Based on the impressive performance of the Xiaoma model Pocophone F1 on the North American market for around 300 dollars, Linus has managed to do without extra investment almost "flegship device" from "fighter shotgun".
Despite the praise for the hardware components of the Pocophone F1, Linus found out wrong with Xiaomo's MIUI Interface for Andronid, citing one of the disadvantages of deliberately lowering camera performance so that this device could not compete with more classical devices from the same manufacturer.
Therefore, he decided to "flash" the Android Android on Pocophone and then install the Android-based Open Source, LineageOS operating system. This software is otherwise supported by many manufacturers of world-wide mobile devices and is available in around 185 different models, including OnePlus, Nexus and Google Pixel.
Therefore Linus decided to show that with this process an excellent and affordable smartphone, with some software mastering, could be something that corresponds to a much stronger and three times more expensive phlegip phone like the Google Pixel 3XL.
After the installation of the new operating system, additional software and applications saw "flegship killer" identical to the flegship he "killed".
Linus says that the Pocophone camera has improved its performance and now has a better and more pronounced edge detection when shooting a portrait.
As the negative side of this "intervention", Linus says, in addition to taking some time to complete the entire process after you install LineageOS, unlock the device by face detection with the front camera stopped working and there is the possibility that the owner of Xiaoma's "cup" This will lose the warranty on your device.
How did the whole process of "converting" Xiaomi Pocophone F1 to Google Pixel 3 XL appear in the video.
