Review On Mi MIX 2S
By Nowfel


Hi MIUIers!
How are you all? It was May when Xiaomi announced about their latest UI update which is MIUI 10. Almost every mobile users remain excited regarding software updates. Same goes for me as well. I bought a gorgeous Mi MIX 2S from the very beginning of its launch. It's really an awesome device with superd performance. But today I am not going to give review of this device, instead of that, I am going to review about MIUI 10. And Mi MIX 2S got the Beta update of MIUI 10 in the first batch which is quite a long time ago and as a Super Moderator, I got the update in the first batch. So, after about 1 and a half months using experience, I am going to express my views and opinion regarding it. So, let's begin.


MIUI 10 has got many upgradation from MIUI 10 specially in optimization and UI in different apps. Here I will try to cover as much as I can to share my experience after using it for a handsome amount of time. Hope it will give everyone a clear idea regarding MIUI 10 and it's features.

System Optimization

The first thing which any user is looking from any software update is a decent look with a smoother UI. And smoother UI is the front end work and the back end work for this smoother UI is a better and perfect system optimization. And this time, I must say that, MIUI 10 just nailed it in case of system optimization. I am using for around last 45 days and I am fully satisfied with it. It gave me awesome performance with amazing speed from day to day life usage to heavy gaming and everything.

New Notification Shade

Well, after system optimization it comes about decent look. And I will start this design part from the notification shade. In MIUI 10, you will find a totally different notification shade from MIUI 9. It is something similar to iOS or Android P Beta Preview which is available for Mi MIX 2S (I have experienced this beta preview for few days). This time the notification shade gives you a quite clean and fresh look with white background. Which gave it a premium look. There is a medium size clock available on the left side along with other icons on the right. And shortcut for different options look pretty decent with light blue color over the white background color.  And in the notification shade, you can divide the notifications in 3 categories which are, a) Seperate, b) Group & c) unimportant.

New Volume UI

After the notification shade, now it's time to talk about the new volume slider or volume UI, whatever you say. In MIUI 10, volume slider UI got a totally different look. Matching with the notification shade, it also got the same color which is white background with blue indication. When you press any volume button, you will see one slider option over the screen which will be the general mobile vomume. There will be 3 dots in the below of the slider and when you press that, you will find 3 different slider for different volume controls like, ringtone, media and alarm. You will find some other options in the panel which are, DND mode, Count Down for profile changer and silent button. This made the things related to sound very simple and easy to use. Thumbs up to MIUI 10 for adding this feature.



New Weather App

In MIUI 10, weather app also got new UI as well. And like all the other app updates, this UI is also very simple and easy to look at. For different kinds of weather conditions it will show different kinds of pictures which makes this app looks more promising. You can also see some other info like sunrise and sunset with a nice curve graph and air speed, humidity air pressure and some other info as well.



New Calendar App

Calander app also became more decent with the new UI. It's now more simple in the front panel and adding reminders are now more easy with the new adding options.

New Clock App

Most of the other apps got UI with simple white color where new clock app got the totally oposite. It got the new UI with black color. There are total 4 sections in the clock app. Those are stated below.

1. In the alarm section, you can now use voice to add alarms.   

2. In the clock section, you can add timezones for different places and see them all at same place with map marking.

3. Stop watch is just like the before.

4. Timer section became totally different. You can set timer just like the other timer apps, but you can also add different backgrounds for time screen like forest, summer night, beach etc and the most amazing thing is, it will play some sounds which is related tho this condition. Just have a try, you will love it.

New Calculator

Calculator app got some modification also. Now, in the front page, using a button you can move from normal calculator to scientific calculator.


You will see 3 different option on the top which are:
1. Calculator

2. Converter

3. Mortgage

New Data Usage Panel

Data Usage app, which is having short cut in the notification panel has also got new look. This look is having the combination is white and blue just like the other apps. This app also got very nice animation in the front panel.

New Security App

From the previous MIUI versions, we have seen that MIUI Security app is a very powerful app with lots of features like, junk file cleaning, virus scan, game booster etc. And in MIUI 10, it became more powerful with amazing UI with lots of animations and a clean look. Here are different functions of this security app.


1. Cleaner

2. Security Scan

3. Battery

4. Data Usage

5. Game Speed Booster

6. Manage App

It also has some other features like deep clean, dual apps, second space etc.


New Caller UI

Caller ID also got new UI with a very soft color tone with a little transparent shades.

Notes App With Voice Support

In notes app, now you can add you voice records to record it for future. This is amazing for keeping voice records.

New Nature Sound

In MIUI 10, there are some new sounds added for different functions. One of the remarkable sound option is, it has added many sounds for different kinds of notification starting from system notification to third party app notification.

Studio Lighting For Camera

Studio lighting is a new feature which Xiaomi made for the Mi 8 for the first time but after releasing Mi 8, Xiaomi CEO had announced that, it will also be available for Mi MIX 2s. As a result, my device got this feature few days back. It's normally a camera feature, which works only is rear camera portrait mode. In this mode what it does is, it detect human face using Xiaomi's amazing AI technology and then it can add different kinds of effects in the picture. Some samples are given below.



Quick Reply From Notification Shade

Next comes the quick reply feature. This is one of my favourite feature of MIUI 10. This feature is something, which allows you to reply a message instantly from the pop up notifications. It works for the most of the messaging apps including, sms, messenger, wechat etc.

Redesigned Lock Screen Notification

Notifications over the lock screen also got a little bit modification in case of shape and design. Here you can see a sample.


Faster System Animation

System animations like moving one screen to another screen and also the transactions became more smooth with faster speed.

MIUI Lab - Car Mode

MIUI Lab was available in MIUI 9 with only 1-2 features but in MIUI 10 is has more features than before. One is Car Mode, which is till now applicable for Chinese users only. It helps a person use his mobile while driving using AI technology. But it's still in development phase.


MIUI Lab - Super Resolution

Super Resolution is also a MIUI Lab features. It helps to get high resolution pictures from different sources specially from WeChat.

MIUI Lab - AI Preloading

AI Preloading is also a feature of MIUI Lab project. Using AI it detects users app use attitude and basing on that, it helps to open a app faster by pre-loading it.

Full Screen Gestures

Full screen gesture is another awesome feature. It helps to operate my mobile without using navigation buttons. Instead of that it uses different types of gestures to go back, open menu or show recent items. This gives a different kinds of user experience.



Taplus is an amazing features for capturing images from different apps. After enabling it, when you tap a image from any app for a long time, using AI, it will detect the image and gives you the option to save it. Even apps like Instagram which doesn't allow users to save a image directly, with the help of this app, you can directly save a image from Instagram.


  • Smooth UI
  • Better Optimization
  • Many Apps got new UI
  • Many New Features are added.
  • Fresh, Net & Clean look

  • Still some bugs are there.

Conclusion/ Summary

I am using Xiaomi mobiles with MIUI from the time when it has MIUI 6 running. From then, I have used MIUI 6, MIUI 7, MIUI 8, MIUI 9 and MIUI 10. Among all these MIUI versions I have used so far, I am really happy with MIUI 10 because of it amazing system optimization, clean & fresh UI and amazing performance.  Along with this, I also got some additional features which I have described in details above. So, in the conclusion, in one sentence I can say, I am just in love with MIUI 10.
