[Video proof] Xiaomi Poco F1 touch issues fixed, user claims
Ever since its launch, one of the biggest issue with Xiaomi’s Snapdragon 845-powered Pocophone F1 (or Poco F1 as it’s called in India) has been related to its touch screen. There have been complaints about touch sensitivity not being optimal as well as multi-touch scenarios not being handled properly.
For its part, Xiaomi had said some of these touch issues are being looked into. That was sometime back, and sadly, the problem still persists. However, the latest development on this front suggests a fix to Poco F1 touch screen issues will be available soon.
According to a Poco F1 user, the touch problems have been fixed by the Chinese company, just that the fix isn’t publicly available yet.
The user says they shared a video of touch issues directly with Xiaomi through the feedback app in Poco F1. And they were contacted by a company engineer, who shared some firmware patches and asked the user to test things again. The user says one of the patch worked, meaning after applying that patch, the touch issues they were facing didn’t appear.
As a proof, the user shared two videos: first one showcases the touch problems they were facing, and second one shows the problems not being reproducible after applying the patch. Here are the videos in question:
As you’d expect, the user refused to share the patch with others. So there’s no concrete info that proves whatever this user is saying is true, but then there’s also no evidence that suggests otherwise. To lend more wight to their claim, the user also shared an excerpt of their WhatsApp chat with the Xiaomi developer.
So, while it does appear the Poco F1 touch problems have been fixed internally, the company may take some more time before rolling the fix out to everyone as the solutions needs to tested extensively. Here’s hoping that happens sooner than later. And rest assured, we’ll let you know as and when that happens.
