The Chinese manufacturer has officially announced that it will begin to fight advertising in its shell and significantly reduce its display. According to the Android Police, the most affordable flagship of Pocophone F1 is simply "crowded" with ads on MIUI – it's shown to users in built-in settings, notifications, and applications.

  • The number of ad units in MIUI has been reduced.
  • Remove intrusive ad units in notifications.
  • The built-in browser will show 2-3 times less advertising.
  • Users will have more control, pause the display, and close the advertising banners.
