Hello everyone! We all know that since MIUI 12.5 Enhanced, MIUI set default status bar and notification icons as app launcher icons (colorful) while stock Android uses monochromatic icons in the status bar.

This option can be easily changed in settings > Notifications and control center > status bar > "Use app icons for notifications".

Since I'm very undecided in which option looks better i want to hear your thoughts!

Example of stock monochromatic and colorful icons can be found in the attachments.

As an AOD user (with saturn theme) i particularly love the monochrome version which are by far more elegant.
Anyway... since i flashed back to global stock 12.5.10 on MI11 the option ("Use app icons for notifications") you are mentioning is not there anymore...
which miui/phone are u using ?
Thanks!

I prefer monochromatic ones on lower DPI, details get lost on the colored ones, but from icon shape, I can still tell what the notification is from.
