Suddenly it became blazing fast (swiping from the home screen to next). Better wallpapers etc. Miui has always been known to be a heavy skin, even Huawei/Honor's EMUI is tons better than MIUI. Its good they finally realized this.

That 2 layers on android you can really feel once you've used ios. Its faster, leaner with no bloatware. Its the iphone, its the king of smartphones.

You get awesome features with no big performance drops like a lot of phones i has been used. Sorry bro, dont buy a low end device too
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2020funny u should say that when ios 'copied' a bunch of Android features. Apple copies from android, android copies from Apple, Xiaomi copies from Apple, Samsung copies from Apple, Apple copies from Samsung... Conclusion they copy everything from each other, what a surprise.
The only problem with Xiaomi is deliberately slowing down older devices with every software updates. Less battery, less features compared to new Mi 11 & lots of bugs & things for older devices. They do this to Force older customers to dump their devices & buy the new ones. Is it a coincidence that 12.5 comes right after mi 11. Miui 12.5 will only work best for those getting it straight out of the box not for those who are going to update. That's The reason I shifted to oneplus because of such bad practices from Xiaomi no matter how enticing the skin is unless MIUI 12.5 comes in the retail box

Also Android is heavier because the underlying code needs to be written in java to accomodate the variety of hardware interfaces that can interact with it unlike apple which doesn't need to accomodate a million interfaces. Both approaches have down and up sides.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 202012.5 is an optimisation update im not sure what u want from a .5 updateIts not a .5 update dude, did you even read? The number 13 is superstitious to them; so instead of using 13, they used 12.5. 14 would be the next one. This is a major update, like 11 to 12.
The problem with Android is that you're running two layers of software on your phone. One to manage the core components and satisfy Google, the other to satisfy the manufacturer.
Apple doesn't have this problem and those who've used Windows Mobile still miss it for this reason.
If you love Android, maybe just get a Pixel. Seem to be good phones and only one company to please.
LG Superfan, 28 Dec 2020Didn't they just released MiUi 12 like 6 months ago? 12.5 is an optimisation update im not sure what u want from a .5 update
Sasa, 28 Dec 2020Instead of the number 13, they put 12.5 ?! 13 is unlucky.not in china, it was explained in chinese unsurprisingly
This phone would be so much better with a less cluttered (more stock) android look.
MIUI is the only thing I hate about Xiaomi phones, such a mess on such good phones...

Yeah you definitely do...
It's sounds interesting if only this version of mui will be less heavy than previous version in term of battery consumption and mermory and fluidity of navigation also hope it corrected a various bugs and lags, also waiting for Mui 13.
