We know MIUI is a very complete layer full of useful options and exclusive functions. But not everything is working well, and I think every time I want to change a setting on my mobile, MIUI makes it difficult for me. With MIUI 14, I may change. I don’t have much hope.
I’ll give you my opinion about the settings of the customization layer at the Miki level. And I’ll be a critical one. I need a higher price. A small number of people can rely on a Xiaomi mobile to find a certain configuration, so it’s difficult to navigate the whole world through a number of tasks. Fortunately, we can always learn some tricks to better control our Xiaomi or POCO mobile.
MIUIs endless tweaks and changes make me crazy.
But as well as its own design that is highly appreciated and hated by others, MIUI, is changing some aspects from other Android products. The developers of the famous Xiaomi layer change the order of many elements as they wish to, and add other interesting functions such as themes or optimization. But every day, certain changes make users from other manufacturers a tragedy.
There are times when I need to access the MIUI Settings app. There are some configurations that I can’t do, or because I don’t want to, from any quick settings. One can share mobile-fares. If I were to the network or the wireless settings of my previous phone, now I need to go to the Connection and Sharing section where we find all the connections you need to do, such as NFC or my shared.
On the left, the settings in the MIUI 13 are shown. On the right, the Settings page.
This menu seems long and includes functions that could be included in other sections. The difficulty of finding something concrete is increasing. Thankfully, I remember what the search feature is like a simple task.
The same thing happens when I go to an app to remove it, I have to go to Settings and/or gt. to manage the apps. I see the list of my installed applications, but before that was faster and more intuitive. Using a Google map, you can just navigate to Settings > Applications and thats the reason that I have seen the latest applications on the screen. I could go on forever, because of the high level of customization, that makes it easier and more confusing to find certain options. It doesn’t matter the number of options as it is the logical order of them.
There is no such difference: deinstalling or managing an application is much more direct on pure Android, but MIUI contains some more options, which makes it complex.
On other phones with less powerful versions of Android, to manage the permissions that I give for apps I go to the security section, something that seems reasonable to me. I have to wait for a longer time in MIUI. The application menu under the name Permissions opens new screen, where there are two versions of the permissions manager, one ordered with the permissions granted by the calendar or the camera, and a second section to check each permissions.
You have to pass the bottle from time to time.
That is only the hardest thing, with the fact that, even though Android is only available, designers and developers are not allowed to work. They could simplify them a few times. Phones are designed to lighten daily tasks. To avoid any situations, phone calls are enough to keep them handy. Here are some other examples of this chaos that can be better addressed.
- the phone is free to mention: not only device information, but also update, storage, backup, certification, etc.
- The update to the system has already included the application menu. We don’t need the last one.
- Lock time: The hard set is here. Besides, the whole list could be incorporated in Display.
- Homescreen, wallpaper, and theme art: custom things that can be grouped into one.
- Passwords and Security, Security and Emergency, Privacy: as simple as adding them to the Security and Security menu.
- Additional parameters: This submenu has an abundance of settings that suit other categories or sections, such as a System section.
There’s a feeling that, in the whole of MIUI’s development, there are many settings available and the same creators do not understand how to resolve such a confusion. Other functions can be replaced by native solutions, and many others must be reordered, thereby putting up a reflection on the where the user would look for it and how to explain it more clearly.
Three captures I had to hunt all MIUI 13 settings.
There are many different possibilities. However, finding a choice becomes difficult.
As an Android enthusiast and a barely native user, I have seen how the MIUI settings have gained functions, but simultaneously, the order and control are lost. The diaper became more and more popular and they couldn’t find the balance between simplicity and functionality.
For all of us, I hope developers can improve the variety of choices they offer to the user in the future. Thus promoting an enjoyable use of the mobiles, which is part of our personal life’s personal tools.
