Poco F1 update: Android 10-based MIUI v220.127.116.11 causes higher battery consumption only for the first few days, company explains why
Poco F1 users received good news this week as the full version of the much-awaited Android 10-based MIUI 11 v0.6.0 has finally become available for download. However, some users who got the update early seem to be having one serious issue: their phone batteries are reportedly draining faster than normal.
Poco F1 Android 10 issues: Why the update will initially drain batteries faster
Poco India announced on Twitter earlier this week that the full global version of MIUI 18.104.22.168 for Poco F1 is available after going through a series of beta tests in the previous months. The stable beta version of the same MIUI 11 build was first offered to beta testers last week. This means that it was free of bugs enough to release it for everyone else.
This update has been highly anticipated since it is based on Android 10 and carries several MIUI changes. However, several Poco F1 users have since responded to Poco India’s announcement claiming that the update has caused their batteries to drain faster than their normal use with the previous MIUI 11 build.
Dude, I've realised after this update. Battery is draining quite sooner than in previous v22.214.171.124 build.— ಮೊಹಮ್ಮದ್ ಜುಬೈರ್ ???????? Mohammed Zuber (@mzkhateeb) March 11, 2020
One Poco F1 user claimed they notice the battery is draining even when not in use while the device is “overheating” when playing “PUBG Mobile.” More Poco F1 owners replied to the announcement tweet saying they have also noticed the battery issue after installing MIUI 126.96.36.199. Another Poco F1 user agreed that MIUI 188.8.131.52 update might be causing the battery issue and suggested to enable the device’s battery saver mode.
Hi guys with the new update, please note that the battery consumption will be on the higher side for a while as the apps optimize in the background. So request all POCO F1 users to give it atleast 2-3 days to realize the exact battery backup. https://t.co/OjG5XHDbz0— C Manmohan (@cmanmohan) March 12, 2020
Poco India general manager C Manmohan addressed the issue and explained that it should only last for two to three days since the installation of MIUI 184.108.40.206 “as the apps optimize in the background.” However, he also advised that if the issue persists after that period, Poco F1 users should immediately report through feedback app on their devices.
Poco F1 update: What’s new in the Android 10-based MIUI
