The new Xiaomi 12 series differs from the previous year’s. This year’s Xiaomi 12 has become a tiny screen flagship, whereas its Xiaomi 12 Pro has become more like an updated version of Mi 11. The design also features changed. However, Lei Jun stated that we would like to compete completely against the iPhone. However, with the Xiaomi Civi’s design, it is like it, the Xiaomi 12 Pro will it be able to cause consumers to spend more than 700 dollars to purchase it?
We purchased our Xiaomi 12 Pro in green vegan leather. To admit it, the phone appears quite ordinary from the first look. This isn’t the first time the back cover made of vegan leather is used for Xiaomi’s flagship smartphone.
Xiaomi 12 Pro Review: Design
It does not appear any different than Mi 11. Mi 11. The Xiaomi logo has become simpler. The rectangular lens module looks identical to Xiaomi Civi. It has a similar design to Xiaomi Civi, featuring a large circular shape and numerous small circles. However, the inclusion of a few lines along the design gives the lens module an organized appearance.
The new colors seem more appealing, However, the overall look does not have the same charm as Mi 11. Mi 11. It’s not to say it’s ugly, but this Xiaomi 12 Pro is ugly It’s pretty beautiful. It’s just lacking the kind of recognition that allows you to recognize that it’s the latest flagship from Xiaomi. Xiaomi 12 Pro Xiaomi 12 Pro has an enhanced frame design. Due to its more round frame and back curvature, and its smaller size, it is comfortable to hold. NFC, IR blaster and linear motor X-axis aren’t left out. Feeling good, looking comfortable in your hands and packed with features, I believe that this Xiaomi 12 Pro has done very well in terms of design.
Xiaomi 12 Pro Review: Display
We’ve all heard the Mi 11 comes with an excellent screen. The display that comes with Xiaomi 12 Pro is upgraded to top that. The screen is not just kept at the resolution of 1440 x 480 pixels and the 120Hz refresh rate, but it also utilizes Samsung’s E5 material. Additionally, Micro-Lens technology enables the Xiaomi 12 Pro to be more energy-efficient. In terms of effectiveness, Mi 12 Pro has an additional advantage: the 2nd Generation LTPO technology.
We know all are aware that due to ProMotion technology the 3,300mAh iPhone 13 Pro has achieved incredible battery longevity. This LTPO’s second-generation is very similar to ProMotion which lets the screen of the Xiaomi 12 Pro’s refresh rate to change between 120 and 1 Hz. In other words, if I swipe the screen I will see that it could change to a different speed of refresh based on my speed of the swipe. In many applications that aren’t Xiaomi however, even though you aren’t able to alter the speed of the refresh when you swipe speed, it is possible to switch back to 10Hz once you end your swipe. When watching videos, you can change the refresh rate to either 30 or 60 Hz, depending on the video. Likewise, while reading ebooks, you could theoretically reduce the speed to just 1Hz.
In reality, it appears that Xiaomi is not properly optimized for the purpose and repeatedly tested tests have not been able to reach 1Hz. I recommend you check the settings and change the auto-refresh rate to the custom 120Hz. Because certain APP systems can lock in either 60 or 90 Hz like Twitter and Facebook, you can enable the custom 120Hz setting to obtain the highest refresh rate. However, the screen drops to 10Hz after it has stopped.
You might be wondering why the original generation LTPO such as the OPPO Find X3 was not as efficient as this? The reason is that it was the initial generation that, regardless of the task is limited to 60Hz and 120Hz on two gears. The second generation, however, has six gears.
Furthermore, as the phone is equipped with fingerprint identification that is ultra-thin device and fingerprint recognition, the fingerprint recognition region is in an appropriate place. The screen glass is composed of corning Gorilla Victus. While 2022 has just begun I can assure you that this screen will be among the most durable screens of the year.
Xiaomi 12 Pro Review: Performance & Gaming
We’re all aware of what it is that the Snapdragon 8Gen 1 model is doing this year. What is the chance that Xiaomi can stop this fire beast? I have to say that the latest time Xiaomi has introduced a Speed mode as an option in the Developer options. If you wish to enjoy the game with the highest quality of performance at maximum power, you have to enable this option. Turn on the Performance mode and switch to the game mode and turn on High Quality.
Antutu The scores of the bench are near 1 million 3DMARK 9840. Geekbench five single-core 1154 multi-core 3535.
As we’d like to test our understanding of the 3DMARK Stress Test, even when both Speed mode and Performance mode were disabled The Xiaomi 12 Pro was unable to finish the test in an indoor setting with a temperature of 21 ° Celsius. Its body temperature at that time was at 52 ° Celsius. This indicates that Xiaomi is unable to block the heat generated by this chip. Moreover, the temperature control is very stringent.
In the case of gaming tests (check out our review of the video to see an in-depth gaming test) It is said that the PUBG HDR Graphics Extreme framerate is maintained at 60 frames per second. There isn’t any reduction in frequency and the phone does not get extremely hot. However, the Brightridge case is much more intriguing.
The power output was set at 50fps after one minute, and it was then set at 40fps after four minutes. Xiaomi 12 Pro didn’t hold well in the second portion of the testing, moving between 25 and 40fps. In comparison against Edge X30 Edge X30, which has less heat dissipation capability as well as lower performance, the performance output of the Xiaomi 12 Pro is lower. However, the temperature isn’t as high as it is with the Edge X30.
The power average is 7.6w This is less than both Edge x30 and the Mi 11. Xiaomi’s strategy for scheduling Genshin Impact is completely different than Motorola’s. Motorola typically uses the highest speed and waits until it gets too hot before decreasing the frequency. 12 Pro will keep the temperature between 45 and 45 degrees Celsius so that you will remain at the highest frame rate for a longer period.
I like Xiaomi’s gaming strategy more. It’s at least going to make my hands feel more comfortable. Overall I’m happy with its gaming capabilities to be acceptable particularly since it’s an enormous improvement over the previous Mi 11.
Xiaomi 12 Pro Review: Cameras
Xiaomi 12 Pro Xiaomi 12 Pro no longer makes use of Samsung’s sensor for its primary camera but switches back to Sony’s most recent 50MP IMX707 sensor.
The 12 Pro is a change from the previous style of tuning The hues are more vibrant while the contrast has been made greater than it was before. Like many other manufacturers, its algorithm for sharpening has been improved. It’s true, Xiaomi has finally learned to please users with regards to colors. The photos are no longer too shabby. Even at night, the performance is comparable to the Mi 11 Ultra most of the time. The major improvement is in color reproduction. If the lighting is dim, Mi 11 Ultra photos will be green, whereas Xiaomi 12 Pro will not. Additionally, The Night View mode algorithm has been vastly enhanced. The wait time for night mode is drastically reduced, and the advantage is that photos won’t become blurred. If you look at the Mi 11 Ultra photo, you’ll notice that five minutes of night modeled to the image becoming blurred. When you switch the camera back into automatic mode can cause the night view algorithm to be activated. This Xiaomi 12 Pro has a wait time of two seconds even when night mode has been turned activated which means that the pictures are crystal clear. Of course, since its exposure times are much shorter, however, it’s not as clear as Xiaomi 11 Ultra. Mi 11 Ultra.
The Xiaomi 12 Pro’s Ultra-wide and 2x Telephoto camera sensors are both JN1 50MP. While the ultra-wide field of view isn’t as large as that of the Mi 11 Ultra, the dynamic range is higher and the purple-fringing problem and image quality on edges are improved on the hardware side. The ultra-wide-angle camera performs exactly like the primary camera the majority often. Auto mode is roughly the same way as Mi 11 Ultra at night. The main difference lies in the algorithm used by Night mode. You can see how the night mode of Xiaomi 12 Pro slightly brighter than the auto mode, whereas it’s the Mi 11 Ultra doesn’t seem to be affected by any changes.
2. The telephoto zoom may not be as stunning as I thought it could be. Even if Mi 11 Ultra uses the primary camera to crop images, the quality of the picture is superior to the optical telephoto 2x lens in Xiaomi 12 Pro. Xiaomi 12 Pro. Control of noise and highlights aren’t as effective as the Mi 11 Ultra. However, the dynamic range is more impressive if HDR is successfully activated. In the evening both phones performed well. Xiao 12 Pro performed well in auto mode. The other phones performed the same. When night mode is enabled the phones perform very poorly. It’s the case that the Mi 11 Ultra has a poor algorithm, and Xiaomi 12 Pro is a bit blurrier. Xiaomi 12 Pro is easily blurred because of the absence of OIS.
Xiaomi 12 Pro has done an amazing job of enhancing the user experience on camera. It is, for instance, the latest Focus tracking feature will automatically capture the lens if anyone or cat or dog appears in the front of the camera. This is great news for those with children or pets. It also optimizes the length in the delay of the shutter. It is possible to see the shutter speed of Mi 11 Ultra. Mi 11 Ultra, which isn’t in the same class now. It also has an animation when switching lenses now, instead of going directly towards the camera. The stability has been enhanced as shown in this image. Also, the Mi 11 Ultra took three photographs that were exposed too much, and those of the Xiaomi 12 Pro encountered no problems like that.
Overall it appears that the Xiaomi 12 Pro has surpassed the Mi 11 Ultra in many aspects. Considering the superior photos and the cost difference this Xiaomi 12 Pro’s camera system is already in a tie to that of the Mi 11 Ultra for the first spot.
The video’s performance is similar to that of the photos with higher contrast. Three lenses are capable of recording 4K 60fps video. It is also possible to change between the three lenses when you record 30fps 4k video. There is a difference in the brightness of this model. Xiaomi 12 Pro is not the same as its predecessor, the Mi 11 Ultra, and the green hue is too bright and not as natural as Mi 11 Ultra. Mi 11 Ultra. Overall its video record quality is excellent however there isn’t any difference in it from Mi 11 Ultra. Mi 11 Ultra.
You might not believe it at first however, the Xiaomi 12 Pro indeed comes with four-speaker units. Two low-frequency units, as well as two high-frequency units, guarantee that instruments and vocals are properly separated. The speakers, however, are in an awkward position. One is on top and the other is at the bottom, meaning that regardless of the way you hold your phone, it will always be able to block one. In addition, the audio quality is among the top I’ve heard.
Xiaomi 12 Pro Review: Charging
This time Xiaomi released their Surge P1 chip and the first time it was integrated into the Xiaomi 12 Pro. It’s a charging chip that lets the phone charge at 120W with one cell. Before this, 120W charging would only be used in dual cell phones, and the capacity of batteries in phones that have 120W charging was not enough to surpass 4500mAh. With 4600mAh, the Xiaomi 12 Pro proves that Xiaomi is ahead of the pack in the field of charging. Wireless charging is limited to 50W, but for some reason. you can check out the MIX 4 Review for more information. Of course, Xiaomi knows that 120W chargers can be expensive, which is why they’re included inside the package.
The actual speed of charging is displayed in the graph of lines. Xiaomi 12 Pro Review. Five minutes up to 37 percent, and 19 minutes to fully charge. While it is slightly more slowly than the dual-cell MIX4 It is also extremely efficient. When testing the battery life it took about half an hour to play streaming video at 1080p and Tiktok consumed between 6 percent or 5% power. The power usage of all three games appears to be extremely high. Xiaomi 12 Pro Full Review, One thing I’d like to mention is the fact that these three games run in Speed and Performance mode. It’s also a screen that is 1440p, 120Hz is fantastic however, it is also extremely energy-intensive. Furthermore, you think LTPO isn’t a great power saver however, this is an experiment in one scene while the speed of the screen is set. Therefore, the power-saving effect of LTPO cannot be seen during our tests. The real use is capable of saving more power than what was used last year. Mi 11.
Then, let’s talk about MIUI 13. In reality, it isn’t that in any way when compared to MIUI 12.5. Since it’s mainly built on MIUI 12.5 to perform stability optimization. It is more stable and less sluggish. Animations of all kinds don’t lose frames anymore. A few widgets are now available on the desktop too to ensure that the desktop does not get boring. The new feature allows users to stream content to multiple Xiaomi devices. However, it hasn’t been upgraded to date. The new version doesn’t provide much therefore you could consider it to be MIUI 12.8 to be used.
The new Xiaomi 12 Pro has become more stable. However, some areas have taken an advancé in terms of a smaller 400mAh battery as compared to Mi 11 Pro, a smaller sensor size for the main camera and lower energy to charge wirelessly. However, the experience has been improved. In the last time, Xiaomi has realized that simply having specifications do not necessarily translate to a great experience on the phone. Only a good optimization can ensure that consumers are satisfied. The Xiaomi phone people want, one that is elegant, attractive and easy to operate Xiaomi the flagship smartphone.
That’s the end of this review. We’ll soon release an image comparison video of Xiaomi 12 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro. Stay tuned for that.
