Upon Opening, You see a quite a lot of numbers here and there, Firstly you see a Device Name option. This is by default the your Phone Name, you can even change it.
Next up is the Model Number, which just shows the Model Number of your Phone. In my case, it is Redmi Note 3
Below Model Number, We have Android Version. The pretty popular option with a Hidden game. Tapping 5 times on Android Version leads to the Android Logo & long pressing results in opening of a Hidden game. What's your high score in this game?
Another Android Version, but this time it is Android Security Patch level. These patches help in fixing the security holes & vulnerability in the system.
MIUI is the Best - This time, it is the MIUI version next. It shows the MIUI version, Global or China along with the version number.
Whats Hidden here? Tap on MIUI version 7 times, and you see a pop up saying " You are a Developer now". It enables Developer options in Settings > Additional Settings.

Right next is - Baseband Version. Baseband is related with communications of the phone. It controls the cellular radio of the phone.
After Baseband We have Kernel Version. Kernel is a link between Hardware and software of the phone. It controls how software would work with Hardware.
Tapping on Kernel Version 6-7 times opens up a new portal, it is the CIT/QC test. In QC test, you have various options where you check the working of different sensors, ports, software versions, Sound, display etc.
Status - This shows the status of your Sim, Battery, IMEI information etc. It is a simpler version of Phone info
