Hello MIUI lovers,
Android's appeal lies in the option to customize it as much or little as you desire. The rabbit hole is deep, yet you don’t have to plunge into the scary world of rooting and ROMing to change how Android looks and works. Today Mi Bunny Tips is here to help you customize your phone to make it different and sexy!
Each tip remains within reach of the greenest Android newbie. As you learn these advanced tweaks, you’ll see even more opportunities for further customization. The road to Android fandom is paved with small changes that gradually transform your device. So come on—take the first step!
1) Replace home screen with a launcher:
You don't have to use the home screen and app manager that's built into your phone. Without rooting, you can easily download and install a third-party Android launcher that cleans up your interface, and lets you customize your home screens beyond app shortcuts. Added features include resizing icons, setting up personalized gesture controls, and changing the color scheme. Here's what MIUI 8 looks like:
2) Install a better keyboard:
Another way to make your phone look cool is to have a great keyboard. There are so many third-party keyboards available via Google Play, including the top-rated Swype and Swiftkey, as well as any number of GIF keyboards and other specialty apps. And while you're at it, whether you keep the stock keyboard or install a new one, be sure to customize the autocorrect settings to match up with your personal lingo to avoid awkward interactions and general frustration.
3) Have a cool wallpaper:
Spice up your screen with your favorite photos, or download a wallpaper app, and find something that fits your preferences. In Xiaomi you can just go to themes and select from a variety of wallpapers available in Themes store. Select what suits you best and apply. Also keep changing wallpaper time to time to make it look different. You can also check top weekly wallpapers collection here: Top weekly wallpaper collection.

5) Download and install new icons:
Android is the only smartphone OS that will let you change every icon to the face of a character from Star Wars, or anything else you’d prefer.
Switching icons is a breeze. Most launchers have built-in support for themes and icons. You might also try Icon changer free, an app that simplifies the process of changing home-screen icons without the need for a launcher. It’s a good choice for users who like their device’s default look but still want new icons.
6) Change settings with a swipe and a tap:
The latest stock version of Android includes a quick-settings menu that you activate by swiping the notifications bar down with two fingers. Many users have an old or manufacturer-customized version of Android, however. If that’s the case for you, check out an app like Notification toggle, which works with any phone running Android 2.1 or newer. With this app you’ll be able to create your own custom quick-settings area that appears whenever you swipe down to view notifications.
7) Root your device:
Of course, rooting your Android smartphone opens up a host of options. When you root, you can access the latest Android features first, and update your OS whenever your want. Rooting gives the options to change or remove default apps and many other functions in Android. You can tweak your device with the help of tips from MIUI device team. Rooting can be intimidating, but if you follow the instructions carefully, the good definitely outweighs any drawbacks.
