1. Ambient Display
The first change on MIUI 11 is the added features on Ambient Display. The ambient Display feature comes with more settings and new designs that can be customized. I know this features is already available in MIUI 10, but there are many settings and new theme options for ambient displays in MIUI 11. The new ambient display comes with a variety of the new ambient display animation, such as kaleidoscope with some unique pattern, and also analog or digital clocks with the latest design updates.
Recently there are also signature and background options for ambient light designs in this MIUI 11. In the signature option you can change the text, alignment and also the color of the writing easily to what you want. for each Ambient display option in MIUI 11 there are many things that you can change compared to the previous MIUI 10 version.
2. Ambient Light Notification
The second new feature is Ambient Light Notification. This feature is pretty much similar to the Samsung Edge lighting feature. It will shine light effect on the side of the phone when there is an incoming notification. There are several choices such as Starlight, Pulse, and also rhythm. The animation designs for ambient light notification on MIUI 11 looks quite fresh and unique. This feature will be very much useful if you think that you need to see and notice the notification updates on your smartphone. especially when the smartphone is on the table.

The fourth feature that I found in the latest MIUI 11 update is the video wallpaper. In MIUI 11, now you can set the video that you’ve recorded and turn it into a live wallpaper. you can set it for home screen, lock screen or both. You can even activate the sound on this live wallpaper video setting if you want. But I prefer not to.
5. Ultra Battery Saver
The next feature is the ultra battery saver. This feature will be very helpful to save your smartphone batteries in emergency situations. this feature reportedly can even save the remaining 5% battery on your smartphone for full day usage. If you activate this features, it will deactivate all features on your smartphone except for the phone call and text message only. the screen color will also turn black and white. This feature is reportedly available in the Chinese version of MIUI 11 and unfortunately for the global version that I used on this Xiaomi Mi 9T, there is still no Ultra Battery Saver feature yet. let’s just wait and hope that this feature is also become available in the next update for the global version.

On this latest MIUI 11 update, It comes with a new design that looks a little different than the preview MIUI 10 icons. the icon on MIUI 11 looks more rounded at the edges. the design throughout the system application also looks pretty much different now.
It’s also noticeable that the icon and font is also changes to Milan Pro. The size and thickness of font can also be adjusted on the setting.

The calculator application at MIUI 11 appears to have several additional features such as features for calculating BMI, age, discount, percentages and also other things that are quite useful in daily use. The currency converters that were previously in the converter tab is now moved to the Finance tab.
The calculator feature in MIUI 11 can also be minimized by pressing the button on the top left. the transparency of the calculator display can also be set by pressing the water drop button next to it.
