Xiaomi has already entered India with a lot of hope and expectations attached to it. And with the backing of the famous Hugo Barra, the company is expected to make a big impact in the Indian smartphone market. A huge example can be drawn with the release of the new Mi3 handset.

The MIUI interface has been brought to life via Xiaomi Tech. It is primarily a stock and aftermarket firmware that's meant for smartphones and tablets. The big difference here is in the fact that the interface features a heavily modified and hard-coded user interface.

This hard-coded user interface takes away the Android app drawer, while visual comparisons can be made with Apple's iOS and Samsung's TouchWiz UI. But most importantly, it offers that fresh new look at Android that the OS has been craving for so long.

There are a host of themes that you could choose from with the MIUI at your disposal. And happily, the list keeps increasing everyday. So expect more new themes on the long run.

It's all good when you are on a stock Android since you will get the data usage feature built-in into your system. But older Android devices don't offer the same. However, with MIUI's data planner, expect the OS to warn you when you are about to exceed your data limit. In fact, it will even show a list of apps that are eating away most of the data.

Sure apps and games will flow by now with the device only being a new unit just out of the box. But this one will be required in the long run. And with that in place, expect the phone to be as good as new with apps never slowing down due to the overcrowding of apps.

How many times have your friend passed you down a phone number or a message while in a call, and you have failed to take down anything but the number involved? Well, with the dial pad-based note taking ability, expect all your notes to be accumulated in a single place under the friend's contact who passed it on to you in the first place.

Remove all the unnecessary apps from your phone with this one simple tool. Just plain drag and delete the number of apps you want deleted, and your will shall be done without even touching other apps that are there in the window.
