In this list, we gather some of the most useful Xiaomi secret codes from MIUI operating system. Test phone components, format the system or learn useful device information.
It is a fact that MIUI is one of the most complete customization layers that we can currently find in the Android landscape. Good proof of this is the number of secret codes that we can enable in the system to activate certain functions of the mobile device, functions that are often hidden from users because of their nature or because they pose a danger to the stability of the device. On this occasion, we have collected some of the most interesting Xiaomi secret codes that we have been able to find for Xiaomi devices.
The activation of certain codes depends on the version of MIUI, the type of processor (Qualcomm or Mediatek) or the base version of Android, so some functions may not be available on certain models of Xiaomi and Poco. Also, entering the codes will have to be done in the native Calls app, while we cannot resort to third-party dialers.
##197328640###*: Enable Test Mode On Your Xiaomi Phone
Especially useful if we have detected a possible hardware failure in the device. This code allows us to enable a hidden test menu on Android devices intended for testing and diagnostics of the different components of the cell phone, such as the touch panel, the screen, the speaker, the proximity sensor or the microphone, among others. If the code in question does not work, we can resort to this other method to activate that menu.
Test The Hardware Of Your Xiaomi Cell Phone Component By Component
If what we want is to test the hardware of our cell phone component by component, we can resort to a list of codes intended for testing components individually. The list in question is as follows:

##232339##*: Check If The Wi-fi Connection Has Problems
Another code is used to assess the operation of the WiFi network.

Is the Power button of your Xiaomi cell phone not working properly? The code *#*#7594#*#*#* allows us to force the device to turn off through the native Android shutdown menu.

However, we must first make sure that we have the necessary storage to perform the backup, which we can calculate by analyzing the space occupied by the DCIM folder, among others.

At least of useful information. Depending on the system version, the code enables a menu with information related to the components and use of the device, such as battery voltage and amperage, minute-by-minute usage statistics, the history of open applications, the processor temperature or the power-on time since it was last turned off.

Enable And Disable Voice Dialing With These Codes
