Best Features of Xiaomi MIUI 7.0
Xiaomi has finally unveiled its new version of Android OS MIUI 7.
MIUI has been around since the days we had the old Android Froyo, it has evolved constantly and now it has reached its 7th major version the MIUI 7. Hugo Barra of Xiaomi unveiled the new OS in New Delhi @ Hotel Lalit International.
Hugo Barra said that he is glad to share that the 750 engineers and programmers have helped in creating the new upgraded MIUI 7.0 for the 150,000,000 Xiaomi users worldwide.
Why were Xiaomi Fans Unhappy at MIUI 7 Launch?
Xiaomi fans are not happy at the event as the anticipated Xiaomi Mi Note 2 to get launched but didn’t happen. Xiaomi actually can’t launch any of the MediaTek processor-powered mobiles in India due to a patent infringement case filed by Ericsson on Xiaomi.
That was the only reason they recalled the launch of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G which was also powered by the MediaTek processor. Indian CEO of Xiaomi Manu Jain recently shared the hard times they have faced due to the case and How difficult it was for them to do a product recall. I don’t anticipate that Xiaomi will be able to bring the Xiaomi Mi Note 2 to the Indian market any sooner.

Performance Comparison Video MIUI 7.0 :
The MIUI 7 claims to give 10% more battery by maintaining a single waking time for All apps instead of leaving the Apps to wake the CPU at their own time, for example, if you have Facebook and Whats app installed in your phone, both the Apps wakes up the CPU at their own (different) time which causes the CPU to use more power, but in MIUI 7 the CPU sets its own waking time for all apps at once, which is quite a smart approach to save power.
