Most of Poco F1 users had expected that Android 10 update for the phone will be next to MIUI 12, but this is not what happened, and instead the latest system update was still with MIUI 11. Even Redmi Note 8 Pro, which joined the Mi Pilot program at the same time with the Poco, its users got the latest interface update more than a month ago.

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). There is a lot to like about MIUI, especially the multiple added customizations and features.
