    If you are ok with ads being pushed to you because its a cheap phone, then fine. I have a different point of view.
    I dont want to sell myself for getting a good hardware at cheap price.

    Miui has become too intrusive ads wise .
    Will switch to lineage on my mi5 .
    My Mi max 2 still has no official lineage release .

    https://forum.xda-developers.com/poco-f1 - starting point for all POCO F1 - this is the xda sub forum dedicated to the device.

    You will need to unlock the BL, using mi flash tool. then, follow the steps to the ROM you would prefer.

    poco F1 if you like camera more. gcam in poco is really good. both of them should be fine but you'll be getting a brand new phone for 20k in case of poco

    Unless you need a OnePlus, the poco is the better bet.

    Poco is definitely VFM and competes with other flagship phones..

    Couple of queries..

    Is LineageOS officially available for poco ?
    May be am not clear about this official/unofficial builds, but I could only see unofficial in xda-developers..

    Will bootloader unlock / custom rom flash void warranty ?

    And few reviews in flipkart says about touch screen glitch and screen bleeding.. Any more info/experience ?

    Lineage os official or not, doesn't matter. Even now there is oxygen is port also available

    Unlocking the bootloader won't void warranty

    Yes, screen bleeding present, but not that much. Touch issue is no longer present

    Official just means that there is a maintainer for the device vs community support. I would not read much into it, plus I am going to flash PE.

    Thanks for info..
    I feel like day by day devices are getting locked down.. without proper source release and bootloader unlock procedures..
    gone are the old days of booloader unlock with just 'fastboot oem unlock'..
    Now we need to register, request, wait for unlock code/use desktop app for unlock..

    It's still the same, That command use to work on Nexus devices where u don't need the permission now it works with Oneplus phones no permission required.

    With MI it was always like that leaving the 1S if I remember correctly.

    I remember xiaomi started this nonsense from Note 3 release. Official reason was that chinese resellers were selling xiaomi phones by install malware laced roms before shipping to Europe/USA so they wanted to stop that so they introduced this online verification to unlock bootloader.

    But its buggy as hell. Some people didnt get access to their bootloader for months
