Xiaomi phones are the best value phones. You get the best hardware at any price point. What lets the phone down is the Software MIUI which is quite resources hungry and also not so easy to use.

If you want to get the best out of Xiaomi phones I suggest installing custom ROM. Installing custom ROM is not for the faint-hearted as you will lose the warranty of your device and you might brick it too. You do it at your own risk and take the responsibility upon yourself.

Following are steps common for installing Custom ROM on Xiaomi phones:

  1. Unlocked bootloader: This takes a minimum of 7 days. This will format your mobile so make sure you back things up. This tutorial will help you achieve this
  2. Install TWRP: TWRP will need to access mobile in recovery mode. Check out for more.
  3. Select your Custom ROM: Check out your specific Custom ROM from site. This is the best site to search for ROM and also you will get support on how to install ROM. Generally, Pixel ROM and LineageOS are some of the best ROMs to try.

The full process of installing ROM should take around 1 to 2 hrs. And you will lose all your data on the mobile. So make sure you backup everything before starting the process.
