    My phone shows fast boot mode when it is shut down and I’m unable to open it what should I do

  2. sunday says:

    Comment: when ever am operating my phone for about 1minutes it get hot

    • Conrad Reagan Musiime says:

      Too many running apps; Click on the square button/icon (for android) and clear recent apps…then restart the phone.
      Sometimes, because we’re using VPN and internet, pausing (switching these off) for some 10 -15 minutes and then resuming (switching these on again) is prudent.

  3. Ugolo ogaga says:

    I wish I could just have my money back,it get hot easily,the battery get low easily too.
    The phone was a scam,I don’t trust tecno product anymore


    Hi there! Am using TECNO F1 and my phone battery cannot last longer

    • Conrad Reagan Musiime says:

      Hey ya,
      You’ll need to adopt a better charge-use routine. I have the same phone, and I can use my phone for at least 8 hours without charging again.

      1. Avoid charging it through the night. A phone doesn’t even have to charge up to 100%
      2. Avoid a total (0%) black out. At less than 10%, it is highly advised, you put it off and charge it, (without the temptation from incoming notifications) and you can switch it back on when it’s at 30% at least.
      3. Minimise using it when it’s charging. Results will come over time; (say 2 weeks) and if you feel you’ve been so misbehaved in the past…Replace it with a new battery at about $5 from a trusted store, and then treat it right.
