HyperOS vs MIUI: Everything Xiaomi Users Need to Know

HyperOS vs MIUI Comparison

I’m back with something really exciting today! We’re diving deep into both Xiaomi’s operating systems. Yes, you’ve guessed it right – we’re talking about the classic MIUI and the brand-new HyperOS!

I remember the days when the first MIUI came with the Xiaomi Mi 1 in August 2010. Fast forward to October 2023, and we’ve got the fresh and innovative HyperOS, making its debut with the Xiaomi 14.

In this post, I’m going to walk you through a detailed comparison of HyperOS vs MIUI. We’ll talk about all the cool stuff, the changes, and what makes each of them unique. So, buckle up, and let’s get started!

Lock Screen

First things first, let’s talk about the lock screen. The new OS comes with very unique and fully customizable Lock Screen. You can play around with the font styles, and clock format, add some depth effect to your wallpaper, and even add some filters. It’s all about making your phone look as cool as possible. On the other hand, MIUI’s lock screen is very boring and simple.

It introduces a new section where you can easily switch up your Always-On Display styles, pick new icons for your home screen, and even change the font straight from the settings app. With MIUI, you’d need to Xiaomi Theme Store to do all of this.
