Hi Friends

Buying a new Mi device for the first time is a mixture of excitement and impatience. The new UI, OEM exclusives features, hours of search in blogs/forum for tips/tricks/tweaks, especially if you changed from a boring interface to a completely different interface than the one you're used to. However, these little surprises can turn into frustration and annoyance really quickly if we’re not a fan of the new features. That’s why I’m going to show you how to deactivate five stock options that drive us mad.

1. Deactivate touch response sounds and vibrations

sound.jpg

When I’m using a smartphone for the first time there are few things such as removing touch/haptic feedback, so it’s always the first thing I have to turn off. Besides, it doesn't take a genius to turn it off. Should you need assistance, you can always refer to [MIUI Class Vol. 9] Wanna Extend Your Battery Life in Emergency? Check Out Here! to stop the sounds and vibrations of the touch response, Open Settings -> Sound and Vibration -> Vibrate on touch -> Select Off for a better experience.Once there you can disable keyboard sounds, screen lock sounds, charging sounds, touch sounds, touch vibration, etc. However, it is possible that the device is used by an older adult who doesn’t have a keen sense of touch, it is recommended to leave the vibration activated so it’s easier to tell when the screen is touched.

2. Deactivate keyboard vibration when you type
sound.jpg

Somehow, touch response keyboard is active when the new keyboard is in use or activated for the first time. You may perhaps wonder since you’ve deactivated all the touch feedback on the system.
So why does it vibrate when I type? Well, the keyboard has settings of its own. To deactivate keyboard vibrations, you’ll have to head to the settings on the keyboard itself, whether you still use the stock one or one that you’ve installed such as Swift or Google Indic in my case.

Go to Settings > Additional settings > Language and input > Current Keyboard > Choose your Keyboard (in case of google Indic keyboard) > Sound on Press > Toggle to OFF and Vibrate on keypress > Toggle to OFF

3. Rein in auto-correct

It's quite often auto-correct is more a hinder than a help. It would be perfect if it would just recommend words instead of directly changing what we’ve written after we hit the space bar and putting whatever it feels like in there. I have to apologise numerous times to use and have to take that extra mile to tell them that it's auto correct and not what I typed. You’ll probably have to deactivate it before you continue installing apps. To deactivate

Go to Settings > Additional settings > Language and input > Current Keyboard > Choose your Keyboard (in case of google Indic keyboard)
In the keyboard settings, press ‘Input’ > toggle the options that say ‘Auto spell correction.’

4. Uninstall/remove preinstalled apps

Stop.jpg


A commonly known fact. I'm not sure now, but previously my legacy devices used to be packed with OEM apps which I seldom use. It's either OEM knows what I want or OEM dictates what I'm supposed to use from their own services. Right?

If your device is newly flashed, you might never use those services and potentially be wasting using valuable device space as well as mobile data. And then frequent updates from play store to keep the app up to date for reason not known to us and some may even be running in the background and we don't even know it. You can’t completely uninstall them (unless your phone's rooted), but you can put them on hibernate (disable). In such case

Go to Settings > Installed Apps > (Sort the app for easy navigation) > Choose the app you want to disable (avoid core Google services or other apps that aren’t in the app drawer). In the app information, you’ll find a force close button. Alternatively, you can also choose to deactivate notifications should you choose.

5.Dress for the occasion
Themes.jpg

Unlike most of the OEM, Mi Devices come with its own Theme Store.  Mi themes have hundreds and thousands of themes for styling just for you. If you are familiar with web development, the first approach is akin to using inline CSS styles, and the second approach is akin to using style sheets. If not, we have the Mi-Theme store ready to apply themes packages with custom icons, wallpapers, fonts. Mi themes are nothing but framing or matting around your device UI and make up the look and feel with a variety of customization options. Downloading themes is as easy as 1-2-3 Steps
Open Themes > Download the theme of your choice > Apply > Reboot should it asks for completion

For granular level customisations
Open Themes > Download the themes of your liking > tap profile icon > scroll to customise theme > select the modules you wish to customise such as Lock style
