MIUI is our very own user interface based on Android that is loved by millions worldwide. Over the past five years, we have developed countless features and optimizations that will enhance the way you use your phone. MIUI is intuitive, helpful and so easy to use. The idea and concept of MIUI 8 is origin from the colorful kaleidoscope.The phenomenon of light entering from the other end creates a colorful pattern due to repeated reflection in the mirrors just like our MIUI 8.
What's new in MIUI 8 has been explained previously and i'm sure most of you have updated and using MIUI 8 right now. As a MIUI-lover, i've flashed across China/Global Alpha ROM, Developer ROM and even Stable ROM. Thus, I would conclude that MIUI 8 is easy to use but difficult to master. In this series, i will explain the changes and the new features introduced in MIUI 8. Lets explore deeper for some features which might not be highlighted but extremely useful and handy ;)
MIUI 8 brings in a refreshing interface in Gallery. You can browse through all the photos and videos taken with the timeline label. Check out the photo above, panorama shots are displayed in landscape view on the smartphone instead of the square version in MIUI 7. You don't have to tap in the square version thumbnail just to view your panaroma shots anymore
Thanks to technology, we are capable to capture perfect shot by using smartphone. Nowadays, smartphone comes with 13MP, 16MP or even 21MP camera. The higher the megapixel count on a camera sensor, the greater amount of detail that can be captured in a picture and of course the larger size of the photo. Despite you're using 128GB phone, one of the common problem we're facing is none other than running out of space as time passes by.
Mi Cloud is one of the key features in MIUI. Mi Cloud lets you access your photos, contacts, messages, call logs and more from anywhere. With 5 GB of free storage and more powerful features, Mi Cloud seamlessly syncs all content on your Mi Phone, Mi Pad, Mi TV and more. Mi Cloud is useful to backup all your important data and restore them anytime you want Mi cloud In MIUI 8, there's an option in gallery named "Optimize local storage after backups". What does that mean?
"Optimize local storage after backups" keeps low resolution images locally, and uploads the original full size image to the cloud. By doing so, you will have full resolution photos backup and save in Mi Cloud which will save a lot of local storage.
Our gallery has professional photo editor too. You don't have to download any third party app to beautify your photos anymore ! Level up your photos with an advanced photo editor built into Gallery. Filter, adjust, doodle, mosaic and more without using a separate app.
MIUI 8 brings quick sharing to the Gallery app, where the user can share a picture with beautify effect on different social media platforms by just swiping up.
In latest Developer ROM, Slide down to back to the image list view while viewing a photo in full screen mode. A more efficient photo browsing gesture, please check the following GIF image to see how it works
