has a file manager.

  3. Many people do not know that STOCK Android does not come with a file manager. Google believes you don’t manually need to manage files, so they just put Downloads, Photos, and Videos apps. They don’t expect us (in theory) to go about downloading ROMs and zips and all those weird files.

  4. This Hot2 is just a skeletal framework then. I fear that all these modifications might end up bricking the phone…..or if not handled well.

    1. baseless assumption, phone has 16 GB ROM. many devices with 16 GB ROM come with tens and maybe hundreds of MB of bloatware

    2. And bloatware doesn’t take up unnecessary space on a device? I would rather install my own choice of apps than have to suffer with those that come with the phone which I never wanted and can’t uninstall.

    3. of course bloatware takes up space on the device, whether or not it’s unnecessary space depends on the user. my point is/was the apps weren’t left out to create an illusion of more available memory as Femiblaze suggested

  5. complaints of an average user. so it’s a crime not to pre-install bloatware. simple pressing of phone will prevent all this naivity

    1. what do you mean by “play custom song”?
      if your device’s default music player can’t play a particular file format (usually wma), try a premium 3rd party music player. don’t see how ES File Explorer comes into the picture

  6. please my infinix hot phone as been bringing out “unfortunately the measure has stop working”, unfortunately adobe air has stop working” please what can I do to stop it because it is disturbing.

  7. Pls, my Hot2 Androidone is too slow for browsing despite d fact that Glo 3G is effective in my area. What can I do to increase its speed?

  8. Please I can’t have access to my phone storage. Also I can’t decide where to store files either on memory card or phone storage

  9. Not been able to play videos.. Downloaded vlc,MX player intact all d players I cld lay my hands on but it stl keeps writing “can’t open this file/unable to play..pls any one wit suggestions shld kindly help plss ds is rily frustrating.. Pls

    1. Wow, this is interesting. Are you sure the video files are not corrupted? Meanwhile, try moving one of the videos to the phone’s internal storage, let’s see if the error persists.

    1. Elrox, please I can’t access my phone storage and there is an option for it. What do I do? My memory card is full and there is not an option for use of phone memory.

    2. Wow!! Have you tried installing a file explorer app like FX Explorer or ES File Explorer? Can you access the phone’s internal storage?

    3. Same problem here, seems it’s taken off my pictures. Theres memory but keep saying mount s.d card. O ti su mi. Can’t use d camera ATM. 1 month after????????????

  10. Even with es file manager Please my hot 2 cant use prefered music as ringtone it keeps on saying “set fail” please what can i do about ut please.?

    1. That’s a new one. try moving the song to your internal storage or memory card, and try it again

  11. Hi my play store keeps saying enable background data I can’t seem to download any app! Very annoying, what can I do I have restarted , removed battery and memory card etc

    1. Hello sms9ja, check if auto sync is enabled. Or you restore the phone to factory settings. Go to Settings>>Backup & Reset

    1. I can’t believe this, the spec for infinix hot 2 says it has 16gb ROM but after buying, charging and turning it on, I discovered the internal memory is just 11.68GB. Very disappointed

      Daniel,

      That disparity in the figures is normal and happens with ALL smartphones in which certain apps are pre-installed. The “missing” space is space used up by pre-installed apps from the manufacturer.

  19. I can’t have access to my phone storage infinix office here I come.But at the main time I need help.Any tip will be helpful, the only app that was able to tap into my local SD was Vidmate ,apart from that nothing else.

  20. my problem with y infinix hot2 is that i switched it off, tried changing sim card, although i have a macafee security and it ask for ma password on switching it on, n ever since ma phone as not load to desktop /background wot do i do nw, also i want to know how to reset infinix hot 2 to factory reset without switching the device/phone on

  25. please how do i set Infinix x510 to recovery mode. i tried volume down plus power at the same time and after android upgrading menu came it still coudnt reset.

  28. Hello.I just got Infinix Hot 2 & I have a problem with the SIM call settings. Under SIM card settings, I’m supposed to see an option of ‘Always Ask’. This tells the phone to always ask on what SIM I want to call from. But on my own phone, that option doesn’t come up & I can only set a preferred SIM for calls & SMS. Whenever I want to make calls from a specific SIM, I have to keep going to the SIM settings to select the particular SIM as the ‘preferred SIM’. Please help out.

    1. To enable the “Always Ask”, on the Screen, you will see a Phone icon, click on it, it takes you to your calls and stuff, on the top right had of the screen , you will see a 3-dot drop down menu, click on settings, calling accounts and change to Always Ask. Thank me later

  53. hello. I have tried changing the “always ask first” settings for calls but it changes back to single SIM almost immediately. How do I permanently fix this? Its frustrating. Also, u keep suggesting reset phone, for how Long will one keep resetting? Ko easy now. After all the downloads and stuff.

    1. It’s easy, I had the same prob when I bought it 4months ago, click on the Call (blue) icon on ur screen ~ it will take you to a screen (speed dial / Recent/ contact) ~ press on the menu button (3 dots) on the top right corner of the screen ~ press settings ~ press on call accounts ~ make calls with ~ press ~ always ask.

  54. Many people have same problem like yours. I will advise you update the phone. New ones are even coming without the option of ‘ask which sim every time’ but after updating it works fine. Hope this resolve the problem.

  55. please i can’t delete files from the phone, it keeps on saying ” no permission to delete” when it happens like that, i cant take pictures, videos or save anything unless i turn the phone off and back on before it works and with that its just for a little while then it starts again. my pictures are getting missing and music can’t play well. it all started after my first updating the phone?

  56. Hello,i rooted my infinix hot 2 so will factory reset from recovery mode clear off the root cos I’m having trouble with updates…I’ve unrooted the phone BTW but still got updates problem

  57. For those of us still having problems with missing pictures and music player not playing, or camera saying ‘insert SD card’ while there is enough space in the internal storage, kindly delete ur guest account and other user accounts leaving only the “owner” account and reboot. You can reboot by powering off the phone, then hold the power button and the volume down button simultaneously, the fone will boot to factory settings there you will see Reboot. That’s all.

  58. I discovered that my infinix hot 2 camera and photos are not responding. If I on the camera is showing SD card disable.

I TRIED TO CREATE A NEW ONE BUT AM FINDING IT DIFFICULT. PLEASE ANY HELP? THIS IS HOW IT READS: ”THIS DEVICE WAS RESET. TO CONTINUE, SIGN IN WITH A GOOGLE ACCOUNT THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY SYNCED ON THIS DEVICE”.

  80. PlPleasChris, try to remember the email used before resetting the phone, cos only that can work with it, I guess you are using hot spot or WiFi Internet. Use another phone to retrieve your password if forgotten.

  81. Help, my phone keeps displaying the following. Not an error (code 0) could not open database in read/write mode in my Quickpic. I can’t delete, use or send pictures or video’s. It says, due to the restrictions on your current system, quickpic is unable to modify your photos.

  82. I can’t copy any of my file from memory card to phone memory or delete any video that is in my phone memory.
    pls what should i do?

  83. Hello
    thanks for the review and replies.
    Quick 1
    Is there a way I could delete multiple contacts at once on my Infinix Hot 2? Been looking around and can’t find a way to do that.
    Have multiple contacts on my “phone contacts” & don’t wanna have to delete one after the other.

  84. Please my phone screen at times refuses to come up and though when switched on infinix shows after that, its a black out. Even when a call is coming in, it doesn’t shoe what do I do?

  85. Hi, i have a problem, i have 2500 contacts and when i transferred them from my old one to the Infinix it started hanging. Any advise on where and how i should should store them to avoid the hanging issue?

  86. Good morning,
    why were all these guide lines not written in the manual. The manual is so empty. I have problems with my phone pictures because i can’t view them. Am always told that it can’t generate thumbnail. My audio, video, recorder, músic are having problems too. Pictures look so small and the images blurred, i can’t view media files from my WhatsApp twice because if I do it will be empty yet the picture is Still in the person’s profile and I cant save from WhatsApp profile because when I view it once and want to save to my gallery it will be Blank and i will be told that media cannot send file. Recording is bar too because it will not display what you have recorded. It spoils my journalistic work. Thanks

  87. I really had high hopes in INfinix, but it has been A HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT, My phone reboots more than 10 times a day and fails to detect sim card..I can open my sms inbox an wait for more than 30 mins (Loading conversation).

  114. Hello, in my case, my internal storage disappeared plus photos app lost access to all data like videos,pictures, documents etc, file manager displayed 0bytes. For the time being, I just added another user, logged on that other user with my Google account and installed a few apps afresh, everything was back to normal at least the camera is now not demanding and card, photos is working, file manager working also, but you may have some few challenges on CALLING PRIVILEGES which you can just set to allow other users using the Owner Account, otherwise you may have to be switching between Accounts Everytime you want to use the USB connection, am still working on how to get my Owners Account back and working without a Factory reset. By the way, am new to phones technology so I ask, does factory reset uninstall all my Apps? As for now I can access everything, view, record, and even save on PC from internal Storage using the other Account, so I can back it up elsewhere..

  115. Well, the Infinix hot2 that had disabled sd card, not detected on USB even though I have selected MTP, camera was asking for sd card, WhatsApp messenger could not share pictures, file manager was reading zero data, the photos App was also reading zero pics, videos etc, I followed the above procedure and got back all the functions and data. I began by deleting the extra user I had added, then I logged in to the guest user, didn’t sign in to any Google account, went to users, guest, remove guest, then the phone automatically comes back to owner screen, I press power button, shuts down, then hold power button together with the volume up (+) button for some 10 or so seconds as it powers up, the four small coloured dots revolving, then leave it, it will first bring an interface saying that Android Starting…. and at the bottom it says Optimising App 1 of 120 or so. My phone is on Android 5.1.1 well, this process runs for some 5minutes then it will bring up the normal welcome screen and you’re back! I suspect my problem began after I connected my phone to a Windows Xp computer at a cyber cafe where I suspect some malware got in. I realized I was in trouble when I switched it off and on, that is when trouble started, but now it’s back to normal and good as new with the incredible ES File Explorer.
