The EU XIAOMI forum releases a new version every Friday, it removes a lot of the unnecessary Chinese stuff, incorporates better multi-language support, etc, etc.https://xiaomi.eu/co...hreads/6-9-22.34371/
You can see there that while the Redmi Note 3 is based on Android 5, the Redmi Note 3 PRO is Android 6. And it's reasonably simple to flash them once TWRP is installed and getting that on is pretty easy too.
It's safer to refer to the board name that way you know exactly what model you're talking about, eg. hennesy
= Redmi Note 3, kenzo
= Redmi Note 3 PRO, kate
= Redmi Note 3 Special Edition, etc
For me, MIUI just plain sucks - it's why I flashed my RN2 with something else. Plus the amount of screwing around to remove all the tracking, so being able to remove MIUI comes pretty close to item number 1 on the list w.r.t. a XIAOMI phone, (ie. hardware is good, the OS sucks

- Geared towards finding the best deal @kalos:
You need to determine the specs you want, not someone else. eg. Processor, RAM, colour, 4G bands, etc, etc and then YOU
go search the internet until you have what you consider enough information to make an informed decision.
eg. The Redmi Note 3 Special Edition has 4G Band 28 (700MHz) because it's made for Taiwan but B28 is also used in Australia. This extra coverage makes this version more expensive but it would be worth it for me, doesn't mean it's worth it to you.
