Habitually, you perform specific tasks by pressing physical buttons on your smartphone or tapping on the front screen. But Xiaomi’s MIUI has introduced a new and innovative way to trigger an action, command, or shortcut by tapping on the back of your phone.

Yes, I am talking about the “Back Touch” option. Using the Back Touch feature you can set your Xiaomi mobile to react on double or triple tap on the back. That tapping can perform a variety of actions, such as opening the home screen, taking a screenshot, opening the camera, muting your phone, etc.
