Software - Andorid 9.0 Pie with MIUI Global 10.2.6.0

It’s no surprise that after so many iterations of MIUI, some parts of it is still the same since its inception – like the lack of an app drawer. The launcher is still very iOS-like and there is no option to enable the app drawer.

With that said, the settings menu is still as convoluted as ever. The location of some settings like the screen timeout is in “lock screen & password” menu. This is just one of the settings that I will immediately change after getting the phone and they are just hidden somewhere deep in the convoluted settings menu.

The Mi 9’s AI button is the same as the Mi Mix 3 whereby it is quite versatile in terms of how it works. There is a slew of shortcuts that it can do, and I once again applaud Xiaomi for having this option. Though the system-wide dark mode is not implemented here.

Other buttons can perform gesture shortcuts as well – like double pressing the power button to launch the camera and such. On another note, the Mi 9 has Widewine L1 support so you can Netflix and chill in full HD.
