Itel Wish A41 & Wish A 41 Plus 4G VOLTE Specs / Review

Best Dual OS Tablets

A Dual OS tablet is one which is capable of running two different Operating Systems. I got to a stage in my work that I realized I needed to combine my Mobile (Android) and PC (Windows) tasks into one device. This would make more sense especially for tasks which required me to use (and move stuff between) Read more…


Itel it1511, it1512, it1518 and it1520 technical specifications

In my previous post on recently launched Itel Marshmallow devices, I highlighted the technical specifications of the Itel S11 and 1513 . I also dropped a hands-on review of the Itel it1513 .

cloud transfer for google drive, dropbox, mega, onedrive, 4shared, baidu, amazon, copy, ftp, mysql

Having accounts with multiple Cloud Storage Services (e.g Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive etc) is quite normal when you manage a lot of heavy files. There come those times when you need to move heavy files (I’m talking Gigabytes) from one Cloud Storage to another. Downloading then re-uploading is neither cost nor data effective…unless you have unlimited data and Read more…

Tecno launched the Phantom 6 (A6) last month (September 2016) and there’s been quite some buzz about it. Team Hovatek got its hands on a copy of this phone so I’ll be walking you through the unboxing.

Just the other day, I was chatting with a colleague and we were talking about the Tecno, Gionee, Infinix, Innjoo, Itel and Opsson war for supremacy.

Lets take a step back to look at some things that have Read more…


Infinix last month released the Infinix Note 2 (X600) codenamed The Big 6. I must first express my deep dissatisfaction with the earlier Infinix Hot Note (X551). There were three different variants: 1GB RAM 16GB ROM (X551) 2GB RAM 16GB ROM (X551) 2GB RAM 32GB ROM (X551) As an Android Developer, I would tell you that they’re essentially the Read more…


Infinix yesterday launched the anticipated Infinix zero 3 after quite some hype (#Hero3logy). This is yet another addition to the Zero line.  I must say that I’m yet to meet a Mediatek Android developer who doesn’t have his / her reservations about inbuilt batteries when it comes to Modding, so I’m not a big fan of the Read more…
