Nice feature. I also like how MIUI issues extensive warnings, and even makes one wait, before enabling certain functions.

I thought Pure Mode would be a feature to switch to stock UI as ASUS did with their ROG Phone. That's a shame since Xiaomi phones running stock UI via custom ROM really shows a truly significant performance boost than MIUI.

Does this "Pure Mode" prevents malicious spam ads integrated into MIUI system apps by Xiaomi themselves?

So, they want to make Android more like iOS :P You know, locked down prison everyone keeps whining about so hard all the time...

I do like how Xiaomi included antivirus as part of OS (last time I used MIUI (I think it was MIUI 10) it had avast! engine and own cloud) that automatically checked every sideloaded app. I still recommend using free antivirus from reputable brands on any Android phone. DrWeb Light, Bitdefender Free or Dr.Safety (Trend Micro). avast! is also pretty nice if you don't mind the extra unnecessary stuff and some ads.

Seems that Xiaomi really cares about users and tries to make everything better.
