There would be a time for you to feel that MIUI is no longer cool. Well, that’s entirely up to you. MIUI is, for us, still the perfect ROM for Xiaomi devices.
In case if you are at that time, feeling bored with what MIUI delivers to you, you can try replacing the official ROM with any custom ROM.
Need a suggestion? If we may, we would like to suggest you LineageOS and Pixel Experience.
The first one has longe standing good reputation and acknowledgement from the third-party Android community. The last one has been very popular lately even being as what we consider it a new kid on the block.
Its key features along with cool stylish user interface fetched from Google Pixel are the most tempting advantages of the ROM.
The name Pixel Experience shows exactly what this ROM is going to give you.
The ROM is based on AOSP despite its CAF-based builds have been available for a while for some devices. Being AOSP means bloatware-free experience.
The ROM is so cool and it gets regular updates. Recently, its developer announces new features coming in the latest update.
