Whelp, this is the biggest advantages and disadvantages of Xiaomi MIUI. The problem with them was that they modified the UI so deep that basically MIUI was almost entirely a new OS and Xiaomi had a hard time to catch up with the mainstream Android version. But in the same time, normal user wouldn't notice the difference as long as they updated to latest MIUI, even tho they had different Android version underneath, they still getting the same functionality and benefit. I guess they should learn from Samsung and Huawei on this, currently both of their latest UI "Samsung Experience" and "EMUI 5" are at least unified with same Android version on every devices.

Same can be said about Meizu and Flyme, they only doing closed beta's for Nougat now. The worst is that if you have an international model, you are likely to be at a disadvantage in software rollout, however you are likely to get better hardware than the Chinese version.

Totally agree. But I'd argue, as stock Android is slowly getting better, that MIUI is becoming less and less attractive to people just because of its heavy modifications and a long delay of Android version updates.

That because we are tech lover, which make us notice the difference, this hardly apply to the common users, they want something "That Just Work" for them, they wouldn't care about the Android version they are using.
