Otherwise, keep as far away from those horrendous Xiaomi updates like Covid19 as much as possible. You'll thank me for it!

Global stable so I haven't downloaded over OTA yet what MIUI 12.04 Global stable is offering me, please who installed this version is everything ok and what are the improvements or stay on on the current version, does it affect the battery consumption that I have for now OK after a year.

Felico, 16 Jul 2021Signal strength on top of the phone screen usually shows 4G, 4G+, Vo LTE and H+. I shall appr... moreH+ is short for HSPA+, which is still 3G but with much improved speeds. However, it's not the same as the newer 4G/4G+/LTE technology which has much higher speeds which in turn, are outperformed by the latest 5G/NR technology that offers the highest achievable mobile/wireless data speeds.
Felico, 15 Jul 2021Thanks for your explanation. I want a phone that can access data on 5G on the SIM specified f... moreYes, if you assign any sim card slot of the Poco F2 Pro to run on 5G, ('prefer 5G' or '5G/4G/3G/2G auto'), the other SIM will be turned off so you can't have dual SIM operation anymore. That's one of the horrible things about the Poco F2 Pro.
Other 5G Xiaomi phones and ALL 5G Samsung phones allow you to have 5G on one SIM and still use the other SIM simultaneously. However, you can only assign one 5G SIM at a time, and it has to be your data SIM. The other SIM can only have 4G/3G/2G if the first one is already on 5G (the data SIM). Now you can switch and have that other SIM also run 5G, but then, the first sim (previously running on 5G), will now be downgraded to 4G/3G/2G.
Both SIMs, regardless of which you choose to run 5G (with the other on 4G), will still be able to send and receive calls and text.
Finding a phone that can operate on dual SIM even if one of the SIMs is running on 5G is easy, but finding one that has a pop up selfie camera in addition to the first requirement is difficult. None of the Samsung phones and Xiaomi phones can satisfy both. The only other phone brands that offer pop up selfie cameras are mostly older Oppo, Oneplus and Vivo phones and I'm not sure if they allow you to use 2 SIMs simultaneously if you want to use 5G. They could behave like the Poco F2 Pro so better ask owners of those other phones in their respective forums if they allow dual SIM operation when one SIM is on 5G.

I shall appr... moreCorrect me if i am wrong but H+ means the HSPA plus network which is 3G plus which gives around 40mbps. And i guess the fact that the networks often shows 4g, 4g+ and h+ means the 4g network is very unstable in your area..
Signal strength on top of the phone screen usually shows 4G, 4G+, Vo LTE and H+. I shall appreciate being educated on what H+ stands for. I am assuming that others simply stand for 4G. Please correct me, experts.

I want a phone that can access data on 5G on the SIM specified for data, and also be able to receive calls and text on both SIMs. From your explanation, POCO F2 Pro cannot do this. Which phone can do this, please? I prefer a phone with pop-up selfie camera, on-screen fingerprint sensor and a screen size of at least 6.7 inches, or preferably larger.
