MIUI 12 Review
MIUI 12 puts the privacy of it’s individual users on a pedestal. It comes with security fixes that work incredibly well and makes it easier to spot all the apps that have access to important permissions. You can play around with the modern animations making the interface more fun and even the battery usage charts are animated. The resizable floating windows that show over the apps come in handy. The Dark Mode 2.0 definitely meets perfection along with the collection of amazing wallpapers. The new navigation gestures have a lot of options such as sliding out of the notification panel to turn it into a window which can easily be dragged to the side thereby creating an effect of split-screen. MIUI 12 can automatically sort your folders according to specific categories with the built-in File Manager which is quite useful when you are someone who does an array of works that need to be classified. Being in an age where mental health is the top priority, the MIUI 12 comes with a Focus Mode which lets you take occasional breaks by excluding the camera and dialer of your phone. It also has an excellent health tracker that can keep you fit. Considering all these factors, MIUI 12 is much better than MIUI 11.
