Today, Xiaomi has unveiled the new version of its MIUI Android skin: version 7 comes to replace the earlier version 6, and brings a host of new customization options and a very noticeable 30% boost in responsiveness.
What are the most notable new features in MIUI version 7? Read on to find out.
The big highlight of the new MIUI 7 interface is the enhanced customization options that come with the skin. There are a few new themes that come built in and they change the appearance of the user interface nearly completely.
Making custom themes for MIUI 7 is now a much more streamlined process that does not require any coding skills whatsoever. Xiaomi has put the effort to make this an easy and fun way to give a fully custom and personal look for your phone, and right below you can see how it draws inspiration from some popular games and TV series for a theme overhaul. The new MUSE toolkit is what makes all this possible.
While higher resolution screens have brought us text that appears sharp, it's often a problem to read it for the elderly or other people with vision problems. Xiaomi recognizes this problem and brings a finer control over text size as you can tweak text size from the default regular to an oversized large font with three in-between steps, which should be plenty of control for most people.
The new MIUI v7 has shortened app response times and should be able to deliver up to 30% faster response times, according to Xiaomi. At the same time, the company claims to have done some analysis on the power usage that allows it to achieve up to 25% savings in power.
Among the many new customization options, MIUI 7 features a brand new theme that is specifically designed for females and lovers of pink with all its bells and whistles, including a custom icon pack and wallpapers.
The new MIUI gallery has become smarter than before: Xiaomi has built in a new feature that knows when it sees a picture of your baby or pet/pets and groups all of those pictures neatly in an album. You can see the new interface for this smart new feature of the gallery right below.
