Hello guys, I want to tell you the adjustments that I have made to my Poco F3 and that have improved the battery consumption.
For those who have a very high battery consumption in principle with the Poco F3 inactive, I recommend doing this before starting step 1:
Reinstall the rom again, we go to Settings / About the phone / Miui version, where the number 12 is, we press and at the top in the 3 points we download the last package, which is the one we have, we reinstall it and we start with step 1 .

I would be grateful if you could comment on how things went with them. Greetings.

1.- DEACTIVATE AUTOMATIC UPDATES.

In this way we will avoid that the mobile is constantly looking for updates and therefore consuming battery.
1.1- We go to the Play Store and in Settings / General / Update applications automatically, we mark not update applications automatically.
1.2- Once this is done, we go to the Miui updates. We follow the route Settings / About the phone, click on the number 12 that is in the upper left as when we want to update
and then in the three points that appear in the upper right, we go to the update settings option and deactivate download automatically.

2.- DEACTIVATE THE WIFI ASSISTANT.

This option allows the mobile to automatically change the network, without us having to be aware of it, but it uses the battery unnecessarily. We are going to configure it to do it manually.
We follow the path Adjust / Wifi / Wi-Fi Assistant, enter and deactivate the option to select the best networks automatically.

3.- DEACTIVATE THE GAME TURBO.

This option is aimed at those users who do not use the phone to play, if so, deactivate it because it uses a lot of battery. I do not play much, rather little, even so I do not have it deactivated.
We go to Settings and in the search bar type game turbo. Mark the 2nd option that of Game Turbo Security, it will take you to the app, once inside, mark options that are next to the + sign, at the top right. Once inside, uncheck the Game Turbo option, it is the first.

4.-DEACTIVATE THE PRINTING SERVICES.

We have these services to connect to printers active all the time and the phone will be constantly looking for printers so that we can connect.
We go to Settings and at the top in the search bar we will write print. Click on the only option that comes out, now click on System printing services, once inside we will deactivate it. We will see that on the screen below, we have a blue bar with a text that says looking for printers in this way we prevent it from constantly searching.

5.-REMOVE BLOATWARE:

I have removed the following but it depends on each one, they could remove more.

OTHER ADDITIONAL SETTINGS.

Let's go Developer Options.

-Registry Buffer Size, I have it set to 1 mega.
-Window animation level / Transitions animation level / Transition duration level. All three are by default at 1x, lower them to 0.5x.
-Display: Manual brightness, almost full, in dark mode
-Screen / Color scheme in Saturated.
-Screen / IA image engine, here both IA HDR enhancement and MEMC I have them activated, although they increase consumption they are worth it, the screen improves, both visually and in video viewing.

New edition on 04-22-2021: In addition to the previous additional settings, the refresh rate of the screen can also be lowered from 120Hz to 90Hz, you can see it here:

Battery consumption tonight, I left it charged at 100% and spent 3%. I never put it in airplane mode, always with the wifi activated, but I deactivate bluetooth and gps, which I activate again in the morning, I also clean all apps that are open in background.

Muchas gracias spiral5 por tu aportación.

Hoy se actualizó mi Poco F3 (tenía problema de batería) y parece que ahora tengo problemas que no informa bien, porque desde las 8:30 cargado y solo me muestra un 99%. Esto es de locos.

Le he quitado de todo conforme has comentado (aparte de la cuenta Mi antes de leerte) pero me gustaría saber si todo el bloatware que has puesto se puede eliminar "legalmente" o has debido usar herramienta adicional ADB o similar.

De nuevo, muchas gracias por tu aportación! ni me podía imaginar que tuviera esto un servicio de impresión también... joder...

Thank you very much spiral5 for your contribution.

Today my Poco F3 was updated (it had a battery problem) and it seems that now I have problems that it does not report well, because since 8:30 it loaded and it only shows me 99%. This is crazy.

I have removed everything as you have commented (apart from the Mi account before reading you) but I would like to know if all the bloatware that you have put can be eliminated "legally" or you have had to use an additional ADB tool or similar.

Again, thank you very much for your input! I couldn't even imagine that this had a printing service too ... damn ...

Pongo ejemplos del "antes" y el "después", por cierto, a falta de quitar algún bloatware adicional...

La stats del "despúes" ponen menos de 3h, pero es porque reinicié para ver si se había quedado enganchado algún proceso que mire la batería, porque no me creo qu edesde las 8:30 esté así.

MOD EDIT: English Translation Below

I put examples of "before" and "after", by the way, in the absence of removing some additional bloatware ...

The "after" stats put less than 3h, but it is because I restarted to see if a process that looks at the battery had been hooked, because I do not believe that it is like this since 8:30.

Second post (April 20th 15:27):
"Before" and "After" screenshots (before clean all bloatware)

I don't believe that after 7 hours it has 99% battery left. Stats was reseted after reboot (I rebooted the phone because I couldn't believe that stats).



Update (today):
27'5h uptime, 62% battery left. Soooo coool.

You can use Xaiomi ADB fastboot tools, the bloatware that I put is the one that I deleted, but maybe you don't need as much or maybe you need to delete more, in the program you get a list that you can remove without problems. Greetings.

here we go again this night.

Ok, I've still not delete the rest of apps, but it drains as before patch.

I close all apps before going to bed.

What's going on with you, Xiaomi?

I'll report after deletion...

My phone seems to be erratic again.

Just restart the phone at 7:00 and it returns to be ok.

Come on, Miui!

I set energy behaviour to some apps (closing them 10 min after been in background), I follow all the instructions here... it's annoying.

Ah, last Saturday I made a Hard Reset to restart all the things to do and I found this windows:

1619426056293.png


That's for me a better way to see battery consumption. I forgot to disable system apps and I think that's an old screen for battery stats, right? :/

I already have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder with this!

    People doing the debloating thing first time might want to DEACTIVATE the packages rather than UNISTALLING them. I say this because if anything breaks in the MIUI after debloating you can always try to find and enable the package that broke it.

    I do this. I DEACTIVATE the bloated apps, use the phone for 3 4 days and if there are no issues I UNINSTALL them.

    aha , a custom rom , its strange that a custom rom performs better than stock batterywise , my previous experience is stock > custom for battery , but damn that 1 hour 30 mins more SOT is really tempting (mine baerly reaches 6 hours , i just got my poco 2 days ago and im not planing voiding the warranty just now
    Bro i applied for the bootloader unlock the day i got the phone. Thats how much i love xiaomi.eu. It is basically miui with all bloatware removed and with Chinese theme store which is much better than the global one imo. It also has volume boost tweak which is one of the main reasons for me to switch because otherwise the headphone volume is really low. The most important reason however for me is wallpaper carousel which lets me put anime wallpapers on lockscreen and refreshes them whenever i unlock the phone. In fact, that is the main reason why i prefer xiaomi phones over other companies because no other phone has this feature yet as far as i know.
