Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G First Impression
5g The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G is Xiaomi’s newest mid-range phone in the Indian market. After the Note 11 Pro + 5G, which wasn’t as much of a market leader as many people had thought, comes the flagship Note 12. To address this void, Xiaomi has released the Note 12 Pro+ 5G, which has some industry-first components.
The Note 12 Pro+ 5G’s most prominent feature is its 200-megapixel primary camera. In addition to being the quickest charger, the Redmi Note is the best phone overall. However, the increased cost is a natural consequence of using cutting-edge and first-in-segment components. It’s more extensive and more expensive than the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge and the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G. (Review).
Consider getting the more costly Note 12 Pro+ 5G. Our comprehensive review is here for your perusal.
Indian retail price for the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G
The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G storage capacity may be set to 128GB or 256 GB. The phone has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage space in its basic configuration. The price is a hefty Rs. 29,999. Xiaomi provided us with a model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The asking price is 32,999 Indian rupees.
Must Read: Priced at Rs. 15,999 and packing 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, the Infinix Zero 20 is a steal.
The layout of the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G
Glass makes the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G feel premium. The phone weighs roughly 208g, but with its curved back panel and a flat plastic frame, you won’t have trouble holding it for extended periods. The IP53 rating indicates that the gadget is protected against brief submersion in water.
The Arctic White Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G that Xiaomi provided us is, in my opinion, the most aesthetically pleasing option. The sleek, polished exterior gives the impression that the phone is high quality. To a greater extent than Obsidian Black and Iceberg Blue, the white paint conceals fingerprints and smudges, despite its shine. The only thing I didn’t enjoy about the phone’s shaky performance when utilized on a flat surface was caused by the protruding camera module.
Modular Organic LED (AMOLED) screen
The 6.67-inch AMOLED screen on the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G is bright enough for usage in direct sunlight. It’s a pretty multimedia package. The screen supports over a billion distinct colors and can display images in full HD+ definition. The stuff you consume has vibrant colors and deep blacks. Dolby Vision HDR, WideVine L1, and HDR10 are all supported by well-known applications like Netflix.
For multimedia, though, I prefer the Realme 10 Pro+ 5G (Review) over the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G. The display’s rounded corners and narrow bezels immerse you in action on screen. The Note 12 Pro+ 5G is an excellent choice if you prefer a flat screen. Depending on the content, the Redmi’s screen may refresh at 30Hz, 60Hz, 90Hz, or 120Hz.
Specifications and program
A MediaTek Dimensity 1080 SoC with a Mali G68 GPU powers the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G. There is 6 nm in this chip. The battery capacity of this phone is 4980 mAh, and it supports rapid charging at 120W. It supports 10 5G bands in India in addition to Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, etc. The phone can recognize the user’s face using artificial intelligence and features a fingerprint scanner.
The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G ships with MIUI 13, a custom skin built over Android 12. Instead of the older MIUI 13, I was hoping for the brand-new MIUI 14 skin based on Android 13. Despite the lack of a release date, Xiaomi has promised four years’ worth of security patches and Android 13 and 14 on the phone.
The newest Nokia feature phone Nokia 5710 XpressAudio is powered by a Unisoc T107 system-on-chip and features a 2.4-inch QVGA display.
Even in its 13th iteration, MIUI has many options for users to personalize their experience. Among these features are the ubiquitous Floating Windows and the customizable Always-on Display (AoD). Improvements to the underlying operating system are the focus of MIUI 13, which includes a new file management system, a higher CPU priority, and more. Android 12 has a Privacy Dashboard and Permission Manager, and it also has support for new widgets.
Power consumption of the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G
The Redmi Note, 12 Pro+ 5G’s SoC, is superior to the Note 12 Pro’s Snapdragon 695 SoC. However, considering the cost and features, consider it a substitute for the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge, even though it doesn’t appear to be an improvement. Yet this shouldn’t lead you to believe that the Note 12 Pro+ 5G’s performance core isn’t up to the duty of regular use.
The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G is perfect for gaming, switching apps, and waiting. Playing Call of Duty: Mobile with Asphalt 9 Legends was enjoyable and easy. Play the first game at “Max” framerate and “Low” visuals. Still, you may enjoy the game with “Very High” aesthetics and a smoother experience if you’re ready to play at a “Very High” framerate.
Despite taking longer than 19 minutes, I’m happy with a phone that lasts all day and charges in 30 minutes without Boost Charging. An HD video loop test drains the phone’s battery for 15 hours and 23 minutes. Our Realme 10 Pro+ 5G lasted 19 hours and 43 minutes. Games overheat the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G? No. The phone’s vapor cooling chamber or northern India’s cold may be to blame. Games worked fine after 45 minutes. The phone heated up during the 4,38,678-point AnTuTu benchmark. The processor-equipped Realme 10 Pro+ 5G scored 5,04,626.
The phone is the most expensive Redmi Note ever made, but if you ignore the name and look at what it offers, it almost hits all the marks.
