Xiaomi is one of India’s leading smartphone makers and sellers. They are very famous for excellent technical specifications in their budget range smartphones.

Certain premium manufacturers charge massive amounts for their phones which have the same Mi / Redmi series phone specifications.

Xiaomi achieves this aim by getting revenue through its MIUI (Mi User Interface). They use MIUI to show their users Ad notifications and popups.
