Hello MIUI'ers,

Welcome to the 63rd edition of the MIUI Weekly Poll. Last week we discussed the topic "Does Android Update Really Improve Your User Experience?"

Here are the poll results:

Some of the best replies:

They mostly provide Bug fixes & Security Update Patches, improves system stability and also some times UI improvements. so, yes it definitely improve my user experience ☺️ #ilovemiui
Some update Improves, some are not, but still, thanks to those who give effort to make an update it really helps everyone. 👍
No, It does not.

I rather have a not so outdated OS with stability rather than trying something new and soon something may break. Been to the spot where the phone's OS matched what is new out in the market (through custom ROM). Sure new features are great, but what set the difference is the device itself.

Let us take this example. You bought a device let us say during the marshmallow era. After a few months came the nougat update. The device being built during the marshmallow era sure can handle marshmallow, and it can accept nougat's feature (maybe not all, but some will). How about Oreo? Will the same device handle Oreo the way it was designed to handle marshmallow?

So why not make the device run smoothly and with less issue at nougat since it is just 1 step higher on which the device is designed for.

Sure you can port the current OS version at the device., but the real question is. DOES IT IMPROVE YOUR USER EXPERIENCE IF THE NEW OS FEATURE DOES NOT EVEN WORK AT YOUR DEVICE? OK, let us say it works but with issue? I bet you will be even disappointed with your user experience.



This week we will discuss Is the Home Button needed in Smartphones?.

We have all got used to having a home button on our smartphones, it can be a physical or capacitive button but Apple and Samsung have both dropped the button on their newer phones the IPhone X and Galaxy S8 respectively.

There always will be advantages of both options so lets look at a few of those.

No Home Button
  • 1. The screen can be larger due to the space that used to be used by the home button now being used by the screen.
  • 2. On screen softkeys could be more configurable than hardware keys.
  • 3. No moving parts so less wear and tear.
  • 4. The Home Screen look and feel can be customized via a software update.
  • 5. Possibility of using to the gestures

Having a Home Button
  • 1. A fingerprint reader can be placed under the button for easier and quicker access.
  • 2. Physical feedback from pressing a button is easier.
  • 3. Slightly smaller screen for the same physical phone size



The new IPhone X uses gestures on the screen to do a lot of the home button functions.
A few of the gestures are:
  • 1. Swipe up from the edge of the screen to go to the home screen or unlock the phone.
  • 2. Swipe down from the middle of the screen to go to search.
  • 3. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen and pause in the middle of the screen to go to the app switcher.
  • 4. Swipe right along the bottom edge of the screen to switch to another app.
  • 5. Swipe down from the top of the screen to show the notifications.

Gestures are not new to most users, they have been around in some customized launchers as well as MIUI launcher for a long time, they can be quite a time saver.
Xiaomi have placed the fingerprint reader on the back of the phone below the camera and not on the home button as well as the Vivo having an in-screen fingerprint reader now; of course some will prefer the facial recognition to a fingerprint reader as well.

The removal of the physical home button will allow for more customisable options and expanding the use of gestures for example while giving a larger screen for the phone size.

So is a Home button still needed? Have your say!

Yes of course!
Home button is used as an instant button to get to your home, it also refresh the users eye when exploring phone, imagine too many tabs are opened, its a disaster where to go next, right?! So Home Button still needed to ease our life. 🏡🏠🏡

In my opinion, we don't need a home button anymore after "full screen gestures" feature introduced by Apple and then continued by OnePlus. Full screen gesture is much more convenient and easy for me.

Yes, the presence of a HOME button is necessary.
However this button should only be meant for One-Button Navigation and Fingerprint Sensor.

Especially when you have a broken screen that's the moment you wish for a home button because your screen sensitivity tends to frustrate at times.

No home button is needed. The fingerprint reader could be on the phone's back or under the screen (in future phones). Softbuttons and gestures work very well and replace the hardware button which is a risk for accumulating dust and dirt.

hardware button is preferred. it will work even when the software is buggy or otherwise not working properly. in case someone hacked your phone, they can manipulate software buttons.

I think we need functionnally of Home button but there is no need for just a button. Huawei developed for smartwatches An above screen gestures, we all use everyday domek of them like notification bar. Samsung have moved this button below screen on S8 i think this button will abandon phones in next years. If phones will not need this button we will grant blogger display/smaller phones or extra space inside phone for mayby blogger battery?

Home button is useless. It takes unnecessary space. Samsung has a nice navbar with pressure sensor and it feels like a home button but it's under the display. I like that. But I love Full Screen Gestures on Redmi 5 Plus. They are soo much better than navbar or home button.

Yep, home button is needed. Having a physical button is nicer than having a digital button as having something discernable from the screen to touch is nice.

Of course, a Home Button is not needed, but the interesting question is how people can be so obstinately passionate about no-longer-useful things of the past.

you don't need a home button as such, but it is nice to know you have a way to exit everything if your screen is to freeze or app crash etc.

Yes - must have.

Choosing a phone I always look for one with physical keys under the screen.
I do not like software, because they are not always when they are needed.
In addition to the home button, which quickly takes me to the home page, I often use the back button to whip the application and menus for managing applications in the background.
