The Xiaomi Poco F1 (review) has a nasty surprise. Despite having a Full HD display, it doesn’t let you stream high definition content over Netflix or Amazon Prime. The information came in last week when a blog called Android Pure noticed Netflix videos don’t have the HD sign on top of the content it presents in that quality. The story, unfortunately, is not a new one. It was similar to what was found in the OnePlus 5 and 5T last year. The problem gets further compounded because the fix isn’t as simple as sending a new OTA update. OnePlus had to recall the units back to apply the required certification to allow HD streaming. Upon investigating, it became clear that most (if not all) Xiaomi devices cannot play HD content from these streaming services. The Mi Mix 2, the Mi A2, the Redmi Note 5 Pro, the Mi 5, even though all of them have the displays to support full HD videos. What is the issue then?
