Instead of asking Xiaomi or the POCO team for more features, we should ask them to fix the basic issues such as touch issue(now it is only on the edges on my device with 8.12.27 firmware), and fix the notifications and hide notch options before moving onto new features like 60fps videos and such. It seems like the whole MIUI forum is filled with people asking for new features instead of making it stable.

Also can anyone comment on whether the touch is a hardware issue or a software one? Can it be fixed by devs of XDA?

    it's hardware related, can be fix by software but the fix for some it's not equal to others, so hard to make a universal fix...

    Not really got an announcement for you to read, but if you search here in the forums you can see that different batches of the poco ( month of fabrication)(first batch even got screen bleeding) work better with some firmware versions and others work better with different firmware version, that is related that xiaomi is trying to fix the ghost touches by changing the way screen reacts to touch, but some batches work better in a way that make lag or ultra sensitive touch in others, that happens because the screen is not build the same way hence the "different" screens ...
    Depending for what you will use the phone, that's not a really serious problem, noticeable more in some games...
    Hope i explained myself good...q

    Here are some testimony from users with different batches:
    Touch issues are there in all the pocos except the latest batches now.
    Touch issues are not severe are usable.
    Some builds fixed half issues other created half.
    If you wanna buy just buy you won't regret.
    If touch gets perfect i am more than happy if not i can still live with it happily.
    Rprpprrp ( i typed pr pr pr pr) this is issue.
    But you will become habitual within a day or two. big deal.

    Tp firmware is same for all.
    But you have different touch panel than others.
    Most of us have novatek which is sh*t.
    You are lucky user.

    Guys : Touch issue is real, face it or go for another model.
    As per this thread suggest, even if you get newer touch screen panel, there is no 100 % guarantee that touch will work fine.
    .
    Because : old panels all issues fixed from 8.11.23 beta to 8.12.20 beta, and in this period newer panels got issues.
    So they reverted that fix in 8.12.27 beta. But then again same issues are back for old panels. And newer panels are good now.
    Now old panel users are waiting for new update which includes 8.12.20 touch firmware.
    .
    So Xiaomi has fix for everyone but they don't know proper way to implement it. ( recognising both users and applying fix upon it)
    In coming days they will find it.
    And everyone will be happy.
    In worst case, you need to go service center for flashing new firmware with new bootloader which can recognize which panel you have.
    .
    So, waiting is best way for it.

    Oh that's interesting. Some people here claim that newer batches don't have the touch problem yet you seem to have the exact same issue as my unit which was assembled in July 2018. Full four months and the issue still there... That is why I don't believe there are Poco users who don't have this problem.

    Some things are a pattern: it involves all Poco f1 made in August 2018.
    8.12.27 is the latest firmware we can use.
    Any firmware which is more recent gives the black screen. So we must have a different display manufacturer.

    The only solution I see is to update vendor and firmware without the display drivers.

    From what i understood and feel by flashing almost every Pie beta & stable is, there are atleast 2 set of touch screen that Xiaomi used in POCO F1, so we are getting conflicting results/reviews in term of touch response.

    So, if you try to satisfy ones for whom touch is good enough with Pie stable of current beta build other segment will cry-out loud with issue, if you go with older beta build like 8.12.20 then people like me whose device work good enough on stable Pie will face touch issue.

    So, it's never ending game and Xiaomi should accept the hardware issue, replace & be done with it.
