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.
You may go to Settings and deactivate Sleep mode. Then clean

If that is not the case, then follow this => Goto settings > Apps, tap on the settings icon and choose Draw over other apps. Now select recently installed apps one after the other and deselect the option to draw over other apps.
Internal Storage is not accessible via PC or USB cable
If your Infinix internal storage is not accessible via PC or USB cable, then it is either the driver is not correctly installed on your system or USB cable is charge only.
For the case of incorrectly installed driver, what you do is to update your ADB driver. You can do this either by installing PDANet, universal MTK driver or through Windows Device manager. Click here for PDANet or MTK universal driver. It is simple to install.
For Windows device manager, right click on This PC or My Computer as the may be and select Manage. On the dialog window, select Device Manager. Locate the USB driver marked unknown to find the correct match. You should know how to update Windows driver.
Battery drains too fast or takes longer to charge complete
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.
OTG does not work
if your OTG does not work, failed wifi and hotspot, Bluetooth not connecting or phone goes blank when making calls, phone crashes and tons of them – you simply update your firmware.
