One of the best thing I like in pocophone F1 is the built-in system app that records conversations. The playback is crisp clear. One hope the recorder app comes with all Xiaomi phones.
I have using POCO F1 Armour Edition with 8/256GB from last 9 months. Still it is good. Good Memory, Good, Picture, and the Face Unlock is Superb fast. Everything is good. And under 25K, you will never get any other devices for replace it.
Anyone, 03 May 2019It is because that there will be no space for the notification icons as the notch area blocks ... moreYou both are aware that the notch can be hidden, right? Youl'll lose a bit of screen real estate but you'll see the notifications without any obtrusions. Hopefully they'll correct this on the Pocophone F2...

This poco f1 is able to browse all day long in one full charge. You can use 10-12 hours havy use with uninterrupted.

Anonymous, 12 Jan 2019LOL ROFL Poco is the most innovative of 2018. Seriously is GSMArena this is your review?
You ... moreReally? You do realize in day to day use most of those features don't matter? Plastic body? Don't care, I use case anyway. Fragile display? Not sure, I use a screen protector. No OLED? Not an issue, with it's big battery ambient display is possible even with an LCD. Sound quality is good, the camera is great for 320Euro phone (if you use Google Camera of course!). What makes it a flagship is indeed the SoC. Something a lot of people care about. I don't watch netflix, when I want to watch something it is on my Plex server and I watch it on my computer, on a good, big monitor so display resolution or lack of any HDR is a non issue for me. As for the bleeding, the only place I can spot it is on the lockscreen. Not in Youtube playback, not in calling, not in web browsing, not in the camera app. So it is a non issue, yet again.
The reason why GSMArena dunks on flagships is because of the lack of innovations they provide. With S9 to S10, we knew we would get faster SoC, bigger display, better camera etc. Nothing unexpected. If S10 launched with S855 at 400Euros, that would be something new. But it did not.
So, it is not worth trying MIUI 10 again.
I have been a few month Poco user, running HavocOS since day 4 (72 hour bootloader waiting period, remember). Tried MIUI (in Xiaomi.eu form) only once and notifications were a dealbreaker. Or, lack thereof.
How to fit more into the notch? Well, either move statusbar below (yes, MIUI allows that but rounds corners in software for some reason), or just make the clock smaller. I can fit 2 icons + the dot next to my clock.
Second, when I tried Xiaomi.eu MIUI 10.3.5, there were 0 notifications on the lockscreen. None at all. That is unusable.
I'm so confuse which one is better. Honor Play, Nova 3i or Pocophone F1. From Philippines here and I'm kind of hesitating to buy the Poco because of the issues I've read. Better Chipset, 6gb ram. Please guide me who should I buy.
Dear Poco Users!
I have echo issue during calls. Does anyone have that same problem? Thank you for your answers!
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2019Bottomline is, my Asus ROG phone and Mate 20 Pro is better than the Pocophone F1.I agree, the ASUS ROG phone comes with 90 hz display.
Poco F1 user, 21 Jan 2019I have Poco F1 and the "No notification icons in the status" is catastrophic for me. I bought ... moreIt is because that there will be no space for the notification icons as the notch area blocks the middle part of the status bar, and yeah that's what I hate from notched phones. But about it's performance, it is worth it in its price especially when you love games.
