No use reading this article coz when this HyperGarbage comes, it'll not have any of the mentioned features.. All the things we just read are Chinese ROM only!! Never going to buy a Xiaomi redmi or Poco ever again! No customisation options material theming, nothing!! No super icons either!

        Terrible... After update to HyperOS google wallet stops working and no one knows why including google. Simply, it behaves unpredictable, sometimes yes and sometime no. Also my vpn client is not stable ... A don't know why they do these "improvements" like hyperos when they don't know how to do them well. Google should not allow xiomy to make these changes to android at all. Probable it's good time to switch phone to other manufacturer.

              Fast charging stops in Redmi Note 11 after upgrade.

                Hi.. Why Hyperos also have same problem with MIUI 14. When screen recording cannot use external microphone. For example, when you screen recording tiktok live, and you set sound source both ( system & microphone ), tiktok apps microphone not functioning. Seem like 1 app only can use mic at one time. So when you speak during screen recording, participants cannot hear you. You can hear your voice only during screen recording playback. I have no problem when using Realme before switch to Xiaomi.

List packages and what they do and see how much there are. And try start to root and then, throw it away after what you have discovered.

                  Well googo/ appl are shaddy too nowadays but still. They are regulated, and tracked, at least.

                    Sluggish bloated of call-home Chinese PC government spyware . and hard-coded cheap low end ads.

                    Should be forbidden by law in the west. Buy at your own risk.

                              potato4k, 18 Mar 2024Have you actually used TouchWiz and OneUI? Totally differen... moreI've used TouchWiz since Android ICS era (and now I still use Samsung too btw, still hates the new control center lol), that's why I said that. Sure, I can say that OneUI feels more bugless than most of my experience with TouchWiz, and also looks more modern. But icon looks apart, most of the fundamental UX-style are not really different. Just like how they keep retaining the Android 4.x-style app drawer, even though majority of company (OnePlus, Poco, any company that uses Stock Android for example) already uses the scrollable app drawer that introduced in Android 5.
                              I also won't say that HyperOS is a extremely different change compared to MIUI. Heck, I can say that I still hate many new things that they introduced, like "forcing" us to use the separate notification panel and control center on newer models, or iOS-like charging animation (less distractive ofc, but very not original I should said). But I haven't felt any bugs while using it, maybe I'm lucky? (I'm using Xiaomi 12 Lite btw).

                                404, 17 Mar 2024So does One UI. One UI is just TouchWiz/Samsung Experience ... moreHave you actually used TouchWiz and OneUI? Totally different experience, and OneUi is a vast improvements and overhaul in everything..
                                Meanwhile, HyperOS doesn’t even look different than MiUI, and like I mentioned, Xiaomi didn’t even care fixing basic UI glitches. All the so called improvements are just marketing talk with no concrete way to prove it. All reviewers are simply rehashing the same marketing material.

                                  It became a bit slower. I really dont find it any faster, actually appa lags more to open and load.

                                      Chinese brands put OS to lure ppl to think they are not using android, but entirely new OS.
                                      This should be forbidden.
