    I think that the accelerometer on my Redmi 3 is a bit miscalibrated towards left side.

    Because of this, when I play games that are motion sensor based & uses accelerometer, for e.g: Asphalt 8, the car will always move towards left even when the device is being perfectly held horizontal.

    Is there a way to calibrate the sensor? I searched for the solution but none of the codes that should get me to sensor calibration works on MIUI 7.

    I can't find the option to calibrate accelerometer in the compass app. I see it's miscalibrated but there's no Settings or some other menu.
    Btw, I have tried various apps from the Play Store that should calibrate the accelerometer but with no success :(

    OK, I got the answer on miui forum. If someone else has this problem:
    1) boot to recovery (power + volume-up)
    2) open sensor testing
    3) open accelerometer testing
    4) put the phone on a flat surface and click "Calibrate"
    5) once the calibration is complete, complete other tests (x-, x+, y-, y+, 45+ degrees and 45- degrees). After that, the calibration should be saved.

    It's really hard and I don't know how to explain the position in which the phone must be to complete the test.
    If it can help you, for the 45+ test the values have to be X 5,5; Y 5,5; Z 5,5. For the 45- test the values the values have to be X -5,5; Y -5,5; Z -5,5. I hope it will help you.

    The problem with the cardboard videos is normal since the Redmi 3 doesn't have a real gyro. It just emulate a gyro using the accelerometer and compass. See yourself by clicking 5 times on "Kernel version" to enter the CIT mode. Then go to single tests. No gyro there.

    If I do this, y can see the gyro button and values. Are you sure that Redmi 3 has no gyro?

    If I remember good, it's the right botton on the bottom, the line before the last

    No gyro, it's emulated by accelerometer
