Stop repeating it over and over again here like the defect is a widespread issue because its not. Doing so is not productive. Filing a dispute in the online site's resolution center will do more.

So whole point is in Xiaomi.
Anyway, thanks for the post.

Only the newest flagship phones from Samsung (Galaxy S series and Galaxy Note series) get updated monthly. And of course other flagship phones from Nokia, Sony, and Oneplus because they don't have plenty of phone models to update.
If fast updates are your main priority, Google's own Pixel phones and Android One phones are your only choice. My Mi A3 gets regular monthly security updates but it isn't immune to delays when there are major Android version software updates. The goid thing about it is, it gets monthly security updates even if it may get delayed Android version updates.
Only worldwide regulation will force Android phone manufacturers to provide updates promptly to all Android phones regardless of price range. And even that (worldwide regulation) is wishful thinking.
Stex, 05 Jul 2020If u dont need high refresh screen rate, then Poco all the way.Thanks. I like it too.

No updates for EU version, still April security patch, no MIUI12 at all. Whats wrong with Xiaomi? 470€ device no updates for 90+ days...

I'm telling you to report your bad experience with your local consumer agencies. Open a dispute with the online shopping site's resolution center. Have your phone repaired by another repair shop (not Xiaomi). After doing all of those, accept things you can't change. Just charge it to experience. Buy a new phone from another brand. Enjoy it and share good experiences in the new phone's forum. You'll be surprised at how much happier and more productive you can be.

You don't even read my comments and you already have an opinion.
I'll repeat myself not for you but for who might be in a similar situation:
Xiaomi says on their website that if the phone was purchased from EU you are able to claim warranty in any country in EU.
But when you will try to claim warranty they will tell you that you can't.
And stop bashing people for having different opinions than you
My comments are not for you, but for people to whom might be useful.
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2020Do experience any framedrops when gaming especially pubg and how warm can go? No not at all... 0% heating & frame drop issues
I played call of duty for hours & i have never experienced any problem, i don't play pubG
Best phone, highly recommend
ATM my F2 pro losing mobile signal (4G) completely, signal logo dim with cross mark. This is the second time. The 1st time it happened few days ago, I just restarted and used normally. My other phone with same network with strong signal. All two times f2 pro turn off signal when it on the table. Wifi still function as normal. I use 01 sim only.
I'm opening sim tray, and the sim is very intact no sign of losing. Thinking of moving the sim to sim2 tray.

Im commenting from F2 pro.. I must say its a best budget flagship phone of 2020 😍
Really speedy, snappy & Buttery...
Its Display is just Amazing, very colorful & bright
Watching video on it is an amazing experience
Only things missing in it is 120 or at least 90HZ display along with stereo speakers... Thought its single bottom speaker is very loud that it fill up front speakers absence...
Its battery life is its real charm... Im getting 8+ hours of screen on time with 24 hours of total backup..
& it takes only one hour for 0 to 100% as well
Its a real worth of money & im sharing my honest experience

by buying the global variant , would there be any band problems.
I stay in India and I'm having a thought of buying this phone but there is no Indian retail unit.
So would I have no problems in network area
garcy, 01 Jul 2020absolutely killer flagship phone of the year... everything about this is outstandingYes, certainly. Except for a few quirks - MIUI is so aggressive at battery saving and RAM usage that it keeps on killing apps that are supposed to continuously run in the background - example: clock widgets and other apps that you want permanently running in the foreground and regularly updated in real time as screen overlay or as background app. (Ex. Nova launcher gesture for recents always loses its 'accessibility services' permission when changing launchers or restoring from saved layouts (saved backup). These are I guess the most annoying MIUI quirks present you never have to deal with in LG, Samsung, and many other near-stock or stock android. It can be infuriating if you don't know how to keep apps in memory in MIUI: It's a rather convoluted, multi-step process that requires digging in to the settings menu and recents: 1. Enable autostart, 2. Long press and padlock the app in the recents and don't ever swipe it out, and 3. Disable battery optimization (set to 'don't optimize') for the app. In addition, (step #4) you have to kill the app everytime it loses accessibility permission in order to enable back that permission - otherwise, its a repetitive futile attempt to get back the lost permission(s).
Oh, and that half baked Widevine L1 certification: It enables high definition playback on the phone screen itself which is a RARITY in Xiaomi phones and other China made phones (Oneplus, Lenovo, Oppo, Vivo, Realme), but then screen sharing on the big screen tv causes the phone's screen to scramble (you'll need to force reboot the phone everytime it happens - be WARNED!). It happens everytime you attempt to wirelessly screen share/mirror the phone while a DRM encoded content (Ex. Netflix offline movie downloads) is actively running on the phone's screen. It screen shares OK when content shared is not DRM encoded, but then even when it does screen share non protected content, successfully, you get a smaller windowed screen on your tv with black bars all around for most content! I sure hope Xiaomi fixes it in a software update and learn how to do wireless screen sharing correctly from Samsung (Samsung calls it 'Smart share': phone screen adjusts its display area to 16:9 to match its display to properly mirror content to 16:9 tv's without wasteful black bars all around. For now, the workaround is to download an app called 'SecondScreen' from Google playstore and use it to correct aspect ratio problems arising from phones with non-16:9 screens projecting to tv's with 16:9 screen.
Also, really wished this phone had micro sd card expansion and micro sd card encryption. Missed my 512GB card so much which I can't use on this phone.
Overall though, the Poco F2 Pro still is a great phone for the price and I have no regrets buying it. The speed, fluidity and overall experience (all screen display that is completely flat and devoid of ugly notches and punch holes) and superb connectivity (even its 4G has better signal speed/stability/capability), and the camera especially with GCam with Night Sight is more than enough for me to compensate for its shortcomings. And it's got an IR blaster and headphone jack too! Sadly, no FM radio. Highly recommended phone especially for those who don't care about lack of storage expansion or those who don't screen share offline Netflix downloads to tv and would rather watch them on the phone's gorgeous punch hole free, notch free screen.
Anonymous, 02 Jul 2020Yes the serial number should match. But be sure it's a sealed box. That way you are sure ... moreYes I will make sure it's the original one when I go to the store, I will just make sure both imei match, and it will be fine, because these are chinese phones I am always worried.

That way you are sure it came straight from the factory and is not used, returned unit, demo unit or refurbished unit sold as brand new.
