Re: [ROM] MIUI [7.15.11 Beta 7]
Features of MIUI:
MIUI includes a very robust theme manager. You can change overall themes, or mix and match different styles like the dialer, lockscreen, messaging etc. Themes are available all over, even in ROM. If you look above, you're able to select "online themes" and browse the MIUI database. Keep in mind, some themes that theme text, like lockscreen themes found through the app, might still have some chinese. If you ever have a request for a translation, post it here.
When applying themes, you are able to select what exactly you want the theme to change, also pictured above. You can uncheck and check certain components to apply, a great way to keep things you might not want changed.
Traffic monitor / firewall
MIUI comes with a built in traffic monitor and firewall to help address specific data / voice thresholds. You are able to set maximums, control what has access to the internet, and setup warnings to notify you when you're approaching your maximum for a certain amount of time. A great feature for those with anything other than unlimited plans.
MIUI has two options for quick notification toggles. These toggles allow quick changing of system preferences, such as enabling / disabling wifi, sound, data, flashlight, airplane mode, reboot, shutdown, gps, etc. You are able to use the page toggles, which can be accessed by swiping on the notification pulldown to the right, or pressing the tab that says toggles at the bottom. You also are able to use custom toggles, which you choose what they are and the order they are in. These toggles are displayed on the actual pulldown, with no extra pages, and swipe from left to right to show more.
MIUI camera enhancements
The camera of MIUI has been enhanced in many ways. The camera shoots 8mp, but DOES NOT support 720p recording. Camcorder and front facing cam are supported. The camera has picture filters one can enable to change the output of snapped photos. The camera supports auto focus, anti-shake, snap delay, white balance, metering, contrast saturation and sharpness as well as a few other settings.

Re: [ROM] MIUI [7.1.11 Beta 7]MIUI tips & tricksHere is a place for some common tips for the average MIUI user. Not everyone is aware of these features, so I feel they are important to share.
- Screenshot- MIUI takes native screenshots. Holding menu down and clicking volume down will snap a screenshot of the current screen and store it on your sd card in MIUI/screen_caps
- Backup- MIUI's native backup application is a great tool. It backs up applications, messages, contacts, screen settings, system settings, everything but the ROM itself. This makes updating a breeze. Make sure to use this tool, as its a wonderful app.
