    How and which custom rom should be used in Xiaomi phones

      Darknoor, 21 Dec 2021Miui isn't really that bad, if only they fix their bugs.it is that bad, for instance something as simple as adjusting the brightness is incredibly annoying because you have to drag the slider because taps aren't allowed, it has an insane amount of bloatware, they don't allow gcam to use the full resolution of the camera and 5 GHz wifi is region locked(yes i know it does not affect you, but still) etc.

        I like top specs, but for me last couple year, phones just are "good enough" (fast, good camera etc, it all depends which class you buy ofc) 🎅

          looks like it'll be Hot and Unstable Snapdragon flagship too

                  If the next Mi optimises the MIUI13 to match the SD8Gen1, it will becomes a beastly beast of a beast!
                  I doubt Xiaomi will do anything more than a few tweaks and new themes for Miui13 though, a truely missed opportunity for them not to only lead but also ditch all issues with current Miui and start fresh.

                            Good to see Xiaomi started to working on compact phone.
                            In past 2 or 3 years Xiaomi spend lots of money on smartphone inside design and battary------key of making a success compact phone.
                            In 2021 we see Mi 11Lite(thinnest and most light 5G phone except more smaller iPhone 12/13Mini) and Xiaomi Civi.
                            Both Mi12/12X (6.2in) and Mi12Pro(6.5in) is smaller than this year Mi11 series(6.8in),and we can see nearly every flagship spec in Mi12Pro now.
                            In March or April,2022 we will see new top tier 6.8in screen Mi12Ultra(or renamed into Mix series) with greatest camera hardware(dual telephoto,biggest main sensor)

                              Here's hoping Xiaomi kills it this year with all the buzzkills from Realme/Oppo/OnePlus and their lackluster launches. BBK rotting, Xiaomi flourishing.

                              Just praying Xiaomi doesn't resort back to their old ways of rebranding models and starts with global model systems to be released everywhere. For their flagships, at the very least.

                              Or else the only option remains is the ancient monolithic giant viz. Sammy, which I have kept as the lastest lastester last option to go to.

                                sunhhuyvchai, 21 Dec 2021we need miui 13 Look this:

                                  xiaomi 11 lite also fail model... what for xiaomi 12...
                                  go & to improvement. make sure xiaomi have technical support. i make complain 2 weeks already but no action taken, no one call myself.

                                    Will be a good release for sure.

                                    My first Xiaomi phone is the MI 11 Ultra which i really like. Im sure it will work for 1 more year, phones are so strong in specs now, so for the first time i dont feel the needs for buying a new phone.
                                    I like it more then my former S21 ultra.

                                    The Xiaomi 12 series will be released with MIUI 13 and i will bet on miui will be one of the best in 2022. Some phones already got miui updates.

                                    I just both the 12 and 12 pro will get the sd 8 gen 1 chip

                                      I can not wait 😍

                                        sunhhuyvchai, 21 Dec 2021we need miui 13 Will coming the same day for some top models.
