MIUI 11, MIUI 12, MIUI 12.5 - experience and opinions

Dec 2, 2019
On my Redmi Note 7 I have installed MIUI11. I'm considering to flash newer version. What is your opinions about:
- MIUI11 Android 10
- MIUI 12
- MIUI 12.5
on Redmi Note 7 (lavender).
Any issues, problems, advantages and disadvantages. Which version do you prefer the most?
Do you have any advices? How about phone stability, battery life, everyday usage?

PS. I prefer stable versions.
PS2. Is it true that MIUI 12.5 for lavender is not enhanced edition?

I advise you to stay on that version that would be better for you,i upgraded to mi 11 but i still have lavender as my aosp testing device.
Miui requires high end Hardware....SD660 is a mid range that won't handle more than A10 and the more you upgrade to higher versions of updates the devices hangs and struggles , and yes the 12.5 update isn't enhanced, in fact all Xiaomi.eu Roms aren't stock enhanced by xiaomi they claim.
