10 great MIUI 12 features you should know about

10 great MIUI 12 features you should know about

Today, Xiaomi is known as one of the most recognized smartphone manufacturers and its value-for-money offerings have made huge inroads in several markets around the world. But a lesser-known fact about the Chinese company is that its first-ever product was not a smartphone, but MIUI: the software that runs on most of their phones today.

Between then and now, a lot has changed and MIUI is no longer a custom ROM developed for the Google Nexus One. It’s a full-fledged skin that’s on millions of devices out there and it also happens to be amongst the most feature-rich —  I can attest to this with my experience of using MIUI 12 on several phones.

Which Android TV box should you buy?

Which Android TV box should you buy?

There aren't a ton of Android TV boxes on the market — and considering it's nearly impossible to buy a TV that doesn't have Netflix built in, that might not seem like an issue. But even if your TV does have its own apps, there are still good reasons to use a discrete streaming device: their interfaces are snappier, and it's a lot cheaper to replace a dongle when it's out of date than it is a television.

The Xiaomi Mi 11 survives JerryRigEverything's wrath

Zack Nelson of JerryRigEverything is renowned for his gadget durability tests and teardowns, so it's not surprising to hear that he has a track record of trying to bust up Xiaomi phones. Said record brings up the obvious trends: cheaper phones aren't as durable as those towards the mid- to high-end. So, how will the Mi 11 fare? Not too bad, for the sake of brevity.
