I actually copied and posted this on my social media platforms yesterday but didn't remember to post it here. And behold, after doing what they saw in the post, some of them had testimonies that their phones are now working well especially the hotspot and Bluetooth turning off and battery drain after nougat update. Here's the content of the post:

Have you noticed your infinix battery which was great before has been draining in record time? it also gets hot and drains fast even when put in ultra power saving mode?

have you noticed you can't seem to switch on your hotspot and Bluetooth as they automatically switch off?

what could be responsible for this thing? a virus? battery getting weaker? it took time, energy and I was even tethering on the brink of getting rid of my note 2 till I finally found the culprit

The culprit: Babel Font

this app must've been made by some wicked set of humans cuz you'll never even suspect its responsible for it, you'll try frantically even restore factory settings to no avail

here are the app permissions being granted to the app

This app has access to:

Device & app history

Allows the app to view one or more of: information about activity on the device, which apps are running, browsing history and bookmarks

Identity

Uses one or more of: accounts on the device, profile data

Location

Uses the device's location

Photos/Media/Files

Uses one or more of: files on the device such as images, videos, or audio, the device's external storage

Wi-Fi connection information

Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and names of connected Wi-Fi devices

Device ID & call information

Allows the app to determine the phone number and device IDs, whether a call is active, and the remote number connected by a call

Other

download files without notification
close other apps
receive data from Internet


why a user is not given rights to uninstall it ? Why a font app is given permission to install apps without notification , close other apps and receive sensitive data from the device?

there are rumors that this app is actually a spyware used to send your information to China but let's not digress too much

this app comes with the phone as a "bloatware"

how to remove this system destabilising, battery draining and emotional sucker app?

find Babel Fonts in Settings - App - Babel Fonts, and then uninstall it. it'll ask if you want to go back to default font app by uninstalling update, kindly confirm it

then reboot your phone and you'll notice your hotspot and Bluetooth can now turn on AND your battery lasts longer
