Xiaomi is one of our favorite brands. Not only because it produces spectacular terminals with an unbeatable quality-price ratio, but also because MIUI, the level of customization of its terminals, is the best for many users.

While MIUI resembles little or nothing to the minimalism of pure Android terminals like Google's Pixels, this is one of its attractions. MIUI adds a multitude of options to Android offering the user numerous configuration settings that allow us to get the most out of our Chinese terminals.



What if we told you that you can have a level of customization like MIUI on any Android terminal regardless of the brand? Well, it can and also in a very simple way. Remember, this is Android and there are no limits to customization here.

Install the Xiaomi launcher on any Android smartphone

Download the completely free Xiaomi launcher.

We have always said that one of the strengths of Android over the competition is its infinite customization possibilities. If you want you can completely transform your Android terminal to the point of not having two identical smartphones.

Also, to customize an Android terminal you don't need a lot of knowledge as the times of ROM, root and other stories are behind us. Simply by installing something as simple as a launcher from the Google app store, we will launch a new smartphone.

And if you want your mobile device to look like a Xiaomi, why not install its official launcher completely free of charge? It is called Mint Launcher, is from Xiaomi and has more than 10 million downloads in the Google Play Store. Nothing wrong.


Mint Launcher masks our terminal from Xiaomi MIUI and although it does not have all the possibilities that MIUI 12 offers to the owners of terminals of the Chinese brand, the truth is that its customization options and settings are not bad for a completely free application.



Mint Launcher allows all of the following and more:

  • Install third-party icon apps
  • Resize icons
  • Personalize your home screen
  • Choose from a variety of screen transition effects

In addition to this, it also allows navigation through gestures, has an application search engine as well as other simple and very useful functions, like being able to uninstall apps in batches and not one by one. As if that weren't enough, it also allows you to hide application icons to safeguard our privacy.


Mint Launcher is a fairly light tool since it weighs just 8,3 megabytes and is compatible with terminals that have Android 5.0 and later, or that's the same, can be installed on old smartphones and by the way give them a second life.
