  2. Happy sunday Prof. There's this problem i had with my phone. It's really frustrating. If i wanted to download apps from playstore or simply update them, after downloading, it stay like that for like eternity. Let's say i am downloading a 18MB app, after it got fully to 18MB, it will stay like that for 20, 30 minutes before now popping "installing". Please, what could be the problem?
    Most times, i do factory reset the phone which usually work but after some times, this problem comes back.
    Is there any 'settings' i've tampered with?

    • hello Victor,
      the issue is with your device. Go to settings, applications, clear your app data and cache. reboot your device, try downloading again and install, then watch the process.
