Xiaomi 12 at the best price?

A beautiful smartphone that feels good in your hand

Once in the hands, the Xiaomi 12 has the effect of a small smartphone with a successful appearance in a world full of large slabs. With a diagonal of 6.28 inches, it is really pleasant to handle thanks to its lightness and thinness. On the display side, it is based on 12 very bright and contrasting Full HD + Amoled panels. Watching content is a pleasure, and even more so with two Harman Kardon speakers compatible with Dolby Atmos. The interface also has a refresh rate that can go up to 120 Hz for better fluidity.

On the back, there is a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle and a 5-megapixel telemacro. Overall, the Xiaomi 12 will be a good companion, especially thanks to its prime lens, but it won’t be brilliant for beginner photographers.

Daily performance and pleasant fast charging

Inside the Xiaomi 12, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip powers everything. In our test, the smartphone raised the temperature to a level that could make it uncomfortable even while playing games. This heating is brought about in the context of intensive use and especially during the launch of greedy games. Otherwise, this configuration is quite effective on a daily basis. You can still count on a smooth experience and even a 5G network. Note that you can also install Android 13 beta.

Finally, the Xiaomi 12 has a 4500 mAh battery to keep it going. Apart from that, it doesn’t shine with its staying power of one day with moderate usage. Fortunately, its 67W fast charging saves the day, as it allows you to quickly recharge the battery. In our test, the Xiaomi phone charged from 28% to 98% in just 30 minutes.
