Low price margin has been a major attraction for the Chinese tech giant, Xiaomi. And it totally makes sense as a buyer to invest money in products which offer all the new innovations in a device that is actually affordable. But, how does the company itself profit from this?
Now, every MIUI runner must know where the company sources its most of the revenue from. To everyone’s surprise, last September, Xiaomi decided to push ads in its user interface and since then it has affected many. As Xiaomi promised to forever cap hardware profit margins at 5 per cent, the Beijing-based company has adapted to different means of making money, and one of them is through ads.
To remove ads from your phones MIUI, follow these simple and easy steps:
