New navigation gestures system sometimes feels sluggish compared to previous generation gesture.
Steps tried: Clean and dirty flash on Mi 8 (dipper TWRP 3.3.1-2 mauronorio)

BUGS FIXED
- Fix
data usage settings do not follow SIM card choices issue.

REMAINING BUGS
1. Dynamic font-weight feature doesn't work in Second Space (Make the entire UI appears thin).

Greeting guys! Been long time since I review beta ROMs and here it comes, MIUI 12!

This is the first version of the new MIUI so its to be expected to have lots of bugs and glitches.
Anyone face same performance issue like me too? I hope the future builds will solve this.
Anyway, gotta say that pan and zoom on video support is the one I've been waiting long time ago
and they deliver it! Great job Xiaomi and Xiaomi.EU developers :D

Heya! Nice review!
I don't know if this is the right place to ask but I really cannot find super wallpapers! I'm on Mi 9T, why does this happen? :(

Thanks man! Your post are appreciated. Think that I'll wait a couple of iterations before updating to 12.

Ooh. Im curious as to why your gmail didn't use the icon xiaomi.eu put. I assume this is what happened
1. You didnt have Gmail installed
2. Opened ultra battery saver mode without touching the miui_mod_icons while you already have Chrome and Photos installed.
3. You modified the miui_mod_icons folder.
4. Opened the Ultra battery saver mode.
5. Then there you go.
Is that correct?
Then there you have Youtube vanced with the mask and it isn't square since there was no square youtube vanced icons in the zip nor xiaomi.eu. So basically it makes icons have curved edges unless it has a square icon like that chrome and photos in the miui_mod_icons.

Anyway I tested and here are my test results:
NOTE: All apps are first time installation and thus the first time they appeared in ultra battery saver mode. The miui_mod_icons folder I use is the same as the zip above but removed some app icons that I dont use and will never AFAIK but didnt touch the icons_mask.png etc..

1. Opera news - I deleted miui_mod_icons before I opened the ultra bttry savr mode.
2. Spotify lite - I have miui_mod_icons folder WITH a spotify lite icon inside. And the icon that appeared in ultra battery saver mode is identical to the icon inside.
3. VPNhub - I have the miui_mod_icons folder but NO vpnhub icons inside.

I installed Gmail before enter Ultral Saving, as i remember, Gmail had it icon from begining, not Xiaomi.eu one.
