Master Lu banishes Xiaomi's MIUI from its mobile UI ranking list as Oppo's ColorOS and Realme UI are chosen as the best of the first quarter
It appears the issues that have already been reported about MIUI 12 have had an effect on the latest mobile phone UI ranking from Master Lu. Xiaomi’s Android overlay has appeared in the benchmark's top 10 mobile UI chart in the past, but it seems MIUI has now been banished from the latest table, which will certainly leave the company with a little bit of egg on its face.
The well-regarded ColorOS found on Oppo phones sits in first place with a score of 193.90 points. ColorOS 11 is geared towards user customization of tools and features, carrying on from the big changes that were made by the introduction of ColorOS 7. In second position is Realme UI, with Huawei’s EMUI and Oxygen OS from OnePlus rounding out the top four places.
As well as there not being room for Xiaomi's MIUI, the absence of Samsung’s One UI is also particularly noticeable. Both companies have recently released major updates for their operating systems in the forms of One UI 3.0 (and 3.1) and MIUI 12 (and 12.2/12.5). Clearly they are just not smooth enough to impress the judges at Master Lu.
However, it’s not all doom and gloom for Xiaomi, as Black Shark’s JoyUI 12.5 manages to snag 10th place. Xiaomi has a considerable investment in Black Shark and the JoyUI OS has been based on MIUI in the past. As for non-Chinese OEMs, Asus represents the rest with the modified ROG UI skin taking ninth position in the chart.
