Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro 5G Review: 120w Fast Charging, Specs, Price in India

10 Mins read
  • Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro still follows the tradition of stacking content, and is full of core, screen, images, accessories and other areas. To be fair, during the experience of the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro, the author hardly felt any unpleasant problems.
  • In addition, the first rising P1 chip also impressed the author, this Xiaomi self-developed IC management chip has reached the level of the first line. Not only is the creatively designed 120W single cell advanced solution, the heat control is great too. Just as the so-called road must be taken step by step, food must be eaten at once, if you can continue to overcome difficulties and maintain self-research on this small chip, I believe . That the flagship surging SoC that actually belongs to Xiaomi is also expected to happen in the future.

The Pro version of the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro, assures a promising user experience in the long run. Its high-end features, such as 8GB RAM, quad cameras at the back and 4600mAh quick charging enabled battery are quite an impressive deal. Apart from this, users also get a Gorilla Glass protected front screen that promises seamless visuals.

One of the major reserve events at the end of each year is the release of the flagship machine of the Xiaomi digital series. Because Xiaomi can always get Qualcomm’s flagship chips in the first batch and make a mobile phone with a balanced and comprehensive experience. The Xiaomi Digital Series flagship machine will often become a benchmark for consumers to buy new flagship mobile phones.

The same is true of Xiaomi’s update rhythm this year. Xiaomi collated and fixed some of the problems that existed before, and introduced a number of pioneering features to create a very comprehensive and balanced bucket flagship machine like the Xiaomi 12 Pro. The Udemix Team has already received the “Wild Green” plain leather version of the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro, and will bring you a detailed evaluation report in this article.

Appearance

The first reaction to taking on the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro is familiar. Its three dimensions are 163.574.68.16mm. Which is similar to the plain leather version of the Xiaomi Mi 11 we tested last year, and weighs around 10g. Which is the size of a standard 6.73-inch large screen phone.

However, due to the rounded design of the upper and lower left and right edges, the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro is very comfortable to hold, and the PU plain leather also brings just the right friction, and the bare metal is just perfect. It is worth mentioning that the Millet 12 Pro Plain Leather Edition uses a plain skin from Heptex’s eco-friendly PU. Which does not add organic solvents in the production process, reduces carbon emissions, and also meets the environmental protection theme of “wild green”.

The front of the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro is a Samsung AMOLED micro-curved screen with 3200*1440 resolution. Which has a hollow design in the middle and a high screen ratio. Noteworthy. That the R angle of this screen has changed a lot compared to the Xiaomi Mi 11 series. From the R angle and the border is completely different from the harmonious curvature, making people feel more natural and comfortable.

The previous Xiaomi Mi 11 series of “Bagua Array” camera modules have caused a lot of controversy, and this time there are obvious changes in the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro camera module. The entirety has become a vertically rectangular arrangement design, and the main camera and other lenses are delimited by a thin line. Which is still pretty much designed. Inside this camera module are three 50-megapixel cameras that cover the most commonly used focal lengths.

The bezels of Xiaomi mobile phones have always been full of material, and this xiaomi 12 Pro is no exception. The most attractive thing is the symmetrical double speakers with signboards at the top and bottom bezels. Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro this time only has a high and low crossover four-unit speaker design using the previous Xiaomi Mi Tablet 5 Pro. The treble bass is placed in the upper and lower ranges, and the volume is very large, and then the cardan tuning through the Harmon, the sound is very shocking. The current mobile phone release is the industry’s first echelon. Apart from this, Xiaomi’s signature infrared and X-axis linear motor functions have not declined.

This time the Xiaomi 12 Pro packaging comes with a mobile phone case and 120W Gallium Nitride Charging Set. Because the charge management chip has been replaced this time by Xiaomi’s self-developed Surging P1. Hence this single battery cell can achieve 120W fast charge. Which is a big breakthrough in the mobile phone industry, in the following we will further test its charging speed and temperature.

Display

Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro has a 6.73 inch AMOLED display. Whose pixel density is 521ppi and its resolution is 1440 x 3200 pixels. Protected by Corning Gorilla Glass, the front screen of the device features a punch-hole setup with a 120Hz refresh rate.

The quality of the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro screen is worth noting separately. It uses Samsung’s latest E5 material, supports 120Hz LTPO technology, and can automatically match the current application’s frame rate between 1-120Hz. For example, when displaying a still picture, the frequency is converted to 1 Hz. Which realizes the power-saving effect, and when playing 90-frame games, it is converted into 90Hz to achieve tear-proof effect, and the frequency is converted to 120Hz in information flow, Due to which one gets the easy pleasure of full blood.

Also, some system apps also support the unique 10-120Hz sliding speed shift effect in Android mobile phones. Which seems similar to the iPhone 13 Pro’s promotion Adaptive Refresh. With a 480Hz gaming-level refresh rate, the sliding experience is more smooth. But currently, only certain systems can be used with their own apps, and I hope the follow-up MIUI can adapt to more applications as soon as possible.

The harsh quality of this screen is also quite brilliant, its peak brightness can reach 1500nit, and it is a new way to further focus the light on the human eye to achieve the effect of increasing brightness and reducing power consumption. Also uses micro prism technology. The color aspect is not inferior, its mean color deviation value e is only 0.4. Which supports 10bit color depth and wide color gamut, which is a good screen.

Display color deviation value e is only 0.4 & 10bit Color Depth

Finally, in developer mode, there is also a low flicker mode function for DC-like dimming to meet the needs of eye fatigue sensitive groups. But this function cannot be turned on on Xiaomi Mi 12 and 12X with higher refresh rates, and you can turn on as needed.

Performance

Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro 2022 is equipped with the standard Android flagship iron triangle: Snapdragon 8 + LPDDR5 + UFS3.1, and to suppress the heat of Snapdragon 8, 12 Pro uses a large area of ​​graphite sheet and vaporized VC liquid-cooled Is. heating plate, and keeping in mind the needs of daily users and enthusiasts, the Xiaomi 12 series also offers an “Extreme Mode” switch to Developer Mode. The temperature control is more comfortable after opening, and the display is more aggressive. Does it succeed? Let us now open Performance Mode + Extreme Mode to test it.

The first is the theoretical display, we open the external display mode and limit mode to play the points in winter. The actual measurement of the Rabbit V9 version of the running score of 1022932 points, is the first by points, the GPU score has been greatly improved.

Geekbench 5, which represents the performance of the processor, scored 1176 points for the single-core run and 3644 points for the multi-core run. There is about 20% improvement over the Snapdragon 888 in single-core and about 10% for multi-core.

Xiaomi Mi 12 5G  Geekbench Score is 3644

In Androbench, which tests flash memory performance. The running score is shown in the figure, and even in a UFS 3.1 mobile phone, the speed is quite fast, approaching the level of the average NVMe SSD on a PC that is in daily use. , There is a lot of benefit in flow.

Xiaomi Mi 12 5G AndroBench Score

In the 3DMark Wildlife test showing the theoretical performance of the GPU, the 12 Pro scored 9703, which is quite an astonishing compared to the previous generation Snapdragon 888’s five or six thousand points. Which seems to increase by more than 80%. The game experience will improve rapidly.

Theory is theory, we still have to see how the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro feels in the real game. It will eventually overheat and drop the frame? Test environment Room temperature 24 ° C, it should be noted that the current Android 12 frame rate test software also has compatibility problems. Can only plug in the line test, plus we still have the plain leather version of the phone. So the heat dissipation situation is definitely worse than normal games, you will get the phone only after the number of frames is high.

The first is “Glory of Kings”, Xiaomi 12 Pro factory optimized for “Glory of Kings” 120 frame mode. We played for a period of time at the highest quality and under 120 frames, there was no stutter. Basically the whole process full frame by frame, the final average frame to 117 frames, the game experience is extremely excellent.

After the game, we measured the temperature of the fuselage, the maximum temperature is about 36.7 ° C, and the fuselage only feels hot.

Then there’s the Serenity Elite, which isn’t optimized for 90 frames yet, so it was tested in HDR HD Plus 60 frames. As can be seen in the frame-count graph, most of the time it is played at 60 frames. The map dropped only slightly when turned on, the game experience is very smooth, with an average frame rate of 54.9 after 30 minutes of play.

After 30 minutes of play, the maximum temperature is only 35.7 °C, which is hot right now.

It seems that normal online gaming has been completely unable to beat the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro. So let’s test out the most stressful running score software “Original God”. After turning off motion blur with full-height effect, the 12 Pro’s performance is still pretty decent, and the display release is pretty aggressive. The first half of the whole journey is stable at 60 frames, and the second half will have some fluctuations, but it can generally remain smooth, and the average frame rate of the last 30 minutes is 51.1 frames, and the overall game experience is still Good.

The temperature reached its highest peak while playing “Original Gods”, and the maximum temperature measured with a temperature gun has reached 44 °C. But fortunately, in extreme mode, it didn’t lower the frequency enough to meet performance requirements.

Battery

The smartphone features a 4600mAh non-removable Li-Polymer battery equipped with Wireless and Quick Charging v4.0 120W.

This time one of the highlights of the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro is the self-developed Surge P1 power management chip, which solves a major problem in the industry. 120W high-power fast charging and a single battery cannot coexist. Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro not only uses a single battery of 4600mAh. Rather, it also supports 120W wired fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging, with the default mode measured from 1% to 100% taking only 25 minutes. The official said that if it is opened in rapid mode only 18 minutes, the curve is drawn almost in a straight line. Which is a rarity in a single cell phone, it seems that the Surging P1 is doing really well.

Temperature While Charging

So would such a fast charge be too hot? We used the temperature gun for viewing, the maximum temperature while charging is around 37.2 degrees Celsius, and the temperature is almost the same when playing normal games.

Note: This temperature is acceptable, but it is still recommended not to play games while charging.

Camera

Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro has a triple camera setup at the back. Which includes 50MP f/1.9 primary camera, 50MP f/2.2 ultra-wide angle camera and 50MP f/1.9 camera. Including touch-to-focus, face detection. Digital zoom and auto flash features. There is a 32MP primary camera on the front for clicking amazing pictures with perfect accuracy.

The image module is the highlight of the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro, both the hardware and the software are attractive. Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro adopts a rear 5000W main camera + 5000W ultra-wide angle + 5000W telephoto triple camera combination, the main camera of which is Sony IMX707. Telephoto and ultra-wide angle are the Samsung S5KJN1, neither of which count.

We chose Qingdao Stone Alder as the shooting location in the evening, and the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro found that environments with a large light ratio enabled HDR mode automatically. It is not difficult to see from the sample that the stone wall texture inside the cave presented by Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro is rich in detail and has no obvious noise, and no spillover phenomenon of sky and water surface reflections, and Picture tolerance is excellent. Although the traces of the algorithm are more obvious at the junction of the sky and the stone wall, the flaws are not hidden.

We also use the ultra-wide angle lens to compare the imaging effect of HDR, and it is clear that after HDR is turned on, whether it is the shadow of the rock on the left or the surface of the ocean Better than the absence of HDR.

Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro is relatively realistic for color restoration, and there is no color defect phenomenon in the sky.

From the above test, the author can feel that the camera speed of Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro is quite fast. Probably because the MUI13 camera has been re-tuned. So let’s see how its night scene does.

Overall, the Xiaomi Mi 12 Pro has day time imaging quality, but the clarity and light intake at night still need to be improved. However, its shooting speed is really fast. Whether it requires long exposure to the scene, it can bring a super fast capture experience.
