This post is inspired from the mess I have made in my java project around compile time and run time dependencies. There are lots of questions you will ask when you try to resolve all the dependencies for your project using tools like Maven or Gradle.

Xiaomi, The Chinese mobile maker has impressed this year with their smartphone Redmi Note 3 which offers an incredible price-performance ratio. The phone performs quite well on day-to-day tasks and wont disappoint even if you are a casual gamer. Few months back, Xiaomi pushed their latest version of MIUI 8 followed by Marshmallow update which has hit recently for many redmi note 3users.

The rise of technology in our modern times has influenced the younger generation and their way of learning by leaps and bounds.

Recently I bought one Xiaomi device – Redmi Note 3 from amazon and have been using this device for 1 month. I personally like MiUI due to:
1. Its immense power to customize the phone according to your way of use
2. Faster response
3. Inbuilt Theme App, Wallpapers – So easy to change the styles.
4. You can change the display settings to a level where you can actually change colours and saturation and adjust it manually.
Though this UI is pretty heavily customized and easy to use – I find lack of an app drawer which Xiaomi can consider adding in future releases. And also as an ex-HTC user I used to easily read the whatsapp notifications without opening the application so that the person in the other end does not even know whether you read the message or not. This way you can actually reply to a message if it requires, or ignore it without hurting the other person 🙂
