Hey MIUIers!

Have you flashed MIUI 8 China Developer ROM in your Xiaomi phone? This new MIUI version is indeed a real excitement packed with lot of fun features! With MIUI 8, we can save up a lot of spaces from installing unnecessary third party apps as well. Today I will share my own opinions on the features in MIUI 8 which we can .


1) Currency Converter


In MIUI 8, the new MIUI calculater app is now having the currency converter feature. We can even check 3 currency at once with the MIUI Calculator App. Hence there's no need any 3rd party app for this feature.



2) Image Editor


With the update of MIUI 8, now we can have more features when editing our image in Gallery. There are more settings and effects to play with, hence we can save up spaces from downloading 3rd party image editor.



3) Video Editor


Did you know that we can finally edit our video in MIUI 8 without install any 3rd party apps? We can now easily trim our video and add some simple effects on it to make it more interesting!



4) Wallpapers


Want to customize the wallpaper of your lockscreen and home screen? We have Wallpaper Carousel that provides us daily wallpaper and Theme App Store which have thousands of wallpaper to be chosen. With MIUI 8, we don't even need to download any wallpaper from external sources.



5) Cleaner App


In MIUI 8 security app, one of its main features is Cleaner App. It will not just only clear cache, deep clean will help us remove the duplicate photos, big files and unused apps to clear up our storage even further. So why do we need a 3rd party app if we already have this feature in MIUI 8?



6) Wireless File Transfer (Mobile to PC)


Did you know that MIUI allows us to transfer file from phone to PC via FTP? Frankly, this feature already exist since MIUI 5 and its still rocking! We don't need to download any 3rd party app to transfer our files wirelessly in MIUI.



7) File Transfer (Mobile to Mobile)


In MIUI 8, we have a file-transferring feature called Mi Drop. This is used to transfer any files between two phones which have these features. This doesn't require any Internet Access to do it, just using Hotspot and transfer the file wirelessly. So we don't need any 3rd party app for this as well.



8) Backup Tools


If we want to change another ROM, we can use the stock backup feature to backup our apps, data and media files. If we want to transfer data into another new phone, we can use Mi Mover to easily transfer our apps, data and media files as well. 3rd party apps are not needed at all.



9) Virus Scanner


Since MIUI 5, there is a virus scanner in Security App and downloading a 3rd party anti-virus app in MIUI ROM is not necessary at all. Although some might said the MIUI virus scanner is not the most powerful, the native app is always the best as it "understands" the host (MIUI ROM) the most.



10) Data Usage Monitoring


Want to monitor your Data Plan usage? In MIUI 8, we have this feature under Security App. It is called Data Usage Stat. With this feature, we don't need to install any other apps to help us monitor our data usage. Isn't that awesome?



11) Auto Power Off & On


Like your phone to be automatically shutdown or power on? MIUI 8 can do that! It can be found under Security App > Battery > Battery Saver. This awesome feature already implemented since previous MIUI version and work flawlessly!



12) Timed Messaging


Do you know that MIUI Messaging has a feature that we can set a timer for our message to be sent? This feature is pretty useful for someone forgetful like me, and I bet it will be useful for you all as well.



13) Blocklist


There's someone always disturb you and you want to ignore his call or SMS? Blocklist comes in handy when you set his number in the list. You will not receive any call or SMS anymore, and you can manage settings for the blocked numbers. This feature can be easily found in Security App.



14) Cloud Storage


MIUI has their own cloud storage called Mi Cloud. It not only can store our media files such as images and videos, it also backup our contacts, blocklists, messages, call history, notes, saved WiFi networks and more! This is one of the best features in MIUI ROM.



15) Scanner


Scanner is a little feature that hides almost everywhere in MIUI. There is not only an exclusive MIUI scanner app in its Tools folder, we can also find it in Camera App, MIUI 8 search bar and Browser App. It can used to scan QR code and barcodes as well!





Final Verdict

          In short, MIUI 8 gives us a lot of native features that sufficient enough for us to use in daily life. We don't need to download too many extra 3rd party apps to make our smartphones "smarter". I really enjoyed using MIUI 8 now and I hope you guys will be the same when you flashed MIUI 8 in your device! Peace!
