The only thing that has questioned the recent top-of-the-range Xiaomi home, such as the Mi 8 series and the latest best buy POCOPHONE F1, was the adoption of the notch. Dissent does not come for an aesthetic but functional speech, as there is one at the software level failure to optimize notification managementor rather these are not shown at all in the status bar. Many have opted for the purchase of other terminals just for this reason and then this is one thing that has agreed all reviewers on a global scale.
But good news comes for the owners of these terminals, and therefore also for Xiaomi in a sense, as from now it is possible through the use of third-party applications see the notifications in the status bar, or better, below the notch. A solution certainly not really professional but still effective. What you will have to do is get the two applications named KLWP Live Wallpaper Maker, available free on the Play Store and finally the application Super Notch that you can download from this link.
I will not go into the merits of the application that allows a series of customizations, but to proceed in the best way with the possibility of viewing notifications on the Mi 8 and POCOPHONE F1 series, we recommend proceed with the purchase of the PRO version of the KLWP Live Wallpaper Maker app, at the cost of 3,99 €, or search the internet for a way to get it for free (shhh ... I did not tell you), so you can load the custom presets of the Super Notch application.

Once you have completed these steps you will need to open the KLWP app LiveWallpaper Maker e grant all permissions. Later you will have to open the Super Notch app and select the preset that most inspires you (it will open automatically KLWP). Now you have to save the configuration granting all permissions.You can look at the photos below to realize the final result and above all choose the preset that best suits your needs.
