[Announcement] [#YouAndMIUI - Vol 12] Full Screen Gestures | Who does it better than MIUI? Discuss & WIN

Monday again? Argh!
Before 2007, nobody believed that touch would be an independent control mechanism for the whole smartphone, technology has progressed a lot since then. Starting with tactile physical buttons, on-screen navigation buttons to immersive modern gestures that just feels natural extension. The evolution has added a whole lot to the user experience and it's hard to switch back to the old system.

One such progression, Full-Screen Gestures were first introduced to the tech world 4-5 years back. This cuts down a lot of clutter from the interface and makes maneuvering a lot easier. MIUI, when it comes to full-screen gestures, has the perfect navigation system for Android, one of the best in the industry in fact (stock Android has still got a lot to catch up).

I have used in other brands also but best suits in MIUI and it has great features of previous app or to go to Home screen even many people who are using android phone and they even don't know how to use it that's the great thing which I like . In full screen display many people don't know how to use it and people say that what have done it I am not able to do something . You have put something extra in it than I told them about the full screen display features of MIUI and many people liked it and in our home only 10 MI phones are there . We all use MI handsets.

I love MIUI full screen gestures but they aren't as smooth as my iphone gestures , sometimes in-app pop-ups occur switching between two apps in MIUI feels hard or it feels like forceful gesture. But I got a solution for this problem as I recently installed an app called "gesturePlus" by Jawomo , There's a lot of customisable gestures we can use for +35 actions(If anyone want try this one). I think if MIUI officials can customise like in this app then it will be unbeatable in this particular segment. These are just my thoughts. Thank you Guys.

It always comes in handy because I don't have to reach bottom of the phone to touch buttons, with gestures I can control in halfway the screen.😎😎

I only follow MIUI gesture .. it's only easy and comfortable for me.  Multitasking and using both applications at once. .. The large display of mobile gives me the option to use it..Also suitable for me.

I'm owning redmi y2 and I also used oppo a5s I used full screen gestures in both smartphones and I found that miui's gestures were more easy and reliable to use with one hand. Thank you
