  1. I live in Romania. I’ve changed the region in India and now I can download themes finnaly!!! Thank you very much!!! My gf mobile (mi note 2) had error when downloading theme, error 4001. My mi5s plus same. Thank you!!!

  2. Wow ever since I changed my phone’s region from Singapore to India, all the features in my xiaomi redmi 3s phone has changed alot and I love how the India region MIUI 10 can allow me to change fonts! xD The calendar, app vault, browser, music and video player has changed alot and I am very satisfied w the change 😀 The only issue is that my phone kept showing notifications about India’s bollywood music and other affairs in India lolll cos I’m not an Indian, I’m a Chinese. But overall, I think I will not change the region back to Singapore anymore as the India region MIUI 10 is superb and I feel like I’m using a high-end device even though my phone is not 😀 Thank you for suggesting me to change to India region!! xD It really helps alot!!!!
