Surely you heard of Xiaomi. If not, you should know it’s one of the best known Chinese manufacturers of devices, including smartphones and software. Their Android interface known as MIUI, was translated and adapted for many phones and there are entire communities working solely for that purpose. MIUI is fast, looks great and offers extensive personalization options. For not use a ROM that is not available on all phone models, the community decided to talk more about MIUI. Let’s see what it gives.
For MIUI interface was chosen a solution similar to that provided by iOS. That means we have all homescreen icons arranged on different sites, without being able to access a separate menu for launching applications. Each icon has a background, which further strengthens the feeling of Apple experience. The similarities stop here because we can add widgets and homescreen and we can define the number of sites. Launcher comes with a number of widgets you can use very attractive but very easy on the personal. Very interesting is the lockscreen also integrated, providing quick access to four functions such as camera or SMS. We can define transition effects, background, sound effects and vibration.
The real piece of resistance of MIUI, which we will find either in the menu or by clicking the icon located on the homescreen dedicated, are themes. Community has worked avidly in recent years to make available an impressive amount of customization options. Themes are available for both the lockscreen and homescreen or we can choose solutions that change the whole look. We can still download backgrounds or icons through this service. It should be noted that we’re working with servers in China so that the interface has a slower download, but it worth.
MIUI is a good solution. The application which I propose, MI-Home is not exempt from problems specific to a BETA version, but the behavior differs from a phone model to another. You will make a very good idea of what Xiaomi offers and who knows, you might want to try a ROM.
