While many people are wary of those capable of customization and seek the closest possible experience to Android in its stock version in a smartphone, we do not deny that on many occasions these levels add interesting features to the Google operating system.

A clear example is MIUI 12, the latest version of Xiaomi's customization layer that has 5 things so useful that we think should be mandatory on any android phone. Do you want to know what they are? Join us.



1. The control center

Our colleagues at Urban Tecno have always right with their videos and this time they would not be outdone.

The MIUI 12 control center is something quite useful since it allows you to enable and disable numerous options of our smartphone quickly and easily. Plus, it's configurable enough so we can tweak it to our liking.

2. App lock

By blocking apps, we will protect our most sensitive information

There are applications that are more important than others. A clear example is WhatsApp, Gmail or our bank and is that in these apps we store a lot of information.

Don't want anyone to be able to access a specific app? Thanks to the blocking of applications with our fingerprint, only we can access them. It is also a very useful way to protect apps in the event of a lost or stolen mobile phone.

3. Second space

With the second space we can have more profiles in the same device

If you are one of those who like to have a mobile phone for work and another for leisure, the second Xiaomi space is your solution. With this option we can configure different profiles and have different apps in each of them, all on the same smartphone.



So when we have to work we set up a profile with productivity apps and when we finish our day we activate the second profile where apps like Netflix, Spotify or our favorite games will be. Undoubtedly one of the main functions of MIUI and that we would like to see by default on Android.

4. Dark mode

We love Xiaomi's dark mode


Although dark mode has arrived in MIUI 11 with the new version of Xiaomi's customization layer, it has been improved. Not only can we change the hue of the dark, but something else very interesting.

It is force all apps we installed to adapt to dark mode. In this way we will have the unit on our mobile device and we will not have apps in dark mode and others without.

5. Update Policy


MIUI 12 is undoubtedly one of the best levels of customization

One of the big problems with Android and its smartphones is that many of them are not updated or receive security patches, making them vulnerable to possible attacks by cyber criminals.

The good thing about MIUI is that although a Xiaomi or Redmi phone does not receive Android updates, will continue to receive updates to its level of customization, getting all the improvements that MIUI offers to these devices, which, as we have seen, are not exactly a few.
