For the case of your Infinix phone displaying “Unfortunately Xlauncher has stopped“, it is a normal malfunction (bugs) from your Xlauncher. You don’t need to panic much whenever you see such message on your device screen, it happens in most apps.
Why does the message, Unfortunately Xlauncher has stopped, shows?
Just like I have mentioned, it can be a bug, insufficient operations to handle requests from installed apps or too many cached data on the launcher.
Insufficient operations to handle requests from installed apps?
This happens mostly especially when the launcher is still in test mode or its beta version. Here, the launcher is bound to experience malfunctions as a result of not being equipped with maximum response. The only solution here is update.
Too many stored data on the launcher?
This could be referred to as data overload. Stored data include settings, data, configurations and sometimes cached files.
Remember that Android launcher handles the interactivity in your device screen – Desktop, app drawers, widgets, folders and more.
The more your interactivity with the launcher, the more data it stores to itself. Some people will recommend that one should clear data and cache.
