For this week’s Galaxy Note 3 SM-N900 ROM of the Week, check out MIUI ROM V5!
Based on latest Samsung TouchWiz Android 4.4.2 firmware, MIUI ROM V5 brings you the best of MIUI “UI” layer on top of Samsung TouchWiz firmware.
What does this mean?
MIUI ROM usually is built on CyanogenMod or TouchWiz base. With TouchWiz base, you will be able to still use your Samsung camera, S-Pen Note apps, and some more. Basically, you don’t have to sacrifice all your Samsung features to get this ROM (unlike AOSP ROMs).
For those of you who don’t know, MIUI ROM is another flavor of custom Android created by a company called Xiaomi in China. You could actually buy a Xiaomi phone like Mi 3 if you wanted OR you could simply install MIUI ROM to experience first-hand what Xiaomi phone is all about.
Of course, MIUI ROM is a completely different animal from TouchWiz and AOSP so it can be very refreshing. Time to time, I do enjoy running MIUI ROM on some of my Android devices, particularly because MIUI ROM has the best theme engine on the planet “right now”. Even CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik has said he will make CM11 ROMs with new theme engine like MIUI ROMs.
