Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G Review

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G's outstanding 200-megapixel camera is its standout feature. The best feature of the phone is that it takes incredibly clear and detailed pictures. This phone's quick charging time is yet another fantastic feature. It is even faster than previous Redmi Note smartphones. The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G costs more, though, as a result of these premium features. It costs more than the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G from before and is almost the same as the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge in price.

The phone's entry-level model, which costs Rs. 29,999, comes with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. Additionally, Xiaomi gave us a model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of additional storage.

Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G Design

The glass body makes the holding experience of the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G very pleasant. The phone's back curves towards the flat plastic frame even though it weighs only about 208g. This makes it easy to hold for extended periods of time without getting tired. The phone feels light in hand because its weight is evenly distributed. Additionally, the phone has an IP53 rating, which indicates that it can withstand light water splashes. Therefore, users need not be concerned if their phone unintentionally comes into contact with some water.

Xiaomi Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G is also available in Arctic White colour, which looks really nice. The phone is shiny, which makes it stand out and appear pricey. Compared to Obsidian Black and Iceberg Blue colours, the white colour is better at concealing fingerprints and smudges despite being glossy. The phone does, however, wiggle slightly when used on a flat surface, which is something unusual. The camera module protrudes slightly, which causes this.

There are various items on the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G's top. There is a microphone cutout, an IR emitter, a 3.5mm audio jack where users can plug in their headphones, and a fake secondary speaker cutout. The phone's earpiece functions as a second speaker and a sound output port. The sound is loud when both speakers are used at the same time. However their may be some distortion in the sound if the volume is turned up too high. The speakers had the clearest sound and weren't overly loud at about 70% of their maximum volume.

The 6.67-inch AMOLED display on the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G gives it a gorgeous look. As a result, the colours and visual quality are excellent when watching videos or playing games on phone. Due to the display's brightness, users can easily see the screen outside in the sunlight.

Everything on the screen appears more realistic because it can display over a billion different colours. Since the screen has a high resolution, the image is crystal clear and rich in detail. The phone is compatible with specialised technologies like Dolby Vision HDR and HDR10, which enhance the colours and contrast of videos when viewed on well-known apps like Netflix.

When it comes to watching videos and other similar activities, the Realme 10 Pro+ 5G is a little superior to the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G. The screen on the Realme phone has very thin borders around it and curves at the edges. It looks as though the image is wrapping around you, which is really cool because it gives the impression that you are part of the action.

However, if you prefer a flat screen, the Redmi phone is still excellent and won't let you down. Similar to how a TV shows various frames per second, the Redmi's screen also modifies how quickly it refreshes. Depending on what you're doing on the phone, this makes the image look nicer and smoother.

Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G Specifications and Software

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G has a special chip inside it called MediaTek Dimensity 1080. This chip helps the phone work really fast and smoothly.

A unique piece of software called MIUI 13 that is based on Android 12 is used by the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G. The phone comes with MIUI 13, though the most recent MIUI 14 with Android 13 would have been nice option. The manufacturer of the phone, Xiaomi, has guaranteed that in the future, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G will receive updates for Android 13 and even Android 14. By offering updates over a four-year period, they will also guarantee the phone's security. It's similar to how your phone continually gets better and gains new features.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G's MIUI 13 software gives you a lot of customization options. The always-on display can be customised, and Floating Windows is a fun feature that many people enjoy. With some improvements in the background, MIUI 13 also focuses on making the phone function better and faster.

The majority of apps remain open and accessible thanks to the effective memory management of the phone. It's okay if some apps need to reload if they are too large. You can also get rid of any apps you don't need or use, leaving only the ones you do. It's like getting a phone that does everything you want it to do.

Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G Performance and Battery Life

The SoC (System on a Chip), an improved and faster processor, is found inside the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G. It's an improvement over the phone's earlier model, the Snapdragon 695. Like the SoC in the Xiaomi 11i HyperCharge phone, the new SoC is comparable. The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G functions faster and better as a result, despite the fact that it might not seem like a significant change. Everything you typically do on your phone can be done on this device without any issues. This makes the phone useful for everyday tasks.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G excels at multitasking, quickly opening apps, and fluidly playing games. It is very smooth to play Call of Duty: Mobile and Asphalt 9 Legends. In Call of Duty, you will get the option of playing with lower graphics for quicker performance or higher graphics for a more attractive appearance. In either case, the game played well and was enjoyable.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G doesn't get hot when you play games on it for a long time. Possible explanations for this include the phone's unique cooling system, which prevents it from overheating, or the cool climate in India. The phone doesn't gets heated up if you continuously play games for long hours.

Geekbench yielded results of 749 for the single-core test and 2165 for the multi-core test for the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G. These results were marginally worse than those of the Realme 10 Pro+ 5G.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G's battery can typically be used moderately or lightly by most users and last all day. However, the battery may run out by the end of the day if you use it frequently, such as while playing games and simultaneously recording videos. When BoostCharge is activated, the phone charges quickly and easily, taking about 25 minutes to go from zero to 100%. Make sure BoostCharge is selected in the Battery Settings section and that it is turned on.

Even though it takes a little bit longer to charge fully than they estimated (19 minutes), it's still acceptable. The phone's battery last for 15 hours and 23 minutes if you continuously play HD videos. The Realme 10 Pro+ 5G's battery, on the other hand, runs up to 19 hours and 43 minutes.

As a result, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G is a convenient phone to use all day long. It also has a good battery life and charges fairly quickly.

Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G Cameras

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G has a unique feature that sets it apart, and that is its camera configuration. It can take incredibly clear and detailed pictures thanks to its 200 megapixel ultra-high-resolution main camera. Additionally, there is an 8-megapixel camera that can take wide-angle pictures, allowing you to include more in your pictures. It also has a 2-megapixel camera for close-up shots, which can record minute details.

You will not get the 5-megapixel tele-macro camera sensor found in some of other Xiaomi phones. Xiaomi in an interview said that they had some difficulties obtaining the necessary components for that camera and were forced to use a 2-megapixel model instead. Xiaomi claims that the 2-megapixel camera is still adequate for taking attractive close-up pictures.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G can take fantastic photos because it has a 16-megapixel front camera for selfies.

The main camera of the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G takes really nice pictures with bright colors and a wide range of details. Even though the camera's sensor is quite big, it quickly captures photos when you press the button to take a picture. Sometimes, when there's bright sunlight or strong lights in the scene, you might notice a tiny bit of color distortion around the edges of the objects. But overall, the camera does a great job capturing beautiful images.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G's main camera still performs admirably at night. The pictures' graininess is lessened, and the darker areas of the image are more clearly visible. The images might appear slightly less sharp when using Night mode, though, due to the strong noise reduction. The bright areas in the images are effectively controlled, and users will be surprised to see that how the photos taken in dark appears natural without any bluish tint.

On the other hand, the Portrait mode is not as good as expected. Too much of the background gets blurred, which gives the effect an unnatural appearance. Xiaomi needs to make this better. The overall sharpness in this mode also seemed a little excessive.

With a 120-degree field of view, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G's ultra-wide camera gives users a wider perspective. Despite the software's best efforts, there is some distortion near the edges of the images. Compared to photos taken with the main camera, the ultra-wide camera's photos also have warmer-looking colours.

On this phone, you will notice that the majority of the ultra-wide photos had a faintly pinkish tint. As a result, in some images captured by the ultra-wide camera, the colours might not appear to be accurate enough.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G occasionally exhibits a discernible lag when switching between the primary and ultra-wide cameras. It is preferable to use the macro sensor when there is good lighting because the photos taken with it may have a lot of noise in low-light situations.

Using the front camera for selfies can be challenging when trying to achieve the ideal skin tone. The selfies were clear and had a light smoothing effect on the skin, but occasionally in some of the photos it may seem unnatural. This means that the front camera may not always capture skin tones accurately.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G's rear camera is capable of recording crisp, detailed 4K videos at a rate of 30 frames per second. The front camera can record videos at a resolution of up to 1080p at a frame rate of 60 fps, which is also useful for getting smooth, clear video.

The cameras' subject exposure in pictures and videos is accurate, but their dynamic range performance?which measures how well the camera handles both bright and dark areas in a scene?is only average.

The hardware is compatible with the phone's camera features. There are several shooting options, including 50-megapixel and 200-megapixel image capture modes, as well as Long exposure, Pro, Vlog, and Ultra HD modes. One intriguing MIUI feature is AI SkyScaping, which enables you to alter the sky's colour in your photos without changing the image's overall colour scheme.


With so many upgrades over its previous mobiles, the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G is a fantastic option. It is well-built, has a gorgeous display, and has excellent camera performance. It also has a capable processor that functions well and a lightning-fast charging rate. A decent amount of time can be achieved with the battery life, which is also good.

The fact that it doesn't ship with the most recent Android 13 operating system is the only disappointment. But there is still a chance that it will get the Android 13 update soon. Overall, this phone is fantastic and has lots of great features.

The Redmi Note 12 Pro+ 5G makes up for the shortcomings of the Redmi Note 11 Pro+ 5G by providing a potent and complete package. It has all the features you could want despite being the most expensive Redmi Note phone ever. This phone has everything you need and more if you focus on its features rather than its brand name.
