Xiaomi’s MIUI is quickly gaining popularity, and with that comes a devoted community of tinkers and developers. While Xiaomi has its own dedicated staff that ports MIUI to devices and adds new features, MIUI’s devoted community ports titles unofficially various devices, and they are now at 198 total devices unofficially supporting MIUI v5.
While these devices haven’t been tested by Xiaomi (and they offer no guarantees or warranties) the community tests them and problems are usually sorted out fairly quickly.
Along with Cyanogenmod, smartphone users now have an additional choice over the stock Android ROM or the flavor the device’s OEM puts on it.
Gizchina News of the week
New this week’s additions include the Coolpad 7298A (which got on Andi’s Top Ten Dual SIM Android Smartphones list) and two more iterations of the Samsung Galaxy S II (Samsung E120K and Samsung E120S).
Some of the phones that are on the unofficial support list are also supported by Xiaomi officially, so it is up to you which one you want to choose. Generally, community builds have a few extra features but official ones are more stable and come in OTA updates.
