The Intex FitRist is a health band available in India sold by Intex. This device is primarily for the domestic Indian market. The OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) of this device is believed to be Shenzhen Chuangzhijieke Technology Co from China. The Chinese company also builds different fitness devices for other brands like GoBand, GetFit Band, YourFitnessTracker, Haier Smart Band and many others. In this post, we will be focussing primarily on Setup Intex FitRist Band to Android devices. Read along to know more.
Asus Zenphone series of smartphones are quite popular, especially in the emerging markets like India. This is primarily due to its low entry-level cost and great specs. The Zenphone Gen1 and Gen2 are powered by Intel Atom series of processors. This changed with the Zenphone 3 series which is currently out of scope for this discussion. Asus released these series of phones with a number of variations. Zenphone 5 came with 2110 MaH and the Zenphone 2 came with a 3000 MaH battery. This along with the ZenUI and a whole load of preinstalled apps caused a lot of battery drain issues. Users from around the world posted their poor battery experience on online forums. This brings us to the topic of discussion. After using both the Zenphone 2 and well as the Zenphone 5 for years, I guess I am qualified to answer this. I figured different ways to optimize the battery performance and in this post, we will talk about just that. Read along to know how to fix fast battery draining issue in Asus ZenPhone 2 and 5 series.
Fix Fast Battery Draining Issue in Asus ZenPhone 2
Even though the Asus Zenphone comes with a lot of preinstalled apps (Read: Bloatware) which keeps running in the background, you can stop this. The ZenUI has inbuilt functionalities to restrict apps from running in the background. You can safely choose which apps you would like to run in the background and which ones not. Here are the options below which you can follow.
#Option 1: Mobile Manager
The mobile manager is a new addition to the ZenUI and is accessible from the settings menu. When you swipe down from the top, you will be able to see “Mobile Manager” as the top right most menu button. Tap on that and follow the steps below.
Step 1: Tap on Settings>Mobile Manager>Tap on Optimize. This stops unnecessary background applications.
Step 2: Setup a shorter screen on time. 30 seconds should be optimal for this setting.
Step 3: Goto “Power saver” menu and select a power saving mode suited for your lifestyle. You can set your battery profile to “Power Saving” mode if you do not want your background apps to run in the background.
Step 4: Tap on the “Smart Switch” menu and select the option “Switch by Schedule“. You can use this option to enable power saving option in the off-peak periods. For example, during the night when you normally go to sleep.
Step 5: Tap on “boost” to temporarily flush out excessive Ram usage. This extends your battery life as well.
Here are the screenshots for your reference:
#Option 2: Asus Auto-start Manager
This option used to exist in the main settings page, Asus decided to move it and integrate it with Mobile Manager. In order to fix fast battery draining issue in Asus ZenPhone 2 & 5, the auto-start manager was the only option before. Using this app, you can choose to select which app to run in the background. We recommend you to only run the apps which you think is absolutely necessary to run in the background. You can open the auto-start manager in two ways.
- Option 1: Go to Settings>Battery>Tap on Top Right Hand Menu>Select to Open “Auto-start Manager“
- Option 2: Go to Settings>Mobile Manager>Permissions>Auto-Start Manager
Once Auto-start manager is opened, you can select and unselect the apps which you want to run the background. Tap on both the “Downloaded” and “Preloaded” options and repeat with the same steps. Here are the screenshots below:
The preloaded menu helps you to stop the unecessary background apps. These processes keeps on running from the time you activated the phone. These are some of the easiest and immediate steps that you can take to prevent your phone from draining out battery. I hope this was helpful.

Devices communicating over Bluetooth is not just a feature, but a necessity. With more and more devices communicating over Bluetooth, compatibility issues arises. Although these devices communicate over standardized Bluetooth protocols, their behavior isn’t. It is difficult (If not impossible) to test compatibility issues with all devices, especially for the Operating System vendors. Device anomaly is common and the end users face difficulties while operating them. Google’s mobile operating system Android is not exempt of these issues and this is what we will discuss in this post. Bluetooth issues date back to the initial editions of Android and till today, users have reported lots of issues online. In this post we talk about how to fix unfortunately Bluetooth share has stopped error message.
How To Fix Unfortunately Bluetooth Share Has Stopped Error
Initially, it is highly recommended to do the basic steps first and then move onto advanced troubleshooting (Rooting etc.). Especially for the basic users, rooting is not a good option, unless you know what you are doing. So, with expectations being set, here are the basic steps to perform to fix unfortunately Bluetooth share has stopped error message.
- Step 1: Ensure that your phone/tablet’s Android version is up-to-date.
- Step 2: Go to Settings and scroll down to the bottom. Tap on “About” and Tab on “System Updates“
- Step 3: Check and download if any updates are available.
Here are some screenshots for your reference. Do note that the menu options will differ for different Android ROM’s. In our example, we are using an Asus Zenphone 2.
- Step 1: Try pairing the Bluetooth device with another 3rd party phone.
- Step 2: If the Bluetooth device is also not pairing with the 3rd device, then the problem might be isolated to the Bluetooth device and not your phone. If the Bluetooth device is successfully paired with the 3rd device, then the problem can be isolated to your phone.
- Step 3: Go to your Phone Settings>BlueTooth>Unpair & Delete the device from the List. Try deleting the device from the Bluetooth device with which you are trying to pair your phone if possible. For example, In car audio systems, you can find the list of phones with which it is configured.
Try rebooting the mobile into safe mode. This might differ for different phone vendors. In our case, these are the steps:
- Step 1: Press and hold the power button while the screen is On. #Reboot
- Step 2: Press to hold the volume down button when the phone reboots.
- Step 3: Doing this will only load the default phone apps and services.
- Step 4: While the device is in safe mode, try pairing the Bluetooth device.
Note: Do note if the fix Unfortunately Bluetooth Share Has Stopped Error still persists.
#Option 4: Requires Root access!
Before proceeding, do note that this is an advanced step and users needs to proceed with extreme caution. Any wrong file modification may result in data loss or may void your phone warranty. Here are the steps:
- Step 1: Ensure that you install a File Explorer application to browse your root files.
- Step 2: Turn off Bluetooth first, and browse to “/datamedia/misc/bluedroid“. Look for the file called “bt_config.xml“
- Step 3: Create a backup of the file or rename it to bt_config.xml_old
- Step 4: Open the file in a text editor. Proceed to delete the devices listed under <N2 Tag=”remote”> and </N2>. You can leave the Bluetooth devices that you intend to keep.
- Step 5: Save the file as bt_config.xml in the same location. Try reconnecting to the device again.
This error is only experienced when devices running Android are exposed to a large number of unique hardware addresses (Including Bluetooth) which overwhelms the subsystem.
I hope that this was helpful. If the problem persists, go ahead and contact your phone manufacturer for any possible alternative solutions. Any comment, suggestions or feedbacks can be dropped below in the comment section.
The Xiaomi Mi Band 2 is a surprisingly easy device to use and operate. I have already spoken about How to Setup Install and Configure Xiaomi Mi Band 2 Step by Step in a previous post. Our experience with the unit that we received was flawless. The device setup took us less than 2 minutes to configure after unboxing it. However, a good number of users complained online about connectivity issues and device not being responsive. That too only after a month or two of usage. In this post, I will explain how to connect and reset Mi Band 2 using Android. [Read more…]
The Xiaomi Mi band 2 is the latest iteration of the Mi health band series from Xiaomi. Unlike its predecessor, the Mi band, the Mi band 2 comes with an OLED touch panel display. The Mi band 2 comes loaded with features. Its low cost makes it one of the most attractive health bands in the market. Our unit was purchased for 1999 rupees (About $30) from Amazon India. The new health band comes with a Pedometer to measure your steps. It is an IP67 waterproof, dust-proof and sweat resistant device. That being said, it only took a couple of minutes to setup the device and ready to roll. In this post, we will focus on how to configure Xiaomi Mi band 2 step by step. [Read more…]
Xiaomi Mi Max is currently the biggest phone across its portfolio. The phone sports a 6.44″ FHD screen and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 Hexacore processor. The inbuilt e-MMC storage is provided by Samsung. Overall, it’s a phone with great specs and built-quality. With dimensions of 173.1 x 88.3 x 7.5mm this is a huge phone in comparison to other phablets. The phones that are sold in India are also made in India’s Sri City in Andhra Pradesh. This makes it marginally cheaper than what we have seen in other markets like Singapore and Phillippines. The unit that we are using came with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of eMMC storage. The cost of the unit was about $117 which makes it an attractive buy for Indian consumers. While all good things being said about the device, one minor bug is creating a lot of negative sentiments around this awesome device. Users have reported repeated WiFi disconnections and in some cases, no WiFi connections at all. So in this post, we have decided to talk about resolving the WiFi Connectivity Issues in Xiaomi Mi Max.
Step 1 to resolve WiFi Connectivity Issues in Xiaomi Mi Max
The device comes with MIUI 7 preinstalled. The MIUI is Xiaomi’s Android customizations on top of Android Marshmellow 6.0. Just like other Android vendors, Xiaomi periodically releases updates and fixes to its Android customizations from time to time. Your first step is to upgrade from MIUI 7 to MIUI 8. Irrespective of whether you have WiFi issues or not, upgrading to the latest version of Xiaomi’s MIUI resolves a lot of issues. See below:
As you can see from the above screenshots, the MIUI 8 does contain the WiFi fixes, in addition to other bug fixes and added feature customizations. The package size is about 298 megabytes. If you are facing WiFi issues you can manually download the ROM update and use a Windows PC to flash your device.
Steps to Manually Update your device Connectivity Issues in Xiaomi Mi Max
- Download the MiFlashSetup.MSI from the website here.
- Download the ROM for your device from here.
- Use the MiFlashSetup tool to update the device using your PC
- Alternatively, you can download the ROM and copy it to your internal storage drive root directory
- Open the updater app from the tools folder
- Tap on the updater App “Three Dots” to select the update file and flash your device.
Do keep in mind that you do not need to update if you do not face any WiFi connection issues. Updating directly to the MIUI 8 ROM should fix all the issues. Do remember that once you start the device for the first time, the default ROM is MIUI 7. There would be 2 updates after this. The first one takes your device to MIUI 7.5 and the second update takes you to MIUI 8. We recommend that you download both the updates as soon as possible.
In our case, WiFi Connectivity Issues in Xiaomi Mi Max was not detected at all. Thankfully so.
Do let us know for any feedback that you may have about this article. You may also drop us a comment if you are still facing issues with the device.
If you are trying to create some additional room for disk space on your portable device, a secure digital (SD) card comes to our minds. You can either be a computer enthusiast or a geek looking to get the cheapest deal online. For some reason, SD Cards (especially micro-sd) are subject to the biggest counterfeited product available online. Arguably, most of the world’s biggest marketplaces have their own fair share of counterfeited storage products. Even though almost everybody provides “Buyer Protection” or “Refund” schemes, this did not stop sellers selling counterfeit products. This could be due to the fact that most users are unaware of the refund schemes or in some cases, too late to claim their refund. Whatever might be the reason, how do you know that you are a victim? How to detect fake Micro SD cards? Read more to find out! [Read more…]
The battle of the web browsers has extended to the mobiles and tablets. While the desktop browser market share is largely dominated by Microsoft (Internet Explorer & Edge), the mobile market share is largely dominated by Google and Apple (Android Browser, Chrome & Safari). So, in a nutshell, if you are building a browser, it needs to have awesome features to grab any market share. You will not even find Opera (Excluding Opera Mini) or UC browser in the primary list since they are categorized as “Others”. Opera browser in order to differentiate itself in the browser market is currently offering an amazing feature which no one else is currently offering. Presenting the Ad-supported Free Opera VPN. But before we go into the details, let’s have a look at the current global market share for Mobile browsers:
The browser market share is very dynamic in nature and the landscape changes every few years. Will the Opera browser be able to grab market share in the nex few years? We’ll have to wait and find out. For now, let’s look at its killer features.
Presenting the Free Opera VPN
Opera free VPN is currently offering unlimited data transfers. What this means is that you can browse the internet without any data cap. The free opera VPN is integrated into the Opera desktop browser. For Android and iOS users, however, you will need to download the VPN App from the App store. Unlike the desktop browser, the free Opera VPN app is a standalone app which needs to be installed separately on Android and iOS. The mobile app also has an advantage over its desktop counterpart. Once you configure the mobile app, the entire WiFi, and Mobile Data traffic goes through the VPN network. Irrespective of whether you use the Opera browser or not, you can still use the VPN to access resources over the internet.
Quick Note: Torrent Downloads are not supported over the Free Opera VPN
In order to completely browser anonymously, Opera recommends you to enable both the Ad blocker as well as the VPN. This is because users using the free Opera VPN can still be tracked using tracking cookies by Ad networks. Even though browser cookies are not a security threat, they do store user preferences, online browsing activity etc. Users can also clean their cookies and use a VPN to connect to websites anonymously. So, let’s look at how you can enable and use the Opera VPN on different devices. Currently, Opera provides you free VPN access from the following locations:
- United States
When you access websites using the free Opera VPN, your location is based on the country that you select. This enables you to browse country specific content. Access content typically blocked at work or even YouTube videos which are restricted based on your location. In addition to that, you can hide your own public IP address and more secure public WiFi connections.
Configure Free Opera VPN on Windows
In Windows and Mac, the VPN client is built into the Opera browser.
Step : Go-To Settings > Privacy & Security > Check Options “Enable VPN” under VPN menu.
Do note, that this functionality is provided by SurfEasy Inc which also happens to be an Opera company. Opera is using their VPN services in order to provide this functionality to their users for free!
Configure Free Opera VPN on Android
- Step 1 : Download the Opera VPN from the Google Play Store.
- Step 2: Open the APP and Tap OK to the following option
- Step 3: Tap Connect
Once connected, you should be able to browse the Internet anonymously from multiple locations provided to you by the free Opera VPN App. Once connected, we checked our location and it showed a different location (Even though GPS location was accurate). See below:
The switching function across regions is also seamless. We were able to change our location to Buffalo New York with a Tap. See below:
Configure Free Opera VPN on iOS for iPhone and Ipad
Just like in Android, the iOS app also provides you the same functionality. It also comes with Ad Blocking functions. In order to configure it, follow the simple steps below:
Step 1: Download the free Opera VPN software from the App Store.
Step 2: Tap on Allow on the pop-up menu “Opera VPN” would like to add VPN Configurations.
Step 3: Tap to enable all 3 options based on user preferences.
Under General Settings, “Personal VPN” section should show Opera VPN as connected. See the screenshots below for your reference:
Once set, you can start web browsing or watch YouTube videos based on the VPN location context. All your Data traffic will now go though the VPN connection and tracking you back would be difficult, if not impossible. You can optionally turn off GPS if you want to avoid exposing your location. We checked the VPN speeds to cross check Opera’s claims and we got satiesfying results. See our speedtest below:

Outside the Jio preview option, other smartphones like Oneplus Xiomi etc. will be able to use the Jio network after the commercial launch.
In my previous post, I have spoken about the Reliance Jio MiFi device setup and configuration. Once your Reliance Jio sim is activated, setting up the device was easily done. The Internet speed under the preview program was good, but not as per our initial expectations. However, this is a Beta program and Reliance Jio team is actively monitoring and optimizing their network. When you buy the device from the Reliance Digital Store, you will also get a free sim. The representative will tell you that it is a data only sim. However, this is not true. As we found out, you can also make VoLTE calls and send SMS from any Android (or iOS) phone. You do not need to install any Jio Sim to use this feature. Interested? Read along to know more about how to make free calls using the JioFi MiFi Device and Android (or iPhones) phones.
