Hi MIUIers,

MIUI 6 has been announced on Aug 16 New Product Launch Event. It is based on Android 4.4 KitKat. And now I want to compare it with Android L on Xiaomi Mi 4.



Lock Screen
  

MIUI 6 lock screen is simpler than Android L. For MIUI 6, only two functions are supported on lock screen - slide upward to unlock and slide left to launch camera app. As for Android L, except for quick launch to camera app, you can also slide left or right to go to dial pad.

Notification
  

For MIUI 6, you can see the number of notifications on lock screen. Tap the circle you can view notifications under different categories. As for Androild L, it uses "Smart Lock Screen". Users can reply messages on their lock screen. You can also hide the notification if you want to.

Home Screen
  

Design for app icons of MIUI 6 is flatter and more obstract, and easier to recognize. App icons for Android L is irregular and with Holo style.

Folder
  

Folder of MIUI 6 is full screen and with blur glass background. While folder of Androild L uses material design and only display on part of the screen.

Shade
  

MIUI 6: Slide downward anywhere on the screen to launch notification bar. Slide left/right to swift to toggles.
Android L: Slide downward to notification bar, Slide downward again to toggles.

  

Recent
  

Cleaner makes MIUI 6 more convenient. You can also choose between card v.s. app icons. While on Android L, you can slide left/right to turn off the app.

  

Animation
  

You can find lots of animations on MIUI 6. For example, while you're dragging the icon, you can find a shade behind. All icons will vibrate after you re-locate your app icon, or the fireword effect after you delete an app. These are all unique for MIUI 6.

  

Compared to previous versions, Android L has more animations. For example, shade will appear when you push a button. Its recent tasks show great animations too.

Great comparison. As slavin23 mentioned, MIUI should concentrate more on globalizing inbuilt apps.  Language support must be improved.

Nice one Kate! Both looks good too, but i think MIUI can gain an upperhand due to the effort to enhance the user experiance by making it more interactive and intuitive. It would be even better if MIUI can fix their stock apps and make them more friendly to the global users too but not China only.

I have the Nexus 5 with Android L for work and use the Mi3 for my personal phone. Looking forward to seeing MIUI 6 and doing my own comparison.

I do think though Android L is an improvement over KitKat.
