Scientific calculator

The general calculator is familiar to every Android user, but what many don't know is that the calculator on the Xiaomi smartphone adds more functions when we rotate the device horizontally, where functions such as sine, cosine, tangent, root calculus or the constant Pi become visible.

Note: The rotation lock must be deactivated on the device.

On devices that come with the App Mi Calculator, just tap the button in the lower left corner to enable or disable the additional features.

Enterprise mode

Some people have probably stumbled across Enterprise mode on their Xiaomi smartphone and can't assign this mode. This mode is intended for companies that specify access to websites and/or apps. It is also possible to theoretically monitor the Xiaomi device to find out what the smartphone is used for.

Only when a company code with the corresponding license code is entered, the entrepreneur mode can be activated.

Note: We are not so much providing an activation guide, but rather a brief explanation of what the Enterprise mode is.

We strongly advise against looking for any codes from the Internet to start the mode, some users reported that they could not deactivate Enterprise again and had to reset the device to factory defaults.
