Big screen phones have a drawback of using it to both hands. Sometimes it’s not easy to hold with both hands. So for Xiaomi users it’s no more. Because they have inserted a feature called ‘One hand Mode’.
Just swipe left/ right from your home button and your screen will be of 4 inch or 3.5 inch size to left or right side.
2. Boost Your RAM
In previous interface you were able to boost your RAM using your left home button, still you can do that but now left home button works in two way. If you long press then you will able to change your wallpaper, themes, app position and other. While for Boosting your RAM just press left home button one time and you will get option to kill your running apps.
Tips: 1. You can lock any app to continue running by sliding down their icon.
2. You can also enable the automatically boosting after 2-3 days.

If you are using Xiaomi phones in front of others then 90% of chances to he/she ask your phone to see its features. Sometimes you may have to hide all your private data from your parents or children. In that case you can hide your desired apps one by one or simply enable guest mode and enjoy.

6. Restrict Data for Any App or Monthly Usage
This one is very powerful feature of the Xiaomi phone. I am personally using this feature in my Xiaomi Mi3 phone. I have used this feature in my other phones but Xiaomi has perfect accuracy of data usage warning.
In MIUI, you can set your monthly data usage limit or you can also restrict data for any data sucker app which you don’t want to allow to use your valuable data.

While in some cases if you are heavy user of smartphones with good battery power then you should also use this feature to save your battery life.
