Xiaomi’s Octa-core masterpiece which has great potential & quality that it can run the most latest Android OS without any issues. But because of Xiaomi’s poor device update service, I doubt it will receive Android Marshmallow update. Anyways, its time to use CM 13 ROM in Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. If you don’t know about Cyanogenmod, CM is a open source Android OS that is built from Android base with many customization options & themes which are not found in Stock Android. As far as I have used many different ROMs, I find Resurrection Remix the best Android OS which uses CM sources i.e More customizations. Resurrection Remix (RR) CM 13 based ROM for Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
