Regarding the Android OS, the Redmi Note 12 runs on MIUI 14, Xiaomi’s custom GUI, on top of Android 13. MIUI 14 offers manageable and highly customizable settings, though it has been criticized in the past for being slow and having a lot of useless apps and ads. Hopefully, Xiaomi will improve on this to improve the user experience and reduce unnecessary apps and software.
