POCOPHONE F1

[Other] The frequency of POCO F1 Stable update will be decrease.

This is a timeline of POCO F1 Stable Update from MIUI 10.
10.0.4.0(Oreo) - 1st, November, 2018
10.0.6.0(Oreo) - 17th, November, 2018
10.1.3.0(Pie) - 10th December, 2018
10.2.2.0(Pie) - 22nd, January, 2019
10.2.3.0(Pie) - 13th, March, 2019
10.3.4.0(Pie) - 10th, April, 2019
* These timeline are based on official release date(not date of Beta Stable release) and may not accurate. For, 10.3.4.0, it did not release in some regions since each region has own tests and there is some critical bug in some regions.

As you can see on timeline, POCO team had offered Stable update for POCO F1 users frequently(usually once a month) and they did their best to give us the best exprience by giving awesome features like 4K&1080P 60FPS, Widevine L1, 960FPS Slow motion,  etc.

However, I saw quite sad news just while ago that the frequency of POCO F1 Stable update will be decreased. (You can refer to here https://twitter.com/atytse/status/1118486391581741057 ) Maybe, (just my guess) this is because of the frequency of MI 8 Stable might decrease since it has already passed 1 year from its launch date and POCO F1 will be affected since both devices share code-base. (They are family devices)

Even though, the frequency of stable update will decrease the things that sure is, POCO team will continue to try to offer us the best exprience and offer beta update once a week. So Please do not be very disappointed.

If there is a new news regaring POCO F1, I will share them to this community.

So now every stable ROM user must come to beta version if they want optimised ROM.

You shouldn't also forget the array of MIUI 9 based Stable updates that came from 9.6.14.0 (release) to 9.6.25.0., all of which came within the first 2 months. But we should also understand that the normal update cycle of Stable ROM is 30-60 days. If that was the case, then we would have received 3 or 4 updates till now. But we have received 9 or 10 Stable updates. That's not the case with other devices, even with Mi8 which it is based on.

Plus, the updates had found delays due to holidays and others during the later part of the timeline. That, considering the amount of new features and bug fixes they included, makes it worth the wait. I wouldn't really say that the frequency is getting lower, but it is getting close to a near- perfect device (of course, there are still some prominent bugs). So the task of updating a good device to make it better gets even harder. You know the saying; if it ain't broke, don't fix it. It's the same philosophy.

I really don't care about the update frequency, as long as the updates are worthy enough and comes with less bugs. I think that's what both the devs and users should focus on. But users always demand more and more, making devs push out uncooked ROMs which users would rant even more with. So with less and stabler updates, it's a win for both the devs and users, IMHO.

Also, Alvin tweeted about updates based on Pie. We will still see Android Q and MIUI 11 based updates soon enough.

Cheers! :-)

I don't think so..
because beta roms might have unexpected bug so it might better to stay in Stable.

I haven't found any severe bug till now, also one who has bought this phone just for playing game purpose. I don't think they would wait for so long to get a optimised touch experience on stable instead they will go on rampage.

I know that they offer lots of updates first two month but did not include those update because that was unusual case since the device just launched ( have to optimize device) and they did not offer that much update after that.
And of course, I know that POCO will get Android Q & MIUI 11 and did not mention that POCO will not get these.
The one thing I want to say is the frequency of update will be decrease just like other old devices.

Yes, Agree.
But since each users have their own preference so it is not good to recommend beta roms to all users.

Well, MIUI 9 updates were relevant too. It was the most polished versions out there. Most users still prefer the first set of updates in terms of optimization and battery life. Also, it enabled many features including face unlock to many countries. After that, nothing much has changed in terms of face unlock supported regions.

But yes, the frequency will obviously be lower than before, as is the case with any device. But that doesn't mean the development support will be any less. After all, updates doesn't really mean a better device. We all know how bad updates can be, right? Let them take time to push updates and as long as they are worth enough, I'm good with that.

Cheers! :-)

Quality VS Quantity. Higher frequency of updates may not mean a better improvement. I believe so long each updates provides a greater usage experiences, that's good enough.
