Now after upgrading your device to MIUI 9, it is possible to simply keep the pace up.
Fast- reply from notifications
This will be an amazing feature in Xiaomi MIUI 9. It actually saves a lot of time of users and enables them to perform other tasks at the same time. You can reply to the notification without actually opening the app after receiving MIUI 9 update on your device just like Apple did in their latest OS.
Optimized Dose mode
This is the feature for those who want to improve battery life of their phone. This feature will automatically kill the unused apps and help improving battery backup. It is obvious that apps running in the background put a lot of load on the battery and drain it very quickly. Also, this feature will enhance the performance of RAM. The good thing in MIUI 9 is the apps will go into hibernation mode just like the screen of your laptop when you don’t use it.
MIUI 9 ensures maximum availability of RAM by simply minimizing the memory used by the apps and other tasks. Thus you can always make sure of maximum speed and performance from your Xiaomi device.
Improved Data saver
Apps that run in the background often consume data without your knowledge while using a Smartphone. MIUI 9 is equipped with an Improved Data Saver feature that doesn’t allow apps to consume data when they are not in use. Data access of such apps can simply be controlled and you can save more on your data bills. This feature is present in Apple devices and you might already know the same in case you have used them.
This is one of the amazing features that promise to help users to prevent the calls that rejected to appear in notification bar which is quite common in most of the smartphones we use today. Obviously it’s an amazing feature.
Call Screening feature
Well, we all know how unwanted calls annoy us. Many times we don’t want a caller to dial our number. This feature is helpful in this matter. You can simply block the unwanted numbers as well as callers.
Dual Space Feature
Creating two different accounts in your Xiaomi device is possible after MIUI 9 update. It may seem strange but it is true. It’s just like a guest account which is common in Personal Computers. You can always impose a limit on the access for anyone else who is using your device. It is also possible to install apps without any limit in both the accounts. There is no need to worry about the performance as Xiaomi has paid special attention to this.
