Remove SD Maid, because the built-in cleaner / optimizer is perfect and SD Maid was useless.

1 ) Remove Kaspersky.
I use the built-in Antivirus, with real-time control and the ability to choose between databases: Avast, AVL, and Tencent.
The other functions of KIS such as Block app, Call Blocker, block for privacy and anti-theft I got all from built-in features of ANDROID8/MIUI.

2) Replaced Adguard with Blokada

You got it already? They are fast at xiaomi...
Yes. He arrived tonight through OTA. It was available for some weeks in the factory image to Flashing version, but I wanted to wait for the official OTA release (safer)

Sony are slow, because they optimize a lot for low resource/battery usage...

Disregarding the price, can the Poco stand a chance against OnePlus 6?

Chipset, Processor, and GPU are the same for both phones. Updates are quick for both. Oneplus has a slightly better camera thanks to the optical stabilizer. On the other hand, PocoF1 has expandable memory and a better battery. I think that Poco is a worthy rival.
