Audio Jack, 28 Oct 2020Let us also mention that since it is a Xiaomi mobile device, you get free annoying advertisements. I love ads, they heelp to choose the best product especially customised ads (in interest)
MrHong, 28 Oct 2020Because MIUI is not as well optimised as iOS, let alone OneUI or EMUI. So 60Hz feels like 45Hz... moreLol feel 45hz even my old xiaomi mi5s is still fast one ui isnt that good even lack double tap to sleep until one ui 3
Second months user here, snappy fast and super battery life. But the MIUI, everytime an apps stop responding, u will not see message like "xxx has stop responding, stop or wait" but auto reboot the phone, it will happen 1~2 in a week, is that a bugs??
Saying the present price a steal, how about a k30 pro zoom 8/256 at 2799cny (usd417/€353)? That is the price from xiaomi official ourlet at this double 11 season. I have been waiting to get a good camera phone at reasonable price for a long time. The price was 3999cny at launch which in my opinion was too much. I wished and hoped k30 ultra had a camera spec as k30 pro zoom but none was forth coming. I also eagerly awaited new models. k30s ultra disappointed me. The reason k30 pro zoom price drops so much is probably the screen at 60hz. I do not play games so it is not an issue. I also insist on front under display fingerprint sensor. So 144hz lcd with side fingerprint sensor is a no no for me.
I think I have struck a best deal for my need.

And to think this isn't even the best phone in the K30 series. The K30 Ultra is next level with Dimensity 1000+, stereo speakers, IP53 rating and 120hz amoled. Too bad it is limited to China only.

Tired of seeing people complaining about refresh rate as this phone is only 60Hz amoled and yet when Mi 10T Pro came out, people still complaining that 144hz lcd as to why it's not an amoled, and they prefer 60hz amoled when there is literally THIS PHONE WITH 60Hz AMOLED
shaq1907, 27 Oct 2020"At the moment, our review unit is still stuck on the July 1, 2020 security patch level. ... moreEveryone is freaking out about updates like they're something meaningful. Is just a play made by Google to make people isterical. The real updates are those wich are provided by OEMs because those are the one influencing the quality of software
any mention on annoying ads on the MIUI and its stock apps experience?
Well i dont know about POCO F2 but in my experience using F1, i Think POCO is far from tittle 'Flagship ot Killer'
My reason is : This Smartphone is far far from perfect
especially the Software...the OS is really sucks ... 3 times major update are failed. Last one that makes me anggry is when i Upgraded to miui 12... I update it via OTA (official), and the result is Bootloop (Fastboot) all off the internal data LOST also the OS itself. And i Must Flashing it from the beginning. Luckily I succeed. Can you imagine in the middle of the night when you want to Update your Phone and suddenly it FAILED? and the Phone iss your one and only daily driver?

Only K30/PocoX2 :-( Currently on EU ROM 12.0.8, because Android11 (12.1.3) is still too buggy. Please post a link to Pixel Experience ROM for our device!
Superb phone. Truly a flagship killer with a full screen display that not even flagships have. Some (looking you iPhones) still come with a stupid notch. Tremendous deal.
Anonymous, 28 Oct 2020The amount of times they were sh*tting on 60hz, I wonder if the same wordings will surface dur... moreBecause MIUI is not as well optimised as iOS, let alone OneUI or EMUI. So 60Hz feels like 45Hz in the Xiaomi. EU ROM is better but typical Asian buyers will have no clue how to install it.
My wish list for F3:
- lighter (< 200g)
- 1x tele 10x optical, 1x macro , 1x ultra, & 1x main cam.
This is the best phone of 2020. You can get it from €350 in Europe now. When it came out costing 500 it was very good but now for 350 is just insane. This would've been the Oneplus flagship killer that never happened because Oneplus escalated their prices. So xiaomi did the true flagship killer.
If you can, buy the Poco F2 Pro brother instead, the K30 PRO Zoom edition. It costs near 400 but adds telephoto cam with OIS and main camera also with OIS if you really need that for better photos. For the price phone is almost perfect...flash a xiaomi eu rom or pixel experience rom and enjoy.
