The F1’s plastic build is more prone to scratches than other phones, so I recommend you use the latter. If there’s one area where the Poco F1 “skimps” on, it’s hardware materials. Most flagships nowadays use either glass or metal, but the F1 goes for plastic all around. I don’t mind that; it’s less slippery than glass and warmer to the touch than metal. Plus, the matte firmware files finish feels nice, the silver painted rim gives a believable illusion of metal, and the dark blue/indigo color I have is unique without being too flashy. There are small annoying changes throughout the software that detract from the overall experience. There’s very little place on the left of the notch and Xiaomi decided to show zero notification icons there (MIUI 10 stable and below) or briefly show then hide them (MIUI 10 beta).
- After rebooting the phone, the device was LOCKED by Xiaomi and needed to be unlocked with the MI Account name and password.
- Some ‘branches’ are more robust than others and are more prominent and healthier.
- Unfortunately, Android Oreo’s color management system has only been adopted by a few device makers so far.
- Again, charge the phone to at least 50% so that the flashing process will not be interrupted by low battery.
- Remember that running the stock firmware for your phone is not the same as running stock Android itself—it still includes the skin, apps, and other tweaks your phone’s manufacturer has added.
- It has a separate settings panel called Blissify from where you can change almost everything.
