ROM of the Week: MIUI

ROM of the Week is dedicated to highlighting our favorite custom ROMs and builds for Android users. If you’re the type who likes to tinker and push their device to new limits then this column is for you.

Note that this isn’t the sort of thing that every AndroidGuys reader will enjoy; however, it can be an eye opener. Our hope here is that we help you discover something new and exciting that you can do with your favorite smartphone. Enjoy!

This week’s ROM of the Week goes to MIUI, which is a different ROM as opposed to other ones that have made the cut.  What makes MIUI unique is that it isn’t about all the tweaks you can do, but the appearance of how your Android OS looks.  Now I’m not saying you can’t customize certain aspects, but if you’re really looking for unique themes and just want a change of pace, while still having a battery friendly and snappy ROM, MIUI should be first on your list!

MIUI kind of reminds me of how iOS would look on Android, however MIUI packs plently of unique features and you still have that feeling that you are the boss of your phone.  MIUI is not just a beginners ROM just because it looks “Awesome”!  It is a ROM built for the masses.  When MIUI was developed, its creators main priority was to provide a ROM that contained features people truly wanted and that is what they have done.  It truly is different!


Here is a short list of features that can be found on MIUI:

  • Themes
  • Storage Management
  • Power Management
  • App Permissions
  • Tons of UI Changes

There are really so many UI changes that its hard to pick just even a few because they are all worth noting. However, in the slideshow below or the pictures on the next page really breaks down alot of the ROM’s functionality, so check them out!

Overall, the MIUI is smooth, fluid and something different!  When people grab my phone they don’t even think its an Android device, but as they start going through they are really impressed with the fine details that make this ROM great!

Device Support

MIUI is a Chinese based developer so a lot of their device support goes to Chinese manufactured phones, but you can still find some popular devices here!

The features really speak for themselves and thanks to user @noodles90 for all the hard work in putting these together! Check out the features below or if you’re having JavaScript issues, you can check them out on the next page.
