"Are you guys seriously posting about a new mew ui crap that nobody cares about?"
- nobody =/= millions of China population who purchased variants of Xiaomi smartphones.
"So you're making this as important as if it was a new major OS release (iOS, Android, WM...etc)"
-As long as it's news related to mobile world, it will be shown under the news tab. Not just major OS release, for example. This is gsmarena, not OSarena(if there's any).
" What's next? Gsmarena.china?"
- Most manufacturers are from asia like Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea, etc. just to name a few. Apparently you got dibs on China.
My conclusion: You are one cute troll. You should be thankful that I fed you ;)
AjinP, 10 May 2016Seriously!!! I think MIUI is one of the best re-work of Android OS...Agreed..Miui interface/themes are amazing..Im using (MIUI7) 6.5.5 Marshmallow on my Nexus 5,its the only Android OS that can pull me away from my iPhone for a few days..Cant wait to try Miui-8..

Also, when any device is updated to a newer version of Android, there are bugs and optimization issues, due to which you would feel that the device slows down or battery performance reduces. It happens with iPhones and even Nexus phones, due to which you have multiple incremental versions like Android 5.0 , 5.1 then 6.0, 6.0.1 and iOS version 9, 9.1, 9.2
Xiaomi also does incremental updates and fixes and improves their OS. If you flash a Developer ROM, you will get updates to your device weekly or bi-weekly, which is very good in my opinion.

And some have grown tired of 'vanilla': pureness vs uniqueness. That uniqueness is one of the selling point of custom ui and will eventually grow in you.
I am actually hats off to those who keep these custom ui' s on improving, updating to current OS version, and making it lighter as time progresses.
I dont like MiUI, Flyme UI its better (based Redmi Note 2 on MiUI 6 and M2 Note on Flyme 4.5 experience,performance,UI design and features)
anonymous, 10 May 2016They added ads on this new version.

Most of the apps. you open start at the online advertisement screen. Even music and file explorer apps.
I think people will start hating MI devices soon cause of that as they make abuse of it.
BTW.. they intentionally slow down the performance and battery life before launching a new MIUI version, so when you'l update you'l have a fake feeling of a boosted MIUI version, it's actually same, maybe even slower, but you'l not notice.....
I wrote a lot in the forum about their aggressive politics regarding customers. Nobody do that so often (performance and battery decrease).

Herodroid, 10 May 2016its not a new device, they are updating their android skin - MIUI.I thought that the mi max was their latest new device. ...on may 17
