It’s no secret that phones in China cost less than they do outside of China, which makes it tempting to import one. Here’s one more reason not to: Xiaomi has blocked the installation of its Global ROMs on its China-bound phones.
MIUI in China replaces Google services (which are banned in the country) and has other tweaks. Gray import phones (bought in China on the cheap, but used elsewhere) usually have a way to enable the Play Services, but they still feature a bunch of Chinese apps and services that you won’t use so it’s basically full of bloatware. The Global ROMs were specifically tailored for markets outside China so they only have the stuff you would need and no traces of Chinese writing anywhere.
