Reading modes have been offered in multiple forms by phone manufacturers. Paper colour mode is an interesting choice, and something that has worked to good effect for many years. Having said that, we’re not sure if a phone’s screen will be big enough to justify use of this effect. These are the things Xiaomi must be testing out with the developers, before rolling it out for everyone.
