I am currently using the MIUI ROM for Nexus S, which I really like a lot, it’s a completely different ROM than any other ROM you will try.
For benchmark, I overclocked my Nexus S to 1.4Ghz using the netarchy kernel and got about 19.3 MFLOPS. Not the fastest but not bad either.
For Quandrant, I got 1863.
What I like about MIUI isn’t its raw speed but highly customized menu buttons, themes, and details such as this 3D screen switcher.
Above shows default MIUI theme, which is pretty clean and plain.
Hitting the Menu Button shows the above menus.
You can put up to 9 different home screens.
The MIUI comes with a TON of themes you can get for free. The only problem is that the descriptions are all in Chinese, which I can’t read but you can still try the themes and find which one is for you.
The latest MIUI comes loaded with the latest Android 2.3.4 and updated often so you don’t have to be stuck ever.
Here’s some more apps. There’s still a lot of Chinese in some of the icons, but it doesn’t bother me as most are in English.
The MIUI comes with even an easy-to-configure Firewall. Wait, did I hear firewall on a phone? I guess it’s a good thing to have, you can easily block out apps completely from using your data network.
Also, if you are not on limited data plan, MIUI ROM shows you how much traffic you’ve been using.
Overall, I am very impressed with the MIUI ROM and this is one of the best ROMs for the Nexus S in my opinion, especially for those of you who want lots of choices when it comes to customizing your phone’s UI.
