    I'm new to android. That stated, I bought a Xiaomi MI 3 when I went to china last week, it's great, the only problem is that most apps (native apps) are in chinese. I want to know if there is a way for me to change the Android version of my device or if there is any way to adapt it to be completely english friendly.

    Thank you.

    Welcome to Android Central! Is the system language set to English, under Settings>Language & input>Language? If so, you may not be able to do much about the preinstalled apps, since the language selection of those apps may be baked into their code.

    Thank you for your reply. I've done that already , but my problem is that apps, mainly the market, are still in chinese or offer the chinese apps. Is there any english market at least?

    Thank you once again.

    Try downloading the Google Play Store apk and installing it. http://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=23252070760973351
