Infinix S2 Pro Starts Receiving Android 7 Nougat update

If you could recall, i said earlier that Infinix Mobility will surely release Nougat update for the Infinix s2 Pro; and now, it's here. Infinix S2 Pro that came running on Android 6 Marshmallow has started receiving Android 7 Nougat update.

If you are an S2 Pro user, you should get the update notification via OTA. The new software update is available via OTA (over the air), and it weighs in at around 1.8GB in size. You probably need to connect to a fast Wi-Fi network and also charge your battery to at least 80% before proceeding with the software update.

Besides the benefits of Nougat, this software update brings other optimisations to the Infinix S2 Pro as well as fixes for minor bugs.

Now that Nougat OS is available for the Infinix S2 Pro, i guess you should go get your own S2 Pro now, if Nougat was the reason you didn't bother buying the phone when it was newly launched.

If you feel impatient, or can't wait for the update to arrive on your S2 Pro via OTA notification, then you should check for the update manually by heading over to your Handset's Settings menu > About Phone > System update.

Infinix S2 - Phone Specifications and Price

After releasing Infinix S2 Pro weeks ago, Infinix Mobility has yet launched the smaller variant called Infinix S2. They shared almost the same specifications and features. They are just the successors of the Infinix Hot S.

Infinix Hot S2 is a 4G LTE enabled smartphone with a 5.2-inch display. A key selling point are the dual selfie cameras. This setup won’t produce Bokeh effects though, but rather wide angle selfies. I still don't know why Infinix Mobility preloaded this phone with Android 6 Marshmallow out of the box. They should have preloaded it with Android Nougat instead.

Hopefully, Infinix Mobility will provide a Nougat update soon. Do not forget that the S2 has a more capable sibling – the Infinix S2 Pro. Have a look at the full Infinix S2 specifications below.

ZTE to Build Airtel Nigeria's 4G LTE Network

Airtel has officially announced a plan to partner with Chinese firm, ZTE, to build their own 4G LTE network in Nigeria. If you have been waiting patiently for Airtel to launch their own 4G LTE network, then wait a bit, as Airtel is partnering with ZTE company to launch their 4G LTE service.

Airtel became the first telecoms operator in the country to complete a successful 4G trial in Lagos, yet is the last to deploy. Last year, 2016, other big competitors like MTN, Glo and Etisalat launched their own 4G LTE network, leaving people wondering what Airtel is waiting for to launch their own 4G LTE service.

Before now, we have existing 4G LTE providers in Nigeria which includes but not limited to Ntel, MTN, GLO, Etisalat, InterC, Smile, Spectranet and Swift. As we all know, 4G LTE is a global mobile standard that delivers broadband internet to supported smartphones, tablets, USB modems and MiFi devices.

For now, there's no official date of how long the building of their 4G LTE network will take. Atleast, we should have it in mind that Airtel 4G LTE is on the way coming, even if it's not coming soon.

How to Take Screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S8 Device

I know you will be wondering why I'm coming up with this article - right? Ofcourse, there shouldn't be any post regarding how to take screenshots on Android phones, because even a new born baby can actually do that without you teaching him or her. But Samsung Galaxy S8 now has a different step for taking screenshots on the phone. That's what i will be teaching you now.

Before now, by just pressing the home and power buttons at the same time on later Samsung Galaxy devices will allow you to capture the screen, but Galaxy S8 has got another way to capture the screen.

To take a screenshot on Samsung Galaxy S8 device, you have to press the Power + Volume Down buttons to do that. This probably makes switching from most Android devices easier, but someone transitioning from the S7 (or earlier) might be a bit confused.

If pressing physical buttons is too much work, you can always hold down on the home button to open Google Assistant, and press the 'Share Screenshot' button. The S8 also allows you to take a screenshot by swiping the edge of your hand across the screen (while still keeping it on the screen). Plenty of options for your screenshot-taking needs.

Once you actually capture it, the S8 has a neat feature you can use called Scroll capture. Like several browser extensions, this scrolls down whatever content you are viewing and adds more to the screenshot.

How i wish stock Android phones has this feature. I hope to see Android phones in the future adopts this feature too.

There are times you would want to use/operate two social accounts on your Android phone, but it seems impossible, because you need to sign out one account for the other. Though, Twitter and Instagram Apps has this feature to login two different accounts at the same time on the app, but other Apps like Facebook, BBM, Whatsapp etc are yet to integrate this feature.

Today, i will be teaching you how to run multiple social accounts on one phone without the need to root your Android device. There are other free apps on Google Playstore which offers same job, like Parallel. It helps you run two Whatsapp accounts on one phone, two Facebook accounts, two BBM accounts on one phone, etc.

I will be introducing you to a new App that does same job as Parallel.
