There are so many functions of the MIUI, we are not here to list them all. Foolish or not whether you are, there are features that always remain useful. Here we will see a hidden feature that will allow us to see the charging cycles of the battery of our Xiaomi smartphone. Let's say hidden feature since you don't need a particular type of application to control it, but it will be necessary enter a certain code in the dialer (“Telephone” application) and you're done. Be careful not to call though!
How to check the charging cycles of the battery of a Xiaomi smartphone
Before I tell you how, though, there are two things you need to know. You will have already understood from the title: necessary conditions are to have updated your device ad Android 10 and MIUI 11. If your device has not yet received these two update packages, you will not be able to view the battery recharge cycles in this way.
The procedure is very simple:
- first you will have to open the "Telephone" application of your device updated to Android 10 and MIUI 11;
- once opened, all you have to do is type these characters and numbers in sequence: * # * # * # * # 6485;
- without having to press the green button to call, a window will immediately appear saying "Battery and Charger Info";
- as you can see in the image, the number next to the wording "MF_02”Shows you the total of the charging cycles of the battery of your Xiaomi device.
What is this information useful for? First of all if you want to buy a used Xiaomi device, you can immediately check in what state the battery is and decide if it is worth it or not. Remember in fact that arrived at a total of 400/500 cycles the battery begins to suffer, regardless of whether you use more or less valid scamotages like charge the battery between 20% and 80% of the remaining charge.
