MIUI 10 Stable ROM for Redmi Note 5: Features
The Xiaomi Redmi Note 5 is one of the best selling smartphones in India during the last two quarters. It’s good to see Xiaomi rolling out the update right after the Redmi Note 5 Pro. Talking about the MIUI 10 Stable update for the Redmi Note 5, it brings a plethora of new features and carries a build number- MIUI 10.0.2 OEGMIFH.
Features wise, the Redmi Note 5 users will notice an all-new interface for notification drawer and MIUI 10 is tailored for full-screen devices. The Redmi Note 5, being a Full Screen display smartphone can take full advantage of the new gesture navigation Xiaomi introduced with the MIUI 10. Furthermore, Xiaomi has tweaked the whole audio sounds on MIUI 10 and they now give users a refreshed feel. Xiaomi has used natural sounds of forest, beach, drizzle and so on. I have used the MIUI 10 Beta on Redmi Y2 a while back and the sounds of the whole interface including the unlocking device one felt different than what we see on general smartphones.
Xiaomi says the MIUI 10 make your device faster and the same continues with the Redmi Note 5 too. A few system applications such as Clock and Notes will be replaced with newer versions in the MIUI 10 Stable update.
