Google’s Pixel lineup of devices offers one of the best software experiences. There is minimal bloatware and the material design used throughout the UI is easy on the eyes. On the other hand, OEMs like Xiaomi have skins that are heavily inspired by Apple’s iOS UI.
Moreover, MIUI is now jam-packed with ads as well as bloatware that some users may not appreciate. Thankfully, in the Android world, there are often workarounds for such problems. The best out of those is to install a custom ROM.
Custom ROMs can give users a tremendous amount of customization options. Moreover, it also allows users to easily get rid of apps and services that they do not require. Speaking of which, the Pixel Experience ROM is one of the most popular custom ROMs at present.
Previously, we had reported that the Pixel Experience ROM is now available on devices such as the Mi A2, Mi Mix 3, Redmi Note 8 and more. Well, the list of supported devices now seems to be growing. This is because the custom ROM is now available for the Xiaomi Redmi 5A, Mi 5, 5s, 5s Plus, Mi 6X, Mi Mix, Mix 2s, Mi 9, Mi 8, and Mi A3.
Of course, you will need to have a device with an unlocked bootloader before you try to install the Pixel Experience ROM. Moreover, you must create a backup of the files on the device to avoid any loss of data. Below, you will find the download links for the Android 10-based Pixel Experience ROM.
