Infinix smartphones mid last year started creating buzz in Nigerian mobile market over products like Infinix Hot 4, Infinix Hot 4 Pro, Infinix Note, Infinix Note Pro, Infinix Zero 4 and Infinix Zero 4 Plus. They are great brands of smartphones if you ask me.

Fix Infinix Hot 4 Pro X556 problems.
When your Infinix Hot 4 or its Pro reboots constantly, what you do is to make sure that you have updated your firmware to its latest version.
When permission keeps saying screen overlay is turned on; it is either that you have installed a battery saver, energy saver or screen filter. It is not basically a fault from Infinix.

If your battery drains too fast or takes longer to charge complete, it is either you change charger or discharge your battery manually. To discharge your battery, open the back cover. Remember that it is non-removable battery.
What you do now is to take off the clip holding the battery to the internal case. Leave it for about 2 minutes and put it back. Please, if you had no idea about this, meet a phone technician.
