New MIUI 6 – Is it an Android or an iPhone?

The Chinese phone brand Xiaomi has announced MIUI 6, the latest version of their Android-based OS. The new version involves major design changes to give it a flatter and more colorful look and is launched with the slogan “Less is more”. Xiaomi themselves says it is designed to be intuitive and that you should be able to use it without any instructions.

The screenshots of the new version makes you wonder is if another company didn’t already come to the same conclusion of what is really intuitive. MIUI 6 really resembles IOS 7 in so many ways! take a look at these screenshots (MIUI to the left)
