Greetings MIUI'ers,

Welcome to the 51th edition of the MIUI Weekly Poll.

Last week we discussed "Bigger Battery Is Now Obligatory In A Flagship?"

Here are the poll results:
Screenshot from 2017-11-12 08-55-36.png

Some of the best replies:
Battery capacity and overall performance is one of the key features that I look for when purchasing a new phone! That decision overall allows me to choose whether or not I want a phone that will perform with the daily rigorous tasks that I use this for, and mostly keep up with my demands as a power user.
Flagship devices tend to be power hungry. So, there should be increase in battery capacity to power the devices and last at least until a day
No! Current battery capacity is enough with fast charge.

We Should Focus On Energy Efficiency Rather Than Battery Capacity In The Future



This week we will discuss messenger apps but specifically iMessenger, Apple's well know messenger app. Google have make a few messenger apps over the years, Gtalk, Hangouts,Duo and Allo are just some of them. While Google have renamed and reinvented and redeveloped Apple seem to have stuck with iMessenger and gradually add to it or improved it.

iMessenger does have a range of features but one of the main things that makes it stand out from the others is the ability to seamlessly send SMS messages over data if both users have iMessenger installed. iMessenger links to you Apple ID and can run on any Mac device delivering your messages as needed. Apple have also linked Apple Pay to iMessenger allowing for the quick and easy sending of money between Apple users.

If you look at messenger apps there are too many to list, apps like WhatsApp, Telegram, Allo, QQ, Wechat, Line and Viber all allow you to send messages via data on WiFi or cellular data at low cost if you are paying for data usage or free if you have a high enough or limitless data option, the only limitation if everyone you message has to install and setup the same messenger app.

The question is, is it better for Android to make one complete messenger app that overall integrates all the phones messaging and more as well as comes preinstalled and competes with Apple's iMessenger or is this simply more bloat since the existing apps are already available?

Does Android need a iMessage Rival!
Take part in the poll and let us know your choice and what you think!

No need..
Because we have too many options for this..
If Android truly will add this feature, it is just simply adding more Bloatwares..

No, /i  don't think Android needs a consolidated messaging app. For me the appeal of android is you can pick the solution that best fits you. So, for that reason.... there is no NEED for a consolidated app when you can pick the best use solutions. Besides IPhone users from my experience typically has some issue with imessage when messaging with someone on a different platform.

Yes definitely because it's save storage than many messaging apps and also only one application is being used it's efficient also in the RAM so no problem in slowing down of phone.

atleast most of my friends or almost all use WhatsApp and my communication is mostly through that. so having another seperate Messaging app is of No use. A consolidated app where i can get a view of amm my sms Messaging or hangouts or whatsapp in a single view and if i was able to review them and relly back like instant notification messages, would be a lot helpful

yes why not !!!  android needs consolidated messenger app.  for now we require different apps for different purpose and in low end android device memory is the biggest factor. if consolidated messenger app integrated in android then there is hope to free some space for 1 or 2 another apps

Yes, Android need a consolidated messenger app. Not one, not too many, but we need few consolidated apps.
The purpose is to avoid monopoly and giant control by a single mother company. We need few different consolidated apps in order to create healthy competition and make differences for choice.

iMessage Rival is a good thing. But one consolidated app for messaging isn't a good idea. Competition is the mother of invention.

As we have got numerous apps for messaging, I don't think we need a dedicated feature from messaging app. It will be good to have, but not a highly necessary feature.
I would suggest spending time on something else which can enhance the usage and performance of the operating system.

Android needs a consolidated android message app that trumps the feature set of imessage. Making it two just messes up our messaging services. I think that situation gives android the fragmemented image.

No. Android is an all inclusive OS, it does not need to create a rival. What it needs is consolidating the current messengers.

Sounds like it's up for Google to decide. With many manufacturers making their own Android system for their phones, it's not going to be easy to unite unlike little number of Apple devices. Considering security and accessibility, I vote for Android better stick with current messaging apps that already exist. It's less vulnerable to hackers that way imo since users are split into many messaging apps.

I think it will be awesome for Android to create a consolidate messenger that can rival that of iMessager... it's really annoying to have so many messenger just because one need to connect to others, eg, not all my friends uses WhatsApp, imo, Facebook, qq.
if there is a robust consolidation for Android messenger... it will help in so many ways likes reduce the number of messengers installed, which will inturn reduce data usage, memory space and increases performance.

I said yes but the really answer would be: please Google, give us a united version, not 30000 differents apps that does the same but differently; ex. Google Hangout; Google Allo; Google Duo; Google Messenger; etc.

Yes we need. So we can chat with others through default-integrated Android messaging app.
For example, I need to use different chat apps just to chat with my friends from other countries. I use we chat or qq to chat with Chinese. WhatsApp, viber or Vkontakte to chat Russian. Imo for my friends in Saudi Arabia. Guess what? I end up installing many different chat app to communicate with my friends across the globe in private chat.
Don't ask why I didn't use Facebook or any other major social media 😁

Yes Android need to have this as pre-installed app and implement this in Android 4.4 and above, not just the latest one. And all Android users will be able to communicate through their contact list. Make it available in desktop version too so we don't have to install other messaging apps to chat via PC.
