I'm 50-50 on buying the poco/k30 pro.
Maybe I'll just buy a midrange and wait for next year to find a flagship phone I want because this year still full of punch hole.
About the pop-up camera, it is the 2nd best option imho. Best available idea is dual display like nubia x and nubia z20.
I hope xiaomi makes mi mix 4 a dual display like nubia z20.
I love nubia z20 concept but i know they never give updates and camera settings are limited when using as front cam despite being same camera hardware. So i never bought it.

Install all software updates. If you've never had any software updates from Xiaomi or if Google Playstore and other Google apps disappear after the factory reset, then you have a tampered ROM. Return phone for a refund and buy one from a reputable official Xiaomi seller.

Even the K30 PRO and POCO F2 Pro have the same hardware, there's no assurance installing software of one for the other will not create any problems. Xiaomi forbids it and do not honor warranties for phones with TAMPERED ROMs.
raycon, 22 Jun 2020please stop trolling. when we say it's hot it mean it's uncomfortable to hold type of hot. not... moreI'm not trolling, I'm saying FACTS. Flagship processors heat up more, and yes, they can get hot especially recording 4K video continuously or intermittently for several hours like when you're recording safari or travel 4K videos. I should know because I regularly experience it in my other flagship phones and even upper midrange phones with over clocked processor.
When a phone overheats, it gives you a high temperature prompt and the performance suffers, in this case, the 4K recording skips frames. Performance throttles that's why it now skips frames. Other than that, it continues to operate and continues recording maintaining the much higher temperature but not getting any hotter. IT'S ABSOLUTELYNORMAL. It cools down once the 4K recording sessions stop.
So unless the phone is exhibiting other problems like shutting down or malfunctioning, it's flagship phone getting hot during processor extensive activities is perfectly normal. The only phones that don't heat up much are those with midrange processors.
The only time it's abnormal is when you can no longer hold the phone because the temperature rise hasn't plateaud and the phone has exhibited malfunctions like force closing apps repeatedly or shutting down or restarting spontaneously without the user doing it.
Overheating can frequently occur from rogue or malicious apps or apps going haywire or more commonly, CORRUPTION of android operating system. This is ESPECIALLY TRUE when accompanied by another symptom like RAPID BATTERY DRAIN. This a also happen for phones with TAMPERED ROM's. Example: Redmi K30 PRO with fake global ROM. From my experience, the only way to correct it is factory reset, assuming the software is OFFICIAL MIUI GLOBAL ROM. Otherwise, it's a hopeless case and installing the official/original ROM the phone came with, (example official CHINA ROM with no Google Playstore) is the only solution. That is why YOU SHOULD NEVER BUY from unofficial Xiaomi stores or grey market sellers. It's a gamble and when you get problems with the phone, Xiaomi won't honor it.

Please, people who don't have the phone, don't comment or advise or voice your opinions. we are talking facts here, not opinions 👍
aziz, 21 Jun 2020hi i just had my poco f2 pro i notice that it heats up a lot i wonder does mine have a problem... moreyes, I have the same issue. mine started heating up like crazy after the pop up camera stopped working.
Every part of the phone is above 43c hot even when I watch youtube with nothing else in the background.
There's gonna be a lot of people complaining about this device, trust me. It's been available for only a couple of weeks and there's a lot of people having problems with it.
see the pop up camera failure in the video:

It's not a problem. If you don't want it, you should buy midrange phones instead.

Otherwise, you can only choose flipper model designs or pop-ups or wait until 2023 for underdisplay selfie cameras.
Thoughts about Poco F2 Pro...
I don't like the pop up/ motorized selfie camera.
Any other hardware issues?
Thoughts about Redmi Note 9S and 9 Pro...
Any better options than these.. like Oneplus 8?
Hoping to hear from you experts.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2020Yes, I can certainly understand your frustration with Xiaomi. Xiaomi actually rendered 3 of my... moretotally agreed 👍 I was never a brand consumer. in regard to the warranty I think xiaomi is trash in UK, they don't obey the law, I don't have time or budget to sue them. Just beware of your warranty, buy only from them and if they don't officially sell that phone in your country, buy it from a physical store were you can actually return it and get it fixed. And the thing is xiaomi doesn't want to repair it even if I pay. I went to a local repair shop and they can't fix it because the motor is fried and there is no replacement part for it at this point, maybe in a couple of months. Not to mention now, I have serious overheating issues maybe because of the motherboard, it can't be from the motor because it's now disconnected. So basically now I'm stuck with a brick. One more thing I would like to say is that there is a common myth that xiaomi said it tested the motor for 300k open and closes, there maybe some confusion with what Oneplus said about their 7 series, but I couldn't find anywhere something similar for xiaomi. So again, buyers beware. Otherwise is a great phone with nice performance and battery life untill the motor failed and started heating up, now I barely get 5 hours of SoT and every component from the CPU to the battery is above 43c hot.

Xiaomi actually rendered 3 of my Xiaomi phones worthless after the MiUI update rendered the phones super slow charging. The extended charging times resulted to bloated batteries and of to trash they went just a few months after the killer updates -that's 3 Xiaomi phones one after another. Never Xiaomi again, so I thought. Had LG and Samsung phones after them but guess what? LG didn't update the android Nougat of my $799 LG V20 even once (it's still on Nougat) and it has image retention that was really bad without a screen filter app running. And the Samsung, well, I never used its defective superfast charger because it sporadically just stops charging and the PRO camera mode was seriously a stupid joke. So I'm back to Xiaomi. They're all the same really. I've made peace with the fact phone manufacturers want people to keep on buying new phones every 2 years or so and the only thing that's going to stop it is worldwide regulation against planned obsolescence. Go ahead and move on with another brand, but don't ever expect you can stick with one. Learn from your mistakes - that more than the brand, the seller's reputation and after sales warranty and service and its return policy is something you have to seriously consider. Seller reputation matters more than brand names especially in countries were customer protection is very weak.

Because Xiaomi's warranty is useless. doesn't matter to how many people have an issue with the phone when xiaomi tells you to "go away and next time buy it from us." I had the G4 and went to fix it 3 times because of the motherboard, screen and battery , but you know what? it didn't bother me at all. they had authorised repair shops everywhere and my warranty was actually taken seriously.

And regarding your outmodeled Mi 9T Pro being much better than the 'trash' (in your own words) Poco F2 Pro, no need for me to disprove you again in a lengthy discussion.
It's not healthy for me? How about the multitude of non-phone owners here like you who go to extra lengths to visit this Poco F2 Pro forum just to criticize the phone they don't own while not posting anything admirable about their phone on their own phone's forum? Ok I get it. It's called sourgraping.

Your main problem is your behaviour. You behvae like typical fanboy defending something which is not healthy for your mental health. Every user in here have an opinion. Opinions here are for people to have a clue or a preview before they purchase something ans every opinion is valid. To say and defend something so blindly doesnt create room for diversity. John doesnt like the camera on that particular phone. Mark doesnt like the screen. Every opinion is valid. Personally for me this phone is overpriced for "what it has to offer". That one dude who compared iphone to samsung to huawei will find that exactly this phone model is good for his needs because he was comparing it to price, what it has to offer etc. Someone else will not include that at all in his decision but will rather check software updates policy. The third person will check something else as well. But u constantly defending something as being superior shows the behaviour as a fanboy. U are not objective at all. That is your opinion and as such it will be viewed as a opinion. Even you have revealed that with xiaomi mi max or what u phone u mentioned. That alonr states that u had couple of xiaomi phones and that u are a fanboy. I am no fan of any kind becauae its not healthy. I buy what is for me best at that moment. I had alos iphones but i were never a fanboy yo begin with. I knew exactly what android could do that iOS coudlnt. But i eas not bashing everybody else just because i had an iphone. That is just pathetic. Today i buy Xiaomi, tomorrow buy Samsung, iphone etc. Never i will defend anything. When somebody ask me whats your experience. I say like it is. Stay away from that model, this model is good model etc etc. When u a user you dont have to what to compare the only way is to experience it on your own skin. If it fails. When u work with phones u have a free experience, behind the scene experience which u are payed for. I still am fixed on my view of things. This phone has nothing to offer to me personally. And i dont have remorse. Because it would be unhealthy. Next time i will buy a phone which company is maybe totally new or i will buy an 2000$ iphone. It all depends of what the user is looking for what is his needs. Users are buying phones for they like not because of u and me. U and me are only opinions. The free experience is also a youtube review of that particular phone. U have that freedom before u buy stuff. Your behavioit is out of place!

When u see stuff how they work u will know. But u answering on every single question is hilarious. When you have a fixed view so polarized can show content there is no such thing as view angle or a rotation for u to do with your eyes. Otherwise we would have mobile screens with optional polarizer rotation for the sake of fun. The same goes for glasses. He was talking and i was talking about mobile screens not tv's. Most mobiles 95% of them dont have problem with polarizer placement. You can place them how ever u want. Flip them rotate them what ever u like. Even switch them between oems. The only difference will be the color reproduction nothing else. It will in 95% of phones not block the light.
But im guessing u will still post answers to everybody elses opinions about the main topic here. That is this particular phone. Get help!
