The arrival of MIUI 11 has not seated some Xiaomi phones as well as expected. In terminals of the Chinese firm with restrained hardware the user experience may leave something to be desired. Going back to MIUI 10 is not an easy and simple solution. There is also no trick that allows us to increase the speed of the system As if by magic. What we can do is apply a series of methods that allow us to improve the phone's performance, and with it, the response speed.

Accelerate animations to improve MIUI speed
The best solution to accelerate a Xiaomi mobile is to reduce the time in which the system animations run. Like any method that involves retouching aspects of Android, modifying this parameter requires the activation of what is known as Developer Settings.
To activate this hidden menu we will have to go to the section on the telephone, where we will find a statement with the name of MIUI Version, which we will have to play a total of seven times. Next, the system will issue a message to pray that we are already developers. Accessing the development menu is as simple as going to the Additional Settings section within the same Settings application.
Within the menu we will have to slide to the following options:
- Window animation level
- Animation level of transitions
- Duration level of the animations
The ideal thing to make the mobile faster is set the figure to .5x in Animation Scale. We can also choose to disable animations completely. In any case, we will notice a much more flexible performance of the device when opening applications and navigating between MIUI options.
Limit the processes that run in the background
Running several applications at once on Xiaomi phones with 1 2 GB of RAM can significantly hinder the performance of MIUI. Therefore, the most recommended is limit the number of processes running in the background in RAM. Again we will have to resort to Developer Settings to modify this parameter.
Once inside the mentioned menu, we will go to the Application section, and more specifically until the option Limit background processes. Depending on the amount of RAM of our phone, we will have to set a figure between 1 and 4.
From tuexperto.com we recommend setting the figure at 2 3. We must take into account, however, that applications reload their content constantly to be limited by the system, especially those that consume excess memory.
Disable automatic updates from Play Store
It's a fact: Google Services consume a lot of resources on Android. Part of this consumption is due to automatic updates from the Google store. They not only slow down the system, they also take up a good deal of RAM space Of the device.
To limit the update of applications we will have to go to the Google Play application and then deploy the side menu. Within this menu we will go to the Settings section and finally to Update applications automatically.
The ideal is leave the option Do not update applications automatically. If we want to update the applications later, we can do it manually through the My applications and games section.
Do not fill the phone memory
It may sound impractical, but the truth is that flash memories significantly reduce their performance when they are full of information. The most effective way to clean system garbage is based on using the MIUI Cleaning application, which We can find in the Security section in Settings or as an independent application with the name of Cleaner.
After opening the application, the system starts searching for all residual system files, as well as duplicate images and videos and large files. All in all, the ideal is click on the option of Thorough cleaning to further clear the phone storage.
Improve game performance with this trick
One of the most relevant news of MIUI 11 comes from the hand of Game Turbo, a system that allows to improve the performance of the games focusing all hardware attention on the execution of installed titles on the phone. Version 2.0 allows you to further improve performance by limiting the execution of processes outside of them.
Accessing this function is as simple as go to the Special Functions section or the Game Accelerator applicationWe can find in the MIUI Desktop. Next we will add all the titles that we want to be optimized with the mentioned game system.
Within the configuration of the application we can adjust a series of additional parameters that will help us torestrict notifications, force screen orientation (vertical and horizontal), limit certain applications In Memory,
Clean the application cache
It does not serve to improve the performance of the system directly but it does increase the space available on the phone. In applications like Google Chrome or Twitter they can be several hundred megabytes, as we can see in the screenshot below.
The cache used by applications can occupy several gigabytes.
Cleaning the cache in MIUI is as simple as going to the Applications section in Settings and then selecting the option Manage applications. Now we just have to select the applications one by one. Within each of the applications we will go to the Storage option and finally to the option to Clear cache memory.
