After the surprising announcement made by the Microsoft that they were working with Xiaomi to release a downloadable Windows Phone ROM for the Mi4, some selected members of the press had the opportunity to test the new Windows ROM on the device itself.
According to some of the testers online, the ROM looked great and worked quite well considering it was a technical preview. Oddly, they also found the overall ROM slightly confusing to use, although this may be because if their unfamiliarity with Windows Phone.
Some testers also felt that the ROM helped the Mi4 feel unique, and that it allowed the Mi4 become less similar to the iPhone.
We’re still waiting for more news about the downloadable Windows Phone. Hugo Barra has clarified that Windows Phone will not be able to dual-boot with Android and that Windows Phone will be installed in a similar fashion to any custom ROM.
