The branded Xiaomi shell for Android in the MIUI 12 version has brought many features expected by users. However, the updated users of international versions of Xiaomi, Redmi and Poco smartphones have a number of claims to the Xiaomi.
First, numerous users since the release of the MIUI 12 in China are asking to run the same dynamic themes “always on” display (AoD, Always-on-Display) with a wide range of options for the international market. However, Xiaomi representatives in the official community note that the feature is intended exclusively for China and may never appear in global firmware.
Global users also complain about problems with the “always on” display function. For some, the screen remains active only for 10 seconds on devices like Mi 10 Lite 5G. Judging by the support team response, this is not a bug or a failure, but an optimization of the system. Such optimization can only be disabled through the developer settings, which is obviously not for all users.
Another problem is that the brightness of the “always on” display suddenly changes, it can change randomly. Other users complain that the brightness is too low and there is no way to adjust it manually.
