    Yea prexblog, the update is on the system update, the volume is about 1.2gb. I log into the infinix X club to see the reactions of those that have updated to 7.0 and I was surprised that everybody was complaining about the update ranging from phone rebooting every minute to battery draining fast and numerous other bugs in the update.So Iam afraid to update so as not to be confronted with such numerous complaints.Please precious any advice?
