I didn't try myself the China ROM but I read it is more performing than the Xiaomi EU as well as Global and EEA stock ROMs

When I got my Mi 11 Ultra I started the process to unlock it right away since it uses the Chinese rom. However, by the time it was ready to be unlocked I decided it wasn't worth the hassle. The Chinese rom with the Google playstore installed does everything I need it to do. I don't really see any reason to change to the global or eu rom so far.

Latest global 12.5.4.0

The Global Indian (IN) ROM is smaller in size as compared to the Global (IM) ROM and they are pretty much identical.

The IN ROM though has the Red Dot notification light displayed in the Rear Display when there is any notification.

T̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶o̶p̶t̶i̶o̶n̶ ̶i̶s̶ ̶n̶o̶t̶ ̶a̶v̶a̶i̶l̶a̶b̶l̶e̶ ̶i̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶G̶l̶o̶b̶a̶l̶ ̶I̶M̶ ̶R̶O̶M̶

Edit:
So this option is available in the Global MI Rom but you may also have to enable another setting which might not be 'enabled' by default.

Notification Access > Rear Display > Allow Notification Access

A regular notification option is available but it is pretty limited. I think it is for Spotify integration (music control) and Answering the Phone.

I̶ ̶w̶o̶u̶l̶d̶ ̶l̶o̶v̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶g̶o̶ ̶b̶a̶c̶k̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶I̶N̶ ̶R̶o̶m̶ ̶i̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶r̶e̶ ̶w̶a̶s̶ ̶a̶ ̶c̶h̶a̶n̶c̶e̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶r̶o̶o̶t̶ ̶i̶t̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶l̶a̶t̶e̶s̶t̶ ̶v̶1̶2̶.̶5̶.̶4̶.̶0̶

Quite content with the Global MI ROM 😊

Chinese rom is the best one. 120Hz everywhere.
Latest patches latest updates but no Ok google and no android auto. (At least in old versions of software)

I didn’t like global rom because many apps including YouTube is not working at 120hz.

1. MiUi dialler & Contacts - Didn't like it. Prefer Google

2. MiUi power down screen - Didn't like it. Still prefer Global ROM screen.

3. Google Assistant didn't work from lockscreen. It has to be running in the background for it to work from lockscreen (fingerprint protected)

The CN ROM does have some extra neat animations (like Battery Charging animations) which I would look to have. But I can do without it.

In Global MI ROM, Google Assistant is a system app I guess. So it's in the background by default? It works well from lockscreen.

Red dot notification in rear display works on Global MI ROM but doesn't work on the CN ROM. The Xiaomi.eu's (CN) ROM.

I would love to test video. I don't quite know how to check the Hz. Honestly I haven't tested my phone yet.

How do you check how many Hz when watching YouTube?

By IN ROM you mean Indian? Because the standard Global is easily rootable

IN as in Indian yes

IN ROM latest fastboot ROM is v12.0.2.0 and then OTA update to v12.5.2.0.

I didn't know if I would lose root so I thought Global MI ROM is better. Lot more fastboot ROM releases and perhaps some added features looking at the version number and size of the MI fastboot Rom.

    Xiaomi EU is overstimated, it may be good for west people who wants a debloated and translated china rom with Google services,but Global Rom is much better and also is faster

    Hi, I have a 11 ultra Chinese version, after waiting 7 days to unlock and all of bugging twrp installation, I finished to put stable xiaomi.eu Rom on it. But somehow I find that eu rom now have a lot of small bugs.
    Don't know that should keep it or go to global rom?
