Well, performance depends on usage; also the rom affects the battery performance. Ensure you have the global rom installed. Have not got reasons to use a power bank for now because I carry my charger wherever I go. Thank God quick charge is supported and the charger is very portable.

I will advise you to wait a bit for official release of miui 8. If you are not on global stable rom you might not get the OTA update on your phone. For now there are many bugs in the unofficial miui 8.

Wow, now that you are rooted, I can't guarantee if the normal process will be safe for you. Mine is rooted too but have not done any update since then. Am waiting for miui 8 global stable rom which should be out in a month's time. If you can't wait then you should visit the miui forum for help. The normal process is for you to tap on tools, then 'updater' then check for update. You can do the update and follow the next steps:
Connect your device to your Windows PC/laptop via a micro USB cable, and copy the ROM file you downloaded into the folder ‘downloaded_rom’(you can create the folder yourself if its not there already) in the internal storage of your device. Launch ‘Updater' app on your device, then click the ‘…’ icon at the top-right corner, select ‘Choose update package’, and choose the ROM file you’ve put in ‘downloaded_rom’.
After choosing the right ROM file, your device will begin upgrading. Your device should automatically boot to the new version when the update is completed.

bro kindly port to the Global Stable ROM of MiUI7 before MiUi8 arrives


What I'm saying is if you're on Developer ROM on MiUi7, you can't get an OTA update for coming MiUi8 Global Stable ROM.


What model is your phone


The screenshot below is what MiUi7 Global Stable ROM looks like

Can't really tell where it should be, plus your phone on a computer and search for it or on your phone go to security, then tap 'cleaner'. After cleaning tap on 'deep clean', then tap' big files '. Scroll until you see the downloaded rom. When you find it, tap on it and click file. From there you can move it to any folder you want.

Updating your phone after root does no harm but makes you lose root. Personally I don't see the need to root since I experimented with it shortly after getting my note 3
