I have a Poco F2 Pro since last Summer. Some weeks ago, after an update, it started having some issues. First, when I receive a GSM call - or Whatsapp, the screen stays on. Even if I press the power button, it turns off and immediately back on again, wasting battery. The only way to shut the screen off is to minimize the app. Strangely, this does not happen when I make the call. I suspect it has to do with the notification system. I have the always-on screen activated. Bluetooth started having issues too. Sometimes other people don't hear me from the beginning of the call. I have to hang up and dial again. This did not happen when I bought the phone. Anybody experiencing the same thing? Cheers
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2021Bro, i think you need to check your setting properly if you really own a Poco F2 pro as all th... moreNope, it's genuine. And it's the most expensive version - the 8GB RAM/256GB ROM version. And yes, it's got a bright, beautiful, all screen display with HDR10+ screen, superfast processor, excellent rear camera, great battery life. And yes, I've been praising it when I got it with Android 10, the software version it was originally released with a year ago. But Android 11 was a horrendous mess of an update. It ruined everything - from buggy navigation gestures that don't work with third party launchers, to app crashes to that chopping off of bottom content because you can't get rid of the bottom center line/bar in full screen display mode. I have factory reset the phone to no avail. The hide bar option wouldn't display. And I can see others are not seeing that option too (see YouTube comments on the post shared earlier). There are undocumented changes/variations to the software that Xiaomi rolled out so two software with the same version numbers can have differences in the actual interface options. It's also horrible for an expensive 5G phone to tell you that you it needs to turn off the other SIM if you want 5G. Samsung phones allow dual SIM operation even when one SIM is set to 5G. (The other SIM will automatically be set to 4G/3G/2G auto). Not with Xiaomi. If you want 5G on one SIM, it will force you to turn off the other SIM making dual SIM operation impossible when on 5G. There are lots many other bugs in Android 11 - dark mode bugs, app craahes, and 'share with' and 'open with' bugs when MIUI optimization is turned off in developer options which is supposed to improve compatibility with some playstore apps. The Android 11 update is as many reddit users have said, is horrendously buggy it's almost criminal. Here read their comments:

Read the comments section of this YouTube video and you'll see some don't have the 'Hide bottom center bar' option shown in the video at 1 min and 8 sec into playback. That first option "Hide Full Screen Indicator" option is missing/not available in my Poco F2 Pro.
Dani, 13 Jun 2021I have asked some Poco f2 pro user's and they all have the full screen option I don'... moreI'm not talking about being able to do full display mode. I am talking about that LINE/BAR at the bottom center of the Poco F2 Pro (started with Android 11 update - MIUI 12.2.X.X) that you cannot get rid of or hide. It chops off the bottom portion of the screen and it causes PERMANENT burn in of Amoled screen because it is big and present all of the time.
There was no problem on the original Android 10 software (MIUI 12.0.X.X) because the line/bar at the center bottom do not exist in full display mode. It is only in Android 11 that you see it and can't remove, at least in my and other Poco F2 Pro users who upgraded to Android 11.
Also, that's not the only issue with Android 11 on the Poco F2 Pro. Navigation/swipe gestures also DO NOT WORK when on fyll display mode if you are using custom launchers like the most popular and most well reviewed - Nova launcher. Poco launcher is miles behind Nova launcher in versatility, customization and usefulness. Experienced and advanced android users use it as their main launcher because of superb performance and functionality. But it doesn't work properly with Xiaomi's Android 11 update of the Poco F2 Pro.
[deleted post]Apparently some rabid Xiaomi fanatics can't carry a normal, sane, conversation. If you can get rid of that ugly bottom center line in full display mode and you have that option in your Poco F2 Pro running the 'same' software as mine, doesn't mean the problem doesn't exist. Things like this can happen because unlike you, I don't like to use Xiaomi's stypid launcher and I always turn on developer options to adjust animation speeds and font sizes.
Before you open your foul mouth which is a reflection of your deranged mind, investigate and acknowledge there is goid possibilty things like these can happen!
azly, 09 Jun 2021poco x3 pro or f2 pro? can u guys suggest it to me? for gaming and battery lifeI have never owned any of these phones, so I'll just rely on the spec sheet to come up with an educated guess.
Simply saying, the F2 Pro is a better choice since it has a better battery life and chipset. If you want a detailed explanation, you can read on. Overall, the F2 Pro is better phone than the X3 Pro because it has more specs and features. However, the X3 Pro is a lot more cheaper than the F2 Pro.
First up, the processor, the F2 Pro has SD865 while the X3 Pro only has SD860 (which is just an overclocked SD855 chip), and also based on the Centurion benchmark, SD865 is still better than the SD860 so I'm guessing points go to F2 Pro.
Second is the battery life. The X3 Pro has quite a bigger battery than the F2 Pro but the X3 Pro uses a less energy-efficient LCD screen and the F2 Pro uses an AMOLED screen, which as many tech reviewers and analysts say is more energy efficient than LCD.
Another factor affecting battery life is memory. Both use UFS 3.1 storage and while the X3 Pro does not mention the use of LPDDR, the F2 Pro does but I'm not so sure about the efficiency of those.
For the battery life, I'll give points to the X3 Pro just because it has a bigger battery life, though it probably wouldn't be a big difference. However, this website lists the F2 Pro as having better battery endurance so go with that.
I have asked some Poco f2 pro user's and they all have the full screen option I don't know why your the only one experimenting this issue.

I have a 256 GB Poco F2 Pro running on the latest software V188.8.131.52.RJKEUXM and it doesn't have the option to get rid of that stupid bottom center bar/line that chops off content. Apparently we have the same software version but Xiaomi's horrendous software support clearly shows UNDOCUMENTED variations. If that's not enough proof of poor software update support, I don't know what is.

12.2.5 also gives me absolutely no issues. Very fast with crazy battery life.
Maybe you're just unlucky and got a faulty one from the factory
