Just Last month, infinix engineers rolled out a beta version of android lollipop for the infinix hot note. To be candid some people who actually tried the update ended up getting their device bricked, some complained about bugs after the update. I personally tried it myself, though it was successful but touch stopped working on my infinix hot note immediately after the update to Lollipop 5.1, so I had to downgrade back to Kitkat 4.4.
If your infinix hot note is malfunctioning due to the upgrade to android lollipop 5.1, the good news is that you can actually downgrade back to android Kitkat.
