    Check this out guys, have had my Mi4 for 4 days now and only charged it twice. This is the battery life and screen on time I'm getting at the moment. This is running MIUI v6 latest stable ROM.

    I think I could easily achieve 7 hours screen on time, if not more. What about you guys?

    oh my god I should try the stable version, I'm using official developer release and It did 3,50 hours of screen on at medium brightness and it was at 40% of battery :D
     
  5. Yeah you definitely should mate, I turned my Mi4 off at 5% earlier and it reached 7 hours 48 mins screen on time!! :D

    My brightness is usually at 35-40% as well.

    I'm not able to get such battery life. I guess I have too much apps installed on it (eg : facebook apps which are always searching for internet) I have 51% left after 2h40 minutes. So that's not good ^^

  7. Yeah you definitely should be able to get more than that.

    I never use the Facebook app, its way too crappy and unoptimised.

    Also turn off automatic brightness, I usually set mine to about 40%. Check which apps you got syncing as well.

  9. Yep it's amazing, better than I expected and by a huge margin. I'm astonished, especially since MIUI v6 isn't as optimised as it could be yet.

    Hi, are you using the China Rom V6? after choosing english as language, how much is still Chinese? thanks
     
  11. Yes using the current v6 rom.

    The only Chinese bits I've noticed are the themes and that's it. I have no issues with it at all, everything I use daily is in English. All Google apps work fine too.

    Thanks! Got into a little trouble with google play services force closing and root missing intially...finally after 3 hours got v5 working and then updated to v6 via ota...root is still a problem though...
     
  15. Ah okay, I didint have any issues with Google play services as I used the Google Installer from MiMarket.

    Stable version doesn't have root, you need to flash the dev edition.

  21. It should say if you go to about phone - software updater. I'm on stable and I don't think root is possible for me. Only on development rom.
