[Discussion] Why no Dark Mode in Miui for Poco ( Pocophone )

I think poco team is playing game with us . As the successor of pocophone is about to come ( as per some leaks in weibo ) so dev team paused the development of poco f1 s firmware.


Asked alvyn tse several times about the dark mode , he is giving excuses everytime.

But today Redmi Note 7 got miui update which includes dark mode.

Well its priced half of poco f1, its a lower mid range device by redmi. Alvyn tse said due to resources allocation issue the dev team is unable to provide dark mode in poco.

Now i am pretty much clear about poco teams intention.
They achieved their sales fig of f1 so its development becomes so slow.

Xiaomi, slowly showing its true color.


Added some ss of Redmi Note 7 latest update as a reference.

Dear mods please don't post replies to defend.
We have invested our money, we have the right to ask/speak about what we shoud deserve.

Well, anyone buying a Pocophone shouldn't have expected any updates or bug fixes when you're buying a phone with a couple percent profit margin.

When did you get answers that are saying unable to provide dark mode?
Yes, it is true that he mentioned that will not provide dark mode before but not now.
Recently, he mentioned that dark mode is in a plan but no specific release date for now.
Actually, there is a codebase regarding dark mode in current beta but disabled. Maybe because of some problems.
So this means, POCO will get dark mode in some day but we do not know when.
Also, since POCO has dark mode codebase in current beta you can enable it by using installing Google Message and enable dark mode in its settings. But only some UI elements become dark.
Or you can apply dark/black theme so the UI becomes dark.

It will not release to all regions. The devs will release new update next month with Qualcom's patch + improvement in 10.3.4.0 + some improvements in current beta.
Maybe this is because of some bugs like echo during call.
You can install it manually or by changing region to India.

Please refer these threads for more information.

It's in EU ROM only, AFAIK. Not the global version. EU is a custom ROM based on Mi8's China ROM, so it has extra features, but POCO only has Global ROM officially.

Cheers! :-)
