If you want a faster processor that's future proof with 5G, if you want a master remote control in a phone (IR blaster), if you want a headphone jack, if you want 8K video, a bigger battery and a completely punch hole free screen, better jpeg and video processing with better sharpness, colors and noise handling, better dark mode where you can force and set apps INDIVIDUALLY to dark mode (including those that still don't support it), then you should get the Poco F2 Pro.
Now if you watch Netflix videos and store offline downloads for wireless screen sharing everywhere, you want a desktop interface (DEX mode), you want up to 1TB micro SD expansion (soon 2TB) for much lower price, ability to manually select LTE bands of your choice for your phone to connect to, a fuss free and much better handling of widgets and background apps, ability to have hidden hotspot (hidden SSID), ability to encrypt micro sd storage and an overall a more mature and more secure software operating system that doesn't have lingering doubts regarding government backdoors, get the S10 lite.
This phone is great, Decided not to pay huge money to upgrade from my S9+, I've had Samsung phones since the Galaxy S (S1) The Poco is fast with good cameras an a great display. Only thing I don't like is bundled optimization software has adds with no option to remove them. (and I accidently purchased another one thinking I was upgrading the existing software) Overall it's a great device for those who want fast hardware without paying top $$$$$
this phone is like 350 dollars in my country for the 8gb model is it worth the price or should i consider a samsung s10 lite for 340 dollars?

Lumpika, 11 Oct 2020Hi all.
How do I prevent phone to close locked background apps too?
Itt closes these random... moreFinally, another user has found out about one of the most annoying if not THE MOST ANNOYING MIUI/Xiaomi phone 'feature': Aggressive battery handling that kills apps regularly even those that are meant to continuously remain running in the background (clock widgets, calendar widgets, news widgets, screen overlays like custom navigation buttons, custom gestures, etc.)
Phones from Samsung, Google, LG, Android One phones and other phones with near stock android skins NEVER have this problem. You don't need to do anything; you don't need to set any special settings to prevent the apps meant to run in the background to get continuously killed/stopped/closed/disabled by the OS. Not so with MIUI based Xiaomi phones. MIUI likes to kill apps and it gets really irritating and infuriating because it just keeps on doing so repeatedly. MIUI is so aggressive and dumb. While with other phones above you don't need to do anything to prevent background apps from closing/stopping, with MIUI/Xiaomi phones, you need to do AT LEAST THESE 3 things to prevent MIUI from killing/closing/stopping/disabling updates of the background app:
1. Lock the app in recents (padlock icon) to prevent the app from being closed when you clear all recents. Long press on the app icon in recents and when you see a padlock icon, tap on it to ensure its in 'locked' position (closed, not open padlock icon). Even with the 'closed padlock' setting, it won't guarantee the background app won't be closed. Be sure not to swipe out 'locked' apps (with padlock icon) in recents. Even if they're locked, swiping them out in recents will close them. Just use 'X' to clear all apps. The locked apps (with padlock icon) which will remain in recents/memory.
2. The same apps you can see in 'recents' with the padlock icon, you also need to set them so that they are enabled to 'autostart'. Go to settings - apps - manage apps. Tap 'permissions'. Select 'Autostart'. Be sure the apps you want protected from MIUI's killing spree has the 'Autostart' toggle switch enabled. Doing so will ensure the app will autostart upon reboot of the phone or in case MIUI kills/disables them.
3. Lastly, be sure the apps you want to remain in memory have their 'app battery saver' set with 'No restrictions'. To check and change each app's battery saver settings, go to Settings - Battery & performance - App battery saver. Tap on the 3 dots at the upper right corner, then tap 'Sort by app settings'. Tap an app on the list to change its background settings. Apps you want to remain running in the background to prevent MIUI from killing them should be set to have 'No restrictions'. Apps you don't need to run 'dormant' in the background can be set under 'Battery saver'. Apps that you want notifications regularly delivered without delay should be set to 'No restrictions'. Apps that you don't need real time notification updates can be set to 'Restrict background apps' or 'Restrict background activity'. Remember, setting apps in 'Battery saver' means MIUI will suspend their activity as soon as they are in the background (you're not actively using or tapping them).
Oh, one more thing: Restoring backup layouts of your launchers (ex. restoring from a Nova launcher backup) will remove the 'Accessibility settings' permission. You'll need to kill the app first (force stop), clear recents and enable again 'accesibility' permission of the app under 'More download services'. It's the only way to restore 'accessibility' permission (necessary if you enabled select custom gestures like 'display recent apps' with a user defined gesture).
Given that recents will now be filled with apps that are padlocked because you want to protect them from MIUI's killing spree, how then do you make them 'disappear' from recents view without killing them? It's another one of MIUI's eccentricities: You actually swipe them out in recents without changing their protected status (still with padlock). Reboot your Xiaomi phone after swiping all of them out in recents. After reboot, they should all 'autostart' (if you set them to 'autostart' [#2]) and they will still be protected apps (padlock icon) running in the background. However, you will no longer see them in recents, but still, they are there, running in the background because you set them as protected apps.
After all the convoluted settings above, there are still situations where one app can edge out another app that's meant to run in the background causing the edged out app to stop running/stop updating. In this case, just tap on the app in question to allow it to re-run in the background. Be sure to limit apps running in the background to those that you truly want to. Otherwise, with limited RAM and too many apps set to run in the background, you still risk background apps from getting suspended/killed by MIUI.

Hello, I have a confusion on whether to buy the F2 Pro or OnePlus Nord. I understand F2 Pro is a flagship device and Nord isn't. But there are certain features that are cut out on both devices, like the factors mentioned;
*Design: F2 Pro had an Aluminium Frame while Nord is Plastic with no 3.5mm jack too.
*Display: Nord has a 90Hz AMOLED display while F2 Pro is 60Hz.
*Processor: F2 Pro has a SD 865 (UFS 3.1) while Nord has a 765G (UFS 2.1).
*Battery: F2 Pro has a 4700mAh (Quick Charge 4+ and USB Power Delivery 3.0) while Nord is with 4115mAh.
When I consider gaming, F2 Pro is the better choice but I'm afraid I'll miss the 90Hz smoothness. I don't want to go for LCD too. Can anyone recommend which I should go with according to my factors?
