Hey MIUI-ers,
You all might have been using MIUI and might have tweaked/changed some of the Settings in it, in case, what you missed is the last part (Not the least), The "About Phone" Section. Its Time to Explore the depths of MIUI.

Accessing this Section

To open this, Tap on the Settings Icon on Homescreen, Scroll to the last and you have the About Phone section, Tap on it. Now be ready to see the Hidden Menu's get Unfold.

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.

Next we have is CPU. CPU shows the number of cores in the Processor along with its highest Frequency.
Tapping on CPU version​ multiple times, creates a Bug report. This can be used to give feedback or check the logs. It is stored in Internal Storage/MIUI/Debug.

RAM - This one is also related to Hardware where it shows the total RAM of the phone.

Below RAM we have - Internal memory. This option shows us the total size of the Internal Memory & the available.
Tap on Internal Memory 5 times and it opens up a whole new Settings. It is the Phone Info section, where you can change the Network Modes, Get Battery Information & temperature, Usage statistics etc.
Tip : If the Network Type in Phone info shows LTE, means it has VoLTE capability.

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

Next up is Contributors. This section shows the names of the people who have contributed in translation of MIUI in different languages and have an active role in Helping in Translations. Do you recognize some of the FC Presidents?

Last one is Legal Information. This option shows about all the google policies, copyrights and Terms & conditions. It also has Privacy Policy & Open source licenses​, which holds Information about all the files in system.

Thanks to Gagandeep, Lavnidhi, Karthik and all my DT mates.
