Hello Fellow MIUI Fans,

Android is the world's most widely used smartphone operating system, yet it has lots of useful functions that many people don't know about. This is partly due to its many versions and also because of the sometimes large differences between the various Android phone manufacturers. Here are some useful tips:

1. Configure a secure lock screen

Android phones all offer various forms of secure lock screens. Most phones will prompt you to do this during setup now, and you should. The defaults are PIN, pattern, and password. Most devices now offer fingerprint security which will probably be the fastest way to unlock your device. To control your lock screen, head to the system settings, and find the lock screen & password menu. You will need to have a secure lock screen to use features like Android Pay and factory reset protection.

2. Customise your phone with widgets

Want to see all the information that's important to you with a single glance at the screen? That's where widgets come in handy. These are small windows that show the functions of an app without the user needing to completely open the app. They can be placed anywhere on the home screen and be used to show what matters to you, for example, upcoming events, the latest news, the weather and new emails.

PhotoGridLite_1531184954824.jpg

Simply tap on a blank space on the home screen and hold it down until a menu appears. Then tap Widgets and all the available ones will be shown. Hold down the one you want and move it to wherever you want it on the home screen.

3. Google Assistant

Did you set up OK Google? If so, you've got two ways to access the Google Assistant. To access Assistant, use OK Google or long-press the home button. Then, just start talking. This feature was rolled out to all Android phones running Marshmallow or higher. Assistant understands more context and natural language than Google's old voice search feature, and it can be integrated with third-party services like IFTTT. It's great at home automation and searching the web, and it can even read you the news of the day.

4. Turn on the flashlight

No need to download a flashlight app, the functionality for using the camera flash as one has long been part of Android. Just pull down the notifications bar at the top of the screen, and you should see a number of functions, including a switch for the flashlight.

PhotoGridLite_1531185165170.jpg

5. Use Split-screen

If your phone runs Android 7.0 or higher, you'll be able to bring up two apps in split-screen mode. To do this, all you need to do- go Recents Menu then press and hold on an app’s card to perform different actions such as locking it in the background, entering split-screen mode and More! then click on split-screen
Your current app will shrink into the top half of the screen and you can choose another app from your recent list. The divider between the two apps can be dragged to change the amount of screen real estate allotted to each one. Split-screen feature available for all devices running Nougat or higher ( on Xiaomi, android MM or higher). Some phones and tablets on older versions of Android have similar functionality, but it's not compatible with as many apps.

6. Take a screenshot

Android offers an easy way to do this, but it varies depending on the manufacturer. The standard method is to hold down the power button and the volume key at the same time or slide three fingers down to take screenshot.

7. Activate Reading Mode

Reading Mode is added to filter blue light from the screen for the users who work almost through their phone or for the users who love to read or chat a lot, while performing all the operations our eyes start feeling strain due to blue light from the screen, the Reading mode is the solution for all this. In Reading Mode, yellow color filter covers the screen which reduces the eye strain and headaches.

To turn on this feature Settings >> Display >> Reading Mode. You can turn Reading Mode on for All the Apps or for selected apps only. See more: Reading Mode of MIUI 8

8. Use power saving modes

All Android phones have power saving modes of some sort -- sometimes two or three of them. Head to the battery menu (usually just Settings > Battery). Most phones offer basic power saving modes like the former that can be turned on automatically when the device reaches a certain battery level. This is definitely something you should set up.

PhotoGridLite_1531191570287.jpg

9. Customize quick settings

The quick settings are the settings toggles visible at the top of the notification panel (most devices) and in the fully expanded quick settings UI. On most devices, you can access them by swiping down twice. Customizing these is something everyone should do when getting a new device, and the process is much more consistent than it used to be. Just open the quick settings and hit the edit button. Then, long-press and drag to rearrange. The first few settings toggles you have in the list will be accessible at the top of the notification pane prior to opening quick settings.

10. Swipe input on the keyboard

Tapping with your thumbs is okay as an input method, but most phones have swipe input built-in too. Give it a shot by dragging across the letters for each word. The accuracy varies by device, but you can also install a different keyboard that might suit you better. There's the Google Keyboard for a clean but somewhat limited experience, and then more complex and powerful options like Gboard and SwiftKey.

11. Check your data consumption

Using data usage feature, you can check how much data you used, set your desired data usage limit, view each app's data usage stats, set permission for each app's data connection. You can set individual settings for each SIM separately.

Data usage is inside the Security app. If you enter Data usage you'll see like below.

PhotoGridLite_1531244191150.jpg

You can switch between SIM 1 and SIM 2 by swiping left or right.

PhotoGridLite_1531190481686.jpg

There is setting button on upper right corner. You can set Peak data limits and warning notifications level and Usage cycle reset date for each SIM.

PhotoGridLite_1531190456411.jpg

Peak data limit - Enter your maximun data usage volume in here.
DATA USAGE WARNING LEVEL - To get notification when data usage reached set volume.
Usage cycle reset date - This will determine how long to monitor your Peak data limit.

12. Turn on Developer Options

Google hides some of the more advanced tools in a special Developer Options menu that you'll have to enable to get at things like animation speed, USB debugging, and app standby (which I'll get to momentarily). To turn on Developer Options, open the "About phone" menu at the bottom of the system settings and find the build number / in Xiaomi device Miui version. Tap on that five or seven times and you'll get a message that you are a developer. The dev options will now available on settings > additional settings > Dev options

PhotoGridLite_1531198821328.jpg

13. Save offline maps

Google Maps includes support for saving maps offline, and the feature was recently expanded to be more powerful. It's not easy to find, though. Find the area you want to save offline, then tap in the search bar at the top of the screen. Close the keyboard and scroll the the bottom and you'll see the option to download. The app will bring up an outline to indicate the area that will be downloaded and estimate how much space it will take up. The offline data will include streets, basic points of interest, and the ability to use turn-by-turn navigation.
