Hello T-Fans,Dual sim devices have become the trend in Africa’s smartphone ecosphere. It is almost impossible to be an African without having asecond SIM card. This is due to inconsistent service packages by serviceproviders, which makes users switching from one network to the other. This isone of the reasons why dual SIM phone sales have surpassed single SIM phonesin the African market.
Switching between networks on mobile data can be an uphilltask as you have to first visit settings, then Network and Internet, then youselect SIM card and finally mobile data. This could be sometimes stressfulespecially if you are in the middle of something and you run out of data on oneSIM.
The HiOS team saw this issue and thought deeply about how tosolve the problem. They now came up with a simple and faster way of switchingSIM mobile data without going through a long process.
Introducing, the Mobile Data Switcher!
How to UseYou don’t need to go to settings again to switch between mobilenetworks again. All you need to do now is swipe down and click on the dataswitcher icon on the notification panel and you switch instantly!

Social media has become part of our daily lives. We are constantly chatting and sending messages to friends and families all day long. Out of all the well-known social media platforms, Whatsapp is the most popular.
Almost everyone is on Whatsapp. During our course of interactions on Whatsapp, lots of messages are sent and received. Out of those messages, some get deleted by us, while some are deleted by the sender.
There are also times where you want to quickly view a message sent to you, without the sender knowing we have viewed the message. Well, I have got good news! We have developed a feature that makes all these possible.
Introducing, the Peek Mode.
The Peek mode is a feature under the Social Turbo App.

Just scroll to your Social TurboApp and open it. Select Peek Mode. And you would see all your missed Whatsapp messages, including the deleted messages.

Hello T-fans,Almost everyone loves to play games. From simple 2D games like Candy Crush to complex 3D games like Call of Duty, there seems to be a game for everyone. Mobile gaming has become one of the perks of using a mobile phone.
But during a gaming session, you might sometimes need to urgently reply a message and at the same time, you don’t want to quite a game you are so deep into. Or it might be a case where you are stuck on a particular stage in the game and you need to search online for assistance, but you know exiting the screen would quit the game or make you miss some actions, so it is not an option. What do you do in such situations?
The answer is The Floating Window!This is a solution introduced on the latest version of HiOS, version 5.5 (and above). How does it work?When gaming and you really need to reply to a Whatsapp message or search for something online, all you need to is trigger the Game Assistant by swiping (either left of the screen, depending on the location of the Smart Panel). You would now select the option you want (Either web browseror Whatsapp). The app appears on the screen in a floating manner without interruptingthe gaming screen. You can move the Floating Window to any part of the screen. Once done, you just click on the “x” on the top of the floating window and it is gone!
