What really pleased me is that now unread Gmail messages are displayed with all additional information including message subject. This feature was missing in ROM version and I’m very happy that it’s back it the As for battery life I didn’t yet noticed is it better than it was on the previous version. There was many complaints about battery life on, so share your thoughts in the comment below. What do you think, did the new version bring any improvements?

The MIUI ROM also includes few new applications. These are “Mi Video” and “Mi Mover” applications. The “Mi Video”, as one can understand from the title, is an video viewing application and “Mi Mover” is a very convenient backup tool.
