Hello MIUIers,
So you guys might be thinking what are the new features introduced in MIUI 9? or How will it perform on your device? So here i introduce you to my MIUI 9 In-Depth Review which hopefully will cover all the aspects of it. So here we start.

MIUI 9 is blazing fast and provides a very good user experience. The apps takes very less time to load and the animation of opening and closing has also changed. The UI has been optimized for lighter performance and fast response. The app installation time has been reduced. It takes almost 30-40% less time for the app to install as compared to MIUI 8.

Setup:
The setup of MIUI 9 is same as MIUI 8 just except some color code schemes with the Blue Lightning Logo which you will see after the device boots up. But i must say the Boot up of the device after flashing the ROM was very fast as compared to the previous MIUI versions. After entering all the details we have total of 4 themes to choose from namely the "Default" , "No Boundary" , "Cool Black" and "Color Fantasy" out of which No Boundary is my favourite. After choosing the theme, it loads to the UI of the ROM very fast.

User Interface:
The UI of MIUI 9 is quite light and smooth. In China ROM you will find some of the Chinese app bloatware which you can uninstall and enjoy the smooth experience. The Icons in the Default theme has been changed a bit and you can experience a new UI by changing the theme to the other 3 available themes.



New Features:
Key and Gesture Shortcut:
There are new Key and Gesture Shortcut under Settings>Additional Settings>Key and Gesture Shortcut where we can change the combination which are used to turn on the torch, Capture the Screenshot, Launch Camera and much more. For e.g.:- Pressing the Power Button two time to enable the torch or Keep the back button pressed to click a screenshot.

Taplus:

This feature helps you to manage the Links which you recieve via message. You can turn on it from Settings>MIUI Lab>Taplus. To use it, whenever you recieve a message press the link you recieve and you will be able to see two options at the bottom of the screen, clicking on the first will open the link in the Default Browser whereas, the second option will help you to edit the link and then open it in the browser.

Split-Screen:
This is the most awaited and yet most amazing feature of the MIUI 9. It is enabled by default and you can find it in the Recent Apps Menu by pressing the menu button once. You have to click on the SplitScreenMode Bar to enable it and then you have to drag the first app to the SplitScreen Bar and then it will show other apps which can be used or cannot be used in Split Screen Mode. The animations of Opening and closing of the split screen feature is amazing and it works pretty smoothly.

Here's the GIF to illustrate better:

Home Screen Editor:
The Home Screen Editor aka the place where you can manage all the apps and arrange in the sequence you like them has been changed. Here, a small tick will appear on the selected app unlike the MIUI 8 where you click on the app and it came to the bottom. After selecting the app, you can take them to other pages by bringing them to the bottom where all the screens are available in short and an empty screen if you would like to create new page with those apps. You can arrange the homescreens in the way you like from the bottom of the screen by pressing and dragging it to the front and it is much amazing to use it with the smooth animations.



Silent Mode/DND:

You have an option to put your phone in Silent Mode or DND Mode. You can apply any of these for Silent/DND i.e., Always, 30 Minutes, 1 Hour, 2 Hours and 8 Hours. However, Custom time option isn't available. The DND mode will silence everything except Alarm Clock whereas the Silent Mode will Vibrate for calls and notifications.


Security App UI:

Automated Tasks are now present in Security App>Battery>Automated Task.The Security app's Permission UI has a whole new different look. Here, you will find all the installed apps and upon clicking on it you can get the concerned app's details like How much Data and Battery the app has used. Give it Autostart Permission or Change the MIUI Battery Restrictions, Check the App's background Data usage, Restrict it using Mobile Data or WLAN and much more...

Recent Apps UI
The Recent Apps Screen has been fully redesigned. To lock an app just swipe it down and swipe down again to unlock. The Spaces between the apps has been reduced and now it looks more cool to see. Upon keep pressing on the app, you will get the apps details same like as in MIUI 8. In MIUI 9, the background doesn't gets blurred like in MIUI 8 but rather it replicates the background of the home screen which is more amazing to look.

Quick Card:
This is one of the most trending features out there. It was renamed from Smart Assistant. You can find it by swiping from left to right on your Homescreen. You can find apps on your Homescreen by typing the name of it or search the image you are looking for, You can enter some URL or text and it will search on the web for you. You can add the shortcut for various apps there and there is a note window where you can write any important thing and it will show up in notes app as well. It even counts the Steps you have moved. You can disable it by Pinching the Homescreen>Settings>Turn off Quick Card.




MIUI 9 Battery Backup:
The Battery backup on MIUI 9 is pretty good in my opinion. It can last a full day on light usage.

Features Removed:
There are some features which were removed because they weren't much in use and to make sure that MIUI 9 offers a faster performance. Those removed features are:
  • Child Mode
  • WiWide (A feature which allowed users to know the Open Wi-Fi)
  • Contact Card
  • Show Time (Profile Video)
