Today’s generation smartphones are getting bigger and bigger. We are getting 5.5-inch or more screen size with every newly launched smartphone. Moreover, users of stock Android, HTC Sense, LG UX, Oxygen OS, or Samsung’s One UI, may find pulling of the notification panel up from the bottom of the screen a bit weird. However, with a 6-inch smartphone, it might be very useful as not everybody has bigger hands and many users cannot reach the top of the notification panel easily.
But, it is time to rejoice for big screen smartphone users as one of the Xda Developer’s Senior Member, TomBayley1, developed an application which is based on the stock Android Q/Pie style but with an MIUI touch in it. The MIUI-ify application is based on the latest, MIUI 10 skin which is so far, the best skin of Xiaomi. So, without further ado, let us get straight into the article;

So, there you have it from my side in this article. This application first appeared on Xda Developers forum and a special thanks to TomBayley1 for developing this application that really helps the users with a 6-inch smartphone to easily reach and toggle quick settings and access the notification panel. Personally, the MIUI skin basically on the quick settings, the volume animation, and skin, is something that I prefer to have on my smartphone. But, on the whole, I definitely go for the Stock Android experience on my device or a launcher that can imitate that look.
