MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM with Android Nougat 7.0 Complete Review


MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM - Complete Review

Howdy? As you are reading this post the chances are, you haven't got the MIUI 9 Stable update yet.
Or you've chosen not to upgrade your phone.

Whatever is the situation!
Here in this post, I'll tell you about my complete experience with this latest update by MIUI Team.

The MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM started rolling out on 2nd November 2017 after the big revelation day by Xiaomi India.

At the same day, they further introduced their new series of phones which is Redmi Y. As per declaration, The "Y" here represents the Youth.

They stated that this series will be selfie-focused and revealed their brand new devices of this series, Redmi Y1, and Redmi Y1 Lite. If you are appealing to these devices, refer to my complete review for Redmi Y1 Lite, here.

There's no suspense that the Redmi Y series will receive the MIUI 9 update sooner than the older Xiaomi devices.

Well thankfully, I'm using Redmi Note 4 which is the No. 1 Selling smartphone in India.
So they could not ignore us, and this phone was placed in the initial batch to receive the MIUI 9 OTA Updates.

But, They pushed their OTA Updates in many batches. So it took 6 and a half day for me to get the MIUI Global Stable update for my Redmi Note 4.

My earlier version of the MIUI was 8.5.8 Global Stable ROM, running on Android Nougat 7.0.
There's no doubt that I hoped for at least Android 7.1 but they've disappointed us.

The update was only 266 MB, So I had already guessed that there'as no update to the Android version. 'And I was right'

Even though, there was a long list in the changelog. Here's the screenshot of the updater app:

Screenshot of MIUI 9 OTA Update


While the update size was only 266 MB, it took a long time to execute the process and reboot the device. It went so long that I was thinking, I might have broken the device.

But it rebooted successfully with the latest MIUI 9 Global Stable ROM v9.0.3.0.

As I told you above, It is still the Android Nougat 7.0 while the Redmi Y1 series is coming with Android Nougat 7.1 pre-installed.

Let's have a look at the home screen after upgrading to MIUI 9 on Redmi Note 4:

MIUI 9 Home Screen with Default Theme Screenshot


As we'll move on to the features and changelogs now, Let's first talk about the most awaited feature of the MIUI 9 and the most prominent feature of Android 7.0 or above.

You might have already heard about it. It's the Split-Screen feature.

The Split-Screen Feature


The Stock Android already had this feature with their Nougat update.
But due to customizations, it is not available in the MIUI 8, even if you are on Android Nougat.

Anyhow, they've learned that people are crazy about this unique feature of the Stock Android. And they too brought it to the MIUI 9.

What is the Split-Screen feature?


The Split-Screen feature allows you to use two apps at the same time on the same screen. 

For example, 
You can browse the internet on the top of the screen while chatting with friends on WhatsApp at the bottom of the screen. Or...

You can read your favorite stories on Medium while chatting on Allo. Or anything else... 'Together at the same time, on the same screen'.

Split-Screen Example

The only requirement is that the app should also uphold this feature. And the good news is, most of the apps already support the split-screen feature.

Now let me explain how to use this feature in MIUI 9...

How to use the Split-Screen feature?

Step 1: Open the apps that you want to use simultaneously. I'm using the Medium app and Google Allo for example.

Step 2: Now go to 'Recents' by pressing the Recent button on the left of the phone (by default setting). The recent button is marked with 3 lines.

Step 3: Now click on "Split screen" on the recent screen. See the screenshot below for example:

Click on Split Screen as shown on the screenshot

Step 4: Now drag any of the apps above the screen as shown below:

Drag the app to the area shown on the screenshot

Step 5: Now tap on the second app that you want to use simultaneously. See the screenshot below:

Tap on the Second app to activate split screen

You can also exit if you have done it accidentally. To exit split screen before tapping on the second app you can click on the exit button shown on the screen. See the screenshot above.

After tapping on the second app, you can use both the apps together on the same screen.

You can also resize the window of the app by dragging the small button in-between the split screen. See the screenshot below:

Resizing the split screen window

Did you notice? I also resized the window to show you the example.

Now, What about the situation when you want to put the second app on the above screen and vice-versa?

Well, In the stock android it is still a lengthy process. You need to exit the split screen then repeat the steps above.

But in MIUI 9, it is very simple. So they also did some show off at the launching event.

You just need to double-tap on the button shown in the screenshot above, and the apps will switch their places. Big relief, right?

Let me know what you think about this feature? Tweet me @itsBishnuMahali

Now let's move on to the other features and changelogs...

Lightning Fast

The Xiaomi or MIUI Team claims to have the fastest MIUI ever which is almost equal to the stock android.

I don't have anything to measure that but let's talk about my experience.

Yes, it is fast. Faster than MIUI 8 for sure! But I can't say the same when it comes to stock android. No doubt that the stock android is still faster than MIUI 9 and it is quite logical.

While they claim to have the fastest ever UI, you can't really feel them in reality.

Don't get me wrong, I'm comparing it to the stock android in real life experience. Yet, the tests performed by the MIUI Team shows that the MIUI 9 saves an exceptional amount of time.

If you really care about it, you can watch the videos on YouTube. But if you'll ask me, most of them are useless.

So to conclude, I would say, Yes it the fastest Android Skin I've ever used but you can't really differentiate it with the stock android in real life experience.

Better Home Screen Management

This is the 2nd biggest improvement in MIUI after the speedy performance. The home screen editing is also the simpler than ever.

Now you can move multiple apps together by selecting them. And you also get a preview of all the existing screens at the bottom of the screen.

You can move the selected apps without passing all the existing screens one by one. Just select the apps and drag it to any of the screen previews at the bottom.

For me, It's the most beautiful feature of the MIUI 9.

You can also choose any of the screens in the editing mode and make that the default home screen. How good is that?

Have a look:

Better & Easy Home Screen Editing


The Improved Calendar App

The look of the calendar app is still the same but now it has some more features included such as Daily Horoscope, Cricket News etc.

The new calendar also features Football Cards which shows details of the major international football matches.

The calendar has also updated their holiday list for all the countries and now it also shows brief information about them if you tap on the holiday list.

Likewise, Google does with its Google Doodle, MIUI does it with its calendar.

If you will check the day on the calendar it will also show something interesting about the day and you can also read a brief about them.

Here's how all these things look like:

The Interface of MIUI Calendar App

You can manage your subscriptions anytime from the calendar app. You can also rearrange or reorder them as you want. Here's the screenshot of the calendar subscription management screen:

Calendar Subscription Management


That's all the highlights of the MIUI 9. There are some more cool things to show you but I haven't made any video for the Global Stable ROM yet.

But you can watch my MIUI 9 beta ROM review on YouTube here (In Hindi):

How to Create a Blog for Free on Blogger or Blogspot?


Getting Started with Blogger

Have you made your mind to start your blogging career? If yes, there's no better option than the Blogger to get started for free.

Yep! I'm talking about the Google's Free Blogging Platform AKA Blogspot.

Blogger is the world's most popular blogging platform after WordPress.org. Yet, the free wordpress.com has some limitations that I don't like.
And that is the reason I recommend Blogger instead of WordPress. (Note: Only If you can't pay for hosting).

No doubt that WordPress is far better than Blogger in many things. Such as SEO Friendly Elegant Designs, Features, and the Back-end Interface.
But still, you need to pay for WordPress if you don't want to get stuck because of their limitations.

Now you want to compare them right?
If so, I recommend you to read one of my favorite blog writer - Harsh Agarwal's article here.

Or let's continue...

In this article, I will only show you the steps to create your first blog. And some useful tips to grow your career as a blogger. But, I have a lot of useful tips and tutorials coming for you in the future.

If you don't want to miss any of them, don't forget to subscribe to my newsletter here.

Now let's move on to the topic.

To create a blog on blogger, you need a Google Account to Sign in to the Blogger. If you don't have one, you can create it here or you can also create it through blogger.

If you need any help in creating your Google Account, read this article from WikiHow.

Step 1: After setting up your Google Account, go to https://www.blogger.com. The new interface of this website looks like this:

Blogger New Interface

Now Click on any of the links, as shown above in the picture (i.e., "Sign In" or "Create Your Blog").

Step 2: Now you have to Login using your Google Account, i.e., your Gmail ID and Password. If you are already signed in to your Google Account, You'll see the screen as shown below:

Sign in with your Google Account

Now, Click on the "NEXT" button to complete your sign in process and proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Now you have to Confirm your Profile Page on this screen.
By default, it will select your Google+ Profile if you already have it. Otherwise, it may prompt you to create one. Here's how this screen looks like:

Confirm your Blogger Profile

The profile selection here will be your author details for your blog posts. So, make sure it looks as good as possible.

If you don't want to create a Google+ Profile, You also have a choice to switch to the limited Blogger Profile. To do that, you can click on the "Switch to a limited Blogger profile" link as shown below:

Link to Switch to a Limited Blogger Profile
But wait, I don't recommend you to do that. There are several reasons behind it. The Blogger profile is old and limited as mentioned on the link. Whereas, Google+ Profile gives you a lot of extra benefits.

Your readers can follow you using that Google+ Profile. You can keep them updated like Facebook and Twitter. But these benefits are not available with the limited Blogger Profile.

You got it right?

So let the Google+ Profile be your Blogger Profile and click on the "Continue to Blogger" as shown below:

Continue to Blogger

Step 4: Now your Blogger Profile is ready and you can step forward to create your first blog. Here's how the screen will look like now:

Click on "Create New Blog"

Step 5: Now you'll land up on the main Blogger Dashboard. But wait! Your blog is not ready yet.
You still have some more steps left. Let's continue...

In this step you have to click on the "New Blog" or "Create New Blog" option as shown below:

Click on "Create New Blog"

Step 6: Now you have to Choose a Title or Name of your Blog and the Blog Address as well. Make the name as memorable as possible and good.

"If you want to grow big, think it like a brand."
- Bishnu Mahali

I may write about choosing a good brand or blog name later. But for now, you can read How to Choose your Blog Name from WikiHow. OR read from one of my favorite blogger, Harsh Agarwal's - "How to Decide Name of Your Blog?"

After deciding the name of your blog, head over to the screen and type in your Blog Name on the Title box (See no. 1 in the screenshot below).

Next, type the blog address that you want in the address field (See no. 2). This must be unique - otherwise, you'll get an error (See no. 3).

Blog Address Not Aavialable

If the error occurs, the Create Blog button will remain disabled. So, try out different names every time and you'll get it done.

If the blog address will be available. You'll see a blue tick mark on the right side of the address field as shown in the screenshot below.

Blog Creation Page

If this is the case, you're good to go. Next, select a theme for your blog from the choices given in the box no. 2 as shown in the screenshot.

And, click on "Create Blog!"

Ta-da! Congratulations, Your Blog is ready!

Here's how the screen will look like now:

Blogger Dashboard

You can click on the "New post" or "Create a new post" to start writing your first blog post.

In the future articles, we'll learn many things about the blogger. Such as customizing themes, getting or parking a premium domain etc. etc.

So, if you don't wanna miss them, don't forget to subscribe to the My Blogging Newsletter.
For now, you can read my "How to get extra traffic using your old blog posts?" article here.

And hey! If you don't like reading but understand Hindi. Then you can follow my YouTube Channel for the video tutorials on Blogging and much more.

The Best Low Budget Clip/Lapel/Lavalier Microphones for Indian YouTubers




The Best Microphone for Indian YouTubers

If you are reading this post, you might be a YouTuber but even if you're not, this post is going to be very helpful to you.

In this article, I will suggest you the cheap and best microphones for your superior YouTube videos. I still use them for my own YouTube videos too.

We'll also look at some of the most popular microphones used by most of the YouTubers around the world.

So let's begin...

What it is and Why should you use it?


If you are one of those passionate YouTubers, the chances are you already know about it.

In that case, you may only want to explore the products which I recommend. If it is so, you can skip to the bottom of this post.

Otherwise, let me tell you what a lapel mic is.

If you know about the term "Lapel" then you might have already visualized what a lapel mic is. And if not, you're going to visualize it in a few seconds.

Let me show you what we call a "Lapel":


Example of a Lapel


Now you've already visualized it -- Am I right? I know I am.

Yes, it's the same mic that we see every now and then in TV Shows, Seminars, Meetings or your Favorite YouTube Videos.

Here are some pictures for you if you still have no idea what we're talking about:

Example of A Lapel Mic

Example of a Lapel Mic attached with Lapel

Now let's move on to the topic...

The Mics I Recommend & Use Myself


In this section, I'll show you the mics that I use for myself and also recommend you to use. In the next section, we'll see some of the most popular mics used by most of the Popular YouTubers.

Now here's my first recommendation for you:

1. Generic Microphone from Amazon


Generic Lapel Mic from Amazon
Image Source: Amazon IN

Buy From Amazon

When it comes to a better noise reduction and compatibility, I have an another option for you. But still, this is my first recommendation because of its build quality.

Now I'm not telling you that this microphone is not good -- when it comes to noise reduction and compatibility.

It's only because the other one is a little bit better than this one. But the other one lacks the build quality and durability.

Also, the price of the other one is a little bit higher than this Generic one. At the time I bought this microphone, It was priced approx ₹320/- but now the price is dropped to ₹299/-

This Generic Mic is very good in every manner except the compatibility factor. I've tested it and it worked very fine with my phone but it didn't work on my laptop.

In the review video of this microphone, I received a lot of comments telling me that it didn't work with their devices. The comments include many smartphones and PCs. But yet the build quality of this microphone is too good to be neglected.

The Microphone is covered with a hard metal body and the sponge to filter the noises of the wind. The Clip is also made of metal and is very strong to stay attached to your outfit. It has a 3.5mm jack for connecting it to your recording device.

It records the sounds in very good quality and also reduces external noises. The voice recording of this microphone sounds very original compared to the other one.

So to conclude, This mic is very good but there is a chance that it might not work with your recording devices. But the good thing is, you can always return or replace the item if it doesn't work for you.

If you want to watch the complete Unboxing & Review of this microphone and also the comparison with the other one. Here's a video for you in Hindi:



If you are planning to buy this microphone, here is the link to Buy it from Amazon: http://amzn.to/2xWB6dL

Or you can buy this one from Flipkart if you don't like to shop with Amazon: Buy it from Flipkart.

Key Points: 
  • Metal Body (Good Build Quality)
  • Noice Reduction
  • Metal Clip (Good Build Quality)
  • Good Wire Quality
  • 3.5mm Jack Connection
  • Not Compatible with All Devices
Now let's move on to the next microphone that I use and recommend it for you...



2. Sorella'z Portable Mini Lapel Microphone


Sorella'z Mini Portable Microphone

Buy it from Amazon

This microphone is my 2nd recommendation. But when it comes to Noice Reduction and Compatibility, it is the best microphone that I've used till now. It is compatible with the most of the devices and I haven't heard any complaint about this microphone.

The only thing that brings it to the second position is its build quality which is not so good. The wire quality is not good and also the microphone is completely made with plastic.

The clip is also made of plastic which is very weak to hold it to your outfit and gets detached in some cases. "If you can compromise with the build quality, I recommend you to buy this one instead of the Generic Mic above."

Likewise the Generic Mic, I tested it too. And guess what? It worked with all the devices that I have.

It also comes with a 3.5mm jack connectivity along with a 1.5-meter long wire. The wire length was not provided for the generic mic but they are of the same length.

If you would like to watch the complete Unboxing & Review video of this microphone (also the comparison with the generic mic). Watch the video included in this article above.

Want to buy it? Buy it from Amazon: http://amzn.to/2uM3lrr

Key Points:
  • Better Noise Reduction
  • Compatible with Most Devices
  • 3.5mm Jack Connectivity
  • Plastic Body (Light Weight)
  • Low Build Quality

This one is not available on Flipkart. But if would like to buy a similar mic then you can consider this one: http://fkrt.it/pwGQsTuuuN

If you are looking for a microphone suitable for your DSLR then consider buying this one. Make sure to check the reviews because I haven't used it. Here's the link: http://fkrt.it/pQndcTuuuN

Now let's move on to the next section. Here we'll see the most popular microphones used by the most popular Indian YouTubers.






The Popular Microphones among YouTubers


Now in this section, I'll show you some of the most popular microphones used by Indian YouTubers. As I haven't used them, I can't give you a detailed review of them. I'll show you the products only and it is up to you to decide if you want to buy them or not.

The two Flipkart links right above this section are the mics used by My Smart Support YouTube channel i.e., Mr. Dharmendra Kumar.

You might have watched his review video about the microphones. I took the link from the same video.

Here's the Ahuja Mic that he was talking in his video:

Ahuja Clip Microphone

If you would like to buy this one, here is the link again for Flipkart: http://fkrt.it/pQndcTuuuN

The other microphone that is so popular among YouTubers worldwide is Blue Yeti. You might have already heard about it. Here are some pictures and clickable links to buy them if you wish:

Blue Yeti White
Image Source: Amazon IN
This microphone is the lowest priced Blue Yeti Microphone. It will cost you approx ₹7,999/- on Amazon. Again this one is not available on Flipkart.

I have seen this microphone used by Carry Minati i.e., Ajey Nagar and Technical Guruji i.e., Gourav Choudhry. Yet, I'm not sure if it's the same microphone or not.

Here is the other Blue Yeti Microphone that might be the correct one:

Black Blue Yeti
Image Source: Amazon IN

As said above, I'm not sure which is the correct one used by Carry Minati & Technical Guruji. But I'm sure that they've used Blue Yeti in their videos. This black edition comes with a cost of approx ₹20,554/- on Amazon.

If you want to buy any of the Blue Yeti microphones, You have only one choice which is Amazon. Flipkart doesn't have this product on their website.


So that was it. I've shown you the lowest budget clip microphones that I use and also introduced you to the most popular microphones among the famous Indian YouTubers.

Now it's your time to decide which one to buy for yourself. If you have any other questions or suggestions, let me know in the comment box below. I'll be glad to answers your questions.

If you feel this article will be helpful for someone like you and me, please feel free to share it with them. For now, Have an awesome day and Happy YouTubing!

The First Step: Choosing The Channel Type

Think Creative, Think Productive!
For a successful YouTube channel, this should be your first step. Yes, it is so important that you must consider it first of all the steps ahead.

You might get stressed out like the girl above. If you haven't already decided on your channel type. Or, What would you upload to your YouTube Channel?

But it worth it. Talk to yourself and figure out what you would like to do on YouTube.

You may want to upload Howto Videos like we do on Our YouTube Channel. Or you might want to upload your cover songs, cooking recipes, life hacks or whatever it is.

Find out.

Try to go with your passion or hobby otherwise, you will give up at the end. It must be something that you'll love to do again and again.

Success on YouTube is a long journey. If you choose something that you don't love. You might break at some point. Or I should say, You will... break at some point!

The Second Step: Decide The Name of Your Channel

Girl Thinking about Something

Have you thought about your channel name? If yes, Well Done! If not, Your expression might have changed like the girl above.

It seems an easy step. But trust me, if you are not creative enough it can take a lot of effort.

And again it worth it.

For a perfect YouTube channel, a perfect name is a must.

If it takes a lot of time, don't worry about it, but don't choose a name that isn't good enough.

Now you might be thinking, Hey Bishnu, that's good but How would I know if a name is good enough?

Well, there's not a specific answer for that but here are some things that you must consider while choosing the name:

  • Keep it short and simple
  • The name should be memorable
  • Avoid confusing spells
  • Do not mix numbers with the name unless it is so important
  • Make it Unique (I know it's very tough nowadays but you have to try)
  • Check Username Availability on Social Networks (Optional but Important)

Now let's move on to the next step...





The Third Step: Create your YouTube Channel

Go to YouTube, Make A Channel


Well, this is the final step before your channel goes live on the internet. Apart from making the videos of course!

Now you need a logo and channel art for your channel. Should I tell you that it should be attractive and unique? I don't think so. Everyone knows about it.

So go ahead and make a great logo and channel art for your channel. If you are not good enough in design, you should consider someone who can make a great design for you.

If someone can create that for free for you, that's great. If not, consider hiring a professional at your local place or online, on freelancing websites.

If you'll be hunting online designers, I recommend you to go with Fiverr or Upwork.

I am also available on both of these freelancing sites. You can also hire me to make your design here on Fiverr or here on Upwork.

Now that you have done that, go ahead and create your channel on youtube. You can follow the steps instructed in the video above on this post.

In case you already have a youtube channel or account and you just want to change the name of your channel. Watch the video below:



On the other hand, If you have multiple ideas on your mind then you might want to Create Multiple YouTube Channels.

Most of the visitors ask me about how to do that with a single google account. If you also need help, I've already written an article on that, you can read it here.
