BUGS REMAINS :
1. Swipe up to homescreen didn't show Picture in Picture (PIP) window. Explanation and bug report : http://en.miui.com/thread-3944033-1-1.html
Really good update! They managed to fix the UI glitch for Recents screen and screen flickering (which is really bugging me lately). Plus, they add a lot of new features and GAME TURBO improvements in this update too!
EXTRA NOTES: I heard really disappointing news recently. All device who use Global Beta ROMs will stop getting updates after 1st July.
If this really happens, it is really a sad decision for everyone including me. I hope Xiaomi can at least limit this policy only for older budget devices. Flagship should at least get 2 years of full workable software experience including having access to Stable and Beta update channel. This is not fair to the newer device and flagship devices. Please reconsider back the policy again, Xiaomi. Thanks.
