There is no doubt that one of the strengths that we find in any Android mobile device is the customization they have. And it is that, even depending on the software layer you have, they will offer us a greater number of possibilities. This is the case of Xiaomi mobiles, which offer us even options to be able to change both their effects and the animations that we continually see on the smartphone to our shape.
For this reason, it will always be good to know each of the alternatives that we can find in the mobile phones of the Chinese firm with MIUI. In addition, it will not matter if you have a low, medium or high-end smartphone, everything will depend on the version of the software layer itself. Therefore, the more updated the version of the software on your mobile device, the more possibilities you will find. So, pay attention to discover each of the tools that you have at your fingertips.
Completely change the effects with MIUI
Among the different configurations that we will find in every smartphone of the Chinese company thanks to having MIUI, its customization layer is the adjustment of the effects that its terminals have. And the best of all is that within the term effects, we will teach you to change both the one that handles the transitions on your smartphone, as well as the sound one.
And it may be that you have not yet been able to discover on your own, but the truth is that this functionality is what is “shown” when anyone slides their finger on the touch screen to go from one initial page to another within the interface of a mobile device. For this reason, the transition effect is the fact of how we can move between one panel to another within our Android phone. Therefore, if you are already tired, these are the steps you will need to follow to change them:
- Access your smartphone screen settings by pinching on the home panel.
- Then, click on the Settings option.
- Enter the Transition Effects section and choose between the possibilities: Slide, Fade, Tilt, Page, Cascade, Rotation and Cube.
- Finally, click on Done to save the option you have selected.
In the event that you want to completely change those effects related to sound, we will have to go into the Settings menu itself that comes by default on the mobile phones of the Chinese firm. And it is that, with the passage of time, the more we will tire of the same effects that our smartphone does. Therefore, these will be the steps that you must take into account to be able to access them and modify them to your needs:
- Enter the MIUI settings on your Xiaomi phone.
- Click on the Sound and vibration section.
- Swipe the screen until you reach the Sound Effects option.
When we are in this section, we will find all the options that our terminal will have: Adjust sound to headphones, Equalizer, Volume adjustment. We will even have a more complete control of the headphones, if we are one of those users who spend the day with their helmets on: Remote control buttons and Assign buttons.
Make your Xiaomi animations faster
Although they are the only functionalities that MIUI will put at our fingertips. Another feature that we must assess whether or not we want to modify to increase the customization of our smartphone from the Asian firm, will be the fact of accelerating the animations of the system itself. And it is that, with this simple configuration that we will show you, we will be able to adjust the speed of the different transitions that the animations of our mobile device carry out.
But why are we going to change it? This setting will depend more on the type of user they are and the demand you need in terms of the performance of your smartphone. Therefore, we will leave you the necessary steps so that you can accelerate the MIUI animations, or even deactivate them if you have tired of them.
In addition, one of the key points of this last alternative is that the battery consumption will also be reduced, since the fact that the mobile needs to perform more because of the animations makes the energy consumption higher. Especially for those smartphones that do not have a powerful processor and a large capacity battery.
To do this, we will have to follow the following steps from our Xiaomi device:
- Access your phone’s settings.
- Click on the Additional Settings section.
- Enter the Accessibility section> Vision.
- Turn Remove Animations on or off.
In this way, you will completely say goodbye to animations, but if in your case you only want them to go faster, you will have to carry out the following process:
- Go into the settings.
- Click on Additional Settings.
- Access the Developer Options section.
- Inside we will have to look for the Animation Level sections.
Once we have reached this point, we will have to access the three animation sections that we will find: Window, transitions and duration. Once inside each option, we will have to select the value we want, the lower it is, the faster we will make the system go more fluid and faster than before. And also, we will make the transitions between the different menus faster, as well as the speed when opening and closing apps increases.
Say goodbye to the old start of your mobile
Another strong point that reached the software layer of Xiaomi phones with MIUI 12 was the fact that we can change the starting effect of our terminal when it is turning on. That is, we will make the theme that will appear every time we turn on our mobile device is totally different.
To be able to modify this option in a terminal of the Asian firm, the first thing you should know is that it will be necessary to have MIUI 12. Then, we will only have to download a theme that has any type of movement, whatever it is. In this way, we can further customize our terminal. To achieve this, follow the following process:
- Access the Xiaomi Themes app.
- Click on your profile icon.
- Go to the Customize theme> Boot image section.
- Then choose between some that you have in your terminal and click on it.
