We may not know if MiTablet is coming, but we do know MIUI has come to a tablet, our beloved Nexus 7 II.

It's been almost a month since we started to beta test MIUI for Nexus 7 II, and now it's released to public. Hooray!

Many of you may want to learn a little something about the MIUI for Nexus 7 II before you go ahead and put it on your tablet.

I'll do a simple review here, and hope it could be of some help.

MIUI for tablet is still the same MIUI we're familiar with, but it's also different. The devs redesigned the look, system apps, icons, animations, etc. to make MIUI more compatible with the tablet.

You can change wallpapers and lockscreen at the same time as on phones.

It also looks really good in landscape mode

Settings is pretty much the same as on the phone. But the language is more simple and neat, like Locations services is just Location on the tablet, Add account is Add, etc. Also the devs made some changes to the options: added Home in DEVICE, lost Notifications light and Headphones, etc. You can also see that MIUI for the tablet is based on Android 4.4

Unlike on the phone, the notification shade on the tablet is transparent, and gives it an elegant look

Clearing notification button is on the bottom instead of on the upper right corner

Music app looks amazing

Calander looks a little strange to me, not as good as on the phone

Different albums are listed vertically instead of horizontally due to the screen size of the tablet

Explorer is a doesn't have the Cleanup option. But  it provides you a few other options missing on the phone

Notes show in a sidebar for you to set it up

The new forum surely looks good in the big screen

Downloads window doesn't take up the entire screen. And it divided downloaded files into several categories

You can open the cleaner task bar by long pressing the Home button, or press the virtual key on the left. And the searching app function is integrated here

Long press the Home screen or pinch the screen with two fingers to enter editing mode, just the way we're famaliar with

I've tried playing some games on the tablet. And it runs smoothly

All in all, I think the MIUI for Nexus 7 II is pretty good. Bugs are inevitable at the beginning, but with time, I'm sure it'll become better and better.  Interested? Try it out yourself.

One thing I don't like is that some of the more hidden UI texts "like copy/paste" is still in Chinese. It's not completely modified for English yet. But other than that, it is an amazing rom. Better than stock
