Xiaomi 12 Review

Score: 78.8 / 100

Xiaomi 12 is an absolutely amazing Android device released more than a year ago, which counts with a large 6.3" display, and two cameras, a 50 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 32 MP front camera.

This cellphone has a beautiful design, with a thickness of just 0.32 inches. This cellphone is a very compact device, considering it has a 6.3 inches display and it is only 6.01 inches long and 2.75 inches wide. Apparently Xiaomi didn't care much about the weight in this 6.31 oz phone. The Xiaomi 12 is available in many different color variations: black, blue, green and pink. About its construction, the Xiaomi 12 is mainly built with Glass and Aluminum .

Xiaomi equipped the Xiaomi 12 with a high-tech 6.3-inches screen, and a resolution of 1080 x 2400 , providing this cellphone with a perfect image quality.

A great advantage of this cellphone is its inmense 128 GB internal memory and though it doesn't count with an SD card slot, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of apps and even the heaviest games available nowadays without even thinking about filling the cellphone.

The Xiaomi 12 features two cameras, a 50 MP back side camera and a 32 megapixels front facing camera. this phone's back side camera has a maximum F1.9 aperture so it can take very nice pictures even in poorly lit environments. It is capable of filming 7680x4320 videos at 24 fps, and slow-motion videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 960 fps (32 times slower than reality).

This cellphone features an inmense 4500 mAh non-replaceable battery providing this cellphone an incredibly long battery life. An issue to evaluate is that this phone's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to live shorter, although with so much capacity you will probably replace this phone before it happens.

This cellphone offers wifi capability (and it can share it with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G cutting edge connectivity, LTE-A (4G) high speed data connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (which is a lower speed 4G type) and the fastest 3G data connection, supported by HSDPA technologies. The Xiaomi 12 comes with two Nano SIM cards so it's able to use two different phone lines and even different carriers at the same time.

This device also features a wide range of interesting features as Biometric fingerprint, Wireless charging capability, NFC, Infrared Blaster, Bluetooth (for communication with other bluetooth devices, computers and accessories) and GPS Geolocation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Xiaomi 12 is probably the right choice no matter if you want a cellphone mostly for internet broswing and social networks, want it for work, need a device for gaming or are a photography fan.
