MIUI 9 now has been officially unveiled in the form of first developer beta rom and this iteration of MIUI is said to be faster and responsive then the previous iterations.

MIUI 9 is based on Android 7.0 Nougat, and apart from Nougat features like split screen, it boasts of faster app launch time, a more dynamic resource allocation for a fluid experience, and other smart features and improvements.

Excited so let’s get started.

MIUI 9 vs MIUI 8 (Highly recommended)

For better understanding do watch the video.


Now before starting I would like to mention that for this speed test I am using the snapdragon variant of Redmi note 4 and both the devices are reset to stock. The back variant of Redmi note 4 is running the developer beta rom of MIUI 9 and the white variant is running the latest stable version of MIUI 8. Now I will be doing 2 rounds of speed test, in first round I will be testing the load time of system apps and in the second round the third party apps then we normally use.

So let’s start with firing the stop watch, now as you can see both the MIUI 9 as well as MIUI 8 is loading the system apps at the same speed but MIUI 9 is seems to be a second faster than the MIUI 8 which is not a major difference.

In terms of memory management MIUI 8 seems to be doing better than the MIUI 9. Now as you can see MIUI 8 has finished loading apps 1 second faster than MIUI 9 which is good but it doesn’t conclude anything.

So let’s move to the second round where we will be testing the third party apps.

Let’s again start by firing the stop watch, it seems like both loaded the subway surfers at the same time but MIUI 8 takes the lead by loading the YouTube app faster than MIUI 9 and its seems like MIUI 8 is performing better. But now MIUI 9 takes the lead by loading amazon app faster than MIUI 8, it also loaded the Uber app faster.

Now in memory management MIUI 9 has all the apps in the memory and its moving faster to finish the round. The MIUI 9 finishes the round in 1 minute and 4 seconds while the MIUI 8 finishes in 1 minute and 9 seconds and here the MIUI 9 is the clear winner.

As I mentioned earlier that MIUI 9 that I am testing is still in beta but still it manages to beat MIUI 8 in terms of loading apps faster. I am testing MIUI 9 since a week and it really feels faster and snappy, the new quicker animations and improved dynamic resource allocation makes the experience even better.
