  1. wow!! they added some cool features in the Nougat update and many have been waiting for the split screen feature, wish it contains the DOuble tap to wake up as well which was missing on 6.0 but it’s sad that they r not upgrading the majority of Xiaomi phones like Redmi note3 and Redmi 3S users in India with the Nougat goodness, they were really looking forward to it but now it seems like there is no point waiting for it, on the other side all the Mi5 users in India will be happy to hear this news!!

  2. Really good move by enabling the people to uninstall system apps .I remember when MIUI was just another custom ROM that one could choose if they prefered the iOS like theme and now they’ve reached such heights with it 🙂

  3. Picture in picture mode is actually a feature google is trying to bring to the Android O or Android 8.0 which hasn’t even reached beta testing yet. And Xiaomi has already started working on this and release to the marshmallow devices too? Wow. That is something that doesn’t happen everyday. An OEM working neck to neck with google and trying to release android 8.0 features to android 6.0 devices.
