Am still confused why Infinix choose to double up one SIM slot as an external SD slot. This change does not make any sense at all especially if you are using the 16GB ROM version as this not contain all your favorite Apps and games, excluding your Pictures and Videos.

Unfortunately, for this dual sims with SD card, there is no possible fix for this error by Infinix. You just need to sacrifice either your second sim or SD Card.
