Fix: Disable Horizontal scroll on Blogger/WordPress mobile

Some blogs have nice responsive themes or templates but they are not 100% perfect till you do some tweaking and adjustments for it to look better.

If you notice that your blog pages are scrolling to left and right with a horizontal bar like the screen shots below:

This means the website isn't fully responsive, such horizontal scroll bar is not a nice user experience for your visitors especially those using Mobile browsers like Opera mini, Chrome, and other Android & iOS browsers. Horizontal scrolls will make scrolling difficult but I finally got a fix I used to put the pages in perfect position when scrolling.

Bug Reports on Infinix Hot 2 After Upgrading To Marshmallow. Do You Also Face these Issues?

It was a good news after we got an upgrade alert for Marshmallow on Infinix Hot 2 last week. This was Google's first Android One device to arrive Africa.
2 separate patches (updates) were rolled out, (for January and February) I got the latter via OTA which I spoke of on Facebook.

Finally it came by itself. #Marshmallow !!!Manual upgrade here => http://www.editweaks.com/2016/01/android-marshmallow-now-available-on-hot2.html
Posted by Ifediri on Friday, 22 January 2016


After applying the Marshmallow update and spending few days with it on the Infinix Hot 2, I experienced few absurd bugs.



Let's be sure we aint the only ones facing the problems below after updating the Infinix Hot 2 to Marshmallow:

Lost Contacts

Some Contacts vanished.
You know how important contacts are right? I don't know what exactly got affected, was it the SIM contacts or the phone's but after updating to Android M, I realised that my Contacts partially disappeared. Partially coz, they the names are still there but not showing.

A case when a person called me, it  was appearing like a New number, the caller had to re-introduce themself, after the call, when I tried to Re-save it I noticed the Contact name is still existing in the Phone, how come it didn't show their name when they called. I'm still re-saving some of those numbers even after Signing in to my Google account in the phone.


Some Files Were Gone

Some Files stored in my SD card got automatically Wiped out or corrupt (especially Music files saved as .m4a extension). The mp3's Stayed.

Photo and video files:

What happened with these was, after upgrading to Android M with WiFi, most of my Video and Photo files automatically performed a Cloud Back up, I can't recall if it was the option I choose at the Set up, they started to move to my Google Drive and they weren't showing till all of them backed up.
This consumes a lot of bandwidth and space in your Drive. So I later disabled the Gallery Cloud back by going to Photos >> Tap the Menu at the top Left >> Settings >> Back up and Sync >> OFF

Hot 2 is now Irresponsive

I wouldn't say the device had become slow,  it still operates fast as before. But there are certain Actions that device doesn't quickly respond to after I upgraded to Marshallow.

Sleep/Idle Mode
Another major issue, after the phone is on sleep mode, it takes few seconds to Turn on after you Press the Power button to wake it up.

Calls
This also affected my Calls as well, when I'm done talking and take the phone off my ear, the light sensors tell the screen to light up ASAP, but it takes extra seconds before it Lights up so I can hang up. Now, imagine Calling somebody with your Last credit, with this delay errors your credit will Burn completely before the phone lights up for you to Cut the call.


NEXT QUESTIONS NOW ARE:
Who cooked this half-done update? Google Android Devs? Or Infinix Dev Team?

How Soon Are we getting Updates that will Fix them?

While we await a response (if there'll be any), please tell us what other issues you're facing on your Hot 2 Android One device after upgrading to Marshmallow.

Huaptec Mobile Phone boosters: Stay Always Reachable

Are you familiar with this irritating situation, when a mobile phone receives network coverage only near the window or, even worse, you have to stay outside the house? Or when you pick up the signal and lose it with one step away? Cellular operators are constantly improving their network coverage, but in some areas its quality still leaves much to be desired.
If that is your case and you’re already considering moving to better covered area, give up this idea. All you need is a GSM, 3G or 4G mobile phone booster. Huaptec Corporation produces high-performance signal amplification systems and offers a wide range of models for various client requirements.
We had talked about a gadget you can use to improve your phone's signal in this post, this seems to be the better one.

What is a mobile repeater?

Mobile phone repeater is a hi-tech and easy-to-use device designed to amplify poor cellular signal. The system picks up strong signal from the mobile broadcasting station and spreads it all around the zone where you live or work.

Why we don’t have signal?

There’re different reasons for weak cell phone signal. Your house location can be at too long distance from the nearest broadcasting station or it has too many impediments for smooth signal reception, like thick walls, stairs, etc. Area terrain with mountains or hills can also prevent you from good coverage. Underground areas such as garages, parking lots, cellars, etc. are often inaccessible for mobile connection as well as heavily built up zones in busy city blocks.
For any of the above mentioned problems you will find Huaptec booster solution at www.huaptec.eu.

GSM repeaters

GSM repeaters improve voice service, EDGE and GPRS networks. Thanks to the device you’ll obtain uninterrupted calls and always clear conversations in any point of your area.
One of Huaptec GSM best sellers is HiBoost F10-GSM PRO model. The booster performs at 900 MHz frequency, which is main GSM standard all around Europe. The coverage area of HiBoost F10-GSM PRO is up to 500 sq.m., so you can use it in an apartment, house, office, etc.


3G repeaters

3G mobile repeater ensures easy access to 3G mobile Internet and high-speed 3G data downloading. HiBoost F10-3G PRO is one of the most popular 3G model. With 65 dB gain it’s powerful enough to cover any indoor area up to 500 sq.m. The working frequency of the booster is WCDMA 2100 MHz.

4G/LTE boosters

This type of cell phone signal repeaters improves LTE connection at all the frequencies accepted worldwide: 800 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2600 MHz etc. Since LTE mobile network becomes very popular globally, 4G and LTE boosters are going to be quite widespread in the nearest future.
Each Huaptec repeater comes in a kit with all the components necessary for installation and efficient system operation. The equipment is safe and healthy for users and complies with CE and RoHS certification standards.
