Xiaomi had released their first smartphone in India, the Mi3 along with other budget devices like Redmi 1S and Redmi Note. Xiaomi Mi3 went on sale last month with huge response from India and selling out in seconds! The device comes with a 5 inch Full HD display with Corning Gorilla glass and runs on 2.3Ghz Quad Core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB RAM.

We had done the detailed review of Xiaomi Mi3 and one of the most important aspect of the device is MIUI, which is a custom ROM from the company and runs on top of Android 4.4 KitKat. MIUI is customizable with themes, wallpapers, lockscreen, boot animations, fonts, dial pads, messaging and more.
