Annoying Ads Showing On TECNO Smart Phone

TECNO unarguably has grown to become one of the leading Smart phone brands in Africa. This is owing largely to its competitive and cheaper price compared to its functionalities. This means that, it is safe to say that there are hundreds of millions of TECNO smart phone users.

However, in the past few months I have noticed some annoying ads showing on my TECNO Smart Phone. I know I am not alone in this as it also affects INFINIX smart phone users too. This started with an Update of the TECNO’s own customized version of Android OS, the HiOS launcher.

The HiOS has a good reputation for its stability and attractive blend of color, giving it a nice appearance. However, this reputation is somewhat dented with its recent update giving way to different ads showing on TECNO smart phone application lists.

Description Of The Ads And Why They Are Annoying

You might have noticed that the ads shows up in three (3) variants;

First, at the footer of your app folder. These ads are majorly about some sort of games, although other apps also do appear. They have a title that says “Guess You Like”. You can close ad bar by simply clicking the close (X) at the bottom right corner, but like a virus, it would stills come back. The ad is really distracting and this makes it totally annoying.

Second, at the top of your app list. The update that caused this mess also added a feature called Instant apps (play without installation). This is actually a feature that was added by Google to Android that allows you to use an app without installing it. However, TECNO is exploiting this for ads display on its smartphones. The ads here are also majorly games.

  • To hide this, tap the more (:) button at the top right of the page,
  • Then tap “Hide Instant App”.

Third, right there at the group of your favorite apps.

It’s quite annoying that TECNO continues to show ads to its customers who fully paid for their devices, without there consent. And it seems it is not going to stop any time soon.
