Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Explorer Review

Score: 91.5 / 100

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Explorer is a very high quality device released more than a year ago, provisioned with a high-tech 2600 MHz Octa-Core processing unit, a big size 6.7-inches screen, and 2 cameras, a 200 MP back side camera and a 16 mega-pixels front camera. That's all? No, it's only the shortest summary.

This cellphone is a bit heavy for a cellphone of this size, weighting 7.32 ounces. The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Explorer is just 6.41 inches long and 2.99 inches wide, but it still manages to hold a 6.7" screen. Being just 0.35" thick,the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Explorer is very slim and stilized. This cellphone construction is a mix of Glass and Aluminum . Xiaomi justmade this phone in color black.

Xiaomi designed this cellphone with a beautiful 6.7 inches display, and a 1080 x 2400 resolution, which makes all images and videos look absolutely great.

Xiaomi decided to build this phone with a MediaTek Dimensity 1080 MT6877V (6 nm) system chip, which holds an extremely powerful Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2.6 gigahertz with a big 8 GB of RAM. A good point of the Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Explorer is its inmense 256 GB internal storage memory and while it doesn't count with a slot for an external memory card, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games currently available without worrying about running out of space at all.

This phone has two cameras, a 200 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 16 MP front facing camera. Its back facing camera has a f/1.7 aperture so it can take excellent pictures even in low lighting conditions. It can also film videos up to 3840x2160 (4K) at 30 fps, and 1280x720 HD slow motion videos at 960 frames per second (32 times slower ).

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Explorer has a 4300 mAh incredible non-removable battery that provides this phone an amazing battery life. An issue to take into account is that this device's battery isn't removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to last shorter, whereas with so much capacity you will probably discard this phone before that happens.

This cellphone has wi-fi capability (which can be provided to other devices acting as a wireless modem or router), 5G incredibly high bandiwdth connection type, 4G (LTE-A) high bandwidth internet connection and also HSPA+ internet connection (a bit slower 4G network) and 3G fast internet connection, over HSDPA technologies. This cellphone uses a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

This cellphone also includes many useful features as Fingerprint ID, Near Field Communication (NFC), Infrared Transmitter, Bluetooth (provides communication with other bluetooth devices, computers and accessories) and GPS Navigation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

It doesn't matter whether you want a phone for work, are looking for a cellphone for playing games, want it to take tons of photographs or will use it as a social cellphone, this phone is definitely very appropiate for you.
