Overall, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is an excellent phone, but you can always get even more from the Chinese manufacturer’s mid-ranger. No, we’re not talking about improving the specs, but getting the max out of the operating system. Out of the box, the phone comes with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop, customized with the manufacturer’s own interface, MIUI. If you’re not fancying the way it looks and works, you can try rooting the phone, a process which is actually very simple and brings a lot of new features!

Like mentioned above, the process isn’t complicated at all, but there’s always the risk of something going wrong, so if you don’t feel like doing this all by yourself, ask somebody with experience in rooting to assist you.
