I didn't have WiFi issue on mine but my phone has been running with WiFi Assistant OFF ever since. If your WiFi-router has just turned off by itself, it could be flagged as unreliable and reconnection might be less-favored.
Also if you wanted to have better WiFi scanning, you should disable "WiFi scan throttling" in developer options, it is ON by default.

Worst battery life..Battery goes down within a span of 7 months..just one month after the warranty period..replacing the battery with the original one is not economical with high cost and less warranty...replacing the screen glass also expensive as it needs to change the whole display set.. Not at all cost effective and will not be recommended...

i have had the update to android 10 back in early february. miui version was 11.0.4.0 QEJMIXM. i have not received notification yet for update yet to 11.0.6.0. i was using an rog phone 2 as a daily driver then but i have sold it so i am back to the f1 for a week now.

if you get notification for 11.0.4.0, I would suggest to skip it as 11.0.6.0 should be coming around soon. 11.0.4.0 is a bit buggy, but nothing that affects the performance of the phone- since day 1 still having more than 8 hours of screen on time, no ghost touch, and still good for gaming (though of course not as good as my previous rog phone 2). issue is merely cosmetics- the battery indicator on the top left hand corner turns black whenever you change themes or to dark mode/light mode. the issue persists for a few hours but corrects itself after.

on the positive note, the earpiece sounds a bit louder when playing stereo sound to balance it a bit with the main speaker. i am not noticing any change in the loudness of the main speaker, and the stereo sound, even surround sound, is now perceptible. i also used to have a fequent problem with with image retention on the screen, especially when displaying anything white then going into a darker image, but it seem to have lessened (not totally gone) after the update. the system-wide dark mode is just meh, i mean at least it applies it to majority of apps even third party ones, but there are some system apps that do not follow with the dark theme.

Just updated to new version. It reappeared this morning. So far so good. It applies system wide dark mode to all the apps. Feb security patch

I bought Pocophone F1 128Gb on 31st August 2018. I remember the date because that my country's Independence Day. I never update the firmware and turn off all automatic update in all levels of settings. I am still on the out-of-the-box factory firmware.

I'm happy to report that even to this day, 12th March 2020 my Pocophone F1 stills boot within the first 4 rounds of booting cursor bar, holds up charge for more than a day including 2 hours of pubg on highest possible setting and no problem whatsoever on wifi, low volume, frame loss while gaming. No issues on Dji Fly app and super smooth video transmission when flying my mavic mini.

Imho Pocophone F1 is a God-send smartphone catering to pro-user that wants a reliable, robust (I use a phone cover with raised bumpers on the corner like g-shock watches) and have dropped the Pocophone F1 countless times, powerful smartphone at a very reasonable price.

My relationship with Pocophone is a win/win experience.
