REDMI NOTE 12 Pro Review – Perfect cheap phone, but not for gaming As you know, in China, Redmi has split the Note series into two models in order to make the phone choice easier for users. The one with a T in its name is inclined for more strong performance. For example, the Note 11T Pro boasts the strongest SOC of any mid-range phone. Those without a T in their name focuses on having a well-balanced phone. For example, the Note 11 Pro is stronger than the 11T Pro in all areas, except performance. Today we have the Redmi Note 12 Pro, so don’t anticipate too much from its performance this time, but let’s look at what else is noteworthy. Follow For More Updates at Rapiddnews.com

The Note 12 Pro carries over the design from the prior iteration. The straight screen, straight back panel with a flat frame, feels and looks very much like the Note 11T Pro, since the lens module is effectively a larger version of the Note 11T Pro. We ordered the purple version since I wanted to show you the new colorway. This version features a light spot on the back panel, therefore there should be a lot of females who will like this hue:

But I still recommend white, it appears purer.The power fingerprint two-in-one button is still located on the side.The top contains a headphone jack, IR emitter, and NFC, but the SIM card slot does not permit TF card expansion. The 187g plus the less than 8mm body makes the Note 12 Pro feel not as hefty in your palm as you may imagine. I would give the Note 12 Pro a good rating for its design, which is nice enough for a gadget priced at $240.

This time the screen looks no different from the Note 11 Pro, but in fact there are still some tiny upgrades. 12 Pro’s screen features a flexible OLED screen, the most evident advantage is that the lower bezel is thinner. From the front, it already appears more gorgeous than many $400+ phones. There is no difficulty with the screen quality, which is still diamond-like pixels.The refresh rate is 120Hz and the resolution is 1080P. And it employs a 1920Hz PWM dimming at low brightness and support Dolby Vision, with peak brightness of 900 nits. Overall, the quality of this screen is great in the same price range.

Redmi Note 12 Pro Technical Specifications

As I indicated at the beginning, the Note 12 Pro’s performance is on the poorer side. It employs the Dimensity 1080, MediaTek’s latest mid-range chip. Both Antutu and 3DMark test, all kinds of scores are showing us that there is almost no different from the previous gen Dimensity 920. So what precisely is the degree of performance of this chip, when you come to see the performance of each game frame rate, you will know. Of course, for the cell phone PUBG is now not a significant problem. Just follow the regular test.Genshin Impact follows, with an average frame rate of under 40. Look at this frame rate curve; it looks like it would be a roller coaster.. If you lock the frame rate at 30fps, you should be able to run more stably. A Dimensity 8100 phone, like the Note 11T Pro, is a good choice if you want an inexpensive phone that can run Genshin smoothly.

Redmi Note 12 Pro – Camera Review

The camera is one of the key objectives of the REDMI NOTE 12 Pro update. While the Pro version doesn’t feature the current 200MP main camera, our old buddy the IMX 766 is not awful, after all it is also used in OPPO’s top phones. Let’s have a peek at the filters and Art frames that Redmi is focusing on. 7 new film filters have been added to the REDMI NOTE 12 series, all of which add noise to photographs while modifying the colour inclination. Although I’m not a fan of film photography, there are some scenes that would look wonderful utilising these filters. Especially with the new Art frame, folks who appreciate photography will love it.

Main Camera

Because the main camera has gained OIS this time, the sensor area has also increased larger, therefore the photographs in dark light are better than the previous one. Especially the 2x is not blurred at night owing to handshake anymore, despite the 5x, the photographs can be pretty acceptable. The night mode is also more intriguing this time, it doesn’t boost the dynamic range, but controls the highlights and makes the dark portions darker. This will make some night shots look more like they were captured at night, with less noise, which looks good. But some settings need brighter highlights and it decreases the exposure, such as a neon box, which doesn’t look as well as Auto mode. And often the colour temperature is chilly, so if you want to capture a good photo at night with the Note 12 Pro, you need a little expertise and skill.

Because the video steadiness will be a little better with the addition of OIS. But compared to other phones with EIS is still not reliable enough. The highest shooting specs are 4K 30fps for the primary camera and 1080P 30fps for the ultra-wide cah is unchanged from the Note 11 Pro.

Redmi Note 12 Pro – Charging & Battery

The charging power of the Pro version is still 67w and the battery is 5000mAh.I consider the 20g weight savings over the 11 Pro and the 160mAh battery reduction to be worthwhile. The huge battery combined the weak performance means that its battery life must be exceptionally long-lasting. For Tiktok and 1080P video, the phone uses 5% of its battery, 4% for PUBG, and 7% for Genshin. A little improvement over 11 Pro+.
