Its been a day since I'm using MIUI 8 (6.6.16) China Developer Rom on my Redmi 1S,
So now lets have a look on the things whose UI got changed.
Some of the option's order is changed, and we've got "Permissions" and "App Lock" option right on the main page of settings.
the overall UI is changed here's a look of it. Most of the options are at their default location though UI for wallpapers selection is changed.
Notifications & Status Bar:
Now we've a complete overhaul for notifications shade though you can change it back to previous look via setting Notifications Toggle Layout to "Separate", in Notifications & Status Bar settings, here are the new looks.
Dialler & Contacts:
The UI of Dialler app is well polished now, and now we've the top right 3 dots in bottom left corner, and the settings of the app is unchanged so I'm not gonna include screenshots for the same, lets have a look on the new things here.
The UI of the camera app is changed, and now we've no swiping right or left to access additional features on the camera app. Now we've all of the modes right on the main page of the Camera App.
Talking about the camera performance of the new MIUI 8, I found out that focusing speed of the MIUI 8 is better than MIUI 7 and also noticed that focusing is now more better, here're some sample pictures for you.
The Security app is untouched, though apps' list loading speed is significantly improved, and the "Battery" section in the security app is totally changed with added some options like battery heating indecator and check battery draining apps.
The Complete UI of weather app is changed and I'm totally impressed with the new looks.
So lets have a look on this too,
The UI of battery usage info. is changed a little bit. Now it has a transparent, lined UI in battery usage info, have a look here:
Messaging & Calendar App:
UI's got changed a little bit, as now we've the "Compose Message" button on the bottom right corner.
Calendar app's almost same as previous but have some tweaks which can't be noticed easily.
Notes App, Scanner & Calculator:
These are the apps which's been changed completely from options to UI and features.
Our calculator app now have, many other options like currency, length, mass, speed, conversion etc.
Just like the calculator app, Scanner also have got changed, and many features are added.
Music App, Gallery App & Clock:
Music App is remained untouched exactly same as seen in MIUI7
Gallery App is a little bit changed as can be seen here:
Clock is also same but with some polished UI:
Launcher, Lock Screen, Recent Apps' Tray & Call UI:
Icons of the launcher is lightened so now they're looking more adequate to eyes.
The Lockscreen notifications are also changed and now we've battery full notification too, have a look on the new UI of lockscreen notification, Aren't these pretty:
Now we've music player shortcuts in Recent Apps' tray and switch to grid and thumbnail view on the top right corner.
Call UI is something I liked the most in New MIUI8 here's the preview:
Lastly the New Long Screenshot feature, Here's the preview:
After using it continuously this is how the battery performed, and yeah Quite Impressive:
As per using one full day, MIUI 8 look more smoother than our previous MIUI7 and UI is fluid, it'll surely, despite having the most talked features (Cloning of Apps, Second Space) of MIUI8 missing, I liked the overall feel of the rom and I think you guys will surely love it. One more thing that this rom is based on Android 4.4.4 (KitKat) for our Redmi 1S, which is think is appropriate as of now, not feeling any lag or glitched in UI and in my personal opinion Android 4.4.4 is most stable version of Android yet.
So guys enjoy the New MIUI 8 which is going to be released on 17th June, 2016.
Dont forget to leave your feedbacks here.
