Recently there has been a lot of buzz about the new user interface that was released by Xiaomi, the MIUI12.5, and everyone is getting antsy about what the hype is actually about and is better than the previous user interfaces by Xiaomi. At the M11 global announcement, it was revealed by Xiaomi that MIUI 12.5 update will be launched in the international markets and that was followed by a lot of buzzes. But questions like “is it worth the hype? Or is it compatible with your smartphone or not? What are the new features?” have been bugging all the gizmo geeks one and all at a time and undoubtedly, this has been a major unveiling of the decade and we will tell how and why too.
Xiaomi announced that MIUI12.5 has certain improvements than its previous UI, MIUI 12. MIUI 12.5 is the next version of the MIUI series by Xiaomi and it was already launched in China the last December. Here are the new features in MIUI 12.5 that you must know about. Based on its last user interface, MIUI 12.5 emphasizes a lot on system optimization. There has been a comprehensive and detailed transformation of the user interface in the recent MIUI 12.5 update. The newly revamped system user interface focuses on the reduction in the CPU usage by up to 22 per cent and achieving quite a lower power consumption by up to 15 per cent, thereby ensuring smooth functioning and graphics.
The second big improvement seen in MIUI 12.5 update is the facility of the smooth functioning of the screen gestures. Earlier versions, MIUI 12 had a single thread for all the tasks that you perform which resulted in interference and delayed response. But the new update of MIUI 12.5 presents the concept of a unique and a dedicated thread to each task, hence guaranteeing the instant response and enabling a frictionless performance. This also resulted in less CPU usage as compared to earlier UI in which each task competed for CPU usage which eventually caused lags, more battery drainage, and on top of all, overload. This feature has been the biggest win and has caused all the hype on the internet, and rightly so. The major drawback of android phones was the continuous lag that it causes and delayed response after using it for a certain period. With this new MIUI 12.5 update, this con will, fortunately, be eliminated and erased from all our devices.
