A few days ago I came across a custom ROM for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G (WCDMA) which is a bug free ROM providing Android Lollipop experience. Here is my review of the ROM.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G (WCDMA) is a beast of a device with MIUI 5 ROM (based on Jelly Bean) pre-installed, powered by MediaTek MTK6592 Octa Core Processor with 2 GB RAM, 8 GB Flash storage, 5.5 inch HD display & many more high end specs.
VR 11.0 is a KitKat 4.4.2 based Custom ROM to give Android Lollipop experience on Xiaomi Redmi Note 3G (WCDMA). It has a Cool Boot Animation, Decent Battery Backup, Pleasant Appearance, Smooth Operations & Stunning Sound Quality.
Cool Boot Animation :
A Cool Boot Animation with moving dots that reminds of former Windows logo formation.
Decent Battery Backup :
A full charge lasts a decent 24 hours (approx.) with 8 hours of Screen On Time which is a fair performance by the standards of today’s Smart Phone Battery Backups.
Pleasant Appearance :
It has stunning high quality Material Design Lock Screen & Home Screen Wall Papers based on Android L material design.
Google Camera :
Google Camera App enhances camera experience with Photo Sphere, Panorama, Lens Blur & HDR.
Nova Launcher :
This ROM uses Nova Launcher which helps user in detailed & minute customisation of device display, animations, styling etc. like :
- Desktop Grid for Icons (upto 12X12),
- Icon Size, Style & Layout,
- Home Screen Indicator Style & Color,
- App & Widget Drawer,
- Folder Styling,
- Gesture & Input,
- Unread Counter (Optional feature needs additional app to be installed), &
- Backup & Import.
Other important & useful Apps pre-included in the ROM are as under :
I used this ROM for 4 continuous days & it worked smoothly without any bugs. My overall experience with this ROM has been satisfactory but hardcore MIUI fans like me are going to miss following awesome features :
Security (Anti Virus, Cleaner, Permission Manager etc.),
Private Messages &
many other features which are added to MIUI regularly.
